Room with a view

Pyramidion has a new home.

Our full new address is Mechelsesteenweg 271, bus 1.1, 2018 Antwerpen. The point in the postbox number is rather important as otherwise our mail gets delivered to one of the other companies in the building. It’s ... Read more

Beauty, empathy, creativity

What is the difference between a good product and a great one? What makes the mediocre, magical? These were some of the thoughts that ran through my mind during the Creativity World Forum 2017 in Aarhus, Denmark. As someone with a technical background, I appreciate function. I want it to work well, whether it is the latest smartphone, office building or public transport network. But, and this is a big but, like pretty much everyone else I also want it to look ...

Unless you've been living under a rock lately, you've probably heard a thing or two about "fake news" and how we are living in a "post-truth society". Now, there are several views to take and sides to choose when it comes to this phenomenon. For the sake of relevance and brevity, however, today we will only examine one of its aspects: trust. Why trust? Well, both as a communicator and as a human being, I am becoming increasingly obsessed with trust. Especially with the ... Read more

HoloLens – mixed reality is all about perception

I recently attended a ‘Campus New Technology Seminar on Future IT’ at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven. The primary reason for going was not the ‘Data Security’ talk, which was interesting, but to get a chance to see and hear about Microsoft’s HoloLens. Now I freely admit I’m a tech geek, and getting the opportunity to see or play with new tech always interests me. However, I did have some concerns when during the demonstration I heard the word ‘stereoscopic’. Not because ... Read more

Getting into character when writing a script

Every now and again you come across a little side project where you think, why not. One of my friends told me about a campaign that was being created to promote the UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Netherlands to the Dutch, and that they were looking for a Scotsman to appear in the videos. Well as you can guess, I took the bait. Various emails, a short introductory video of myself, and a promise that I had my own kilt later, ... Read more
