Toronto Tourism has created a “cheating wall” where visitors can see via video screens into Montreal, and vice versa.
Equipped with video and audio, it’s a live portal enabling people to even chat with their counterparts in the other city.

Using four Kinect sensors and some heavy duty realtime processing, 3D videoconferencing has been set up at University of North Carolina.
3D is the latest gimmick when it comes to watching TV, but this is something beyond novelty. Apart from making the “tele” part seem more realistic, the system can use “mixed reality” to track eyes in 3D space. This opens up the door to more serious applications not just about how we’re perceived, but about how we blend our natural communication methods with digital ones.

Dance Writer translates text into mesmerizing movement. Originally an iPhone/iPad app, it’s now an online tool for sending elegant animated messages.
Where’s the value in this? Sure, it moves slowly and is probably best reserved for short messages. But there’s something captivating about it and the possibilities of visual storytelling.

“3 Dreams of Black” is an interactive film by Chris Milk for Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s ROME album.
Chris Milk was also the director behind Arcade Fire’s amazing Chrome-experiment-music-video “Wilderness”.
For “3 Dreams of Black” Milk used WebGL technology which brings hardware-accelerated graphics to the browser, without the need for additional software. Chrome is one browser that supports WebGL.
You can read more about it on Google’s blog: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/05/3d-dreams-in-modern-browser.html
