Rendering Synthetic Objects into Legacy Photographs

Abstract: We propose a method to realistically insert synthetic objects into existing photographs without requiring access to the scene or any additional scene measurements. With a single image and a small amount of annotation, our method creates a physical model of the scene that is suitable for realistically rendering synthetic objects with diffuse, specular, and even glowing materials while accounting for lighting interactions between the objects and the scene.

PaperPhone Flexible Film Smartphone Tablet Computer

PaperPhone is the world's first nextgen, thin film smartphone and interactive paper computer. It is based on a 3.7" flexible electrophoretic (E Ink) display that does not consume electricity when it is not refreshed. Thinfilm sensors allow the phone to respond to bending of the screen to navigate pages in ebooks, play or pause mp3s, make phone calls, or navigate apps. A flexible wacom tablet allows users to draw on the screen with a pen as if it were a sheet of paper.

Shadowrun Promo Video 1990 – A Night’s Work

FASA's 1990 promo video for their Shadowrun RPG. Thrill to the production values! Soak up the 80's ambiance!

This is not my rip, but I do own a copy of the video in question. Since FASA is - sadly - no more, and since this was rarely seen outside GenCon 1990 and the game's press kit, I thought I'd do my part in archiving a bit of gaming history before the tapes die of bitrot.

This is better than The Matrix!
