If you have half an hour to kill and are as entusiastic about J.J. Abrams as me you should check out this fun and quirky interview from the BBC’s The Chris Moyles Show.
Spoilers, plot devices and what to look out for in Star Trek, Cloverfield, Fringe and Lost all-in-one.
YouTube is now offering a “Watch in HD” option for videos that were originally uploaded from an HD source.
Previously, the link read “Watch in High Quality” which really wasn’t HD quality.
As we reported earlier, YouTube recently switched from a 4:3 aspect ratio to a 16:9 aspect ratio which brought the widescreen video format necessary to support High Definition video.
Without further adieu…
Enjoy Blatant Mockery‘s “Sideshow” in HD.
It really looks great!
The comparison shots above don’t do it any justice.
Hit up the link and please rate and comment on YouTube!!
Google-owned YouTube.com has launched widescreen video playback on its video sharing website today.
Could HD be next? This has all but paved the way…
OMFG! GIANT ASTEROID DESTROYING EARTH!
Okay, so not really. They used lasers! Friggin’ lasers.
Radiohead and a handful of geeks used several laser technologies to film their lastest video for “House of Cards“. And they did it all without video or film of any kind.
Really interesting behind the scenes of the process at the link. And the video too, of course.
And if you’re patient, play around with the data visualization flash application. WOAH!
Give It 2 Me! Lamps and scarf circles are so hot right now! Madonna you did it again!!

Mitsubishi is showing off how to display live 3D video without the need for those bulky, oh-so-non-fashionable glasses. 16 cameras hooked up via firewire to 8 computers transmit the captured video over Ethernet to 8 more computers which decode and feed the 16 projectors. Practical for home use? No. Awesome. Yes!
