As we celebrate the 2 years of our
Catchyoo blog, as we take new promising directions at LM3LABS, we hire
new people, we prepare new amazing products, it was time to re-align
our blogging strategy too.
The new blog is designed to reflect the innovation spirit carried by
LM3LABS for the last 5 years. The LM3LABS blog is more product neutral,
covering all products while leaving room to the future products and
corporate and business news.
Simpler, wider, it leaves space to video in hi-quality and to better graphics.
Visitors have direct access to the products, solutions or corporate
sites with visible buttons. They can also easily contact LM3LABS thru a
form which integrates into LM3LABS business flow.
RSS subscribtion has never been so easy. Please subscribe to stay tunes!
Also please change your bookmarks as the Catchyoo blog will dissapear on August 8th and no more posting will be made on it.
Catchyoo iTable has been deployed by Teikoku Data Bank who presents a very interesting exhibition about the longer lasting Japanese companies.
Japan is the country with the more numerous century+ companies in the world.
There are 20.000 century old companies in Japan, 2.000 of them were created before the Meiji Era (starting 1868).
The oldest Japanese company has been founded in AD 578 and is still in business (Carpenter company).
The curator modestly tells that this is due to respect of traditions and permanent innovation and this is why he is happy with this interactive table as the central point of the exhibition, presenting those respectable brands.
We would add that respect of client, respect of employees and permanent search for quality are the other key factors.
ubiq'window is the only high-precision technology in the world to provide a 100% free air, touchless interactivity.
Ubiq'window lets integrators create interactive zones associated to real-life, non-digital objects. At National Archives of Malaysia, 3 "real-world" books are associated to 3 different contents. Then visitors can turn pages of the projected screen, naturally, at distance, by pointing in the air.
This interactivity requires no training for people who instinctively know how to use the installation.
Photosynth is a promising project from Microsoft associating web 2.0 contents, an amazing visualization interface and a geo-positioning module.
To make it short it matches thousands of pictures taken from many people and strored on Flickr to recreate a 3D view of a place.
The project is still tagged as a "lab" project by Microsoft.
This kind of next generation interface takes all its value when it is navigated with a next generation interaction technology like Ubiq'window. Ubiq'window's interactive screen technology lets users manipulate the content with their hands and get rid of traditional human-machine interfaces like mice and keyboard.
This opens opportunities for "barrier-free" interaction with dynamic signage content (advertising), cultural exhibition (museums) and retail environments.
