Linknode Platoon!

To celebrate our 5th birthday, yesterday, we suited up for an afternoon of go-karting and strategic laser combat.


The go-karting was a GP3 – 10 qualifying laps, 12 heat laps, and then a 14 lap final race. Couple of crashes – George spun and got stuck, which made Dave stop, at which point Abi came careering round the corner, full speed and smashed right into the back of Dave. Ouch!

In the final race, Dave and Minh both got red-flagged for ‘accidentally’ nudging other drivers!

Final podium winners were:

Bronze: Rufus Mall
Silver: Ryan Welsh
Gold: Crispin Hoult

Exploring through a 360 panoramic photograph

As a company, Linknode are always looking for new ways of presenting information that could help our customers.
Recently we have been trying out Google Cardboard as a way to present 360° photographs. As you’ll see below, these 360° photographs look good and work well, so today we are announcing the VentusAR Cardboard app: a way of display gallery images in a Google Cardboard. Continue reading
