Jekyll And Hyde Augmented Reality Book

October 26, 2010

An awesome augmented reality book to really bring the story to life. I love the way they’ve used the lamp as a camera:


Pulse News Mini

August 3, 2010

I’ve just downloaded this great blog feed app on my iPhone called Pulse. It’s essentially a nicely designed rss & blog reader that you can customise to view feeds on your iPhone/iPad quickly and easily. Very simple but just what I’ve been after. Great stuff.

More Data Visualization

This time from Grid/plane. Beautiful conceptual pieces for Google monitoring social media buzz:

An Idiots Guide to Data Visualization

July 7, 2010

I may qualify as an idiot in this field but I found this article about data visualization absolutely fascinating. I saw Jer Thorp at flash on the beach last year and his work is amazing (and the results are beautiful). Well worth a read if you’ve got a spare 10 mins – a good intro to the subject.

History Pin

June 30, 2010

I just stumbled upon this the other day. A great way to collaborate all sorts of old photos and stories from various locations across the globe using the google maps api.

OK – perhaps it is just a glorified iPhone but I challenge you to pick one up and not want to slip it into your (giant) pocket.

Decode @ V&A

February 15, 2010

My valentines treat was a trip to the excellent decode exhibition at the V&A. If you’ve not been it’s definitely worth checking out (it’s on until april). For once I was able to walk around an exhibit and know more about it than the oldies who keep stopping in front of me.

These were some highlights:

Rock n’ Roll Swatch Chart

February 10, 2010

At the end of last year I put together various colour swatches of some of my favourite ablum covers. Not really knowing what to do with them, I’ve decided to make them into a set of limited prints. Here’s a little preview of them. I’ve hidden the names (bar the first two) but the first 16 people to guess a swatch will win a free print (uk post only – sorry). Good luck:
