University of Washington researchers in collaboration with Google and Facebook want to bring you the next World Cup on your tabletop. Using AI and 3D reconstruction, the new technology turns a regular game TV transmission into a 3D game. The current version doesn’t work in real-time yet, but we have four more years to make […]

Feeling creative? NASA has a video/poster competition. The video (no longer than 5 min) should depict your vision of journey from idea to landing on Mars and it can be either animation, special effects, or “breathtaking cinematography”. The poster is for either recruiting astronauts, promoting space tourism, or depicting the next generation of systems that […]

Conventional wisdom says that you have to have the right tools for the job, because if you don’t, your work will not have the “right” quality. I love learning about the creative process of various creative people – from scientists, to filmmakers, to writers, to music creators. In every single interview about their work or […]

We look at what is going on in the world and ask ourselves the same wrong questions and making the same wrong assumption: “It’s never been like this ever”. Well, it has. Always.
