This was a very special exhibit showcased at SIGGRAPH 2015, and while most were enamored by its stereoscopic 3D backbone, its importance and ramifications go a lot further than most realize.
The University of Southern California has been recording the last generation of holocaust survivors in an interactive multi-view 3D format. The outcome is most closely compared to the way Superman talks to his deceased father in the original movies, except this is real and personally tells just one of the stories from one of the darkest chapters in human history. Despite the limitations of modern technology, it's so human and so convincing a media, it feels rude to look away when spoken to.
Immersed Europe has two big announcements today. First, we created a special one day pass for 199 € that is ordered through Eventbrite. This pass is ONLY for September 4, 2015. While this can’t be combined with other discount offers, this is a very affordable way to see part of the conference and also enjoy the public exhibit. If you use a 100€ discount code (e.g. "MTBSimmersedeurope"), it’s only a little bit more to enjoy two full days of immersive goodness in Murcia, Spain!
