RIBCAGE AIR: 3D DATA & FLIGHTPATH RECONSTRUCTION

With this fun project we used XYZ RGB’s Scannerkiller technology to extract and reconstruct an accurate flight-path and virtual camera from some of our drone footage. We used a Ribcage Modified Hero4 Black mounted on a 3DR Solo. Using only the video frames we are able to extract 3D models and camera positions. A virtual camera can then be created… Read More

SHOOTING THE MOON

GoPro probably didn’t have this in mind when they designed the Hero3+ ! We finally had a chance to test out the Ribcage on our Telescope. These images and the video below were taken by attaching a c-mount to 1.25″ nosepiece adapter to our Celestron C6 750mm Newtonian Reflector telescope. No lens was used on the Ribcage. It’s great to… Read More

RIBCAGE: NIGHT VISION

Some sample footage shot at night with the IR-Cut filter removed from our Ribcage Modified Hero3+ Black. Shot with an IR corrected 4.5-13mm CS-Mount. The default look has a purple hue, but tinting or desaturating the footage will easily give it the traditional night vision look as demonstrated in the video. Light source was a small IR LED panel powered… Read More

RIBCAGE: INSECTS UP CLOSE

We recently had a fun evening exploring the insect exhibit at the Canadian Museum of Nature and had a chance to test out some new high-res glass from Computar. All of this footage was shot on a Ribcage modified Hero3+ Black with our new Computar 2/3″ 16mm C-Mount and 1/2″ 25-135mm C-Mount. A big thanks to the Canadian Museum of… Read More

FUN WITH THE H3B CASE

Hero3 Case Modification Prototype This isn’t waterproof of course but there are many benefits to using the camera while protected inside the case. The mod replaces the original glass, and when used with the Ribcage Modified Camera you can attach CS and C-Mount lenses directly to the new case mod. M12 lenses can be used with an M12 to CS… Read More
