Creating 3D environments 2/2: 3D Scanning and Photogrammetry

After discussing 360 video capture and 3D modelling in a previous blog post, we now introduce two other techniques for capturing 3D environments, 3D scanning and photogrammetry. 3D Scanning 3D Scanning is an approach commonly used in architectural and geospatial surveying. It involves the use of professional equipment which measures the distance of objects using …

Creating 3D environments for virtual experiences 1/2: 360° Video and 3D Modelling

As part of our goal to create a 3D bar for beer tasting experiments – described in our guest blog post by Marit Nijman, researcher in the Sensory Science Centre – we are currently experimenting with a variety of technologies that can be used to capture and recreate realistic 3D environments. In this blog post, …

Creating a virtual bar for a beer tasting experiment

This is a guest blog by Marit Nijman, PhD student in the Sensory Sciences Centre of the School of Biosciences. Do you think you would feel differently about a beer if you have it in a pub as opposed to a plain white room? My PhD research has shown that consumers’ responses to products can …
