“Apple has a long tradition of introducing breakthrough products with features that really matter to people. Apple Pay, combined with MasterCard’s payments technology, gives consumers an easy, secure and private way to shop”

MasterCard worked with Apple to deliver a seamless and secure payment experience. For consumers and merchants alike, that means that every purchase made with a MasterCard using iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch will offer the security, benefits and guarantees of any MasterCard transaction.

Apple Pay transforms mobile payments with an easy, secure, and private way to make purchases. By integrating Apple hardware, software and services, Apple Pay creates a unique and incredibly intuitive experience for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch users.

“AppleWatch”

Apple and Tim Cook brought back the “One more thing” for this landmark event.  Apple’s wearable device won’t launch until next year. That said, Apple’s software interface for the Apple Watch is what sold us. The design is not innovative. In fact the Moto360 is much more intriguing in terms of design. Remember when the iPad came out and there were only a few apps? Well developers this is your time to get ahead of the curve. Start developing those apps ASAP. A $349 starting price point means the device is more expensive than other smartwatches on the market but when has Apple ever cared about price?

What happens when you use thermal cameras to record F1 cars race? Pure coolness that’s what.  If you drive a F1 race car, you are pretty much riding on a fireball at G-force speeds. How fast and how dangerous is this machine? FLIR captured Red Bull Racing’s RB8 Formula 1 racing car with a FLIR x6580sc infrared camera. The results are scary and fantastic all at the same time.

Irma’s music video is projection-mapping done right. The artist new music video is filled with creative eye candy to keep you looking forward to the next sence. The wonderment of this video is that it was done in one continuous shoot. The Irma who is a Cameroonian singer also does the visuals justice by adding her lovely voice to the song Save me. French design house SuperBien came up with the concept and design. International super directors Xavier Maingon and Marc-Antoine Hélard  handled the direction the video would take.

The whole thing took place on a single a single soundstage. The team used 7 digital projectors to do the projection-mapping on the walls.  Getting all this wonderfulness in one shot took some work. Alright, that is an understatement. It took a whole lot of work. 25 takes worth of work. Each time someone missed a queue everyone would have to start over again. I hope the kids on some Pinkberry after shoot was over.
