This year at The Gadget Show Live there were a lot of companies showing off their latest 3D products, almost all of which required you to wear glasses; only the Nintendo 3DS didn't.

Wouldn't have minded seeing some 3D TVs that dont need you to wear rechargable glasses. The other area that seemed to get some attention was mind controlled software to do various things, which seems to be just the begining in this area!

While walking round the Hall of Fame there were quite a few things I remember playing/using as a kid, me and a friend at school were some of the first pupils to use the BBC Micro/Master with LaserDisc player at our school.

 

 

 

The first computer with a graphical interface and not use text only interface, the Apple Macintosh, was on show still working 27 years later.

Another Apple the Apple II dating back from 1977 was also on display......

A couple of other things you might remember from the 70's/80's was the Binatone TV Master (An early type of games console) and a Speak & Spell (You could make them say some funny things).

 

We spent quite some time around the game section trying out some of the latest games in 3D, even managed to get on the leader board with a quick lap round Brands Hatch on Shift 2: Unleashed.

 

 

We even got to have our photo taken with Duke Nukem, got to play some Duke Nukem aswell, looking forward to Duke Nukem Forever in June.

One of the guys lay down (Richard) while we watched to see if the lady could levitate him..... actually he was having a back massage!

All in all, not as great as we were expecting but an entertaining day out, especially with the historical items!
