There were some great lectures, good papers and some new technologies on show. Above there was a very cool physics simulation with full haptics feedback, a full body 3D scanner and a platform for really high res photography.


Beam telepresence robots were very impressive. MORE These let people have a much more personal experience than a traditional stationary video conference.


As well as 3D printing there were some cool routers and other cnc type machines in the studio this year. Great to see the range of software, hardware and materials opening up to give everyone the chance to be creative.

This paper on liquid simulations showed really practical approaches to reducing the computation while increasing the scale and complexity of the interactions.

This paper includes some nice work for capturing reflectance and shape on shiny objects. Quite amazing.

MORE This is a cool paper on high speed calculation of high quality Global Illumination.
