The Los Angeles Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH and the LA 3-D Club want you to participate in our non-competitive 3D Stereoscopic film festival. The LA 3-D Club (Stereo Club of Southern California) was established in the Greater Los Angeles area in 1955 by a dedicated group of 3D stereo photographers to further the art and science of stereoscopic photography and film. LA ACM SIGGRAPH was founded in 1980 for educational and scientific purposes relating to the field of computer graphics. With the resurgence of 3D Stereoscopy in the Digital Age, the partnership between these two seminal Los Angeles institutions presents a forum for both professional and independent home-brew 3D stereoscopic film makers to show their work to an appreciative audience on the big screen at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles. This is a call for participation. There are no entry fees. Members of the Los Angeles ACM SIGGRAPH Council will notify accepted entrants via email. Those artists whose works are chosen to appear in the screening will receive free admission to the event. Persons of any age may submit work and attend the event. The screening is scheduled for March, 2012. The submission deadline is March 5th, 2012. Submit your work as early as possible for consideration. Please visit this site for further information.

The Cobham catalog, exposed by The Intercept, features countless pages of surveillance gadgets sold to U.S. police to spy on American citizens: tiny black boxes with a big interest in you. In the creepily bland feature lists and nerdy product names is a whisper of a dark future; perhaps darker than anyone can imagine.
This image depicts the most commonly-found stylesheet colors on the web’s top sites—Paul Hebert did an amazing amount of analysis and this is just one of the intriguing visualizations he came up with. Most of these are obvious staples, especially HTML red and blue, though it’s interesting how far the blue “cluster” is from the […]

The ARMOR-X Mini Flexible Phone Tripod is a smartphone tripod that is designed with flexible legs to rest on virtually any type of surface.
