Sensing 3D surfaces with Gelsight

at 2:38 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets, Electronic Hacks


GelSight, a new 3D surface sensing material can be used to visualize and measure surfaces. Zedomax member reports that GelSight is a pretty top-notch stuff that can detail at even microscopic levels.

The optical property of the material is making it very complicated to see the surface structure”, said Johnson, co-founder of GelSight, Inc.

For more information, you can read the paper presented at SIGGRAPH 2011 named: “Microgeometry Capture using an Elastomeric Sensor” or you can visit the website of GelSight, Inc .

    Alright, it is using a camera. But why is the gel needed then?

    It’s a single color, so any contrast changes are from depth and not the color of whatever you’re pressing against it.
