VR porn and technology

Porn has historical driven many new technologies into the mainstream and VR is no different. The following is a behind the scenes video about how they are approaching the scanning process of models into a virtual environment. Warning, this is NSFW (not suitable for work) viewing. What’s interesting is that fundamentally they are using photogrammatry to digitize the model. They are using a huge array of digital SLR cameras from fixed positions to take a snapshot of the model from many different angles simulataneously. From there, they can use the multiple views from the cameras to reconstruct a 3D representation of the person and have it overlaid with the photographic images resulting in a highly detailed and photorealistic rendering. From here, they can then animate the model using traditional techniques. Although they are focusing this on porn, the same techniques can be applied to digitizing anyone or anything using a similar technique. This is the beginning of how we start capturing the world and begin to moving it into 3D space. Link
