our youtube premiere

Montag, April 30th, 2007

got my first youtube video up. woot. it’s the video for our siggraph paper, which was a very collaborative effort of takeo, olga, marc and myself. i think we are all happy with the result, and getting accepted to siggraph, but check it out for yourself

we’ve made the paper(s), videos and the software available on our project pages. if you find it useful, drop us a line. feedback is always welcome. note though, that the software is a research prototype, and might crash. save often. cheers.

[update.] here some more research stuff. i present to you: silsketch.

we just got this work accepted to the workshop on sketch-based interfaces and modeling. my student johannes will be presenting at the workshop. congratulations man!

san diego summer

siggraph 2007 logo Our submission made it to siggraph 2007… yay! I have been enjoying a few months of kinda downtime, and what better way to get back into the flow of things. kinda downtime, because i was not only doing random stuff as originally planned, but have been preparing the game programming course, reviewing a relatively large amount of siggraph papers, attending a workshop on pen centric computing, and also starting to write up my phd thesis (which i will submit on may 20th, at least that’s the plan).

siggraph 2007 logosure, games were played, good friends hosted, and too much coffee consumed, but it seems i simply can’t purely slack anymore. what happened to those good old student days of blissful nothingness? ah well, good times nonetheless. if i find the time, i’ll write about it in some in some more detail. for now though, i’m looking forward to a beautiful berlin summer and a trip to san diego in august. cheers.
