Laptop Prototype Design

Filed under: Design,Digital Tech,Photography,Video — Jarvo @ 9:23 am

This ain’t nothin’ but a dream right now, but it sure is cool! With all of the innovation blah, blah, blah¬†hype from Steve Jobs, I’m pretty sure folks were expecting something like this with the iPad. It’s a reminder that innovation isn’t designed with dollars in mind. As the Buddha states; “Excellent work cannot be done thinking about the reward”.

From, Schlagheck-Design – “The device of the flexible display allows a new concept in notebook design growing out of the traditional bookformed laptop into unfurling and convolving portable computer.
By virtue of the OLED-Display technology and a multi touch screen the utility of a laptop computer with its weight of a mini-notebook and screen size of 13 inch easily transforms into the graphics tablet, which with its 17-inch flat screen can be also used as a primary monitor.
On top of everything else all computer utilities from power supply through the holding belt to an interactive pen are integrated in Rolltop. This is really an all-in-one gadget.”

On Location with Michael Grecco

Filed under: How-To,Observations,Photography,Video — Jarvo @ 11:22 am

Just because a photography looks simple doesn’t necessarily mean it was simple to shoot. This time lapse video of LA Photographer Michael Grecco demonstrates this fact. Now, this doesn’t mean that a lone shooter can’t get an assignment like this one with Will Farrell, because they can. However that photographer must understand the management of the shot as well as how to make the actual photographs. Take a look.
