Scan room, explore virtually

[Patrick] directed us to his project for alternate realism. The final goal is to be able to walk around in a space wearing a head mounted display, exploring a virtual representation of that space. This virtual representation could be altered, stylized, augmented and modified in countless ways. It is an exploration in perception, similar to enjoying different styles of painting, we could enjoy different styles of viewing a real space. Currently, it isn’t quite real time. He has to scan a room with a somewhat bulky device, then plug into his display to explore it. Being able to scan quickly and reliably enough shouldn’t be far off. [Patrick] notes that others have done almost real time scans at home already.

    wow DmC, that’s the lamest thing Ive ever seen on here

    Interesting project tho, sounds like it could be fun to mess with if it ever gets past the prototype stages

    Check out S.L.A.M. Similar idea I think but far more interesting.

    I like the ‘Volumetric Shading’ but that’s about it. The rest should be revamped to something truly unique or useful.
