Mozilla Bespin is great. With the embedded version and jQuery you can create a live coding editor with two lines of code.
Florian Jenett invited me to give a talk about AR, cultural heritage, user experience and open standards at Basis Frankfurt yesterday. Here are the slides. Images are following.
I worked with Processing and Arduino for years and appreciated the cmd-r shortcut for running the project. This is what i was missing for years while editing X3D files in TextWrangler and running in InstantPlayer. Finally it only took me 10 minutes googling and scripting. The result is brilliant: cmd-r and my X3D file opens in InstantPlayer. I hit Esc and it returns to TextWrangler.
This is how it works:
1. Download and copy the script “Open in Instant Player.scpt” (remove .txt) into TextWrangler’s Scripts folder (~yourhome/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/Scripts) -> It now appears in the Script Menu.
2. Open in TextWrangler “Window/Palettes/Scripts”
3. Select the “Open in InstantPlayer” script
4. Click “Set Key…” and define a shortcut (mine is cmd-r)
PS: Enable “Allow tab key to intend text blocks” in “Preferences/Editing: Keyboard”, too!
“If I had a share of AOL for every time someone said the same thing about how no one would use the Web because it was too nerdy and AOL was so cool and easy, I’d have millions of shares, and they’d be worth basically nothing.”

Jens and i wrote the first AR demo based on WebGL and X3DOM. It uses FLARToolkit / FLARMaganger for marker tracking and renders via X3DOM. The superimposed model is a globe with NASA satellite texture with live clouds.
I could not attend in person but i gave a speech via Skype at AR Dev Camp in Frankfurt today. The talk was about my augmented reality projects, user experience in AR and open standards for sustainable AR.
Hugo was so nice to show me around at the dev camp:
I was surprised to read my name in the current Der Spiegel’s cover story about Google. They wrote about privacy issues of today’s mobile phones and used TwittARound as an example. That’s great because TwittARound’s intention is social criticism, too.
