Pixar’s “Monsters University” Inspired by Cal

berkeleybyte:

Concept art for Pixar’s film “Monsters University,” scheduled for release in June 2013, recently surfaced on the web, and hints of Berkeley seep throughout the drawings.  As The Daily Cal reported last September, Pixar visited Cal and other universities, such as Harvard and MIT, for inspiration and research.

Traveling to different places for inspiration and to help build the world in its films is nothing new for Pixar.  For “Brave,” the research team visited Scotland; for “Up,” they journeyed to Venezuela; and for “Ratatouille,” they made a voyage to Paris.  A quite adventurous job, don’t you think?

See if you can spot the similarities between Monsters University and Berkeley below!

See the resemblance?

The Pixar team has also explored close to home, as Carl and Russell from “Up,” go to Fenton’s Creamery (cp. Oakland); and the “Up” house was inspired by houses in the Oakland/Berkeley neighborhoods.

Excited to spot out more local references when “Monsters University” comes out next summer!

woo Berkeley!

LMAO is that what you really did? The paths make you look like you were lost.

No no no… if you were to see the rest of the pages, you’d see that I stopped by McDonalds, the stadium, south side asian ghetto (a buncha student-friendly restaurants for non-berkeley folks), went back to the stadium for Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s talk, then up in the north side for another commencement before leaving town via BART…

yeah I didn’t do all of this in one go, @dtien. ahem.

Damn. Don’t think I’ve ever walked this much in Berk.

Every year the graduates in the honor society of my major (EECS, as mentioned in a previous post) puts up a slogan at the engineering commencement as a tradition.

They went with “EECSY & WE KNOW IT” for 2012.

Very nice. But I still think mine - “WE WE WE SO EECSITED” is better… #rebeccablack #justsaying

In signal processing, there is a very important way of combining two signals called convolution.  [The german word for convolution is Faltung which means folding.]  Here we start by convolving a square signal with another.  One square is slid across from left to right, and we look at how much area there is under the two shapes (coloured in red). The thick black line measures how big this area is, and that ends up being the convolution. Next we convolve the convolution with another square and keep going.  Note how this makes the curve smoother and smoother, and it is actually turning it into a Bell Curve, or Gaussian.  Can anyone explain why this might be, and hence an interesting link between signal processing and probability theory? [more] [code]

Yay EE20/120.
I remember the professor always bagging people for using the verb ‘convolute’ falsely over ‘convolve’…

Student Falls From Unit 2 Dorm Window

Condolences to his friends and family. Not sure if it’s because of this time of the year, but life is worth so much more than just finals.
