Escher for Real

Escher for Real: Nevertheless, it may come as a surprise for some, but many of the so-called 'impossible' drawings of M.C. Escher can be realized as actual physical objects. These objects will resemble the Escher's drawing, of the same name, from a certain viewing direction. This work below presents some of these three-dimensional models that were designed and built using geometric modeling and computer graphics tools.

The Lord of the Ring Trilogy With Special Extended DVD Editions = 12/14/2004

| |

From The Digital Bits for 9/28/2004:

"We certainly expected this... New Line has announced that the 4-disc Special Extended DVD Editions of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King will all be available in a single box set on 12/14 (SRP $119.97). So if you haven't gotten them yet, here's the perfect chance. Basically, the three separate 4-disc sets will be packaged together in a new outer slipcase. There's nothing new in this release - no exclusive bonus discs or anything. This is just a way to sell all the Extended Editions in one package for those who may wish to purchase them that way."

The Living Room Candidate

| |

/.'s story talks about The Living Room Candidate that is an exhibition that maintains a comprehensive and detailed collection of over 300 commercials from the past fourteen elections (1952-2000).

It is interesting to see those old TV commercial ads, especially from 1952.
