Rick and Morty Season 4 Premiere Smashes the Reset Button

The last half-decade has seen a renaissance of sorts in animated, adult-oriented TV comedies. New series like Rick and Morty, Big Mouth, Tuca and Bertie, and he was even repentant. In the season three finale, The Rickchurian Mortydate, the Smith family (Ricks daughter Beth, her husband Jerry, and their kids Summer and Morty) reunited, promising a fresh start for each other and the show. (In many ways, things will be like season one but more streamlined, Beth says brightly in the episodes final scene.) The season four premiere, Edge of Tomorty: Rick, Die, Rickpeat, arrives more than two years later but stays true to Beths word. In ways both refreshing and disappointing, it is indeed a throwback to a simpler …

This Real-Time Visual Shows How Slow Light Travels in the Vastness of Space

In this brilliant real-time visualization, we start with our planet to grasp just how fast light travels (300,000 km per second/186,000 miles per second). However, things quickly get mind-boggling when we use nearby objects in space like the moon, mars, and sun. The visualization was created by Dr. James O’Donoghue who is a Planetary Scientist at the Japanese Space Agency, JAXA. Before that, the good doc worked at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. I love how elegantly a simple visualization can explain concepts like these. Original Article : HERE ; The Ultimate Survival Food: The Lost Ways

My 30 Comics About Little Observations In Daily Life

I’m Sarah, a freelance Storyboard Artist from Switzerland and I draw comics about day to day life in my spare time. I draw them after work and choose the topics spontaneously. They’re mostly about something I encountered that day, little observations from life, a funny situation, or how I’m feeling at the moment. There’s always a true element in the stories, but I usually tweak reality a bit (or a lot) to make it entertaining – I don’t know what my cat really thinks. 20 reply #2 6 reply #4 15 reply #6 7 reply #8 6 reply #10 8 reply #12 14 reply #14 #15 11 reply 13 reply View More Replies… #18 5 reply 3 reply 3 reply …

This Crazy Tech Can Turn Anybody in a Photo Into a Moving Animation

Photo Wake-Up is a research project by Chung-Yi Weng, Brian Curless, and Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman of the University of Washington. Per their paper’s abstract: We present a method and application for animating a human subject from a single photo. E.g., the character can walk out, run, sit, or jump in 3D. The key contributions of this paper are: 1) an application of viewing and animating humans in single photos in 3D, 2) a novel 2D warping method to deform a posable template body model to fit the person’s complex silhouette to create an animatable mesh, and 3) a method for handling partial self occlusions. We compare to state-of-the-art related methods and evaluate results with human studies. Further, we present an interactive …
