Jerobeam Fenderson – Blocks 3D (Anaglyph)

Watch with anaglyph 3D glasses!
red = left eye
cyan = right eye

There should be an option to watch on Google Cardboard when on mobile.
Side by Side version for 3D TV / VR Headsets / etc.: https://youtu.be/q1cc-bEXkTs
Original track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KDek…

What you see is what you hear: The audio signal is fed into a software oscilloscope, where vector graphics are drawn with sound. This is done twice, with slightly rotated images for each eye, i.e. four audio channels have been used.

channel 1: horizontal deflection, left eye
channel 2: vertical deflection, left eye
channel 3: horizontal deflection, right eye
channel 4: vertical deflection, right eye

This video is in stereo because YouTube doesn’t support 4-channel audio, but you can download all the WAVs from http://oscilloscopemusic.com (album download now includes the 4-channel WAV, existing download codes still work!) or https://jerobeamfenderson.bandcamp.co… (2 stereo WAVs).

Major thanks to https://www.youtube.com/hansiraber for all the crazy software!

Software Oscilloscope this video was rendered with: http://asdfg.me/osci (now supports 4-channel audio / stereoscopic 3D :))

Is this really 3D?

 

By: Physics Girl

Originally published on Sep 8, 2015

3D movies and TV are is increasing in popularity, but is any of it truly 3D? How true is the 3D in movie theaters? How do glassess-less 3D TVs work? Try catching a ball with one eye closed. If you find it easy, try having the ball thrown a couple of feet in front of you, or from further away. It becomes increasingly difficult when the throw is off.

FREEZE! an adventure in 100 frames from Job, Joris & Marieke

FREEZE! an adventure in 100 frames from Job, Joris & Marieke on Vimeo.

We made this short loop as part of a 3D printed installation. We 3D printed this entire sequence, frame by frame. For more pictures of the actual installation, visit our website (jobjorisenmarieke.nl) or look at the bottom right of this page.

In a room that looks like our studio, a character emerges from a piece of paper and runs over a table like a madman. He breaks a few things on the table and eventually he jumps into a preserving jar on a shelf. No one knows why he’s in such a rush. All we know is that he doesn’t want to be recognized…

The whole animation is made in CGI, and we used a 3D printer to print each frame. The result is a weird string of characters in different poses. This explains the principles of animation beautifully, without a single bit actually moving. It is a static installation: a frozen movement. If you look closely, you can figure out what happened on that table.

We made the installation for the exhibition MOVE ON…! about animation in Kunsthal KAdE, in the Netherlands. It can be seem until May 10th.

NASA’s 3-D Tour of the International Space Station


By: NASA’s Marshall Center

Published on Nov 3, 2014

Description: During Expedition 31 in 2012, NASA astronaut Don Pettit used a 3-D camera to take viewers on a “floating” tour of the International Space Station. He pointed the camera outside the station portals as well to provide incredible images of the Russian Soyuz capsule docked to the station, the many trusses and solar panels extending from the various nodes, and of his home planet below. (Video: NASA)

Note: You will need red-blue stereoscopic 3D vision glasses to view the video.

This link will take you to a 2D version of the video:
