Using Markerless Augmented Reality for Digital Avatars

How do we get digital objects to play well with reality (and with the human at the center of an augmented experience)? Creating compelling AR experiences hangs in the balance of this question and the way we integrate virtual overlays with real world environments. Pokemon Go, the breakout AR success

An Argument for Motion Intelligence

Our demos are often designed to show how intelligent simulation can synthesize even the most complex physical skills—from creating digital Basketball players to simulated stunt men. However, our most recent experiment focuses on simulating something more subtle: body language. Specifically, argumentative gesturing in a multi-character scenario.  

Each of the

Building Virtual Robots: Exploring Mechanical Simulation

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
