Researchers of Carnegie Mellon University has managed to teach a computer to recognize and transform 2D images into 3D.

Watch a demo here. (http://youtube.com/watch?v=VuoljANz4EA)

!!! what the heck? I woiuld love to see in depth how that works. I did notice that all those pictures had some pretty deep perspective, I wonder how it works on a shot of a room or something a bit more squashed. Cool stuff though.

Image Based Modeling has been around for years, not sure why this is all that newsworthy?

Well, the fact that the computer does automatically seems interesting enough

Off course it's cool for technology's sake, but it isn't any better than what camera projection can do. I think it will depend on its speed for how usefull it will proove to be.

Me have seen this thing many moons ago :) quite old already. It's not as impressive as that tool some people are working on to compose 3d cities from tons of photos taken by people.
