It’s Like Websurfing, *Without* the Web!

This weekend, I managed to get to the beach for some surfing for the first time in a very long time. I took my dad’s old Challenger Twin Fin, which, while weathered with many years’ use, still performed admirably despite the dings and repairs made to it over the years.

The waves were excellent - as the tide came in, they started breaking far out with a nice barrel forming near the jetty. I managed to stand on the surfboard only once, my dad’s board being un-waxed and me being too lazy (and having to much fun) to leave the beach and go buy more. So for the most part, it was really too slippery to ride any way other than kneeling. (We did manage to find some wax in my cousin’s beach locker after we were done for the day, so we applied it and should have a much better time next session, in terms of board stickiness).

I also managed to do quite a bit of body boarding, though my tricks are a bit rusty and I was relegated to simply cutting along the inside of the wave and seeing how fast I could go. The sense of speed you feel as the water pushes you along is hard to describe as anything other than one of the best feelings in the world.

As I sat on the beach watching the sea darken as the sun sank behind me, I thought about how cool it would be if someday virtual reality and computer simulations ever came at all close to being able to replicate the feeling of surfing. With all of the advances we’ve made over the years in graphical capability, as well as the recent push for 3D display technology in PCs and televisions, it seems that simulating an advanced, realistic environment is a priority in display technology in the future. Imagine if we could also simulate motion, touch, smells; the possibilities are endless. Not only in entertainment, either. Imagine how great a virtual medical simulation would be if the doctor using the simulation felt truly “in” the environment, rather than using a proxy like a mouse or joystick controller.

I think the medical and entertainment industries can push each other forward in this regard, so the common person may eventually experience feelings like surfing, flying fighter jets, or going into space - it’s really just a matter of how much we can innovate. So let’s keep pushing virtual simulation technology forward!

DDA’s Savvy Conversions

The holiday weekend came and went, and I managed to discover a new shade of red for my skin. But while I forgot to apply my sunscreen when running around on the beach this weekend, I was noticing how many people brought their iPads, iPhones and other mobile touch devices to the beach with them.

The mobile market is booming, with Apple leading the charge. Obviously, then, it is beneficial for a company to have a website that is properly formatted for an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad screen. There is a problem here, though; if you have a Flash-based site, it is by default not compatible at all with Apple devices. That means any Flash on any page will need to be converted to Apple friendly code - something that can be both difficult and tedious. Fear not, however, because at DDA we’ve made it our goal to bring this very useful conversion service to you!

DDA’s AppleSavvy program will help companies of all sizes maintain a strong presence on the mobile internet. From format conversion to complete Flash-to-HTML overhauls, DDA aims to keep you competitive in the mobile market and beyond!

Morning Coffee

I’m curious as to how many people wake up in the morning without having any sort of tea, coffee, or other caffeinated beverage. Its probably not many! Morning coffee is such an important part of the life of anybody who wakes up earlier that 7AM to get ready for work - it seems that without it, many of us simply can’t function! Or else we function tiredly…

Consider DDA Medical “morning coffee” for your medical organization. A DDA website will jump-start your web presence,  launching your web traffic and hits into the stratosphere. DDA Medical’s customized virtual medical simulations can provide valuable insights and advanced training for medical professionals and medical students alike. Virtual medical simulations are a great way to interact in 3D space with areas of the anatomy that aren’t normally accessible.

The great thing, too, about virtual medical simulations is that they allow for an idealized study environment; Our artists can adjust the textures, lighting, and many other aspects of the simulation to enhance clarity, separate different portions of the anatomy, or do many other things you couldn’t realistically accomplish in a lab. Progress can even be tracked on your customized DDA Medical website to allow professors and colleagues to see what you’ve studied and any notations or insights you may have made.

So the next time you sit down with your morning coffee, consider DDA Medical and what it can do for your medical organization!
