i3D - Head coupled perspective

i3D is an iPhone and iPad app that demonstrates how a face tracking system can be used to create animated perspective views that adjust as you view the screen from different angles, creating a realistic illusion of 3D depth.

The system creates a monocular view, using the front facing camera of the phone or tablet for facetracking. It does not rely on the accelerometer or gyroscope. There is potential for the system to be developed in conjunction with stereoscopic technology to create more sophisticated interactive perspective images.

i3D has been developed by Jeremie Francone and Laurence Nigay at the Engineering Human-Computer Interaction (EHCI) Research Group of the Grenoble Infomatics Laboratory (LIG), University Joseph Fourier in Switzerland.

The app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store here.

Videos and further information about the project can be found on the EHCI website.
