Lovely ultra-simplified geometric artwork by the inspired Dan Matutina. Matutina pits both classic and current enemies against each other using fantastic naturalistic textures, noise and materials.

AppArchitect Lets Anyone Build iOS Apps, No Coding Or Templates ... | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Easy app creation, outside of the land of Ruby and Python, has become a huge phenomenon in the last year. And the latest company to join the fold,AppArchitect, is launching straight from our Disrupt NY stage.
Matmi's insight:

Not the first attempt at this but still an interesting platform. I personally can't see it latching on with true developers but could be a great tool for beginners - if only to have some fun while they learn the skills of the trade.

Mesmerizing minimalist fractals | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
They say you can’t create fine art using fractal algorithms; but Finland-based digital artist Jukka Korhonen has set out to prove them wrong. Fractal art is
Matmi's insight:

I love these images by digital artist Jukka Korhonen. He has managed to find a great balance between the fractal algorithms of computer art and the more aesthetic elements of digital art. Thus giving it a more 'human' feel to it. As the article says, they wouldn't be out of place in a fine art gallery.

Bill Gates predicts iPad and Android users will switch to PC tablets

Bill Gates predicts iPad and Android users will switch to PC tablets | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Users 'frustrated' by limitations of devices, says Microsoft co-founder, implying many will look to move to Surface productss. By Charles Arthur
Matmi's insight:

I'm not sure if Bill Gates is right on this one. I think people who want to create documents will use their mac or laptop, business folk then. The majority of the 141m iPad owners are likely playing angry birds, watching cats on youtube and using facebook/twitter, not much need for document creation within this audience. 


As an aside, I've found creating presentations on the iPad a hell of a lot easier than trying to navigate around powerpoint.


The Surface does look lovely though!

Google Glass App Lets You Take Photos With A Wink

Google Glass App Lets You Take Photos With A Wink | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it

Developer Mike DiGiovanni just created an app called Winky. It lets you wake Glass from standby and take a picture with the wink of an eye.

"Winking really changes things," DiGiovanni writes. "You might not think it's hard to say "Ok, Glass Take a Picture" or even just tap a button. But it's a context switch that takes you out of the moment, even if just for a second. Winking lets you lifelog with little to no effort. I've taken more pictures today than I have the past 5 days thanks to this. Sure, they are mostly silly, but my timeline has now truly become a timeline of where I've been."

I come across alot of Capthcha boxes in my day to day and I HATE them.  But this little Captcha box would make them less of a bore - and better on the eyes from less squinting to work out the words. Plus there is that undeniable feeling of satisfaction when getting a quote right ;)
