3Dcamp – May 29th 2010 at Institute of Technology, Tallaght

3Dcamp is a Barcamp-like event which has been held for the last two years in the University of Limerick. This year we're delighted to announce that we're going 'on tour' to the Institute of Technology, Tallaght.

As in previous years 3Dcamp offers an opportunity to learn more about, and network with people interested in, the following topics –

  • 3D modelling (Blender, Sketchup)
  • Mapping mashups, GPS
  • Location based Services (LBSs)
  • Haptics and augmented toys (eg. Wiimote hacks),
  • Augmented reality
  • Virtual Worlds (Second Life, the Metaverse)
  • Mirror worlds (Google Earth and Virtual Earth)
  • Interactive art installations
  • Robotics
  •  …and all things 3D.

2009 was of course an amazing year for 3D culminating in the release of Avatar, the record breaking movie which has put stereoscopic 3D firmly back in the spot light. And 2010 kicked of with a Consumer Electronics Show dominated by 3D TV announcements. Not to be outdone, Augmented Reality has been equally basking in the hype – a technology which is all about overlaying the real world with useful information services.

The information technology world is rapidly moving beyond the limitations of the 2D windows desktop. And 3Dcamp is all about the new horizon. We hope to see you there.

    Is it on the 29th of May or the 29th of June
    http://3dcamp.barcamp.ie/about/ says the 29 of June

    Oops, thanks for pointing that out and sorry for any confusion. It should be the 29th of May and I’ve changed it now. Will we see a TOG representation? It would be great if your group could give a talk.

  3. Steve Flinter Says:

    FYI, I’ve created an event in LinkedIn for the camp. Feel free to take ownership of it and update it accordingly.

    There will be definitely a TOG representation at it, plenty of flashing LED’s and other cool projects, I don’t know about a talk yet, maybe something on 3d scaning/printing if we get our mackerbot by then

  5. James Corbett Says:

    Excellent, looking forward to that. Is TOG on twitter?
