There have been a couple of launches this week. So the first link is the announcement of our Dev Kits over at BERG Cloud. Exciting times for us, and lots to build on there.
Joe and I are working on some physical interface stuff at the moment, and Joe sent this video of interchangeable controls for the Teenage Engineering OP-1. We love the rubber band controlled knob at the start of the demo.
More from Malia. We love the work of David O’Reilly and he writes about the changing use of time in animation:
I made these videos to illustrate more clearly how contrast in timing was something that has a clear progression from the 30s to the 90s
I like the annotation for movement in animation he uses too.
From Helen, wringing out a water-soaked cloth in space.
Bunny Huang writes about the $12 feature phone he found in a market in China.
We need someone with a cat to get one of these.
Matt Webb pointed us towards an interesting Kickstarter. Dropbox meets Bittorrent meets local private storage.
Denise unearthed this video explaining Japanese research project looking at gesture based UI and projection. It’s great to see a different tack in the area of the Lamps project we produced last year.
