Szymon Rusinkiewicz, professor of computer science, and collaborators at Industrial Light & Magic and USC have devised a new technique for making digital hair look more natural (see video above). They will present their new paper in July at SIGGRAPH, the premier computer graphics conference. Great coverage here from ExtremeTech.

Below watch a video on the graphic magic that will be featured in the upcoming Siggraph conference: melting rabbits, undulating lassos, exploding buildings, sculptures that balance on a pinpoint, handwriting beautification, modular 3D printing, Rapunzel tresses (above), and a virtual snowball fight. The video is narrated by our own Adam Finkelstein, professor of computer science.
