As Yasser mentioned recently, Radio Labs is up in Manchester for the next couple of days at Futuresonic. We're set up on the first level of the Contact Theatre with a couple of screens, a sound system and a load of computers and cables. Why? Because we (possibly foolishly) volunteered to spend the two days of the conference hacking together a prototype.
So what's it going to be? Well we're not sure yet, that's part of the process, but we think we're going to be prototyping something with Arduino, cameras, live radio and visuals. More details to follow.

Update: We did build something! We ended up with some Processing-driven motion tracking which fed live data to some audio filters applied to live radio. It certainly got people double-taking as they walked past and caused strange machine-like sounds. And we learnt that it was really hard developing something in a conference environment - people coming up to talk to you isn't necessarily conducive to coding. And you miss out on the sessions.
