The 2018 SD&A Demonstration Session
The SD&A Demonstration Session has run every year since 1990. The symposium-wide event is open to demonstrators from all of the Electronic Imaging conferences.
Demonstrations at the 2018 event relevant to SD&A topics included:
- "Historical Stereoscopic Gaming", a hands-on display of stereoscopic electronic games and related ephemera (Ilicia Benoit and Eric Kurland - see Figure 4)
- Use of a VR headset to assess weaknesses in human stereoscopic vision and also provide treatment exercises (Benjamin Backus, Vivid Vision)
- UnityMol - a software to explore molecular structures with the Oculus Rift (Marc Baaden, Alexandre Maes, Xavier Martines, Stuttgart University)
- CADwalk - life-size MR-AR-VR design experience video presentation (Gerhard Kimenkowski)
- Exploration of molecular data with the Hololens (Michael Krone, see Figure 5)
- Cardboard VR Exploration of Chlamydomonas r. 3D 360° as well as mobile sensor data visualization (Björn Sommer)
- Mesoscopic rigid modeling of the extracellular matrix (Hua Wong, Reims University)
- Molecular Dynamic Visualization (MDV) - stereoscopic visualization of molecular structures with Unity (Andrew Woods)
- The VR experience "Beacon Virtua" was displayed in a Google Cardboard viewer and on a laptop display as an example of multi-platform VR capability (Andrew Woods)
- Polar Screens presented an autostereoscopic display with head tracking that uses a directional backlight to support full-HD resolution to each eye. (Ted Judge and Jean-Etienne Gaudreau)
The demo session is always accompanied by a number of interesting discussions.
Moreover, this photo contains three Google VR cardboards / HMDs – find them all!
