dorkbot anglia is a regular evening of talks and conversations with "people doing strange things with electricity" in the East Anglian area. We are delighted to announce our sixteenth meeting to be held on Thursday 6th November as the guests of CSV Media, Ipswich. Free entry.

Cad Taylor of CSV Media and David Chatting of the Curiosity Collective will introduce:

  • Joe Rutland will be talking about the inspiration behind and technical implementation of Broadsview, a project which aims to do for the Norfolk Broads what Google did for the roads. Panoramic image of all of the Broads navigable waterways are captured every 10 meters, using human power alone. [BBC]
  • Dan Sloane will describe some recent work including the Race Bolt experience at the Commonwealth Games where visitors were invited to race a virtual life-sized Usain Bolt along a giant 40 metre screen.
  • Plus, "OpenDorks" (short ad-hoc slots for anyone to talk about their work).
