360VLOG: A beautiful day in a park, and getting a new camera…

It’s a beautiful day, and I needed to get outside, get out of the studio, and see the sun. I’m about decided on what to do about my camera situation, so let’s chat about repairs and upgrades.

360VLOG: Gadget Lab 2.0 Office Tour! How I get work done!

I’ve been asked several times recently to chat about how I’ve set up my office to shoot YouTube videos. Thought this would be a fun opportunity to use the Insta360 Air again. At least the easiest way to shoot a video like this and not have to do a ton of editing… But I digress…

The Barcelo Sants Hotel has one of the geekiest/coolest aesthetics of any hotel I’ve ever seen. Definitely need to stay there on a future trek back to Barcelona. Jaime drops by to help me need out on some sci-fi gear in the lobby.
