OAT Shoes

OAT Shoes are biodegradable sneakers that carry flowers in the tongue of the shoe. Once you wear them, or rather once you’re done wearing them, you can bury them in the ground and have a bouquet of wildflowers growing where your sneakers are buried. : Continue reading :

Twitter is Killing English?

Actor Ralph Fiennes made headlines last week when he claimed that the rise of social networking is ruining the English language, stating that "I think we’re living in a time when our ears are attuned to a flattened and truncated sense of our English language, so this always begs the question, is Shakespeare relevant? But I love this language we have and what it can do, and aside from that I think the themes in his plays are always relevant." (Source)

What do you think?

Apple Maps?

Apple acquires yet another mapping company, C3, further fueling speculation that it will be replacing Google Maps functionality on iOS devices in the next 12 months.

YouTube Preview Image

Above is an example of the capabilities of C3′s mapping platform.  Below we have a description of the company and a job posting from Apple.  Check out the original source of this info.

C3 uses modern camera equipment to capture as many as one image per second of the same object from up to 100 different angles. The images are then used to automatically reproduce the shape of the objects with very high accuracy. After that, an image processing software automatically drapes each shape with the texture chosen from the pictures of each object. The same process is being applied for all objects - buildings, houses, trees, and hills - the result is a seamless canvas of 3D-data where the resolution (8 to 12 centimeters per pixel) and quality is consistent over the entire model. This is the secret to C3 maps’ realistic look compared to competitors’ hand-made and cartoonish appearance …

Come work for the team that revolutionized the mobile technology industry as it continues to define what computing looks like in a post-PC era. The Maps team is looking for a proactive and hardworking software engineer to join our team. Along with excellent skills in object-oriented software design and programming, the successful candidate will have real-world experience developing sophisticated user interfaces. Excellent communication skills are also a must, as you will be collaborating closely with Apple’s peerless human interface team to add new and innovative features.
