For all the issues with the Duo Camera on HTC's flagship One M8, the selective focus thing is pretty fun to play with. With the newest update to the HTC Gallery app in the Play Store, M8 owners can share Duo Camera images to the web that anyone can use to change the focus. It's sort of like those Lytro camera embeds.
Now, you can share with your friends your images with 3D-effect or Ufocus images as an interactive image online. It's a software trick, but it's more reliable than most similar solutions on other devices. In the updated Gallery app, just share your Ufocus edit and you can embed the image anyplace online. It's also hosted by HTC.
In order to access this feature you'll need to Update your HTC Gallery App from the play store.
As a Marketing plan, Google is set to light up a giant Interactive billboard in New York City. Powered by Mitsubishi Electric, the Diamond Vision AVL-ODT10 display will become the largest electronic billboard to ever grace the iconic Times Square.
The display is located on Broadway, not far from the search giant's HD in Gotham. It measures a whopping 329.65 feet x 77.69 feet. In addition to being the largest ever digital billboard on Times Square, the engineering marvel is also the biggest in North America to date.
The resolution of the display is 10,048 x 2,368 pixels. So, I wouldn't expect any miracles in pixel density. The latter is not exactly as relevant in this case as it would be on the devices we interact with every day given the sheer size of the thing.
The billboard is set to go live today with an interactive game for the public that will run until Tuesday. Users will also be able to create Androidify characters on site and put them on T-shirts and postcards.
