Presentation: Augmented Reality – The Next Level:
Augmented reality is one of the most discussed technologies of the past few years. As the tech moves from desktop to mobile device, your street level experience can be augmented with location aware extras (now in 3D!). Hear how it works and how it'll evolve from the pioneers in mobile augmented reality.

Presentation: BERG - Where Digital Technology Meets the Physical World
Design consultancy BERG works with companies "to research and develop their technologies and strategy, primarily by finding opportunities in networks and physical things." In other words, they are doing amazing things where design meets technology, particularly in the areas of mobile and physical computing. Their projects range from Here and There, a horizonless, 3D map of New York and Olinda, a socially networked radio, to, most recently, a neat RFID-enabled Rube Goldberg machine, created with interactive designer Timo Arnall. Matt Jones and Matt Webb will showcase some of their amazing work and get to the crux of the creativity+technology question.
Matt Jones, Director, Design, BERG
