Finding Spirituality in the Philippines

@ VOL 11 ON APR 30, 2014

Amberly Young talks about her travel stories. She was in the Philippines and missed her flight. Miraculously, she had found a wonderful place to volunteer: Bahay Kalipay, a raw food yoga detox center, which means "House of Happiness" in Tagalog. She lived at the center for two months. She taught creative writing and during her stay she had a spiritual awakening. It was a day she made lifelong friends who she will be going back to visit for the rest of her life. It was a day that has changed the way she see the world.

Making Stuff is Tough

@ VOL 11 ON APR 30, 2014

“Since our launch in January, the Poppy community has captured thousands of 3D images,” said Ethan Lowry, co-creator of Poppy, “and now they can share these with anyone, regardless of whether they own a Poppy or any other 3D viewing device.” Poppy GIFs are a big step up from a similar technique you might have seen before known as “wigglegrams”, where a left and right image are looped forever, causing an illusion of 3D and a headache. Poppy GIF animations are easy on the eyes and convey a strong sense of three dimensional depth. It’s like looking at a 3D scene through a piece of glass. With Poppy, creating these images is incredibly easy.
