Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Facebook has just introduced a new feature that will let you relive your photos and videos by revisiting those locations in VR. The giant has shown an amazing project that can create 3D spaces from your 2D photos and videos.
First, take a look at a 1-minute demo shared by Rachel Franklin, Facebook’s head of social VR, at the annual F8 conference this week:
Facebook’s new feature is based on photogrammetry and AI, so it will use your photos and videos of the same location and uploaded to Facebook for “point cloud reconstruction” to generate a 3D space that you can explore your memories in.
As of this moment, the recreated world look kind of strange — there’s dream-like look to them, but imagine the possibilities here. The feature needs some adjustments and time, but we’re sure Facebook can build something truly amazing. Is this the future for photo viewing experiences? Time will tell.
Make sure to share your thought on the announced project in the comments below.
