First There Was Touch, Then There Was Handwriting

Friday, February 28th, 2014

For decades we have used keyboards to communicate and express ourselves in the digital world. Relatively recently, the focus of user input has shifted towards multi-touch interaction, at least for a select group of devices and tasks. Now it seems that handwriting is about to get a boost in the virtual space.

Wacom is releasing a cross-platform standard for sharing handwritten notes and drawings. This is even more impressive when we consider that users will be able to experience and interact with how their collaborators are sketching something or writing a note. Imagine sitting in your hotel room with your tablet in your hand, while watching in real-time how your child creates a drawing on his device at home. Technology is getting increasingly focused on the human factor, and I believe this is the exact way to follow.

A Formula 1 Cartoon

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

So it seems McLaren are the first to bring their world in to the cartoon universe. The following includes 12 (funny!) episodes of the McLaren focused cartoon entitled Tooned:

The main stars are Lewis Hamilton, James Button and Professor M… plus of course a set of guest stars. I must say, I really like the fact that they used the original drivers to voice the characters. But judge for yourselves.

Why Did They Cancel Futurama… Again?

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

I didn’t want to let this pass unnoticed. So as you may or may not know, a couple of days ago Futurama, the other brain-child of Matt Groening, got cancelled… again. After running for five seasons and being cancelled in 2003, the show seemed to still have a pulse. After a couple of DVD movies, Futurama got aired again in 2010. However, while having a constant stream of followers, it never reached the same success again as in the first try. Where will all the geeky fans turn to now? The Big Bang Theory? Well sure, but it’s still won’t be the same…

Yesterday – PhD Comics. Today – PhD Movie!

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Surprise, surprise! PhD Comics, the already famous comic strip, is not coming to the big screen. Well, medium screen. Currently they only allow for screening to be organized on campuses all over the world. So if you want to bring the movie to your university, check out their website and follow the instructions. Who knows? In a couple of weeks, you might have a BBQ + PhD Movie weekend on the campus green.
