Beck / Hello Again

Beck_Hello_Again

 

Lincoln asked Beck and Chris Milk to remiagine the concert in this digital age and came up with this. It is freaking incredible. It is a complete 360 degree video experience with various cameras to view the concert from pretty much any angle you want. It even uses your webcam to provide eye tracking to help you move around the scene by just moving your face around. Its pretty impressive stuff. The load time is long, but I promise you its worth the wait.

The complexity of Simplicity

Found this video in a great article on Feedly today about how to achieve simplicity in our work. After all that is what we strive for in a good user experience. We want users to find their way around stuff in an intuitive manner, however simplicity can sometimes be subjective and this article does a good job of pointing out some tips to make sure you are always making things as simple as they can be, and in turn creating the most elegant solution for the problem at hand. Enjoy!!!

VW Smileage makes trips more social



Pretty awesome idea, wasn’t really too clear on how the bumping feature would work, but really dig anything that mixes real world experiences with digital ones. You can always count on VW for innovation.

Everything is a Remix



Everything is a Remix Part 2 from Kirby Ferguson on Vimeo.



Finally got around to seeing this, really makes you wonder about creativity and originality. Is there such a thing as a totally new idea, or is everything really just a remix of something else? Check out the video and let me know what you think.

Museum of Modern Art meets google street view






For all of those who have never been there, now there is an opportunity to visit the MOMA virtually. Google has taken their street view technology and set it loose in some of the worlds most amazing museums. I have been lucky enough to visit a couple of the museums on this list, but technology like this now makes it available to anyone with an internet connection. Props to Google for giving people the opportunity to use technology to trick the laws of physics and visit museums from around the world without ever leaving your home.
