I Begin to trial DejaView!17th July 2012
Today I got my own DejaView device to start to wear, play with, improve (and fix the bugs)! While we've had working devices and a working system for many months now, up until now any devices that we have had have been used by the rest of the research team and our clinicial collaborators in London.
Two photos from DejaView: being interviewed, and caught and recognised shaving in the mirror!
Some of the photos from my first two days of wearing DejaView can be seen in the image:
The top photo was captured while myself and Paul Lewis were interviewed and filmed by a team from Sweden making a documentary about lifelogging (the documentary should appear later in the year!).
The bottom photo was captured while I was getting ready for work in the morning, where the reflection of me shaving in the mirror was captured by DejaView (which proceeded to recognise me and announce that I was looking at myself!)

A Photo of DejaView, from DejaView3rd April 2012
Alex's presentation on DejaView at the SenseCam Symposium 2012 in Oxford saw a milestone for us - the first time that the DejaView device (alongside the entire system, including the mobile phone and web server) has captured a DejaView presentation!
The photo on the left shows this seemingly trivial event - the first slide from Alex's presentation (Alex is just about visible on the left hand side of the photo)!
Energy Harvesting Network's Data Repository Launched13th February 2012
The Energy Harvesting Network, coordinated by myself and Prof Steve Beeby at the University of Southampton, have launched the Network's 'Data Repository' - an online catalogue for researchers worldwide to share data on ambient energy availability - for example acceleration levels, solar irradience, or wind speeds. It is hoped that, by using a common dataset, this will encourage the comparitive evaluation of energy harvesters and fuel advances in the field.
Natuarlly, the repository will only ... [more]
