Depth Blur Webapps

A couple of projects that explore your photos taken with the recently updated Android camera app and it’s Depth Blur feature.

As mentioned last week, the new Android camera app can now compute depth maps with the taken image for photo manipulation, particularly to create depth-of-field like effects. Some coders have been playing around with this feature so that people can play around with the images.

DEPTHY (top GIF) by Rafał Lindemann is a lot smoother than some of the other attempts at the same thing - click an area to add focus and move the cursor to alter the ‘perspective’. [Link]

Depth data viewer by Jaume Sanchez Elias takes the data and attempts to display the image as a 3D scene. It isn’t a perfect representation and depends on how well the original photo was taken, but it certainly is interesting where the results are taken too. [Link]

FYI - For iOS users, it maybe worth checking out the Seene app which does something very similar

Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

On Earth Day, These Photos Remind Us Just How Little We Know Of The Planet We Call Home

Happy Earth Day! Every year on April 22, the world celebrates this amazingly diverse planet we call home, focusing on ways to protect it from the often destructive practices of its human inhabitants. While many of these efforts focus on the conservation of Earth’s most fragile habitats, we frequently forget just how extreme and alien-like our own planet can be. The photos below showcase Earth’s unbelievably varying landscapes and remind us that we often live our lives confined only to a minuscule part of this amazing planet.

I saw this on Upworthy today and all I can say is rock on Amy Poehler! One of my favorite pieces of advice in this is when she says to talk about your own body like you were talking to your sister or friend about theirs. Such a great perspective! I say look in the mirror and become friends with that person - it will be good to have them when you’re ready we in life or need to celebrate and be happy. Love yourself :)
