Nick Brown, Stereographer, Stereo D
Something uniquely 3D to share today!  Nick Brown is a stereographer at Stereo D and was the Supervising Stereographer for Blade Runner 2049.  He is going to be giving a special lecture about Blade Runner 2049 at Immersed and how they meticulously converted the film from its original 2D format to magical 3D.  We were impressed with what we saw especially when you consider it was a conversion versus a native 3D camera shoot.  While we aren't normally big on 3D conversions, the work speaks for itself.  After Immersed, we'll share a review of what stood out for us and what has changed in the 3D market since we last covered stereoscopic 3D film.

His main session is on the Saturday, so you can get a single day pass for his lecture among other amazing speakers that day.

MTBS on Computer America


This turned out really nicely!  Yours truly got interviewed to talk about stereoscopic 3D, virtual reality, and augmented reality on Computer America.  It was a fun interview; hope you like the way it turned out.

Apple Impresses With Augmented Reality


This was showcased during the iPhone 8 reveal. Looks like ARKit is going to deliver some amazing augmented reality opportunities!

"The Machines" by Directive Games is a tabletop game where opponents fight over a map in real time and on a household tabletop. While details are scant, the tracking appears to be handled via a hybrid of the iPhone 8's camera and a multitude of sensors.

Whatever they are doing, it appears to work! Very impressive.

Microsoft Mixed Reality Update

Mixed Reality
So it looks like Microsoft and their partners (Dell, Acer, HP, Lenovo, and ASUS) are building up to full swing.  This collection of mixed reality devices are already on track to support the SteamVR API for probable out of the box compatibility with existing VR titles, Microsoft has been showing off their new virtual reality hand controllers, and while all the products are tethered, they all feature inside-out tracking which means they get all the positional benefits without external cameras or infrared laser emitters.  Finally, we will have to see if indeed it's apples to apples, but their pricing has proven to be very competitive with many devices expected to run for less than $400 USD.

Your thoughts?
