What an interesting idea: researchers are using bokeh (lens blur), instead of sharpness, to transmit lots of data into cameras (think barcodes/QR codes on steroids). Check out the demo:

Better PS Techniques mag comes to iPad

The folks behind Better Photoshop Techniques magazine have put together an interactive iPad version using Adobe’s new Digital Publishing System. Publisher Philip Andrews notes,

It is called DI Magazine and is now available as a free download on the iTunes AppStore store. It’s the first Photoshop magazine of its type in the world and has the great augmented reality ‘back cover’ that we trialled with the print magazine earlier this year.

Stories include photos from Lightroom team member Kelly Castro. The app is a free download from the App Store.

Incidentally, I know people are hungry for more info about when they can get their hands on InDesign-to-tablet publishing tools.  I don’t have any inside scoop to share, but with Adobe MAX coming next week, I’m hoping we’ll see more info soon.
