Mark Strozier's curator insight, October 1, 2014 10:12 AM

The ability to shoot outstanding video footage, is taking a giant leap forward going into 2015.


The specs on GoPro's new Hero 4 are jaw-dropping-- UltraHD 4k video at 30 frames per second?! 1080p HD video at 120 frames per second?! WiFi & Bluetooth all in a box that weighs about as much as a Snicker's bar and priced at only $500?!


Jaw appropriately dropped.


Along with the continually improving camera technologies, drone tech is keeping pace and it's giving cinematographers options for new perspectives that up until a year or two ago were imaginable only with CGI.


To get a sample of the creative options this combination offers filmmakers and cinematographers take a look at PlexiDrone's video: http://youtu.be/hROA-vOyId4 ;

Why Robots Are Better Than Humans At Testing Human User Experiences

Why Robots Are Better Than Humans At Testing Human User Experiences | robotics | Scoop.it
Who would you want to test your touchscreen device? Maybe an older adult, to ensure it’s intuitive even to someone who isn’t a digital native? Maybe a kid, who’s got high expectations for modern tech? Well, Intel doesn’t use a person at all, MIT Technology Review reports. Instead, it uses robots to evaluate how much people will like new devices.

Earth's Cosmic Context

"Superclusters – regions of space that are densely packed with galaxies – are the biggest structures in the Universe. But scientists have struggled to define exactly where one supercluster ends and another begins. Now, a team based in Hawaii has come up with a new technique that maps the Universe according to the flow of galaxies across space. Redrawing the boundaries of the cosmic map, they redefine our home supercluster and name it Laniakea, which means ‘immeasurable heaven’ in Hawaiian.  Read the research paper here."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 9, 2014 2:30 PM

Spatial thinking and geographic exploration is constantly seeking to understand place in context to other places.  More often than not, that is done without every venturing beyond this planet, but in many respects, space is the greatest of contexts on the grandest of scales for us to understand ourselves.  I first saw this video embedded in an NPR article and it filled me with wonder to think about the immensities of space and that the Earth is such a small little corner of the universe.
