New Experiences and the Abstract Tale of Cloudbusting

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of July 15th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas
Why New Experiences Are Important, and How They Positively Affect Your Perception of Time: If we perceive time more slowly when we’re processing the unfamiliar, than the frequent introduction of the unfamiliar could help our perception of time from rapidly shrinking.

Products

Fingersense: A software package that allows smartphones to recognizes different kinds of taps. The catch is that FingerSense requires an extra bit of hardware in order to work–an acoustic sensor that can recognize the unique vibration patterns that distinguish among fingertip, fingernail, and knuckle taps.

Visuals
Burton Kramer Film Trailer: A clip from an upcom­ing short film about Bur­ton Kramer by Greg Dur­rell. Kramer is know for design­ing the Cana­dian Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion iden­tity sys­tem in 1974.

KENZO 2013 Fall/Winter “Cloudbusting” Video: Coming in the form of a short film from directing duo Partel Oliva – the creative entity that oversees all of KENZO’s artistic direction – “Cloudbusting” is a stunt rider-starring abstract tale meant as an interpretation of the fantastic and post-romantic universe that inspired both the men’s and women’s collections for the season ahead.
