Visualizing 3D Formulas in AR

Walk Around 1940’s NYC

1940s.nyc allows you to look at a street view of what NYC was like 80 years ago. In 1939, the Works Progress Administration and the NYC Tax Department teamed up to take a photo of every building in NYC. The results are pretty great!

Interview with my ARtifical Self

Last week, I thought it would be neat to see if I could have a real-time conversation with GPT3 using an ARKit version of myself. The project was a success, and definitely got me excited about a Her sequel! N_AR_cissus, perhaps?


That’s all for this week!
