The guys and girls at LucidCam have figured out how to do a full 360 with their 180 degree camera by combining 3 devices into a custom 3D printed holder. I hope they throw some video online, should be interesting to see.

Personally I think 180 is enough and actually better. I noticed that full 360 files tend to be huge and play slow.

While the VR scene is slowly picking up space I reckon this little camera might just kickstart it into higher gear.

Please please please make this happen!
Google recently talked with some microchip makers about developing chips based on Google's own preferred designs, part of a push by the company to bring more uniformity to the fragmented universe of Android phones. That, Google hopes, would make its Android mobile operating system more ...

Lol, kid next door saw my son 's video on YouTube and now made his own. Not sure who was holding the camera but they seem unsteady on their feet.

Kid's a natural. On a side note, I like how his first instinct was to try and break it.

Google has changed the way their download site looks for factory images and now I'm not 100% sure which image to download.

For the Nexus 5 there are various builds but for the Nexus 6 I only see one and the build number does not match mine which is LMY48T or can I install MRA58K on mine?

If it's a Nexus, you can always update the second they release the images. Just sometimes it may not work quite as you expected it, depending on how carriers are going to tamper with it.

Story
Tagline
A multilingual technology consultant, born in The Netherlands, worked in London and now living in Japan.
Introduction
I keep procastinating what to write here so I thought I would write a few points on things I care about bullet points
  • technology, all of it, if it eats electricity chances are I like to play with it
  • Apple, the technology company, I also like IBM, SGI and some others but Apple is my main intrest
  • the 3 main abrahamic religions, judaism, christianity and islam. I think as they currently stand they are a dirty stain on humanity and if we are to progress upwards in our evolution as a species it needs to radically change or simply be removed
  • The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Japan, the countries I have called my home
  • humanism, you know, be good to your fellow human beings, for no other reason than it being the right thing to do, no gods with rewards or punishment required
  • fairness to all, we are all human beings and deserve to be treated humane, regardless of gender, race, age, appearance. As such I rejoice in victories of the suppressed, be it  females, Gay, Bi, Lesbian, Transgender or people of the various races
Background
Just a little history on myself. I was born in Utrecht, Holland way back in 1971, attended a school for the print industry where I encountered the first Macintoshes back in 1985, that pretty much changed my life as I was convinced at that point that computers were the way forward. Seeing that teachers did not agree I left school. Then while working for Apple Benelux I was told I was fired due to them outsourcing my job to the UK who then hired me back at almost 3 times my salary as they could not find qualified Dutch speakers on their little island, thats how I ended up in London where I worked first for Apple and then as IT Manager for several global design firms, ending in one of my best jobs ever with MR Systems, not because they paid well but because they really cared for their clients and are basically a bunch of swell guys, sadly it was not too last. My wife wanted to move back to Japan as she thought it would be a better place for the kids, now living here I have to agree.

Might elaborate on some points later, im not a big writer ;)
Bragging rights
At age 40 I decided to throw my 17 year career in technology down the drain to follow the love of my life to Japan and become a full time dad, living with in-laws I cant talk to ;)
