LiveScene Kinect Toolkit

LiveScene Kinect Toolkit

Client: Internal Description : LiveScene is an Open Source (LGPL) toolkit to communicate with realtime 3D scanners such as Microsoft’s Kinect and process the data to make it available in a device agnostic way. Additional capabilities involved background detection and discrimination, as well as body mass and hand extremity detection and tracking. Currently only the

Shader-based LIDAR Simulation

Client: Ball Aerospace Description : AlphaPixel, with Skew Matrix Software contributed training and consulting in support of Ball’s development of a realtime system allowing joystick-driven ‘flight’ of an airborne LIDAR mapping sensor over large-area landscapes built from USGS survey data. Subsequently AlphaPixel provided similar support in the development of shader-based implementation of material surface properties,

LatticeFX Volume Renderer

Client: Ames Laboratory Description : AlphaPixel developed a GPU-based orthogonal slice-plane shader in GLSL to render a 3D volume texture (for example, medical MRI data) efficiently from a 3D texture with minimal CPU support. Uniforms are used to specify the model transforms, draw instancing generates a view-dependent dynamic number of slice planes at a specified
