Nice extensive tutorial by French artist David Revoy -- on explaining calibration, how to set it up, how to test it, and how to change your configuration.
Wacom has announced the Cintiq Companion and Cintiq Companion Hybrid; the former being a tablet running Windows 8 combined with the capability of a 13" Cintiq pen display, and the latter running Android instead of the Windows 8. Sweet eh? Well, yes and no. No because the prices are as expectedly on the high end; Companion starting from $1999 - $2499, and the Hybrid going at $1499 - $1599. For that money, you could get a decent laptop and an Intuos and still call it a (mobile) day. But hey, people have money to burn and you can't really go wrong blowing money on well made things.
The Paper Fox is an interactive tale of adventure, filled with enchanting characters and brought to life in the stunning visual style of digital origami paper craft. You can download Paper Fox free on iTunes and check out an interview with Jeremy Kool from Torsion Fork Studio talking about the use of Unity and the process of putting the book together!
Autodesk has created a plugin that allows you to use the Leap Motion controller to work in Maya, without having to use the standard mouse/tablet and keyboard setup. The promo video looks interesting (could have demoed nicer eyecandy stuff like some dynamics or paintFX scene) but you gotta wonder just how realistically worthwhile it would be to even consider using the Leap controller to, oh say, do some detailed modeling or paint weights, do UVs... Arms might fall off in the process but hey, they will be some seriously toned arms!
Are you one of those people who hoard old hardware "just in case it can come of use", for nostalgic reasons and fond memories, or simply because you don't have the heart to throw out *beautiful* functional hardware? Here is a prime example of why you shouldn't toss out old hardware because you never know when a project like this can come about. While this mod is a bit dated, MacBane is still smoking hot (we could not envision a 14 year-old G4 PowerMac case looking this way). Supremely nice job by an anonymous Canuck out in British Columbia; and quite the badass name for the mod too.
A yet-to-be-release 32" monitor from Dell featuring 3840x2160 resolution, wide colour gamut with 1.07 billion colours and Dell UltraSharp Color Calibration Solution software that allows you to have total colour control. Dell is looking to release this in the later part of 2013.
