Interactive Bench

I was surfing the web and came across this new interactive bench designed by MAPT in Copenhagen. The bench lights up as people walk by and changes color as you sit and play with it. The bench also has 3 built in games for children and adults. This should help pass the time while relaxing in the park.

The Power of Social Media: Overthrowing Governments

Many researchers are looking into the power that social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook are having on organizing the overthrowing of governments such as Tunisia and potentially Egypt. An NPR story Social Media gets Credit For Tunisian Overthrow reports a young tech-saavy popoulation staging the world’s first “cyber-net revolution”.

As convenience increases, is solitude on the increase as well?

Technology is shrinking our physical social interactions and turning them into passive communications and transactions via   netwroked technologies.

Architect- Idea for Future Website

Being an archiecture student I am very interested in portfolios and representation of work. This is a great website which was created by an archiect which is interactive and highly crafted. I think it is a great idea to create something like this which is electronic to submit to future employers.

Interactive Zune Website

Check out this website! It is an amazing expierence. This is a great interactive website. It feels almost as if it were a video. I believe it is made using Flash. Very impressive and enjoyable! It relates to the discussion of action/outcome. If you hold down on the button you travel through the space and when you stop then you freeze in that world.
