So, we're starting to real progress on the Interactive Newsprint project. Last week saw the team exhibit at London Design Festival; showing a couple of examples from the project as part of the Fieldguide 'collective'.

We showed an interactive Lancashire Evening Post that was equipped with embedded audio (via bluetooth headphones) and analytics capacity, and an 'interactive' exhibit of +Garry Cook's Outsiders project. Check out our homepage for a new and updated video on the project...

kinda hilarious with things freefloating in midair 'over' the screen. Guess it's not just a tablet but a holo-emitter (but if it could do that why not project the tablet itself! :))

Also love to think when smooshing a french girl you'll be holding a plastic in front of her face - i guess it also keeps out the bacteria.

But sure. Can't wait.

On Saturday, the first 'Interactive Newsprint' project workshops brought together designers, Prestonians and organisations from around the city to look at a brand new way of sharing news. Interactive Newsprint features UCLan, Surrey and Dundee universities, along with Cambridge-based outfit Novalia, and plans to investigate the potential of 'interactive paper' to create new and innovative ways of sharing news.

For example, the cutting edge tech allows paper to respond to human touch, play audio and potentially link out to the internet. It's pretty exciting stuff.

We're working on our website at the moment, and I'll share links as and when we have updates, but in the meantime - here's a report from local site Blog Preston on the event.

Reflections Portraits by Tom Hussey

Tom Hussey portrays old people looking at their younger reflection in the mirror. My fave is the first. I got a little teary. So beautiful and melancholic. tomhussey.com

I have to give Best Buy some credit. I never thought I'd be recommending an Ad on my Google + page, but this one is pretty cool.
