Gadget Man – Video Podcasts, Vlogcasts or just Vlogs from the past 3 weeks

I’ve been very lax in uploading the last three Podcast episodes which feature me chatting to James Hazell on BBC Radio Suffolk. I will upload these as audio episodes to keep the Podcast in order.

During this time, I have been experimenting by recording the interviews on video and in some cases, adding additional links within the videos.

This is incredibly time-consuming as the audio from James is lost if using the sound from the cameras and is lower quality. Thus in some cases, I have used a mix of both the BBC stream and camera and when I’m recording at home, I can also use a recording from a Blue Snowball Microphone.

For those interested, I’m using a Sony Xperia 1 stabilised by a DJI Osmo 3 Mobile. In the case of the third video, I also recorded the interview on a second static camera using a Sony Xperia XZ Premium.

The first two videos are 1080p using the Xperia 1 front-facing camera and the third uses both phones rear-facing cameras and thus is rendered in 4k.

I hope the video recording add value to the interviews, I would be very interested to hear your views?

 

The Gadget Man Episode 87 – Self Driving Cars / Driverless Cars / Autonomous Vehicles

Self Driving Cars are never far from the news, and last week whilst taking a few days away in sunny West Sussex, I spoke to Mark about what the future holds for Self Driving Cars and Truck Platooning.

Tune in to the audio stream to find out what we had to say on the matter, and whether I think you would will have ‘had it’ if a fuse blows in your autonomous vehicle.

Below is a also a video where Google talk about their dreams of driverless cars and truck platooning technology.
