Cinema Seat Preview

CinemaSeatPreviewExperiment_03

Maybe you are familiar with those ticket booking systems where, at some point during the purchase flow, you have to choose a seat. This is usually done when selling tickets for games, movies, flights or concerts. Wouldn’t it be cool to have some kind of “realistic” preview of the seat, i.e. see the stage or screen from the perspective of the space you chose? Of course it would :) This is the kind of question that resulted into a new experiment which we’d like to share with you today.

Cool!

The State of the Union Address as a Wes Anderson film

Being a fan of Wes Anderson his films and style, I quite dig this:

With all the tradition, pomp and quirks, the State of the Union Address is straight out of a Wes Anderson movie.

Nvidia Drive PX2

Some fascinating stuff by Nvidia:

NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 allows the automotive industry to use artificial intelligence to tackle the complexities inherent in autonomous driving. It utilizes deep learning on NVIDIA’s most advanced GPUs for 360-degree situational awareness around the car, to determine precisely where the car is and to compute a safe, comfortable trajectory.

The self-driving car is also a self-learning car.

Not one feature detector was coded by hand.

Wow. I wonder how it will handle The Trolley Problem 😉

Blurred Background Generator

blurred-background-generator

This tool helps you to generate beautiful blurry background images that you can use in any project. It doesn’t use CSS3 gradients, but a rather unique approach. It takes a stock image, extracts a very small area (sample area) and scales it up to 100%. The browser’s image smoothing algorithm takes care of the rest.

The result is a base64 encoded image which you can then use as a background. Strange though that the tool is named “unique gradient generator” as it generates blurred backgrounds.

Scrapbook, PHP Caching Environment

// create \Memcached object pointing to your Memcached server
$client = new \Memcached();
$client->addServer('localhost', 11211);
// create Scrapbook cache object
$cache = new \MatthiasMullie\Scrapbook\Adapters\Memcached($client);

// set a value
$cache->set('key', 'value'); // returns true

// get a value
$cache->get('key'); // returns 'value'

Scrapbook is a caching environment for PHP. The cornerstone is key-value-store, which sets a standard interface for cache adapters to implement. All adapters hide their inner workings behind a shared implementation. Using it means you’re not just building for Memcached. Your code will work just fine on any of the other adapters, without modifications!

Ships with adapters for Memcached, Redis, APC, MySQL, SQLite, etc. Also plays nice with PSR-6 if needed
