Moullinex Catalina – 3D music video made with Kinect

Under - Industrial Design, Inspiration, Media, Music, Technology

We have seen Kinect’s untapped potential. This music video for Catalina is done with Kinect, Kinect Library for Processing, Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects. It looks like that the device is now becoming an additional tool for special effects besides CGI.

The detailed production walkthrough can be found here – even the original source files are available if one would want to venture into this.

One winter’s day in Black Park

Under - Art, Inspiration, My Musings, Nature, Photography, Photolog

Some photographs from Black Park Lake that I took one winter’s morning. The park offers a different kind of experience in winter when it is easier to get lost into the woods.

Black Park is 530 acres of woodland and heathland just outside London with a centre-piece lake in Wexham, Buckinghamshire, England. The site is next to Pinewood Film Studios and has been used for many films and TV productions such as James Bond, Harry Potter and Sleepy Hollow to name a few.

Keeping it real simple: NoteSlate

Under - Industrial Design, Technology

It might be rather disappointing for those who have been looking for a product gap between eReaders and iPad-like devices to market something new. If such a gap ever existed, it now has been filled by NoteSlate! Just wait till June this year and you could be a proud owner of a $99 grayscale tablet.

NoteSlate is low cost tablet device with true one color display, real paper look design, long life battery (180h !), together with very handy usage and very simple and helpful interface for pen and paper. This easy, compact and portable gadget is used anywhere you want to make any notes, drafts, sketches, any ideas for future reference. Paper for everyone! Write a note and check it later, save it, or delete it. Maybe send it after. Just one color is enough to express the basics. Keep your life simple.

Contrary to ‘… Just one color is enough to express the basics’, NoteSlate is going to be available in a variety of colors and even a multicolor version going to be released at some point in future. The A4 size tablet going to have simple three button interface to save, delete and view. Any ordinary pen/pencil would work just fine besides its own.

So, what’s the concept behind this low cost gadget?

The NoteSlate is trying to define the product itself, archetype, electronic paper. We are trying to define this archetype for general public, bit against their today`s usual network expectations. It`s active, creative, you cannot browse the web, networks, read, watch, play… the Internet, social networks, connecting everywhere are just beginning, part of the contemporary future. Although with NoteSlate, you will have always something, what you can be in. We don`t want to be overwhelmed with technology. The biggest simplicity is enough to express the basics, to explain the idea.

Am I impressed? Hmmmmmm … yes, may be. A notebook for $99 is a bit expensive but we like to buy gadgets like these often. I might not be that interested in this tablet as I already have one with all the bells and whistles, however, I do see a great potential for this 13 inch matte monochrome eInk display tablet within education industry.

Doodling and drawing to Graphic Design

Under - Design, Illustration, Typography

Rupinder Singh is a passionate graphic designer from India. He graduated in Media Science from NSHM School of Media and Communication with specialization in Advertisement and Public Relations. Rupinder works freelance and runs a design blog 365 Concepts where he shares his latest projects and inspirations.

My interest in graphic designing began back in my childhood days, when I was fascinated by the amazing world of design. I used to check magazine covers, movie posters and print advertisements and always wondered how they came up with such interesting ideas and designs. Doodling and drawing were always in my list of hobbies. One of my earliest rendezvous with art and design was at the age of 5, when I was awarded by the certificate of merit in ‘All-India Camel Colouring Contest, 1992’.

Along the way I realized that graphic designing is the most effective and powerful way of expressing ideas, thoughts and views.
