Perspective projection

Perspective projection is a method of 3D projection ? flattening a 3D image onto a 2D display screen ? which strives to recreate the vanishing points and perspective shift that objects in the physical world undergo, deforming and shrinking, parallel lines pulling together to denote distance. In the 3D render, prior to 3D projection, this is not occurring, and the objects sit in 3D space, in their correct shapes, as objects normally do in the physical world. The tendency towards a vanishing point, is a perspective trick, as part of perspective projection, to make up for the lack of actual 3D objects.

Thus, if a 2D display medium such as a monitor was not required, the rendering process would actually be significantly faster, removing this computationally expensive step.

Book Quotes: Refusing to See - AI Rights
Idoru is, essentially, one long piece on the struggle to understand the quest for robot rights ? or in this case, the rights of an AI itself, from an outsider?s perspective; from the perspective of one who refuses to accept the AI as other than a tool, despite all evidence to the contrary.



The virtual laser keyboard first appeared in mid 2005, and is a product of machine vision and projection technology. The emitter itself is about the size of a small mobile phone, and so can be discretely attached to any handheld device.
