How to Turn the Page
Found in: Digital Libraries, Joint Conference on
By Yi-Chun Chu, Ian H. Witten, Richard Lobb, David Bainbridge
Issue Date:May 2003
pp. 186
Can digital libraries provide a reading experience that more closely resembles a real book than a scrolled or paginated electronic display? This paper describes a prototype page-turning system that realistically animates full three-dimensional page-turns. ...
A Fluid-Based Soft-Object Model
Found in: IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications
By Daniel Nixon, Richard Lobb
Issue Date:July 2002
pp. 68-75
<p>Soft objects are those everyday objects that deform significantly in response to their normal environment. Examples include cushions, plasticine and balloons filled with treacle. We present a new physically based model for animating soft objects. ...
Evolving controllers for virtual creature locomotion
Found in: Proceedings of the 1st international conference on Computer graphics and interactive techniques in Austalasia and South East Asia (GRAPHITE '03)
By Michael Sanders, Patricia Riddle, Richard Lobb
Issue Date:February 2003
pp. 255-256
We consider the application of Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) to the problem of automating the locomotion of computer-simulated creatures. We introduce niching as a way of maintaining genetic diversity and show that it results in the generation of a range o...
