Me listening to The Cult’s Love album from 25 years ago makes me realize that I have become one of those people whom I used to laugh at in the 90s—as an insufferable teenager—for listening to 60s music.
I actually realized this inescapable rite of passage some time ago, but with The Cult in my ears, everything just feels overly dramatic.
LT24 is an experimental movie by Lucio Arese, which squashes 24 hours of footage into 184 seconds. It is sound tracked by a 184 second piece of music that is ‘projected’ onto the 24 hour time span of the video.
I actually don’t fully understand what I just tried explaining, but the video and audio end-product is just fantastic.
When it comes to augmented reality (AR), the shit we mostly see includes some kind of marker and waving your mobile device stupidly at it (or worse still, furiously waving an AR marker on a paper in front of your computer for frivolous content). Word Lens, a translation app for the iPhone, kicks things up a few notches beautifully with a great AR implementation. Stunning, seamless and useful.
1 × 1 = 1
11 × 11 = 121
111 × 111 = 12321
1111 × 1111 = 1234321
11111 × 11111 = 123454321
111111 × 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 × 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 × 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 × 111111111 = 12345678987654321
While this pattern is mind-boggling enough, the middle digit of the result indicates how many 1s there were on either side of the multiplication sign.
Great idea and execution by Wieden+Kennedy (Tokyo). And I have to admit, the Japanese women just make it all very cute, too.
