awesome find, i heard about it, but never saw it in action.
this is very promising, but the price is way too expensive

let`s hope they mass produce it

Just watched the Beowolf trailer again, only this time I realised the whole film is in 3d. Guess I'm used to everything 3d having penguins in it.
Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

Oh, the tenori-on was also presented at the Ars Electronica in Linz, my hometown more or less. That's not a name to stumble across much on the net.


And on a completely irrelevant note, I find the etymology of Beowulf kinda cute. Literally it's bee-wolf, which is what bears were called (which is one thing I actually just found out via wikipedia, after two semesters of English literature and the history of English)

i would normally wonder about a wikipedia reference, but that one's in our notes, yup :P

interesting idea for a movie, they would have to flesh out quite a bit and cut even more to make it entertaining tho ^^
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

I know I'm very late in saying this, but oh well.

While I'm hardly an anime fan, I don't exactly hate the style, but I just sorta recalled one of the things I really really really hate about anime.
That weird phenomenon where anime characters eyes just magically disappear

not the best example, but I just skimmed through the only anime I have.
it's much worse where one eye should only be partly obscured by a little bit of hair, but they just don't even draw the eye, or when a character is doing the.. menacing limp body walking towdards you thing with their head down, they almost always just have a dark shadow covering where their eyes should be

Man cannot remake himself without suffering for he is both the marble and the sculptor.

I can honestly say that he has assembled one of the most thorough and comprehensive lists of beliefs I have ever seen.
