Fast Forward – 3D Technology Investigated

The latest episode of Fast Forward, my future technology show on O2 Guru TV, is out now and this one is a bit special: a 3D special in fact.

With the BBC announcing only last week that it is pulling the plug on its 3D programming citing a ‘hassly’ viewing experience, I embark on a journey to investigate if today’s 3D tech is more than just expensive televisions and embarrassing glasses.

In the show I get creative in the world’s largest 3D printer store, go hands on with the world’s first 2D/3D dual-dimension interchangeable compact camera lens from Samsung, take a look at an innovative 3D pen and visit the world’s leading lenticular and 3D artist Jeff Robb.

Think 3D tech is tired and underwhelming? Watch this and then let me if you still think so.

Fast Forward, the Future Technology Show

At the Gadget Show Live this week I recorded the first show for my new O2 Guru TV series. Called Fast Forward, it’s all about future trends and technology.

The Gadget Show Live at the NEC in Birmingham is the UK’s largest consumer technology expo and the ideal location for the first episode with lots of terrific tech to get our hands on.

In the first show we feature the NAO Robot from Alderbaran Robotics, the terrific Goodnight Lamp, an 84″ Sony Ultra HD 4K TV and, a favourite of mine, the BubbleScope.

At the Gadget Show Live Christmas 2012 I showed CNN’s Erin McLaughlin around some the coolest gadget gifts for this holiday season. Here’s what we found:

One of the items that featured in this report and also in my World’s Coolest Camera show at The HUB Theatre is the BubbleScope. I’m a particular fan of the immersive and interactive 360 degree video, a cool way to capture a moment.

Here’s an example of an of a ‘bubble’ in action – at first it looks like any other web video, until you realise you can drag to change your camera angle:

Video Review of the Parrot AR.Drone

In November 2010 the team at the NFTS asked if I would review Parrot’s ground-breaking new boys’ toy, the AR.Drone, for their ‘live at five’ magazine show, The Loft. Never one to shirk a tech challenge, I accepted.

Armed with nothing more than my trusty iPad, here’s how I got on.
