At 2pm today I went down to the fishbowl with some of the other interns. There we got to talk to a graduate student named David Nilosek and he showed us some of the work he has done regarding 3d imaging. Mr. Nilosek had made a program that uses a camera and a projector to measure the spacing of lines projected onto a surface, in order to see how far away a pixel is from the camera. The product of this is a 3d image usable in programs like Blender. Some of the other interns got to use the device to scan their faces into the computer. It was a very interesting half hour.
