Now this is something that I sure hope is going to remain fiction… TOO MUCH INFORMATION!
This code library is brought to you by Google and allows easy control of many real world “pixels”. These could be buttons, led lights etc. There are much older frameworks out there such as http://blinkenlights.net/ but this anypixel.js can be used by any web developer. The referenced hardware is also very easy to setup.
This is how many different brands will be engaging their consumers in the near future. It looks really simple and natural. Using Google’s or Apple’s voice recognition could make this ever so simple. Rogers is using Facebook messenger as well but I’m not sure if it’s based on AI or live human interaction.
Disney’s R&D team created this great proof of concept. It reminds me of the Da Vinci robotic surgery but used for entertainment and probably at a 1/10000th of the cost.
This isn’t digital and it doesn’t need to be. Very effective and simple. This is a great idea for an application; embed different sculptures and produce a single, multi-angle installation.
There are quite a few high end 360 video rigs out there now. High end also means over $15k in terms of commitment. The long awaited Omni rig’s 360 video is impressive at a 1/3 of the cost. It also comes with great software allowing you to edit the resulting 360 video.
This is SO cool! Sensors are very cheap and integrating them into software is very simple.
If this demo is real then am I ever impressed. Getting, storing and plotting the depth information real-time with a $3k device is VERY neat.
I wonder if it really works? How does it only attract mosquitoes that carry Zika?
