Here's a cool tool that brings something fresh to the world of viral video (for a good month or two, at least ;-) - Personiva. Personiva allows for the creation of branded content that can be personalized by the viewer, for the viewer. For example you might upload a photo of you, Personiva integrates it inside a specially-made commercial, and you get to watch a TV ad featuring you.

Check out HP's "Make computer personal again" and experience it yourself.












From the Personiva web site: "Personiva technology - recognizes faces, composites video, delivers dynamic imaging, creates interactive web interfaces, personalizes mobile messaging, drives e-commerce, measurable and ready-to-go."

While the experience is certainly new, its current application doesn't strike me as something that will last (the Levi's example on their site wasn't all that impressive), but I salute the idea. I do hope they find a way to push this a lot further.

This is brilliant (no pun intended). Philips came up with textile-integrated led lights that can create animated light shows and display advertisements, or time - "without compromising the softness or flexibility of the cloth", as they report in this video. There are so many possibilities - altough I wonder if you could input a message in your shirt, yourself ? Now that would kick ass.
Once again, kids (and you know what I'm about to say) more PROOF that we are in... TEH FUTURE!

The Blue Men once again, telling us in their own special blue way that we need to save our blue earth. A nifty video, for lack of a better word. Enjoy. (Thanks, AdArena!)
