Smart Stickers want to raise $75,000 to make $30 E Ink devices.

A new crowdfunding campaign at IndieGogo aims to raise $75,000 to produce Smart Stickers, a 40 grams real-time display that uses a 2.7" E Ink display and connects to any smartphone to display notifications, missed call, reminders or any other information you can think of via the API.

The Smart Sticker costs only $30, and if the campaign is successful, the first products will (hopefully) be available by February 2016.

Matrox Mura Powers Video Wall in Helsinki Mall.

The 14.4m-high LED digital signage installation outside the Kamppi Center shopping mall in Helsinki, Finland is powered by Matrox Mura MPX Series capture & display cards.

With metro and bus stations on the bottom floors, the mall, located in the Helsinki district, has a daily footfall of approximately 110,000 people. Craneworks, a local digital signage contractor, selected a 108m² Mura-powered digiLED outdoor screen that is three times the size of its predecessor. Craneworks uses a Mura MPX-4/4, four-input, four-output board, inside an HP Z600 system, to display content from various inputs, including a Mac mini media player, local DVI input, and live feed. Mura also scales and switches between content for different ad campaigns. “We needed to have a scaler that was able to crop portrait video and partially split it to two different outputs,” said Jukka Vuoristo, Craneworks project manager. “This was crucial, as we needed to handle PC and video signals through one device.” Mura MPX Series boards can be combined within single controller systems to meet specific channel requirements and drive video walls of different sizes for various applications. “We have a lot of special campaigns at Kamppi and we often get different kinds of live video feeds that we have to scale and place on the screen with different background materials,” said Sami Käyhkö, Craneworks managing director. “With Matrox Mura, we’re able to take advantage of scaling and input switching. We get the freedom we need from a programming standpoint.” Different control options are available from the Mura Network API, which helps in the development of third-party software options, to Matrox MuraControl for Windows for layout creation/switching and input management. “Our digital signage player software does basic layout and input control and we use MuraControl for Windows for remote layout management for special live event purposes,” said Vuoristo. The Kamppi Center has paid itself back in one year’s time featuring ads and social media feeds to interactive games.

Asus and Google’s Chromebit turns any monitor into a Chrome OS device.

Earlier this year, we heard of the partnership between Google and Asus to miniaturize Chrome OS in the form of an HDMI stick. Now the resulting device, dubbed the Chromebit, is available for $85

The 2.6-ounce stick looks like a slimmer version of the original Chromecast and comes in "tangerine orange" and "cacao black" (there's no word yet on the blue model shown in the press image above). Its small size limits its capabilities somewhat: the stick contains 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, and runs on a Rockchip ARM processor. It also has a single USB port, so while you can opt for Bluetooth-connected keyboards and mice to pair with the Chromebit, USB is available for one physically connected peripheral.

As Chromebooks continuously improve their specs—with many featuring Intel processors and at least 4GB of RAM—the Chromebit won't provide anywhere near the fastest Chrome OS experience you can get. However, what it lacks in power, it makes up in flexibility. Its purpose is to turn any monitor with a standard HDMI port into a makeshift Chromebook. You'll be able to access all things Google, including Drive and Docs, and any Web apps from the Chrome Web Store that a regular Chromebook or Chromebox could download. That includes things like Netflix and Hulu, which means the Chromebit has the potential to be an ultra-low-power, ultra-portable media system.

That portability is the main perk of the Chromebit. The $85 price tag is enticing, but you could spend another $50 and get one of the cheaper Chromebooks. The small size and decent specs of the Chromebit make it a more convenient option for those who want to throw a device in their bags and know they can turn nearly any display into an Internet-based work (or play) station.

According to reports, the $85 Chromebit will be sold on Amazon, Fry’s, and Newegg (but, interestingly, not Best Buy for now), and will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the UK.

Sign of the times as digital billboards declared safe.


DIGITAL billboards are no more dangerous than other forms of roadside signs.

An Australia-first study by the shows concerns the on-trend form of advertising, which uses LED screens to broadcast still electronic advertising, are misplaced. Outdoor Media Association CEO Charmaine Moldrich said the organisation, which represents outdoor media display companies and related business, said researchers used hi-tech equipment to monitor driver reactions to digital and traditional billboards as well as on-premise business signs. Twenty-nine road-users wore eye-tracking glasses while driving along a 14.6km stretch of Gympie Road in Brisbane that took them past all three forms of outdoor advertising. The glasses measured how long the drivers' eyes looked at the signs as they passed by. The car was also equipped with a tracker that measured its movement including moving side to side.

"The research had to be based on an Australian real-world driving situation," Ms Moldrich said. "We wanted to ascertain whether the third-party signs distracted people more than the all the other signage that was on the road. "We were going to do the research on Parramatta Road in Sydney because that was one of the most cluttered environments in terms of on-premise signs. "But we moved it to Brisbane because Queensland had more digital inventory than any other state. The study found the drivers, on average, looked the signs for less than a second, which experts consider to be the minimum perception reaction time needed to respond to an unexpected event. "What we were trying to test was 'Is there any particular sign type that drivers look at in a way that is unsafe during the driving task?'," Ms Moldrich said. "What we found was that in the presence of digital, static and on-premise signs, drivers were by and large looking at the road - in fact 78-79% of the time. "We also checked what was happening in the car, and found that drivers maintained a safe headway (they were not tailgating) in the presence of all of those signage types. This was a really positive result."

LG installs world’s biggest OLED TV display.

LG has installed the world’s largest OLED displays at South Korea’s Incheon International Airport. Created with French design firm Wilmotte & Associés, the huge panels can be found in the main terminal of the airport.

Each display stands 13m high and 8m across, and is comprised of 140 55-inch curved OLED screens. LG says the two curved panels will feature a variety of content to show off the capabilities of OLED tech, so expect a looping firework display. LG says that because every pixel in an OLED display emits its own light, there’s no need for heavy LED backlighting, making both of the airport displays light and flexible, allowing them to hang from the ceiling with minimal support.

“These OLED displays perfectly complement the advanced technology that our airport has become known for,” enthuses Park Wan-su, president and CEO at Incheon International Airport. “We are always eager to showcase to the millions of travellers every year the cutting-edge technology that originates from Korea. OLED is a prime example of that.”

“While the world’s largest OLED sign is certainly something to be proud of, we are more excited about the opportunity to introduce travellers from across the world to the magic of OLED,” adds Ro Se-Yong, senior vice president and head of the business-to-business solutions at LG Electronics. “The benefits of OLED technology can only be viewed, they cannot be described with mere words.

The marketplace of virtual reality headsets is starting to become more clear: Oculus and the HTC Vive will be major top-tier players, while Samsung Gear and other low-cost phone mounts like Noon VR will target the casual viewer. However, in the realm of augmented reality, the Microsoft HoloLens has been the only mainstream contender. Until now.

Asus, the PC hardware manufacturer, is planning on releasing an augmented reality headset as early as 2016, according to CNET. While the exact price of the headset is still unknown, a low-cost offering could change the landscape of augmented reality, and bring it to people who might not be able to afford the premium HoloLens.

"It should be next year when we come out with a product," Shen said during an earnings webcast Wednesday. “We think AR will be very important for people's lives."

The developer’s version of HoloLens will cost $3000, and comments made in October by Asus chairman Jonney Shih indicate that their headset would cost less than Microsoft’s offering.

Asus has been known for taking risks with design in the past, as well as offering low-cost products that operate within the Microsoft ecosystem. You could even argue that the company has always been a bit ahead of their time. Their Transformer series could be seen as a predecessor to the iPad Pro, although not nearly as refined, and the PadFone, while ill-conceived, has the idea of a unified system that Microsoft is trying to push with their Continuum.

That being said, the company is well-known for making dependable, and professional-level gaming monitors, laptops, and desktop PCs.

We don’t know much about Asus’ augmented reality, like its price, release time, or even resolution. But we also don’t know much about the HoloLens, or augmented reality in general. Carefully curated demonstrations have sustainably hyped the product, but until Q1 2016 when the HoloLens developers’ kit ships, we won’t know how the technology stands.

The new Samsung's Gear VR.

Samsung said its improved, cheaper Gear VR would arrive sometime in November, and it's clearly making good on its promise. Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for the virtual reality headset -- plunk down $100 and you should get your Gear VR on November 20th. It's not quite as low-cost as it sounds, since you'll need one of Samsung's 2015 flagship phones (such as a Galaxy S6 variant or the Galaxy Note 5) to make it work. Still, it might be worth the investment if you've been itching to try modern VR at home.

When Samsung announced the newest edition of its mobile virtual reality headset Gear VR, created in partnership with Oculus, it was less about hardware innovation and more of a statement: VR is consumer-ready. Yes, the headset's overall weight has been significantly reduced and its touchpad's been redesigned for easier access. But it's the combination of its $99 price point, range of compatible (and current) Samsung smartphones and multimedia content like Netflix that could finally usher this new medium into households everywhere. "Virtual reality that's accessible to consumers is still very young and so it was all about developing the ecosystem," said Jim Willson, director of immersive products and VR at Samsung, of GearVR's watershed moment. "We had to make sure there was enough content, both in terms of video content ... and on the gaming side."

bitdrones and Displaydrones - interactive-quadcopters-allow-for-programmable-matter-explorations.

Professor Vertegaal believes his BitDrones invention is the first step towards creating interactive self-levitating programmable matter — materials capable of changing their 3D shape in a programmable fashion, using swarms of tiny quadcopters. Possible applications: real-reality 3D modeling, gaming, molecular modeling, medical imaging, robotics, and online information visualization. “BitDrones brings flying programmable matter closer to reality,” says Vertegaal. “It is a first step towards allowing people to interact with virtual 3D objects as real physical objects.” Vertegaal and his team at the Human Media Lab created three types of BitDrones, each representing self-levitating displays of distinct resolutions.

  • PixelDrones 
  • ShapeDrones 
  • DisplayDrones

DisplayDrones are fitted with a curved flexible high-resolution touchscreen, a forward-facing video camera and Android smartphone board. Remote users could move around locally through a DisplayDrone with Skype for telepresence. A DisplayDrone can automatically track and replicate all of the remote user’s head movements, allowing a remote user to virtually inspect a location and making it easier for the local user to understand the remote user’s actions.

VR Project - Roller Coaster In The Shopping Mall - 4 Player Experience

Virtual reality based roller coaster experiences are the most widely known examples of the concept. There are some demos that you can download and try with oculus rift headsets. In Codemodeon we wanted to create a unique roller coaster experience. In collaboration with Cevahir Shopping Mall in Istanbul, we started a virtual reality project from scratch. We 3D modelled whole shopping mall by using architectural drawings. Then we designed a thrilling roller coaster ride which travels inside the 3D model of Cevahir. To improve the excitement and fun we added some details along the path. Crashing through the glasses, watching drones fly above you carrying the logo of Cevahir are the examples of those funny details. At the center of the base level of the shopping mall, a large roller coaster decoration is constructed. A 3x3 video wall is placed behind the decoration to attract people and let them watch the experience. Codemodeon is an Istanbul based creative technology company specializing in game development, virtual reality, installation-based experiences and human computer interaction.

Hamburg hat Europas größte Medienfassade.

Das Klubhaus St. Pauli ist im Inneren Hamburgs neuer Heimathafen für Livemusik, Entertainment und urbanes Arbeiten. Draußen wartet es mit Europas größter interaktiver Medienfassade auf. Die rund 700 qm große digitale Fläche bietet Raum für Bewegtbild-Kampagnen, redaktionelle Inhalte und künstlerische Visuals der Kunst- und Kulturbetriebe des neu eröffneten Klubhaus St. Pauli und des Bremer Gestaltungskünstlers Urbanscreen.

What a great event - Kickoff by the German Rock-Star Udo Lindenberg at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg. Our ONLYGLASS MEDIAFACADE is integrated in the lift of the Klubhaus and in this way part of a worldwide unique example of modern mediatecture.

Die Medienfassade selbst ist transparent. Die Gäste der Clubs und Büromitarbeiter können wie durch eine vorgehängte Jalousie vom Innern des Gebäudes nach draußen sehen. Der Lift des Gebäudes, der zum Panorama-Restaurant in der sechsten Etage führt, wurde mit elf Verbundglasscheiben mit eingebetteten LEDs, verkleidet. Die Onlyglass GmbH produzierte und installierte diesen hochauflösenden Teil der Medienfassade.

Vermarktet wird die Wand von Posterscope, die zum Start im September 2015 Mondelēz International (Milka) und Sonos als Werbepartner gewinnen konnte. Simon Kloos, Geschäftsleiter, Posterscope Deutschland erklärt: „Mit Interaktion und einem Mix aus redaktionellen, künstlerischen und kommerziellen Inhalten machen wir die Werbefläche auf der Medienfassade zum Event. Offline-Aktionen am Spielbudenplatz davor und im Klubhaus St. Pauli dahinter sorgen zusätzlich für eine besonders hohe Aufmerksamkeit.“.
