Walt Disney’s Pixar division was at Siggraph again and here we see a gallery of their famous tea pot collection.

Epson was giving a presentation of Moverio at Siggraph, which Mashable described as Google Glass on steriods. This is AR tech, that is augmented reality glasses which we should probably be keeping in eye on…no pun intended.

Unity 5 is the focus at Unity Technologies and the company is getting ready for its big Unite 2015 Boston user conference coming later next month (September 21-23).

Unity is the game engine involved in a neat software that straddles both the game production world and the world of professional golf course design (some say golf course architecture) that Architosh is working on as a feature story coming up soon, we hope! What we are seeing with Unity is that the program is more diverse for pro uses than we originally believed and we are keen to stay on top of such developments.

AMD’s latest graphics card wonder machine is the R9 Fury X GPU, which features HBM (high-bandwidth memory) something AMD pioneered. HBM offers 3x the bandwidth per watt over GDDR5 memory, along with a 4096-bit memory interface. These cards are also liquid cooled. The Radeon R9 380 and 390 can deliver top gameplay on 4K monitors and support DirectX 12. Apparently, AMD also had one of the new Mac Pros in its booth as well, demoing some pro apps.

12 - Pixar Arts and Science Fair at Siggraph 2015.
