Construct3D: Sculptures in virtual reality

I saw a talk by a man who makes real sculptures — but he doesn’t even make it with his hands! He makes it with his head. He puts on virtual reality goggles — or some sort of headgear — and then he sculptures a virtual sculpture! In the talk I saw, he made a sculpture of two little kids — one his own, one the kid of a friend — sitting together.

His name is McArthur Freeman (his name is cool, too). After he makes the sculpture in virtual reality, he transfers it to a computer, and then he’s able to make real-life molds of them. So interesting!

This was also at the Construct3D conference at Rice.
