Fun with 3D

PyMol is my favorite program for protein structure visualization. It is Free Software, and I just saw a video about how some people from the University of Toronto have used PyMol to make a module to implement "Head tracking" for giving a 3D feel to looking at the proteins.

The video doesn't give such a great impression of how it will be. But it is really nifty if the head-tracking-by-webcam works.

Here is another video that gives a great impression of how head-tracking (by Wii-mote) works.

Quote of the day

“I’ve reluctantly discarded the notion of my continuing to manage the portfolio after my death—abandoning my hope to give new meaning to the term ‘thinking outside the box.’”
