Full Scene Anti-Aliasing

Full Scene Anti-Aliasing, or FSAA is a type of anti aliasing where, rather than each individual object texture being anti-aliased, the whole view from the user?s viewpoint is aliased at once. This removes jagged lines and makes the area seem more realistic.

It is far less processor intensive than individual anti-aliasing, but encounters problems with partially transparent, aliased objects In the scene. It can also make the scene look worse if there is a lot of fine detail, and lines.

FSAA is usually accomplished by supersampling ? blowing the scene up to a multiple of its original size, so that each pixel of the original equals four, or sixteen of the new. Those pixels are then smoothed into aliased hegemonies, and the supersample downsized again, to become the new image.

High Dynamic Range Photography, and Use in Eye Emulation
H.D.R., or high dynamic range photography is a relatively new technique used by photographers to take high-quality full lighting range photos that are near-indistinguishable from paintings, for their ability to correctly replicate the lighting of a given scene, exactly how the human eye would see it.

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.

Large Image Display: Animatrix: Matriculated: Plugging In
This shows what is essentially a full sensory immersion LAN. An eight person, totally self contained full-immersion VR machine. As shown, the interface method is direct neural biofeedback; the staple for the Matrix universe. Each of the person's brains are connected to the system via their brainstem, allowing full two way bodily sensory stimulus. However, there is no connection to the greater internet.
