Some cool innovations

Came across a few interesting "test-mode" innovations today...

Magenn Power
is working on a floating air rotar system....rationale is that wind is a lot stronger higher up in the sky...think one main challenge is that they gotta fix the axis of rotation to fully capitalize on the wind flow (judging from this video):

Another one is this Virtual Cable company that tries to put the Google Map street view thingy right into the windshield of the car...

Cool magnetic sculpture

Playing with ferrofluid..

WebCam tracking

The video is abit amateurish...but it shows one of the applications similar to the infra-red camera multi-touch videos from Johnny Lee (blogged here)...looks like a new wave of sign language geared for "mid-air" computer interface manipulation is in order...

Cool animation of Jean Nouvel project in Paris

Gets much cooler halfway through the video!
