Physical Rehab via Kinect for Xbox 360: make it happen in Haiti!

Posted by Administrator – May 17, 2011

Vectorform_Kinect_Rehab_Demo
I love Vectorform because:

  1. We built a demo for physical rehabilitation via Kinect for Xbox 360
  2. That demo stole the show at a tech demo day by Kaiser Permanente focused on gamification because it presented a fun way to support physical rehab and exercise for kids, and tracked response accuracy
  3. The mastermind behind using Kinect for literacy in South Africa made us aware of the Haitian Amputee Mother’s Alliance
  4. Asked if we could possibly help, I presented their work providing prosthetic limbs and rehabilitative services for victims of the earthquake to my boss, who gave me a two-word answer:
  5. Do It.

Posted by Administrator – April 12, 2011

Vectorform-Foursquare-Playground-Mix-
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.

Business 2 Community on Foursquare Playground, Vectorform’s busy month

Posted by Administrator – March 17, 2011

“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.
