Imagine watching 3D animation without having to wear those cumbersome special glasses.
Temasek Polytechnic (TP), together with IM Innovations, has jointly developed the expertise to convert, create and transform standard 3D animation into 3D autostereoscopic experiences.
What this means is that audiences can now watch objects come to life in their full brilliance and literally experience characters jump out of the television screen.
The technology works by allowing the right and left eye to perceive the same things slightly differently, thereby producing three-dimensional effects without the need for special glasses.
Dr Tan Hock Soon, manager, Interactive Digital Centre ASIA, said that their role is, firstly, to let the public know about the technology. Secondly, they would like to train their students and professionals so that they know how to create autostereo content on their own.
