Here’s a round-up of the things that impressed us, sparked our curiosity, and made us laugh last week.
The thing we most want.
The trusty mouse and keyboard combo have served us well for the past few decades, but it seems our dreams of Minority Report style gesturing are finally a reality.
An innovative use of a QR code (just when we all thought they were dead)
The same technology, used in an interesting and innovative way. When empty, the glass looks like it’s etched with a fancy pattern. Once filled with the black stuff, it becomes a useable QR code which is fully integrated with social channels.
An immersive 360 degree experience, on YouTube.
Whilst you might not appreciate the music, it’s hard to deny the 360 degree, multiple camera-angled views available on some of 02 Academy’s live music videos aren’t impressive. It’s great to see the evolution of YouTube as a platform.
Yet another incredible Google Doodle.
Google continue to impress with their doodles, and this one’s up there with the best (including our Freddie Mercury doodle http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe0gIFxYhrk though we may be biased…) It celebrates the birthday of Robert Moog, inventor of the Moog Synthesizer. We possibly enjoyed this a bit too much in the office…
A song dedicated to the Facebook IPO. Yes, really.
Amongst the bombardment of IPO articles, news and rumours, it’s nice to take a step back and enjoy some absolutely ridiculous musical nonsense.
