At the Russian Science-Technology Geek Picnic Festival

My Talk at Geek Picnic




Wow! I just returned from Russia and 10,000 people attended the Geek Picnic Festival! I enjoyed the workshops in makerspace, robotics and also wearable computing – they were great! I met wonderful people and many students interested in the future of science and technology – artificial life, AGI, uploading, brain systems, and more. It was a great experience!   Related PostsNew DV Work: The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Spec Title Sequence New DV Work: Typography – Ringo Starr’s MS Paint Art New DV Work: ANATOMY OF A MURDER – Title Sequence Recreation Digital Video Students Win Big at…

Wearable computers have been around for as long as computers have become small enough to be portable, but they haven’t become popular due to usability and form-factor issues. Google’s project aims to address both of these issues. Engadget has a great article and a pair of videos on Sergey Brin’s Project Glass demo from the Google I/O event. Link to this post!
