StereoImage

In July of last year I purchased the LG Optimus 3D, a mobile phone which comes with dual cameras to take spectroscopic images. I’ve been very happy with the camera and consequently have quite a collection of 3D images. However, there are no easy ways to display the 3D photos online – this is why I created “StereoImage”.

StereoImage is a way to display stereoscopic images on a HTML5 canvas. It works on jps and pns files which are fundementally two jpegs / pngs joined together side by side. Using StereoImage a user can quickly switch between different ways of displaying the images.

See it here:

Your browser does not support the canvas element.


The different ways to show include:

  • Horizontal, one on top of the other,
  • Vertical, side by side,
  • Show just the left,
  • Show just the right,
  • Flick between both images (at variable rate)
  • Stereoscopic – reduce size with circle eye alignment.
  • Anaglyph – red and green/blue view (for use with glasses)

The code is open source, so feel free to use it. You can find more details on my website here: http://www.akademy.co.uk/software/stereoimage/ . Download or checkout the code via BitBucket here: https://bitbucket.org/akademy/stereoimage

 

The Samsung Running App

The samsung running app (called “Samsung Hope Relay”) is a nice idea. Samsung will donate a pound to charity for every mile you walk, run o4 cycle (and probably anything else under a 20mph…), but it records distance so no point using it in the gym! It is a little buggy though:

But hasnt stopped them giving £200’000 so far. Get it quick before the Olympics and raise a bit of money (and probably loose a few pounds!)
