Now that is a range extender and a half for your #WiFi... #DefCon   #ProxyHam  Apparently will be sold as a DIY kit you put together. Could be a fun project to try.

So this machine at the #RoyalSociety #science exhibition allows you to measure the pull of gravity using atoms suspended in a vacuum. It is so sensitive it can detect the extra gravitational pull of a rock slightly larger than your hand in the earth below it, or the flip side of that - a hole beneath the ground if less gravity pull. Amazing cutting edge research in seeing tonight!

Woo! Got my #minecon exhibition lanyard for later today! Helping +John Cullen promote his new indie game #Loop , a tranquil puzzle game. Should be exciting. #Microsoft will also be demoing their #hololens hopefully! You can find his game here which just got accepted on STEAM! http://store.steampowered.com/app/370150/

As promised, here is a better demo of the mindblowing holographic watches (not real!) by #TruLifeOptics  at the Royal Society Scientific research exhibition in London. Really impressive stuff - these watches do not actually exist, yet they look so real as you move around them! Check out the larger and longer video here: https://youtu.be/zuaaeB-cwHM

Currently at the #RoyalSociety summer #science exhibition, and some of the demos are mind blowing! Check out this image below of some watches, this is in fact a very sophisticated hologram which is recreating the items using lasers by emulating the interference patterns produced by the original objects. They look so real! Really impressive stuff. #TruLifeOptics UPDATE: Just uploaded a higher quality video:  https://youtu.be/zuaaeB-cwHM

About Me

Innovation Services Web Solutions Engineer at Google for the EMEA region. 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, ActionScript and Adobe Flash.

A genuine polish experience. A bit off the beaten track, but the food was genuine. Really traditional Polish - confirmed by my Polish friend who was with me, and having travelled to Gdansk myself it was authentic. Tasty, filling, and would come back for more. Certainly try the cabbage filled with minced meat and rice in creamy mushroom sauce. Very nice! Cash only, so take money before visiting.

Wonderful selection of beers, reminds me of my time in delirium in Belgium. Really recommend the Chimay Bleu, dark beer, smooth creamy taste. Great fries too work perfectly with beer. Will be back again soon!

Wow. Lovely venue and atmosphere, and most importantly unique and tasty cocktails. Came here to the bar with friend after work and had my mind blown by the Ice and Fire cocktail! Has lavender and a number of other rarely used ingredients which I won't spoil the surprise for. A bit pricer than nearby average, but worth the extra cost. Will be back.

Very similar experience to previous reviewer - can not fault service or quality of food. Was a little on the small side for me but the quality justified the price none the less. Wonderful attentive staff. Would come back. Has outside seating for sunny days!

Similar as others have already reviewed. Nice atmosphere, good food, but I have had better! Good for a social gathering though.

Great value cocktails in a busy little bar that is clearly popular with the locals. Two cocktails for ten pounds is great considering most central places charge 8 for one. Bottles of Prosecco for 15 also work out decent value. Would go back again for informal drinks with friends.
