This is a nice flash example of a flash project that integrates Fuller’s concept of geometries and their parameters.
Even though its Flash technology is used as a punching bag by web standards fans, Adobe has been working hard to embrace HTML5. The company released its own HTML5 video player, and Adobe Illustrator and Dreamweaver CS5 contain a number of new HTML5 export tools. Now Adobe is turning its HTML5 attentions to Flash with the release of Wallaby, a new Flash-to-HTML5 converter.
Wallaby isn’t quite ready for prime time yet, but you can grab the pre-release version from Adobe Labs if you’d like to experiment.
I remembered discussing during the beginning of the semester that we should go out and explore websites that utilize flash. So, I thought I would share with everyone three sites that I know of personally that incorporate flash into them. These three websites are for architecture firms in Chicago. I worked on designing and building the second and third sites while working for both of the firms. The first one is a previous firm the partners worked for, and I was shown this as an example of what we originally considered doing. Here are the links:
These two videos I came across when researching Flash. They are great and comical. Done with great quality. It gives great ideas for what can be done using Flash.
This reminds me of Flash. Prezi is a presentation format which is animated similarly to Flash. It gives great ideas for how presentations could be made using Flash.Check it out.
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.
Steve Job wrote a letter explaining the reasons that Apple does not have flash on the iPhone, iPod, and iPad. Seeing that flash has been so prevalent it is really odd to see one of the major computer companies so against it.
Adobe released an official statement against Apple and other manufacturers refusing to allow flash on their devices. The lack of flash is one of the greatest problems with the Apple products in my opinion but it is based in an Apple decision to make as much money as possible.
After watching the Microsoft videos and also trying to figure out how to implement realtime interaction in 3D in flash. I stumbled uponMicrosoft Silverlight. It is an application similar to flash and its free. It allows the use of video, music, and 3d manipulation all in the the same interface that is also searchable by the google machine.
