Google teaches kids to code with scenes from ‘Wonder Woman’

Google has an interest in teaching kids how to code. After all, they’re going to be the next generation of engineers and developers inventing and supporting Google’s products. Yesterday, the tech giant announced that they’d teamed with Wonder Woman to inspire teen girls to learn coding.

Made with Code, a Google initiative that encourages teen girls to pursue coding, has released a new Wonder Woman-based coding project. With this system, users can code three different scenes from the Wonder Woman film, which arrives in theaters today, utilizing introductory programming techniques.

Using drag and drop blocks of code that comprise actions, objects and variables, those new to coding can see how the different aspects of code fit together to create a finished product. Young coders can use these code blocks to help Wonder Woman overcome obstacles in her path and reach her goals. It’s not the first time Made With Code has partnered with a new film to teach girls to code; it did so previously with Pixar’s Inside Out.

Google is also releasing an updated version of DC Legends, a game available in the Google Play store, with exclusive movie content and special events inspired by the Wonder Woman film. Additionally, over 100 teen girls were treated to an advance screening of the film as a collaboration between Google Play, Made with Code and Warner Brothers. Through these initiatives, Google’s goal is to help young women realize that coding can help them empower Wonder Woman — and themselves.

If you've ever watched a YouTube video and wished that you could be part of it, there's a new augmented reality app that might be able to help.

It's called Spilly, and it takes popular videos of celebrities, YouTube stars, and other famous clips, then allows users to mash them up with Snapchat-like AR effects and even their own faces.

The app features a seemingly endless feed of video clips sourced from YouTube. For each clip, there's a carousel of special effects you can add to make the video your own.

You could change what Golden State Warriors Star Kevin Durant is wearing, for example, or shower a Miley Cyrus video with virtual confetti or flowers. Or make it rain, or add a spotlight, or any combination of the above. The clips loop so you can keep adding or subtracting effects until you get something you like. Read more...
