The 2014 Annual iPhone Photography Award Winners

The 2014 Annual iPhone Photography Award Winners | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

While other smartphones impress customers with their camera's megapixel specs or larger sensors, the iPhone is arguably still the photographer's smartphone of choice due to its reliable image processing, fast performance, and the huge range of third-party editing apps.

Demonstrating the iPhone camera's capabilities is the iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS), the 2014 winners of which have just been announced. Each entry must have been shot and edited on an iOS device, with no Photoshop post-processing allowed. We've selected some of of favourite winners from categories such as Landscape and Architecture to Trees, People, and Food, but be sure to head over to the official IPPAWARDS site to see them all for yourself.

Using Smartphones to Improve Walkability

Using Smartphones to Improve Walkability | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

When it comes to walking in the city, our smartphones provide us with pedestrian sat-nav, reviews of the best places to visit and even measure how many calories we’re burning. In fact, recent research suggests that our phones are encouraging us to even explore more places.


Now, a new mobile app provides an essential tool for the walkable lifestyle. It enables people to check the walkability of the street they’re standing in, as well as discover new walkable streets in other areas and add their own reviews.

The free app uses over 600,000 street ratings from Walkonomics.com, covering every street in San Francisco, New York and England. But unlike other walkability apps, which only measure how many destinations are within walking distance, the Walkonomics app provides 5-star ratings for 8 different categories of pedestrian-friendliness:

Road safetyEasy to crossPavement/SidewalkHillinessNavigationFear of crimeSmart & beautifulFun & relaxing


The Walkonomics mobile app provides a crowdsourcing tool for events, allowing more people to be involved, add reviews and post suggestions. With more cities to be added, the app has the potential to become the new ‘must-have’ app for not only discovering and enjoying walkable streets, but also transforming and making streets more pedestrian-friendly...

Exploring Digital Space: Projection Mapping + Robotics

Exploring Digital Space: Projection Mapping + Robotics | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The live performance film from Bot & Dolly- the SF-based engineering studio that helped create the sense of weightlessness in last year's film Gravity- demonstrates the potential to generate 3D illusions on moving objects, using large-scale robotics and human choreography.

This confluence of spatial experience, media, and human ingenuity makes projection mapping a truly unique and relevant creative process that enables new ways of seeing and creating space, light, and form.

Will Smart Technologies Shape Future Highways?

Will Smart Technologies Shape Future Highways? | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

With the proliferation of mobile electronic technologies, interactive displays have begun to appear more frequently in fixed contexts such as smart rooms and media-driven building facades.


The latest focus of smart surface research is on the most connective element of the constructed environment: the road.


At the recent Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, Studio Roosegaarde announced a joint effort with Heijmans Infrastructure to create the Smart Highway. This proposal for an electronically-enhanced road system fuses disparate elements of existing road infrastructure. Lighting, signage, and the roadbed are now a singular, integrated system.

The Digital Interactive Roadway designed by BIG for the Audi Urban Future exhibition in 2011 proposes a similar roadbed enhancement. The surface of the DIR incorporates strips of LED lights and a distributed network of sensors that respond directly to changing automotive and pedestrian traffic.
