Pad UI gets ported to the iPhone and iPod touch

At this particular point, 50-something days away from the earliest iPad deliveries, we doubt too many people are up in arms about the iPad’s ability to act as a jumbo iPhone. On the other hand, if we told you you can take pretty much the entire iPad experience and distill it down to your iPhone OS device, well you’d probably care a lot more, wouldn’t you? To get that extra 3D flavor to your UI, including the fetching iBooks shelf and other iPad-specific touches, you’ll need a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch, access to the Cydia app store, and the manpower to click past the break for the full instructional video. Come on, you know you want to.

‘Bad Apple!!’ stop-motion animation

January 29th, 2010

“Bad Apple!!” is a magical piece of stop-motion animation made from 6,566 still photos of printed bitmaps.


+ Video

The creator, Nico Nico Douga user “うp主,” says he made the video without using photo-editing software. The images were captured with a webcam, and the effects were achieved by changing the camera position and adjusting the focus, brightness, zoom, exposure and gain.

The original stills and music come from this video for the song “Bad Apple!!” (arranged by Masayoshi Minoshima, featuring vocals by nomico) from the Touhou Project game series…

Apple iPad’s ‘Micro SIM’ explained

January 28th, 2010

While the news of Apple’s iPad having 3G wasn’t exactly a surprise, the move to a new format for the SIM certainly was. The SIM — that tiny card that holds your contact info and account information that you find in your GSM handset — is a 15 x 25mm plastic card whereas the new Micro SIM (also known as a 3FF SIM) is a diminutive 12 x 15mm, about 52% smaller. Needless to say, it’s not physically compatible with your current phone. This card was developed by the ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) to offer things like more storage space on-chip for provider applications, increased control and security functions — over what, we don’t know — and the new smaller form factor allows it to fit in tiny devices. Frankly, we wouldn’t call the iPad “tiny” and we have absolutely no clue what justification Apple had to switch to it other than a desire to be different — this is the company that pioneered Mini DisplayPort, after all — but the long and the short of it is that you’re going to have a hard time finding a carrier offering Micro SIMs in the short term since the GSMA doesn’t appear to be actively spearheading a mass conversion. In fact, from AT&T’s perspective, this is better than a software lock in some ways — you’re not going to be able to download a hack that gets you on another network, so you’re totally at the mercy of your carrier at choice for providing a compatible card. Intentionally evil? Perhaps not — all standards have to start somewhere — but it’s an awful pain in the ass.

Update:
T-Mobile (in a partnership with Lok8u GPS devices) announced they were bringing the 3FF SIM to US shores back on January 6th of this year. See the source link for more info.

Paper Animated Parkour

January 13th, 2010


Here’s a neat parkour video, except it’s not actually real Parkour, but a paper animated version. This video created by Serene Teh and Noel Lee. Serene explains:

Illustrated with technical pen, frame by frame. I admit it might not be the best, or the quality isn’t perfect, just a shot at animating the old flip book whatever-you-call-it way

I’m a graphic design degree student living in Singapore, graduating in mid 2010. I have had work experience in a production company doing exhibition design and festive decors. Many of my works are unpublished, I’m working on posting them up on a website soon.

The audio I used is Dr Dre Rap beat, not sure who’s the artiste..

Post production credits goes to Noel Lee for his patience in piecing the sequence up together!
