La Tabla

My friend Chaim Gingold and his collaborator Luke Iannini work for the research group HARC.  They have developed a very cool projection based Augmented Reality system dubbed La TABLA

The system uses a camera and projector combination to create an interactive space that allows the manipulation of the computer with simple objects. Lots of potential applications – from games to creative tools and beyond.

Been helping out to develop portable solutions and field test them with kids. Really fun! Been fantastic working with Chaim and lab Executive Producer Virginia Macarthur on this. 

Next up is building my own at home…

“Sprinting”

Fun tweet by Jake Knapp of Google Ventures. He sent proof of his book “Sprint” to us at CircleUp and I put some of the techniques to work on a one of our current projects!

The book is great, full of insights, strategies and tactics for moving quickly on bringing innovation, consensus, and understanding to product design challenges.
