We’re one step closer to the Holodeck with this 20-camera 3D body-capture setup
Have you ever been in a VR conference call and thought, well, I know what everyone looks like from the front, but what about the other sides? The Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications has your back — and theirs. Researchers there have created a powerful multi-camera setup that captures in 3D every aspect of someone and dumps it straight into a VR experience. The goal is to create avatars in virtual reality that are not just photorealistic from certain vantage points, but show the entire person, along with all their presence and gestures. Turns out this requires quite a bit of hardware.
