Atlas Virtual Reality Turns Any Room Into A Holodeck You Can Run Around In

Atlas Virtual Reality Turns Any Room Into A Holodeck You Can Run Around In | Socmed Tool Box | Scoop.it
Archenemies for decades, video games and exercise are about to unite. Atlas is a cheap, new “walk-around” virtual reality system that uses markers you put on the ground to track your movements as you play with an Oculus Rift headset.

Sandys VR's curator insight, July 30, 2013 4:25 AM

Uh, pretty cool. Position-tracking is one of the key parts of VR. Unfortunately it also gets more expensive as it has to get more precise. I wonder how precise Atlas is and how accurate it can track your position. It seems like they're using some kind of fiducials or other optical markers to locate your position in a room mapped before. If you watch the video closely sometimes you can see little jumps, this seems to be a delay in the recognition of the markers by the iPhone. Great idea though! I hope this kind of technology will become more popular soon to have more reasonable priced but accurate solutions available.

Design Resources: Web-Based Color Tools

Design Resources: Web-Based Color Tools | Socmed Tool Box | Scoop.it

One of tne of the most important things designers work with is color. Every element they draw, type, or generate with a computer, gets a color. It is impossible to create anything visual without making color decisions. And to make things harder, estimates of the total number of discernable colors range from one hundred thousand to ten million. Add issues of human perception and color vision deficiency, and you could get a headache doing anything with colors, let alone building a color scale for data.

 

Luckily, you have some great tools at your disposal to help with color decisions. These tools incorporate different approaches, so each one is good at slightly different things. There are two main classes of tools for dealing with color. The first class is intended to help with design decisions, and the second class covers data driven color scales.

This model is based around the blooms taxonomy of higher order thinking. In the centre it has the traditional headings of blooms, the next circle has action verbs, then activities to accompany each level of thinking.

The new addition is the outer circle; in this layer the addition of various ipad apps are included. There are a selection of ipadd apps availble to each level of thinking in various topics/ area of study.

Create and Show In-Sync Multimedia Web Presentations Across Devices with Swipe


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, September 11, 2013 1:06 PM



Swipe is a new web app which allows you to easily create multimedia web presentations by simply uploading images and PDF files or linking to specific video clips.


Once uploaded, slides can be easily re-titled and can be sorted intuitively in any order you want.


Your final Swipe presentation can be shared with anyone and you can show slides in-sync to anyone viewing. You can even stop or pause video clips that are part of your Swipe presentation as they are being viewed and re-start them when you like.


Swipe-based presentations can be created, edited, delivered and viewed across all kind of screen sizes and devices from desktop computers to smartphones.


Cool features include the ability to preview the next upcoming slide without viewers seeing, private and public settings, and a custom timer that measures your presentation time. 


My comment: Excellent presentation tool for delivering in-sync slideshows. For delivering presentations to an audience you need to factor in a teleconference or audio conferencing tool for the audio part. As it is Swipe it's great for one-to-one or small group conferencing via Skype in which you want to show a presentation in sync with everyone (screen-sharing for groups on Skype is a pro option, it's paid, requires lots of bandwidth and it isn't that great if you don't a lot bandwidth).


The approach used by Swipe to show slides in sync with everyone is very bandwidth effective and makes it possible to use this tool effectively in situations where participants have little bandwidth and use smartphones and tablets, in place of using screen-sharing apps which are bandwidth-hungry solutions.



In private beta. Request access here: http://beta.swipe.to/

Make It Easy for Anyone To Connect To Your Projector via this WiFi box: Prijector


Via Robin Good
more...
Robin Good's curator insight, October 17, 2013 10:52 AM



Prijector is a new hardware device that eliminates issues arising when different people, who have different computers and setups need to connect to a projector.


You know how the story goes. One guy forgets his VGA adapter cable. One another doesn't have a HDMI out plug. And so on.


Prijector solves the issue by acting as an intermediary between any computer wanting to present and the projector itself. You connect via WiFi to this device and that's it, you don't have to worry anymore about cables and plugs.


Therefore even if you have a conference with multiple presenters, each one of them only needs to connect to the Prijector WiFi access point to be connected to the projector.


Key advantages I see:

  • you don't have to worry about people having the proper cable or adapater to connect to the projector
     
  • you are not locked to be within cable length distance from the projector
     
  • you can easily switch from one presenter to another easily without flipping cables
     
  • you can provide local wifi access to the people attending


I haven't tried one but it looks useful.



Pre-launch pricing: $119 (later $199)
