Take part in Nvidia Sketch Match in booth #1101. Show off your skills by racing the clock in competition against other illustrators, animators, and designers. Futurist Syd Mead will appear in person at this year’s NVArt competition, the theme of which is “Accelerate”–futuristic transportation in the style of Syd Mead. Mead will stop by to sign free, limited-edition posters of his Sentinel 400 print in booth #1101 between 1 pm and 2 pm on Tuesday, July 27, and Wednesday, July 28. If you’re a fan of the man whose concept designs were used for films like Blade Runner, Aliens, 2010 and more, make sure you don’t miss out on this chance to rub shoulders with a legend. Take in the Nvidia Quadro Digital Theater (booth #725) if you are hungry to learn about the latest techniques and developments in graphics. You’ll find featured talks by industry luminaries and technology innovators, and get a chance to play around with some demos. If you're a developer, check out the Nvidia Developer Sessions (Room 402B), where you can learn about the latest and tools, techniques, and resources for programming GPUs. Sessions run all day, Wednesday, July 28, 2010, 9 am to 5 pm.
