Abstract:This paper describes a "logical sensor" whose purpose is to recover the shape and color characteristics of a scene in a form usable for processes such as virtual reality and environmental modeling. The simplest non-technical description of the sensor is that it is an inverse paintbrush, acquiring into a computer database the shape and color of surfaces as one "paints" over them with the "brush"
