Stereo Cameras Create More Realistic VR Worlds

A new scanning technique could open the door to even more realistic virtual worlds. The scanning method eschews the standard 3D-mapping to model method, and instead relies on high-resolution video of the human model captured by stereo cameras. Using a system of 32 such cameras, the team was able to film the human model directly in 3D, which the team calls “volumetric video.” This realistic, non-animation image can be then be integrated into both virtual reality worlds as well as realistic scenes.
