Photobus ~ Digital Storytelling Digital Stories are multimedia narratives Short, personal and written with feeling there's a strictness to their construction: 250 words, a dozen or so pictures, and two minutes is about the right length. Considered narratives which subject themselves to strictures of form tend to elegance. Digital Stories – when properly done – can be tight as sonnets: multimedia sonnets from the people.

Education Apps for iPad, iPhone and the Web Should students be carrying three or four textbooks to school each day? We don’t think so. As students of all ages are spending their time on tablets, we have been working on a number of solutions for education publishers and schools to make sure users can get the content onto devices easily. How do I create textbook apps with YUDU? If you are looking to publish a number of textbooks for a specific student demographic, a textbook app running on iOS, Android and Windows is your best option. 'Terminator' contact lens for rabbits; humans are next The future has never looked more like a science fiction movie Researchers from the University of Washington and Aalto University in Finland are one step closer to developing a contact lens that may one day allow you to see words displayed over your regular field of vision -- just like the Terminator, RoboCop and EVA from Pixar's "Wall-E." Potential applications of this developing technology include navigation, gaming, and receiving instant data on the vulnerabilities of those you are trying to destroy. In a study published in the November issue of the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, the paper’s authors explain that the lens would receive data through an antenna that is embedded right inside it--- (the round gold circle in the picture above). The contact lens also has a tiny silicon power-harvesting and radio-integrated circuit, metal interconnects, insulation layers and a very small transparent sapphire chip containing a custom-designed micro-LED. --Deborah Netburn
Future Tech: Looking Forward to the Post-Screen Era Over the past few years, I’ve developed two habits that have made me an increasingly unpopular movie date. One is a strong preference for 3-D movies, undeterred by low artistic value or by sensations commonly associated with brain tumors and food poisoning, not to mention the big, dorky, blinking plastic glasses. (I can’t wait to upgrade my home TV to 3-D—my family, bless them, having assured me that blinking glasses are the least of my problems when it comes to looking dorky.)
Augmented Reality I think we can all agree that reality is pretty great. It’s what we experience through our senses like our eyes, and phones with cameras. The Internet is awesome too, but the Internet and reality have a hard time working together. Thankfully this is changing quickly. New tools mean that the world around you can now be seen with a layer of new information from the Internet. Total Immersion and the “Transfigured City:” Shared Augmented Realities, the “Web Squared Era,” and Google Wave Above is an image above from Total Immersion’s augmented reality experience developed for the “Networked City” exhibition in South Korea, – “a fun scenario created for a u-City’s infrastructure and city management service” “To the naked eye, the exhibit looks like a bare bones model of a city. But when visitors put on the special AR goggles a whole new world unfolds – as graphics overlaid on the city model. ” ( Games Alfresco)
How Invisibility Cloaks Work" Admit it. You'd love to own an invisibility cloak. Utter an embarrassing faux pas at a party? How 3DO Creates Video Games" Once the storyboards and overall game level designs are complete, the game enters the production phase. The preproduction team expands as needed to include additional artists, programmers and designers. 3DO's artists began developing the 3D models that will make up the worlds of Portal Runner using a software application called 3D Studio Max. Richly detailed texture maps were created for each object. While the game developers at 3DO created the actual game environment using these models and textures, another division of the company, PlayWorks, used the same models to develop the animated full-motion video (FMV) sequences for the game. Meanwhile, the programmers wrote custom code in C programming language that provided the framework for the game objects.

My PhD thesis work was completed in April 1998 with the defense of my thesis, "Interactive Augmented Reality". 1. Augmented Reality Augmented Reality (AR) is a growing area in virtual reality research. The world environment around us provides a wealth of information that is difficult to duplicate in a computer.
Reuters Photo Fraud The Reuters Photo Scandal A Taxonomy of Fraud A comprehensive overview of the four types of photo fraud committed by Reuters, August, 2006 The recent discovery that the Reuters news agency released a digitally manipulated photograph as an authentic image of the bombing in Beirut has drawn attention to the important topic of bias in the media. But lost in the frenzy over one particular image is an even more devastating fact: that over the last week Reuters has been caught red-handed in an astonishing variety of journalistic frauds in the photo coverage of the war in Lebanon.
