The Embedded World Fair in Nürnberg, Germany, is one of the largest events in Europe for embedded systems. This year, several Blender Open Movie productions were spotted by an anonymous reporter.
Here’s another impressive example of the power of open content: Janus Kristensen has converted Big Buck Bunny to a 4K, 3D, 60FPS version, and rendered everything on BURP, the online rendering platform.

This one has been flooding our inbox: the webpage for Google’s new Nexus S Phone shows the Big Buck Bunny trailer to illustrate the ‘Entertainment on the Go’ section.
The HTML5 specification offers some nifty new possibilities for video manipulation. This is probably amazingly boring for most people here, but here’s a cool example: Blow up Big Buck Bunny in your browser! (You’ll need a modern browser to be able to see this).
The Story will be based of the BBB movie. The squirrel is possessive, and wants to get rid off all other animals from the forest by making traps to get rid of his first arch enemy, The Bird, who doesn’t care about what the squirrel think and get on with his daily life.
