Adelson Makes Advances In 3-D Imaging

CSAIL Professor Edward Adelson has premiered a new way to create 3-D images with a simple, portable imaging system. The system, called GelSight, can currently register physical features less than a micrometer in depth and about two micrometers across, and produce 3-D models of an object that can be manipulated on a computer screen.

GelSight could prove useful in everything from medicine to forensics and biometrics.
