Understanding that understanding and exploring their medium is not as easy as picking up a pencil. Unreal is looking to change this by launching its own online academy meant to bring such software and creative unleashing to the masses. The academy will have a collection of tutorials, lectures and sample files tied to architecture, industrial design, game development and visualization to name a few.
With more and more educational institutions embracing the visual and visceral adoration of such projects that comes from such technology and with a growing portion of such institutional leaders and educators unaware of how to use, teach and implement such software, having companies bridge the landscapes between creator and educator may be a sign of things to come — Continue reading "Epic Games unleashes Unreal with the Academy"

We’re always interested in easy ways to rev up living room decor. If you can only add one item to make a big impact in your space, an area rug is an excellent choice.

5 things to consider when choosing a new living room rug
Size: Make sure your rug is the right scale for your room.
Color: Your new rug looks best if it features at least two of your accent colors.
Comfort: Choose a rug you love, but it’s also important that it feels good underfoot.
Care: Check the cleaning and maintenance of any rug you are considering.
