Rose City Comic Con 2014

I attended the Rose City Comic Con on Saturday (on Sunday I was at the Oregon International Air Show). I am posting photos from the Rose City Comic Con on my Flickr page and will also be adding 3D photos there soon, as well as on the Phereo 3D photo sharing web site (which as a “universal” 3D viewer).

Nearly all my photos are taken with permission of the subjects. There are a few exceptions, either noted on the Flickr photo information, or where “group” photos were being taken at the Rose City Comic Con backdrop (even there I tried to ask). All my photos are distributed under a Creative Commons 4.0 license, meaning they are free to download and use for personal use and sharing with friends and family. Commercial or media use of any photos is not permitted as none of the subjects have given permission for that!

Open Platform Community cameras from Olympus

Open Platform Community cameras from Olympus.

It’s an interactive initiative for users of Olympus’ new open platform cameras.

Anyone can hack, share, and join in on the fun. So come and share your experiences and photos taken using these revolutionary cameras.

I do not know much about this – yet – but am hoping it is what I think it is! This could be big – think of what independent software has done for the iPhone or Android or Windows platforms. Software created a massive ecosystem of features and accessories.

Two years ago, I spoke to every camera company except Olympus (could not reach them during their financial mess) about doing something like this. And then boom- Olympus steps forth! Good for them!

You can now attach your iPad directly to your face

These virtual reality device news stories featuring VR helmets and head mounted facial covering displays are promoted by the people who said that 3D is dead because consumers do not like wearing “3D goggles” (I am not making that up): You can now attach your iPad directly to your face to experience virtual reality | The Verge.

Look at the sample photos – try not to laugh – and realize that those who thought passive, lightweight 3D glasses were too much now think this stuff makes sense.
