Title: ENCODED ILLUSTRATIONS
Abstract:
Disclosed herein is a method for encoding an illustration on a target surface, where the illustration may be visible when light is shone on the surface from a light source with a predetermined position. The method may include: converting the illustration into a grayscale illustration; specifying the position of the light source; generating a three dimensional surface having a grid of smaller surfaces thereon, where each smaller surface may represent a corresponding pixel of the grayscale illustration. Each smaller surface may be oriented with respect to the light source such that reflected light from each smaller surface has a reflection intensity equal to the light intensity of the corresponding pixel of the greyscale illustration; and making the target surface out of a material using the generated three dimensional surface as a template.
