interesting video on YouTube from
Binary Millenium showing how to make a 3D model out of real objects using Microsoft's
Photosynth. It's an interesting idea that, while
unofficial, may be a big time saver and a lot of fun for many of you. This will work best if you use a…
While at PDC09, I met up with Tor Langlo and Robby Ingebretsen who had just built a really cool closet configuration application using WPF and 3D.
Think about going to a high-end home store, where the consultant sits down with you and helps configure a walk-in or other type of closet for your…

Watch out James Cameron, the
PDC team has done their first ever show in 3D, and that’s because we’ve got the width, the depth, and the length. And how do we have those? Well, check out the dozens of
just announced (with tons more content still to come), that include SQL, WCF,…
I had to stop by and try on the 3D glasses at the WWT booth during this years Faculty Research Summit. If you think the WWT is cool- just wait till you see it in 3D.WorldWide Telescope (WWT) enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope, bringing together imagery from the best ground and…
Jaime Rodriguez has written a great tutorial on PlaneProjection in Silverlight 3. Jaime explains how to relate common 3D concepts
to PlaneProjection in Silverlight. You can see the transforms in action by playing around with parameters on
his Sandbox page. Or you can download the
Nikola, previously on
showing his Shock game, is back with a new interesting project,
a Motion Capture Viewer written in Silverlight. Along with entertaining us with dancing stick figures, Nikola is also
sharing the code, what he's learned and
a primer on Motion Capture. Real 3D in action!
Nick Petterssen from Electric Rain
demonstrates how to use ZAM 3D with Blend to create true 3D content for WPF. Once the 3D object is then added to the scene he shows how to animate it using the familiar Storyboard objects used for animating 2D objects.
