DAVID Laserscanner

What is DAVID?

DAVID is a freeware software for laser range scanning. All you need is a PC, a camera (e.g. a webcam), a background corner, and a laser which projects a line onto the object you want to scan. So everyone can use it to scan objects without high costs; this is the big advantage over commercial solutions which are rather expensive.

DAVID has been developed by the computer scientists Dr. Simon Winkelbach and Sven Molkenstruck from the Institute for Robotics and Process Control, Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. The concept has been published as a paper at the German Association for Pattern Recognition (DAGM, Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Mustererkennung) and can be downloaded here.

The object you want to scan has to be put into the corner of a room or in front of two planes with an exact angle of 90°. The camera of course has to be pointed towards the object. The special thing about our solution is that you freely hold the laser in your hand, "brushing" the laser line over the object. Meanwhile the computer automatically calculates 3D coordinates of the scanned object surface. See the screenshots to get an impression of the software.

Confrontation, Finished

I finally finished "Confrontation", a story from my latest Exalted character, a Twilight Caste Solar Exalt named Naya. I think it's a nice one. My longest single work, too. Go check it out, if you're into over-the-top combat and Exalted in general, I guess. ^_^

Confrontation, Part 1

Running through these undead is a simple affair, even without the powers i've activated. I swerve around, over, and amongst them, with the poor blokes only realizing my passing after the fact. I keep an eye on the real threat, a huge golem of a man whose's full plate armor towers over the battlefield. He holds a bow in his hand, and from what i can see, his arrows cut a wide swath of destruction, taking whole buildings down with a single one. I'm running my fastest to help my friends, swerving amongst these zombies so i can hide from that dark knight.

But then i see him slowly shift his aim a bit ahead of me, and i know i've been spotted. What his huge soulsteel weapon fires looks like a shard of darkness itself, a bolt of the purest obsidian that radiates a palpable entropy, seeking only to destroy. I watch it's approach, calculating if my current defenses are enough to protect me against this projectile. But when it's close enough for me to feel how my anima clashes against it's emanations, i know i can't risk it.

It only takes a momentary concentration to focus on my nascent energy, and to diffuse it throughout my being. As the bolt hits, in an eternal instant, my body's shadow separates into seven distinct images, and as they fade, so does my form. The projectile goes on through, vaporizing at least four ghouls and the three buildings behind, a raze at least 15 meters wide. My body reforms five meters away, still mid-stride, and completely in awe at the damage caused.

Nonlethal Gun Makes You Wish You Were Shot with BFG - Gizmodo

"The ADS shoots a beam of high intensity millimeter waves, which in
plain English means if you get in the beam's way, it'll feel like
you're being dipped in lava. In fact, the pain is so intense, that the
longest any human test subject could withstand the beam was 5 seconds,
and a very small number of them walked away with redness and blisters
from the beam's intense heat."

Wii JPN Launch: Last Minute Info

Tomorrow, 400,000 Wiis hit The Land of the Rising Sun. Gizmodo Japan reports that compared to the PS3, there have been more Wii pre-orders. And thus, more people unable to get pre-orders. So it's a numbers game again, really.

For our Japan-based readers, here's the retailer run-down:

Bic Camera: Sales start first come, first served tomorrow morning at 7:00am. As previously mentioned, those with Suica cards can pre-reserve. Otherwise, head to the Ikebukuro headquarters (ahem, Jean Snow!) or Yurakucho.

Yodobashi Camera: Sales also first come, first served with stores opening at 7:00am at the Shinjuku, Akihabara and Umeda branches. I'll be at the Umeda branch. Wearing a Paul Smith scarf (Yeah, I know. My excuse: It was a present.)

Shibuya TSUTAYA: Pre-reserves only. Orders filled in two hours.

Sofmap (Den-Den Town): Likewise, pre-reserves. They apparently went quick.

Sakuraya: Tickets will be passed out from 7:30 am tomorrow morning with sales starting at 8:00 am.

Good luck all! Brian Ashcraft
