Practical Action Stickers print run #2 is coming to an end, with the last few sets being posted out right now.
I’m working on a few tiny projects at the moment.
Stand Clear of Doors is a collection of signs and instructions.
Words on Pavements is a collection of messages found scribbled underfoot.
Both are ongoing projects.
Over summer 2014, I ran a small project in response to a pack of prompt cards created by Giles Turnbull. Write it on a Train is collection of 50 responses to 50 randomly-shuffled prompt cards, played out over 50 days.
In March, I’ll be on speaking in the True Mobile & Beyond track at QCon London 2014. It’s an exciting opportunity to take part, and I’m hugely looking forward to hearing and learning from the other speakers on the track: Halle Winkler; Mo Ramezanpoor; Jaimee Newberry; and Hannah Dee.
I’ve had a couple more talks / demos confirmed this year for the gesture-responsive book. I’ll be at iOSDevUK 3 in Aberystwyth, Wales in September, presenting the project with Mo Ramezanpoor. Mo will be talking in more detail about his work on the project to interpret 3D gesture data.
Then in November, I’ll be talking about combining Arduino and books at the Handheld Mini / Port80 event in Cardiff on the 27th. Tickets for this event are free.
Do come and say hi if you’re attending either event.
A few quick updates on show & tell events for the gesture-responsive storytelling book project:
In March I was invited to talk at The Electric Bookshop in Edinburgh, where I did the first public demo of Treasure Island, our little prototype of the book we’re making for The Library of Lost Books.
One weekend in the middle of February, we ran a hack session to make a first useable prototype of our book for the Library of Lost Books – a talking, gesture-responsive book.
Our aim was to put together the elements we’ve each been working on: story and audio; Lilypad Arduino; gesture detection; getting iPhone and Arduino talking to each other to share data – and to combine them in a physical book.
