Inspired by SIGGRAPH Asia 2011's popular Symposium on Apps, this new program presents the latest advances in mobile technologies.
In just a few years, smartphones, tablets, and handheld game devices have evolved beyond text, voice, music, news, and simple contests. Now, they combine serious graphics hardware with very cool software, good cameras, full-color screens, and high-resolution sensors that deliver precision space-time data everywhere in the world.
The computer in your pocket or purse or lightweight bag is more powerful than the IRIS Indigo (code name: Hollywood) high-end SGI workstation introduced at SIGGRAPH 91. The Indigo looked like a large roll-on suitcase. The entry-level price was $US 8,000.
What's next? In talks, workshops, and demonstrations, SIGGRAPH Mobile explores what's possible, and when, for computers that can remain in their bags at security checkpoints.
