Light Field Photos and Video
Well, I mentioned 3D/VR audio in a previous post and now I want to introduce you to 3D/VR Photos and video. You may have wondered how they were able to create characters for movies based on real people that look so much like them. Well, this explains how. You may also have seen cameras that take a picture and allow you, after the picture was taken, to change the depth of field or focus of the lens.
This video, one of a series, explains the concepts and technology that is coming soon. Imagine not needing green screen in video. Imagine taking a video and in VR walking a meter back and forth, front to back like in the real world. This technology already exists and is being used by Hollywood and will soon be n your smart phone.
Technology is advancing so rapidly that I was told that in ten years VR will be indistinguishable from reality. In five years speech recognition will be 100% accurate.
Imagine now, two drones hovering with these light field cameras and software that will stitch and remove unwanted items (like the drones). We could even have real time VR that you can walk around in, including real time items or objects, scoreboards added.
I think you can start to see the exponential technological curve.
