welcome to my world

Multimedia

I graduated in 2007 in Multimedia Studies and since then Multimedia has been my life. Mainly working with Audio Visuals, I have also been developing websites for clients and personal projects. 

Being a Multimedia person, I love reading and learning about everything related with technology. Yes, I'm a bit of a geek and am very proud of it. I love my gadgets and am always looking for the next thing. Sometimes some pieces of equipment make my heart bit much faster and I can't sleep until I have them in my hand. The main cases were the first iPhone (although I only purchased it when the 3G one came out) and more recently the Android Wear, I'm a proud owner of a Samsung Gear Live (although my first sleepless nights were about the Moto360, I couldn't wait forever Motorola). 

On this section of the website I will not only be showing you the websites I have designed/developed but also talk to you about what is new in technology and much more.

Prezi

Prezi is a presentation tool that is here to replace Power Point. I am experimenting with it and here is a small example of what you can do with it.

GoPro 360: Another Step Forward in Technology

We have all seen 360 pictures where we can click and drag around to see what is on the other side of the image. What about the same with videos? Well, GoPro is working on it. They created a mount where you can add 6 GoPros and go for it. I'm not sure yet how they do the editing to put the images together but the result is amazing. I guess the next step will be a 6 way camera instead of 6 GoPros. Check it out bellow. (higher resolution stream reduces speed)

 

 

Don't forget to click the video while playing and move it around

Soyuz undocking, reentry and landing explained

It is fascinating how we have been able to discover more and more of the Universe. Astronomy is something that fascinates me and many people.

I have been curious about how Astronauts come back to Earth from the International Space Station (ISS). Today I found a video that explains the process and it is amazing to watch. Here is the video that explains the Soyuz capsule undocking, reentry and landing. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
