The Open University's Charter Day celebrations concluded with the Learn About Fair yesterday.

People from all over the OU found out more about a variety KMi projects, including Engage and EDV. It was a particularly good opportunity for the latter to showcase the Democratic Replay tool, as we quickly approach the UK General Election next month.

The two day fair was well attended and we exhibited to several VIP guests. Zdenek was pleased to discuss OU Analyse with Chancellor, Martha-Lane Fox, who showed a real interst in the work behind it. Members of MK:Smart were also given the chance to meet Vice Chancellor Peter Horrocks and Mark Lancaster, MP for North East Milton Keynes.

There was clear interest in our technologies from different faculties. We were approached about exhibiting our AR demo and CORE work at an OU conference in June. There was lots of interest in Paul Hogan's AR app promoting MK:Smart. Take a look at it in action in the photo gallery.
