Imagine that you have just broken free from a silicon cube, stark naked, and erased of all memory. Ryoji Ikeda’s black-and-white barcode stripes flicker at high frequencies on the walls of a nearby glass building, and you are surrounded by slim figures sporting the black garb of Yoji Yamamoto, while Autechre’s Zenist electro-waves reverberate in your ears.

Yet is this enough to make you jump outside the human realm, to open untainted eyes to observe “the world without us” (1)? In fact, the fantasy of the outside (dehors) has always been a chronic ailment in humanity’s cultural genome, constantly project­ing all manners of peculiar concepts and imagination towards the two dominant temporal dimensions, the past and the future. If the goal of both Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s contempla­tions for a primitive golden age in the 18th century and Friedrich Hölderlin’s search for the homeland and fatherland in the early 19th century was to invent a point of origin that never truly existed in order to aim trenchant critique at the present moment, then the variety of utopian plans derived from literature, from Thomas More’s island Utopia to Kim Stanley Robinson’s sci-fi Mars Trilogy (1993–1996), can also be seen as paranoia about a future that cannot really exist.

Scientists have developed a new material - the first ever magnetic photoconductor - that may lead to next generation of memory-storage systems, featuring higher capacities with low energy demands.

As we generate more and more data, we need storage systems, eg hard drives, with higher density and efficiency.

However, this also requires materials whose magnetic properties can be quickly and easily manipulated in order to write and access data on them.

Collaboration is at the heart of both Artella and DUEL, the animated film of kids working together to imagine themselves in a new and adventurous world.
From an early age, children are taught a few core principles: be nice to others, be accepting, and share. To illustrate these fundamental principles, a new animated short film called DUEL. DUEL revolves around a lively cast of three kids who come together and imagine themselves in an exciting and adventurous world.

A group of former Nokia employees thinks it has a better way for you to edit photos: Loupedeck, a hardware console with sliders, knobs and switches dedicated to Adobe Systems' Lightroom software.

Lightroom has a wide range of on-screen controls for photo-editing tasks like adjusting exposure, cropping, fiddling with color and applying a star rating. Your photo takes up most of your Windows or Mac screen, and you can reach all the editing sliders and input fields by scrolling up and down a narrow strip along the right edge of the screen.

XIMEA will present several new models from super fast line of cameras based on PCI Express during the Vision show 2016 in Stuttgart.

The PCIe interface allows camera to stream data at speeds from 20 Gbit/s to as high as 64 Gbit/s over a distance of up to 300m using Fiber and without the need of expensive framegrabbers or special, complicated software. Resolution range from 4K to 8K is enhanced with integrated interface compatible with Canon EF-mount lens that allows remote control of aperture, focus and image stabilization.

First 4K model called CB120 is equipped with CMV12000 sensors from CMOSIS. With the help of new generation of PCI Express referred to as PCIe 3.0 this 12 Mpix sensor is able to reach the remarkable speed of over 330 Fps at full resolution. The camera’s data and control interface is fully compliant with PCI Express External Cabling Specifications, which allows 64 Gbit/s and real data throughput of 7000 MB/s - more than any other interface can compete with.

Second 8K model called CB500 is equipped with 50 Mpix sensor that can deliver 30 frames per second directly to PC memory. This high grade 35mm full frame global shutter CMOS has 7920 x 6004 pixels resolution and provides 12 or 14 bit crystal clear images. Camera package itself is remarkably compact with 60 x 60 x 38 mm and 175g. Power consumption reduced by design and components can be as low as 9 Watt.

Affinity Designer 1.5 is now available in the App Store for a one-off payment of £29.99. If you’re working on branding, concept art, print projects, icons, UI, UX or web mock-ups then this software offers a decent alternative to Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop Sketch - it won the Apple Design Award last year.

New features include optimisation for MacOS Sierra, text styles and symbols, a new colour picker tool, constraints, export improvements, asset management and style improvements.
