Res, a matter. Following our previous study on biophysical and spatial sensing, we narrowed down the focus of our research, and constrained a new study to MMI with 2 biosignals only. Namely, we focused on mechanomyogram (MMG) and electromyogram (EMG) from arm muscle gesture. Although there exists research in New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) focused on each of the signals, to the best of our knowledge, the combination of the two has not been investigated in this field. The following questions initiated this study: In which ways to analyse EMG/MMG for complementary information about gestural input? 25 Handsome iPad User Interface Designs The successor to the iPad 2 was unveiled on March 7, 2012 by Apple CEO Tim Cook. The new iPad sports the new dual core A5X processor with quad-core graphics, and a Retina Display with a resolution of 2,048 by 1,536 pixels.

If you are planning to knock somebody off and take their customers, your app needs to be stellar.
17 Tools For Making Awesome Client Presentations Ask five designers how they handle client design presentations and you’ll get five different answers. Some like to do their presentations in person, accompanying their designs with printouts detailing specific highlights. Others prefer utilizing an online screen sharing experience and talking their clients through their design in real time. And then there are those who simply ship off the jpgs in an email outlining the design’s main points. No matter what your method is for revealing your design, it is important to use tools and resources that can make your presentation successful.
Hiroaki Umeda Hiroaki Umeda is a pluridisciplinary artist : choreographer, dancer, sound, image and lighting designer.

The New Aesthetic A GLIMPSE into the future of retailing is available in a smallish office in Hamburg. From there, Otto, a German e-commerce merchant, is using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve its activities. The firm is already deploying the technology to make decisions at a scale, speed and accuracy that surpass the capabilities of its human employees.Big data and “machine learning” have been used in retailing for years, notably by Amazon, an e-commerce giant. The idea is to collect and analyse quantities of information to understand consumer tastes, recommend products to people and personalise websites for customers. Otto’s work stands out because it is already automating business decisions that go beyond customer management. The most important is trying to lower returns of products, which cost the firm millions of euros a year.Its conventional data analysis showed that customers were less likely to return merchandise if it arrived within two days.

With the recent popularity and pervasive nature of iOS devices in school districts it is essential for educators to understand how to implement Blooms in the classroom using the apps that are available.

Tango "Thirty-six characters from different stages of life - representations of different times - interact in one room, moving in loops, observed by a static camera. I had to draw and paint about 16.000 cell-mattes, and make several hundred thousand exposures on an optical printer. It took a full seven months, sixteen hours per day, to make the piece. The miracle is that the negative got through the process with only minor damage, and I made less than one hundred mathematical mistakes out of several hundred thousand possibilities. In the final result, there are plenty of flaws ® black lines are visible around humans, jitters caused by the instability of film material resulting from film perforation and elasticity of celluloid, changes of colour caused by the fluctuation in colour temperature of the projector bulb and, inevitably, dirt, grain and scratches.” - Zbig Rybczynski –Looking to the Future - Imagining the Truth,” in FranÐois Penz, Maureen Thomas, Cinema& Architecture.

me and my shadow me and my shadow is an installation project combining telepresence and motion capture. I think most people know the second term – it means capturing the movement of the human body to control an avatar or character (usually). The first, ‘telepresence’, basically means full-body teleconferencing. Skype really, but bigger, and usually higher bandwidth. Here of course we weren’t sending normal video data, but a complete 3D ‘capture’ of the body.
Do It Myself Blog – Glenda Watson Hyatt » Steve Jobs, Thank You for Contributing to My indePendence With the rest of the technologically innovative world, I am saddened by the passing, today, of Steve Jobs due to pancreatic cancer. Damn cancer. I have written many posts on how the iPad changed my life in a relatively short time; on how the iPad gave me an affordable, acceptable and cool communication device and how that has further opened the world and opportunities to me. But one intended post I didnâ€™t write â€“ partly because I didnâ€™t know how to express my sentiments and partly because I thought I still had time â€“ was a thank you to Steve Jobs for his innovative vision and to the Apple Development Team for turning his vision into reality. Steve, your iPad gave me something that no other device has: a way to communicate with those who are not familiar with my unique accent Glenda-ish.
