The Fan-Tasy Entertainer

    2010 was the 7th year of the Fan-Tasy Lab. To remember the great job done by our alumni and the great joy we’ve shared in the past 6 years, we collected some of our experimental data and compiled them into a short video-“The Fan-Tasy Entertainer” along the music “The Entertainer” composed by Scott Joplin. Hope the fantastic video entertains you.
