iPad Pro

Sunday, 25th November 2018

I’ve been really loving working on my 10.5-inch iPad Pro since I got it around a year ago. Recently the newer, fancier 11-inch pro came out and as much as I lust after the new design I’ve decided not to upgrade this time around. The main reason’s the hardware side of iPads seem so vastly […]

Running lessons​

Monday, 12th November 2018

Over the past few years, I’ve had an on and off relationship with running. I’m not sure I’d go as far as saying “I’m a runner”, but I have run a few half marathons and had periods of time where I’d run at least 5 km a day. Over this time I’ve learnt a few […]

Oh yeah!

Saturday, 29th September 2018

Hey, so in case you haven’t heard already the Oculus Quest is a thing. It’s been a long time coming but we finally have proper PC free VR. I’m not going to go into any real detail about it other than to say I’m super excited to get my hands on one of these things […]

Making a podcast

Wednesday, 4th July 2018

News flash, I’m working on a podcast. Maybe even more than one. I’ve always loved podcasts and have been listening to them for as long as I can remember. I’ve been kicking around the idea of creating my own show for years, so when a friend of mine suggested we do one together, I was […]

Keynote countdown timer ⏲

Monday, 28th May 2018

I made a thing! I was helping a friend with a Keynote presentation deck. One of the tricker parts was that it needed an automatic 30 min on-screen timer to tick down. I’m something of a Keynote wizard, but I hadn’t made a timer before, but I happened upon this great tutorial on how to […]

Github Learning Lab🔬

Tuesday, 15th May 2018

I’ve been using GitHub for a while now as part of my spelunking into the world of VR and Mobile development. I think it’s fair to say it’s done a great job of protecting me from the inevitable mistakes of learning something new. Having said that, it does take a while to get your head […]

How to: Setup CocoaPods in Xcode

Sunday, 6th May 2018

Hey, guess what? I’m learning iOS development and have been for months! Thought I might increase my rate of publishing to my blog if I did what I did for my VR course and posted study related stuff here. So to that end… Here’s a simple step by step guide for adding CocoaPods to your iOS […]

Time to go VR?

Saturday, 5th May 2018

Well the Oculus Go is out. I’ll likely be picking one up later this year just to give it a go (see what I did there), but being a 3DOF system it isn’t the VR system I’ve been waiting for. Having said that, the Go looks like an important step forward for VR and even […]

Moving host

Monday, 9th April 2018

Hey team, I’m moving this site to a new host and I’m yet to polish things up. Forgive me if things are a little rough around the edges at the moment.

Udacity VR Nano degree retrospective ⏳

Wednesday, 13th December 2017

When I started my Udacity VR Nano degree I knew I was in for a challenge. Now that I’ve successfully completed my final assignment I thought I’d share some lessons learnt. So in no particular order: Use version control. Thankfully I started doing this very early on. I had heard of the benefits and for […]
