Autodesk, the software company well known for its flagship AutoCAD program, has long been the leading provider of 3D design software for the architectural, engineering, construction, manufacturing, and entertainment industries. In 2008, it made Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies list (and rightfully so) for its role in several major design, manufacturing, and entertainment projects.
Now, Autodesk is finally putting its award-winning visual expertise in the hands of the average consumer with the latest update to its Socialcam mobile app.
The major upgrades in the new version include a redesign of the video effects, 720p and High Dynamic Range video capture, one-click mapping, and a new app icon.

Socialcam offers yet another twist to the explosively popular social media apps like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. It allows users to capture, share, and view videos on an iOS or Android device. Its ultimate goal is to let users unleash their creative and artistic potential in an online social networking environment.
With more than 20 million adopters, the revitalized Socialcam appears to be on the rise as a player in the mobile app realm. Backed by leading-edge visual effects software, it demonstrates a progressive step toward an interconnected and mobile world where capturing and sharing vivid recollections of our experiences is only a few finger taps away.
It is a problem with a solution we cannot see. However, some developer, someday, will see how it can be handled and make the solution. Like twitter for example... The developer wanted a way to publically share short messages. Now it is an important social media conduit. They saw something one else did at the time.
@Cabe: Yes it allows us to be ourselves but if we are always being ourselves then will there ever be such a thing called professionalism? We do have to adjust accordingly based on the situation, so if we want social media to join the business community they do have to be professional.
@Cabe: Honestly I do not see twitter as a promising media for promoting any professional thing.
If I would be given a chance to decide on how to use social media to make professional decisions / promotions, I would scrap off all the social media we have right now except LinkedIN and make things more professional.
I suppose twitter could be seen as a way to promote some product. I use it to give links to articles I write, but that is essentially a product too. At least the tweet is only 160 characters and not in your face everywhere you go. You do have the option to not read or even look at the words.
FB is packed with social comments, people's lives, and their adventures. All of which, I avoid reading. Is that not pure social networking? I know companies put product updates on FB too, but sometimes it is worth looking at or reading. Especially if you want the item.
How would you like to see social used? Perhaps, I can not see another use.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
