Refocus That Please - by Bill Moll
This month’s program will be the annual Christmas Party. Julia Moor provides a great spread of food and Larry provides some great 3D. He usually has a few surprises. The scheduled show will be Larry and Mike's Lincoln show, to be presented also at the NSA 2006 Miami Convention.
If you haven't seen it yet, you need to go out to the Regal Mall Of Georgia 20, 3333 Buford Drive, Suite 3000, Buford, GA 30518 to see Chicken Little in 3D at the only RealD theater in Georgia .
It is only on one screen, so check the schedule carefully. All Chicken Little screens will close soon. Uwe Trode saw it with his kids and enjoyed the show more than I did (with no kids). But we both were quite impressed by the quality of the 3D projection. Lenny Lipton, the originator of the RealD system will be the banquet speaker at the Miami Convention. He will also be doing a technical workshop. Lenny wrote "Puff the Magic Dragon" when in high school. The royalties from it enabled him to explore is passion – 3D movies.
The meeting is the 2nd Friday of this month – December 9. We will meet at 7:30 PM at the Congregational Church @ 2676 Clairmont Road (about 1 1/2 blocks south of I-85) This is the Church up the winding road, through the woods. If you have any questions, call Bill @ 706-859-7726.
November meeting report:
There were 15 people at the November meeting. Mike Griffith discussed his results of his research in "Suppressed Photos of Lincoln's Assassination". If CSI ever decides to do historical shows, Mike is a shoo-in for a part. He gave an interesting expose' of the crime, investigation and trial.
Barney Johnson gave a fascinating display of stereograms. They were on cups, ranging from dice and race cars to undulating swimsuit models. There were also some interesting one-camera stereograms illustrating the interplay of 2D depth cues, 3D vision and perspective/focal length. Barney referenced the fact that about 5% of the population never sees in 3D (they only use 2D clues for depth perception). He didn't mention that about half of the 3D vision people do cross-eyed viewing and the others don't. So when he showed his stereogram videos, about half of us had a real 3D experience and the others didn't. Unfortunately, I can't yet do the cross-eyed thing, but it sure looked like fun!
