Weird Side of 3D: Young/Mature
Communication Agency Ponce Buenos Aires produced one the weirdest stereoscopic ad ever, called "Young/Mature" for Axe-Unilever (a.k.a. Lynx in the UK). In this production, two different movies are offered to your left and right eye, so watch it with one eye closed but NEVER with both as nausea and headache are guaranteed in this case. The 'right' movie shows how to seduce a young blond woman while the 'left' shows more or less the same story with a (slightly) more mature brunette...
"Don't tell my mother l'm in advertising, she thinks l play piano in a whorehouse."
The 3D stereoscopic cinema technology allowed the agency to create two simultaneous stories where the audience may choose to see one or the other just by closing one eye. The cinema experience is via any kind 3D glasses; we offer the red/cyan anaglyph version here under. So grab tow of your colored glasses pairs and watch this video twice, once in red/red mode and the other in cyan/cyan!
NOAA uses 3D Cameras to Check Fish Length
Imagine a time when fish surveys could be done through remote sensing, thus eliminating the need to catch fish via trawling to verify fish school composition, length, weight, and age data.
During the last mission of the NOAA Oscar Dyson ship, called "Alaska Pollock Acoustic Midwater Trawl Survey", 25 tons of pollock were caught, sorted, sexed, and measured, thanks to the state-of-the-art "Cam-Trawl" visible here under!
AutoSpar Picks Asparagus Helped by a 3D Camera
The special-purpose AUTOSPAR vehicle identifies and cuts the asparagus spears with the aid of intelligent 3D stereoscopic image and sensor data processing, electronic drive systems, and mechanical positioning elements, lifts them out of the soil, and then packs them into trays. “After the next nine-month development phase, our aim is that `AutoSpar` will be in the fields by the next asparagus harvest in May 2013", said Universität Bremen (Germany)'s Dr. Ing. Holger Raffel.
With AutoSpar and its 3D stereoscopic cameras, harvesting costs are down to 1 or 2 €/kg instead of 3 to 5 Euros/kg for the manual way.
3 Days Left to Contribute to the Baltimore 3D Mural
This XXIST project was launched to help us fund the creation of a giant anaglyphic 3D mural in Baltimore, MD, USA. Financing is expected from YOU according to the crowdfinancing principle supported by KickStarter. Today, 47 backers have invested between 2 and 25$ in the project, covering 50% of the 3,500$ total budget.
THIS PROJECT WILL ONLY BE FUNDED IF AT LEAST $3,500 IS PLEDGED BY THURSDAY JUL 12, 12:12PM EDT.
3days left for the Big Baltimore 3D mural!
Donations from 2 to 2500$ give access to a variety of 'backers packages'; see details on KickStarter, the world's largest funding platform for creative projects..
Anaglyph 3D is a form of stereoscopic 3D, created by merging two chromatically opposite colored images. When the images are viewed through corresponding colored 3D glasses, the two separate images are merged together by the visual cortex, giving them the perception of dimensionality.
