3D Human Body Reconstruction

Virtual Reality: 3D Human Body Reconstruction from Fraunhofer HHI digitizes Human Beings

At the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute, the 3D human body reconstruction technology captures real persons with multiple cameras at the same time and creates naturally moving dynamic 3D models. Afterwards, they can be integrated in computer graphics virtual worlds or real scenes. The human 3D models can be manipulated to change their viewing direction, movements and animation.
This technology is being used for the first time in cooperation with UFA GmbH in the course of a joint test production for the immersive film “GATEWAY TO INFINITY” as a volumetric virtual reality experience.
