Idea Mine: An App for People Suffering From Photographer’s Block

“Idea Mine” is an upcoming iOS app by Canon that helps photographers save and generate ideas. The idea is that photo ideas can always be broken down into four components: location, subject, feeling, and technique. Provide the app with these four things, and it will store your idea for you to come back to later on. If you need some inspiration, hitting the “randomize” button will fill in the fields for you.

World’s first manned flight with an electric multicopter

What could have ended in human chop suey, instead resulted in victory for German engineers at e-volo as they successfully completed the first manned flight of an electric multicopter. The human death trap multicopter uses multiple mini helicopters to lift the passenger upwards -- who's snuggled in the center of the carnage, firmly strapped to a squishy exercise ball. Like an UAV, the hovering device is controlled via radio control from the ground -- talk about trusting. The passenger was able to hold on for one minute and 30-second of flight victory, causing raucous celebrations from the Wright brothers in aviation heaven. Click past the break for the video.

Nippon Electric Glass Co Ltd developed a glass substrate that it calls 'invisible glass'

Nippon Electric Glass Co Ltd developed a glass substrate that it calls "invisible glass" and exhibited it at FPD International 2011.

The company reduced the reflection of light so that light can hardly be seen on the glass substrate. When I stood in front of the glass substrate, it was difficult to recognize the existence of the substrate. Many other visitors were gazing at the invisible glass with surprised looks on their faces.

Nippon Electric Glass reduced the the reflection of light by forming an anti-reflection film on each of the front and back sides of the glass substrate. In the case of a normal glass substrate, about 92% of incoming light passes through it, and the rest 8% of the light is reflected on it. On the other hand, about 99.5% of incoming light passes through the new glass substrate. So, only about 0.5% of the light is reflected on it.

Nippon Electric Glass claims that the luminous reflectance of the substrate is 0.1% or lower. For the two anti-reflection films, the company used a total of 30 or more layers. And the thickness of each layer is controlled in increments of nanometers.

Marcolina Design Inc Introduces Marcolina Slate LLC. All that we have learned in print, interactive and video comes down to this. Unique publication solutions for iPad and Android Slate devices. Immersive Books, Memorable Sales Aids and Living Catalogs.

Marcolina Design Inc was founded 20 years ago, equipped with the best digital tools to support our passion for design, we quickly became recognized leaders in print design through our work for clients like Business Wire and Letraset. In 1993, we began exploring interactive design for clients such as The Discovery Channel and AOL. We took our interactive experience to the Web when it emerged as an important platform in 1995, expanding our client base to include Adobe and InterDigital. In 2000, we immersed ourselves in video design and since then have done many television titles for networks like NBC, TLC and National Geographic, as well as tradeshow video for Ricoh, Honeywell and AT&T.

Each turn of our business has grown organically out of our previous work. As we start our third decade, a new set of circumstances and digital tools are helping us combine these 3 skills – print, interactive, and video – and showcase them in one neat package. The iPad and other slate devices give us an opportunity to blend print elements such as typography, illustration, and layout with interactive strategies, all on a great platform for watching video. This site introduces Marcolina Slate, touchable design for mobile devices. Although the samples below represents our first tablet work, it is the result of our 20 years of multi- discipline design experience. Come back soon as our titles expand!
