Adam Glick’s SIGGRAPH Picks

by on July 16, 2009

BOXXLabs, the research division of BOXX technologies, lead technologist Adam Glick has a good writeup on what he predicts will be the big focuses at SIGGRAPH this year.  He opens with an interesting discussion of why the “shrinking” of SIGGRAPH is a good thing.

Attending SIGGRAPH provides stellar opportunities to see first hand, the emerging technologies and academic research projects that will shape the future of the computer graphics world. With less people in attendance, those of us that do show up hopefully won’t have to wait in line as long to watch demos, or to get “hands on” time with demo systems and technology prototypes. I personally love to see the new stuff up close -to me it’s easily the most interesting and inspiring part of SIGRAPH.

He then moves on to predictions.  His picks:

  • Bye-bye HD, hello 4K and bigger
  • Stereoscopic 3D
  • Augmented Reality
  • Too much fun on Bourbon street.
