Explore the Latest Computing Research on Your Phone
Tags: ACM, Mobile Applications, Research

According to the market research site AppData, the three most popular mobile applications at the time of this article's publication are: "Candy Crush," "Farm Heroes" and "Pet Rescue."

Though there's nothing wrong with passing the time lining up shapes and colors on a digital game board, computing professionals might be interested to know that there's a new -- and somewhat more stimulating -- alternative for mobile diversion: the ACM Digital Library app.

Advances in Achieving Photoreal Digital Actors (Video)
Tags: Modeling, Research, Technology

Somewhere between "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within" (2001) and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008), digital actors evolved from talking dolls to lifelike human beings. Today, computer-generated actors are often so realistic that audiences have trouble distinguishing live performers from digital fabrications. How did such a monumental improvement in the realism of CG humans happen over such a short period of time?

Spotlight on Innovation: Expressive Eyes for Interactive Characters
Tags: Emerging Technology, Innovation, Research

The eyes are the windows to the soul, or so goes the proverb. As humans, we use our eyes to express a wide variety of emotions, often without even realizing we’re doing so. Animators spend years studying eye movements to help them create characters with a range of believable expressions, but the eyes of robots and interactive toys are far more difficult to manipulate than those of cartoon characters.
