How Google Images sees the world

January 20th, 2012 · Ric · No Comments

Google added the ability to search by uploading a picture and it would find similar ones. That’s exactly what Dutch artist Sebastien Schmieg has done 2,951 times to create the above video (I really hope he automated this). Starting with a transparent image Google first chooses an image of a galaxy then proceeds on a journey, choosing similar images and showing it see the world today.

Address Is Approximate. Google Street View Stop Motion

December 5th, 2011 · Ric · No Comments

A clever stop motion video with some great ideas by Tom Jenkins of Theory Films. What happens beyond the edges of the screen is just as interesting as what is being displayed.

Adobe CSS Shaders will transform the web

Adobe have been doubling down on the open web since the world decided it no longer loved Flash. The above video shows a regular Google Map that has been transformed using CSS3 shaders, a new proposal from Adobe for adding rich visual effects to HTML pages. What’s clever is if your web browser doesn’t support these effects you’ll get a non-styled map, or if you’re browsing on a phone which has a low battery they could be disabled without effecting the core functionality or actual content. These shaders are a little way off yet as they need to go through the web’s usual standardisation process but it’s exciting to see the progress that is being made. You’ll also need an up-to-browser to view them i.e. not IE!
