View Full Version : Researchers develop low cost 3D camera

05 May 2003, 03:07 PM
"University of Kentucky researchers have found a relatively low-cost method to measure depth using a single camera. Their depth camera prototype shines a light pattern onto a object and gains depth information from the way the object distorts the pattern.

The prototype is made from off-the-shelf parts worth $4,000; a practical, mass-produced system could cost less than $1000, according to the researchers."
