The Weird and Wonderful Phenomenon of the Lava Waterfall In Yosemite Park [Video]

Monday, February 20th, 2012

Every year, there’s a temporal waterfall seemingly flowing with lava down the East side of El Capitan, the massive granite formation in Yosemite Park, California. Only people at the right place and time are able to see it. More »

SandyStation interactive sandbox uses Kinect to make topography much more interesting (video)

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011
If you’re not really into using your Kinect experiment to launch your new startup or give your next presentation, let us offer another entertaining option. Two students at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen have created an interactive sandbox using Kinect, a projector, a computer and, of course, a box chock full of sand. The Xbox motion / depth detector is installed about two feet above the sand pit to measure each area that is carved out. Using a unique detection program, the topographical information is then transmitted to a data projector that renders an image in the sandpit — the image being a color based on the height or depth of what has been created. The devs have built out a few different projections. Hills that are constructed by the user are assigned a shade of green based on height, while troughs are given blue hues according to depth. What’s that? You built a hill and dug out the center? The projector sees that as a volcano, complete with spewing lava. If you’re tired of SimCity and want to actually get your hands dirty, take a peak at the video just past the break.

[Thanks, Mark]

Adobe’s iPad Photoshop apps now available [video]

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

In early April, Adobe took the wraps off of three new applications for the iPad — Color Lava, Eazel, and Nav — and they are all now available in the iTunes App Store. Adobe Eazel is priced at $4.99 and allows you to finger paint and then sync your artwork via Wi-Fi to Photoshop CS5. Nav is $1.99 and allows users to move and view some Photoshop windows, including works in progress or toolbars, on an iPad display. Color Lava is available for $2.99 and it turns your iPad into a palette for creating new colors and custom swatches that can be ported back into CS5. Hit the jump for videos of each app in action.

Adobe Photoshop update ushers in new era of iPad compatibility

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

We’ve been quite enamored with Adobe’s demos of iPad / Photoshop interactivity for some time, and now it looks as if we’ll finally be able to take the whole thing for a spin. As promised, the company today released Creative Suite 5.5, which offers, among other things, the ability to use tablets and smartphones to interact with the company’s flagship image editing software. While there’s still no word of apps for other platforms, Adobe has given Apple’s “magical” device a special namecheck, and those previously announced Eazel, Color Lava, and Nav apps will likely be hitting the App Store any minute now. Owners of the now ancient Photoshop CS5 will also be able to utilize the new feature through the recently released 12.0.4 update. Press releases after the break.

People of Lava’s Android TV gets tested, only your pocketbook feels the burn

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

When we heard an upstart named People of Lava were going to beat Google to the punch with an all-in-one TV set, we were confused, amused and skeptical all at the same time. Thankfully, Expert Reviews made a special trip to Sweden to see the company’s Android-powered television in action, and now we know what the unit actually does — it switches between an Android interface and a discrete TV mode without actually mixing the two in any appreciable fashion. Disappointing as that might seem, the publication rather enjoyed the Android side of things, which features not only the above widgets but also a full Chrome web browser, a TV app marketplace, spacious Google Maps page and more. Before you pull out your wallet, though, know that the edge-lit, LG-powered display is intended for the sub-lux crowd; when the Scandinavia ships in September, it’s expected to run as much as £2,000 (around $2,898) for the basic, 42-inch model — or roughly $2,700 more than just sticking with your existing TV and adding a Bonux box for Android functionality.
