We propose a complete process for designing, simulating, and fabricating synthetic skin for an animatronics character that mimics the face of a given subject and its expressions. The process starts with measuring the elastic properties of a material used to manufacture synthetic soft tissue. Given these measurements we use physics-based simulation to(More)
We present a method for practical physical reproduction and design of homogeneous materials with desired subsurface scattering. Our process uses a collection of different pigments that can be suspended in a clear base material. Our goal is to determine pigment concentrations that best reproduce the appearance and subsurface scattering of a given target(More)
Activating mutations within the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) kinase domain, commonly L858R or deletions within exon 19, increase EGFR-driven cell proliferation and survival and are correlated with impressive responses to the EGFR inhibitors erlotinib and gefitinib in nonsmall cell lung cancer patients. Approximately 60% of acquired resistance to(More)
Some characteristics of nine recently developed or historically significant languages are discussed. Abstraction capabilities of the languages are noted in particular. Some characteristics of the languages are displayed in tabular form and others are presented in a separate discussion for each language. A hash coded string table program is written in each(More)
Guanine nucleotides have been predicted to be NMDA antagonists in tissue binding studies. Using the patch-clamp technique, we now show that the guanine nucleotide GDP beta S produces a rapidly reversible antagonism of NMDA, kainate, and, less potently, quisqualate whole-cell current responses. Furthermore, it does not appear that this antagonism is effected(More)
The key to the development of adaptive gameplay is the capability to monitor and predict in real time the players experience (or, herein, fun factor). To achieve this goal, we rely on biometrics and machine learning algorithms to capture a physiological signature that reflects the player's affective state during the game. In this paper, we report research(More)
