Tomek Baginski

This guy has done some of the most amazing 3D animation and modeling I’ve ever seen. His themes are always dark and mysterious often touching on Polish history and current politics. This first flick won him the BAFTA Award for Best Short Animation in 2004.

This next video won him an oscar nomination in the category “short films” in 2002.

‘Mind Gaming’ Could Enter Market This Year

Saw this on slashdot today, and I instantly thought of Tom and his occasional mention of how he’s gonna build a “mindball” table and take over the world.

Emotiv, a company based in San Francisco, says its mind-control headsets will be on shelves later this year, along with a host of novel “biofeedback” games developed by its partners.” They even have a mention of “mindball” at the bottom.

While I think this sounds interesting, I also think a gaming society used to mashing buttons will be slow to adopt something so different and much more prone to “failure”.
