It’s hard to believe that this fly-through is done in real-time in Google Earth. It’s even more difficult to believe that it’s all running through the browser.
Good tie-in of in-house experiential with the big impressions of out door media.

Everyone wants to skip the 5 second pre-roll and MINI takes advantage of that. How clever!
I skip pre-roll ads and I’m sure you do too. I wonder if I was to skip this one if I were to stumble upon it organically?
Modern web is awesome. Check out this experiment showing video/audio/3D manipulation, all through your trustworthy, modern browser. Not sure if this works in IE.
There is yet another way or yet another hack to track anonymous users on smartphones. A security researcher by the name of Hristo Bojinov has discovered that each accelerometer in a smartphone has a unique fingerprint. There is a more precise tech explanation that you can explore here.

I hope you’re not paranoid…

There are many CMS (content management system) out there and Barley is a new one with a slight twist. You don’t need to know any code at all.
Barley allows you to chose from a slew of predefined (designed and built) templates. The user can then edit and add the content right on the site. All you got to do is login to the site through a small login widget. The service will cost you $18/month which includes the hosting. Apparently it registers 1,000 companies on daily basis – that’s $18,000 a day! Mmmm, I love me some barley!
Beck has collaborated with Chris Milk to create an interactive video concert. There were 3 video cameras, capturing a 360 degree view of the concert. The beauty is that you can control the zoom and the pan of the cameras on demand. Don’t want to use your mouse to control the camera? No problem – use your head with the help of a face tracker (written in flash) to pan around.
Make sure that you go with the SD version as the HD can take several days to load.
