16:04:12 From Rafael Nepô : Looking for my Headphones
16:12:29 From Rafael Nepô : Found it!
16:19:54 From Peter Wasilko : This tech looks really tempting:
16:20:27 From Fabien Benetou : @Peter worked with both, it’s good tracking but not perfect, can be a bit frustrating
16:20:54 From Fabien Benetou : doesnt make headset optional though.
16:21:26 From Peter Wasilko : @Fabien thanks for the insights!
16:31:11 From Peter Wasilko : I think a first analytic step is to identify the dimensions and domains of the material in the dataset.
16:35:25 From Rafael Nepô : Important book Plug because of flowers
16:36:41 From Peter Wasilko : (e.g. – geographic location, geographic region set, point in time, temporal range; development stage in lifecycle; 3-D model of specimen of gender at development stage, etc); date of first observation at location; date of most recent observation; populate size (high and low bound); related news stories (e.g. dead sperm whale explodes on beach), etc…….)
16:36:45 From Fabien Benetou : example of 3D models of plants in sufficient quality and price
16:36:45 From Mark Anderson : Botanical art is a wonder – often better than a photo for identification.
16:36:53 From Rafael Nepô : I agree
16:38:05 From Peter Wasilko : No animated Nemo to narrate the exhibit!
16:39:43 From Rafael Nepô : Frode remove this from video
16:39:44 From Rafael Nepô : Hahahha
16:39:54 From Frode Hegland : 🙂
16:43:41 From Rafael Nepô : I only have 1 screen as well. But it’s an anamorphic 2560×1080 screen. So movies fit perfectly and 2 windows to compare.
16:50:43 From Peter Wasilko : I vaguely recall the University of Maryland doing some taxonomy visualizations in the 90’s back when everything was a Java demo.
16:52:13 From Fabien Benetou : latent space
16:52:36 From Peter Wasilko :
16:52:58 From Fabien Benetou : nice
16:55:17 From Peter Wasilko :
16:58:22 From Peter Wasilko :
17:01:21 From Mark Anderson : Rafael’s point chimes with our previous discussion of a series of different guided tours ‘curated’ by different guides. IOW, a series of trails thruogh the corpus.
17:01:56 From Brandel Zachernuk : Like a recorded chalk talk with the possibility of some interactive moments
17:02:27 From Peter Wasilko :
17:03:22 From Mark Anderson : I’m reminded of the Radio 4 (UK) series on the ‘History of Mankind through 100 object’ (the objects in this case all artefacts at the British Museum). I imagine there are a number of interesting trails amongst the Linnaean ‘slips’.
17:03:42 From Adam Wern : Frode: Have you tried “Waltz of the wizard” on your headset?
17:04:40 From Frode Hegland : no, will do!
17:04:42 From Adam Wern : It has this alchemy / magic studio with hand tracking and different magical experiences
17:04:49 From Mark Anderson : Not suggesting people rush to get it, but this is the above program:
17:07:27 From Mark Anderson : Downloads may be restricted to UK (don’t know)
17:07:29 From Rafael Nepô : Botanical Slips as the foundation of Index Cards are nice XD
17:08:31 From Peter Wasilko : Translations of the Latin names into English is a Must!
17:10:27 From Fabien Benetou : on sound or lack of visual in VR
17:14:05 From Adam Wern : I was almost hesitant to put that snowdrop model on the card because of this!
17:14:23 From Frode Hegland : yes, should be a clear boundary
17:14:27 From Mark Anderson : I like the snowdrop!
17:14:41 From Frode Hegland : what’s in the museum and what is in the world and how do they relate?
17:14:58 From Fabien Benetou : “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” kind of moment.
17:15:46 From Fabien Benetou :
17:17:50 From Adam Wern : Perhaps only a desk with cards + pressed flowers as interactive objects, triggering similar things when lifted (or placed on plate)
17:18:44 From Frode Hegland : YES Adam
17:19:04 From Adam Wern : 360 camera next time
17:19:35 From Brandel Zachernuk : is the biggest I can find
17:20:01 From Rafael Nepô : I’m going to have to take off now. Got another meeting!
17:20:38 From Rafael Nepô : I like botanical slips and there’s more possibilities than ancient egypt i think
17:20:42 From Rafael Nepô : Cheers
17:24:16 From Frode Hegland : Bigger taxonomy: I’ll also put in Twitter chat
17:24:58 From Fabien Benetou : Moebius desk
17:27:02 From Frode Hegland : ok, logging off here, will go to car and try to rejoin. I’m sorry about this today
