    "Splatoon" is everything you could want out of a new Nintendo IP. It somehow manages to be both cute and cool. It freshens a well-traveled genre with a neat game mechanic. The only thing holding it back could be Nintendo: the Wii U Gamepad's battery life is weak, the online battle modes are presently limited by a rotation system that takes choice away from players and the overall amount of content is lacking outside of the weapons and gear customization. If the company supports “Splatoon” as they say they will, though, we could very well be talking about these Inklings for a long, long time.

  • Surreal Vision teaming with Oculus Rift

    Enjoy the cool official news.

    Surreal Vision is one of the top computer vision teams in the world focused on real-time 3D scene reconstruction – generating an accurate representation of the real world in the virtual world. Great scene reconstruction will enable a new level of presence and telepresence, allowing you to move around the real world and interact with real-world objects from within VR.

    The three founders, all PhDs from Andrew Davison’s pioneering lab at Imperial College London, areRichard Newcombe, the inventor of KinectFusion, DynamicFusion and DTAM (Dense Tracking and Mapping) and co-inventor of SLAM++; Renato Salas-Moreno, the inventor of SLAM++ (SLAM at the level of objects), and Dense Planar SLAM; and Steven Lovegrove, the co-inventor of DTAM and author of SplineFusion.

    The team wanted to share a few words on their vision for Surreal at Oculus:

    “From the human point of view, the world is constantly in motion. As we move around, our eyes dart about the scene and the rich dynamical nature of the scene’s contents come flooding in. We’re able to make sense of those changing signals to produce a coherent understanding of the world we live in, which we effortlessly navigate and interact with. Over the past three decades, a great deal of work in computer vision has attempted to mimic human-class perceptual capabilities using color and depth cameras.

    At Surreal Vision, we are overhauling state-of-the-art 3D scene reconstruction algorithms to provide a rich, up-to-date model of everything in the environment including people and their interactions with each other. We’re developing breakthrough techniques to capture, interpret, manage, analyse, and finally reproject in real-time a model of reality back to the user in a way that feels real, creating a new, mixed reality that brings together the virtual and real worlds.

    Ultimately, these technologies will lead to VR and AR systems that can be used in any condition, day or night, indoors or outdoors. They will open the door to true telepresence, where people can visit anyone, anywhere.

    Much progress has been made toward this future, but significant challenges remain. For virtual reality, the accuracy and quality of the continuously updating 3D reconstruction must be near flawless, which is a requirement almost no other modern computer vision problem faces. When we cross these seminal thresholds, users will perceive the virtual world as truly real – and that is the experience we’re driving toward.

    By achieving the ability to continuously reconstruct and track the world around us, we’ll be able to build an understanding of the world at a semantic level. This will bring the power of the digital world to the myriad of interactions we as humans perform everyday, leading toward a breakthrough in human-computer interaction and a computing platform that has true spatial awareness.

    Given the team, the resources, and this shared vision, there’s no better place for us to help bring about these breakthroughs than Oculus. We’re incredibly excited for the future.” — Richard and the Surreal Vision team

    Richard, Renato, and Steven will continue their work pushing the boundaries of computer vision and scene reconstruction as part of Oculus Research in Redmond, Washington. Please join us in welcoming them to the team!

  • Powers: The Complete First Season heading to Blu-ray/DVD in July

    Missed this the first time around, but might have to check it out on Blu-ray. Check out the official details below.

    CULVER CITY, Calif. (May 26, 2015) – POWERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON, a PlayStation Original series, is the first scripted series for PlayStation Network. The series will be available on Digital HD July 13 and on Blu-ray and DVD July 14 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Based on the 2004 comic book series of the same name from artist Michael Avon Oeming and writer Brian Michael Bendis (TV’s “Ultimate Spider-Man”), the series stars Sharlto Copley (District 9), Susan Heyward (TV’s “The Following”), Noah Taylor (TV’s “Game of Thrones”), Olesya Rulin, Adam Godley, Max Fowler, with Michelle Forbes (TV’s “Orphan Black”) and British actor and comedian Eddie Izzard (TV’s “United States of Tara”). Set amidst today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, POWERS asks the question, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all?
     
    POWERS follows LAPD “Powers Division” detectives Christian Walker (Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Heyward) as they investigate homicide cases involving people with superhuman abilities. Walker, once operating as a power until he lost his abilities to the super villain Wolfe (Izzard), now operates with just a gun and a badge to take down the formidable foes plaguing Los Angeles. The POWERS cast also includes Logan Browning (TV’s “Hit the Floor”).
     
    POWERS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON will be available on both Blu-ray and DVD as a three-disc set with all 10 episodes. Both the Blu-ray and DVD will include the featurette “Policing the All Powerful: Envisioning and Filming Powers”; exclusive to the Blu-ray will be an additional featurette, “From One Visual Medium to Another: The Art and Adaptation of Powers,” as well as deleted scenes and outtakes.
     
    Synopsis:
    What if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all their “powers” were just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals? Enter the men and women of the Powers Division, the brave people in charge of protecting humans like us and keeping the peace over commercialized, god-like men and women who glide through the sky imposing their power over the mortals who both worship and fear them. Based on the graphic novel by Michael Avon Oeming and Brian Michael Bendis, the edgy and dramatic POWERS follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who are assigned to investigate these cases.
     
    DVD/Blu-ray Special Features:
    •           “Policing the All Powerful: Envisioning and Filming Powers”
     
    Blu-ray Exclusive Special Features:
