Home Movie: An American Folk Art

In 1974, as part of the Family Folklore Program of the Festival of American Folklife, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., put out a call for families to bring in their home movies and have portions of them copied for a documentary film. More than 100 families responded to the call, bringing in 16 mm and 8mm home movies, as well as photo albums. The result was the documentary, Home Movie: An American Folk Art by Ernst Star, then a student in the film department at Temple University, and Steve Zeitlin, a student in the Department of Folklore and Folklife at the University of Pennsylvania.

Real World Golf

Gametrak is a patented 3D motion tracking system, for Xbox and PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, which is able to track, to 1mm of accuracy, a position in 3D space - at up to 2000 miles per hour!

This allows the system to track not just the speed you hit the ball, but the angle of your club face, the height of your swing - in fact, everything you can do in real golf can be done in Real World Golf.

For example, you can open and close the club face to fade or draw the ball - curving it from left to right or vice versa. Coming under the ball will add backspin, useful for stopping the ball on the green.
