… but I’m not geeky enough. Sure I can put GoogleMaps on my Movable Type blog, but can I broadcast live from around town? Well … sure, especially with my Blackberry. But can I do it with video?
This guy can. He’s “Shakin Dave”. His website’s at ShakinDave.com, and he webcasts live as he walks around NYC.
Here is a list of all the equipment he uses to pull this off:
- Tablet PC (Motion Computing)
- EVDO card
- Video glasses
- USB analog-to-digital video capture board
- GPS receiver
For software, he’s using Windows XP Tablet, Windows Media Encoder, VZAccess Manager, and a custom-written app that transmits the GPS data. He’s apparently applying for a patent for the broadcasting platform.
Now that’s geek-sheik.
