We are just back in the office after taking a week off out of the city. The big news while we have been away is the launch of PhotoSynth.

Up and coming posts include a new working paper, a tutorial to create HD timelapse’s, a return to Crysis and of course a closer look at PhotoSynth.

Regular service will be back soon as we can….

    You might also want to look for the new Far Cry 2 Map Editor Video that was released during the Game Convention in Leipzig last week.

Physical Space Tweets: Pst! microCONTROL

Pst! is the surreptitious beckoning of attention and the acronym for Physical Space Tweets. It is a small Ardunio storyteller installed in public space giving an audience a glimpse into a geo-tagged community’s topic feed.

For the Leeds Pavillion at Mediamatic’s Amsterdam Biennale 2009 Pst! chronicled life in Leeds through it’s twitter feed.

Pst! microCONTROL from Megan Leigh Smith on Vimeo.

The piece locates a public social narrative by pulling an information feed from Twitter User profiles geographically aligned to Leeds with Twitter’s geocode API and then prints this information onto a mini LCD screen. By removing the peripheral of the computer a Pst! device can be placed in a non-space providing a window directly into a geo-located public space.
