HOME .. we have 10 years to change the way we live!

Yann Arthus-Bertrand's movie released today worldwide on all mediums .. stunning!

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate.

The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

PPR is proud to support HOME

HOME is a carbon offset movie

Augmented Reality and new Toys.

Here's some of the latest toys we're playin with while winter rolls in down under.

We've been playin with all sorts of possibilities here .. these guys are our favourite to date.

AUGMENTED REALITY - Human interface
Check the new XBOX 360 interface from project NATAL

We'll all be doing our own Weta workshops motion capture at home soon.

AUGMENTED REALITY - Architectural presentations.

We've been working with the crew at Pivnice Architecture on the use of Augmented reality via the SketchUp AR plug-in that now works on the MAC. The video above by BIG is the best we've seen to date .. even if we don't know what he's on about. The video below shows the AR-Media plugin for Sketchup .. you'll see the ZNO Burj Al Arab model used in the demo, we did this way back in '05.
