3D Comes to the iPhone with the Hasbro My3D


I’ve finally found an accessory for my iPhone 4 that i just can’t live without. The mega toy company Hasbro have unveiled a 3D viewer that’s designed for Apple’s second, third, and fourth generation iPod touch, iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4. As soon as I found out about it I ran to my local Target (its exclusively sold there, coming to a different store near you in June!) and patiently waited for the sales guy to unpack the boxes. Needless to say I was the first person to buy one from that store. Read the rest of this entry »

Astounding Coin Animation!

You don’t usually hear the phrase ‘astounding coin animation’ these days do ya? Have a look at the video all the way to the end, the makers show the secret behind how it was made. No elves were involved, I promise! (I like the old PET computer in the background. nice!)

Human Eye Like HDR Video System

I’ve long been a fan of the HDR image. Shooting full motion video has never seemed to be an option until now:

Anyone who regularly uses a video camera will know that the devices do not see the world the way we do. The human visual system can perceive a scene that contains both bright highlights and dark shadows, yet is able to process that information in such a way that it can simultaneously expose for both lighting extremes – up to a point, at least. Video cameras, however, have just one f-stop to work with at any one time, and so must make compromises. Now, however, researchers from the UK’s University of Warwick claim to have the solution to such problems, in the form of the world’s first full High Dynamic Range (HDR) video system.

World’s first full HDR video system sees like the human eye.

‘Flutter in Pinhole’ Instant Camera

A clever concept camera that combines retro instant pictures with even more retro pinhole photography. Each camera comes pre-loaded with two sheets of Fuji Film instant film (probably Instax mini ) and easy to follow pictograms on the back. You pop open the camera, open the shutter flap to make the exposure, and then collapse the camera again. The pencil that’s included is then rubbed along the back in one direction to burst the developing paste on the film. Cut in half and you have two photos, one for you and one to send as a post card to a friend. Very clever! I now have a reason to get a pack of that film and mess around with it.

Hand Made SLR Camera

I see this and I feel that I’ve been seriously slacking off! ‘Denis MO’ have been thinking of building his own camera for many many years and finally decided to act on his dreams. His original camera design is loosely based on Russian cameras (Zenit, Zorki, etc) and can use common Russian lenses (Industar, Helios, Mir) and has a variable shutter that can be set to 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, and bulb. After about 500 hours of planning and machining he now has a fine camera that takes a pretty good picture.
