Angle Overrides

Angle overrides apply to hierarchical skeletal modelling systems that are used to control how avatars move, allowing realistic movement as bones swing around connecting vertex points.

Angle overrides allow the angles of a subset of bones to change compared to what the current animation sequence directs. This is used when overlaying one sequence upon another. For example, a walking sequence is overlaid with an emotional sequence involving clasped hands. The second sequence does not affect the legs, so only the vertexes connected to bones it needs are changed. The first sequence is overridden and bone angles for part of the body change, creating a new sequence that is a combination of the two.

3-D Modeling Advance: A single photo can be reconstructed into a 3-D scene
Building on the premise of Parallax mapping, in which 3D displacement of surfaces is faked by means of displacing textures both by creating a height map of their protuberance from 3D space and then calculating the angle of that protuberance relative to the angle the observer is looking, Microsoft and Make3D have created a process allowing a single photo to become a 3D scene.

Looks more important than Sounds in Speech
A neurological experiment has confirmed that the McGurk effect - a long-known phenomenon where what you see overrides what you hear - is indeed codified directly into the sound processing regions of the brain. Meaning the McGurk effect is not something that can be barpassed in our virtual environments, and is not a trick of sensory perception, but rather is a cornerstone of sound perception itself.

NASA to Study People Horizontal for Weeks
In one of those uncommon times when space travel research and virtual reality development collide, the NASA bed rest study program is designed to observe the effects of staying in bed for long periods on healthy individuals. The VR angle is it is an excellent way to gather data about extended periods with the mind plumbed into a virtual reality environment with the body just?there.
