Kaleidos is a device that allows direct and seamless communication through natural interaction. It is designed particularly to let grandparents and grandchildren who live far from each other to stay in touch.
This video features Locast H2flOw, a project that uses mobile storytelling to enhance learning and encourage urban exploration and civic engagement. The H2flOw program used the Mobile Experience Lab's Locast platform and introduced this interactive technology as a tool for educational discovery and documentation. Locast H2flOw was deployed in Trentino, Italy in January of 2011. In this deployment, students researched sustainable water use by creating location-based video reportages and documentaries within their community.
Everyone daily involves friends into decision-making processes. This or That (ToT) is a mobile application that leverages on social network in order to empower users in making more informed every-day decisions and improve the shopping experience.
ToT participants can describe topics that they are interested in and assign to each of them group of friends whose opinion is valuable is valuable on that particular topic. Later on, This or That users can create a survey on their mobile phone or PC to poll their friends on a particular decision that they are about to make. While creating a new survey, a user can involve own opinion leaders which can instantly support the decision-making twittering their preference.
This or That is supported by a dynamic reputation and trust system that changes according to the vote feedbacks and quality comments that every participant sends. Each interaction is evaluated both by participants and by the application algorithms in order to establish an expertise ranking for each topic.

Interactive video site showcasing how Easytone trainers let you tone up wherever you are
Working closely with the illustration department at glue Isobar, we created this interactive video experience which mixes live action film with some really lovely animation work. The film shows a series of clips of a toned female walker in different scenarios, which users can drag between to move backwards or forwards in time. We had just 3 days to scout and shoot on location in South Africa. Combined with the fact that one of the locations turned into a building site overnight meant we had to work pretty fast to get everything we needed. Post wise, there was therefore quite a bit of stabilization to do in order to get the dolly movements totally smooth. We actually had to rebuild the fountain scene almost entirely to make sure the ground level was completely even!
