Robin Good's curator insight, December 16, 2013 11:44 AM



Evver is a free web app which allows you to create music slideshows with extreme ease. You simply select your favorite pictures (from 10 to 100), you pick up a song, among the available soundtracks, and the rest is automatically done for you.


You can re-arrange the order in which the photos will be shown in the final video and delete the ones that you don't want to use and you are set to go.


Evver edits your pics in sync with the music and creates a music video that can be easily shared on any social media or embedded to your site or blog.


My comment: Very, very easy to use. The selection of music tracks that you can use is presently very limited. The final result is good, but - as you can see from my sample - not as good as it could be. 
 

Free to use.

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking | Create and Communicate | Scoop.it

Catchbox is a new throwable microphone designed to liven up audience participation, and in turn reduce the faffing around that seems to occur whenever a conference turns to questions from the audience.

The brightly coloured padded cube houses a wireless microphone that doesn’t mind being tossed across a room or passed from person-to-person crowd surfing-style. In fact, it’s actively encouraged. That’s because, along with being able to sustain being dropped, the device has been engineered to automatically mute the sound when flying through the air or if it falls.
