Alias R&D

I came across an old Alias|Wavefront promotional CD that covered their research from 1995-2000. Quite a lot has made it into products (such as fluid effects and paint effects) but theres a lot of quite out there stuff, particularly some ingenious use of "tape-drawing" systems nabbed from car designers and some great two handed input methods. Unfortunately there doesnt seem to be much on the alias site anymore, but the chief scientist at the time (who has now left) has his own site, so go check out Bill Buxton.
