GANcraft: Unsupervised 3D Neural Rendering of Minecraft Worlds
Whoa, this is really awesome! Check out more about GANcraft here.
We present GANcraft, an unsupervised neural rendering framework for generating photorealistic images of large 3D block worlds such as those created in Minecraft. Our method takes a semantic block world as input, where each block is assigned a label such as dirt, grass, tree, sand, or water. We represent the world as a continuous volumetric function and train our model to render view-consistent photorealistic images from arbitrary viewpoints, in the absence of paired ground truth real images for the block world. In addition to camera pose, GANcraft allows user control over both scene semantics and style.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
