"3D Guild Award" Unveiled at Cannes

This Friday 15 May, on the American Pavilion, at the heart of Festival de Cannes, a press conference unveiled to the world of cinema the creation of a new award destined to recognize and honor the best productions and other masterpieces in stereoscopic 3D.

The announcement of this new award for 3D - which could quickly reach the notoriety of some of the world's best-known awards - followed the announcement, at the same press conference, of another initiative just as strategically important for 3D, i.e. the creation of a new association called the "3D Guild", conceived to link the professionals from all over the world who share a passion for 3D, in order to help them to work in concert, to push always further back the fascinating and sometimes surprising frontiers of 3D.

Aurora Borealis 3D

Ikuo Nakamura, an award-winning Japanese filmmaker, is maybe the first artist to shoot the aurora borealis in stereoscopic 3D format. Ikuo Nakamura did it in the Northwest Territories.

Ikuo Nakamura captured the Northern Lights in 3D, creating a stereoscopic image of the phenomenon by placing 2 cameras 5 miles apart. The 11-minute short was projected along with "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (Brooklyn, USA) on May 3, 2015.

"Freightliner Inspiration", a Semi-autonomous Truck with 3D Cameras

At a presentation atop the Hoover Dam, Freightliner and Daimler pulled the wraps off of their Freightliner Inspiration truck, the first self-driving commercial truck in the world to receive a full license to operate on public roads, at least in the State of Nevada, USA. The Freightliner Inspiration is still a test vehicle; don't expect to buy one before 2025!

 In hardware terms, the truck isn’t much different from the latest trucks and passenger cars Daimler is putting on the road. A stereoscopic camera reads lane lines. Short- and long-range radar scan the road up to 800 feet ahead for obstacles. No sensors face backward, because they’re not needed. There’s no vehicle-to-vehicle communication, no LIDaR. The software algorithms are adjusted versions of those developed for use in Mercedes-Benz’s autonomous vehicles. Video persentation here under.

Tiko, the Small 3D Printer You Will Buy This Year

Tiko is the 3D printer you’ve been waiting for. Simple, accessible, and dependable, all for a pledge of $179. Tiko was successful on Kickstarter with close to $3M pledged  of the $100,000 goal.

Tiko is small, easy to use, wireless, cheap, and non proprietary. Tiko uses standard 1.75mm filament on a standard 1kg 165mm (6.5 in.) diameter spool, so you can experiment with different materials. Tiko also detects when you’re out of filament and pauses the print so you can reload and resume.  Production and first shipping is expected in November 2015. Video demo and details here under.
