Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst in Stereo 360


Set in a highly stylized environments of the city of Glass, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is certainly a looker. At the time of its launch, it was also the very first title to support nVidia’s new Ansel technology – a suite of tools for advanced in-game photography. Among other things, Ansel allows players to capture stereoscopic 360° (VR) stills of their gameplay in glorious 8K resolution. You didn’t have to ask me twice.

No Man’s Sky: GameLapses


No Man's Sky does one thing really well: It generates amazing, varied planets, populated with all manner of flora and fauna - all whilst keeping a steady, carefully weighted art direction. Playing the game, I decided to document some of the most beautiful planets and landscapes I came across by recording time-lapse videos of these worlds.

Spin by ASD


Ever since my first Commodore 64, I have been an avid follower of the demoscene. For many years groups like Fairlight, Kewlers, The Black Lotus, Orange, Farbrausch and more recently ASD (Andromeda Software Development) have been pushing the art of realtime graphics into new extremes.

While entertaining to watch however, demos usually had a tendency to lack in the art direction department. The would excel in cool visual effects, pumping more and more graphics at better framerates and higher resolutions - but being primarily created by coders, not artists, the majority were more of a technical showcase rather than an artistic pursuit. In the recent years, the new breed of demos started emerging - one where art and code truly go hand in hand. One that can easily rival the amazing vfx and motion design pieces from the world renown motion design directors.

Tim Minchin: Storm


Over a year ago I posted a trailer for a fantastic animated short entitled Storm. The film was to be written and performed by Tim Minchin and directed by DC Turner and scheduled for release in 2010. They year has gone and passed and I assumed the film was cancelled. Apparently I haven't followed it closely enough. The film was released in festivals in 2010 - and in April 2011 it premiered on YouTube.

Mona Lisa Revisions


I found this one on a Turkish t-shirt site geyikadam.com. It is so spot-on, that I decided to translate it into English and share with you all.

If you have ever worked on a commercial design project, you should get a good laugh out of it.

Convert time and dates using Wolfram Alpha


There are a whole bunch of sites that deal with time conversion, but they are either painfully ugly to look at or week on functionality. Google, as of yet, does not do any time conversions. I decided to try Wolfram|Alpha - the awesome "scientist in a box" from the authors of Mathematica. The result it returned was nothing short of perfect.
