    Grimage: Markerless 3D Interactions




    Grimage glues multi-camera 3D modeling, physical simulation and parallel execution for a new immersive experience. Put your hands or any object into the interaction space. It is instantaneously modeled in 3D and injected into a virtual world populated with solid and soft objects. Push them, catch them and squeeze them.
