Texture Swimming

Texture Swimming is an unnatural motion in unmoving textures as they are rotated or zoom into the distance. The eye starts seeing patterns and swirls that are not really there. The cause is computationally cheap (and shabby) texture interpolation. It is correctable with perspective correction.

Haptics: Texture
Haptics is the study of the sense of touch. There are many parts to touch, and five different types of touch nerve in the nervous system. Here, we look at what goes into detecting texture, how the nerves work, and some initial attempts to interface with them for VR.

Messing with Tangent Space
Tangent space is sometimes called texture space. It is the co-ordinate systems for one face of any 3D skinned model. Use of tangent space, which this tutorial covers, is necessary to properly map a texture onto part of a 3D shape.
