Multiple Account Switching Coming to Instagram; Disney’s Drone Based Flying Movie ScreensPosted: February 5, 2016 | |
A lot of people have multiple Instagram accounts…like one for their ‘public’ face, and another for their inner circle of friends with funny selfies, drunk pix, and the like. TechCrunch.com says Instagram started testing multiple account switching for Android last fall, and now has expanded that beta test to iOS. It should make it much less of a hassle to switch from your ‘finstagram’, or fake Instagram account to the real one with just a click of a selector at the top of the screen.
There’s a reason Disney calls some of its geniuses ‘Imagineers’…they cook up things you haven’t even imagined and bring them to life. Geek.com reports that Disney has patented drone-based flying movie screens. They would fly up to 50 drones at a time, with a perforated rear projection screen made of something like polypropylene. The holes allow airflow, so the drone can maintain position even with breezes. A wide angle mirror reflector picks up the light and image from a ground based projector. Imagine the California Adventure night show viewable in mid air, and you get the idea.
