Latest fun thing in the office: a Stereolabs ZED depth-sensing stereo camera


Just in is this Stereolabs ZED depth-sensing stereo camera. I have been looking for an affordable, good quality stereo camera for ages and this seems to fit the bill. Plus, since it is able to generate a point cloud depth map simultaneously with video frames, it’s possible to compose mixed reality scenes in Unity using a plugin available here.

One of the fun things to try is the ZEDfu program.

This is designed for mapping 3D spaces and turns the ZED into a scanner. The screen capture shows an intermediate view while it is collecting data. You can see the original image, a depth map and the surface map. Thought it was a fun image.

Definitely looking forward to working with this device and using it in some MR projects.
