Colour Graduated Surfaces
Colour graduated surfaces are polygonal model surfaces whose shading is varied in brightness across each of the polygons in the same manner as gourand shading, but without the single colour. Instead, two or more corners of the polygon are assigned different colours, and gourand shading is applied to each, mapping out across the polygon.

Interesting paper on the various causes of a mineral's particular colour.
Researchers at Toyohashi University of Technology have discovered that the human bain processes the colour of a face separately to the features of that face. This is an interesting development, especially when placed in the context of crafting personalised avatar forms for AI sales agents and other interactive AI in virtual space.
There are several potential ways this display is working. One of the simplest and most plausible is a colour e-paper display behind a completely transparent display medium. The e-paper handles the picture, 'refreshing' the colour display to a matt black when the layer in front, the graphical display is activated. As soon as that deactivates, the 'oil' is re-drawn. Simple, elegant, and still far beyond us.
BigDog, a creation of Boston Dynamics, is the poster child for quadruped robots. A large, bulky pack-bot, it is designed to go anywhere a human soldier can go, walkingh across any terrain, with four firm feet. It can walk on almost any surface, run on those same surfaces, recover from being whacked hard when standing still or running, and carry half a tonne with every step whilst it does all this.
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.
This book?s author essentially sees CGI imagery as the next great art-form. This book, is an art book, filled with lavish full colour spreads of image captures from passive VR. Both TV and feature film type.
As 'Find the Red Queen' shows, a world with a palette leaning towards the dark and depressive, does not have to be entirely gray scale. A little splash of colour, can have impact without seeming too out of place, providing it is grainy, dirty, and somewhat washed out, just like the rest of the world.
The Art Models series is three books long and growing. This, the second of the volumes, is smaller than the first, and available in hardback only. Unlike the first book, it shows models of both genders, in a variety of artistic yet practical poses, in full colour and large photos. Contains DVD material.
At the beginning of 2009, Lego announced in a press release that they were teaming with German AR developer Metaio to develop an augmented reality solution for Lego kits. This went on sale in Germany and California, as test markets. So far, the test is not over, but from all indications they are doing very well.
A Detective story is unique in the Animatrix set, because it deliberately uses a different colour palette for the world. All characters seem to get on with the changed palette and treat it as normal, a grainy, yellowing film noir look. If that palette and those colours are all you have ever known, you are going to accept them as real.
