Movies

I have been busy creating animations for my invited talks, workshops, and conference presentations. I think that an animated and simplified introduction to a specific subject is always entertaining, but also serves the important purpose of explaining to non-experts what my work is about, why to study it, and how the methods work. It's a shame to use such animations only once, so I decided to make them available here for everyone.

During a presentation, I would usually stop any given animation rather frequently, and explain what is shown. On this website, I am not here to tell you about the animations, so I decided to split them into several short movies, and group them together into playlists.

Thus, you can consider each item in this section as one animation, and take your time to think between two movies of a given playlist. Feel free to replay each sequence if you didn't understand it right away. I have also included a few comments in the movie, so I hope they are understandable without me standing there and explaining them.

Images

Besides movies, I have also been busy creating various still 3D images, either for publications, talks, posters, or simply to create beautiful things. Some of these pictures made it into books, others into art competitions, but most of them were custom made for my conference posters, and were therefore only shown once.

I think that's a pity, so I decided to show them here on my site. You can choose between "flat 3D" and "anaglyph 3D". The "flat 3D" you can enjoy as is, the "anaglyph 3D" pictures should be viewed with anaglyph red-cyan 3D glasses, just as some of my movies above.

Virtual Reality

There's some new technology and developments which make virtual reality inside websites an actual reality. That's exciting. It is also a nice coincidence that I've been involved in creating some virtual reality environments for public engagement into research.

This section then shows some of that work, adapted to the web. If you happen to have an actual virtual reality headset, the below pages should work with that. If you don't have a headset, you can interact with it on your desktop computer through your mouse, or load this page with your mobile phone. In both cases, you will be able to navigate inside the models below with either our mouse and/or keyboard, or simple move your phone around to get a 360 degree view. In case you happen to have a phone and some low-tech goggles, as for instance Google Cardboard, you can click on the little goggle icon, and the view will become split between the left and the right eyes for a more immersive experience.

3D to touch

I have prepared some of my 3D models in a way that you can see it in 3D for yourself, and navigate around it to get a better view and have some fun with it. This section needs JavaScript and WebGL, which are not guaranteed to always work.
