Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book is a timely anthology of ongoing research reports from more than 60 entertainment computing laboratories around the globe. . An anthropologist looking back on this ICEC 2006 volume will find a practical survey of adiabatic synthesis from the theoretical expectations of development specialists and cutting-edge product creators. This is a collective expression of those technical features that today's researchers personally would like incorporated into their favorite entertainment products . ."
