Very good post, with epic level of detail.
This is correct, but ascii doesn't register such real-world elements as wood or soft finish aluminum, or the occasional juicy bits of color at the 5C table.I love the way people with PC-deadened senses use the word "corporate" to describe Apple's character because it's successful and ubiquitous. As if they didn't get that way by putting users first and fighting bad corporate taste their entire history.
If only ascii WOULD smoke some weed. He might find a way to lighten up. Too many these days go through a wasted youth without smoking pot, and they end up as trollish curmudgeons. brlawyer is another that could use some right-brain medicine.
It's a good point that 2-lens and two-sensor 3-D is more possible with phone-sized components. Even GoPros are too large for medium-distance 3-D, and the dual camera kits often mount one camera upside down to bring the lenses closer together. Distance to the subject determines the distance you want between the lenses. An adjustable interaxial is the reason many 3-D rigs using two cameras are preferred for pro work.Finally, synthesized 3-D is not generally as good as that...
His left eye is way off track. He would not be able to achieve stereopsis.
Does anyone know where in the podcast the camera discussion happens? I played the whole thing the other day, but as usual, I fell asleep for some of it. It's long.
Well, didn't he say he wanted to revolutionize photography?
As long as it's binocular and stereo, they should avoid the worst aspect of Google Glass, which is a crime against nature. Glass violates bilateral symmetry, which is one of the cardinal features of our architecture, the others being ventral/dorsal and head/tail.
LOL (which I have never used until now, so I really mean it.)
Exactly. My point is that fixating on a trillion dollars as some kind of goal or marker point is deeply irrational. It only has meaning, like all even numbers ending in zero, because we have ten fingers. That's how primitive this stuff is.We can't do anything about it, but I'm saying that it's bad juju to participate in gloating about it. It's shameful, really, how grubby this number worship is. There are many warnings in literature about it. It falls under the "hubris"...
