The Unseen Video – Embedding local weather and time information in a music video
One of our listeners and readers, Elaine, sent me a link to this project, entitled The Unseen Video, and it’s a pretty cool concept. The video is a music video for Mike Milosh’s song – You Make Me Feel, but what makes it different is that the video maker has tied the presentation of the video images to local weather. Before the video launches, your location is queried through your IP location , local weather and time are determined. Based on that, the video images are customized. It did a good job of pinpointing us, and played us a lovely daytime snow scene based on our forecast.
There are lots of other applications for technology like this, so check it out (if you’re at work, you’ll probably need your headphones)
