Now, how can we do something similar for pennies on the dollar?
We had heard about this technology before, but seeing is believing. Of course to get the real experience you need to physically be in the space, but you might enjoy living vicariously through David’s experience (click here to see the vid in HD instead):

“comprised of three white walls and a floor, all about 10′ x 10′ in size. Onto each surface is projected a high-resolution, stereoscopic image. A viewer stands in the room wearing polarized 3D glasses — like you might use in a 3D movie — with small markers that stick out a bit from the frames.
WATG’s incredible hotel and resort work provide a superb example of the power of this tool. Why not let a client walk through their new resort before ground has even been broken? Take them into one of these and they’ll never settle for blueprints and a miniature model again.

Part of what makes this experience so wonderful is the lack of heavy, complicated headgear. The viewer is free to walk around, and the environment responds to their every move. There’s no training required or cumbersome technology to stand in the way of the content. But the effect doesn’t come cheap: you’ll need over half a million dollars and a lot of space to pull this off.

The markers are illuminated by IR LED floodlights located on the perimeter of the room, and IR-sensitive cameras use those positions to determine the precise location of each eye within the room. From those positions, stereo images for each projector are calculated and rendered on the fly, and the result is absolutely amazing.

Stereoscopic images are projected onto 3 white walls within a 10 ft x 10 ft room and the viewer uses polarized 3D glasses for the experience. IR sensitive cameras track the position of markers fixed onto this 3D glasses to determine the exact location of each eye within the room and the feedback given is used to shift the perpsective of the images projected. We will never really know how it feels as it is a kind of ‘BE there’ experience. Going by the looks, I would say it appears very realistic. The viewer even appears a bit disoriented when you have him standing on the wall’s edge!
Thanks to the good folks at WATG‘s Wimberly Labs, we got a tour today of some truly remarkable visualization and collaboration technology, including EON Reality‘s immersive 3D room.

The cave (or iCube, as we’re told they would prefer we call it) is comprised of three white walls and a floor, all about 10′ x 10’ in size. Onto each surface is projected a high-resolution, stereoscopic image. A viewer stands in the room wearing polarized 3D glasses — like you might use in a 3D movie — with small markers that stick out a bit from the frames.

(BTW, the bummer here is that the projection equipment costs more than half a million dollars.)
