O2 Guru TV Fast Forward Future of Sport

Wearable Technology to Shape the Future of Sport

2013-12-29_18-39-05In the latest episode of Fast Forward I visit Fratton Park, home of Portsmouth Football Club, to see how technology is shaping the future of sport.

With head mounted displays such as Google Glass augmenting spectators’ viewing experiences off the field, and sportsmen and women on the field sporting connected shoes, belts and even gumshields, wearable technology is at the very heart of this sporting revolution.

Fast Forward from O2 Guru TV explores future technology and trends; in previous episodes I’ve been hands on with Oculus Rift for a Next Generation Gaming Special, visited the world’s largest 3D printer store for Future of 3D Special and visited the future at the Future Technology Zone at The Gadget Show Live.

Unboxing the Apple iPhone 5s

2013-09-20 - iPhone 5s Unboxing 2It’s that day again. You know, the one where otherwise sensible people go gadget crazy, queueing overnight and around the block to be the first to get their fingerprints on the new iPhone.

Love it or loath it, and Apple’s products seem increasingly to polarise opinion, the annual iPhone release is a big day in most technology journalists’s diaries, mine included.

Yesterday I recorded a quick interview for ITV’s Daybreak and then first thing on launch day today I went hands-on to present both an iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c unboxing video for O2.

There’s no denying that they’re both accomplished and stylish handsets; as an iPhone 5 owner I was surprised at just how taken I was with the coloured polycarbonate-backed iPhone 5c. On the iPhone 5s the Touch ID fingerprint tech worked very well for me, and I’m interested to see how app developers will exploit the M7 motion coprocessor at 64-bit A7 processor.

Pop over to O2 Guru TV to watch my iPhone 5c unboxing video.

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.

Hands on with Nokia Lumia 925 for O2 Guru TV

Earlier this week I got hands-on with Nokia’s new flagship smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 925, at the global launch event in London.

Aside from the all-new aluminium body the big stories with the Nokia Lumia 925 are the PureView camera’s insane low-light capabilities and the integrated Nokia Smart Camera software, both of which we had plenty of opportunities to try out at the event:

As you can see, it’s a cracking handset with a very interesting camera that I’d love to take on a holiday with me to try out in more detail.

I was delighted to be working once again with Pat Doyle, who produced the O2 Guru TV Fast Forward film from the Gadget Show Live.

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.

6 Degrees of Summer, Making of Film 4

David McClelland O2 Guru with Gaffer TapeThe next in the series O2 Guru TV films I’ve been hosting taking a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of ‘Six Degrees of Summer’ has just been released.

This unique project features 6 interlocking short films by BAFTA award winning directors and up-and-coming filmmakers. What’s more there is the opportunity for a rising star to pitch to have their film produced as part of the anthology.

But perhaps most intriguing of all is that all of the footage for the films is shot on smartphones such as the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S3 both which, coincidentally, I’ve been writing about recently in some features for CNET UK.

This film takes a crew’s eye view behind the cameras at Monkey’s Wedding, written and directed by O2 competition winner Nick Jesper.

O2 Guru TV Inspire – Six Degrees of Summer

More mobile movie-making madness! As well as penning some features for CNET UK on how to make movies with your mobile, I’m also presenting for O2 Guru TV on smartphone film-making.David McClelland on O2 Guru TV

This is the first of a series of behind-the-scenes films I’ll be introducing for O2 Guru TV all about Six Degrees of Summer, a film project sponsored by O2 which features a unique twist: the public get to pitch to make one of the six interleaving films.

As BAFTA award winner Tom Shankland demonstrates here with an iPhone 4S, it’s all about ingenuity and back-to-basics storytelling when shooting with a smartphone:

I can’t wait to see the how the final film turns out, and particularly how smartphone footage looks in the hands of a pro – watch this space for more.
