"Seen first at Microsoft TechForum 2012, IllumiShare enables remote people to share any physical or digital object on any surface. It is a low-cost, peripheral device that looks like a desk lamp, and just like a lamp lights up a surface at which it is pointed, IllumiShare shares a surface. To do this, IllumiShare uses a camera-projector pair where the camera captures video of the local workspace and sends it to the remote space and the projector projects video of the remote workspace onto the local space. With IllumiShare, people can sketch together using real ink and paper, remote meeting attendees can interact with conference room whiteboards, and children can have remote play dates in which they play with real toys."
Robin Good: Forget GDrive coming next week. I have just been testing for a few days Bitcasa, which promises unlimited storage for $10/month (free while in Beta) and I must say I have been quite impressed.
Once installed on your Mac or PC, Bitcasa makes itself available to "cloudify" any folder/directory you want with a simple click and then it works in the background to upload and copy all of your files to the your infinite storage drive.
You can sync-up different computers and portable devices and get access to all of your precious files from anyone.
To show how eager Bitcasa really is to receive tons of your files and to backup hundreds of gigabytes of stuff, Bitcasa has installed on my Mac a little utility (with my approval) that automatically offers me, everytime I plug in an external hard disk, to cloudify its contents.
I have already cloudified over 20GB without a hitch and now I can see them from all my computers.
If you need to work or collaborate with othe people, are on the move, and can't carry around a suitcase of hard drives, Bitcasa may provide an ideal solution at a very accessible cost.

Robin Good: This free service kindly provided by the Australian centre for the Moving Image, allows film and video students as well as buddying film freaks to easily create a reference storyboard without knowing how to draw a line.
The tool is completely web-based, and it provides a choice of three possible types of scripts to work on:
Once you have chosen a script, the online scripting editor makes it easy for you to work on your script as you would expect.
Then, using a library of camera shots and moves that can be easily dragged and dropped on your empty storyboard canvas, you can give visual life to your script. You can add your own pictures and illustrations to the library as to customize the storyboard in any way you want.
