Sign up for a periodical compendium of what’s exciting to me in the creative technology world, once a month or so.

This batch of inspiration is being prepared from the exit row of flight AA2421 as I transition from the 75-and-analog world of Miami Art Week back to the 57-and-digital kingdom of San Francisco. The trip wasn't very "creative tech", so I'm posting some of my favorite artwork from Miami on Instagram. For the newsletter we have some new photogrammetry projects, a killer device to for glasses-free 3D, and a couple of longer reads to settle into during your holiday break.
The magicians at Looking Glass have scaled up their holographic display to make it even better for multi-user glasses-free viewing of 3D content.
Your wedding guests are snapping pics anyway, so use photogrammetry to build a model from the images. Then your grandkids can attend the ceremony via their embedded VR implants in 2050.
Also on the photogrammetry thread, use a single phone to capture models of objects, buildings, or city blocks to explore later in VR, or on that Looking Glass you put on your wedding registry.
Using machine learning for interaction and identification can be hard to ramp up on, but Teachable Machine has been upgraded to help classify images, sounds, and poses in a way that integrates quickly with popular frameworks.
If you want to explore machine learning but don't know where to start, this talk by Kyle McDonald is an excellent survey of what the tools are good at and how to get into them. Bookmark this to cuddle up with over your holiday break.
