Austin’s weather was chilly today, but dry…a welcome break from yesterday’s downpours. No movies for me today. Instead, I attended some Interactive sessions and wandered around the Trade Show (Austin Convention Center), SxSW Gaming (Palmer Events Center) and SxSW Create (Long Center Terrace).

Interview with Shaquille O’Neal about wearable technology. Frequent mentions of FitBit made me wonder if he was doing an endorsement. I later learned that he was.

3-D printers and drones were all the craze at SxSW Create, which seemed like a smaller, almost-normal version of a Maker Faire.

Meanwhile over at SxSW Gaming: Paperdude VR looks like quite a workout.
