In July of last year I purchased the LG Optimus 3D, a mobile phone which comes with dual cameras to take spectroscopic images. I’ve been very happy with the camera and consequently have quite a collection of 3D images. However, there are no easy ways to display the 3D photos online – this is why I created “StereoImage”.
StereoImage is a way to display stereoscopic images on a HTML5 canvas. It works on jps and pns files which are fundementally two jpegs / pngs joined together side by side. Using StereoImage a user can quickly switch between different ways of displaying the images.
See it here:
The different ways to show include:
- Horizontal, one on top of the other,
- Vertical, side by side,
- Show just the left,
- Show just the right,
- Flick between both images (at variable rate)
- Stereoscopic – reduce size with circle eye alignment.
- Anaglyph – red and green/blue view (for use with glasses)
The code is open source, so feel free to use it. You can find more details on my website here: http://www.akademy.co.uk/software/stereoimage/ . Download or checkout the code via BitBucket here: https://bitbucket.org/akademy/stereoimage
The samsung running app (called “Samsung Hope Relay”) is a nice idea. Samsung will donate a pound to charity for every mile you walk, run o4 cycle (and probably anything else under a 20mph…), but it records distance so no point using it in the gym! It is a little buggy though:
But hasnt stopped them giving £200’000 so far. Get it quick before the Olympics and raise a bit of money (and probably loose a few pounds!)
Ubuntu 12.04 release is imminent and at the moment Dropbox will not install correctly, here’s how to fix that. (more…)
Just a few hours till my Laser eye surgery… and yes I’m a little nervous. It’s been booked for about a month, but I’ve been so busy I’ve not really given it much thought – but as it’s a approached I’ve been thinking about little else.
I’ve gone through all the material they’ve given, and it explains the whole procedure, interjected with: “This horrific thing could happen” (Eeek!) “but it’s quite rare”… It isn’t really a pleasant read, but a couple of days later you start to understand what will happen on the day and become a little more calmer about it (or possibly just forget all the bad stuff) – if you are having the procedure, don’t leave it to the last minute to read it!
