Check out the awesomeness of 2014 Movies:
U just need to admit 3D is much more better, everybody agrees with me (8 pages later no one has agreed). 108% of russians prefer 3D. Also Americans prefer 3DTVs despite surveys showin it ranks behing screen size, resolution and apps in importance to 3DTV owners.
You can actually see the fringes due to diffraction on the inner and outer edge of -say- the sharp shadow projected by the corner of a house in a sunny day. And you can see the Airy discs of stars with optical telescopes where the opening is of course macroscopic when compared to the wavelength...
Let me throw a few numbers in :)
The first minimum in the light angular profile is given by the formula
d*sin(theta) = lambda
where d = size of the slit (let's say a tenth of a millimeter or 10E-4 m between my fingers), theta is the angle of the first minimum and lambda is the wavelength (let's say 500 nm= 5*10E-7 m ).
This gives us theta ~ sin(theta) = 5*10E-3.
It's a small angle, but it's the same order of magnitude or bigger than that d = 10E-4 m slit when seen from D = 10E-1 m (10cm) distance, which comes to d/D=10E-3. Thus I expect to see diffraction effects around that space.
Ray-tracing is going to be fun to play with. Still a long way to go before a sun lit pool looks realistic. Halocline effects should also be possible with ray-tracing. Liquids, gasses, sunlight, so far to go still to render true realistic visuals.
Hey there, and thanks again for participating in the Top 50 Games event! Tomorrow starts our descent into the top 10, where our most beloved games are placed (can't wait to see what they are!).
Just wanted to let you know that, if you want to, you may complete your lists in the Official Thread. I'm always looking for a way to easy my workload... so starting to tally your choices early would be nice!
You don't have to if you don't want to of course, as long as I have your complete list by December 31st! Whatever makes things easier for you works for me. Anyways, happy holidays and thanks again for celebrating your favorite games with the rest of us. Cheers. ^_^

I wonder why having a lot of choice bothers people so much... You don't have to drive every Nissan, Mazda or Honda. A Japanese game focusing on Japanese cars, how dare they....
I'm currently doing the night masters event. Night driving has been much improved, looks very good. Sliding my pos Honda around in the night, great fun....

Although i dont think its mobile platforms that are the demise of home consoles...but rather home consoles have become their own demise. Both PS4 and X1 can be seen as updated versions of...
