We are looking for students in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Photography, Graphic Design, or Digital Media.

Do you love to code? Do you create your own digital art? Are you a stickler for detail? Do you like to solve challenging and new problems? Do you want to combine your creative side with your technical side? Do you live in Photoshop? Are you familiar with OpenGL, Gimp, Occulus Rift? Do you want to be?

If this describes you send us a resume, e-mail, greeting card, get well card, text message or cuneiform tablet!

Students can join this project and work on exciting things:
. Go on photo-shoots and learn how to capture immersive content.
Learn how to create immersive photorealistic content, worlds, and art.
Build new tools for immersive digital editing.
Learn the production process for digital immersive content
Attend conferences and workshops and show off your work.
We are developing new technology and tools for this project:
HoloViewer A viewer for large format displays as well as Occulus Rift and Samsung Gear VR.
Editor Application for combining traditional computer graphics scenes with high-resolution photoreal stereo captures.
Pipeline As part of our work we are establishing a computer graphics pipeline that integrates 3D immersion tools at every step of production.
Immersion Camera Stepping into pictures is great but what you want to be able to do is walk in them. We are testing and developing a variety of 360' stereo capture devices to allow for real-time navigation in photorealistic environments.

In the HoloShots project we are building technology to let you step into photographs. By capturing stereo-panoramas at resolutions above 100 Megapixels virtual reality becomes reality.

In this project we use specially assembled camera rigs on robotic mounts to capture 360' immersive stereo at very high resolution (>100Mpixel) for each eye.

With these high-resolution panoramas users can step directly into the picture.
