  • opahan666 says:

  • cormacorp says:

    open frameworks is awesome, i believe vidzone on ps3 was made with only like 2 people with open frameworks, very exciting

  • theguymjp says:

    2:47

    That's the internal workings of the PS3 Eye Camera! Good choice I say... 120fps with a 1 frame lag.

    Now I know I'm a geek... lol

  • wiscasset22 says:

    she just sounds so intelligent, but she is still entertaining.
    :)

  • HewbertLarzToast says:

    But geeks will rule the world,so that's a good thing :]

  • captain0blivious says:

    That is totally fucking boss! Such a cool concept and it's even cooler considering that they're realising it.

  • tycobrahe says:

    What a voice. Go Elspethjane. The standard others must reach for.

  • Gbjerke says:

    ohh what a soothing voice she has

  • WizardShiz says:

    so HHHHHOw did you get you SSSTart

    i get you dawg i get you

  • Leonardo says:

    Ellie is covering interesting stuff lately.
    That said, the IQ font is a poor outcome of computer vision. If looking at the font (as in 2:18) nobody can honestly claim to see the link between the font and the running car that originated those shapes (but by a considerable stretch of mind), what's the point to resort to computer vision as opposed to ordinary design?
    Isn't it an extravagant stunt by Toyota? We can go along with it, as long as we keep the bigger picture of the type of commissions which are at the source of these undertakings.

  • etbitmydogucf says:

    I prefer this chick over mememolly too. Molly got old after seeing her videos.

  • nimabanai says:

    cool, I like this chick WAY more than Molly, but she's cool too.

  • MachineSaysNo says:

    Open Framework seems like the new python, which would be awesome! Open source owns the interwebs! oh and Try paying attention to the story and not just ellie(who is TOTALLY hot)

  • Cannabinoidl says:

    ya i admit i was distracted a couple times, as im sure he was, guys have a hard time not reacting in some way to the presence of a beautiful woman... we enjoy it

  • kiriconan says:

    shes hawt

  • Quincy217 says:

    Ellie has a beautiful neck. By far the most attractive part of a woman. Keep up the profile shots.

  • MustRunFaster says:

    I'd be willing to bet the majority of people watching Ellie's video are watching them for Ellie rather than the actual content of the video.

  • Jack says:

    Wow. Hawking needs this. Someone should write to him. He can only move like his eye.

  • pharmajoe990 says:

    What an unreal idea.

  • TamsosPadaras says:

    Ha ha... the guy kinda afraid of her... look how is he sitting... like ready tu run away any time ^_^

  • jamesh gee says:

    what have you for twisted chains?

  • Ramzi says:

    I seriously can't wait to come to NYC for college so that I can go to a workshop. I'm isolated here in Memphis,TN! :(

  • barttool says:

    she's in the UK, i think she hasn't been fired. hope not.

  • BilliLovesMargot says:

  • JeffNiggy says:

    Yet another very awkward ending.

  • NovaScene says:

  • Cjenpewpewfail says:

    I agree. Ellie is beautiful and stunning. Her laugh and smile are great.

    Molly can suck it.

  • VideoGamer945 says:

  • arabnerah says:

    i doo

  • nunjacko says:

    Rofl only one comment on this page on the topic...
    Well Ellie is beautiful yes but just try to find her blog or something and not spam all the new ROCKETBOOM videos :/

  • rexx1888 says:

    molly's better....

  • karmaburna says:

    hmm yeah the difficulty is the eyes are twitchy. the only time i can get mine to move smoothly is when they're locked onto a moving object...

  • GelFeatherweight says:

    I can see how someone could draw with their eyes. All they need to do is add some auto- smoothing options.

  • QuakeQuake8 says:

    its like you people have never seen a pretty girl before..get outside

  • vipersrules says:

    lol@hacker

  • rabbiskullmaster says:

  • titanphyer666 says:
