Immersive 360° Videos With Motion

Monday, January 28th, 2008

360° images have come a long way in quality since the old days of Quicktime VR, but they never really did hit the kind of popularity you may come to expect from a 3D-ish approach. And really, maybe it’s just because they are static and thus mostly boring. That may change however. Immersive Media has specialized themselves on 360° films with a twist: the material is not static, but actual film footage playing. It does make for a much more interesting experience:

The Problem With Pictograms…

Sunday, January 13th, 2008

The Problem With Pictograms…is that, when not thought out perfectly, they are open to interpretation. In the case of safety signs, the outcome can be disastrous. safenow.org demonstrates this wonderfully in a hilarious parody of our fear-mongering friends at US Homeland Security. Remember: If you are sprayed with an unknown substance, stand and think about it instead of seeing a doctor.

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

Alright, so I don’t really like to put too many flash videos on the front page at once, but I thought this video is absolutely brilliant. Old school pixel art via dice.

Lovely song as well! Fujiya & Miyagi – Ankle Injuries

Here’s a funny music video for the weekend, Lodger‘s song “I Love Death”. They seem to have a pretty coherent visual style es well, if you check their other videos on YouTube.
