Tech Talks

Tech Talks & Election banner
We invite you to join us for another installment of our Tech Talks at 7pm on November 25th 2014 in the downstairs of The Monarch Tavern.

We are delighted to once again host SIGGRAPH Dailies. Mark Elendt, Dailies Program Chair for SIGGRAPH 2013 and 2014, will once again join us and present a celebration of excellence in computer graphics. Dailies lets you experience the vibrant production culture behind the finished art. It is a series of very short presentations by artists who tell the story behind the imagery they created. With less than two minutes for each presentation, you’ll want to make sure you arrive early for this fun and exiting portion of SIGGRAPH!

We are also excited to introduce James McCrae to our Toronto crowd. A Toronto native, James received his Ph.D. from the Dynamic Graphics Project in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. A dynamic entrepreneur, James will be presenting two of his current projects:

  1. flatfab, developed as part of James’ Ph.D. work, is a software package that helps you design and fabricate 3D objects. We imagine in 3D but ideate and draw in 2D. flatfab seamlessly does both!
  2. Having also delved into immersive technologies, James brings us Janus VR: a web browsing platform for converting any HTML page into an immersive experience. Designed for the Oculus Rift, Janus VR can also show enhanced 3D content with specially-crafted HTML code. We dare you to step through this navigation portal!!
