Immersive 3D

One of the smaller projects we will run this year in FBE revolves around some nice kit for handling our capacity for presenting real-time environments. As the student (and research) models arent optimised in the same way that game levels are, they take some more grunt and people like to push the boundaries - this should help us do exactly that. One piece of this puzzle is to actually get stereoscopic viewing alive in a more approachable way, without going up to iCinema etc. NVidia and others are pushing ways to get 3D on the desktop more prevlent and we will have to grab hold of one or two as that is the next logical step, esp with movies taking the lead here.

Anyhow, here is a vid showing some pretty high levels of immersion with a little projection room and 3D. The effect us much like the iCinema setup, but doing the floor I think takes it all to another level:
