Gps accuracy - Cliff has a new gps to test out. Mike has nearly
finished the software for linux so will be testing the gps out soon with
Cliff in Millennium Square 3D audio - is now working real time. Amoss/Henk are working on
audio quality. There is a known problem with linux and the sound chip,
but Henk and Amoss are confident. networking - No response from Neil Davies as yet. Henk will phone him. Basic wearable kit - Henk will meet with Annie to go through the
kit, will use an old brick as it is the same form factor as the one we
are currently using.
Aerials / Network:
We are still waiting for Neil Davies to sort out access to the BCTN.
Futurelab is a good potential site for an aerial, inside their building,
that could cover the back of the Watershed.
Constance has contacted city planning dept re Watershed and possibly
Queen Square as sites for aerials. Waiting for response.
Henk is meeting Matt Williams re the plan to have lots of aerials
installed around Bristol. He has also met with Rupert and ? re
installing around Easton/Barton Hill as part of an on-line learning
project that is happening there. They are meeting David to discuss this.
Constance is meeting with people at Arnolfini to discuss possible aerial
on their roof.
For now we will do without the spatialisation and network, this will
allow Annie and Roger to test out where to place their sounds, and give
Cliff some data for his paper. Mike will go there with Annie and Roger while Cliff
is in Glasgow.

Movies on the move
Discussed (very draft) proposal for Movies on the Move, a potential
project to run using 802.11. Constance to arrange meeting at HP with Ana
and Phil to discuss further. Phil says that HP can stream movies over
802.11, so could test idea in atrium as suggested in 'phase one'.
Cliff suggested a clearer game outline would be useful, and looking at
Doom as an outdoor game.
