through his eyes only

Luke Wicker - winner
Meet Luke, winner of our AGM consumer cam competition. He has a head roughly the same size as a burger. Though there's no telling how big that burger is, and perspective can be a fickle mistress at the best of times, so we're still none the wiser how big his head actually is.

Consumer cam

We're confident it can accommodate our consumer cam though, and that's all that really matters. On Saturday 22nd May, Luke will wear this highly technical and rather fetching piece of kit to our 2010 AGM on his burger sized head, to record his experience of the day, as he sees it, by taking regular photos which will upload live to the web. See evidence of early testing here.

We're not really sure how it's all going to work to be honest, but we'll be darned if we're not going to find out.

More details to follow (once we've figured out how to switch it on...)

latest consumer cam update

Here's an update live(ish) from the RIG studio where our AGM consumer cam is being tinkered with and crafted at the minute.

This version is nice and secure but points up too much. L1120946
This version is about the right angle but a bit wobbly. L1120954

1. It'll definitely work OK.

Questions

Every year at our AGM we have an open questions & answers bit where people can ask Rich, Jon and Adam what they've always wanted to know. We did it in 2008 and we did it in 2009. As we can only fit in so many people at the AGM on the day, and to keep things fair, we let everyone who can't make it submit a questions to be read out on their behalf. We then shortlist the most common and pressing questions a week or so before and let our innocent family vote on which should be read out on the day. It's worked pretty well for the last two years so we're going to do the same again this year.

So if you fancy asking a question of your own just click here. Be it how's 2010 treating us, what are our plans for the future or where does Jon get his hair cut.

And we're so eager to get your questions this year that we've even made a special postcard that you can find on the side of our special AGM smoothie cartons. Look out for them in the shops, although this way has no need for scissors, kitchen towel, permanent marker pens or stamps.

an AGM consumer cam update

Consumercam

After a successful breakfast meeting with our tinkering friends over at the Really Interesting Group last week, we're pleased to report the construction of our AGM consumer cam is going great guns. Here's an update from Russell on the front line.

Phase One prototyping complete - helmet with iPhone attached is not too heavy for human-typical head/neck delivery infrastructure.

Phase Two prototyping complete - gaffer tape not sticky enough - moving to premium stickiness solution.

Phase Three prototyping underway - lots of clever stuff with code.

We'll check back in with another update soon, in the meantime if you'd like to apply to wear the mighty contraption on Saturday 22nd May (the day of our 2010 innocent AGM) just fill out this form.

On Saturday 22nd May 2010 we'll be having our third ever innocent AGM. And to make sure we're always making things a bit bigger and better, this year we are going to introduce a mighty consumer cam to the day (pictured above, probably not exactly what it will look like, but you get the picture).

The basic idea is to document the AGM day from an attendee's point of view rather than just our own perspective, as we've done the past two years. We'll be working with our friends at the Really Interesting Group to put this innovative new contraption together in real life. Here's their first technical drawing so we've still got quite a way to go on it yet. We think the process of making it will be quite interesting in itself though, so we'll be posting updates as we go of double sided sellotape and pritt stick experiments.
Skitched
All we need now is someone to wear it on the day (and an under study incase they're ill). If you fancy carrying the bleeding edge of innovation on your head for one day then just fill out this form. Thanks for your interest.
