JISC Elevator – Bringing Ideas to Fruition
http://elevator.jisc.ac.uk/

 JISC elevator is a platform for crowd sourcing ideas that will use technology to improve education and research in UK higher and further education institutions. The purpose of JISC elevator is to allow JISC to fund innovative projects that will be valuable to higher and further education. Once an idea has been submitted to the site, people working and studying in UK higher and further education (with an .ac.uk email) will be able to vote if they like the idea. When an idea receives the target number of votes then we will decide whether or not to fund the idea. This crowd sourcing mechanism will allow us to respond to the demands and needs of those working and studying in higher and further education. The combination of crowd sourcing and small agile projects allows ideas to be focused tightly on solving a particular problem that is experienced by many people at a range of higher and further education institutions. It also enables experimentation with new ideas and technology that appeal to a large group of people while keeping costs and risks low.

Newsle – News About Your People

Newsle – News About Your People
http://newsle.com/

Newsle is a web app that tracks people in the news. Newsle finds articles about you, your friends and colleagues, and anyone else you care about and notifies you minutes or hours after they’re published. Newsle’s private beta launched in January 2011, and was covered by TechCrunch. The current version is a major evolution of the original concept. Newsle now combs the web continuously, analyzing over 1 million articles each day – every major news article and blog post published online, as well as most minor ones. Newsle’s core technology is its disambiguation algorithm, which determines whether an article mentioning “John Smith” is about the right person. Newsle only indexes publicly available news articles. They do not search for personal records, criminal records, phone numbers, addresses, or other private information.

Photosynth – 3D Tools

Photosynth – 3D Tools
http://photosynth.net/

Photosynth is a powerful set of tools for capturing and viewing the world in 3D. You can share these views with your friends on Facebook, publish them to Bing Maps, or embed them in your own Web site. Photosynth offers two styles for creating immersive 3D experiences: synths and panoramas. Choose a panorama when you can capture everything from a single location with a single zoom level. Great for giving a sense of what it feels like to be in a one particular place. Can be 360° in both directions, but doesn’t have to be. Simple to navigate – all you can do is go left/right, up/down and zoom in/out. Good for capturing different sides or details of an object. Synths were the original experience on this site, and they remain its unique feature. More complex to navigate than panoramas because you are moving from photo to photo.
