AR: this is how you fill your room with Tron (and a PS3 and some projection)

We were funded by the Video Store of PlayStation® Store (http://www.greatfilmsfillrooms.com) to make a series of movie related videos using 'Immersive Imaging' which takes 3D projection mapping as its starting point, but gives the viewer a supercharged experience with the help of the PlayStation Move controller.

In the past, projection mapping worked only from a single, static view point, and thus was very limited. By attaching the PlayStation Move to the camera, we can track projections to screens in real time, enhancing the effect of spatial deformation and false perspective on the projections and allowing viewers to look round (virtual) corners, bend walls, create a hole in the wall, or remove the walls altogether to reveal vast expanses of virtual worlds.

PORTRAIT: Korehira Watanabe, the sword maker

As one of Japan's last remaining swordsmiths, Korehira Watanabe has honed his craft for 40 years while attempting to recreate the mythical Koto sword. (more on vimeo)

TEENCULT: korean taekwondo shuffle

2NE1/LMFAO first few seconds of real taekwondo shuffling keeping it real tight, the rest is nonshuffle muscle hammering of a decent kind (yet we'd hammer it out differently, yes).

ART & FURNITURE: octopus table (isaac krauss)

Then, while taking his first bronze sculpting course, Krauss unearthed the idea and set to work. He admits to having had very little experience working with bronze, but felt that stretching beyond his limits would push him as an artist. The most difficult aspect of this project, according to Krauss, was the detailed suction cups and applying them to the octopuses eight arms. (more via boingboing)

TECH: kinect 2 possibly reading lips and emotions

But Kinect 2 might be even more mind-blowing, if a new report at Eurogamer is to be believed. Eurogamer's Wesley Yin-Poole writes that whatever replaces Kinect will be so accurate that it'll be able to read your lips and facial expressions to interpret your emotional state. Higher-resolution capture and a direct connection to a beefier chipset will allow for an exponential increase in capabilities, says an unnamed source. (more via kotaku)
