My 8″ has recently gone to a very good home, so I can now concentrate on using the 4.5″. This has distinct advantages – my garden table is shaded from the surrounding light (but still has a good area of visible sky), and it can be carried with one hand, so if I want to throw it in the car and go somewhere else, it is easy.

I’ve just finished a 360° project shot at the Hereward Wargames Show. It’s an extensive interactive walkthrough of the show. It took a while for me to do it, as I needed to learn how the framing software – HoloBuilder – worked. There were a…

As some of you will know, I am overweight. As such, I have fat wrists. Actually, they don’t seem that big, in proportion to my arms, but they are big enough to cause the eternal watchstrap problem. When I was using my Fitbit Flex, it…

A friend recently commented that when I tell them about shows I am watching, they sound good, but then they forget which show it was. So I am going to compile a list of what I have enjoyed. I’ll probably be adding to this, as I encounter new shows.

Two new games that I’ve recently bought, in my efforts to get more good short games into my collection.

A combination of changes at YouTube and Ricoh’s new video driver (UVC Blender) now means that it is straightforward to stream 360° video live. I’ve experimented a little with it, and am not yet sure if it is good enough for what I want to…
