So this happened on my #flight back from #Seattle to #SanFrancisco with #Delta, heading into the #sunset in between two layers of #clouds. Taken on my #Android Nexus 5X #smartphone. The world we live in is #beautiful don't you think?

So, #Bellus3D face capture at #CES2017 was pretty awesome. Runs on high end #Android smart phones along with a special device for proper lighting, and in under 30 seconds you have a model of your face you can use however you wish. Check the GIF below and learn more at

Really nice write up on the transition to the era of machine intelligence / prediction and how it compares to previous transitions we have made in history. Very thought provoking.
Prediction is about to get way cheaper.

+Matt Kennett​ - Thus Contributionism. We absolutely cannot monetize space. It will severely impede becoming a truly space faring society.

Wow, this is really awesome. A tiny single cylinder engine made from paper :-) Sounds surprisingly good for such size! Watch the video.

#HoloLamp uses face recognition to determine the correct viewing angle to give the illusion of a 3d form!
Augmented Reality product uses projection to provide 3D perspective on flat surface using facial recognition to calculate viewing angles.

These super #innovative headlights by #Audi are amazing, but not allowed in the US... Not sure why... TLDR: They use lasers, frickin' lasers and with that they can smartly highlight pedestrians to make them more visible, dim light on oncoming cars as not to blind them, whilst still illuminating your road, and even project the width of your car / messages so you know if you can fit in a tight spot or warn others of your presence. I gotta see these in real life! Anyone tried?

About Me

Web Engineer at Google. In a nutshell: I am a hybrid Developer / Designer / Programmer, Technical Consultant and Analyst, with a creative twist based in the UK. Also a keen HDR photographer in my spare time.

I am responsible for developing innovative technical solutions at Google utilising the latest web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, Java, JavaScript, and Google Cloud (AppEngine, Compute Engine, Cloud SQL, Cloud Storage).

In short, we make the impossible happen, for ideas that have never been attempted before.

Also: Mentor to high-tech startups at Google Campus

Advising, and helping digital startups in London's very own silicon roundabout on a variety of subject areas such as web programming, web security, design, user experience, usability, digital marketing, and advertising to name but a few.

"Let's fill this town with startups".


My background is based in Computer Science. It was here I discovered I fitted in to a rare breed of “hybrid developers” who equally enjoy being both creative and technical all at the same time.

Pages I have founded

I am the founder of +HDR Photographers here on G+ - a collection of inspirational photos by people from all walks of life I have found on my travels around the web. I want to help up and coming photographers gain exposure for their great work and to inspire others, and to share knowledge. We have over 60,000 members and growing daily so do check us out here:
