Google join Augmented Reality race…

Interestingly Google have joined the race to bring commercial wearable computing to the masses. Project glass is a Google research project which is presumably aiming to use retinal projection technology to make a wearable head mounted display. This is not new tech, in 2010 Brother announced Air Scouter which projects an image onto the retina, in a less stylish looking way to the Google ones. Brother started manufacturing the Air Scouter in 2011. NEC also have some similar technology whichaimed to project real time translations of people’s speech as subtitles over the person.

Apple must also be looking at this technology, as it surely is a “must have” mobile tech of the future. This will be the first time that a computer can be said to be truly Personal, no one else will be able to see the screen.

October Events In Nottingham

It’s October, the students are back, and Nottingham’s Autumn events are well under way. Here are a selection:

This weekend it’s Nottingham’s legendary Goose Fair, now open on Sunday for the first time. There are over 500 attractions this year but it’s well worth a trip down for the mushy peas and mint sauce alone.

Next weekend sees the return of the Nottingham Robin Hood Beer Festival. Now settled at its new home, Nottingham Castle, just around the corner from the Gooii offices, it runs Thursday 14th to Sunday 17th Oct (stocks permitting) and promises around 700 guest ales and live music through the weekend.

Finally, running from the 22nd to 24th October we have the Hockley Hustle. Over 250 bands and artists will appear in 30 venues throughout the city over the weekend, and all money raised goes to support worthwhile causes in and around Nottingham.

V Festival

Well, I swore 2 years ago would be my last V, but oooops I did it again. Nothing overly inspiring on the main stages yet, hopefully some of the smaller tents will deliver as the lineup is finalised.
