Dentsu have just delivered a wonderful presentation on creativity.
However the highlight for me was this ridiculous yet brilliant smart-wallet.
I know what I’m asking Santa for!
This incredible concept app… concappt, is the amazing brainchild of Greg Goralski. It uses computer vision to turn initial scamps into interactive wireframes with functional buttons, maps and other features.
This could be a quick and amazing tool to bring ideas to life before they even get to see dev or design.
I think this is an amazing idea that could really help the realisation of ideas as well as the initial sell. However, they still need your help. The project is still looking for backers through KickStarter. So what are you waiting for!
I like Turtles!
… So you can imagine how chuffed I was to discover this:
It turns out there is even more. Not only have they taken their 3D Google cams underwater but they are also running hangouts from the watery depths:
Their next under water web chat is taken place tonight (yes… night). You can keep abreast of all the upcoming action here.
This is just brilliant!
No Place Like Home
As much as I’ve heard people bang on about 3D printing, nothing has quite hit home like this inspirational video from Shapeways.
What is the future of creativity, manufacturing, and design? How is the Shapeways community and 3D printing enabling everyone to make their ideas real?
This film portrays how the Shapeways 3D printing community and marketplace is enabling everyone to be a creator. All you need is an idea and an Internet connection.
Weiden + Kennedy have consistently delivered awesome ads for the nearly defunct mens grooming brand, Old Spice. Since Isaiah Mustafa first exploded onto a horse and onto our screens in 2010, Old spice has experienced continuing commercial success (yes, we’re ignoring Fabio). The latest Old Spice manly manifestation, Terry Crews, has just released Vimeo’s first (as far as I know) interactive music video!
Watch carefully as Terry manipulates the instruments with his rippling muscular physique. Did you enjoy that? Well now it’s your turn. Hit (nearly) any key on your keyboard to smash cymbals, blow flaming saxophones and drop strings of sausages .
Watch me jam solo, then use the special interactive player to record your own remix. Go ahead, show me what you got!
