HP Labs Innovation at HP Discover

At HP Discover 2012 in Frankfurt, I met Martina Trucco and did a really fun video with her where we talked about things going on in HP Labs.  Martina is also the managing editor of the Innovation @ HP Labs blog


I think the video rose to the top of the minds of the guys in the video crew in Frankfurt because they shot video for 2 1/2 days with the camera pointed in the same direction for over 50 videos they did.  Someone on the team who knows I'm a bit "adventurous" came to me and suggested that we could do the video with Martina sitting on a roof so the video guys could point the camera in a different direction. 


I reached out to Martina before we left for Barcelona to see if we could do another video and while the setting wasn't sitting on a roof, I was able to get together with her so she could tell me about an Innovation Theatre session she hosted with several leaders from HP Labs.  We didn't have a video crew for this video - I actually shot the video and did the editing.  I also was at the Innovation Theatre session and grabbed some video from that as B-roll I used in this video - so check it out!


The Innovation Theatre session The Future According to HP Labs is now available on They show a Moonshot proto board that has 4 processors, 16GB of Memory, and 500GB of NV memory - in the size of a credit card! Check it out - the discussion will blow you away!
