Epoxy is a magical substance.  You can make all sorts of cool things with it if you’re willing to experiment.  Using some old wires, cat-5, telephone, and plain copper.  They actually look pretty good, especially with the randomness of the wires as they are placed within the epoxy.

If you sit through the entire 10 minutes of the above video you will find probably a dozen different setups of the so called “acoustic sound sculptures” or something.  To me, all I see and hear … Continued

Lagoa Multiphysics 1.0 – Teaser from Thiago Costa on Vimeo. I’m no 3-D artist, or game designer, but I can tell you that that has some serious potential.  For the most part it looks entirely realistic, but who knows how much processing power that takes.  And, it looks like this is just a plugin for … Continued
