    I want to see more about almost all of these things.

    As always, watch in the highest possible resolution. The snow simulation could revolutionize the anthropocene– no longer will a child have to travel to exotic and far away lands to experience the white stuff.

    Dammit I wish I could afford to go this year…

    I also wish I could have gotten a paper in.

    It’s great to watch these every year. Many papers combine or refine ideas from the previous year. You’ll see conceptual, impractical stuff optimized for real-time. After a few years, it shows up in a video game, photoshop filter, or iphone app.

    Wow… now that’s a dense gathering of subject in that one tiny video. I wish each of them had a “would you like to know more?” button :)
