Going Fullscreen: Scale and Define Focal Points for Responsive HTML5 Video | Viget

This January, we teamed up with Dick's Sporting Goods to launch Gear in Action, a digital lookbook featuring products for the 2014 Baseball season. As you can see on this page of the finished site, video of the products in action displays at full height and width. This occurs regardless of browser size, and without distorting the video's original aspect ratio.

the new code – Use YouTube Videos as Fullscreen Web Page Backgrounds

My article on using CSS to position HTML5 videos as fullscreen web page backgrounds has proven to be one of the most popular on this site, but the technique has a significant challenge in that it forces users to host their own videos, or to find a service to do so.

the new code – Create Interactive HTML5 Video with WebVTT Chapters

WebVTT is associated with subtitling HTML5 video, but the spec contains many additional features that aren’t related to dialogue. One of the most useful of these is the ability to read and link to video cue points.

Coelux Artificial Skylight

This is just brilliant, Coelux is an Italian company that make artificial windows and skylights that mimic the true effect of natural sunlight and the sky, you won´t believe it isn´t real!  Designed for gloomy interior spaces, the high-tech light system uses Nanotechnology, and not only mimics the color temperature, it mimics the quality of daylight, it looks so real even a camera will be tricked. The creator’s claim the system is so effective that it tricks unknowing individuals into thinking they are looking up an actual hole in the ceiling, and at the actual sun. The entire system is incorporated into an elaborate false ceiling that is only a few millimeters thick, you can choose from a wall mounted window that produces a warm, grazing light, or a skylight which presents a 45 degree light designed to offer a balance of light and shadow. It recreates the experience of sun and sky and brings the outside world inside. Check out below some more photos of interior spaces illuminated by this faux sunlight, or watch the video for a better explanation on how the innovative system works.

[MAJ] Qu’est ce qu’une photo à l’ère du numérique et du téléphone mobile ? « MOBACTU / by @laurenceallard

by 1 other
Dans la foulée et en complément de l’émission Place de la toile du 28 septembre 2013 consacrée à la « photographie à l’ère numérique » à laquelle j’ai eu le plaisir d’être conviée par Xavier de la Porte, Alexandre Jubelin et Thibault Henneton aux côtés d’André Gunthert et de Jean Christophe Bechet, voici quelques réflexions issues de données ethnographiques récentes mettant en avant la vie matérielle et sociale du digital -au double sens anglo-saxon et français du terme car car avec le développement des interfaces tactiles sur les mobiles mais aussi sur les écrans d’ordinateur et les tablettes, les pratiques numériques sont de plus en plus incarnées et sous la main. Ces hypothèses font l’objet approfondi également d’un article à paraître en février 2014 aux éditions Armand Colin dans l’ouvrage collectif Téléphone Mobile et Création, sous la direction de Roger Odin, Laurent Creton et Laurence Allard. A la question liminaire de l’émission, qu’est ce qu’une photo à l’ère numérique et de la connexion généralisée, nous répondrons : « une image-texte prise 8 fois par jour avec mobile sur le mode psychique je vois/j’envoie. »
