Gillmor Gang: Drunken Avatars

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Dan Farber, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — turned what seemed like a slow news week into a tour of emergent hardware and big tech ideas. A Down-Under visitor to Robert Scoble’s studio showed us how he used a 3D printer to prototype a Steadicam-like handheld image stabilizer.

Closer to home, we handicapped Elon Musk’s HyperLoop project, the possibility of using wearable computers to detect an interest in donuts from eye movements, and the timing of the end of Apple’s year-long drought of new product. As the new school year approaches, even a slow week turns out to be bursting with promise.
