Animation Research Could Offer Unparalleled Control of Characters Without Skeletons

hgImage.php.jpg

Computer-generated characters have become so lifelike in appearance and movement that the line separating reality is almost imperceptible at times. But while bipeds and quadrupeds have reigned supreme in CG animation, attempts to create and control their skeleton-free cousins using similar techniques has proved time-consuming and laborious. Georgia Tech researchers have found a possible solution to this challenge by developing a way to simulate and control movement of computer-generated characters without a skeletal structure.

Cell Phone Financial Identity Theft

While the cell phone is an amazingly useful device, using it for banking — and consumers are increasingly using mobile phones as banking tools — can lead to identity theft and other financial crimes, if reasonable precautions aren’t taken. “Anyone who has access to your cell phone has access to your identity in a few clicks,” says Elizabeth Baker, an assistant professor at Wake Forest University and an expert in information system security issues.
