The math behind the movies: An interview with Tony DeRose of Pixar

TED Blog

Tony DeRose captivated the audience at TEDYouth, sharing how mathematics makes Pixar characters look so life-like. Photo: Ryan Lash Tony DeRose captivated the young audience at TEDYouth, talking about how mathematics makes Pixar characters look so real. Photo: Ryan Lash

Pixar films are known for their thoughtful storytelling and groundbreaking animation. One of the coolest things about these movies: the math that Pixar’s team is actually inventing to improve the audience experience and the look of the characters. We caught up with Pixar’s Research Lead, Tony DeRose—who gave the TED-Ed Lesson, “The math behind the movies,” about how arithmetic, trigonometry and geometry helped bring Woody and the rest of your favorite characters to life—to hear more. Bonus: we got to hear about his own progression from building model rockets to creating Oscar-winning characters.

What got you interested in mathematics as a kid?

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t interested in science, but my interest in mathematics really began when I was in 7th grade. I was into building model…

Server Change for pretemoiparis.com

Prête-Moi Paris

PreteMoiParis Hello all! As I warned … my server has been changed from WordPress to a different French company who is high up on the list of largest hosters in the world (3rd or 4th Chéri tells me) that provides servers and domain hosting.

I will still have the WordPress platform (that OVH kindly supports) so the functionality of the blog will not change. You will still be able to like and comment just as usual. My site : pretemoiparis.com will no longer appear on WordPress.com servers though and you will only get pretemoiparis.wordpress.com if you come here looking for me. This also means, new posts will not be uploaded here on WordPress. This ONE is the LAST one you will see on the WordPress server site. Most of you probably won’t notice though, since you are all pretty much used to heading to pretemoiparis.com for the past few years now.

DNA shows ancient hunter had blue eyes, dark skin

 

BERLIN – A hunter-gatherer who lived in Europe some 7,000 years ago probably had blue eyes and dark skin, a combination that has largely disappeared from the continent in the millennia since, scientists said Tuesday.

The discovery, published in the journal Nature this week, was made by scientists from the United States, Europe and Australia who analyzed ancient DNA extracted from a male tooth found in a cave in northern Spain.

“We have the stereotype that blue eyes are found only in light-skinned people but that’s not necessarily the case,” lead researcher Carles Lalueza-Fox said in a telephone interview Tuesday with The Associated Press.
