This Looks Like Fun

"Lost In Austen" is a new British sci-fi drama from ITV that has a modern day woman transported into Pride & Prejudice.

From this video, it looks like it could be quite good. Hopefully, the torrents will be kind to me :-).

Thanks to io9.

This is a pretty amazing video. The "person" being interviewed is synthetically constructed, using a number of images taken of a real human being to generate all of the facial expressions.

It was created by a company called Image Metrics, who are the people behind the animations in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Update: I've replaced the original YouTube video, which seemed to have some kind of glitch partway through. This seems to be a superset of the old one.

Thanks to io9.

Mushroom Time Lapse

Wow, it feels like it's been a month since I last blogged ... oh, it has :-).

Anyway, here's a nice time-lapse video of mushrooms growing.

Thanks to Random Good Stuff.
