The sensors we carry every day will design future digital worlds for our virtual selves.

Have you ever used Waze, the famous crowdsourced navigation app? When driving down a road that the app does not recognise, you are teaching it that a new street must be added. In a similar way, the sensors we carry every day in our smartphones and fitness gadgets could not just map the world but be used for creating a virtual copy, quicker and cheaper than anything we have today.

Our SIGGRAPH paper on Gaussian Material Synthesis is featured in the SIGGRAPH 2018 Technical Papers Trailer (at the 45 second mark)! Watch it on Youtube
