● Perhaps in the future images/photographs can be created in Gimp with 3D touch sensoring textures.

Warning about Google Chrome.
Microphone continues to record even when shut off.
Google has not fixed this problem since it was reported several months ago.
Seems it is deliberate and they got caught.

RE: Videos - Color Picker and 3D sensor
Nice finds!

The IRL color picker reminds me of the cube camera that can record multiple focal(focus points) after you take the picture, depending on where you touch the screen(background or foreground) or through the app.

Heres a cool review with a demo, there's more on their site

To any chrome users that want a temporary (definitely safer) way to fix(workaroudn) this
There is an option to "Block all" or "click to play" plug-ins. I recommend users use this to blacklist/whitelist plugins or just activate them for a tab session.

Only click on the puzzle icon with a red x in the address bar & only click "run at this time" to run all the plugins on the page if needed (ads sometimes need to run to watch some video sites, etc.)

When its on...
Chrome Settings > Advanced settings >
- Under "Privacy"
Content Settings > Plug-ins "Click to play" or "Block All"

"Click to play" Replaces any plug-in based item on the webpage with a place holder & a puzzle icon in the middle. You can click it to activate it (flash or java for example, some sometimes you'll need to "run this time" from the address bar)


"Block all" is a similar option & maybe even more secure.
With the click to play option, you can accidentally activate a placeholder/box.
This one has the same placeholder, instead you right-click the place holder & click "Run this plug-in" for a one time per page load use.
Or you can click "Hide plugin" to hide it for the session to save on screen space.

These can also dramatically speed up your browsing if you have a slow network/connection because it won't load any plug-ins until you say so.

Amazing camera! I watched both videos on the page.
Thanks for the links iForStyle007!


I don't use Google... I now use startpage.com or ixquick because they are more secure.
No Google Chrome for me. The info you provided will help others... however I don't trust Google and I believe the settings (GoogleChrome settings and other outside settings) will just be overidden by Google (and hackers) so that they will always be snooping and recording.

Thanks for your detailed input iForStyle007!
