3D Wire Mesh Generator – The High End 3D Font Rasterization System

Nowadays, there are many things have been converted into 3D system. Even though the 3D technology is quite common, but not every person has the chance to get in touch with it! Honestly, you’re very lucky today, as we’re about to develop an ultimate 3D Wire Mesh Generator. For your information, the main purpose of the project is to build a hardware transformation unit and a 3D font rasterization system on the Cyclone II FPGA. Isn’t the 3D font rasterization system sounds strange for you? Well, it’s actually the process of converting text from a vector description, such as from the TrueType fonts to a raster/bitmap description. Normally, it always involved the anti-aliasing on screen text, as it makes it smoother and easier to be read by the reader. Sometimes, it may involve hinting, which is the use of information precomputed for a particular font size! Amongst the rasterization forms, the simple line drawing with no anti aliasing is regarded as the simplest and fastest method of all. In the meantime, the 3D Wire Mesh Generator is being used to… Continue reading

The Interactive Real-time 3D Stereogram

Life is supposed to be full with many interesting stuffs. That’s why there are many electronic components have been invented day after day. Frankly, you won’t get bored in the electronics world, as there are a bunch of projects waiting for us to discover it (WoW, it sounds like the Discovery Channel, isn’t it? Lol). Today, you’re very lucky, as we’re trying to create the interactive real-time 3D stereogram. Talking about stereogram, did anyone here know what is it about? A stereogram is an optical illusion of depth created from flat, two-dimensional images. In the very beginning, stereogram is referred to a pair of stereo images, where could be viewed using stereoscope. Charles Wheatstone is the people who discovered stereogram in 1838. He found an explanation of binocular vision, which led him to construct a stereoscope based on a combination of prisms and mirrors. This is to allow a person to see 3D images from two 2D pictures! This interactive real-time stereogram is different from others, as it has a platform that can generate a 3D stereo image from a… Continue reading
