One paper accepted at SIGGRAPH Asia 2017

Congratulations to Liang Shi on his newly accepted paper Near-eye Light Field Holographic Rendering with Spherical Waves for Wide Field of View Interactive 3D Computer Graphics at SIGGRAPH Asia this year! In this paper Liang and his colleagues at Nvidia present a light field-based CGH rendering pipeline allowing for reproduction of high-definition 3D scenes with continuous depth and support of intra-pupil view-dependent occlusion. Want to learn more? Please check out their project page and this cool video!

3D-printed self-folding electronics on MIT front page!

Subramanian Sundaram's recent work 3D-printed self-folding electronics was selected as Today's spotlight on MIT front page this morning! In this paper, Subra and his colleagues built a prototype self-folding printable device that includes electrical leads and a polymer “pixel” that changes from transparent to opaque when a voltage is applied to it. Check out this video to learn more about this tiny and cute self-folding robot!

New PhD student joining our group

We are pleased to announce that Yuanming Hu is joining our group as a PhD student starting from September 2017. Yuanming obtained his Bachelor's in Computer Science from Yao class at Tsinghua University. His research interests include physics-based simulation and rendering, as well as many other topics in computer graphics. Yuanming is also the author of Taichi, a popular open-source computer graphics software that implements more than 40 Siggraph/ToG papers. Welcome!
