Researchers use a 480-Camera Dome to More Accurately Capture 3D Motion [video]
Petapixel.com reports that Using a dome with 480 cameras researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are developing a new way to create motion capture without those little reflective balls.
Traditional 3D motion capture technologies, amazing though they are, are limited. They only give you a small number of data points to work with, and while they seem to capture a great deal of detail, their abilities are far outpaced by the intricate movements of the human body.
Fortunately, there’s a new technology in development that might just be able to solve this problem by throwing a crap-load of cameras at it.
