The Project Holodeck team at the University of Southern California (USC) says it wants to create a full body simulator which will allow players to literally walk around a large digital space.
Wild Skies, the VR game we are currently developing for the Holodeck platform, is a co-operative Virtual Reality Video Game. Two players must work together to pilot a massive airship through a exotic world of floating islands.
Artist Tom Deininger has created vivid portraits using discarded junk.

Fourandsix have developed a metric that quantifies the perceptual impact of geometric and photometric modifications by modeling and then estimating common photo retouching techniques.
Geometric changes are modeled with a dense locally linear, but globally smooth, motion field. Photometric changes are modeled with a locally-linear filter and a generic measure of local image similarity. These model parameters are automatically estimated from the original and retouched photos.
