Named after the personification of time in ancient Greek Literature, the Khronos Projector provides a new way to manipulate pre-recorded movie content.
I was just bouncing around John Sadowski's Website, which was updated literally seconds ago as I pen these words.
As usual, there are all sorts of interesting things to see, such as cool new images and mystery items (you have to guess what they are, send in your comment, and John will eventually reveal the answer).
And there are also some items I didn't have time to check out the last time I was there, but that are well worth the effort. For example, John provides a link to an online exhibition of color photographs from the early 1940s that is being hosted by the library of congress. These are really nostalgic and demand that you take a few moments to relax and ponder them.
And then I ran into an item on something called the Khronos Projector. Named after Chronos (Khronos) – the personification of time in ancient Greek literature – this is billed as: "An interactive-art installation allowing people to explore pre-recorded movie content in an entirely new way."
In this case, John provides a link to a video showing this little rapscallion in action. I'm not sure what I'd use it for, but it really is rather interesting; for example, you can use a touch-screen to manipulate different portions of an image such that they move forward or backward in time (you'll have to watch the video to see what I mean).
