E-reader.


Bron; www.fan.tv
Een aantal jaren geleden verschenen de eerste E-readers, elektronische apparaten om boeken of kranten te lezen. Inmiddels zijn er vele soorten beschikbaar, zijn ze steeds beter geworden, maar vooral ook stukken goedkoper. Doe een kleine investering en bespaar fors op de kosten van boeken.

Een E-reader gebruikt een speciale techniek om de pagina op het scherm te toveren. Het scherm bestaat uit miljoenen kleine bolletjes, ieder ongeveer zo groot als een mensenhaar. In deze bolletjes zitten nog veel kleinere bolletjes, de zogenaamde pigmentdeeltjes. De ene helft van die deeltjes is zwart, de andere helft wit. De zwarte deeltjes zijn negatief geladen, de witte deeltjes zijn positief geladen. De techniek in de E-reader zorgt er voor dat bij het tonen van een pagina bij een deel van de bolletjes zwarte pigment boven komt en bij de overige bolletjes witte pigment. Zo worden letters, woorden, zinnen en dus bladzijden gevormd.



De E-reader gebruikt alleen stroom bij het wisselen van een pagina, het tonen van de pagina kost geen energie. Hierdoor is een E-reader tot wel honderd keer zuiniger met energie dan een LCD-scherm.

E-reader gekocht? Dan wordt het ook tijd om E-books aan te schaffen. Het aanschaffen van een E-book is niet alleen heel eenvoudig (thuis via de computer) maar bespaart je ook een hoop geld. Gemiddeld is de prijs van een E-book zo’n 25% lager!
De webshop Ebook.nl heeft zich gespecialiseerd in de verkoop van E-books. Van bijna ieder boek is ook een inkijk-exemplaar te downloaden, zodat je net als in de winkel even er door heen kunt bladeren voor je tot aanschaf over gaat.
Betekent de komst van het E-book het einde van de papieren boeken. Zo’n vaart zal het waarschijnlijk niet lopen. De Engelse komiek (en schrijver, acteur en presentator) Stephen Fry heeft op dit gebied een duidelijke en treffende vergelijking:

"Books are no more threatened by e-books, than stairs were by elevators"

Signage campaign opens virtual doors to Mercedes van.

Commuters on the Berlin U-Bahn (underground) can use their car keys to interact with digital displays. A recent Mercedes-Benz advertising campaign added radiowave sensors that recognise the signals from car keys and trigger certain actions on the projected displays at Friedrichstrasse station. The “Key to Viano” campaign allows commuters to open the doors to Mercedes’ new van, the Viano, to reveal different groups of people within.

WallDecaux Berlin installed twelve digital advertising displays at the underground station for the campaign that is designed to show how much room the Mercedes van has.

If a participant triggers "the chauffeur clip" they are escorted to a Mercedes Viano waiting outside the station to be escorted to their destination.

Lukas Lindemann Rosinski implemented the interactive campaign on Wall AG's digital advertising displays.

Alfa Bank 4D

On 4th September, Moscow City Day, the capital hosted a unique visual event: Alfa-Show 4D, a magnificent video projection show on Sparrow Hills dedicated to Alfa-Bank’s 20th anniversary. For half an hour, the facade of the main building of Moscow State University became a giant screen 25,500 square metres in size, as a multitude of spectators (nearly 800,000 people who attended the celebration) witnessed a strikingly beautiful audiovisual show.

The show was designed by world-renowned director David Atkins, an esteemed public event organiser, and his company, David Atkins Enterprises (DAE). The technical implementation of the show’s visual element was handled by ETC

As with their previous works, ETC’s team of professionals used powerful high-intensity Christie 3-chip DLP projectors. A total of 81 projectors were used for the Alfa-Show 4D: a record in today’s video mapping industry. To cover the entire facade, including its lateral surfaces, fifteen Christie Roadie HD+30K projectors with luminous flux intensity of 30,000 NSI lumens and 66 Christie Roadster S+20K projectors with luminous flux intensity of 20,000 ANSI lumens were divided into several groups and installed in towers erected specifically for the show.

What Children can Teach us About Simplicity, Intuition & Curiosity.

It is simple – if you want to make a touch screen anything, for it to be successful, the experience must be intuitive. And if you want to make it intuitive, here’s a few suggestions:1. Look at what Apple has done
2. Look at your mobile device(s)
3. Look at your favorite websites
4. Watch children interact with them
That’s right. Children. The key to making successful touch screen experiences might just lie in the children.
Watch how my daughter (6) works through this experience that we came across at the Dallas Zoo:



And, now, watch how my son (3) works through the same experience:



Both, intuitively know what to do – press a picture or a button. In my daughter’s case (who has had computer training), her first instinct is to look for the pointer and drag it to the button or picture. Im my son’s case (who has only had phone/iPad training), his first instinct is to press the colorful thing(s) on the screen. This particular experience was laid out in a very simple format and flow. Simplicity certainly helps.

I found it interesting that they both instantly wanted to interact with these screens. I did see a few adults interacting with the screens, but the children that I saw just wanted to touch it and play with it. I think they might liken anything touch screen to games, but their curiosity drives their wish to interact.

Isn’t it funny that our curiosity becomes much more selective as we grow older, specifically around new technology? How can we capture the curiosity of a child for an everyday, grown-up experience? We have to continue getting creative, continue pushing. But we also need to get back to basics and create things that are simple and intuitive.

Lumus' OE-31 optical engine.


After showing off a duo of wearable, see-through displays at CES, Lumus is back with a second optical engine -- one that could be used in any style of frames, from prescription glasses to ski goggles. Available in binocular and monocular configurations, the tiny OE-31 sensor weighs just 10 grams (.35 ounces), allowing it to accommodate a variety of form factors besides your run-of-the mill (and quite dorky-looking) 3D glasses. As always, Lumus' hook is its ability to combine head up content, augmented reality and see-through displays, though this time around the sensor allows for a 19-degree field of view and a full-color, 640 x 360 picture. Though that's not as impressive as the 720p, 3D-capable frames on offer at CES, the company argues it should be adequate for reading text, particularly since the viewing experience will be comparable to staring at a 40-inch screen from 10 feet away.

'Google komt met augmented reality-bril'

Bron; www.nu.nl
Google werkt aan een augmented reality-bril waarmee gebruikers realtime informatie krijgen over personen en gebouwen die zij zien aan de hand van een kleine camera.
Dat schrijft the New York Times woensdag. Geruchten over de bril kwamen eerder al via diverse andere blogs naar buiten.
De Amerikaanse krant heeft nu met diverse mensen gesproken die betrokken zijn bij het project binnen Google. Zij willen allemaal anoniem blijven, maar vertellen volgens the New York Times hetzelfde verhaal.
De bril zou eind 2012 op de markt moeten komen voor een prijs vergelijkbaar met die van een smartphone, dus ergens tussen de 250 en 600 euro.

De bril is uitgerust met een camera die alles wat de gebruiker ziet analyseert. Via diensten die Google al in huis heeft, kan informatie weergegeven worden. Via Google Goggles krijgen gebruikers informatie over gebouwen, kunst of foto’s die zij bekijken
Ook de locatiedienst Latitude zou verwerkt worden in de bril en mogelijk ook informatie van Google+, het sociale netwerk van de zoekgigant. Volgens de bronnen is het bedrijf nog wel aan het uitzoeken hoe het zit met privacy.
Google wil dat mensen op straat weten als zij gescand worden door een bril van Google.



Geruchten over de bril die uitgerust is met Android kwamen eerder dus al naar buiten, maar de bronnen konden meer details onthullen. Vorige week nog schreef de krant The San Jose Mercury News dat Google een testlab aan het bouwen is op de campus. Daar zou onder meer gewerkt worden aan hele precieze optische technologie.
Volgens de bronnen van the New York Times moet de bril de bewegingen van de oogbal kunnen volgen en leert het bij gebruik de wensen van een persoon kennen zodat alleen informatie weergegeven wordt waar de gebruiker echt behoefte aan heeft

Measure Impact of Glasses Free 3D Campaign.

Dimenco and Tilburg University have published the findings of their study on the impact of glasses free 3D on a digital signage campaign.

The study is based on a trial undertaken in December 2011 for Red Bull at Exxon Petrol Stations in the Netherlands. Three display racks were placed at three different petrol stations: one was fitted with an auto-stereoscopic 3D screen, another with a regular 2D screen, and the third without any form of screen.

Over 15,000 eye contacts were tracked during the campaign in order to determine the average time spent in front of each display. The result: a customer spends an average of 44% longer time in front of a rack with a glasses free 3D display (10.92 seconds) than in front of one with a 2D screen (7.60 seconds).
Further, the study showed a sales increase of 8.5% of Red Bull cans in the shop with the 3D screen. (Any increase in sales via the 2D screen wasn’t specified).

Digital signage as architectural wall coverings.

What about using digital signage as art? Or decoration?

Digital signage displays aren't just for branding, promotion or advertising, and the market for their use as architectural adornments appears to be growing. And at least one digital signage display firm is making its play for a share of that market.

Expanding on the success of its Planar Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall, Planar has introduced Mosaic, a video wall system aimed at the burgeoning architectural wall coverings market and featuring three different LCD display tiles, including a truly square tile. Tiles can be mounted in any position relative to each other, or individually – at almost any angle.

Planar said the Mosaic was designed specifically for the fast-growing global architectural wall coverings market, expected to be $26 billion in 2015, according to the Global Industry Analysts.
A large-scale prototype exhibit of the Planar Mosaic video wall system debuted yesteday, Feb. 16, and will run through March 30 at the Cristin Tierney Gallery in New York City in conjunction with video artist Yorgo Alexopoulos. And Planar will unveil Mosaic at the Digital Signage Expo 2012, March 7 – 8 in Las Vegas

Swing through the stars.

When you’re a kid, your garden swing is the closest you can get to the feeling of flying. And Lab212 has taken that feeling one step further with their Starfield swing installation that lets you rocket through the universe instead.

Think of it as a more interactive version of that star field screensaver. Behind the swing sits a Kinect sensor which tracks your motion, moving the star field in unison so it feels like you’re passing through it. And so it doesn’t feel like you’re not making any progress, the star field moves twice as fast when you swing forwards as it does when you swing back.
For added effect, the star field can also be rendered in 3D using the simple anaglyph approach requiring the swinger to wear red and blue glasses

Fujitsu zet hoog in op smartphones en tablets in Europa.


Bron; www.nu.nl
Fujitsu zal dit jaar flink wat tablets en smartphones op de Europese markt gaan uitbrengen. Het bedrijf wil marktaandeel van Samsung en Apple overnemen. Dat laat het bedrijf weten aan the Financial Times.

Fujitsu zal zich met de mobiele producten gaan richten op de high-end markt en wil de dominantie van Apple en Samsung doorbreken. Dit jaar wordt ook een uitbreiding in het Europese aanbod van de Chinese bedrijven Huawei en ZTE verwacht.
De Aziatische bedrijven willen graag een graantje meepikken van de Europese markt en richten zich niet meer alleen op goedkope producten.

Zo zal Fujitsu zijn telefoons uitrusten met het mobiele betaalsysteem NFC en de mogelijkheid van 4G-netwerken gebruik te maken. Daarnaast kunnen de smartphones beveiligd worden door middel van een vingerafdruk.
Het Japanse bedrijf wil in de komende drie tot vijf jaar een marktaandeel behalen van minimaal 10 procent. The Financial Times heeft het over ‘dubbele cijfers’. De eerste producten zullen getoond worden tijdens Mobile World Congress. Dit congress vindt eind februari plaats in Barcelona.

World’s Largest IMAX Screen Gets Replaced.


The Darling Harbour IMAX theater in Sydney, Australia is considered at the world’s largest screen. The screen measures 97 feet tall and 117 feet wide. It has also been in service for over 16 years. Recently, the theater decided to change the screen for an upgraded version. The new screen took almost a whole year, $250000, and 31 riggers to replace. Recently, the screen was strung and mounted on the rigging, but it won’t be able to show videos for at least a a month at most. The screen still needs to be stretched tight to prevent wrinkling and then receive a coat of silver paint in order to enhance the projector’s brightness and color saturation.



The screen is made from a material that was described as "not dissimilar from the vinyl material used for ute covers". It took 31 riggers to get it from the floor to the ceiling.

IMAX Australia told us that the screen is being replaced due to the fact that the old screen was at the end of its life. The new screen is designed to reflect brighter images. By doing so, the 3D experience — which is made dimmer by watchers wearing glasses — will improve.

Timberland Re-imagines Storytelling Within the Retail Experience.

Together with Timberland’s in-house global creative services group, Apologue Experience Design Firm has developed an intelligent interactive experience within the retail fixtures that intrigues and engages the customer throughout the store, inspiring them to discover their great outdoors with Timberland gear, technologies and brand storytelling.

TIMBERLAND RE-IMAGINES STORYTELLING WITHIN THE RETAIL EXPERIENCE .

An interactive test module has been designed as part of Timberland’s new store concept launched in the Fall of 2011 in Stratford, UK. Located in juxtaposition to merchandise and environmental graphics, the digital experience creates an interaction between product and digital innovation, transforming the typical retail touch point into a more meaningful communication tool that delivers relevant information and emotional branding to Timberland’s global consumer.

Apologue, in collaboration with Automata Studios, Iron Claw and Audio, Video & Controls, designed a custom, open-source cloud-based HTML5 system that is able to dynamically retrieve remote data and create real- time, uniquely generated storytelling at every interface touch point, in every store, at any location around the world. The systems allows Timberland to add and tag assets for immediate integration into the storytelling all around the world in real-time, while being managed and monitored from a central location.

The interactive touch points transcend traditional retail models by transforming the shopping experience into a dialog between the brand and the customer. The system is uniquely designed to adapt, capture and learn from each store globally, providing unique, location-specific content to individual stores and inviting customers to provide meaningful feedback about Timberland products and initiatives that can then be converted into meaningful data for the brand.

This unique interactive system is being tested in key store locations in Singapore, the UK and the US.

LG Cinema 3D TV met 1mm rand.



Op de CES in Las Vegas zal LG deze week een 3D TV tonen met een beeldrand van slechts 1 mm. Een smalle beeldrand kan het comfort bij het kijken naar 3D materiaal aanzienlijk vergroten dus hier geldt: hoe dunner hoe beter. Het nieuwe Cinema scherm ontwerp toont volgens LG duidelijk de vooruitgang in de techniek.
De randen van 3D TV’s zijn de laatste tijd steeds maar smaller geworden tot het niveau waarop ze nauwelijks nog opvallen. Bij de nieuwe 3D TV’s zullen ook nieuwe 3D brillen komen voor de 2012 modellen. Die brillen verschijnen in 3 modellen die zo’n 20 procent lichter zijn dan de voorgaande versies. Daardoor valt het dragen van de 3D bril nog minder op.
LG gebruikt de 3D technologie ook voor de zogenaamde Dual Play functie waarbij twee gamers op hetzelfde scherm ieder een ander beeld zien.
Dat kan met een 3D scherm en speciale Dual Play brillen. Dat maakt gamen op een dergelijk groot scherm heel wat plezieriger dan met het tot nu toe gebruikte split-screen formaat. Met 3D Sound Zooming worden bewegende objecten ook nog eens op de juiste plaats in het geluidsbeeld gepositioneerd.

De Kiosk.

There are over 1 million self-service machines in use today
86% of consumers say that they are more likely to do business with companies that offer self-service.
97% of consumers said they would use a combination of self-service channels to handle a transaction.



Airports and malls kiosks are another example of how automated retail is great for consumers. Suddenly realize you forgot your camera on that once-in-a-lifetime trip to South America? Don’t want to wait in line to buy cosmetics? No problem. Leading brands and retailers are taking advantage of the automated retail channel to provide convenience and new products to consumers. Products such as Apple iPods, digital cameras, apparel, cosmetics and cell phone accessories are all now available at automated retail stores.

The pioneer of the automated retail channel is ZoomSystems. ZoomSystems is leading the revolution in automated retail with more than one million transactions and over 1000 ZoomShops across the U.S., Europe and Japan.

PayPal trials QR code mobile shopping.


PayPal is using smartphone-crazy Singapore to trial an interesting initiative which allows phone owners to buy goods on the go using a QR code reader application.
The experiment is taking place at 15 stations on the country’s metro system (SMRT) where the eBay-owned payment company is showcasing gifts from eight retailers at reduced prices for Valentine’s Day, as AllThingsD reports.
Singapore’s underground is one of the few that boasts full mobile and data coverage while the country also has city-wide free WiFi, which are key to this test. To get involved in the trial, smartphone owners must first download the PayPal QR code reader which allows them to scan products. Once scanned, items can be purchased by logging into PayPal (of course) or by providing credit cards details.
Mobile payments are growing rapidly in the US, however Asia remains largely untouched for a number of reasons. Not only are smartphones still a growing niche in many parts of the reason, but credit card ownership — and even bank account usage — is low too.
Singapore is a standout case in Southeast Asia, and it was once the capital of iOS devices; boasting more per person than anywhere else in the world. The surge of Apple worldwide may have seen it lose the record, but nonetheless smartphone usage remains high there and it has high levels of Internet connectivity and fast speeds to boot.
Singapore has been the setting for trials around contactless payments, NFC-based commerce and other such pilots, and we’ll be keeping an eye on this QR code trial with interest.

samsung levert weer schermen aan Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

Bron; www.hd-technieuws.net
Samsung Electronics Benelux is na een Europese aanbesteding gekozen door Amsterdam Airport Schiphol als exclusieve leverancier van schermen voor de komende drie jaar. Op deze schermen wordt onder meer vluchtinformatie aan passagiers getoond. De nieuwe LCD-displays maken gebruik van energiezuinige Edge LED-technologie.
Bij de aanbesteding van de nieuwe schermen is, naast economisch verbruik, ook gekeken naar de manier waarop de schermen worden geproduceerd, geleverd, geïnstalleerd en gerecycled. De huidige schermen zullen worden afgevoerd en verkocht of duurzaam ontmanteld door de stichting ITdonations. De opbrengst gaat naar UNICEF, een organisatie die zich wereldwijd inzet voor de rechten van kinderen en waarmee Schiphol de komende 3 jaar nauw samenwerkt. In totaal worden ruim 2.500 schermen op Schiphol vervangen door de nieuwe generatie Samsung LCD-schermen

Citibank Time-Lapsed Video Wall At JFK.

It’s another example of effectively using the long runs of digital screens in a concourse at JFK’s American Airlines International Terminal in New York. This is the same run of screens, I think, that went in five years ago and were first used to hump the then-new Microsoft Vista software.

Here’s the description of this effort:

“Orbital” is like a flying dream set in 3 cities. It places viewers at the center of cosmopolitan locations, slowly and delicately rotating across 40 HD screens in the American Airlines International Terminal. The piece was designed to work in relationship with the viewer’s movement through a long hallway, filling their field of view with vast time lapsed urban panoramas moving through space to create the illusion of hovering at a dreamlike speed through a rotating cityscape. The audio was carefully crafted, inspired by the likes of Steve Reich, to create a forward momentum and almost hypnotic pulsing effect while incorporating subtle washes of urban soundscapes.

The pieces were shot with a motion control time lapse rig in New York, Paris and Barcelona, creating enormous sequences of photography that were then stitched and choreographed together at the Mill.

The client is Citibank and its airline credit card, and the agency is Publicis. Very cool work. Very big budget. I like the case study aspect to this, and wonder why more projects are not captured in ways that explain what was done and how it was viewed.

'Live Park' AR theme park.

A media company specialising in AR technologies has developed a “4D theme park” that is being dubbed as the most advanced, high-tech theme park ever created. The attraction utilises RFID wristbands and Kinect sensors to identify, track and interact with visitors. Live Park 4D, located at the Korea International Exhibition Centre (Kintex), is packed with visual interactive exhibits that utilise massive touchscreens, 3D video, holographic displays and augmented reality.

Guests can create avatar versions of themselves, allowing them to enter the virtual world of the theme park.

The attraction sprawls over a space of nearly 1,000m² and comprises 65 attractions including a virtual "hologram" performance by a Korean B-boy crew and a 360° stereoscopic cinema.

Lunar Face pavilion provides atmospheric, immersive areas which respond to movement and sound. It is an example of how Live Park also aims to combine art with attraction. Developers have placed art installations alongside interactive exhibits, sometimes blurring the lines between the two.

Almost all exhibits feature an interactive element, often allowing visitors’ avatars to perform alongside "holograms". The area can also be transformed into a nigh-time entertainment venue with live performances and DJs.

projectiondesign bridge simulator.

Bron; http://www.projectiondesign.com/


Rugged, reliable and realistic, with low total cost of ownership; these were the projector requirements and deliverables of the huge projectiondesign upgrade of the two simulation bridges at the Marine Training Centre in Singapore.

Swire Marine Training Centre in Singapore, operated by Swire Pacific Offshore, is the first facility of its kind in Asia. Swire’s Marine Training Centre has the ability to fully simulate the working environment of an offshore support vessel providing training in bridge management, anchor handling, dynamic positioning, and engine-room operations.

Upgrading with in total 24 units of projectiondesign F82 sx+ DLP®projectors and WB1920 warp and blend processors, two simulation bridges now reap the benefits of a more stable light output and an easier maintainable system over time – and that at a much lower cost of ownership than the previous installation

Make your product get noticed with Transparent Displays.

Transparent Displays are an amazing product that can be used in all industry areas as an efficient and innovative tool for delivering your message to your target audiences.


These displays are mostly applied to store windows and showcase events, but can be used in many other ways, the possibilities are endless.
The person can look right through the display like glass, being able to see what is being displayed behind, the product itself, and the animated message on the display. These combination is more impactful than a 3D display, once that the material and the virtual are working together.The transparent displays consume 90% less electricity compared with a conventional display.
The displays can be delivered in different sizes, as a glass or mirror and with or without interactive multi touch. You will not be disappointed
