This past week, the Canadian Academy of Film & Television hosted a highly exclusive soiree as part of Canadian Screen Week. Entitled #AcademySocial, it was an interactive event celebrating and recognizing creators of original, sharable, Canadian content for digital media platforms.
At this event, the CFC Media Lab unveiled SHARD, the new app created for the ideaBOOST/Mind Pirate Production Lab. Designed for Google Glass, this applications applies live photo filters which plays with your perception of light and reality.
Our Glass roving teams spent the evening taking photos of party guests, live-filtering their image and posting it online for all to see. SHARD was a huge hit!
If you’re interested in trying out this app for yourself, on March 27th we will be launching six apps, including SHARD, from the ideaBOOST/Mind Pirate Production Lab in San Francisco. Stay tuned, as more details about how to access the app will be shared in thefuture .
Let SHARD on Google Glass reveal a whole new world. SHARD applies live filters to the world around you, changing the video feed you see with real time effects YOU control. Switch between JJ Abrams inspired lens flares to kaleidoscopic imagery. Move around, play with the effects, capture your creation in a SHARD photo saved on your timeline, and share your masterpiece with others. SHARD — play with the world you capture.
