The Byteside gang pulled out a corker of a final show for their second season. It's all about Augmented Reality, and unless you were either at Byteside and have seen this already, or you happen to be one of the panellists, chances are watching this video will make you smarter.

If you're in Sydney and fancy a few beers while watching me talk about stuff, you should definitely head over to the Hotel CBD tomorrow night. I'll be there with Byteside host and friend of Giz Seamus Byrne, Crikey's tech writer Stilgherrian and some mysterious genius from Google to talk about living your life online. It should be a lot of fun!
It's not enough you get that many two-letter acronyms / abbreviations into a headline. But then, 3D doesn't come along every day. Just now and then for each generation. This week on Byteside Tech it was all about 3D, and the panel bounced a lot of pros and cons around making for a solid discussion on whether this time it will be here for keeps.
Like the idea of 3D, but worried about the prospect of 'binocular dysphoria'? Tomorrow night Byteside is all about what's going on in the world of 3D. Screens, content, glasses or no, how it's changing the business, and what's going to be the hook that sells a thousand screens? You're welcome to join the fun live in Sydney!
The first episode of Byteside for 2010 was a great look into future trends for the technology industry, but the highlight of the evening for me was when Mark Pesce - one of the pioneers of virtual reality, co-inventor of VRML and regular judge on The New Inventors - told the audience: "For All Of You Who Are Planning To Buy A 3DTV: For God's Sake Don't..."
I received word this morning from the guys over at Byteside that their Xmas Spectacular - of which your truly will be a part of the panel - only has a handful of places left. If you want to spend next Tuesday night drinking Christmas Cheer (that's rhyming slang I just made up) while watching me and a handful of other tech and gaming journos talk Christmasy gadgets, then make sure you RSVP today.
I missed heading to last week's Byteside show thanks to a 4am start the next morning, but watching the tech show over the weekend was like a fantastic walk down gadget memory lane. iPods, the Internet, Bitorrent, mobile phones, UI software... it's amazing to look back and realise just how far we've come over the past decade. It's a long video, but well worth watching...
Tonight's the last night for this season of Byteside, the brain child of former Giz editor Seamus. If you're in Sydney tonight and fancy sharing a few beers with like-minded geeks, make sure you RSVP. Tonight's shows will be a retrospective look back at the past decade, and the highs and lows of both technology and games. I'll be there, so make sure you say G'day!
If you haven't yet managed to get down to experience the Byteside live show, time is running out - the final show is scheduled for November 24, although Ben and Shay are hosting a special Christmas show on December 8.
For those of you who haven't yet caught episode two of Byteside, last week's games show tackled the whole R18+ rating debate. What made the discussion really worth mentioning however was the inclusion on the panel of Paul Hunt, former Deputy Director of the OFLC. You know, the guys who actually ban games.
For those of you who missed the launch episode of Byteside Tech on Tuesday, here it is!
