260MC Reflection/Analysis. T2

260MC, was the longest yet interesting module, I have taken yet. Starting slow with a vague perception of film history,  I’ve learned that nothing in media those days, can be original, yet we draw from the past,  inspiration and we combine it with our vision, to create “our style”, witch basically means that we have left a footprint  in the media industry. This module was a true inspiration, and it made me think professionally.

Term two was all about future, and how we, as  a young generation, can change the world, and make it  better. I started term two stepping, outside my comfort zone, and thinking outside the box. We  were assign, to  invent,  a new technology, prototype, website, app, that somehow will change the way we see things. 57% of  the students, chose to create an app, that is  related to university, and  make a easier life to  media production students. This  says a lot about the youngest generation witch is  that technology became a part of society, and  people  uses their phones,app, everyday, at any hour of the day. Phonesarena.com, says that ” Face to face communication and voice calls are actually less and less popular, especially amongst the young crowd where each teenager receives around 88 text messages per day on average. Those are staggering numbers.”

Conform SocialCubix.com ” There are 6.8 billion, mobile subscriptions worldwide.”


In the first week, I though about creating an app, in order to, build a community, followed by my second idea, witch was  an experimental art gallery, and using it in order to get more people interested in the arts industry (click here to know more about it ). After the  verbal feedback I’ve got from my tutors, I’ve decided to finally go with something more futuristic, and I came up with  X100, a laser camera, witch  is able to film, and take photography  by  shooting a pulse of laser, and analysing the environment, and  it will be able to  use holograms to play it back to the audience. ( more details about X100).

The goods about  X100, are that is using a new technology that is not yet on the market , (3D HOLOGRAMS), is able to film with laser,  you have full control of the image( it changes your perspective,you can shift the living picture in any direction; left, right, up, down and all around), and it gives you and the  users, a whole new world, and a  camera that knows it all.

There  are some issues with this camera,  witch the  research that it needs to be done, before creating it, preparing the world in order to accept  a change, the price witch, in the releasing year will be  higher, and not many, will have, that amount of money, to spend on a new technology, and the biggest issue, is that the camera will  take a long time till the release, and from my  research, 2030, will be the year for X100, as  most of the technologies that, this camera  uses,   were already invented in 2009, 2010, 2012.

Term two, from 260MC, was  all about future, and all about changing the world. Is the most interesting module I have taken, yet  it made me realise, that, at this point of time, my ideas, are not involving  the meaning of ” changing  the world” as it should,  yet I think  the idea that I’m presenting is a bold move, and from those 200 hours,  I’ve learned  a lot about the history of media, technology, and how it influences, the way we live today.

Jacob Aron, says in his article for  newscientist.com that ” The virtual currency is about more than money – the real innovation is what people are doing with the technology it is based on.”
