Slo-Mo & Fast-Mo Tokyo - AkihabaraNews.com

Panasonic's Lumix GH4 has Variable Frame Rate!
As any photographer knows, high-end cameras with VFR built-in allow for the rate of frames... to be like, you know, varied. And thats a good thing because non-variable frame rates aren't as cool. Good enough, yeah?

Well, no.
Actually, to really get a handle on what VFR means and why it's a super sexy camera feature, you'll have to jump over to Senior Contributor Nayalan's GH4 review, but for now, this:

Shibuya Slow- and Fast-Mo
Nayalan's flagship review of Panasonic's flagship camera includes some great video and fantastic photos for camera heads, but this little bonus is more for general consumption; it's something special.

Suffice it to say, if you know Tokyo's Shibuya ward, this will give you new perspective; and if you do not, you'll either long to visit or run away scared (too many humans!). Enjoy, and maybe like... turn it on for background at a party. 

We're totally doing that.

This is an interactive optic fiber cloth. It is made of side-emitting diffusive optic fibers so computer controlled light patterns can be displayed on it, and by attaching light receivers as well as light emitters, optical signals can be input using infrared light.

"Originally, we came across the light-emitting fabric, where light is emitted from the optical fiber surface. Conversely, we thought it could be used to input data by receiving light through the surface. So, we've created this kind of interface."
