Tojio Relaunch: Neue Agentur Website und ein neuer Blog

Wir haben eine neue Website (www.tojio.com) und auch einen neuen Blog. Der läuft nun nicht mehr in einer Subdomain (lab.tojio.com), sondern wurde in die neue Website integriert: www.tojio.com/news-blog. D.h. auch, dass dieser Blog hier zwar online bleibt, aber nicht mehr weiter von uns betrieben wird.

Unique ID for each node in an XML file [en]

Well this is just a little, everyday task: I'm currently working on the Sto International Website and needed to modify an XML file so that each of its nodes has a unique ID assigned. The fastest way to achieve this is a very simple XSL transformation like the one below: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"     version="1.0">     <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" />     <!--         This stylesheet just assigns a unique ID         to each node in the XML ...

Free high resolution images of hyper realistic 3D medicine pills, injections and blood bottles [en]

I made those images using 3D Studio Max, Illustrator and Photoshop. The fillings consist out of five diffrent colour themes: acid, lovely, retro, funky and psycho. You can download the images (pills.zip) (injections.zip) (blood_bottles.zip) and use them for whatever (Flyer, Poster, Screendesign, ...) you want. Feel free to email us a sample of your work.

WiiFlash interactive Ribbons and some other WiiFlash examples [en]

WiiFlash Ribbons uses the mouse, or if connected, the pitch- and roll- data of a Wiimote as input for this little Papervision3D experiment. The source code is based on Ribbons3D by Felix Turner and Line 2.0 by Mark Barcinski. Click here to have a look at the result (use your mouse, or, if running the newest WiiFlashServer, your Wiimote as input device). You can also download Wiimote Demo Ribbons.zip ...

Simple Webcam motion detection using bitmaps and filters [en]

After playing around with blob detection and somehow not getting it fast enough a neat little solution came up from Emil Korngold. Using the built in Adobe function 'getColorBoundsRect' for the BitmapData object is so much faster looking for 'Blobs'. (Thanks! I had a look at that when starting and then forgot all about it. Sometimes the simple things are just too far away). To get a usable ...
