Selfsurfing is a Chrome extension that creates a self-surfing, auto-updating clone of Jonas Lund’s browser in real time.
Jonas’ browser has a server extension installed which transmits the current state of his browser to a intermediate server, which holds all relevant information. This information is then picked up by Selfsurfing extension.

To check if it works in real time I asked him through twitter (@jonas_lund) to visit triangulationblog.com and he did! (thanks!). I have also read in a public pad he has opened right now and is using it as a public chat to speak and interact with other people who has already installed Selfsurfing, that if he visits soundcloud or last.fm and he plays the sound player the music is not going to autoplay itself if you don’t play it, but he found another way to share in real time what music he’s listening, if he plays the videos on Youtube you will watch and listen them in live!

- Print Stuff [Scripts] Print Stuff is a personal project by Guido Tamino allowing strangers to use his printer at home forming basis of what will eventually become a book. Basically he is inviting everyone to print some stuff (a short message and a picture) in his room over the internet, it's real time and fully automated. Just fill in the form and click «print». There's also a webcam video stream in the background so that you can see the priting process actually happening. The process uses shell scrip for printing and uploading part, PHP for the general queue handling (together with a pdf class for formatting everything right) and a simple Pure Data patch for snapping webcam pictures and uploading them to the server. The website has been opened to the internet only a couple hours ago so if you want to be the first, it's only few clicks away..here. Looking at my printer sending out some stuff picked by strangers on the internet becomes addictive in a short time. There is some mistery behind that, which is exciting and makes the printing process an extremely pleasant thing to look at, because you never know what to expect. And if i like this experience maybe someone else will do, that’s why I am starting to share with everyone on the internet a live streaming of my printer. More info can be found on […]
- Rutt-Etra-Izer [Scripts, WebApp] Created by Felix Turner Rutt-Etra-Izer is a WebGL emulation of the classic Rutt-Etra video synthesizer. The demo replicates the Z-displacement, scanned-line look of the original, but does not attempt to replicate it’s full feature set. The application allows you to drag and drop your own images, manipulate them and save the output. Images are generated by scanning the pixels of the input image from top to bottom, with scan-line separated by the ‘Line Separation’ amount. For each line generated, the z-position of the vertices is dependent on the brightness of the pixels. try it here: http://airtightinteractive.com/demos/js/ruttetra/ or download source. (To run the demo you need the latest version of Chrome or Firefox) Created with Three.js More images generated by this demo in this Flickr set. Felix also built an audio-reactive version with Processing (video below). Background: The Rutt-Etra video synthesizer was built by Steve Rutt and Bill Etra in 1972. It was one of the first devices to allow real-time manipulation of live video and helped instigate the video art movement of the 1970s. Unfortunately Steve Rutt recently passed away. His pioneering contributions to the field of video art will be always be […]

- We are the World – Not in Death [Scripts] Daniel Franke and Andreas Fischer recently finished the post & effects on a video for the band "We are the world" from LA. Using custom scripts for After Effects which generate a mapping of the fft-analysis of the audio data of the song, the distortion of the dancer were controlled using the slitscan technique. The higher the audio values are, the greater is the range of frames sampled for one image. See video below. Daniel and Andreas are part of the We Are Chopchop collective, a small community of designers, video- and media artists working and exploring in the field of visual culture production. Directed by Robbie Williamson Shot by Jonathan Narducci Edited By Nina McNeely Produced By Kristen Campbell Taylor Motion design & post production by the Chopchop collective Project Page Interested in Slitscan technique?

- Nadia [Java, Objects] Created by Andrew Kupresanin, Nadia is a camera that has no display of the photographs to be taken, but rather gives the judgment of aesthetic quality to the machine, displaying only a current rating as feedback about when and what to snap. Within pop culture and society artificial intelligence has been a topic that is approached with hope, fear, cynicism, curiousity and caution. However many intelligent devices have already been effortlessly absorbed into our culture and everyday lives. Currently under development, we will soon see devices and systems that have the ability to think creativly and infer beauty. As this novel technology improves and works its way into consumer devices, what effect will it have on individual preference and our creative process? The prototype shown here comprises a PyS60 script running on a Nokia N73, a Java App running on a Mac and the online 'aesthetic quality inference engine' ACQUINE . The PyS60 script takes a photo which is sent via Bluetooth to the Java App, and from there uploaded to ACQUINE. The returned rating is then sent back to the camera N37 and displayed. (Thanks Andrew!)
