Art Rules 2014 at Hazelhurst

Hot on the trail of the artist know as NOT ( 8not8 ) had to see the Glazed and Confused group exhibition at Hazelhurst Gallery. Upon arrival, I got quite taken by the concurrent Art Rules exhibition, showing some stunning student work, prepared for their HSC.

Google Cardboard

When asked, "Hey Bob, what's that?" I say to them "It's a high tech cardboard box". Although Google Cardboard was released a while ago, I forgot all about it until it blipped on my radar recently and I got a basic kit on ebay for $3.

The Cardboard App is the obvious choice, but there is more fun experiments, just google it.

Kogan Agora 4G

Initially I got one of these for myself. It represented and proved awesome value.

Then I tried to sell bb onto it, but it was too boring and black. Then I sold my mother onto it to replace her aging galaxy note 1. Then the spec upgrade came out, in white, and I sold bb onto it. This android is a rebellion against flagships.

The story is junk, and applies to thousands of people I'm sure, but this is mine.

BTW, this phone replaces my Nexus 4, which suffered the misfortune of having had been dropped and cracking the screen.
