You may have noticed in last week’s update that the Instagram logo got a fresh look. Mackey Saturday (@saturday), a designer and typographer from Denver, Colorado, is the creative force behind Instagram’s logo.
An avid Instagrammer, Mackey committed himself to creating a logo that would resonate with the community: “My hope is that the new design maintains all the excitement and delight that Instagram has had from the beginning, but with an even more polished finish,” Mackey says.
Mackey spent countless hours collaborating with our team until the final design emerged. “I want people to know and see that every last detail is always being considered and that this is a place where they can confidently create and share new memories for years to come. I’m honored to have a part in helping further those moments and hope that this piece becomes synonymous with fond memories, joyful emotions, and thrilling aspirations for the community.”
Using projection and gestures to create interactive relationship with information - video embedded below:
Fujitsu Laboratories has developed a next generation user interface which can accurately detect the users finger and what it is touching, creating an interactive touchscreen-like system, using objects in the real word.
“We think paper and many other objects could be manipulated by touching them, as with a touchscreen. This system doesn’t use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology.”
Using this technology, information can be imported from a document as data, by selecting the necessary parts with your finger.
