Stereoscopic Virtual Reality – Now Playing at BBD Studios

Cinema Virtual Reality Has Arrived Virtual Reality (VR), which can be referred to as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated life, replicates an environment that simulates physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds. Virtual reality can recreate sensory experiences, which include virtual taste, sight, smell, sound, and touch. Here at BBD we have […]

Nokia – OZO

Designed and built in Finland, Nokia’s VR camera is made of aluminum, is big about the size of a human head, and weighs less than 10 pounds. The device, which sort of resembles a puffer fish, hosts eight 2K by 2K resolution cameras, each spaced out so the distance between lenses is the same as […]

Lytro – IMMERGE

Ever since Lytro burst onto the scene with its first light-field camera three years ago, it’s done things very differently. The company’s imaging technology has always been groundbreaking: They make still cameras that allow you to capture a shot, then decide where to focus and how to adjust the depth-of-field after the fact. All of […]

“Magic Leap” is Google Glass re-invented to something useful. Instead of using the built in camera to creep people out and record what you see. Magic Leap uses the camera and few special algorithms to produce a 3D environment map in real time. Using the data from the environment map CGI objects are then tracked […]

Google – Project Soli

Project Soli is potentially the technology that will really change the world. It uses radar to interpreter human intent. By using radar they can detect the tiniest movements and piping that into a gesture recognition software you can really see the advantages. Project Soli is gesture control with no visual of physical input. Welcome to […]

Microsoft – Hololens

Microsoft has also announced their plans for VR and its very exciting. It is called “HoloLens” and derives its name from what Microsoft really thinks VR will be. Holographic Computing.

Facebook – Oculus Rift

Oculus was the first to the field with the “Rift” back in 2012. The rift was revolutionary because it proved that low-latency head tracking was very possible and very accurate but more importantly it brought stereoscopic 3D into a fully immersive environment. At the time 3D had so many limitation with glasses, screen and brightness […]
