Graffiti Analysis - Vimperator

Graffiti Analysis - Vimperator
sdfg A digital graffiti blackbook designed for documenting more than just ink. Graffiti Analysis is an extensive ongoing study in the motion of graffiti. Custom software designed for graffiti writers creates visualizations of the often unseen gestures involved in the creation of a tag. Motion data is recorded, analyzed and archived as Graffiti Markup Language (.gml) files, a specifically formatted XML file designed to be a common open structure for archiving gestural graffiti motion data. GML files are saved in an open online database,, where writers can share analytical representations of their hand styles.

IP to ASN Mapping - Team Cymru - Vimperator The whois daemon acts like a standard whois server would, but with some added functionality. It accepts arguments on the command-line for single whois queries, and it also supports BULK IP submissions when combined with GNU's netcat for those who wish to optimize their queries. When issuing requests for two or more IPs we strongly suggest you use netcat for BULK IP submissions, or DNS since there is less overhead. As a measure of speed, queries of approximately 100,000 IPs should return in less than a minute given a moderately sized Internet link. WARNING: IPs that are seen abusing the whois server with large numbers of individual queries instead of using the bulk netcat interface will be null routed. If at all possible you should consider using the DNS based query interface since it is much more efficient for individual queries.

ICT Graphics Lab With cast and crew from Benjamin Button and Avatar, Digital Emily was part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences'"Acting in the Digital Age" event, 4/22/2010 Introduction: Over the last few years our lab has been developing a new high-resolution realistic face scanning process using our light stage systems, which we first published at the 2007 Eurographics Symposium on Rendering. In early 2008 we were approached by Image Metrics about collaborating with them to create a realistic animated digital actor as a demo for their booth at the approaching SIGGRAPH 2008 conference. Since we'd gotten pretty good at scanning actors in different facial poses and Image Metrics has some really neat facial animation technology, this seemed like a promising project to work on.

Ghost Billboard Erected on U.S.-Canada Border By Duncan Geere, Wired UK A U.S. art studio called Lead Pencil Studio has created a sculpture on the border between the United States and Canada that consists of a blank space in the shape of a billboard, surrounded by tangled metal. Titled Non-Sign II, the piece was commissioned by the U.S. government. The artists behind it are Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo, who’ve won numerous awards for their work over the last decade. The pair carefully twisted metal to give the appearance of a ghost of one of the billboards that populate the area. Han and Mihalyo told The Stranger that they hope the sculpture will add a bit of awareness to the signage landscape in the border zone, as it flies past the inhabitants of passing cars.

When I started my artist residency at MakerBot, I knew I had to combine 3d scanning and 3d printing. One of the first ideas we had was to set up a 3d photo booth at MakerBot to scan visitors. So I wrote an app called KinectToStl which first launched at the MakerBot NY user group.

diewald_CV_kit - Vimperator diewald_CV_kit A library by Thomas Diewald for the Processing programming environment. Last update, 13/12/2012. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- this library contains tools that are used in the field of computer vision. its not a wrapper of openCV or some other libraries , so maybe you are missing some features ( ... which may be implemented in the future). its designed to be very fast to use it for realtime applications (webcam-tracking, kinect-tracking, ...). also, it works very well in combination with the kinect-library (dlibs.freenect - )... which i basically built it for ... to track blobs, generate contours from 3d-data, and else. it should work in combination with other libraries too, since the blobdetection is very flexible and works with any given data-arrays.

The building blocks of various widths on the wall, lit from the right, casts a silhouette of a woman.
