The objective: to build a “toothbrush-bot” or a robot made of toothbrushes. This wacky activity took place at the event Ignite Nuremberg at the Zentrifuge Art Gallery in Nuremberg, Germany, in February 2011, where ten teams of members that did not know each other previously had to execute said task in 45 minutes. There were awards for the prettiest, the fastest, and the funniest. Although, not everybody was a winner, everyone had fun, and the activity set the stage for the remaining acts of the conference. The contest was captured on camera by Martin Goldmann (RedGo.Tv) in his vimeo “Battle of the Bristle Bots”, and it is accompanied by music from Frank Herrlinger, available at the Proud Music Library.
Panoramic virtual tours are made with stitching software. They are meant to present a landmark, building, room, or object from all 360 degree angles. Used to advertise for example, hotels, houses, museums, and shops, they project views very similar to the way in which dancers twirl and travel across different spaces.
Panoramic photography is becoming more and more important in the business world. Do you wish to sell your house? Chances are that you will perceive more potential buyers if they have a better idea of the layout of the rooms and how they connect. One particular company that specializes on panoramic virtual tours is Virtual Surfers GmbH, with offices in Munich. Its Managing Directors, Stephan and Christina von Bressensdorf have been experimenting with this kind of photography since 2002, and we are happy to include them among our clients.
For a Panoramic virtual tours of the Lindner Hotels in Munich, they used the completely royalty free track “Piano Athmosphere” (C: Andres Lutz) from the Proud Music Library.
Music produced by Proud Music’s own Frank Herrlinger provides the background of this documentary on Evi Sachenbacher-Strehle. The name of the piece is “Route 1210.” Evi is a member of the German national Cross-country skiing team and is presently training for the World Cup in Oslo 2011 with Peter Schlickenrieder, himself a former Olympian. Nowadays, he appears regularly on the German Television show “ARD-Buffet” on ARD. In these videos, it is undeniable that an athlete of such caliber as Evi’s needs to train year ‘round, and you can see Evi training in the summertime with inline skates.
