Anaglyph Desktop

?% | 1

I've just stumbled upon a plugin for Compiz Fusion (it's Beryl and Compiz merged together and will be the future of both projects) that outputs an anaglyphic image (the ones you see in 3D with those blue/red glasses).

yes you heard right: REAL 3D Desktop with the windows coming out of your screen! :-D

though it's still in production and not final as yet (still has some bugs and glitches), if you want to try it out you can find the source at: http://wodor.org/anaglyph/

hmmm. Surround Sound... check, Real 3D-Desktop... check, seems like I only need something to produce scents (i know it exists already ;) ), something to produce taste and touch/feel to have a perfect RealWorld™ setup ;)

BUT...

Does it come with 3D glasses? =D

Real geeks build those themselves ;)

Build your own 3D Glasses

that way you could even make them look cool :P

these look quite hot:

Or for real freaks:

though i still wonder where you get the eyes for the side of your head... maybe you could try testing meds for pharma companies

Re: Anaglyph Desktop

Neat. If I were a real geek I'd so know how to build these and effectively use Linux!

But I'm not so I'll just smile and nod and pretend like I am.

I now got those neat horn-rimmer 3d glasses, they look similar to those:

but well, the Anaglyph-plugin really isn't completed as of yet, for example, the mouse cursor isn't 3D
so when I set the plugin to the highest depth, which means making it look as cool as possible, you either se the cursor sharp, with double-images of the rest, or the rest sharp, and 2 cursors, which makes it REEEAAALLLY difficult to hit buttons.

But, what the heck, the glasses make a nice gimmick for techno-parties ^^ My one goa-/minimal-listening friend was quite envious ;)

also, white/bright background images tend to make it look better, just in case you plan on using it.

can't wait for this to hit 1.0

Re: Anaglyph Desktop

Lol yeah ^^ At least that way, no one would think I'm one of those bald neo-nazis. Never seen one with good dress sense ;)

If you send me glasses like that, I promise to take a picture like that JUST for you ;)

But i think it sure would be exhausting to keep up the bad boy face all the time :P

Though I have been thinking about getting a tattoo lately, would even get it 50% off. But still lack the money :(

P.s. Hey ginsterbusch, haven't read from you in a long time, how's it going?

Someone should implement a 3D desktop that uses 'head tracking' techniques:

The effect is quite convincing. Imagine being able to peek behind one window to see another by tilting your head.

The same guy has some other awesome wii mote tricks on youtube.

Re: Anaglyph Desktop

Sure looks cool.

Well, even though theres no head-tracking, there's some other cool stuff to do with laptops.

Many laptops nowaday have some motion sensors that know what angle the laptop is at (like if you twist it to the side or front/back) to sensor jolting (to shut down the hard drive to prevent damage).

so yeah, here goes ;) I imagine you could do a lot of other cool stuff with this. For instance, instead of wearing those glasses, you could "look around" by twisting your laptop (though it wouldn't work to calculate the distance).

I guess there's a whole lot of new groovy technologies on the verge and the next 10 years will bring a huge development.

For instance there's a sort of "Putting the head tracking thing to the next level" technology just waiting for it's commercial application.

There has been a monitor that produces 3d images for a certain viewing- position for quite some time.

Ok, lets take the common 3d holographic image thingy you have on your visa card. that's made for a specific viewing angle to appear 3d.

( ok what I'm talking about next has nothing to do with those things because they're holographic and I'm talking about autostereoscopy, holographic means it reproduces the lightfield of the scene that was taken, whereas autostereoscopy just means it sends two images at the same time without need for glasses. it's just to illustrate the progression)

Then there came the single-viewer display with a similar technique, only that it's not confined to a fixed angle, instead it works for every viewing angle, but only one at a time. You can combine that with advance head tracking (you know, this wii-mote stuff is just childs-play, you can have a camera mounted with face-recognition that determines when there is a head in the vision-field and where it is) . Usually done with display that can send light in different directions.
One technology is, you send the images with phase-aligned light and the display has like, tiny mirrors that shift the different phases to different directions and are moveable, and there's many other technologies.

This was followed up by multi-user autostereoscopic screens. si it would recognize multiple persons and send a multitude of image so every head gets the right one.

and just to show you that this isn't some utopia like "well yeah, when I'm in my retirement home there'll be 3d screens",
check this out: Philipps 42" 3DWOW TV for 9 viewers... If only i had 9000 to spare...
And 3DTV is planned.

And this ist just a little glance at all the new technologies on the verge right now.
Like, flexible displays that could be incorporated into clothes and so on.

It sure is an amazing time to live in ;) but I guess everyone thinks this in their era

I know this was written last october, but have you seen the videos on youtube about using the wii remote to get 3-d interactive immages on the screen?

I love 3-d by the way. This is pretty just as a double immage of blue and red overlayed.
I like the magic eye books too.
