The 3D RSS reader (video)…

83792668 C9226578Fe MHere’s the first test of a 3D RSS reader “idea” I’m working on – I shot this last week before I left for Macworld so it doesn’t really show what’s possible, or how it works now, but I think it’s easy to get the idea – in the current version you point it toward a real geographic location and using a “lens” (a tablet pc with x,y,z axis tracking) as you point it at something you get the feeds, so let’s say you point it towards Redmond, WA you’d get news about Microsoft or something. For now I need to manually let it know where it is, but I think there’s a way to feed in more real world data. Ok, here’s the video – Link (MOV) and photos. I’ll have a new video and some more about this later.

    What system are you using to input the tablet movements?

    A few days after pondering something similar, I notice a new video in itunes. I’m sure this kind of display will be every where eventually.

    (Imagine a transparent display in the windshield of your car giving you an overlay of important data, like where to get off for the closest bathroom!)

    In anycase I’d like to second mreddygbr’s comment.
    How did you make that magic??!
