Random video of the day...

A quick google search didn't reveal any detailed information on those guys. This 3d Scene reconstruction is pretty hyped these days, though. Most companies use kinect sensors in a more or less calibrated fashion. On the IFA for example, I saw a company who had 3 kinect sensors on a rotating stand, one directed upwards, one downwards and one straight. The sensors would rotate 360 ° to scan the scene.

Blimey, does the scanning tech create the model as well as the texture?

It's basically the same technique I used here:

only on a much bigger scale. You take thousands of photos and the algorithm compares them to read the perspective and colour details. On some of the movies there are dark shadows baked, which raises questions on how to combine that with dynamic lighting. However last video from my previous post looks like one of those high dynamic range photos, especially the garbage. The room is pretty evenly lit, which leads me to think that they take multiple exposures or somehow correct brightness levels in the process.

Pretty neat! That might be of some limited use for games.

There's actually game being made called Get Even:

It uses the same scanned locations. Apparently this video combines live footage with scans, hence the question "What is real?". My guess is that SWAT walking is live and the girl is scanned.

I read some interviews in Polish. The technology used to be called Thorskan but they changed it to Infomatrix3D. They say that those videos are outdated and that they scan whole streets using drones.

It's only a model...

There does tend to be a lot left to wish for after watching or reading something put out by IGN =P

 

This was neat, though. It's quite telling that they're a lot more enjoyable/less robotic when they're not talking about something newly released that they reviewed favourably...

When you put them side-by-side like that, you get to see just how impressive it is.

 

It's surprising how many actors from L.A. Noire were already working in Mad Men when they were cast for it. It's worth watching just for Aaron Staton, if you haven't already. Brilliantly realistic and true to the period.

They worked on those little screens?!

 

What?!?

What kind of monitor do you need for a machine that displays no more then 40*25characters? (320x200 pixles, 8-bit colour)

Seems like you entirely missed the computer-stonerage ! B)

Hmmmm... I would like to fire up my own once again, but it used to roast my TVs all the time.

I still have it, though. :wub:

      I was playing Skyrim, got bored fast. Got back to The Dark Mod just for one mission, played "Somewhere above the City" which is not really a great mission but still good, as in above-average.
      My biggest regret is living in this country, where there's a heat wave, I am sweating at 20c and I really wish for temperatures below 5c.

      Is there something wrong with the forums lately, or is it my browser? I've been having trouble formatting posts, and just now I couldn't format anything at all.
      I'm using Vivaldi.
      Usually I have to: select text, click bold, nothing happens, select again, click bold, then it works. 
      Same for other stuff, like creating spoilers, bullet points, links. Nothing works the first time.

      Even though I've been absent a long while, I still find myself dreamily wishing for the free time to do TDM mission development. When working on new research projects I'll find myself involuntarily thinking, "hee hee this could be a fun texture or readable or bit of map architecture." Or I find myself absentmindedly responding out loud to odd noises with a drunkguard-like "must've been rats!"
