SIGGRAPH 2018 Emerging Technologies Focus on Health and Home, Studio Projects Merge Collaboration and Interactivity

Inria Rennes, North Carolina Central University (NCCU), and Institut de Recherche en Informatique et Systèmes Aléatoires (IRISA)
One Man Movie is a VR authoring system that enables the crafting of filmic sequences with no prior knowledge in 3D animation. The system is designed to reflect the traditional creative process in film pre-production through stages like scene layout, animation of characters, placement of cameras, and editing.

Metamaterial Devices
Hasso Plattner Institute and University of Potsdam
Traditionally, metamaterials were understood as materials with deformation properties that are defined by their inner structure. SIGGRAPH’s Studio program, however, doesn’t think of them as materials, but rather as devices. Studio will present metamaterial devices, such as analog or digital machines, and software tools that assist novice users in designing and fabricating them.

PaperPrinting: A Machine for Prototyping Paper and Its Applications for Graphic Design
Keio University and The University of Tokyo
Studio will present a system that makes paper through an additive manufacturing process by using a dispenser mounted on an XY plotter. By using this system, graphic designers can design and output paper itself, which is difficult in an existing paper production processes.

Both the Emerging Technologies and Studio programs will offer experience presentations from select project creators. Access to installations, presentations, and workshops is open to attendees with Exhibits Plus registration and above.
