what’s more exciting than the term user-generated mix with the term augmented reality
or whatever you call the “new AR”, “2d sketches become 3d reality”, “Sketch & Shape recognition”, “in place 3D sketching”
they’re technical terms, what’s really meaning to the market, the marketing term, is the “user-generated AR”
Hats off to the folks from the Visual Media Lab at Ben Gurion University and HIT Lab NZ, they have “jail-breaked?” the iPhone to release let anyone perform on-the-fly analysis of live streaming video on the iPhone.
what it means to agency/marketers is, we don’t need to print out something, or take it from magazine to visualize the 3D, just for the sake of seeing the little funny meaningless cutie 3D object, we can just draw on it, isn’t it cool?
(be patience, watch it till the end)
Check it out if you have no idea what it is
it’s like Google Analytics but measuring your electricity, not web traffic
you can visualize your electricity in a iGoogle gadget!
I believe this tool can make a difference to the world
I love the idea which is big and so practical
I’ve talked about this in Feb this year
they have an update recently which is ‘open for enrolment’
though I don’t really understand what does that mean exactly
but i think this google product is underrated, government should actively promote this, to save the world and save our money!
I just wish they’ll be available in HK asap.
I hope you like this as much as me.
For more information:
It’s really exciting that HTML 5 is geolocation based.
Oh yes it’s not something new, IP address tells something about your location but it’s not effective at all. Then GPS is the next big thing with you mobile, but since most desktop won’t equip with GPS, and even though these devices had the capabilities to get the current location, website developers are still facing the problem that they can not access the positioning hardware of the phone. There was almost no way for (mobile) web developers to get the location of the user.
So how does HTML5 work, they get the location information from the devices such as Wifi towers or GPS. Most of the modern phones are now equipped with GPS functionality and so the laptops with Wifi. So, it’s not difficult to get the location information from these devices. But to make use of this, the location information should be made accessible to the websites via the browser.
I think what makes it sexy is that it’s really simple, to enable this geolocation based thing, it’s like embedding a <img> tag in your HTML code and it doesn’t really require a GPS hardware
here’s a test that you can try
though, still not accurate enough, but interesting enough
i hope this will get more and more accurate as the wifi network is more extensive

Internet Explorer is the enemy of programmer
they put 20% of effort to build a website and 80% to fix it for IE
IE is wasting the time of human race
let the programmer go to sleep or spend more time with family or research
rather than fixing the damn IE
Google could be the saviour
they’re introducing Google Chrome Frame to IE
I truly appreciate the effort by Google
however under the monopoly of Microsoft, see how they kill Netscape
I think Google Chrome frame could never be really popular
how many of people would install it in their IE
this is only the wish by web developer…
UNLESS Google requires use to install the Chrome frame in IE when they browse Google search and Gmail and all of its product, otherwise nobody will do it seriously and the programmer will still spend 80% of their time in fixing IE
I just hope that there’s no IE in the world
