Bang Goes The Theory

Firstly welcome to my Linux On TV blog!

I'm dedicating this blog to showing Linux (and other OSS software) on various TV programmes, wherever I can spot it, starting with the first episode on the BBC's new TV show Bang Goes The Theory. I spotted a Gnome desktop and Terminal open showing output from a programme measuring the gait of the presenters. The University of Southampton is researching into how we can be recognised from the way we walk, for surveillance purposes. As for the show itself, it's a shame it's not as good as Tomorrows World in it's heyday. Some more intelligent presenters would be great.


As you can see, they are using the Nvidia Cuda SDK:

At the moment you can still view the episode on BBC iPlayer here
