Our very own Desai Chen successfully defended his PhD thesis Multiscale Methods for Fabrication Design this afternoon. His thesis committee members are Professor Wojciech Matusik, Professor Justin Solomon, and Professor Markus J. Buehler. Congratulations to Dr. Chen, and wish him the best of luck for everything in the future!
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!
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!
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!
Adriana Schulz's paper Interactive Robogami is in the news today! In this project, Adriana and her coauthors develop a tool that lets users create ambulatory robots from a library of pieces that fold and fit together like origami. Check out this video to see some adorable robots they made!
Bo Zhu's paper Two-scale topology optimization with microstructures was featured at the front page of MIT News today! It is also covered by more than 20 media sites. In this paper, Bo proposed a method that can efficiently genrate 3D-printable structures with more than 1,000,000,000,000 elements with just a regular computer. Check out his project page to learn more!
Tae-Hyun Oh is joining our group as a new postdoctoral research starting from this summer. He received his PhD from KAIST where he worked with Prof. In So Kweon and Prof. Jinwoo Shin. He is a recipient of Microsoft Research Asia fellowship, gold prize of Samsung HumanTech thesis award, Qualcomm Innovation award, and top research achievement awards from KAIST. Welcome Tae-Hyun!
Andrew Spielberg and his co-authors at Disney research and University of Toronto presented a method to help users design cable-driven robots. They will present their full paper Designing Cable-Driven Actuation Networks for Kinematic Chains and Trees at this year's SCA in Los Angeles. This work has received media attention from EurekAlert, phys.org, ECNews, and 3D printing industry.
