…Obscura Digital augments your world?

Obscura Digital

Obscura Digital turns buildings into giant displays using synchronized HD projectors, and their latest target was the old mint building in downtown San Francisco for the YouTube Symphony.

The software that they’ve developed automatically calculates and compensates the video for distance, angle, surface, shape, brightness, picture shift, and other variables to create a seamless experience, and with some creative minds behind the end design, the result is a building that literally comes to life before your very own eyes.

…The Bubble is back?

Here Comes Another Bubble was a fantastically viral video about the Web 2.0 bubble that was taken down recently by a San Francisco photographer’s DMCA take-down notice over her ‘stolen’ image.

Thankfully, that photographer’s photo has been removed, and the video is back as v1.1:

Unfortunately for The Richter Scales, the group behind the video, their 15 minutes hasn’t exactly been profitable:

    In the week Version 1.0 was up, we sold only eight CDs of previously recorded music. That’s one CD sold per 125,000 viewers of the video. If this rate holds, the “profits” from CD sales will equal the $355 we spent making the video when Version 1.1 gets its 3.5 millionth view.

I guess DMCA notices don’t necessarily need to be correlated to lost compensation!
