Physical character interaction is hard to fake–whether it’s between two in-world characters, between users and characters, or between a character or avatar and its environmental surroundings. Nevertheless, interaction is central to user-driven storytelling and building immersive VR and AR experiences that suspend disbelief.
What's in a SphereBot?
“SphereBot” is an experiment in robotic simulation by one of our physics engineers, Tom Mirades. While Tom isn’t creating a hardware controller to drive a real-world replica, he is motivated by an adjacent question: “how close to reality can I make something behave?” Tom is
From using digital doubles for physical therapy, to virtual reality practitioners and support dogs—interactive character simulation will improve wellness and enrich medicine. We built some prototypes to explore these applications.
Back pain is endemic to modern life; according to the American Chiropractic Association, back pain is one of the
Welcome back to Learning 2D Character Animation 101! Our third lesson will focus on the process of “weighting” your character rig (read our second lesson on Adding Bones to Your Character here). Now that you’ve added bones to your character, you need to dictate what effect each bone has
DeepMotion Neuron, the company’s new cloud application for training motion skills to digital characters, leverages cutting-edge AI and physical simulation techniques to create lifelike, responsive actors, as shown in new SIGGRAPH paper.
