Anti-Drunk Applications

Just like “drunk-texting,” there is also a symptom called “drunk-posting.” For those of you who are guilty of this, there is now the Social Media Sobriety Test that will deter you from doing such embarrassing things.

Drunk-posting is the result of getting hammered and engaging in social media sites late at night, only to regret your slurred posts the next morning. The Social Media Sobriety Test app lets you input what times you are most vulnerable and blocks you from accessing Facebook or Twitter during those hours. Further, the app makes you pass a mental-agility test, like dragging a cursor in a straight line, in order to access those sites when intoxicated. The Social Media Sobriety Test is a genius idea for all those digital drunkards out there.

ShowMe.TV Video Contests for the Community

ShowMe.TV is not a regular social community,it has a unique concept based on a video contest community that challenges and rewards its members to compete in regular video-based contests across four categories. In a unique twist, ShowMe.tv also enables members to bet on their favourite contest entry, and rewards the traditionally unremunerated voter with cash prizes if they bet on the winning video.

ShowMe encourages individuals to compete in contests across four key categories; – Sports, Beauty Island – Beauty, Donkey Circus – Pranks and Jam Planet – Music, by uploading short video clips where they can express themselves, sharing their passions and interests with the community. Every month ShowMe.tv launches contests across each category. Contests last for eight weeks and are won by the video entry that receives the most votes. LINK

Plastic comes alive! One Hundred and Eight – Interactive Installation

One Hundred and Eight is an interactive wall-mounted Installation mainly made out of ordinary garbage bags. Controlled by a microcontroller each of them is selectively inflated and deflated in turn by two cooling fans.

Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences of inflation and deflation create the impression of lively and moving creatures which waft slowly around like a shoal. But as soon a viewer comes close it instantly reacts by drawing back and tentatively following the movements of the observer. As long as he remains in a certain area in front of the installation it dynamically reacts to the viewers motion. As soon it does no longer detect someone close it reorganizes itself after a while and gently restarts wobbling around.

Letterbombing - The First Attacks

Keep Fear Alive! The inside story of a group of rogue ad execs who hijacked Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck’s Facebook pages—and how you can, too.
The vertical message that ran down the left side on Glenn Beck's Facebook page the night of October 14 read clear as that evening's sky:
"K-E-E-P F-E-A-R A-L-I-V-E." Minutes after the first message appeared, the same letters, in the same order, began turning up on the fan pages of FOX News', Sarah Palin, and hilariously, Justin Bieber. Each letter was displayed in the space where a profile picture would normally be, next to a posted comment. As each Facebook user posted their comments in the right order, the message came to life.

Facebook Book

"Bouygues Telecom asked us to come up with an idea to launch their facebook platform. They wanted us to create something that would go beyond using your profile picture in a funny way, or pranking your friends with a small joke. We decided to look at the way we use facebook and found that even though we use the social networking site everyday, we forget our favorite moments we share online. So we created an app that could change that, and keep your facebook, in a book. Developed by Perfect Fools" - Siavosh Zabeti

Eye Candy: The Most Realistic CG I've Seen

This is a 1:00 commercial for kitchen sinks or something made by Alex Roman entirely with computer graphics. I know you want to believe it's real, but it's not.
Per Alex: Asking your questions; yep, it's all CG -same process as T&S- I tried to put some live-footage shots but i run out of time so CGI did the trick. Whole production was 2 and a half months for the initial concept to the final editing; two people: Juan & me.

So yeah, this is the first time you'll watch CGI and argue it's all real. Have fun with that. I also embedded a impressive 13:00 short by Alex that's also entirely CGI (and impressive as hell).

Homemade spacecraft – Space flight iPhone camera footage

Video from a camera attached to a weather balloon that rose into the upper stratosphere and recorded the blackness of space. Seven-year-old Max Geissbuhler and his dad Luke Geissbuhler dreamed of visiting space. Armed with just a weather balloon, a video camera, and an iPhone, they basically did just that. The father-and-son team from Brooklyn managed to send their homemade spacecraft up nearly 19 miles, high into the stratosphere, bringing back perhaps the most impressive amateur space footage ever. The duo housed the video camera, iPhone, and GPS equipment in a specially designed insulated casing, along with some hand-warmers and a note from Max requesting its safe return from whomever may find it after making it back to solid ground. All told, father and son spent eight months preparing for their homemade journey into space, in hopes of filming "the blackness beyond our earth."

Georges Rousse – Optical illusions are awesome!

Georges Rousse (born 1947 in Paris) is a French photographer. Rousse's work, from the 1990s to today, generally appears at first glance to be photos of desolate or abandoned spaces (buildings, rooms, parking garages or streetscapes) often on their way to the wrecking ball, on which the artist has superimposed precise geometrical shapes or squiggly graffiti. So no, this is NOT photoshop, it's pure awesomeness. (Click for higher resolution)

The operator Batelco in Bahrain has global ambitions and gave the assignment to the advertising agency FP7 previously been known to fake their contribution to the Dubai Lynx advertising competition.

How large the budget was not clear but crative director of FP7 Fadi Yaish told Shots that media budget was not of international standard. "- The most effective solution for reaching across borders was to reach out in social media."

Tether DSLR to iPad

If you’re a photographer and an iPad owner, this is for you. Tethering your DSLR camera to your iPad is particularly useful in scenarios where you have clients previewing the shots that you take. The iPad alleviates the need for cords and you can simply connect up to a clients iPad and send the images directly. Just like the iPhone, the iPad also memorizes your wifi login so it makes it easy on you and automatically connects to your network. You have to purchase the Eye-Fi Connect X2, the card allows your camera to work on a Wi-Fi network, purchase from amazon. Your range from iPad to camera is also much better because you have a router as a middle man.
