Glad to see that science is hard at work thinking up new and exciting ways to paint tacky porcelain animal figurines.

Ahh, another use of the kinect that has nothing to do with what Microsoft expected it to be used for!

So, how long before we get affordable home versions? (still waiting on the affordable 3D printers, by the way)
Affordable as in pick up one in an "As SEEN on TV" box at your local walmart?

I'm not sure whether to applaud them for using an analog computer to do the heavy lifting or laugh at them. Either way it's a bit of a punt for the computational sciences dept, don't you think?
Where in the paper/presentation do they say it's an analog computer? I skimmed the paper and I just saw that they were using a simplified/limited version of Navier-Stokes, which I suppose could be done easily enough on an analog computer but there's nothing particularly compelling about doing it that way AFAIK (and the word "analog" never turns up in the paper anyway).
Or are you referring to the actual dipping rig?
Well I didn't read the paper, and probably should have. I just assumed they were using the dipping tank to read the distortion off the dipped object. As you say, it is in fact a computational technique. So bully for them.
At 4:32, they faithfully recreate a huffer.
-1 because they didn't make something with an actual checkerboard pattern.
