Canola video from the World Usability Day

So Marcelo Oliveira posted a video to YouTube of him demonstrating Canola at the World Usability Day here in Recife. The video shows one of the concepts that we have used to develop the new Canola, more specifically the photo view and the new player view (including cover arts). It also shows our kinetic list, which has evolved a bit since our prototypes.

High quality version at Blip.tv

Most of what is shown in the concept is already implemented and fully working. I especially love the photo view, and when the concept was first presented to me, it rocked me away; but it also left me scared for a moment.

How to implement this in a way that it is usable and fast of the N800 device? Lots of problems came up as anticipated, but Leo Sobral has been working hard and has come up with a lot of clever solutions, and I must say that his work has been bearing fruit - the result is just astonishing, and it is now a joy viewing my photos on my N800!

The audio view is also quite nice, especially the cover view, which lets you view your music by album, showing tracks and album cover. The actual player has also evolved, and it now feels a lot slicker.

Though, it mostly looks the same, all of the code is new, and Artur Souza has been hard at work making sure that everything works smoothly and fast, but he will tell you a lot more about this in an upcoming blog post.

During the last week, I have been busy working on adding support for podcast, but now I'm back at working on the mapping view for at least a week. Afterward, I will try blogging about the podcast support.

Oh, and now to forget...

...our new framework provides scaling with very little work; imagine what the future might bring ;-)

Is this Canola running inside a VM? If so... would you explain or point the right direction to how you set this up?


Kenneth Rohde Christiansen said...

Nope, it is just running on the desktop ;-) It runs perfectly on the device as well (N800 so far, but we also had it running on N770)

It is all python - multi-platform!

Blink Blonk said...

Ok. Cool. That's much easier!

This project looks great, by the way ;) Keep up the excellent work!

Setanta said...

Totally awesome! And the cool part is that I just have to walk to your room to try it in the real world. \o/

Christian Louboutin brand now has owned Gucci, some designs for men and women fashion which reflect their true elegance and confidence. Their bag and shoes are sought after by people all over the world, it is also a fashion trend. Christian Louboutin brand can be found in online Tory Burch Sandals store, you have a lot of rich choice to buy.

Studies have shown that high-heeled shoes, but more people walk straight body, emitting a more self-confidence, make people feel comfortable.Both the collection of the closet, or a new shoe rack, can always find a lot of double-sexy high heels. For professional women, this is an indispensable work baby. They bring confidence, charm and elegance.

Fashion is a word, which changes its meaning and the way it looks from person to person. Did you ever try to find out what makes fashion rather fashion sense such an individualistic trait? There are many reasons out of which few can be figured out quite easily. The attitude with which a Tory Burch Wedges person carries his or her ensemble changes the way it looks from one to another. Another thing that matters is the body structure. One thing might highlight a good feature for one and a not so good or some other good feature for another. Imagine a Christian Louboutin high heeled pair it might show good pair of long legs for one or the skin tone for another. A Christian Louboutin Replica (might sound like a weird idea however it is a very cool alternative for those who do not want to pay a humungous amount) can be used to get that extra elevation in height.

The best present for lover’s birthday is Christian louboutin shoes which can show you love to her. The red sole has almost become the most popular unique product and almost every Tory Burch Flats party and awards ceremony, some celebrities choose them to walk through the Red Carpet, and the red sole makes Christian Louboutin looks so sexy and one of the fashion icons.

From then on, i am totally crazy about the christian louboutin shoes, every time, i have the demand of wearing the high heeled shoes, i will firstly consider it as it's comfortable and very fashionable. As most of my dresses are a sexy savour, so christian louboutin shoes can match well with my dressing.

Christian Louboutin shoes have become the most popular reason is that famous trail. You will see all these fabulous designer shoes on species A-celebrities. Just pick up any fashion magazine and see if they like Naomi Watts, Nicole Kidman, Janet Jackson, and beautiful people wearing them. You may even find a young actress wearing them too. I think if your feet are large enough, then the age is not a problem.

Shoes high heels in fashion for a long time, they are here to stay. Women love high heels, it will not stop, even if the pain caused by their shoes. Find heel height for you, although work. Even a little heel makes you look sexy. Therefore, you find a suitable high heel shoes in every Tory Burch 2011 color. Shoes are very practical and high heels and higher, so you look slim. So to wear high heels and hobbies, because they just so sexy!

Many super stars are interested in Christian Louboutin, including the gossip girl Blake Lively and Victoria Becham. How could it have the charming to make more than 3000 females own more than 500 hundred pairs of Christian Louboutin pumps in the world? It is a miracle. You will never know how it Tory Burch Boots feels until you truly own a pair of Christian Louboutin.

Avoid steep high heels. Some high heels, toes have a sharp decline from the heel area. Relatively steep slope here,and the bow more stable and less contact and support. The more gradual slope,the better adapt.

Have you ever heard the christian louboutin shoes ? If not, you can search in the Internet for the detailed information, it will not bad to know more information, right? :) Christian louboutin shoes is know of course for it's good quality and unique style. And its feature is the red sole which is so special.

But you know even it's under discount, but it's also very expensive, and i don't have so much money at that time since we bought too much other things. But when i decide to give Tory Burch Flip Flops up, one of the christian louboutin shoes catch my eyes and i think it's so beautiful. No other way, i borrow some money from my friends, but the interesting thing happened, other man also love that kind of christian louboutin shoes and we almost said at the same time that " i want that shoes". OMG, what can i do? But as lady first, he give the chance to me which increase my feeling for him. And my wonderful traveling end perfectly. But what's more, i seen that man in one of my friends' party who is called Andy, the world is so small. Haha.....

Except for the style and height, you should consider the price of your women heels. If you are in budget, you really should think about how much you are going to spend on your women heels. And if you have a nice pair of heels in your mind, you should try on them for a moment in the shop. Even every Tory Burch Heels aspect fit you very well, you should walk around the store in them to make sure they fit you perfectly.
