Fire fluid simulation

Fire fluid simulation
New version of fluid simulation sandbox, more realistic and accurate. You can create and mix fire fluids, draw wooden or stone walls, burn them up, create particles, air emitters and burn it all with fireball. Enjoy! Keyboard shortcuts: [Q] - fire [A] - wind [W] - wooden wall [S] - stone wall [D] - delete wall [E] - fireball![R] - particles of dust [F] - remove particles[T] - air emitter (visible only when edited)[G] - delete air emitter BURN - burn up wooden walls [on|off] OXYGEN - use oxygen simulation [on|off] BLUR - motion blur effect (slower) [on|off] RESET - clear scene This is the latest version, link to older version is here. Troubleshoot help: The applet is tested and working with Firefox, Opera and Internet Exporer with Java plugin. If applet is not running in a browser window try to: Programmed in processing.

OpenNI - OpenNI > Downloads > OpenNI Modules I wanted to try Kinect from the day it got released but i didn’t have the chance till yesterday. It really is an incredible little thing, you can use for many different projects. Below you can find easy steps in order to install the necessary drivers on your PC in order to have a working connection with Kinect. Also at the end you can find some additional information if you want to use it in Unity 3D, which is awesome by the way. Before we begin please note that for some drivers you will have to choose between Development and Redist editions. If you want to have the samples ( with which you can try your Kinect connection at the end ) and extensive documentation you must choose Development

peter blaskovic This is my experimental research in field of art, graphics, math, physics... I have fun to mix different subjects together and finding a new ways of expression. Some of them have great usage in new medias, production or simulations, some of them are just for fun. :) Experiments are created in Processing or Flash . Coolest. Stage. Ever Nov 29, 2010 Check out this incredible floating stage on Lake Constance in Bregenz, Austria. The Bregenzer Festspiele (Bregenz Festival) has become renowned for its unconventional staging of shows. RGB Wallpaper For the Milan Design Week, Italian studio Carnovsky created a series of wallpapers that react to different coloured lights UPDATE: new versions of the wallpapers are on display in a new exhibition in Berlin alongside prints and playing cards using the same technique. See our story here The designs were created for the Milan shop of Janelli & Volpi, a noted Italian wallpaper brand. Each features overlapping illustrations, different elements of which are revealed depending on whether a blue, green or red light is shone upon them. This one deals with the human body

Matt's Webcorner - Kinect Sensor Programming The Kinect is an attachment for the Xbox 360 that combines four microphones, a standard RGB camera, a depth camera, and a motorized tilt. Although none of these individually are new, previously depth sensors have cost over $5000, and the comparatively cheap $150 pricetag for the Kinect makes it highly accessible to hobbyist and academics. This has spurred a lot of work into creating functional drivers for many operating systems so the Kinect can be used outside of the Xbox 360. You can find a decent overview of the current state of people working on Kinect here. I decided to hack around with the Kinect partially because Pat Hanrahan bought us a Kinect and partially becauase I wanted to see if it had a good enough resolution to be used for my scene reconstruction algorithm. I also think the Kinect has pretty significant implications for cheap robotics projects that I might one day work on.

Animated gif over a jpg image It is a tweet from Ryan Seddon that gave me the idea to use a <img> element with a background image to reduce the weight of large animated (gif) images. The original image the artist is using is an animated gif file that weighs 387.5 kb I sliced the image to save the animated part as a gif file (size 152.7 kb) and the static part as a jpg file (size 66.7 kb). Fashion Inspiration: Circular Beauty Looking at the artwork of a friend of mine, I started thinking about how his work related to the fashion and style around us. Clint Colburn is a Lexington based artist known for using circles of all sizes to create a larger harmony within a larger picture. This works the same within the fashion realm. Each component works in harmony with the other components, resulting in a larger piece or product. There is a beauty and a science to it, all at the same time.

3D Paintings Using multiple layers of clear glass, Canada based David Spriggs and Chinese born Xia Xiaowan, transform flat artwork into 3D sculptures. Viewers are treated to different shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space. Spriggs work revolves around powerful explosive imagery, often resembling storms, cosmic blasts or firework like explosions. Xiawan’s “spatial paintings,” which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect. See Also INCREDIBLE 3D ILLUSTRATIONS JUMP OUT OF THE SKETCHBOOK Kinect Color - Detph Camera Calibration Kinect has two cameras, one for capturing a color image and the other for capturing an IR image. Although real-time depth information is provided by IR camera, the depth map tells how far the IR camera's pixels are and we actually do not know the depth information of the color image because the two cameras have different characteristics. As we can see in the image below, the pixels do not match in the two images. The locations of the hand and arm are completely different in the two images. If we use the Kinect device for HCI, it does not matter much because using depth information is enough in most cases.

HTML5-Powered Web Applications: 19 Early Adopters HTML5, rumored as Flash killer, is a brand new web technology that raises a revolution lead by Apple in web application development. It contains canvas element for images and animation drawings, support video and audio embedding, and includes storage database for offline web applications. Most important of all, you don’t need a plugin to get all these features, your latest browser supports that. Sounds pretty cool, but what HTML5 can do actually?
