Happening soon! Come join us. I’ll probably talk about lasers but who knows, I have a wide range 😅
There's still time to book onto this evening's #LovetoPlay2021 conversation with digital artist @seb_ly who will be discussing lasers, lights and large scale installations (including #LightNightLeeds 2020!)
I guess in a sparsely populated country, extreme milage is fairly common. Do people really spend 4 hours a day diving, though, without taking any breaks?
Is it just my perception, or is Australia especially anti-electric vehicle? Check out the trolls in the comment section of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk-LnUYEXuM more than one of them claim to be from Australia....
It's a bit shallow and simplified, but it is comprehendible to a wide audience - which is quite important for this issue as it seems like something that more people need to know about!
Interesting start to the concerning world of 'microwork' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-56414491
I spent quite a lot of time advocating the use of segments for media over the last few years. A lot of the detractors would say "but nobody uses chapters" - which I always thought was a rather narrow minded idea of what a segment can be. YouTube got it (mostly) right, they've got simple tools to make chapters in videos with timestampsp in the description. But that's just the start... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMW3TFKYFtQ
This might be the VR equivilent of "you must be at least *this* tall to ride" https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198306878258/recommended/1292040/
Incidentally, I don't - my hands are extremely average. Obviously I'm not especially protective of this information, but I'm curious to know whether that would/could happen
Question: if the Oculus hand tracking feature records "estimated hand size", and "We use the information we have to deliver our Products, including to personalise features and content" - does that mean if I have small hands I'll start getting adverts for specialised hand jewelry for people with small hands?

tl;dr: a basic, repairable piece of tech to perform a basic task proves to be generally better than a very clever but fragile one.
But yes, they do use bags! Oh no! But actually, if that extends the life of the motor (by acting as a filter), and is one less mechanism to fail (like the bin latch on my old Dyson) then is that really worse? It might be a consumable product, but so are binbags and we seem to cope OK with those...
Energy efficiency is not an easy thing to calculate with a vacuum cleaner - as so much of the "efficiency" is down to how you use them. But I *can* tell you what's not
efficient - vacuuming half your house then having to put the thing on charge for an hour then finishing it off later!
