New Scientist TV: Stone-Age cinema: Cave art conceals first animations

Think the first movies were screened in a cinema? According to an analysis of cave art, our prehistoric ancestors may have invented the concept while drawing on their walls.

In this video, researcher and film-maker Marc Azéma from the University of Toulouse Le Mirail in France reveals how several frames of an animation are superimposed in many animal sketches. A horse painting from the Lascaux caves in France, for example, is made up of many versions of the animal representing different positions of movement. In this video, Azema extracts the individual images and displays them in succession, demonstrating how they play back like a cartoon.

Leap Motion, Others Look Beyond the Mouse and Keyboard | TIME.com

Leap Motion, Others Look Beyond the Mouse and Keyboard | TIME.com | Art  meets Technology | Scoop.it
For the past few years, a handful of companies have been working on eye-tracking and gesture control for computers. Now, there are signs that these natural input methods are almost ready for prime time.

Wildcat2030's curator insight, January 4, 2013 6:04 AM

There was a time when the mouse and keyboard were the two primary ways to interact with a computer. Then came touch screens, and the idea of “natural input” became all the rage.

Our eyes and the space around us may be the next big innovations on that front. For the past few years, a handful of companies have been working on eye-tracking and gesture control for computers. Now, there are signs that these natural input methods are almost ready for prime time.

Here’s one recent example: Leap Motion, the maker of a small, upcoming motion controller for Windows and Mac computers, announced this week that its hardware will be bundled with select PCs from Asus. Later this year, Asus will start embedding the technology directly into high-end notebooks and all-in-one PCs. (A standalone version of Leap Motion, which costs $70, is shipping soon.)

Leap’s sensor is roughly the size of an iPod, and it creates a space of eight cubic feet for recognizing hand and finger gestures. Leap expects its technology to be useful in 3D modeling and artwork, mid-air handwriting, gaming or just pinching and zooming on web pages. The company is releasing tools so developers can make their apps work with the device.
