  1. It has been quite a while since Seinfeld last aired on television, but a developer has now produced a 3D model of Jerry's iconic apartment to be explored through an Oculus Rift VR headset.

    It looks like its made of cheesy 90s cgi...if its just a simple room id imagine it to be more photorealstic

    It was made with Blender and uses the Unity engine. Pretty cool for free software. That being said, I do a lot of stuff in Blender and you can get photorealistic results but the room has to be rendered at 60fps or so, so photorealism is out of the question no matter the software. No doubt you could render one photorealistic image but that would take many hours.

    If anyone is interested the author is looking for better textures and/or models.

    I didnt mean completely photo realistic, I meant more realistic. xD
    I mean a lot of that stuff looks textureless. the stools are solid colors, etc.

    Someone models the set form a 1990s sitcom and the first comment is how 90s the graphics are. I'd call that success from an unintended source.

    90s sitcom =/= 90s cgi

    Hey I remember that apartment, I still have a lot of those shows on VHS along with Cheers and a few others. I loved those shows. They don't make 'em like that anymore, pity.

  10. "It has been quite a while since Seinfeld last aired on television..." Nonsense. It's on (at least) Dish regularly.
