Microsoft just launched its Canva-killer 🤖😋🧠
Good morning, welcome back to Bot Eat Brain. The ai-newsletter that makes you feel like walking into Grandma's house with a pie in the oven.
Here's what's coming up:
- Render AI brings the power of Stable Diffusion into Blender 🍳
- OpenAI teams up with Microsoft to ship a Canva-killer 👰🏻
- Some cool demos mixing AR & AI 🤝
- Today's featured art 🎨
Today's Vibe: but will it blend?
Let's jump right in 🦘
Bringing the power of Stable Diffusion into Blender with Render AI
Blender is a powerful free software tool for creating 3d-models, visual effects, and animation. Basically, if it's 3D it was probably made using Blender or a tool like it.
It takes a huge amount of effort to create realistic 3D models. Or at least, it did.
Enter: Render AI.
This Blender plug-in brings the power of stable diffusion into the Blender platform, allowing users to generate 3D models based on a text prompt and fine-tune that mode in Blender.
Now, instead of painstakingly detailing every vein in a leaf, you can create a low-resolution version and ask stable-diffusion to finish the rest.
Best of all, you don't need to code, and you don't even need to know how to use Google Collab.

OpenAI + Microsoft = Microsoft Design 🖌️
Microsoft joins the image generation game in a new partnership with the creators of Dall•E, Open AI.
Microsoft Design promises to be an AI-powered Canva-killer.
This new marriage will give birth to the power of AI creating images combined with an EASY interface to create them and combine them with other tools designers need.

💸 It will be obligatory for all designers and advertising agencies to get used to AI-powered tools. AI-tools make work easier and cheaper, stragglers will get left behind.
🥊 Canva is likely to ship a response to this trend sooner than later. Don't expect them to go down without a fight.
Quick Bites 🍪
Three magical demos from the intersection of Augmented-Reality and Artificial Intelligence.
#1 AI meets AR in the palm of your hand ✨
Everything is changing.
Playing with combinations of #AI and #AR again. This time I am using the Target tracker in SparkAR, Stable Diffusion for generating images and Frame Interpolation ML for making animation.
