Applications of stereo imaging reach far beyond the movie screen and into the fields of science and medicine. This session looks at the uses of stereoscopy to probe the inner space of our bodies and the outer space of our solar system. It also explores fascinating tools that change the way we think of capturing 3D imagery and how 3D is used to improve product design.
