Shutterstock Launches "View in Room" Augmented Rea

Table 20 New virtual reality experience allows iOS app users to visualise how an image from Shutterstock’s collection would look in real life. Shutterstock today announced the launch of its first Augmented Reality (AR) feature, available on the Shutterstock customer iOS application. The latest update to the iOS application includes a new "View in Room" button that allows users to access their camera phone and virtually position any of Shutterstock’s 250 million images against the wall in a room of their choosing. Shutterstock’s in-house mobile team leveraged the iOS ARKit framework to create this virtual reality experience, enabling customers to interact with the expansive Shutterstock collection in a whole new way. Shutterstock customers are increasingly using the collection in the form of in-home, in-store or in-office artwork, for retail spaces or for restaurant decor. Now, rather than imagining how a new image would look hanging on their wall, they can bring their imagination one step closer to reality by simply using the Shutterstock app to position an image virtually in a room before licencing. "We have been committed to experimenting with cutting-edge technologies for over fifteen years. After years of advancing our in-house computer vision technology to enhance search capabilities on web and mobile, we are very excited to announce our first AR-powered mobile viewing experience for customers," said Jon Oringer, Founder and CEO of Shutterstock. "This is yet another great project to have been developed from its initial iteration at our annual employee Hackathon, Hack to the Future. We decided to put this hack into production because of its potential to have an immediate customer impact." With the Shutterstock customer app, users can click a button called "View in Room" which will switch to camera mode. By holding the camera up to the wall, the app will identify the wall space and populate the image directly onto the wall. The user can then adjust the size to get a better idea of what the image would look like on the wall. The "View in Room" tool is available on the Shutterstock Customer iPhone application in the app store today.

Woodstock Festival 50th Anniversary and the Hippie

Table 04 The 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival is coming up in August 2019. Granger Historical Picture Archive looks back on the event and the hippie movement it exemplified. The hippie subculture began its development as a youth movement in the United States during the early 1960s and then developed around the world. Featuring music, recreational drugs and rejecting consumerism it has had an effect on society since the 60s. In August 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Festival took place in upstate New York, which for many, exemplified the best of hippie counterculture. Over 500,000 people arrived to hear the most notable musicians and bands of the era, among them Richie Havens, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Santana, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, and Jimi Hendrix.
