…It’s Website Wednesday: PopScopic?

PopScopic

PopScopic is an interesting mashup that uses augmented reality to enhance your shopping experience.

On PopScopic, you can print out three symbols that are linked to the top ten lists for music, movies and games. Then, just fire up your webcam and put one of those symbols in front of it, and you’ll see the cover art from the top ten list projected in front of you. You can tilt the paper to change selections, and then just tap on the $ sign to visit a page where you can buy that item.

It’s not a world changing experience by any means, but it is a peak into the future of shopping, and it’s fun and easy to play around with, so check it out!

…It’s Website Wednesday: The Uniform Project?

Uniform Project

The Uniform Project is a campaign to raise money for the Akanksha Foundation (a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India) in which Sheena Matheiken will wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion.

Though she’s wearing one dress, there are seven identical copies of it so that she can have a clean one each day of the week, and each day, Sheena will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Aerial Virtual Tour Of New York?

Aerial Virtual Tour Of New York

PixelCase’s Aerial Virtual Tour of New York is an amazing look at the Big Apple from above thanks to the combined photography of Oleg Gaponyuk and Andrei Zubets.

Once inside the panorama you can look around and zoom in and out, and when viewed in fullscreen, it reminds me a lot of the intro scene from The Dark Knight that was shot in IMAX, including the slight knot you’ll get in your stomach if you’re at all afraid of heights.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Joobili?

Joobili

Joobili is an interesting idea in travel: You tell them when you want to go, and they’ll tell you where.

The service keeps an active database of unique and fun events that are going on around the world, and then matches the dates you have available to the things you can go do/see. From there, you’re just a few clicks away from booking your trip and embarking on the semi-unplanned adventure of a lifetime.
