I’m not sure how concept this project actually is, but…
Well. You better take a look:
A lot more to be seen and said at the amazing Design Taxi.
I am still amazed by this little kids ability to think that far ahead.
Leap represents an entirely new way to interact with your computers. It’s more accurate than a mouse, as reliable as a keyboard and more sensitive than a touchscreen. For the first time, you can control a computer in three dimensions with your natural hand and finger movements.
This isn’t a game system that roughly maps your hand movements. The Leap technology is 200 times more accurate than anything else on the market — at any price point. Just about the size of a flash drive, the Leap can distinguish your individual fingers and track your movements down to a 1/100th of a millimeter.
This is like day one of the mouse. Except, no one needs an instruction manual for their hands.
Y’all know how I just lurve Robots…
Well here’s the latest release from a company called Weyland Industries:
This is the second viral we’ve seen for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien prequel, Prometheus. I would really like to believe in these viral and delve deeper into the franchise whilst imagining I was living a future in which Weyland was real but unfortunately those responsible manage to thwart me at every step, plastering each piece of communication with words to the devastating effect of – ‘This is just an add for a fictional film, do not suspend your disbelief!’ or alternatively ‘Prometheus Viral’.
Just for one moment let me get lost in space (oh no… that was a different franchise entirely).
Enhance 34 to 46…
OK, I can resist it no longer; here’s Super Troopers homage to Deckard:
I really hope that enhanced your viewing pleasure.
This week some great things have already been brought to my attention by the ever unearthing HelloKinsella.
As we all know AR may be getting so, as Stevie Wonder would describe, yester-me, yester-you, yester-day (Sorry, Glasto is still repeating on me (in more ways than one)), but it’s full applications have still not yet been realised. I myself have been chirping on about what the world will be with AR glasses. Merely glancing in a corner could bring up your facebook, Google maps or phonebook, incorporating flawless voice and finger recognition, even using that painty nails tech. Well, unfortunately I ain’t no Patrick Bovine, so I can not demonstrate this through the power of after effects, fortunately… I am not the only one who fantasises about pointless conceptual technologies.
Thank you Spannungs:
In celebration of Michael Jackson’s life and in homage to the anniversary of his death, some clever chaps have created an MJ white glove cursor for desktops, websites and blogs (but not mine).
Here’s a little of what they have to say:
“The glove was a symbol of his artistry, genius and magic. Our tribute is a beautiful gesture to honour his music and contributions that made the world a better place.”
