Scientists have come up with a way to make whole brains transparent, so they can be labelled with molecular markers and imaged using a light microscope. The technique, called CLARITY, enabled its creators to produce the detailed 3D visualisations you see in this video. It works in mouse brains and human brains; here the team use it to look into the brain of a 7-year-old boy who had autism.

You are alive today. You were alive yesterday. You were alive the day before that. This is good news from a survival perspective. Unfortunately it is bad news from an innovation perspective.
Lukas Vojir is a designer from Prague who is now doing some pretty cool work in London. Focusing on his love affair between art direction, motion graphics and Cinema 4D, he’s producing some beautifully satirical work.
Kyle Cooper, the acclaimed title designer, art director and filmmaker discusses typography, his love for the imperfection of handmade things, and his main titles for Darkness Falls, Se7en and Spiderman 2.
In Part 2, Cooper discusses “integrated typography” and three classic main titles that made a big impression on him: ‘The Dead Zone’ by Wayne Fitzgerald, ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ by Stephen Frankfurt and ‘Walk On The Wild Side’ by Saul Bass.
Robert Hodgin’s “Aphex Twin NYE Show Visuals”: “Surprisingly, I received an email a short while later from WeirdCore who was in the process of working on live visuals for Aphex Twin’s new years eve show in Rome. He had shown some of the videos to Aphex and they were positively received.
I ended up creating a Cinder app that had 10 preset modes and various parameter controls that WeirdCore could interact with in realtime during the show. The modes ranged from simple 3D point clouds to variations of Body Dysmorphia.
WeirdCore did a fantastic job integrating the Kinect content with the other feeds consisting of visuals created with QC, MaxMSP/Jitter, VDMX, and v002. Here is some footage of the last bit of his set.“
Corning’s view of the future – screens, mirrors and assorted UI (but hopefully, not music).
