What if I could use my existing neural style transfer program to apply the style of my doppelgänger's painting onto my own photo?

My computer has a pretty powerful GPU in my custom water cooling loop, and because I'm generally too busy to play video games, this power is massively under-utilized outside my tinkering in VR. Even my experiments in deep learning run largely on the CPU (inefficient, b...

My parents live in a house with walls literally made of concrete and metal mesh, making each room effectively a faraday cage, AKA Wi-Fi hell. Walking as little as 20 feet between two rooms could completely cut off a signal. Even powerful routers were defeated by this a...

Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs, but in modern times this science has been focused particularly on generating 3D models of objects in the real world. Although most use cases of the technology are in generating 3D models of artifact...

I am a strong believer in the potential for VR, and as a result, decided to experiment with building experiences in VR. After building in both Unity and Unreal, I decided to focus most of my programming effort in Unity because of it's superior collection of free-for-us...

Unity is a game development platform that has become particularly important in virtual reality application development. As someone who is interested in VR, I thought it a good idea to better understand the engine and ecosystem, and what is a better way to understand so...

After experiencing virtual reality (VR) for the first time, my parents decided that they wanted a system of their own. However, rather than simply buying a pre-built system (usually over-priced and at bare-minimum spec) they asked me to build them a computer, but one t...

DeepStyle is a deep learning algorithm similar to Deep Dream based off the research paper "A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style". The algorithm learns the artistic style of a painter by building filters from features in their artwork, then applies those filters through...

Three of my friends and I created a team to enter a parody hackathon (media coverage here). We created a sterling-engine powered "social" fire alarm that would only activate when completely engulfed in flames (a large temperature differential is required to generate mo...

After recently watching one of the old Harry Potter movies, I became very interested in the Weasley family’s magically automated home, in particular, by their family clock, which displayed the location of the family members on a watch face under preset categories (home...
