3D is cool, but I do not want to put on glasses every time I watch something in 3D.
There are plenty of glasses free TVs out there, but let’s face it I do not want to be confined to 3-5 spots in my living room and if I move a little bit the picture will look sh*t.
However, Japanese researchers have devised a new type of hologram technology. They work with normal light and can produce full-coloured 3D images.
This new technology works by hitting a thin metal film with three beams of white light, each from a different angle. Each beam excites a different colour of light, which then passes through an RGB hologram, combining to form a full-colour 3D image.
These holograms wouldn’t require glasses or viewing angles and how awesome would it be to have real life holograms acting out movies in your living room.
I can’t wait for it.

Our Media Director @michaelb send around this useful tool that he got from our German office in Frankfurt.
This little tool will find you Creative Commons licensed Flickr photos according to a colour code you enter. It’s really nice, simple and might save you a couple of minutes before your next presentation.
They also show a real sense of humour when you want way too colourful pictures
The tools is here – so enjoy!

The Colour Picker pen by Korean designer Jinsu Park works just like the eyedropper tool in Photoshop. Use the rear end of the pen to scan the colour of the objects around you, and then pen imitates the colour by mixing red, green and blue ink, thus negating the need for an arsenal of crayons
Unfortunately you can’t buy this pen yet as it is still conceptual, but if it ever hits the market I know a few designers that will want to have one.

All you palette freaks out there, here’s a cool tool that allows you to upload a photo and ‘extract’ the colour palette for use in your design projects. www.colorhunter.com
How it works – here’s Jeremy talking it up big during the “Amnesia Open Studio” night for students last month:
Copy and paste the image url into ColorHunter
Update: We just got inspired and took this photo… is very nice!
…Not quite sure where the red came from?
