I decided to do a quick experiment using my Canon Powershot SD880 camera. I documented my flight from Burbank to Oakland this past Sunday night. I know its an everyday thing now since its been part of society since the early 20th century but its just crazy covering 350 miles in just an hour. The convenience of that versus driving a car for 5.5–6 hours between the Bay and LA.
Flight—its simply an amazing thing.
Here is the set that I compiled.
As I was trying to kill time, I was researching Quicksilver extendability other than just quick-launching apps. Yes, I know Spotlight does it from the get-go.
My search led to a Lifehacker.com article (as usual, with this kind of things) written a while back about Gina Trapani’s Top 10 Quicksilver Plugins (at the time: November 2007). One of the plugins that intrigued me to check out was the Shelf module/plugin.
Lo and behold, they’ve been featured on Wired.com’s Underwire section just recently. The article was about their music video for “Under Control”.
The dope part is that it was produced using an
“iPhone, a portable printer and a webcam.”
They performed the track in front of the webcam and printed it up into the handheld snapshots that fly by in the globe-hopping video, which hopscotches from Brooklyn to the Grand Canyon, Vegas, Hawaii and Australia at the speed of sound. They took additional shots using the iPhone, then mashed the production nightmare into an eye-tripping visual for their body-rocking song.
In other words, ApSci’s video has no video in it. No post-production either.
Very, very schneaky and creative I must say. Well done. Here’s the video.

For those that don’t know, Apple’s WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) 2009 was this past Monday morning at Moscone West, San Francisco. It’s primarily for those developing for Apple’s products (OS X, iPhone apps, etc.) but it’s also for the Apple fans out there as the Keynote usually addresses new product releases, etc.
I was tuned in, listening to Ustream’s live stream of the Keynote.1 Pretty cool as you can multitask versus having to read every new updates on a blog. Though you have to give it up though as the photos on the blog updates are more eye candy.
