Amazing: 3D Models Generated from 2D Photos

The mind boggles when you try to imagine combining deep neural network embedded vision systems with this 3D model extraction technology. My chum Jay Dowling just pointed me at this jaw-dropping video that demonstrates an interactive technique for extracting 3D models from 2D photographs. OK, I have to say that this one completely blew me away, and this video was created three years ago in 2013, so I cannot imagine how far this technology has progressed since that time. As far as I’m concerned this is awesomely mindbogglingly clever. In the case of simple objects, like a glass bottle, for example, the user employs the mouse to sweep three strokes that inform the system as to the X, Y, and Z axis associated with an object.
