5 tips to improve your VR creations

Vertex workshop leader Glen Southern shares his top tips to help you improve your VR sculpting. Virtual reality isn’t new. It’s been tried many times before and failed a fair few of those times. Sculpting in VR on the other hand is a different story. With modern hardware and machine specs it’s now a very viable way of concepting, designing and actually building 3D models, including characters and creatures. While ZBrush clearly holds the crown for digital sculpting, there are a thousand and one other programs that allow you to create your critters in 3D. There aren’t many that allow you to do it in a virtual room and walk around the creature as you create it. You can work with it in your lap sitting down and rotating your creation around in your hands or you can setup your work space to allow gigantic sculptures and even walk inside them as you Read the full article…

A UX lesson from a ATM machine

This is not a technical post as I usually write, but rather something funny that happened to me and I wanted to share with you: I have been to Romania and got my card stuck in the ATM machine. A simple UX improvement could have prevented that! Last year I presented at the GDG DevFest Romania and took the opportunity to take some time to rest over there. The conference was awesome: great venue and speakers, beautiful city and what really took my attention, really warm and welcoming people! However, one thing that happened over there almost ruined the trip, I’ve got my credit card stuck in the ATM machine! How did it happen? I’ve put the credit card in the machine and after selecting the amount desired and putting my password, the machine gave me back the money right away without asking me to take out the card. Myself and my wife got so Read the full article…

An institute studying ‘existential risk’ has made a Civilization mod about superintelligent AI

Whether or not you think superintelligent AI poses a credible threat to humanity in the near future, you have to admit it’s a problem at least worth thinking about — or hey, maybe even playing a game about it. That’s why Cambridge University’s Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) has released a mod for popular strategy title Civilization V that’s all about mitigating the threat from superintelligent AI. CSER isn’t usually known for its gaming products. The research group was founded in 2012, and is dedicated to exploring various global catastrophes capable of collapsing civilization or wiping out humanity altogether — otherwise known as “existential threats.” These include not only superintelligent AI (a computer program that… Read the full article…

Should you be worried about Meltdown and Spectre?

If you’ve been paying any attention to the news over the past couple of days then you’re bound to have noticed that there’s a pair of serious new computer vulnerabilities out there. Meltdown and Spectre are critical CPU exploits that make it possible to steal passwords and sensitive data from privileged memory – including the supposedly secure kernel – with a bit of malicious JavaScript in the browser. At first it seemed that mainly Intel CPUs were at risk, but it’s since become apparent most other CPUs are vulnerable too. Are you at risk? So are you at risk? The simple answer is that if you’re using hardware made within the past 10 or so years, then yes, almost certainly. Whether you’re using a PC, a Mac or an iPad Pro, if it’s not patched against Meltdown and Spectre then it’s a potential target. On top of that, both Meltdown Read the full article…

Dwelling On The Past: The Importance Of Self Reflection (Part 2)

Current and aspiring web professionals must continually grow in order to stay relevant. Our field doesn’t allow for stagnation. In part one of this series, I discussed the importance of project retrospectives in facilitating and documenting team growth. We don’t always have the luxury of engaging in team retrospectives, or even of working on teams. Personal reflection provides similar benefits, while focusing on your individual experiences. Personal reflection enables us to process and make meaning of all of the great (and not so great) learning and working experiences we’ve had. Read the full article…

Watch this time-lapse of an illustrator drawing all 802 Pokémon

If you’re a millennial, you probably grew up trying to catch ‘em all, but now one illustrator has drawn them all, as spotted by Kotaku. Christopher Cayco has uploaded a 96-minute time-lapse video that shows him outlining each of the 802-plus monsters before painstakingly coloring them in. It took Cayco a total of 350 hours over 42 days to draw each of the 802 monsters and their variants. The variations include 24 different Pikachus, gender variations for some species of the monsters, Aloha variations, among others. Cayco has also included miscellaneous items like mega stones, gym badges, as well as glitch pokémon. The result is a glorious work of art that’s chaotic and nerdy and wonderful. It also reminds me of Where’s… Read the full article…
