    What I Did Over Winter Intercession, or My Week at Famo.us Labs

    What I did over winter intercession

    Between semesters, in addition to all the housekeeping that keeps our department running, some full-time faculty enjoy building projects to explore new tools and enhance the student learning experience in the coming semester. One such project of mine reached its culmination during Demo Night 15 (January 22nd, 2015) at Famo.us Labs.

    Famo.us is a JavaScript platform with the potential to become a core technology in WNM student projects. With its own 2D and 3D rendering library and physics engine, Famo.us abandons the HTML5 approach and instead renders everything via JS as sibling elements, directly on the DOM.

    WNM Downloads - Form by Relative Wave

    Form by Relative Wave is something you should try. This is a really great tool that is perfect for mocking up animated user interaction. It allows you to design motion and interaction and immediately see the results on your iPhone or iPad. You can even package the results as a file and share these with others. Best yet, it's free!

    Form had been $80. Which is pricey enough to keep someone from buying it, unless they had a definite plan using it in mind. It was recently bought by Google and is now free.

    While Form only works on Mac and iOS at the moment, It's my guess that it will be available for Android, and possibly Windows in the near future.
