Dreams of Burma lead

Burma is a country that, for many of us, only lives in our dreams. For years, it has been difficult for people to get into the country and experience its spectacular beauty.

Burma has long been known as a pariah state, isolated from the rest of the world with an appalling human rights record. From 1962 to 2011, the country was ruled by a military junta that suppressed almost all dissent and wielded absolute power in the face of international condemnation and sanctions. National Geographic Traveler and Fotopedia have set out to open our eyes with Dreams of Burma, an app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.  [Read more…]

When we all saw the awesome new idea of Instagram hitting the scene like it did a few years ago, it has always been hard to imagine someone creating something to rival it. While some have ripped off the idea, designed it somewhat differently, and slapped a new name on it, feeling like they’ve added to the conversation, in reality, they may be missing the point. They’re just repeating the person who spoke before them. This is not the case with San Francisco based startup Momentage. Momentage is a community for the new creatives. [Read more…]

If you’re like most of us, you aren’t just taking photos anymore. The modern, media filled life will not constrain itself to the still image, or even just a video.

Fun App ‘Seene’ Covertly Primes You For The 3D Revolution

Tuesday 11.12.2013 , Posted by

The current race to develop 3D technology is a little like the race to invent color television after an era of black and white. Our media is on the brink of coming full-circle, back into the third dimension after being trapped in a flat virtual world since 3D movies went out in the 60s. New 3D tech is being announced daily in the form of printers, scanners, TVs, glasses… what’s next? With every revolutionary innovation comes a beautifully pointless product (like Snapchat to temporary content). These trends can be ‘stupid’ on the surface but they can also function to assimilate foreign ideas into mainstream culture, paving the way for world changing tools. One such tool in the 3D tech world is a pointlessly-revolutionary app called Seene. [Read more…]

Crazy About Wine on Vine

Monday 01.28.2013 , Posted by

Surprisingly the videos can be very entertaining, especially since you can watch them as they are posted, in real-time, on vinepeek.com. It’s as if people around the world have their own 6 second reality show and you can choose which ones to tune into on Twitter. [Read more…]
