As i have mentioned before i managed to get an invite to the official opening of the new Microsoft Research building in Cambridge.
O my…i want to work there!
Gadgeteer is definitely alive and kicking at MS and there are some cool new features just around the corner. During the launch i got to meet some very cool people including Steven Johnson from Southhampton Uni who is doing the Bee hackathon this coming weekend, Paul Foster from MS who had a couple of really neat ROV’s.
There were some very cool displays with Kinects and wrist sensors…
After the champagne and finger food had run out i when up to the 4 floor and talked Gadgeteer with the team, Steve Hodges, James Scott, Nicolas Villar, Jan Kucera and a couple of others. Very interesting conversation to say the least
All in all a wick day out.
And i get free cake and a nice glass paper weight
To say i have a big smile on my face is a mild understatement…
