The One About Touching Photoshop

My favorite comment so far in reading stories on Adobe’s new interface has been “no way, that is so photoshopped!” and i kind of have to agree. Looking at the development cycle to date, and the idea that tablets are quickly becoming the new laptop, it really isn’t too far off conceptually. The less likely part of the following link are the three words: team, Adobe, and Microsoft being used in the same sentence. Wow…not that I know of some kind of hateful relationship between the two giants…i am just struggling with displacement of word i expected: Apple.

The One About Room Alive

Very exciting tech demo from Microsoft – room augmentation with interaction with 3d projection mapping with multiple cameras with video game engines that could evolve into full spatial demos with architecture…

The One About Building Site Context in Revit

Descriptive titles rule, they keep my writing to a minimum.  This is the second video on the Revit to Real series – please don’t hesitate to post any questions or concepts about the process!

The One About The Future Computer Monitor for 3d Models

Um yeah, watch the video…then imagine this (inFORM) in high resolution and higher fidelity color.

inFORM – Interacting With a Dynamic Shape Display from Tangible Media Group on Vimeo.

Brilliant.

The One About The Last One on Revit to Rift (Revit to Virtual Reality)

So, there was a series, back in the day, (wow, i like commas, lots), that covered animation for architects and never quite closed out fully with integration of virtual reality to the Oculus Rift.  Well, now it does.  Enjoy!  The process is great fun (comma), and a potential game changer in the way we communicate design.
