Last week I received an e-mail from Samsung regarding the HoloLab scans that I did at the 2018 Samsung Developer’s Conference. Shortly after the conference, I wrote about the rig that was used to do the scan.
When the photographs were taken for the scan, three poses were requested. The first pose was standing with your arms crossed. The second pose was standing with both of your arms out to the side. The third pose was allowed to be a freestyle that could be whatever you wanted (just for the fun of it).
Of these three poses, I was most interested in the second pose, because arms out to the side is the most appropriate pose to use when importing a model into software for animating. Sadly, what arrived in my e-mail was only one of the three poses, the first one.
I’m still happy to have received the one pose that I did. The model definitely resembles me. This is speculation on my part, but I imagine that the processing of the 52 images that make up a single scan is time consuming. Considering the large number of participants at the conference who had the scans done, receiving all three model poses may be wishful thinking.
