Marshall McLuhan debates his ideas on Australian TV in 1977

"In June 1977 Marshall McLuhan visited Australia and was a guest on Monday Conference, a popular live ABC television show hosted by Robert Moore. McLuhan debated his ideas with Moore and took questions from a feisty studio audience made up of members of the media and advertising industry, including TV boss Bruce Gyngell (see Part One at 14 mins), and young, funky Derryn Hinch (see Part Two from 3 mins).

McLuhan had been brought to Australia to address a broadcasting conference organised by Sydney radio station 2SM, and the Monday Conference was broadcast from the ballroom of the Sydney Hilton Hotel.

Many in the audience clearly admired McLuhan who has well into his prime and at ease with the live television situation. The discussion covered an eclectic range of topics, from television, privacy and Richard Nixon to holograms, transcendental meditation, Jane Austen, Euclidean geometry, denim jeans and nude streaking.

Towards the end of the program the always unpredictable McLuhan can be heard just off–mic, saying to Moore, 'I'm terribly sorry, but I'm going to have to sneak off and have a pee!'."

Rob Bryanton: Imagining the 10th Dimension

"Since the extra dimensions beyond spacetime that physicists talk about are all spatial dimensions (or 'space–like' as some prefer to say), thinking about how the simplest spatial dimensions relate one to another gives us tools for imagining the more complex ones. The key to remember with all this is that each additional spatial dimension is at 'right angles' to the one before: so each new dimension allows an observer to see 'around the corner' in a way that was unattainable from the previous dimension. This time, let's work through the dimensions with that idea in mind."

Light Blue Optics unveils Light Touch: a 10-inch touchscreen pico projector based on lasers

"They promised us a device in 2010 and sure enough, Light Blue Optics just announced Light Touch. As the name implies, LBO's product is a laser projector that turns any flat surface into an auto–focused and image–adjusted 10–inch touchscreen with WVGA resolution thanks to its laser– (not LED) based pico projection engine dubbed HLP (holographic laser projection) and infrared touch–sensing system. Light Touch runs Adobe Flash Lite 3.1 and includes WiFi and Bluetooth radios, 2GB of on–board storage (with microSD slot for up to 32GB more), and a battery capable of about 2–hours worth of runtime."

(Thomas Ricker, 5 January 2010, Engadget)

Gorillaz: virtual band perform 3D hologram concert

"It must be tough being a cartoon band. For one thing, you don't exist. At a time when concert tickets are what really makes bands profits due to easy online music file sharing, to not exist on stage is a death wish.

I get the feeling that one of the world's first and largest cartoon bands, the Gorillaz, understands their predicament. On one hand, if the artists behind the Gorillaz were to perform live, it would completely undo the novelty of being a cartoon band with made–up personalities. For example, the guitarist is supposedly a ten year old Japanese girl who showed up mysteriously in a Fed–Ex box at the band's doorstep. If the fans were told they were going to see the Gorillaz and instead see Miho Hatori (the real guitarist), they would surely be disappointed to find a more normal–looking band member. On the other hand, not touring would likely mean the end of the band.

Ingeniously, the Gorillaz have come up with a solution. They will tour. Instead of physically being on stage, they will instead be represented by 3D holograms."
