@Pablo: Here is an interesting use of Augmented Reality at Casa Batlló, Gaudí's famous building in Barcelona...

OMG!!! That is incredible -- now imagine if you didn;t have to use your spmartphone or tablet to see this, but instead it was projected directly onto your retina -- the scary thing is that if someone else took your AR system over, you wouldn't know if what you were seeing was real or not.

I look forward to "seeing" you in the chat on Friday

Max, if you're interested in the whole Batlló experience look at this blog from Kim Davis on Future Cities:

I will do so, but not today I am afraid -- at the moment I am up to my armpits in alligarots fighting fires without a paddle (I never metaphor I didn't like) ... too much to do and not enough time to do it all (sad face)

@Max "I am up to my armpits in alligarots"

Alligarots? Might that be the French subspecies?

And perhaps most importantly, are they known to swim the Channel?

Some might say the French are a subspecies in their own right, in which case I'm not sure how we would define "Alligarots" LOL

@Max at the moment I am up to my armpits in alligarots

Alternatively, this was once expressed as "Up to my all in assigators."

Good one -- I'll remember (and use) that ... it reminds me of "A wunch of bankers" (I think either David Ashdon or Antedeluvian told me that one)

Hi Max, Back from sitting in a tin box on the escarpment of the Durasic Coastline (Dorset England).

I some times worry that Crusty has become an augmented reality?

Hi Max, Weather was good and the beer and cider very quaffable the resulting vision problems were not due to Augmented reality issues.

As long as I have done my house chores then I will be with you all on Friday.
