The future is here… and it’s terrifying.
PhD students at the University of Nottingham recently launched an app they created that transforms 2D photos into 3D designs.
The app takes a color image and passes it through something called a Convolutional Neural Network. This results in a 3D volume, a cubed image made up of smaller cubes called voxels (the 3D version of pixels).
The creators shared the app on Reddit last week, and the internet quickly had fun with its newest meme-generating toy!
In fact, Tumblr users took the liberty of creating intentionally disturbing images using the reconstruction software. But Aaron Jackson, one of the creators of the app, admitted he enjoys seeing these creepy creations born from his technology.
