I just read "Body of Evidence," the article on forensic animation on pg. 48 of the March 2001 issue, and I was much impressed. As an aspiring animator, this piece caught my attention because of its focus on a very specialized genre within my field. I plan to research it further.
I enjoyed the volume rendering article "Atomic Vision" on pg. 15 of your March 2001 issue. Now that your readers have an idea of how atoms and particles may look, they might be interested in what we have built here in my lab in Spring Hill, Florida. It's called the VBGD (Video Beta/Gamma Detector) and it shows the flights of charged subatomic particles on a NTSC monitor in real time. For more information, go to ftp://www.ij.net/lazerbolt/VBGDdetector and consult the readme.doc.
