“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.
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.
Guilty as charged, an iPad post on the launch weekend. Bear with me – I’ll keep it short. Videos only!
Early days yet but it could be a great device for learning / reading / playing.
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.

Face PONG from Matt Ditton on Vimeo.
Nice bit of tracking so you can use your face as the main input.
Written using the OpenCV library for processing.
Matt Ditton is hands on with quite of different things. Programming, photography, indie games development, tech art, environment modeler, university lecturer, DVA student. To find out more, see thequietvoid.com and his Flickr here. Not bad eh.
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.
This website is brilliant.
When people vote on actual POLICY the parties are rated:
1/ Green Party
2/ Liberal Democrats
Take the test for yourself.
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.
