Demo of the NOS Mobiel Olympics client

August 11, 2008

I got some requests from people to upload a demonstration video of the Olympics Mobile Application which is part of NOS Mobiel.

Well here it is..

Shot with my N95 (sorry)

Will try to get a decent quality movie up here soon.

Mobile Olympics application LIVE! ;-)

August 6, 2008

As some of you know we work for NOS, the dutch news and sport broadcaster. I have been busy last months to build a great mobile application for them called NOS Mobiel. On top of this application we also developed an Olympics application (which is integrated in the navigation of NOS Mobiel the coming weeks). I must say that I am very proud of the result. Together with the NOS team, Triple IT (video encoding) and the client platform (WeComm) we made a hell of an application 😉

So what content is in this application?

  • Newsfeeds(dutch and general)
  • Radio Olympia
  • Programming (what is LIVE now and what is next?)
  • 12 livestreams straight from Beijing (with adaptive and fastchannel switching, streams are 115kb and 200kb 3gp streams)
  • Dynamic screenshotsof from the live streams(refreshed every 3 minutes)
  • Video on Demand (Highlights, ceremonies)
  • Medalscore
  • and some really fancy interaction elements..

Today we launched. Have a look at the screenshots. Video can be only watched by people in Netherlands IP range

Short Video: Is It a Phone or a Magic Wand?

July 9, 2008

The history and Future of Mobile handsets in a 3 minute video. Found via Bruce Sterling at Tarina.

The future of mobile phones is perhaps… not a mobile phone at all, but rather a contextually aware and active mobile magic wand. It’s not about skins anymore. Not even about features, open source, multi-touch or iPhoney. It’s about who is going to make the device interact with your environment as well as capturing it in context. It’s a wand, I tell you. You know what, it’s going to talk with the clouds rather than with native applications. It might or might not link with the global brain.

But what I know for sure, it’s going to combine cloud computing, augmented reality and the internet of things in a meaningful way.
