Haptix turns any surface into a multitouch surface. Take interaction to the next level by tapping, pinching, or swiping on any surface instead.
Looks like a pretty robust tech - even though I'm still not convinced about all the "physical" ways to interact that do not imply a "real" touch input... I lack the trust in their robustness and their lack of "friction feedback" as I could call it... the feel of something happening.
Amazon Studios already asks viewers to help decide what television pilots should and shouldn't be turned into a full series, and now it's starting to bring viewers into the creation process even earlier.
Amazon pushes customer''s involvement in the creation process early on by givin them access to pre prod materials through Amazon Preview.
The team at Play-i decided to avoid abstract concepts and the traditional focus on written code and syntax that are the core elements of most common programming languages today. Instead, they made it fun - kid's fun.
Reminds me of Cubelets in a more cute / approachable form
Well, it seems that you, the web video watching public, has spoken. Amazon announced today that it has whittled its robust list of pilots down to five
⊃2;From Cynopsis Media newsletter:
Amazon Studios, in a race to catch up to Netflix, has ordered three new comedy pilots, which will be available for free on Amazon Instant Video in early 2014. [The fact they go to pilot has been] determined by customer feedback - in May, Amazon plucked five series out of fourteen pilots which will be video-streamed as part of the $79 Amazon Prime shipping service.
"Twitch has given tournament promoters the ability to cheaply and easily push live streams to millions of viewers with minimal lag. On the consumer side, it’s now possible for anyone with a PC to get in on the action. On average, more than 600,000 different players broadcast several millions hours of gameplay on Twitch each month. And the number of potential streamers is about to get much bigger. "With Twitch being integrated into the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, anyone, even with no technical sophistication, can be playing a game, and with the press of a button, be broadcasting their action live"
Twitch TV has been the tool allowing eSports and Video Game broadcasting to truly blossom. Now I wish that the "share" features of next gen consoles allows video game broadcasting to expand beyond eSports competition-fueled vibe and into new narrative realm - powered by gamers.
""We think that computer graphics are going to be so realistic in real time computer graphics that, over the next decade, we'll start to be able to take the post out of post-production; where you'll leave a movie set and the shot is pretty much complete," said LUcasFilm's chief technology strategy officer Kim Libreri Libreri said.
At MIT’s Comparative Media Studies, where the MIT Open Documentary Lab is housed, we are confronted with this question on a regular basis as humanists sitting in a land of hackers who marvel at the power and elegance of code.[...] As more storytellers consider migrating to the web and other digital platforms, the relationship between filmmaking and programming becomes more pressing.
Fantastic series introduced by this article and followed by interview with "leading practitioners. Not only do we learn how people work with technologists but that, in some cases, technical expertise is not even necessary. Our initial question about programming emerged into a larger dialogue about the nature of digital storytelling."
Doug Dorst is co-author of S., a book that takes place within the margins of another book (it's complicated). Here, Dorst reveals how he collaborated with J.J. Abrams to create a kind of printed alternate reality game.
Pervasive gaming is a well-worn idea that’s drifted through the pages of design theory for at least 20 years. It’s the idea of a game that goes beyond the bounds of one screen.
With the ever growing acceptance of smart phone and other powerful mobile devices, it is likely to become a reality soon... or is it?
The "perception issue" point at the end sums it up. Persavise gaming is a nice idea, but it is not only a path full of technological obstacles, the main one is that most people are simply NOT going to buy it...
So developing huge game universes for a happy few is not going to be very commin in a near future.
Amazon is preparing to release a video-streaming device that would compete with Roku and Apple TV in time for the holiday selling season, according to people briefed on the company's plans.
Amazon is making some big moves these days... after getting into video game production (below the radar for now as they might have a steep learning curve on that front), now they follow the path of Valve's Steam Machine ecosystem or Google's ChromeCast initiative.
Apple has lured away top Nike design director Ben Shaffer, according to a source at Nike with knowledge of the details behind Shaffer's departure. At Nike, Shaffer was the Studio Director of the Innovative Kitchen (R&D).
I don't usually curate on exec moves, but that is a very RELEVANT one as Apple could give him the resources (soft to hardware) needed to move forward on that front.
We've got the operating system, we've got the hardware, and now we've got the human interface device... that was the logical step. I can't wait. I would love the Steam ecosystem to top Sony and Microsoft's hegemony in the living room.
