I was looking for some good Material System designs in teh interwebz and I stumbled upon this one article by Maxime Beaudoin. Quote from ShaderX6 book:
Unfortunately, I don’t have a copy of ShaderX6 book nor I can download one from the internet. But I found a ppt presentation that he made for GDC 2008.
P.S. Something I found really2x cool.
Back of the Mike (1938)
Back of the Mike is a short film done in 1937 for the Chevrolet Motor Company depicting the behind the scenes look at the making of a Western radio show. This documentary shows the various ways sound effects are created during the broadcast. Rain was created by pouring sand over a spinning potters wheel which sent it down a metal funnel onto a microphone which was covered by a paper bag. Fire was created by wadding up plastic wrap close to the mike.
