A couple of students at the Ilmenau University of Technology in Germany are developing the video equivalent of the Content-Aware Fill feature in Photoshop CS5. In other words, their software can make objects invisible, and it does this in real-time.
Swedish artist Erik Johansson has both delighted and disappointed me today. His digital art and image manipulation is top notch, and anything influenced by Tetris is of course awesome. But as great as this piece is, it’s terribly sad, because I cannot play giant Tetris.
This is just begging for someone to make a flash game for this concept: using a crane to manipulate giant tetrominoes in order to build something.
