Avatar

I saw Avatar in IMAX 3-D last Friday. It is simply an amazing cinematic experience and great to see 3-D now hitting the big screen, TV screens and of course the web. Here's a cool video about some of the technology behind the scenes in case you missed it. Hats off to Mr. Cameron and his crew.

I, too, have seen Avatar in IMAX 3D. It is quite a treat to watch. What interests me in the posted video is the use of the simul-cam. James Cameron has created a real-time augmented reality experience, blending the real and the surreal to view his "complete" world. I believe it is only a matter of time before simul-cam technology is available for public consumption. Once that day has come, I can imagine artists and educators like myself using this technology to meld Virtual World projects with real world experiences, bringing us one step closer to an interfaceless interface.
