3D-enabled hardware is here – and there's not a headset in sight
One of the challenges of leading a bleeding-edge 3D software technology start-up is finding compatible hardware to enable us and our customers to use our SaaS product to its full potential.
Our patented 3D image technology is the world’s most accurate image fusion technology for 3D visualization of air, land and sea. It helps quickly assess immediate critical needs, such as emergencies or natural disasters and it can help visualize future opportunities, such as urban development, tourism and conservation.
But if your desktop or mobile device only shows you the world in 2D, we have a problem because you can't take full advantage of what we offer.
Enter Mopic, a South Korean company that specializes in researching and developing 3D stereoscopic devices. The CES 2019 honouree has developed and is now shipping a 3D monitor that allows the viewer to see the images on the screen in 3D – and there is no need for special glasses or clunky VR goggles.
While the gaming community is rightfully excited about Mopic's new technology, Tom, I and the team at 3D Planeta believe this is also a game-changer for enterprise, commercial and public sector applications.
I'm fascinated by how it all works. Atop the monitor is a camera that tracks the viewer's eyes at a rate of 30 times per second, allowing for real-time rendering of 3D content as the viewer's eyes move.
The monitor can be connected to any PC via a simple HDMI cable, allowing users to use 3D Planeta's offerings with ease. Both Navec™, which provides unprecedented awareness of terrain, structures and objects of interest in our 3D aerial images, and our Helixx-3D™ engine, which gives operators and analysts the ability to assess the terrain in true 3D, work seamlessly on the Mopic monitor.
If you're in Fredericton and curious to see what it's all about give us a call and we'll arrange a pandemic-safe demonstration.
