New 3D Technology May Put Your Face in PlayStation Home


249w ago - In a recent interview with PhysOrg, Dr. David McKinnon, a researcher from Queensland University of Technology and the Australasian CRC for Interaction Design (ACID), has mentioned a revolutionary new piece of software that could put users' faces in Sony's PlayStation Home.

The background research took eight years to develop, allowing anyone to convert 2D images into 3D models... and eventually these could be uploaded to PlayStation Home.

To quote: "Another application is allowing people to create 3D models of their own face to use on their avatar in computer games or 3D social networking sites such as Second Life or Sony's Home."

The free prototype software can be found on the http://3Dsee.net Web site.

To create a 3D image, the software requires between five and 15 consecutive, overlapping photos of an object. The photos must overlap each other by a minimum of 80 to 90 per cent.
