Hello! This is part one of a short series of posts on writing a simple raytracer in Rust. I’ve never written one of these before, so it should be a learning experience all around.

Painted letters from 1882, found while browsing Patricia's uploaded ephemera on Flickr. I digitised Monstre to use across titles, logos, layouts and animations. Designers can manipulate five layers of lighting and shading to achieve the right look. Monstre retains original slight imperfections so as not to completely erase the feeling of the human touch when it was first coloured and shaded in 1882. Download the font, share it with friends, and email me if you use it in one of your projects. I'd love to see what you can do with it.

Raise your hands and wave hello to the future. The Leap Motion controller senses your individual hand and finger movements so you can interact directly with your computer. Just connect our device and instantly get 8 cubic feet of awesome, intuitive, 3D interaction space.

1 + 2 = if you use stereo 3D routinely and intensively, you will develop strabismus, period.

What this means is that shutterglasses+LCD TVs, VR helmets, polarized projection with passive glasses, and all autostereoscopic (no glasses) methods like Cubicvue's color filter barrier, parallax barrier, and lenticular arrays, are ALL DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH unless used sparingly.

Yeah, it's just a post on some discussion forum, but it includes a couple of interesting links that, allegedly, back up its claims.

I finally received my Makerbot Replicator (makerbot.com) and I am VERY impressed. After printing a handful of objects off of Thingiverse and dialing in my printer I promptly began work on my version of 3D printed quadcopter.

Wow, yet another reason to want a 3D printer...

The first underwater panoramic images were added to Google Maps with the help of Catlin Seaview Survey scientific expedition, which hoped that the up-close view of underwater wonders would inspire people to protect them.

James Cameron and his team of minions may have produced the high watermark for 3D technology in the 21st century, but it seems the Nazis got there first. The Australian film-maker Philippe Mora says he has discovered two 30-minute 3D films shot by propagandists for the Third Reich in 1936, a full 16 years before the format first became briefly popular in the US.

p2gStereoStage™ is the world's first Flash-based Universal Stereo-3D Display System™ for the World Wide Web. Pushing Flash 10 technology to its outer limits, p2gStereoStage™ reads a plethora of audiovisual source media (3D and 2D) and processes them into coherent, high-impact, on-line shows that thrill audiences. Open the p2gStereoStage™ Gallery to get an idea of how versatile the system can be deployed.

This scientific visualization creates a three-dimensional virtual tour of several dark pillars of cool gas in the Carina Nebula. The stars and nebula layers from Hubble's two-dimensional image have been separated using both scientific knowledge and artistic license to create the depth in the movie. Of note, the relative distances between stars and the nebula have been greatly compressed. The result is an intriguing journey through a virtual cosmic landscape.

This version of the movie is presented in anaglyph stereo 3D and is viewable with glasses that have a red lens over the left eye and a cyan (a.k.a. blue-green) lens over the right eye. Such glasses are often made of cardboard and have been distributed in numerous 3-D promotions. An internet search for "red cyan anaglyph glasses" will provide many options for obtaining such glasses.

In the beginning, there will only be two to three 3D programmings available monthly. Whether those will be free or paid content are still under consideration.
