Ever look up into the night sky and try to comprehend the massive size of space? That enormity is not just outward, but inward. Just peruse the “Composition of the human body” article on Wikipedia to behold that fact. Approximately 7 x 1027 atoms are in the human body. That’s a number with a lot of zeros. This week’s free Hype template starts with only three classically illustrated atoms. But with Hype Pro “Symbols”, it easy to make many more.
Many years ago, when Hype first launched, it didn’t quite do anything. Hype was lacking a critical feature — relative timelines. The Internet is interactive, but Hype had trouble reacting dynamically. That changed with the version 1.6 update. That is when the true potential of the software became apparent. Understanding relative timelines is critical in mastering Hype, which is why the “Colors” template is now available.
While future development is not guaranteed, the plan for Widgets and Apparatuses is to create a total of 50 widgets. What will the final list look like? For many years, the “Abacus” template was held in reserve. The idea was to make it part of a multitool app. Today, no longer! An abacus isn’t appropriate for Widgets or Apparatuses, but it is great tool for learning about Hype. That’s this week’s free Hype template.
Photics means “the science of light”, particularly in areas of water just below the surface. The “photic zone” is where photosynthesis can occur. Therefore, if this website had a mascot, a fish would be appropriate. Perhaps one day this site will have a logo again and maybe even a mascot. But one thing is almost a certainty. There’s a fish in the printed edition of A Book About Hype. That’s what this week’s free Hype template is about — using Hype to easily animate a fish.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🥳
While there is some debate as to the official start of the decade, here at Photics.com the event is celebrated today. If for no other reason, now there’s a normal nickname for the decade — the 20s or the 2020s. Woo hoo! In looking for a significant way to celebrate, a new app was launched — Apparatuses. This is the iOS counterpart of the macOS App Widgets. The plan is to work on these apps for many years to come. Officially launching Apparatuses, at the start of a new decade, is a nice way to commemorate the occasion.
