Thursday saw the launch of the Innovation Advice and Guidance service from our clients Angle, in which we recently developed their web site.
Ray Mear’s capped it off with an inspiring talk, cleverly mixing his bush craft experiences with business. I think i’m off to do a solo kayak though the Amazon and test my decision making skills, I wonder how long I would last!
Daphne d’Archard is a student from Eindhoven studying in Lincoln for one year. Her latest invention involves interactive floating umbrellas, sound and image projection. Crazy, interesting a little bit mad but definitely worth a mention.
Interactive Design student Adam Rowe has been experimenting with this metallic based fluid. It creates fantastic spikes and structures whenever it comes in contact with magnets – there’s a project in here somewhere!
Decode: Digital Design Sensations showcases the latest developments in digital and interactive design, from small screen-based graphics to large-scale interactive installations. We visited Decode in early in February – its been so busy here we have not added this amazing experience to our blog until now. Brilliant exhibition – fantastic technologies, fun interaction and unforgettable user experiences. Check out the link http://www.vam.ac.uk/microsites/decode/
After setting a new brief for our interactive design students at the University of Lincoln “Interaction with out a keyboard or mouse”. I thought I would visit the natural history museum and see how they mixed education with interactivity.
I forgot how brilliant this place is and how much is in there, probably why I forgot to take pictures. There is a great mix of interactive installations some as simple as pushing a box or playing with sand and water to high tech earthquake simulations…oh and they had dinosaurs!
This work in progress project has allowed us to play with some new Flash Action Script and Papervision, to create a 3d camera moving in and out of planes. The Shure Song Writing Award competition web site gives wouldbe singer/songwriters the opportunity to share their talents and details with the world. The videos are showcased on-line and put to a public vote in April.
The finalists will be judged by a panel, one of which is Paloma Faith, with the winner receiving a free placement in the prestigious Institute of Contemporary Music plus equipment form sponsors Shure. The only condition is that they have to play an instrument in the video.
