Sony PS3 | Immersive Movie Experience

Like many of you, I grew up on the sega-mega drive and N64, but today technology is taking our wildest dreams and making them a reality. The folks at Sony have made huge strides in the use of immersive move technology.

According to London based interactive design firm The Found Collective, their goal was to push video mapping on from anything that has been done so far. Using live puppetry, 3D tracking, pyrotechnics (and a whole bunch of their friends’ spare time) they transformed a room into three different vignettes.

Can you guess the films?!”

New Watch Alert…Hublot

Discovered in 1901 and referred to as one of the world’s earliest computers, the Antikythera Mechanism – a tool used by the ancient Greeks to predict the passage of the planets – has been refashioned by watchmaker Hublot into a wrist-ready timepiece. The movement, which has displays for both the front and back is one of the most complicated endeavors the brand has ever taken on. On the front, it features the calendar for the Panhellenic game, the Egyptian calendar, the position of the sun in the constellations of the Zodiac, the phases of the Moon and the sidereal year. On it’s back, it displays the Greek’s Callippic cycle, the Metonic cycle, the Saros cycle and Exeligmos cycle.

Roughly larger than a postage stamp, Hublot’s one-of-one movement will be on display at watch expo Basel World 2012. It will be on permanent display at Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris. (via: Life + Times)


HTC Sensation

(From Roman Ruetten)

Concept: HTC Sensation is more than just a normal phone. And instead of showing the phone first and then what you can do with it, they decided to go the opposite way with reverse story telling. They first show only one of the key features (like the audio experience) then build from there, and we see an explosion of beauty and a wonderful soundsculpture. The liquid is symbolic of the different multimedia faces of this phone. According to  HTC “Its flexible enough to take every shape that you need according to your demands.”

Apple’s new MacBook Pro

Apple unveiled the new MacBook family today and the big difference is the speed – the three new laptops are up to twice as fast as the previous generation.

Coming in three form-factors – with 13 inch, 15 inch and 17 inch screens – the MacBook Pros pack significantly faster dual-core and quad-core Intel chips. The 13″ packs the fastest dual-core chip going – the Intel Core i7 which runs at 2.7 GHz. The powerful 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro models feature quad-core Core i7 processors up to 2.3 GHz.

A new addition is Intel’s ThunderBolt I/O technology which means your computer can communicate with plug in devices  more quickly. The Thunderbolt pipe speeds data along at 20x the speed of USB 2.0. It lets you edit high-defintion video from an external hard drive say, or stream video out to a television for example with no hiccups in quality or delays in transfer time. The channels carry data at “an amazing 10Gbps each”.

Graphics are faster too – with AMD cards providing graphics rendering at 3x the speed of previous MacBooks, good for gaming and video editing.

The in-built webcam is now HD and as ever, the computers are built from one smooth unibody piece and clock in at a slender 0.95 inches.

Prices for the 13-inch models start at $1199, $1799 for the 15-incher and the 17-inch model weighing starting at $2499.


A Prologue of The Future

The ‘Flip Phone’ is a concept that was inspired and developed by Kristian Ulrich Larsen, Ewa Sendecka, Jeppe Vestergård and Victoria Kusk. For quite sometime I have attempted to put into words how I feel about this phone… but I have failed on every single attempt. So I have decided to simply say this…

The developers of the phone were determined to break away from the norm, consequently, managing to portray a glimpse of what the future has in store. Technology has progressed at a rate that nobody could have predicted, many attributing this to the basic human instinct of; wanting to know what is beyond the ‘cave’. The ability to question the known and the willingness to experiment with the unknown, with continued perseverance one can only wonder of the possibilities. Such out of the box thinking is the reason why we at Denovo adore such ingenious creativity.

Imagination is more important than knowgledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand. – Albert Einstein.
