BADLAND - Atmospheric Side-Scrolling Action Adventure Game from Frogmind

BADLAND - Atmospheric Side-Scrolling Action Adventure Game from Frogmind | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
BADLAND is an atmospheric action side-scroller adventure game coming to iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
Matmi's insight:

A beautiful looking mobile game. I love the silhouette foreground with coloured background. The physics engine in the game work exceptionally well on mobile. Top marks all round! I can't recommend it enough.

 

The important foreground interactive objects have been purposely designed with low detail to highlight the incredible art work in the background.

Augmented Reality: Fujitsu touch and gesture video interface

Augmented Reality: Fujitsu touch and gesture video interface | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
*Basically an entry in the Kinect and LeapMotion sweepstakes. The video mechanism has nothing to do with the paper, but when you project on something and people touch it, they never look up to see the camera lens and projector. It always comes across to the user as “magic paper.”

Watch a Game of Pong Played on the Side of a 29-Story Building | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Frank Lee, a professor at Drexel University's Westphal College of Media and Design, brought a five-year obsession to a successful conclusion on Friday: play the world's largest game of Pong, using the side of a building in Philadelphia.

This old arcade video game has been remade on all sorts of different platforms from the iPad to Playstation. It seems only natural to kick it up a notch and play it on a 29 story building, right?

Netflix plans its move from Microsoft Silverlight to HTML5 video

Netflix plans its move from Microsoft Silverlight to HTML5 video | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Last month Google announced that Netflix was now available on ARM-based Samsung Chromebooks thanks to the use of HTML5 video — and now the streaming service has outlined its larger plans to eventually move to the format for all computers. Currently, Netflix primarily uses the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in when streaming video to web browsers, but Netflix's Anthony Park and Mark Watson point out in a blog post that the current solution really can't stand. Plug-ins don't play well with with most mobile browsers, they can be cumbersome for users, and perhaps most importantly, Microsoft itself may not develop a new version of Silverlight beyond the current release.
Matmi's insight:

Good move. Makes sense to use utilise web standards, as opposed to 3rd party plugins. ^NB

MICHAEL WOLF PHOTOGRAPHY

MICHAEL WOLF PHOTOGRAPHY | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Matmi's insight:
German-born photographer Michael Wolf documents the extreme densities of Hong Kong. The images are incredible, effectively expressing the sheer scale of these structures.

The series is called ‘Architecture of Density’ and contains some truly stunning shots. Michael Wolfe has chosen to place the buildings themselves as the focus of the pieces, limiting the appearance of people in most of the images. 

The images of these Hong Kong high rises shows an impressive and opressive world.
