QR Code Installation @ MRM London

October 29, 2010

The latest installation at MRM London headquarters reception is this wall of QR codes – each one dedicated to a different client and each one linking through to some work we’ve produced for them. A simple idea to implement but an great way of adding a bit of interaction to an otherwise flat space.

Pulse News Mini

August 3, 2010

I’ve just downloaded this great blog feed app on my iPhone called Pulse. It’s essentially a nicely designed rss & blog reader that you can customise to view feeds on your iPhone/iPad quickly and easily. Very simple but just what I’ve been after. Great stuff.

If you’re lucky enough to own both an iPad and a Macintosh Classic – you should definitely consider doing this:

So today I finally got my hands on an iPad (not to keep sadly) and having previously been rather critical of it’s offerings, it was difficult not to fall in love with it just a little bit. OK – perhaps it is just a glorified iPhone but I challenge you to pick one up and not want to slip it into your (giant) pocket.

So today’s hot topic is no doubt Apples new iPad. Launched yesterday to much anticipation, it lies somewhere between an iPhone and a laptop.

At a glance it certainly looks the part, and credit where credit’s due – the interface – in true Apple style is faultless (though not much more than an extension of the already brilliant iPhone).

My problem with it doesn’t lie in the product itself, but what it could have been. Personal computers have been crying out for touch screen technology, particularly from a design perspective. The idea of a slate/pad on to which I could run all my creative software that incorporated a touch screen/stylus dynamic would be incredible. Instead, what we have makes for a half impressive multi media device but by no means a bold step forward for the personal computer.

In short, if Apple had done to the laptop what they did with the mobile/ mp3 player – it’d really be game changing. But maybe I’m wrong. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next.

Acrossair

January 23, 2010

Augmented reality is definitely a bit of a buzz word in digital at the moment and i’ve not seen many genuine uses for it yet aside from novelty applications. Acrossair however is an iPhone app that actually seems to provide added value to the experience. By holding it in front of you it will locate your nearest bars, restaurant, wiki articles/locations and even nearest tweets (though I’m not really sure how useful the latter is).

Let’s hope there’s some more good stuff like this to come.
