How the Apple Watch may have saved this man’s life

How the Apple Watch may have saved this man’s life | No Stylus - All about Touch Screen | Scoop.it
Ken Robson, 64, was visiting his son in San Diego, California when he started feeling weak and light-headed. Whenever that happened, he noticed his Apple Watch was showing a severe decline in heart rate. “Your heart rate doesn’t go into the 30s and 40s unless you’re an Olympic athlete,” Robson told MedCity News.The next day he went to the emergency room at Scripps Mercy Hospital, where he told the staff that he had researched online and believed he had sick sinus syndrome—which causes an arrhythmic beating of the heart and can turn life-threatening quickly—and he had two weeks of data on his Apple Watch to prove it.

David Allen Wizardgold's insight:

 This is the fifth video in a series of videos showing how to use Pinnacle Studio. It is very easy to add a voice-over to your video and you can see very clearly how the voice-over is relating to the video elements. Once you have recorded your voice-over you can trim the audio clip at the beginning and end. If you need to split the audio track, then you can do that with the razor blade tool. This would be a way to chop out sections of audio from the middle of a audio track.

 

In this video I also look at how you can swap one transition for another. I show you that it is going to be probably necessary to render the video if you make changes to the length of the transition.

 

Pinnacle for iPad is in my mind the best of the video editing applications for iPad. Of course I do still keep iMovie on my iPad because there are some things that iMovie does do better. Of the two applications Pinnacle Studio is my go to movie editing application. This is because I think that there is more control over what you are doing within Pinnacle Studio.

Ten Reflections on the First Year of an iPad Pilot

Ten Reflections on the First Year of an iPad Pilot | No Stylus - All about Touch Screen | Scoop.it

Passing out iPads to students on the first day of school was like celebrating Christmas (or in this case Hanukkah)  with thirty antsy kids sitting around the tree,  attempting to hide their impatience.  Once the iPads had been handed out, students were instantly excited, engaged and enchanted with the new learning device in their hands. At first, everyone was confused about where to find work, where to save and store their products – and which app to use for what purpose. As with every pilot, these issues worked themselves out and soon classes were running pretty smoothly. Once they all learned what a “hard reset” was we were on our way. After an exciting year chalked full of learning lessons and changes in our learning landscape here are my takeaways:'

 There are plenty of applications at therefore adding effects with filters to photos, but this one will also allow you to add effects to video. One of the effects reminds me of the animated style of video for the film 'A Scanner Darkly'.

 

There are occasions when you want to have a weird and wonderful effect applied to either a photo or a video and this application will do that for you on your iPad. I had a bit of fun trying it out and you have filters such as grunge, marble, black pencil and the wonderfully named 'Life on Mars'. It doesn't get better than that, does it?

David Allen Wizardgold's insight:

 Drawing and painting on the iPad is a great way to be creative with your iOS device and to do it you need some good iPad drawing and painting apps. I have been trying out a few of these art apps for iOS and I think that ArtStudio has to be one of the best applications out there for creating digital art on the iPad.

 It took me quite a long time to find out how to create custom art brushes as the documentation didn't really mention how it could be done. In this video I show you a step-by-step guide with making your own brushes in ArtStudio.

 

When you're working on a drawing you want to be able to do some things pretty quickly, such as changing the colour or the mode of drawing. In our studio there are gestures available that you can use to get to dialogue boxes for choosing the way that your application is working quickly. When you are creating a digital painting you want to be able to let the creativity flow and you don't want the application to get in the way. By using these gestures that are configurable in ArtStudio you can really fly at your painting and let your art takeover.

Looking for an iPad application on which to do your digital drawing and painting? I have been using ArtStudio and loving all of the tools that you get with the application. 

 

Loads of tools for applying colour as brishstrokes, pen or pencil lines and also as a sprayed colour like from a spray can or an airbrush. You can have the colour go down wet so that when you add other colours wet, they will mix on the page.

David Allen Wizardgold's insight:

 I will be looking at a number of art, drawing and painting applications for the iPad. I have started with the application Procreate. This is one of my favourite applications along with ArtStudio for splashing colour around on my iPad screen. You get the opportunity to use some really good at drawing and painting tools for creating either nice crisp creative lines or making colourful textures with the brushes.

 

The application could do with some tools for selecting various as you would find in the application ArtStudio, otherwise there is just about all that you need for iOS creativity. There are some good layer tools with a number of blending modes. There are a good number of brush style is available that are infinitely configurable so that you can have paint applied however you want. If you don't want to lay out cash for the extra brushes that you can buy, then you can make your own brushes very easily. In the next video that I will be putting out on the Wizardgold YouTube channel I will be demonstrating how to make a new brush.
