HP Debuts First PC With Built-In Leap Motion

HP Debuts First PC With Built-In Leap Motion | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
The HP Envy 17 is a big-size laptop that has Leap Motion technology built in.
Matmi's insight:

Matmi Jeff and I had a conversation a while ago about where technology was heading. My point was that touch is an awkward control mechanism, and tech would likely develop to allow control of hardware through a more natural input method. 


Gesture control is that method. Blinking to take a picture with Google Glass feels natural, as does a swipe gesture to change screens. The technology is getting there and will explode in the near future. Google Glass, Leap Motion and Oculus Rift are just a few of the products that will come to define this move. love it!

Life after Street Fighter

Life after Street Fighter | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Video games seldom deliver a "happily ever after". The fight has been fought, the princess has been rescued, but the sequel is on its way! Why not crank the difficulty up another notch and give it another shot?
Matmi's insight:

This is really ace. What ever happened to.........Street Fighter's warriors. After they were famous. I'd love to see Sonic, Mario, Princess Peach, Bomberman.......... @MatmiStew

Seene lets you capture 3D objects using an iPhone

A three-dimensional object captured with iPhone app Seene, available today, is hardly the stuff of a James Cameron movie — but is nevertheless incredibly impressive. With less than 30 seconds of...
Matmi's insight:

It's amazing how much extra information the brain can assume about an object with just a little amount of movement. You really get a sense of depth and form from the images Seene produces.


Reminds me a little of the "Wigglegram" gif craze, but furthered by interaction.


Looking forward to the Droid release ;)

Phonebloks

VISIT WWW.PHONEBLOKS.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION! AND https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/2931-phonebloks TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
Matmi's insight:

We've all got several old phones hidden away. I can think of 3 that I have under my bed alone, then there's the old cameras, VCR's, TV's, stereo's, radio's, walkmens, games consoles, laptops. So much old junk that never really broke, but I just upgraded. 


The sheer volume of old tech that we chuck away is extraordinary. Which is why Phoneblocks is such an amazing idea. Now if only they can make it look super sexy and I think they are onto a winner!


I'm definitely getting one, as long as I can still play subway surfers on it.
