5x flat panel displays = pCubee 3D

“Look at the shiny shiny cube….”

The smart people at the University of British Columbia have created a “personal cubic head-coupled 3D display that shows reactive 3D scenes”.

Basically it’s a box that adjusts to movements, and lets you interact with objects inside a virtual 3D world.

pCubee is made with five flat-panel screens that uses perspective-corrected rendering and real-time physics simulation to create compelling visualization and interaction techniques for 3D content.

Very clever. Very cool.

Incredible Gran Turismo 5 footage

Real or CG. Gran Turismo 5 is blurring the lines even more.

Took a couple of viewings for my eyes to tell the difference on one of the shots.

Technically impressive. Can’t wait to see what the game play is like.

Google Envelopes. In concept beta

There’s something really nice about taking something form the digital space and giving it physical form. Few privacy concerns maybe, but I like it as a concept.

Designers Rahul Mahtani & Yofred Moik from the Industrial Design program at Syracuse University came up with this concept called Google Envelopes.

Very cool iPhone “Voice Control” alarm clock app

via youtube.com

I’m going to try this out later.

Interesting to go for completely voice / no-touch in an app, but I like the look of it.

LastHistory – interactive visualization your Last.fm history, obviously

Takes a while to initalise the first time, but once the data is in there it’s loads of fun to play with. It’s also got a really nice ‘personal mode’ that hooks up to iPhoto to display pics taken at the time you listened to the music.
