She’s not exactly right — there have been large immersive theaters since the early 1990s — but the Allosphere is both more immersive and less subjective, according to its proponents, as you will soon see.…

flexible imaging arrays

A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has developed and built a flexible pixel imaging array. Instead of a planar, rigid array, like the CMOS and CCD detectors that are now common in digital cameras, their sensor can be curved. Their goal is to build a camera that is similar to the human eye, where as you'll recall, the imaging is done on the retina on the curved hemispherical inside of… Continue

Microsoft's <i>Sphere</i>

Microsoft has a follow-up to their Surface table, and CNET has a couple of articles about the Sphere. I'm not sure how useful this will be. We already have considerable experience with Science on a Sphere. Even with four projectors and a 2 meter diameter sphere, there are clear limitations to how much detail you can see on a SoS.

3D volumetric display patent

Here's a patent for a new 3D volumetric display. What's cool about it is that it is not the volumetric display (which is not radically novel), but the haptic user interface allowing real-time hands-on manipulation of the virtual data.… Continue

Hi thereI am currently researching how to produce a fulldome astronomy film for the Planetarium in Cape Town, South Africa.I'm trying to figure out which camera setup would produce the best results. We want to film in and around the telescopes in Sutherland. We want the audience to feel like they're sitting outside in between the telescopes.With the current tech available, would it be easiest to use a high-end 360 camera and convert the footage to fulldome in After Effects?I was looking into…See More
