It’s totally my Japanese birthright to be able to fold paper in traditional Origiami shapes but…Seriously, check out the tedious, tiniest paper folds by Anja Markiewicz. Each paper is she uses is smaller than an inch in width. Patience is a virtue! Props!
Holler. I love tilt shifting, don’t you? Now you can tilt shift to your heart’s desire with this digicam available via photojojo’s website. Create tiny towns, miniature people, make cool shit stand out like that green gummy bear pic I took in the post below, or these clock watches I shot at Urban Outfitters:
Snag this like I’m going to at photojojo’s online store. The lens is permanently mounted on an angle, so you will always be able to gain the effects you’re looking for. And it also comes with vignetting and a 5MP sensor so you’ll always shoot like you have a toy camera in your hands. Plus: Did I mention you can make TILT SHIFT VIDEOS!! WTF! $149 bucks people. That’s it. GET IT!
It seems like once something gets established, someone will try to come along to copy it. If copycat is the best form of flattery, you can enjoy Instagram-esque filters on your facebook photographs.
The New York Times reports today that filters are all ready, they’re just waiting for the word, “Go” from Mr. Z who is stated as not wanting to release this feature until they have a few more filters created. The point? To draw users away from popular Apps such as Hipstamatic, Instagram, Toy Camera, etc. Also onto the “Filters” war: The new Apple iOS5 is rumored to have these cool filters installed directly into the iphone’s software.
Anything goes in a court of law. In a class action lawsuit from Apple to Samsung blaming the Korean based electronics company of copyright infringement on their new tablets, a lawyer representing Samsung in a statement said:
“In a clip from that film lasting about one minute, two astronauts are eating and at the same time using personal tablet computers,” the lawyer wrote, adding a Web link for watching the film on YouTube. As with the design claimed by Apple’s patent, “the tablet disclosed in the clip has an overall rectangular shape with a dominant display screen, narrow borders, a predominately flat front surface, a flat back surface (which is evident because the tablets are lying flat on the table’s surface), and a thin form factor.”
So what you’re saying is…Kubrick had the futuristic tablet vision first (the film dropped in 1968), therefore, really the patent belongs to him (and suggested Apple stole the basic design). See the screenshopt above? You be the judge.
