I stumbled upon a fun website last week. It is called MyScriptFont.com. The site allows you to build a font using your own handwriting. It is pretty simple and quick.
Thanks to increasingly powerful smartphones you no longer need sophisticated cameras to make video recordings. But for rapid footage with a lot of movement, mobiles just won’t do the job.
That’s why companies like US manufacturer GoPro, with their small, robust and waterproof action camcorders, are seeing a boom in demand. It also means the most amazing videos have emerged online.
Here are a few suggestions to inspire your own GoPro video masterpieces.
An American schoolgirl had the brilliant idea to put a Hello Kitty doll in a rocket and launch it into the stratosphere on a weather balloon. The science project produced these incredible aerial pictures that are literally out of this world. If you’re looking for an astronaut’s view of Earth - from 18 miles up - you know it’s possible thanks to this student’s brainwave.
Go to The Red Bulletin site to see the other awesome videos and their stories!
Just a reminder that the new OverDrive web site is scheduled to go live on
November 7th. For now, it is just the web site that will be new. Users will
continue to use the current OverDrive app. OverDrive was planning to launch a
new app, but that has been delayed until after the holidays. I have updated
the post on InfoSoup http://infosoup.info/ws to include news about the app.
From previewing the site, I don't think users should have any problems
navigating or using the new site.
