The way stereoscopic vision influences and constitutes our perception
Being equipped with the capacity to perceive three-dimensional structures, the human brain is able to evaluate the size, distance as well as the arrangement of objects. Without this capacity objects would seem to be "flat", two-dimensional – as if they were cut-out. Stereoscopic vision enables us to understand complex contexts and structures which would remain concealed with two-dimensional representation. If one tries, for instance, to get a thread into the eye of a needle it becomes obvious that this is utterly difficult squinting one eye. This also applies to other scenarios such as filling a glass with water with one eye closed. As mentioned above – the second eye is, to say the least, essential.
Stereoscopic vision is only possible if an object is focussed upon from different angles of vision. Each eye produces a different picture of the object. Actually, the picture of the object we perceive should be doubled or duplicated – but it is not. The human brain is capable of calculating a separate overall picture. As a matter of fact this picture enables us to properly evaluate spatial contexts.
By using smart 3D it is possible now to facilitate this natural phenomenon in order to achieve the perfect solution – you actually get the thread through the eye of the needle at once!
Mobile 3d-stereo complete solution
The application of specific technology such as projectors and glasses create three-dimensional images (including depth information) on the basis of “flat” (two-dimensional) scenarios. Considerable investments as well as complex data preparation for three-dimensional stereo and virtual reality is so yesterday! Nowadays it is possible to create impressive, comprehensive spatial images in the twinkle of an eye, using a notebook supporting CAD, a stereo projector, stereo glasses as well as a 3D mouse.
smart 3D by IMSYS effectively integrates all the components which are needed for professional stereo projection. These components can be easily deposited and transported in a handy trolley. IMSYS places great emphasis on a state of the art design of the components – mobility, too, is a cutting-edge characteristic of the smart 3D system. Owing to the fact that all these features make the smart 3D an easy to use and highly effective system for three-dimensional representation of images, it can be regarded as the perfect support in different environments such as trade shows, external meetings at your customers’ office or mobile workplace solution. The new active-stereo-projector AS3D by Projectiondesign allows projecting images onto every light surface (a white wall, for instance). It is also possible to implement mono-contents into the presentation by simply switching from stereo representation to mono representation.
Arousing curiosity – bringing across your message
The use of three-dimensional representations creates a lasting impression with your customers and everybody who attends external or internal meetings where three-dimensional, highly sophisticated technology is used to bring across and substantiate your message. Complex contexts can be represented most effectively and comprehensibly. Spatial images create profound impressions with – also, the attention of the audience is drawn to the message which is essential to you. Thus advertising messages can be anchored deeply.
Increasing quality, reducing expenditure
smart 3D also offers decisive advantages in the context of design as well as engineering applications. Structures, dimensions and functions can be easily grasped by the audience. Therefore communication between different departments becomes more and more efficient and decisions will be taken on a safe basis. Real prototypes can be simulated in a three-dimensional environment. The efficiency of the first physical prototype of your product can be increased considerably – and thus time and money can be saved.
Inspiration and entertainment
Beside the measurable advantages in technical contexts such as design, engineering, architecture or the medical as well as stereoscopic realm, there are also valuable effects in terms of entertainment, inspiration and fun. You can also use smart 3D in your private life, to play games, test and develop three-dimensional games and – in each of these cases – achieve a lasting positive impression.
