Making Future Magic: iPad light painting

A really interesting use of the iPad, Light painting from Dentsu London, explores playful uses of the platform. Lovely music from Matt Brown (nice post about the designing the audio here).

Minimal Folio app

We just download Minimal Folio, a simple way to present images and video on your iPad. It really is simple and works really well, reminiscent of the wired app in terms of navigation. You add images and video to create a portfolio of your work, and with its unbranded interface your work can do the talking.

Our only gripe is the lack of ability to create multiple portfolios, although there are plans to add more features such as external display support, remote control via iPhone PDF support and dropbox support, so hopefully multiple folios will get added in the future.

What better way to start the week than with a new wallpaper for your iPad/iPhone, download below.

Arcade Fire - The Wilderness Downtown

Arcade Fire's latest track 'The Wilderness Downtown' employs an interesting interactive technique. Personalisation of location through a clever blend of api's. Really brings the visual experience a little closer to the viewers heart. Also like the clever window popups, quite unqiue. Check it out. A part of the Chrome Experiments.
