How that crazy city of Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy was made

by Casey Chan

One of the reasons I enjoyed Guardians of the Galaxy so much was because I got to explore a world in which I had no expectations. Take that crazy city Knowhere, which is inside a giant Celestial head, I didn't even know it existed, let alone know what it "should" look like. Here's the VFX reel showing how the city was built.

Best to start them early.

by András Neltz

Best to start them early. Redditor Pypok and his wife needed a theme for their son's nursery, and Pypok suggested space (by way of Kerbal Space Program). Turned out rather well, I'd say—perfect for a future space explorer. There are some in-progress photos in the embedded Imgur album below.

Full-Duplex Radio Integrated Circuit Could Double Radio Frequency Data Capacity

by timothy
Zothecula writes Full-duplex radio communication usually involves transmitters and receivers operating at different frequencies. Simultaneous transmission and reception on the same frequency is the Holy Grail for researchers, but has proved difficult to achieve. Those that have been built have proven complex and bulky, but to be commercially useful in the ever-shrinking world of communications technology, miniaturization is key. To this end, engineers at Columbia University (CU) claim to have created a world-first, full-duplex radio transceiver, all on one miniature integrated circuit.

WEVR Launches $1 Million VR Grant Program, Up to $50,000 Available for VR Storytellers

by Scott Hayden

WEVR, formerly known as WemoLab, announced their new $1Million grant today, a program aimed at anyone looking to get into the new field of cinematic VR.

WEVR, the VR company collaborating to produce experiences such as 360 video Space Shuttle Endeavour, and new HTC Vive demo, The Encounter, have announced OnWEVR today, a new $1 Million grant program that could net prospective VR content producers anywhere between $5,000 to $50,000 in project funds.

WEVR collaborates with several independent studios already to produce content for their VR distribution platform; including mobile, desktop, and the sort of room-scale VR content made possible with HTC Vive. Successful applicants of the grant will have free use of WEVR’s proprietary VR media player and distribution technology platform, but it’s unclear whether grant winners will be obligated to publish solely with WEVR.

“Our main hope is that OnWEVR will help producers who come up with exciting VR experiences to launch themselves in this new space using the grant funding,” says co-founder, Anthony Batt. “There really aren’t many funding opportunities for VR storytellers, so we wanted to create something very lightweight that helps producers, helps us, and helps the VR community.”

Grant Guidlines

Your project must be a VR experience a few minutes in length and use WEVR’s VR media player software. All that’s required for consideration is a short written pitch, a video (either on YouTube or in a DropBox folder) explaining your VR story, and a URL for any other supporting files (videos, graphics, presentations), if applicable. The OnWEVR program is for anyone in the VR community, from the enthusiast experimenting with making their own VR content to the seasoned veteran.

The company has made no specifications regarding the sort of VR experiences eligible for their grant, whether they’re preferring 360 video or rendered content. We’ll be following any news to come out about the grant and its winners, so check back for updates.

Lynda - Drawing Vector Graphics: Hand Lettering


Lynda - Drawing Vector Graphics: Hand Lettering
1.99GB | Duration: 4h 33m | Video: AVC (.mp4) 1280x720 30fps | Audio: AAC 48KHz 2ch
Genre: eLearning | Level: Beginner | Language: English

Typography and lettering are distinct yet intimately interwoven art forms. While typography relies on established fonts, lettering relies on the hand of an artist. However, since hand lettering, like typography, is usually destined for print or the web, it's critical for illustrators to be able to transform their letterform drawings into pristine vector graphics. In this installment of Drawing Vector Graphics, Von Glitschka takes members through the entire creative process of hand lettering: starting with analog drawing tools, then using Adobe Illustrator to turn his drawings into vector graphics that can be further customized and scaled up or down.
