    Layerscape Tour: Malowane niebo–Beautiful

    Malowane niebo

    It’s inspiring to see someone take technology and combine with art and artistic abilities to make something beautiful.  I ran across the Layerscape Tour Maolwane niebo that combines artwork from children inspired by the skies and mythology.

    Fun with Cliplets–Video and Pics


    For some Friday fun, I was playing with Cliplets from Microsoft Research – it let’s you combine still shots and video to create pictures that have movement.  Below I took some video while at Stanford on my cellphone and ran created a cliplet just to test it out – works really easy.

    What Are Cliplets?

    Microsoft Research Cliplets is an interactive app that gives users the power to create "Cliplets" -- a type of imagery that sits between stills and video, including imagery such as video textures and "cinemagraphs". The app provides a simple, yet expressive way to mix static and dynamic elements from a video clip.
