  Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, April 12th from 7:00 pm
  to 9:00 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church.

  Bob Coyne, entrepeneur and old-school Lisp developer will be presenting
  a special lisp-eyes-only preview of WordsEye.  It is the culmination of
  years of work and highlights the technology that he developed.  It is,
  of course, written in Lisp.

      WordsEye: Creating 3D scenes from textual descriptions
          
      WordsEye   allows  untrained   users   to  spontaneously   and
      interactively create  3D scenes by simply  describing them. By
      using natural  language, ordinary users can  quickly create 3D
      scenes  without  having  to  learn special  software,  acquire
      artistic  skills,  or  even  touch a  desktop  window-oriented
      interface.   Creating graphics with  natural language  gives a
      new  sense of  power  to words  and  suggests applications  in
      education and creative play as  well as the creation of visual
      art itself. WordsEye  relies on a large database  of 3D models
      and images  to depict objects and  surface textures.  WordsEye
      is written in Common Lisp and runs on Linux.
