1811 Fourier Technique improved upon, video, images, audio set to improve

1811 Fourier Technique improved upon, video, images, audio set to improve

Back in 1811 there was a mathematical technique proposed, it now known to us as Joseph Fourier's Fourier Technique, a technique which eventually translated itself into one of the most basic ways we now encode and de-code images, music, and many other kinds of media - what's being proposed by MIT now is that there's a much more efficient way to go about all of it. The Fourier Technique took a complex signal, broke it down into several components, transmitted or processed them each separately, then re-combined them into what was basically there in the first place. In 1965 this technique was translated to computers, and sweet packaging did occur.

Spinner 360 Leather Edition camera takes lomography to a strange new place

Spinner 360 Leather Edition camera takes lomography to a strange new place

There are two main hero features on the camera you're about to witness: the first being that it's essentially got a drawstring that'll blast the lens around in a 360 degree circle so you can capture the area you're in in a full panorama scene. The second bit is that this camera is clad in Italian Toledo leather, complete with a lovely thatched pattern so you're in style in the field. Take it out to a field full of cows for ultimate odd artistic appeal.

Disney Sakar AppClix camera for iPad starts influx of reasonable shooters for the slate

When you pick up an iPad 2, you know you're in for a great experience in all forms of working with the tablet form factor - in software, in hardware, and in camera-wait, the camera is terrible - that's why when the Disney-branded Sakar AppClix camera came up this week in our news barrel, we payed attention. What this camera does is attach to the bottom of your iPad in the iPod 30-pin port and acts as a camera that begins to bring you into a reasonable space for shooting photos and videos. While the iPad 2's camera was never one to win any awards for quality, Sakar may well bring the art back to iPhone levels with none other than Mickey Mouse himself.

Instagram app for Android confirmed

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom finally confirmed at the LeWeb conference today that the Android port of the massively popular photo-sharing app on the iPhone was coming soon.

Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera has us seeing spherical potential

Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera has us seeing spherical potential

Each time there is a new way to capture media, especially when that means is inexpensive, the world goes nuts trying to see how they can show off their life and times with it. That's what's about to happen with this ball camera, the Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera, that is, a project that's currently Patent Pending and has been in the works, apparently, since back in 2010. The project has progressed to the point here in late 2011 where the designers feel it strong enough to present to the public - just toss it up in the air and at it's peak - SNAP - you've got a complete 360 degree view of the environment the ball is in. How's that for a new way of seeing things?
