"You put in your memory card," he says, "and it prints thumbnails of all your photos."
"Uh, OK," I reply.
"Wait, this is the cool bit. On the printout, there are little boxes next to the thumbnails. You tick the size you need, and put the paper back in the machine. It reads your ticks and prints the pics you want automatically!"

Julia, Aviv, Joe and Cale recently completed a project working with older people to improve the service design around access to health care in Buckinghamshire. As they write:
"Engine worked with a multidisciplinary team of local government members, residents and service providers in Bucks to develop SHAPE. Our aims were:
1. to engage local residents, elected councillors, public and voluntary service providers in the design of a service-based solution to one of biggest problems facing elderly residents in Bucks access to health and social care
2. to develop a methodology for service innovation through community engagement "
Last night I went to Shunt with Steve, Davina and others. We actually went to see a great band play on the underground pirate ship, but that wasn’t the best bit - The best bit was the simulated air crash experience/scary zip line into a blinding light as part of a project called Airphoria, organised the talented chaps at Aerial. As they say on their website:
“…to acknowledge such incidents [air crashes] as being thrilling is considered taboo. Experiences and memories of thrill are displaced by the horrors of human tragedy. Thoughts of thrill are only reintroduced at a ‘respectful’ later date through sanitised stories of heroism. But what if the emotion of thrill prevailed, and the act of creation were nurtured beyond the moment of fusion? Airphoria explores one possible alternative.”
