With the summer travel season rapidly approaching for those in the Northern hemisphere I wanted to point out a free and great place to visit if your travel plans bring you to San Francisco California. There are a wide variety of exhibits in the gallery as well as an amazing view out the windows looking towards the San Francisco Ferry Terminal Building and San Francisco Bay Bridge.
The Autodesk Gallery is open to the public every Wednesday from 12-5 p.m, with a guided tour from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
While there you can create a 3D textured model of your own head. With the very latest 123D Catch custom Photo Booth there are 24 DSLR cameras arranged in a booth with several large LED light units. You enter you email address then proceed to sit in the booth and align your head using the interactive feedback provided by a Kinect and then when your head ins in the right spot all the cameras fire at once. In a few minutes you are emailed links to download the model of your head. You can also just have someone take a series of digital photos of your head and submit them to 123D Catch to get your own head model without this fancy photo booth.Check out the Autodesk Gallery at One Market website for the very latest on exhibits and information: http://www.autodesk.com/thegallery
