App of the Day: Be My Eyes

bemyeyes-app

This app made me a little emotional; it’s so beautiful. Be My Eyes allows volunteers to lend their eyes to blind people! A blind person simply requests help, a volunteer helper receives a notification, and the two are connected via live video. The request may be for help identifying the expiry date on a carton of milk, or assistance reading a street sign.

Be My Eyes is non-profit, and exists solely to help make a difference in the lives of blind people. Watch the video below.

Stop-Motion Animator Dillon Markey Transforms the Nintendo Power Glove into Something Actually Useful

DillonMarkey-powerglove1 DillonMarkey-powerglove3DillonMarkey-powerglove2

Dillon Markey, an animator for Robot Chicken and PES (he co-animated that incredible short “Fresh Guacamole”), took an old Nintendo Power Glove and turned it into the ultimate tool for making stop-motion animations! I thought this was going to be a joke, but it is entirely real and practical (okay, minus the sound effect). How long until this ends up on Kickstarter?

Watch the video below.
