Design Interactions Research UMK was commissioned by the Design Museum in London. The project presents perspectives on a fictional future for the United Kingdom. It sees England devolved into four self-contained counties, each free to experiment with governance, economy and lifestyle. These 'live laboratories' interrogate the cultural and ethical impact of existing and new technologies and how they alter the way we live. Digitarians depend on digital technology and all its implicit totalitarianism: tagging, metrics, total surveillance, tracking, data logging and 100% transparency. Their society is organised entirely by market forces; citizen and consumer are the same.

Benjamin Bojko It’s been quite a while since my last webcam tracking post but some magic has happened behind the curtains and two projects emerged during the last weeks which I don’t want to leave unmentioned. The guys at Neue Digitale did a pretty sweet job with their Audi Quattro Urban Curving Online Special which offers a game that lets you steer your way down steep roads by tilting your head left and right with the help of my tracking code. Mariusz Kreft and Matthias Gomille from argonautenG2 used my code for an awesome banner prototype as an entry for the Young Lions Award in Cannes. Let’s hope they rock the contest. Here’s their Home Sweet Home Cinema website : I’ve got a small update for my tracking code in the pipe which both of these projects are using.

Slavery Footprint - Results Dear , As a supporter of your business, I wanted to let you know I've recently become aware of an issue that affects us both: modern-day slavery. There are over 27 million people enslaved today, many of whom make the things we use and buy. This issue is quickly becoming a priority for millions of consumers world wide. OPENCV \ library OpenCV is an open source computer vision library originally developed by Intel. It is free for commercial and research use under a BSD license. The library is cross-platform, and runs on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. It focuses mainly towards real-time image processing, as such, if it finds Intel's Integrated Performance Primitives on the system, it will use these commercial optimized routines to accelerate itself. This implementation is not a complete port of OpenCV.

Concordia University Chicago - Art Lessons Welcome to Concordia University Chicago’s link to Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories, a tool to promote visual literacy through artwork. Recognizing visual cues in a work of art as well as being aware of the times and conditions in which an artist lived enables students to better interpret its imagery, draw conclusions about its effectiveness, and speak critically about the art. Art education research indicates students enjoy a richer art experience and improved visual comprehension when the following four disciplines are included in the art experience: Art History (the study of past artists), Art Aesthetics (response to art), Art Criticism (discussion of art using art vocabulary), and Art Production (hands-on making of art). Artists and Their Art: Sharing Visual Stories focuses mainly on art history by providing a biographical sketch of the artist, an image of one of the artist’s specific works and details about that work.

Exporting for iPhone using Air 2.7 and FlashDevelop - Part Two, Creating an iPhone Project Continuing on from Part One of the Exporting for iPhone using Air 2.7 and FlashDevelop Tutorial you should now have FlashDevelop primed with the Flex/Air 2.7 SDK and you’re now ready to start building your amazing iPhone App. In Part Two you will see how to set up an iPhone Air project which will allow you to export an swf ready to be packaged up into an ipa file (the file format for iPhone Apps). Developing for iPhone (and mobile in general) We’ll skip through actually coding your application as this is a topic in-and-of itself, but for the most part it’s no different to coding any other SWF, you just have a few more considerations to make, eg. the touch interface and importantly, memory management.

Making shooting function with RayCast iPhone I have a Player script that shoots a bullet (rigidBody) to kill an enemy, and the same for enemy, who shoots that same bullet to kill Player. Unfortunately enemy bullets mess with my camera ( it's a 3rd person camera) when they get between camera and Player, so the camera is jerking for like one frame.I took some examples from forum to replace bullets with raycast, but with no results. Is thers some simple way to replace my current functions of instantiating bulletPrefab with raycast? Here I have 4 scripts:

STEAM Project: Tiny Dancers (A Homopolar Motor) Today we are getting a bit artsy with our science! Does the idea of making a wire sculpture that “dances” entice you……? Tiny Dancers is the third project in our collaborative series STEAM POWER: Empowering kids to explore the world through creative projects. Today’s topic is HARNESS! Because harnessing refers to making use of resources to produce energy we decided to try making a homopolar motor. Hundreds of Vintage Posters Are Now Available to Download and Print 100% Free - Creators If the posters of today still had the look of those of yesteryear, would they still get tagged and trolled as often? Much work today, it seems, lacks the graphic audacity of yore, opting instead for forms and formats we've become accustomed to. That's why, when you find vintage posters in flea markets, you find prices that might suggest they were just printed. Many of these posters are available online, but it's often difficult to find high enough quality to print them beyond standard A4 printer paper sizing. Finally, our savior: FreeVintagePosters.Com.

DontGoThroughThings Author: Daniel Brauer, Adrian Description This script uses raycasting to avoid the physics engine letting fast-moving objects go through other objects (particularly meshes). Changes v1.1 (Boo): Added "Switch To Layer" convenience option to move the game object to a given layer and remove that layer from the layer mask (the original layer is restored if used together with "Time to Live").
