Researchers to Develop 3D Camera with 12,616 Lenses for Super 3D Effect

26 March 2008 By Shashank

U.S. Researchers at the Stanford University are working on a 3 Dimensional camera with 12,616 lenses having 3 megapixel units with a total of 2,229,696 sensors to create a sort of super 3D effect, this 3D camera will not be only taking the pictures but it will also be recording the distances of various parameters in the photograph. The new technology could find applications in areas like 3D printing and virtual games on the internet.

By the use of this technology the photographs taken will be in proper focus and the details will be very high. If you had to point such a 3D camera at someone’s face, it would not only take a photo of that person, but also record the distances to the subject’s eyes, nose ears, chin and such like.

The group of researchers led by Professor Abbas El Gamal, plan to integrate a tiny lens on each array of 16×16 pixels (256 pixels) which would then result in a total of 12,616 lenses.

“It’s like having a lot of cameras on a single chip,” said Keith Fife, a graduate student working with El Gamal.

Here comes the interesting part the researchers working on the Camera technology said that this 3D digital camera may cost less than our existing digital cameras.

The last sentence was the most interesting part. 🙂

Cheaper than our existing digital cameras …. Waiting for this

Dear sir,
My name is n.kumar ,am from tirunelvely(south side of tamilnadu .india).I am from poor family. Am working as a carpander.
I invented one mechanical device. It is used for cinema Industry to make glass free 3d cinema in big screen. It is a world first 3d concept now I published all the details in my website.www.natural3dbigscreen.com .
In my family situation am not able to exposing in my concept.Due to financial problem .So am going to sell my concept in any foreign contry. So can you help for me how can I cantact who and where.
Please guide me what can I do?
Thanyou and Anticipation.
AND
Here I have to explain same this to you.
In my concept consists of moving action. It is used to create BIGSCREEN 3D CINEMA(glassfree).
Lenticular method is used for only two or three picture to make a 3d effect. Already I know in this method we cannot make a 100% 3d effect.
In my concept speed is more than 6000 fps .One more advantage of my concerting we can project in front and back side of the screen.
Now a days the OSIRIS3D trying in this same concept. But still now they did not find . I am verymuch confident to say ,the OSIRIS3D dream is going to possible in my invention.
In my mechanical device only one high speed projector is enough for centralized the screen.
In the projector speed above is 6000 fps . the distance of the frame 0.1 degree .So the glassfree 3d picture display in the screen.
Do you want more clarification see my websit now.www.natural3dbigscreen.com
