Had a shot at light painting tonight thanks to the images from Adrian Greig (thanks). Also had a play around with the custom white balance which worked out well. Still more practice required but have got the bug.

Yeah it is something I'd like to try but anything with flames is always a concern for me :).

This guy's youtube clip is good to learn what to do. I used his trick for the focusing for the light painting too.

Found this today - could be a solution for connecting HDMI AppleTV's to data projectors and IWB's with VGA input only to allow AirPlay with iPad2's. Needs further investigation.

I want to grab one and start playing with it. Have you found any decent places to get the HD Fury III from?

Given a few health scares over the years - this year I have decided to join Movember and attempt to grow a moustache for this great men health cause (even thought I am seriously follicly challenged).

If you have a few spare coin please feel free to drop by my Movember site http://mobro.co/itmadesimple and make a donation. I will be eternally grateful but so will the thousands of other men it may help in the future.

Thanks

Interesting observation in a class today with a 5 year old IWB - it looks very sad & under performing with little luminescence - will these start to hold things back. What is the replenishment plan for these 'amazing technological agents of change'?

It surprises me how many teachers I come across who only use their classroom's IWB as a projector because the calibration no longer works. In most cases these boards need servicing or replacement but, since the "we've got IWBs" box has been ticked, it's not always seen as a priority.

Just invested in this great simple idea on Kickstarter called Balloon Mapping Kits. Hope to find others in Australia and around the world using this with students and personally. Should be great fun with my kids - looking forward to getting started.

Jump on and have a look - invest as well to help set this great idea up.

Interesting to see in the last week that Google has removed the "+" or AND operator from the search tools when using google search. Apparently this was causing confusion with Google+. A sad turn of events as I believe learning about these operators is an important skill, means I need to change my search strategies and the information I provide to others. A little disappointed about this, you can read more here at Wired http://goo.gl/IDUfd or here at Pandia http://goo.gl/GNofD

Great real life portal video - this game is seriously good and the video does it justice. I want one of those guns.
