Last Week in 5 Links #86

by | Aug 25, 2021 | FiveLinks

In this week selection, we have Boston Dynamics, Ghost of Tsushima, Amiga 500, chicken recipes and polygonal lights, all handpicked by Laszlo Nemet.

Boston Dynamics – Inside the Lab

Last week we shared a video link about Atlas, Boston Dynamics’ humanoid robot. This one is different as it gives us a glimpse into their lab, what happens behind the perfectly choreographed videos they share. I loved the imperfect Atlas and the parts with the technicians’ involvement. Their role is often ignored, unfortunately.

Ghost of Tsushima – Director’s Cut

I’m not really into the role-playing genre, but this game bought me. It is beautiful, and I can tell that how much care the game received from the developers. I will definitely try it in the future.

Amiga 500 Mini

My childhood’s favourite platform. When I read this, I got nostalgic. Yes, you can use an emulator on your PC, but this is different. I disagree with the game choices (it comes with 25 games), but I found some I loved.


Chicken Recipes

Someone dropped this video to our cooking channel, and I made the mistake of watching it when I was hungry. All the recipes in the video are excellent and they all look delicious. Watch the video. I hope you are hungry too 😉

Polygonal Lights

A short article about BRDF (bidirectional reflectance distribution function) Importance Sampling: it can be helpful if you are doing it without a game engine, for example.

This is a post in the Last Week in 5 Links series. We share a lot of interesting videos, articles and other types of content in our internal chat. We thought some of the info we come across could come in handy for others too. So each week we post five of the links we shared between ourselves in the previously selected by one of our team.

If you have any comments, ideas or personal experiences, feel free to share with us. We are curious to hear new ideas, solutions, and perspectives regarding the above. Don’t forget to follow us on our social media!
