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.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
