SIGGRAPH 2012 concludes, shows off future of interactivity

Unfortunately, I can’t make it to every event I want to go to and that includes this year’s SIGGRAPH conference, where computer graphics and interactive scientists, engineers and artists gathered for the 39th international conference in Los Angeles.

The conference featured advancements in haptics, or technology that leverages human touch. The conference featured innovations that applied the technology to plants and powered augmented reality. The conference is a wonderland of emerging technologies, and I’m bummed to have missed it.

If you had a chance to go, let me know in the comments. I’d love to know what you thought of the event.
