Friday Funny: Inside The Mind Of A Master Procrastinator

David Meego - Click for blog homepageMy eldest son is responsible for many things, but excels at the Art of Procrastination.

He once asked my wife, “Do you want to practice your procrastination skills?“. She replied “Sorry, I don’t have time now.“. To which my son said, “It’s OK, we can do it tomorrow.“.

He recently found this video of a TED Talk by Tim Urban, which explains everything….

Check out the video below:

Hololens Holoportation: Virtual 3D Teleportation in Real-time

David Meego - Click for blog homepageWhile we are highlighting videos of really cool technology from Microsoft, a video on Hololens Holoportation was recently published and it also shows amazing possibilities.

Microsoft Research have taken the three dimensional camera technology to capture people and objects in an environment and combined this with the Augmented Reality ability of the Microsoft Hololens to display the captured virtual people and objects in your field of view at a remote location.

This concept looks very much like the communications holograms we have seen in the Star Wars movies… but now for real and not blue monochrome and fuzzy.

Microsoft Cognitive Services: Introducing the Seeing AI app

David Meego - Click for blog homepageLast week, to coincide with the Build 2016 developer conference, Microsoft’s YouTube channel released a new video demonstrating the Microsoft Cognitive Services APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) being used to create a Seeing AI (Artificial Intelligence) app.

This is a great example of why I love working in the technology and computer industry. To see technology being used to make people’s lives better and easier is what gives me hope for a future where computers improve our lives rather than making us work harder and be more stressed.

Check out the video below, also included is the audio descriptive version:

17th Century Shipbuilding and Your Failed Software Project

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThe Vasa was a Swedish warship built between 1626 and 1628. The ship foundered and sank after sailing about 1,300 metres (1,400 yards) into her maiden voyage on 10th August 1628.

There are a number of lessons that can be learnt from the design, building and testing phases of the ship building process that could be applied to today’s software development world.

This is the topic of Pete Cheslock’s lightning talk at Monitorama PDX 2014:

For more information on the ship and its history go to Vasa Museum or Wikipedia.
