Mix Up Your Reality
Ohhhh it’s getting exciting! This presentation by Robert Scoble shows the current developments in Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. The image below shows him watching a game with multiple screens surrounding him with game scores, player details and statistics.
Knowing I’m often using 2 or more screens or more than one tab on my computer, it’s wonderful to see this technology nearly here to make life easier (and of course, more complex).
A company I’ve enjoyed following for a while now is 8i. As you know, I encourage people to share their unique individuality online as it’s the most sustainable personal online strategy. Combine this with the incredibly true-to-life holograms that 8i are building and we’re on our way into a new and fascinating dimension of the world wide web.
These images on the right are from 8i’s Buzz Aldrin hologram who takes viewers on a journey to Mars.
It’s a great example too of the educational power of VR. Go 8i!

Great online presence:
- Scroll down the Unlockd careers lovely webpage to “VIEW ALL AVAILABLE POSITIONS” and it links across to LinkedIn where the search of their organisation appears. Rather than listing job details on their website this is a great way to have data in one location / quicker maintenance.
- Harriet’s engaging LinkedIn summary.
- Sometimes it’s the little things that lift you up. I recently updated my Instagram bio to:Live a bit more ???? It makes me smile. Hope your bios give you energy too.
- The extended list is here and here.
