Great art on ShareCG

I was checking out some of the new features in Daz ArtZone when I came across a link to another site:

A great user site with profiles, galleries and really talented artist. I was really impressed by the fact that it has a VR section, as well as tutorials in 2D and 3D art along with DazStudio, Bryce, Autocad, Photoshop... and probably tonnes of others.

Makes me wish I had:
  1. More time to spend on this kind of work: I find it relaxes me and I enjoy it.
  2. A better computer, to render more things!

Seriously, check out the site and find me in the ArtZone community. Stop by and say "Hi!"

Would you watch the Hobbit in 3D?

A little blurb about the some-day upcoming Hobbit movie: think it would be good in 3D?

Shame on me, I've never yet seen an IMAX film, let alone one in 3D. :(

Touchable Holograms not far away

Another shout out to Dino for providing a link to a Gizmodo article on breakthroughs in hologram technology.

That of course led me to another item about research dealing with the use of ultrasound to produce tactile feedback. Now combine the two, and someday we could get hologram images that have a light feel of substance to them. Perhaps not rock solid, but a pleasant squidgy feeling nonetheless.
