9 Mind-Blowing Canvas Demos

The <canvas> element has been a revelation for the visual experts among our ranks.  Canvas provides the means for incredible and efficient animations with the added bonus of no Flash; these developers can flash their awesome JavaScript skills instead.  Here are nine unbelievable canvas demos that will make your jaw drop!

Hospy.co

1.  Zen Photon Garden

The Zen Photon Garden demo is the epitome of mind-blowing.  This epic canvas demo allows for drawing on the canvas with reactive light streams, allowing the user to see the end product of their new line will be.  Even better, this demo allows you to save and load output.

Canvas Demo

2.  Tear-able Cloth

The Tear-able Cloth demo has set the web alight over the past few months and for good reason.  This demo is the smoothest you’ll see and considering the task it accomplishes and the how little code is involved, it will take your breath away.  There’s more to it than simple pulling and physics — the animation and needing to account for pulling hard enough to elegantly animate a tear makes this demo even more amazing.  A perfect illustration of canvas’ capabilities.

2014-10-10 12_54_43-9 Mind-Blowing Canvas Demos

3.  Particles

It’s hard describe this demo outside of “ftw”.  This demo animates color, position, connection lines, and opacity, all the while animating smooth as a baby’s….it’s really smooth.  Marvel at this beast.

2014-10-10 12_55_45-9 Mind-Blowing Canvas Demos

4.  Motion Graphic Typeface

I wish I could describe how this effect is done but I can’t.  I see that each letter is comprised of different image data, but that’s about it.  What I can say is this animation is absolutely mind-blowing, as letters animate into place and the aspect at which you see the text depends on your mouse position.  Shocking.

2014-10-10 12_56_37-9 Mind-Blowing Canvas Demosasd

5.  Motion Graphic Typeface II

As if the first wasn’t impressive enough, the second MGT demo is one worthy of a Pulitzer Prize. I’d give up my second, third, and eighth-born to be this clever.  Not only does the text animate but there’s an incredible colored blur that’s part of the animation.  This demo is truly a sight to behold.

2014-10-10 12_54_43-9 Mind-Blowing Canvas Demos

6.  Gestures + Reveal.JS

Now only did this demo blow my mind, but it also blew my CPU.  This exercise uses your device’s camera and microphone to move a cube of data based on gestures.  If you have a MacBook Pro, you shouldn’t die before trying this out.  Start the demo and flail your arms about — you’ll se the demo content move about and then start believing in spirits.

7.  Free Rider 2

You can’t cover the awesomeness of canvas without including at least one game.  Canvas is arguably the future of HTML5 gaming, as Firefox OS will soon demonstrate.  This brilliant but simple bike game shows that canvas is ready for prime time!

Canvas Demo

8.  30,000 Particles

The 30k Particles demo incorporates some really awesome stuff:  circular shapes (radius), animated exploding and returning particles, and mouse listeners to allow the user to control the explosions.  An excellent example of interactivity and logic.

9.  HTML5 Video Destruction

I must pay homage to one of the first truly eye-catching canvas demos I saw — an explodable canvas video.  You click the video and pieces explode, yet the video keeps playing its segment/position during the explosion while it returns to its original position.  An inspiring demo to to all of us.

PHP Twitter Application tutorial

Creating Twitter Apps in PHP

In this post we will look into accessing Twitter REST API in PHP. This can be useful if you need to post Tweets from your PHP application or anaylze, search Tweets. In the following examples we will use the twitter-api-php PHP wrapper for Twitter v1.1 API. Although there are a few wrappers around, this one I like for its simplicity.

Installation

If you use composer, here’s what you need to add to your composer.json file to have TwitterAPIExchange.php (Twitter PHP wrapper) automatically imported into your vendor’s folder:

{
    "require": {
        "j7mbo/twitter-api-php": "dev-master"
    }
}

You’ll then need to run ‘composer install’.

If you don’t use composer, just download the zip from git and include TwitterAPIExchange.php in your application path.

Registering your Twitter app

Before writing any code, you will first need to create a Twitter app and register it onhttps://apps.twitter.com/. You will be greeted with the following screen. (The following screenshot shows you an existing app. If this is your first app than the page will be blank).

twitter-app-1

Click on the ‘Create New App’ button and enter the required details in the fields provided. Leave the ‘Callback URL’ field blank for now. Once the app is created, click on the app name and note down the various access and security tokens, we will be needing these later. Change your Access Level to ‘Read and Write’. ‘Read Only’ access does not allow you to update, add or delete Tweets. If your purpose is to only read tweet data, it is safer to set the Access Level to ‘Read Only’.

Note that you will need to regenerate the access tokens if you change the Access Levels anytime and modify the same in your PHP code.

twitter-app-2

Accessing the Twitter API from PHP

Now that you have created and registered a Twitter app, we can now use PHP to acccess the API. First include the ‘TwitterAPIExchange.php’ class and set various security tokens collected earlier.

require_once('TwitterAPIExchange.php');
 
$settings = array(
    'oauth_access_token' => "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN",
    'oauth_access_token_secret' => "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET",
    'consumer_key' => "YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY",
    'consumer_secret' => "YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET"
);

For this example we will be using the ‘https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json‘ resource url. This returns a collection of the most recent Tweets posted by the user indicated by the screen_name or user_id parameters. This particular method is one of the dozens of various methods available to access and modify Twitter data; others can be found here.

A complete GET request method is shown below. Here we are requesting the recent 3 tweets for the user ‘johndoe123’.

$url = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json";
$requestMethod = "GET";
$getfield = '?screen_name=johndoe123&count=3';

Once we specify the request methods and fields, we can call Twitter.

$twitter = new TwitterAPIExchange($settings);
 
$response = $twitter->setGetfield($getfield)
                    ->buildOauth($url, $requestMethod)
                    ->performRequest();

The complete code is shown below.

<?php
 
require_once('TwitterAPIExchange.php');
 
$settings = array(
    'oauth_access_token' => "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN",
    'oauth_access_token_secret' => "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET",
    'consumer_key' => "YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY",
    'consumer_secret' => "YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET"
);
 
$url = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json";
$requestMethod = "GET";
$getfield = '?screen_name=johndoe123&count=3';
 
$twitter = new TwitterAPIExchange($settings);
 
$response = $twitter->setGetfield($getfield)
                    ->buildOauth($url, $requestMethod)
                    ->performRequest();
 
print_r($response);

Executing the above code will return the recent 3 tweets for the given user in JSON format. You can specify the number of tweets to return using the ‘count parameter. The maximum that can be returned is 200.

$getfield = '?screen_name=johndoe123&count=3';

Note that all GET fields for this method are optional. Not specifying any GET parameters will return 20 recent tweets for the current user, i.e the user with the given access tokens. You can query without the GET parameters as shown below.

$url = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json";
$requestMethod = "GET";
 
$twitter = new TwitterAPIExchange($settings);
 
$response = $twitter->buildOauth($url, $requestMethod)
                    ->performRequest();
 
print_r($response);

Also, the response is returned in JSON, so will need to decode the JSON first before working further.

$tweets = json_decode($response);
print_r($tweets);

The tweet is stored in the ‘text’ field of the response, so we can enumerate all returned tweets with the following. Various other fields can be accessed in similiar manner.

$tweets = json_decode($response);
 
foreach($tweets as $tweet)
{
    echo $tweet->text . PHP_EOL;
}

Posting a new Tweet

Posting a new Tweet can be done with the following code, which uses a POST method instead of a GET. The initial code remains the same.

<?php
 
$url = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/update.json";
 
$requestMethod = 'POST'; 
 
$postfields = array(
    'status' => 'Testing Twitter app'
);
 
$twitter = new TwitterAPIExchange($settings);
 
$response = $twitter->buildOauth($url, $requestMethod)
                   ->setPostfields($postfields)
                   ->performRequest();
 
print_r($response);

There are additoinal parameter you can use, the details for which are given here.

Searching for Tweets

Searching for Tweets based on a query is as easy as the above examples. Here in the following example we query for the ‘laravel’ keyword and ask o return 10 statuses.

$url = "https://api.twitter.com/1.1/search/tweets.json";
 
$requestMethod = "GET";
 
$getfield = '?q=laravel&count=10';
 
$twitter = new TwitterAPIExchange($settings);
$response = $twitter->setGetfield($getfield)
                    ->buildOauth($url, $requestMethod)
                    ->performRequest();
 
$tweets = json_decode($response);
 
foreach($tweets->statuses as $tweet)
{
    echo $tweet->text . PHP_EOL;
}

API rate limits

One important point to consider when creating your app is of rate limiting. Twitter limits the rate at which you query using their API. For example search will be rate limited at 180 queries per 15 minute window. More information can be found here.

Important Note

If the above examples do not work you will have to make a small change in ‘TwitterAPIExchange.php’. The curl processing part (around line 192) requires the line ‘CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER => false,’ to be added. So the curl part in the file should read the following.

        $options = array( 
            CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => $header,
            CURLOPT_HEADER => false,
            CURLOPT_URL => $this->url,
            CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER => false,
            CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
            CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 10,
        );

 

Windows 10, #Windows10 conference

Everything You Need To Know About The New Windows 10 from Microsoft

As expected Microsoft MSFT -0.17% has formally announced the new version of Windows. As no-one expected it will be called ‘Windows 10’ not Windows 9. Why? Because Microsoft claims it represents such a significant leap over Windows 8 that calling it Windows 9 would not do it justice.

I can hear your groans now, but in Microsoft’s defence Windows 10 has some major (and long awaited) improvements. Here are the highlights:

One OS To Rule Them All

Architecturally the biggest news is that Windows 10 is being designed to run across all device form factors. That means desktops, laptops, tablets, phablets and smartphones.

“Windows 10 will run on the broadest amount of devices. A tailored experience for each device,” said Terry Myerson, Microsoft Executive VP of Operating Systems. “There will be one way to write a universal application, one store, one way for apps to be discovered purchased and updated across all of these devices.”

Microsoft didn’t break down when we might see a Windows 10 smartphone and how that would impact/absorb Windows Phone (or even elaborate on the future for Windows Phone) but it does offer to clear insight into Microsoft’s long term road map.

Update: Microsoft has now confirmed ‘Windows 10′ will also be the next major version of Windows Phone. What devices get the upgrade and how Microsoft will handle it remains to be seen. 

Windows 10 Start Menu

The Start Menu Is Back

The cat has been out the bag for some time, but Microsoft has finally confirmed the Start Menu will return. The leaks were spot on and it will combine both aspects of the classic Windows 7 start menu with apps from the Metro/Modern UI. Searching within the Start Menu will now perform a web search as well.

Crucially its layout can be customised so apps can be removed or resized and the flexibility and personalisation potential of the Start Menu should win back fans disillusioned about its removal in Windows 8.

Windows 10 use on a tablet

Better Touch/Keyboard And Mouse Integration

Microsoft has taken criticism seriously about the jarring nature of moving between touch and the keyboard and mouse elements of Windows 8.

Microsoft is calling the new approach ‘Continuum’ and it is an umbrella term for a better merger between to different input methods. Continuum will be able to automatically switch between modes by detecting on how users interact with their device. It also carries over to design aspects like the new Start Menu, windowed apps within the desktop and so forth.

“We’re trying to be thoughtful about a UI that goes across all devices,” explained Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President of the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft.

He admits Continuum remains a work in progress with refinements to things like the Charms Bar (yes it is still there) set to be an ongoing process through the life of the public beta and right up to release (more on that later).

Windows 10 Virtual Desktops

Virtual Desktops

Another leaked feature Microsoft confirmed today was virtual desktops. Microsoft didn’t give the feature an official name at this stage, but it works much like the long used multiple desktops on Linux and Exposé on Mac OS X.

The view can be triggered with a new ‘task view’ button which both allows users to launch a new virtual desktop and jump between them. Interestingly the taskbar can be customised to look different/relevant to each desktop allowing a simple leap from work to home modes, for example.

Microsoft said all open programs in the virtual desktops will continue to run in the background, which makes for some interesting memory management challenges but also greatly increases the potential productivity of Windows as well as de-cluttering the desktop space.

Pricing / Availability

It has been much speculated that Windows 10 may be given away free to upgraders or involve a nominal fee, but Microsoft revealed no information about this in either the presentation or Q&A afterwards.

What we did learn is a technical preview of Windows 10 will be made available to users later this week (Microsoft is stressing it is only for advanced users and developers at this stage) and that an official release would not follow until ‘later in 2015’. This suggests the OS is not as far along as many expected and Microsoft is keen to develop it in conjunction with user feedback.

Windows 10 Start Menu search

What Will Still Don’t Know: A Lot

Perhaps what is almost as interesting as what was revealed about Windows 10 is what Microsoft kept to itself.

In addition to no news on pricing, Microsoft also didn’t touch on performance (install size and minimum hardware requirements), Cortana integration (the voice assistant in Windows Phone 8.1), give a solid release time frame or go into any detail on how Windows 10 will handle scaling on high resolution screens – crucial given 4k monitors and super high resolution laptops are quickly gaining momentum.

On the flip side what we did see is a more open Microsoft. A company, perhaps shaken by the decidedly mixed reaction to Windows 8 (however fair or unfair), that is now keen to try and mix the best aspects of Windows 7 and Windows 8 into a more user friendly experience. This means releasing early builds, issuing rapid fire updates and developing in conjunction with ongoing user feedback.

Windows 10 Product Family (image credit: Microsoft)

Is choosing the ‘Windows 10’ moniker a step too far though? “It’s a name that resonated best with what we’ll deliver,” explained Myerson.

Many would argue the struggles of Windows Phone and Windows 8 have put Microsoft into a terminal decline, but tonight’s announcement – while thin on details – suggests there is still life in the old dog yet.

Windows product family, windows 10 launch

Microsoft’s next OS is Windows 10, will ship later in 2015

Instead of announcing the next version of its iconic operating system in front of a massive crowd of thousands, Microsoft chose an intimate venue with 50 or so reporters to launch the new Windows, which it’s calling Windows 10. The company looks at the new number (yes, it skipped a number) as an indication of the direction it’s taking with the OS; Microsoft says it’ll be “the most comprehensive platform ever,” featuring a full range of products that’ll be placed under the Windows 10 umbrella as part of “one tailored experience.” That means it will support everything from the “Internet of Things” to enterprise servers. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore showed off an early beta version of the new Windows on stage, which looks very much like the leaked screenshots we saw not too long ago; Belfiore says that they wanted to bring the familiarity of Windows 7 and combine it with the functionality of Windows 8.

Windows 10 new Start screen

Windows 10 will run across an incredibly broad set of devices – from the Internet of Things, to servers in enterprise datacenters worldwide. Some of these devices have 4 inch screens – some have 80 inch screens – and some don’t have screens at all. Some of these devices you hold in your hand, others are ten feet away. Some of these devices you primarily use touch/pen, others mouse/keyboard, others controller/gesture – and some devices can switch between input types.

When you put all that together, the end result looks a lot like Windows 7. That’s intentional. Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore pointed to the millions of customers still using Windows 7, and said the company wants to make their transition to Windows 10 much more comfortable than the unfamiliar leap to Windows 8 two years ago. “We want all these Windows 7 users to have the sentiment that yesterday they were driving a first-generation Prius, and now with Windows 10 it’s like a Tesla.”

“Windows 10 will deliver the right experience on the right device at the right time,” said Microsoft’s Terry Myerson. “Windows 10 will run on the broadest types of devices ever.” You can expect a unique user interface depending on what you’re running Windows on; images shown at the event line up with leaks that have surfaced in recent weeks. It’s basically a combination of Windows 7 and 8 that borrows design elements from each of Microsoft’s two most recent operating systems.


The new Windows 10 start menu.

The “Metro” start screen and Microsoft’s traditional Start Menu have been combined; no longer is the screen one huge grid of tiles for desktop users. “The tiles and icons that are shown are a blend of classic apps and new universal apps,” Belfiore said. But Live Tiles are still here and can be resized to a user’s preference. More than anything else, Microsoft is working to make everything feel way more cohesive. “In Windows 8 when users launched a modern app, it sort of had a different environment,” Belfiore said. “We don’t want that duality. We want users on PCs with mice and keyboards to have their familiar UI.”

There’s a new universal search in the start menu that pulls in results from the web, and Microsoft is also talking up its “task view,” which helps users master Windows’ multitasking features. It looks fairly similar to Expose in OS X and allows users to set up different desktops for work, home, and other usage scenarios, switching apps between them at will. Up to four apps can now be snapped on screen, which also should ramp up Windows 10’s multitasking power. Microsoft outright admitted this isn’t entirely an earth-shattering addition. But it is intended to speed up your productivity across the entire operating system. “It illustrates for Windows we have to address a breadth of users,” Belfiore said, moving on to show a big improvement to the command prompt: it now supports paste.


Windows 10’s Task View.

But Microsoft isn’t abandoning touch input. Belfiore said the Charms bar from Windows 8 has been carried over to Windows 10 with improvements of its own. “We want to support those Windows 8 users who have touch machines and getting a lot of benefit out of them.” For convertible devices like the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, Microsoft is adding a new Continuum mode that aims to make the frequent switch between tablet mode and laptop mode more seamless. “What you get is a device that operates with the simplicity of a tablet, but morphs itself back to the familiar PC experience,” said Belfiore.

Microsoft will launch a Windows 10 “Insider Program” beginning tomorrow, which will give its most enthusiastic and vocal users a chance to try out and help shape the new OS before the general public gets it. Windows 10 will launch to consumers everywhere in late 2015. And today was only the beginning; Microsoft says it will unveil much more about the new consumer features of Windows 10 early next year.

Futurama in 3D is absolutely stunning

Futurama in 3D, Animation, Computer Animation, Illustration by Alexey Zakharov

Whoa. Artist Alexy Zakharov re-imagined the world of Futurama in 3D and transformed the cartoon into a complete stunner. It makes me want to watch a movie version of Futurama set in this world right now. Hell, it makes me want to cryogenically freeze myself so I can live in this world when I wake up.

Using 3ds Max, Nuke, Photoshop and After Effects, Zakharov was able to create a ‘test shot’ to see what his Futurama would look like. It’s so awesome. Here it is in full:



Inbox launches as an open-source email platform

Inbox app - email platform

Email is a painfully out-of-date technology, but it’s not going anywhere. A new startup, Inbox, is launching its “next-generation email platform” as an alternative to aging protocols like IMAP and SMTP.

Before you email junkies get too excited, this is a platform play, so there’s no user-facing app just yet. The core of Inbox’s efforts is an Inbox Sync Engine for developers that adds a modern API on top of mail providers, including Gmail, Yahoo and Outlook.com.

The engine itself is open source, but Inbox is planning to release a hosted SaaS version of its platform later this year. In the meantime, developers can get started on building apps and clients with their own installations.

The Inbox team is comprised mostly of MIT alumni. CEO Michael Grinich worked as an engineer at Dropbox and a designer at Nest, while co-founder Christine Spang previously worked on the Linux kernel at Ksplice. The firm’s seed investors include Fuel Capital, SV Angel, CrunchFund, Data Collective, and Betaworks.

Inbox emerges just weeks after Gmail announced its own API. However, Inbox touts its own service as a better option because it is open source, supports multiple providers and is built by an “email company” rather than an “advertising company.” Zing.

We’re always on the lookout for a killer solution to the email problem, so we’re eager to see what developers come up with on the Inbox platform later this year.

Motorola G isn’t coming until January in India

Motorola G - Delayed release in India

Motorola G – Delayed release in India

For all the people out there in India, waiting eagerly for the release of the awesome budget phone Moto G in India,

Hold your horses!!!.

We’ve heard motorola replying to the eager buyers who wants to get their hands on the Moto G machine since it was announced way back in 2013, that it wll be launched in early January 2014.
But while everyone were done partying the new year week, seems Motorola was still on the hangover,  and forgot the most awaited release in India.

We’ve seen some people getting responses from Motorola social representatives and the responses went from saying “It will be release in early January” to “Will be released later this month”. And this makes us think that if a product couldn’t be released after few months of announcements, how can it be released in couple of days.

Anyway, we’ve received another tip from Motorola that predicts that the Moto G isn’t anywhere around the days, or weeks.
Below is a screenshot of an email received from the Motorola Sales department (India).

Motorola G release launch in India - Email from motorola customer care

 

What do you think, when will the product be actually launched?
Would it be worth waiting further for the device?
