This year we (Beautypi) were really fortunate to be able to speak at the GPU Technology Conference organized by NVIDIA in San Jose, CA. For this conference we put together a new talk related to Shadertoy, our talk focused on what people have done in our website over the last year.

The talk was called “Shadertoy : Do You Know What a Fragment Shader Can Do?“. Here is the abstract of our presentation.

[…] we are going to walk the audience through Shadertoy and some of the most innovative, artistic and creative GPU algorithms that our community has been developing over the last 6 months. This includes shaders employing raymarching, procedural texturing, modeling and animation, fractal geometry, image compression and volumetric rendering.

Watch the full talk here:
