Great news! Autodesk Research was awarded a Best Talk Award at the 2014 User Interface Software and Technology Syposium (UIST) for Kitty, a tool that makes it possible to draw interactive experiences.
The team was very happy to present their research throughout the week, as you can in the photos below:

Congratulations to the Kitty Team!
Afterwards, the team celebrates with an awesome display of their fire dancing skills (as a researcher it is important to have many varied interests and abilities)
Some members of the team enjoy simpler pursuits
Beyond the awards and activities, there was food. Team members who didn't get to attend UIST were sad to miss the fancy breakfasts this year.
At least one UIST attendee found a new use for Oculus - making food better :-)
