…Augmented reality can change your bedtime stories?

There’s a good chance augmented reality will change the way we interact with information in the very near future, as this demo shows the potential that AR can have on a simple story book when combined with a video camera that has been integrated into a desk lamp:

…Video is the new photo?

Megan Fox Esquire Cover

For the June issue of Esquire magazine, Greg Williams used a RedONE video camera to capture Megan Fox for the cover.

The shoot, which apparently involved about 10 minutes of Megan Fox ‘acting’ out various scenes, will be chopped up into an infinite number of potential cover photos, and one will make the cover thanks to the RedONE’s resolution, which is four times that of HD.

Could this be the future of photography as we know it?

…It’s Things Thursday: Draganflyer X6?

Draganflyer X6

The Draganflyer X6 “is a remotely operated, unmanned, miniature helicopter designed to carry wireless video cameras and still cameras”.

It’s also one of the most bad-add R/C copters ever made.

Draganflyer X6 Specs

Features include a six rotor co-axial configuration that makes the Draganflyer X6 compact, stable, and powerful, a full carbon fiber folding frame that also makes it light and easy to carry, and 11 on-board sensors that make the X6 the easiest copter to fly in its class, including three gyros, three accelerometers, three magnetometers, one barometric pressure sensor, and one GPS receiver.

Loose radio connection?

No problem; the Draganflyer X6 simply lands itself and waits for you to return.

Loose an engine?

Again, no problem. The Draganflyer is able to continue flying, even with one engine entirely out of commission.

With camera options that range from anti-vibration mounts and digital still camera holds to HD video, low light, thermal infrared and micro video cameras, there’s even a payload option to match every need.

James Bond, eat your heart out.
