Role up! Here are some great pics in 3D........go get your glasses!

Soar over canyons, mountains, and craters on the moon in amazing high-resolution 3D with these new images from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).

The spacecraft, currently in its extended science mission, has taken hundreds of stereo pairs of images to produce digital elevation models. Unfortunately, such maps require a lot of painstaking computer processing to make.

Generating these simpler 3D maps, on the other hand, “doesn’t require a lot of man-hours and computational time,” said Sarah Mattson from the University of Arizona, a member of the LRO team responsible for making the elevation models. Plus, the 3D images are fun. “I’m really excited to see more and more of them,” she added.

Humans owe their depth perception to the fact that their eyes are slightly offset from one another. Your right eye sees the world from one angle while your left another and your brain combines the two to create a three-dimensional view.

Here are a few images taken by NASA, However.......I gotta say it, no detailed 3D images of the landing sites? Yes, I know they have been dome before but never in 3D..............Why?

It pays having a glasses-free 3D phone. Save any image, view it in 3D.

Very cool, is that an iphone app?

No. The phone itself is 3D enabled. You can record videos, take photos, watch videos, view images, and play games all in 3D. LG Thrill 4G/LG Optimus 3D. The power of Android.

3D? Computer graphics? Hmmm....


The old Lunar Orbiter Images are more sharp!


Images manipulation underway.

You admit your ignorance entirely here then? You don't anything about how the 3d image is created, about the resolution of the photos, but you just want to try and arrogantly mock?

Grow up.
