Here I am with Dr. Bill Crounse of Microsoft’s Health Tech Today, “a weekly online series providing cutting-edge stories at the intersection of health and information technology.” Yesterday’s interview with Dr. Crounse focused on three of Vectorform’s medical solutions: our Windows Phone 7 Mobile Med; Sony MD2GO, which runs on Windows 7, Windows 7 Slate, and any broswer-based, multi-touch enabled device; and a demo for kids’ physical rehab via Kinect for Xbox 360—which I performed on-camera!

Last month Microsoft released Internet Explorer 9 at SXSW, and partnered with foursquare to launch Foursquare Playground, an experience designed and developed by Vectorform. Foursquare Playground is a virtual world of check-ins, where buildings grow, avatars drop by in real-time, and the mayor’s portrait hangs on every wall. We were thrilled to see Foursquare Playground as the first featured site during the IE9 keynote where Microsoft exec Ari Bixhorn highlighted Foursquare Playground’s use of the HTML5 geolocation capability, Bing Maps integration, and real-time check-in data.
Ever wonder what it takes to keep a multinational company full of artists, engineers, and oddballs moving along at a good pace? It’s a long answer to a short question, but we recently gave Redmond Magazine a small peek behind the curtain for Paul Korzeniowski’s “Will Microsoft Reshape Business Intelligence?”

We are very pleased to join the ranks in General Electric’s ecomagination challenge, a $200 million innovation experiment where businesses, entrepreneurs, innovators and students share their best ideas on how to improve our energy future… There’s some brilliant stuff going on over there. A solar-panel roadway? External window guards from recycled materials? Drop by and see ideas, work and progress toward a more sustainable future, and let us know what you think about our submisison, A Green Austin (AGA).
“SXSW has been an exciting — albeit busy — time for global design and technology firm Vectorform. Not only did they take home the SXSW Award in Technical Achievement on Tuesday night for their involvement with the AP Timeline Reader, but they’ve also teamed up with some major brand names (think Foursquare, Microsoft, and Fiat’s brand agency, Impatto) to provide users a cutting edge experience.” Renee DeCoskey hits the nail on the head, and goes in-depth on our HTML5 experience, Foursquare Playground, over at Business 2 Community.
Check it out, and while there, we also recommend B2C’s coverage of Foursquare’s growth from six to seven million users, all between January and February of this year. With Foursquare Playground officially open for business, it will be interesting to see what March and April bring.
As for our work with Foursquare, Microsoft and Fiat/Impatto, it is a busy and exciting time. Our next SXSW spotlight hits on a Fiat brand experience, and the continued efforts of the Vectorform squad in Austin, Texas, so stay tuned here.Administrator – March 15, 2011
We heard it from our guys on the ground at South by Southwest as they were walking offstage. The AP Timeline Reader created by Vectorform won the SXSW Interactive Award for Technical Achievement.This means our work is officially the digital experience that is “re-inventing and re-defining the technical parameters of our online experience,” according to SXSW.
The HTML5/CSS3 experience is a revolutionary way to visualize, customize, and consume the news. We were anticipating a win, as were our friends over at Business 2 Community, but it is always a great feeling to have an award in-hand. Dominic Espinosa, Vectorform’s man on the ground, picked up the award. Fitting, as he was lead interaction designer on The AP Timeline Reader, and also because he also led the all-new, much-loved Vectorform project Foursquare Playground, which debuted yesterday to celebrate the launch of Internet Explorer 9 . Our entire team is thrilled by the win. “Yea, that’s right, baby!” Espinosa says.
We’re proud to be recognized with this award, and delighted to take some time to recognize the amazing work being done by our team. But now its back to work, because the thing about re-invention is that it never, ever stops.

The Qatar Motor Show was the place for leading auto makers to see and be seen last week, and Vectorform Germany’s Alissia Iljaitsch and Job Plas were onsite helping Volkswagen debuted our latest collaboration—an iPad application full of specifications and media for vehicle product specialists, and slick functionality. The content-managed iPad app was a hit with the visitors on the booth, who could access the extensive glossary and request digital brochures via email. A full content management system for VW admins and a clever spin on iPad’s natural user interface made the Volkswagen Motor Show App a hit, and our team loved being part of the VW entourage, which was rounded out with a luxury SUV with gold finishing (the Touareg Gold Edition), and Dakar 2011 winners Nasser Al-Attiyah and Timo Gottschalk.

We’ve teamed up with award winning writer and director Lance Weiler.

We worked with some amazing folks, one of our latest collaborations is with Medic Mobile and Hope Phones, a real-world charitable group featured within the Pandemic 1.0 deployment. We can’t tell you exactly how they relate to Pandemic 1.0 yet, but do a little research on The 4636 Project, and you might just figure it out. We love what these guys are doing, and we think you might too.« go back — keep looking »
