I love the cinema but I had never been to an IMAX before. Then almost a year ago at the end of the Microsoft Partners in Learning Global Forum in Washington DC (where I was a judge) we managed to get an extra two days in the city seeing the sights before flying home.
I had a great two days with my friends Stuart Ball (Microsoft), Ian Stuart (Islay High School) and Gareth Ritter (Willows High School · Cardiff). We did many geeky things which pretty much consisted of talking about technology, getting up early to take digital photos of the sunrise, a skegway tour of the city, a trip to Space Museum (where we got to pretend to be astronauts) and a quick visit to the dinosaur museum!
Anyway here we are watching Hubble 3D at the IMAX - It was amazing. But it also reinforced to me how ridiculous you look with 3D glasses on.
Just one of the reasons why I think 3D TV is still a long way off catching on at home!
