[VIDEO] Revealing Nature's Mathematical Formula for Survival

The vascular system of a leaf provides its structure and delivers its nutrients. When you light up that vascular structure with some fluorescent dye and view it using time lapse photography, details begin to emerge that reveal nature's mathematical formula for survival.

Add Your Talking Head Video To Your Presentations with Present.me

Add Your Talking Head Video To Your Presentations with Present.me | Singularity Scoops | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Present.Me is a web app which allows you to easily combine your presentation with your own talking head video, in perfect sync.

 

First you upload your image slides or presentation file (PowerPoint, PDF, Excel, Word, OpenOffice or Google Docs) and then you can record your video from your webcam while playing back the slides at your own preferred pace. You can also pause and restart any time.

 

Present.me now features a "trim" function allowing you to cut out mistakes and errors you have made and allows to create also presentations with your audio only (no video).

 

The final presentation can be shared online on all major social networks or embedded in any site or blog.

 

There is both a free plan, allowing for up to 3 presentations of 15 mins, as well as paid plans costing $9 (30 presentations of 60 mins and no ads) and $39/month (unlimited).

Doodle Animated Videos Illustrate Concepts Better Than Any Traditional Video Presentation

Robin Good: You have probably already seen a few of the outstading doodle animated videos done by Jorn Nielsen, the king of this art, in some notable clips from RSA called RSA Animates.

 

These videos are really fantastic, as the unfolding illustrations and characters keep you engaged and focused throughout the clip.

 

I would certainly recommend this type of video presentation to anyone who has a difficult concept to illustrate or the need to promote a concept, an idea or a product in a way that sticks out from the rest.

 

And while I would blindly recommend Jorn's work, not every publisher or marketing department can easily afford that level of quality and artistry.

 

As an alternative to those who may have a tighter budget Seallamations.com may present itself as an promising alternative.

 

I don't know yet what their pricing is on these doodle videos, but it is certainly good, for all parties involved there is more than one option to look into.

If you find out more, on services, resources and tools that can help you create great doodle animated videos, do not hesitate to let me know.
