Prototype Real / Digital Info Interface System
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.

Upside Down by Paloma Faith
This is the song that’s featured on the website for Cheritz’s new game, Nameless (coming winter 2013 for PC/Mac). It’s such a pretty song to go along with the pretty artwork (from what they show so far xD). I can upload the mp3 if anyone wants me to.
Okay, so my birthday’s not until October, but this is on the top of my wish list.
