On Tuesday, January 26 Cisco Live and Networkers Virtual will host a full day of world-class training, keynote presentations, live executive chat session, and a virtual World of Solutions with live virtual staff. This is a great opportunity for you to participate in an exciting event without leaving your desk.
During this one-day live-virtual hybrid event taking place in parallel with Networkers at Cisco Live Barcelona you will hear compelling keynotes from two technology visionaries streamed live in the Cisco Live and Networkers Virtual Auditorium. Marthin De Beer, Senior Vice President, Emerging Technologies Group delivers the Cisco keynote. Bruce Thomas, Director of the Wearable Computer Laboratory, at the University of South Australia, will share his knowledge and vision of wearable computers, augmented reality and virtual reality. There will also be several live technical sessions for attendees to view, see below.
If there ever was a geek-utopia, it would no doubt look very similar to CES. Big booths, big announcements and even bigger TVs. CES 2010 in Las Vegas is being hailed as one of the better shows in the past few years, with all companies big and small releasing high-tech devices. Unfortunately I could not physically attend, but thanks to the thousands of bloggers and live video streams, I was able to experience much of it virtually.
If you ask most people what the overall theme was at CES this year, they would most likely say 3D. While 3D was the most talked about technology at the show, I would disagree that it was the overall theme. I feel convergence was the real star at CES. Internet connected TVs, new media center devices, video conference TVs, even Twitter on your TV. The living room just got more connected.
Here an interesting web interface for perusing video: We’re currently running an interesting overlay on the New York Times home page which shows some of the day’s main stories in video. To see it, click on this banner below on the US edition of the New York Times:
Cisco Live and Networkers Virtual will feature a live keynote on 26 Tuesday 2010 at 2:45pm CET featuring Professor Bruce Thomas, Director of the Wearable Computer Laboratory at the University of South Australia. His team of researchers and enthusiastic Phd students push the research and development boundaries of wearable computers, augmented reality and virtual reality.
Bruce joined the Wearable Computer Laboratory in 1998 and during his time there invented the first outdoor augmented reality game AR Quake, and that is just one example of some very cool projects the team at the Wearable Computer Laboratory have or are working on.
