Kalpa

16-Jan-10 | 11,033 views

  THE STORY Kalpa is the creature of stillness. There is a large amount of them existing but rarely seen. Their bodies are too small to be noticed by human eyes but they have an extremely strong sense of any kind of movement around them. They gather and reproduce only in a still environment. A […]

Automating The Brush Stroke

20-Nov-09 | 8,358 views

Here’s a rough diagram of the drawing machine architecture that I have in mind. I’m building the components from bottom to top. I moved on from the brush stroke and started to work on a set of drawing functions that incorporate the stroke. Currently coverage: moveTo, lineTo, rect, circle the moveTo function is necessary since […]

A Passive Drawing Machine

12-Nov-09 | 3,623 views

worked on this simple drawing machine a couple of month ago but never got it posted. The machine draws with dripping ink, which is loaded into the cup and slowed down by the sponge. The machine draws while the movable paper holder is pushed, leaving passive trails on the paper.

Update on my brush stroke

05-Nov-09 | 28,395 views

following up my drawing machine project proposal, I built a brush stroke in the first week to simulate what a brush should behave in my imagination. Basically I built it with the idea of simulating chinese calligraphy (without the splashing ink part) so first it should be used for writing, and it came out pretty […]

Generative 3D Modeling paper: http://www.scribd.com/doc/279861/Generative-3D-Models Wikipedia entry of Generative Modeling Language: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generative_Modelling_Language Usual 3D file formats describe a virtual world in terms of geometric primitives. These may be cubes and spheres in a CSG tree, NURBS patches, a set of implicit functions, a consomm√© of triangles, or just a cloud of points. The term “generative […]

content-aware media retargeting

seam carving for content-aware image resizing Effective resizing of images should not only use geometric constraints, but consider the image content as well. A seam is an optimal 8-connected path of pixels on a single image from top to bottom, or left to right, where optimality is defined by an image energy function. By repeatedly […]

Digitized Memories

08-Oct-09 | 14,432 views

Virtual reality is apparently not just about the vision, it’s always about using all possible help of the technology to trigger a similar (but altered) experience that is already stored in the human brain through all senses, including very subtle emotions. It’s a magic of bringing the memory to the present. It is not too […]
