Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, February 10, 11:15 AM

The AR narrative - show, don't tell.  AR is almost impossible to tell someone about if they haven't seen it.  The technology is getting better but AR is only just touching it's potential to create user value beyond the 'new and thrilling' factor.  Helpful to see the range of applications and think about how AR can significantly impact/disrupt current behavior and support human goals while minimizing the physical burden of tech devices.

assass's curator insight, February 26, 6:36 PM

The implementation of the Augmented Reality tecnology in the architecture field present the possibility of changing for the best the way architects interact with their clients, allowing them to understand in a more compreenhensive way the building and the funiture they are paying for. This tecnology will also allow the client to take their house with them and present it to any friend or family, creating a feeling of affection for the build even before it is built.

Amanda Lane's curator insight, July 7, 2014 3:41 PM

This 3d cube presents six audio/video streams on the six faces of a cube. As the user rotates the cube in three dimensions, the audio streams mix and transition smoothly according to which face is most in view.

 

The technology driving this is WebGL and HTML5 soon to become familiar to us all, and bringing improved quality for accessing and viewing three dimensional environments.

The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Simon Parkin:  'Milk wants to create art that can impact millions simultaneously, so he’s turned to virtual reality, which is set to make a triumphant return in the form of the Oculus Rift, VR goggles built from smart-phone technology. He is unequivocal about it: VR is what will succeed film as the “future of storytelling” and the “next great canvas for human expression”.'

Chris Milk is a true 21st century artist. The fact that he learned to code at an early age is very relevant. His collaboration is Aaron Koblin are mind blowing and he can also truly shine on his own - as the Lincoln Hello Again project shows it

Archiving Transmedia - What happens when the platforms you use to tell a story go away?

Archiving Transmedia - What happens when the platforms you use to tell a story go away? | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Mike Vogel:  "Here’s a dilemma every transmedia producer faces… You discover a new storytelling platform–maybe you get in to their invite-only beta–and you create a story that uses the strengths of that platform. The platform gives you a powerful new way to express yourself interactively, but then something happens. Maybe the startup runs out of funding, gets acquired, or changes their business model. Suddenly the DNA of your story is no longer available to you. Your story can no longer be told."

'Together storytellers, game developers, makers, creative technologists and experience designers will experiment with new forms and functions of storytelling. '

Vivalist's curator insight, January 26, 4:50 PM

Columbia joins the MIT and Duke University in the search for 21st century storytelling. It is interdisciplinary, that's one thing.

 

There are probably a lot of other academic programs in other universities as well. It's exciting to see interdisciplinary programs such as Duke' GreaterThanGames initiative give birth to awesome projects.
