Introducing Microsoft Hyperlapse, available for download at http://aka.ms/hyperlapse. Microsoft Hyperlapse lets you creates smooth and stabilized time lapses, distilling your experiences into beautiful, shareable videos. Show off footage from your hike, or let your friends experience how it felt to fly down the mountain on skis. Hyperlapse is available as an app for Android or Windows Phone, as well as a pro version in preview for enthusiasts or professionals who want to hyperlapse video from a GoPro or other camera.
Physicists at the Australian National University have created a tractor beam in water. Using a simple wave generator they can create water currents which could be used to confine oil spills, manipulate floating objects or explain rips at the beach.

The NETMIT group at MIT develops a new technology that can see through walls, performing 3D motion tracking. The technology has applications in gaming, elderly monitoring, and gesture-based user interfaces.
The making of:
This project combines the collective talents of musicians, dancers, programmers, designers and animators to create an amazing visual instrument. Creating music through motion is at the heart of this creation and uses the power of the Kinect to capture movement and translate it into music which is performed live and projected on a huge wall.
We created and designed the live visual spectacle with a music video being produced from the results. We wanted it to be clear that the technology was real and actually being played live. The interface plays a key role in illustrating the idea of the instrument and we designed it to highlight the audio being controlled by the dancer. Design elements like real time tracking and samples being drawn on as they are played all add to authenticity of the performance. The visuals are all created live and the music video is essentially a real document of the night.
