The Art of the Future will be FRAMED*

Tue May 24, 2011


From FRAMEDofficial

It was bound to happen as LED display screens have gotten thinner and lighter. The next big thing will be subscription to works of Art, sent to an appropriately sized LED screen hanging on your wall. This is the concept behind FRAMED* which consists of a 40-inch HD Samsung LED display and an Intel Core i5 processor running Windows 7 powering it. It can display static or interactive art, Web apps, and motion graphics. It features a microphone and webcam.

A restaurant could use it to display its menu du jour, specials and ads. Or simply display beautiful art.

FRAMED* enables you to display diverse forms of expression including interactive art, web applications, motion graphics & illustration. FRAMED* transforms all spaces – whether private or public. From your living room to a gallery, cafe or restaurant, FRAMED* brings style to all moments of life.

It’s A USB Drive, It’s A Spy Camera, It’s Peepster!

Tue May 24, 2011

You could easily mistake it for a USB flash drive (which it is, at 4GB) or as one of the Gumbo characters with its squid-like tripod legs.

Which is why it makes such a good spy camera (OK, a 3MP camera that could be used for cloak-n-dagger spy work) appropriately named the Peepster, from Duh Technologies.

With a variable timer (8 min, 4 min, 2 min, 1 min, 30 sec, 10 sec, instantaneous shot), it will record slices of your life or whoever happens to be in front of it. Sounds like fun. [But, please, don't hang it around your cat's neck.]

Nikon’s First Electronic Camera Cost $20K

Mon May 23, 2011

Nikon QV-1000C

Nikon QV-1000C

Wow, it was only 23 years ago since Nikon introduced its first filmless and electronic camera, the QV-1000C. It is careful not to call it a digital camera since technically it isn’t one; instead, the Nikon QV-1000C is an analog B&W still video camera with a 380.000 pixel CCD sensor and images are stored on a magnetic two inch video floppy disk.

Michaels Camera Museum

Mon May 23, 2011


From petermxxxx

If you are in Melbourne, Australia, do visit the Michaels Camera Museum at the corner of Elizabeth and Lonsdale Streets. What started as a pharmacy in 1928 steadily grew into a camera store now with about 2000 vintage cameras on display from a collection of about 8000.

Cameras and photographic equipment have been part of the Michaels family business since 1928. At that time, michaels was primarily a pharmacy combined with a small range of photographic equipment.

The camera collection began in a modest way during the 1950′s. michaels began operating as a specialty camera store in 1975.

What a smart way to get customers in!

Come Fly With Me

Sun May 22, 2011

Experience Human Flight from Betty Wants In on Vimeo.

You won’t get me to jump out of an airplane, but this is what the skydivers from the Melbourne Skydive Centre do for fun and sports! In February 2011, the five times world champions Fred Fugen and Vince Reffett from Soul Flyers were invited to Melbourne to provide advanced 3D coaching to some of Australia’s leading Skydive athlete talent and this video captures the thrill and beauty of “human flight.”

Summer Reading: 100 Pieces of Fantastic Journalism

Sun May 22, 2011

Summer has always smacked of lazy reading in the sun with a tall glass of orange juice or your favorite coffee strategically placed within arm’s reach, and preferably on an Amazon Kindle [QuickPrice Check]. Conor Friedersdorf, associate editor at The Atlantic, shares his list of must-reads personal picks for the best nonfiction of 2010. You’ll find topics that range from sports to crime to science to food to more… However, notice I said “lazy” but not necessarily “easy” reading.
