TowTruck is a service for your website that makes it surprisingly easy to collaborate in real-time.
When a user comes to your site, they’ll be able to activate the TowTruck tool and send a link to a friend to start collaborating on the web site.
TowTruck has collaboration features like cursor-mirroring (allowing you to see your friend’s cursor on the screen in real time), collaboratively editing forms and text, browsing through the site, and both text and real-time voice chat.

Real-time business information, such as current occupancy level and music loudness, can be invaluable to mobile users planning an outing. Crowdsourcing, via real-user check-ins, can gather such information to be displayed in search or to be indexed to provide more detailed real-time business metadata.
Planetary Annihilation brings Real-Time Strategy to a new generation of gamers in a way they’ve never been seen before: Total Annihilation-inspired gameplay on a planetary scale.

Real-Time Media and Peer-to-Peer Transport API
Unofficial Draft 10 August 2012
This specification describes a proposal to bring real-time communications capabilities to web browsers. It addresses four critical requirements: it is designed to honor the key tenets of the web architecture, it supports a customizable response to changing network quality, ubiquitous deployability on existing network infrastructure, and flexibility in supporting popular media formats and codecs, as well as openness to future innovation.
An API is described for sourcing and terminating streams of real-time media in a browser. The API provides a means of describing how media streams are serialized into a stream of RTP packets or deserialized from a stream of packets.
The API is structed in two sections: Real-Time Media Streaming and Real-Time, Peer-to-Peer Transport.

Augmented Reality Sandbox:
Video of a sandbox equipped with a Kinect 3D camera and a projector to project a real-time colored topographic map with contour lines onto the sand surface. The sandbox lets virtual water flow over the surface using a GPU-based simulation of the Saint-Venant set of shallow water equations.
Virtual Dam Failure and Fun with Water :
Another AR sandbox video, showing how to build and fill up a large reservoir to simulate a dam failure, and just general messing around with virtual water.

C&A offered a solution to a big problem among women: insecurity when shopping.
After all, what woman never wished for a little help choosing the right clothes?
