The new iPhone app for St Helen's Bishopsgate is now out! If you want a version for your church, have a look at this document which contains details of what I need from you in order to make it. Do get in touch!
Here's a video demonstration of a tool to help eBayers find items near them so that they can arrange collection in person and save on postage and packing fees. There's also a video to check out for a tool called eBay Spy which presents a real time feed of closing auctions.
There's a lot of buzz at the moment about a new MMOG called eRepublik. Here's a tour.
Can't really help you there. But here's a useful Google gadget that performs a video search through the speeches made by the two presidential candidates for keywords such as "health" or "Taiwan" to hear what they've said about those issues. A search for "change" by Obama might yield a fair few results!
Here's a video made using Ripper which captured images every few minutes from a webcam in San Francisco. I like the end where you can see the planes coming in to land.
Made using a webcam and Flix, here's a time lapse video showing the huge amount of effort that goes into preparing a panto for the public. Thanks Jon!
Taiwanese director Ang Lee was on the radio today promoting his new film "Lust, Caution". It was a good interview, at least, it sounds like it went a lot better than one he had with Stewart Lee, soon after "The Hulk" came out...
Lifted - a very entertaining animated short :) A sort of driving test with a difference!
Despite getting her bottom pinched during a live broadcast for Channel 4, I think Sue Turton does very well to stay unfazed and keep going with her story!
The feat by Herschell Gibbs the other day was, of course, famously done previously by Sir Garfield Sobers and I found a link to it. Here's footage of the man hitting six sixes in one over against Glamorgan bowler Malcolm Nash in 1968.
I made this video a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps partly inspired by the Planet Earth series that's been on TV recently I thought it would be interesting to move the camera during the creation process. I did this by making a simple Lego Mindstorms robot and strapping the webcam to the back of it as it moved about a millimetre every fifteen seconds. By no means the most interesting vid but I thin...
I think this was made in and around Plymouth... Grab a webcam and Flix to make something similar.
The soundtrack's good too! And by the way, you could make something like this yourself using Flix.
Heathrow airport's been suffering with heavy fog this past week. So just how long does it take to churn out out a new plane and take on some extra passengers? Not too long by the looks of it. Here's another time lapse vid, this time of a jet getting the "pimp my ride" treatment.
And if anyone wants to make time lapse movies themselves using a webcam, check out Flix.
The search logs for nimisis are showing quite a few people looking for video capture with a webcam of the "bog standard" variety, rather than time lapse or long exposure capture. So, here's a link to what you would need - AmCap
Only 3 days until Amazon.co.uk take pre-orders for the Wii and 3 weeks till it actually comes out! If you're not currently planning to buy one, you might be tempted after watching this.
Here's a video showing The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess on starting up on the soon to be released Nintendo Wii.
I guess what happened to this fireworks factory was the kind of effect Guy Fawkes wanted for the Houses of Parliament 400 years ago...
I met someone over the weekend who was in the guiness book of world records . Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool to have that on your cv. I mean, there seems to be an inifinite number of ways to get in but I just couldn't think of anything good to try myself on the spot. Wish I'd thought of this.
This was from the weekend game against Charlton. Has goal of the season been decided already?
Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-1 today! Even the new England captain John Terry couldn't influence the outcome. Although I think it's a good choice of captain by new England coach Steve McClaren, unfortunately whenever John Terry's name is mentioned, I just see the incident of Ronaldinho running him over and scoring in last year's Champion's League. It was a superb goal. Oh, and he scored against Che...
Here's another video for you to watch . It's excellent. I remember this from school.
Here's another great video clip, this time of David Elsewhere in Kollaboration 4.
Ski jump gone wrong.
Lucky basketball shot.
Swerving free kick.
Awesome table football skills.
A couple of links:
Check out this amazing table tennis rally .
How secure is your PC?
Adverts that are fun to watch are hard to find! Here are two; that VW golf one with David Elsewhere posing as Gene Kelly dancing and singing in the rain and the one by Skoda with the fat gymnast doing a floor routine .
Been messing about on a video capture project for the best part of two weeks now. What fun! I've caught the IT manager scratching his backside in one mpg, a guy in sales doing a very strange dance down the corridor and a colleague picking his nose and sneezing . All this playing has shown me that writing a little webcam program isn't that hard, so I've knocked one up right here on nimisis. So n...
