Science of Chocolate on KQED

on

You can get a look at our Virtual Factory and some of our molecular dynamics animations on “The Science of Chocolate” which is showing tomorrow night on Channel 9 (in the Bay Area) as part of the KQED Quest series. The story is focused on the hows and whys of chocolate making, not on our Virtual Factory project, but it’s still fun to see some of our work on the air.

All these 3D models and animations were created by FXPAL’s resident Art Guy, Tony Dunnigan, with Sagar Gattepally handling the virtual world construction; the video embedded in-world was shot by John Doherty.

The show is on tomorrow night, June 2nd at 7:30PM on KQED, Channel 9; and will also commence streaming on the KQED web site as of tomorrow.

UPDATE: oops, this show was pre-empted for pledge programming! This Quest segment is re-scheduled for June 16 at 7:30 PM.
