Multimedia shedding a new light!

Multimedia gives a new take on storytelling for blogs!

Multimedia is such a great and powerful way to showcase various things happening around the world. The good thing about multimedia, is that is very lucrative and has a  plethora of platforms that can be used. One of those plat forms are videos; some of which can be used to showcase the new things that are going on the world today.

One of the things that is constantly changing is the tech world . All of the new technological advancements that are happening at such a rapid pace , should be greatly showcased; so the article called ” The Robot Revolution: The New Age of Manufacturing – Moving Upstream” did. 


This video initially grabs my attention by first , talking about topics that are new and constantly changing. The visuals that they have behind it showcasing what is actually going on in the robotic realm are amazing. I believe that actually narrators of the video give a good insight as to how this situation is prevalent to day, how it benefits people, and how it benefits the use of mankind. The video gives us relevance, location, and who is all involved.

What if I told you that there was something out there that can allow you to see all types of data from the reach of your finger tips? I am talking about ” Ushahidi” – in Swahili means ” Testimony” , is a software program that allows everyday people to interact and learn of various things happening within that areas such as potential threats or dangers.
