The authors of "Extracting 3D Objects from Photographs Using 3-Sweep" present an important step toward achieving 3D editing.
In this paper, we present a new hardware-software system, called Software Defined Battery, which allows system designers to integrate batteries of different chemistries.
A time-tested principle in computer systems design is to use an interface to separate an abstraction from its implementation. "Software-Defined Batteries" represents a convergence of these two evolutionary threads.
We introduce an interactive technique to extract and manipulate simple 3D shapes in a single photograph.
