I think the Oculus Rift VR headset has really made big improvements in the VR space. One of the key things it has solved is motion blur which caused discomfort for users previously. They have a developers SDK and kit which I am tempted to run some tests with. I see some interesting applications for interactive storytelling and also training specific skills.

I am quite interested to see the progression of drones and how this will impact the logistics business in the future. The is a very nice implementation called the Pocket Drone which is powerful enough to carry a GoPro. Its on Kickstarter here:
With all the wearables showing up at CES this wear I found this tiny Arduino board called SquareWear which will enable you to create some interesting experiments. It has some built in sensors like temperature and light.
A very interesting presentation from Leah Buechley from MIT on paper based electronics using conductive ink. I believe this could be used in future packaging for smart notifications when products are running low.
I like this Kidle application called KindleGraph which allows authors to personally inscribe readers digital books on request. I found about about it from Brad Feld’s blog as he was constantly being asked to sign kindles!
Im wondering if anyone is interested in pulling together a team (or teams) for AngelHackLondon on the 10th and 11th of November. No big idea yet so I was thinking on they day we could just pick a problem to solve from the Internet Wishlist and try to solve it within the 24 hours. Any takers or other suggestions?
