I found out about this vehicle on the show Tech toys 360 episode 208. This vehicle is a glimpse into the future which I hope gets here sooner than later. For the longest time, I always felt it was such a waste of energy when I drive around and 90% of the time it’s a max of 2 people in the car. This vehicle is definitely a step in the right direction and I will purchase if given the opportunity.
I took this from their FAQ which answers a lot of questions I initially had when I saw this vehicle.
Our initial small production run will sell for $24K, or around $19K after US tax incentives. As we scale up to full production, we’ll drop the price accordingly, with the end goal of around $12,500 (before tax incentives).”
Here’s a video of them driving it around and trying to tip them over:
Interesting behind the scenes on keeping things feature rich while keeping the UI within their own brand guidelines as well as the mobile OS’s design guides.
In essence the iPlayer Apps contain the same features and content, but of course Android users, for example, have a different expectation of how to navigate from iOS users. Gestural interactions are a good example of differences between the user interfaces.
Gestures: get me there quick!
Network and Wifi connectivity is obviously a major concern when it comes to using apps. To reduce the number of journeys and page loads we looked at implementing gestures that would let the audience trigger actions more quickly.An earlier idea we had for revealing additional functionality without having to go through to an episode page. A ‘long press’ on a programme would reveal the icons.
With a wealth of potential flicks, taps, and drags to choose from we have kept things simple. To reveal the favourites star on the app, you simply swipe on a programme item in a portrait list.Swipe and tap the star to favourite a programme
And to play a programme immediately and by-pass the epsiode page, you can simple double tap on any programme item in a vertical list.
Kim stopped by my desk, recorded me and then chucked a Missile at me through the Action Movie FX mobile app (Itunes link) . Great stuff, enjoy:
Found this today, and I have to say it looks awesome! I’m going to be signing up for a course in the very near future, I’ll let you know how it goes. People sharing what they know instead of hoarding information for Job Security (you know who you are), nice!
Skillshare is a community marketplace to learn anything from anyone. We believe that everyone has valuable skills and knowledge to teach and the curiosity to keep learning new things. This means our neighborhoods, communities, and cities are really the world’s greatest universities. Our platform helps make the exchange of knowledge easy, enriching, and fun.
All of the classes happen in the real world. That means offline despite what we nerds may consider to be “real.” We believe that learning should happen in groups around shared interests and passions. When you bring together a variety of voices and hands-on instruction, truly spectacular things happen. This magic just can’t be replicated over a webcam and chatroom. We’re here to spread this magic and increase the gross happiness index around the world.
Found this on yahoo news. With the use of a Microsoft Kinect, some Grad students figured out how to project onto any surface and make that surface an input device, pretty impressive:

Researchers from from the Grenoble Informatics Lab in France are using the camera to track your eye gaze and change the image displayed on the tablet based on your perspective.
Love that they have all the user’s in their regular work clothes, plus one guy takes a call while playing the game. Just plain clever! Like it says, there’s a soldier in all of us! Even Kobe Bryant and Jimmy Kimmel get into the game :)
Couldn’t believe when Derrick told me about this, and can’t wait!!!! Hey Shawn, quick game of escort, 1 on 1???
