Five attention grabbers at SPAR

Digging through the mountain of material I collected at SPAR International last week, it’s hard to pick out what absolutely needs to get up on the site first. It will certainly take me a couple of weeks to sort through it all. First on the list, though, are those things that happened at the show that caused me to grab for my iPhone immediately.

These are the little pieces of interest that I hadn’t planned for, but popped up and forced me to grab my phone and grab some video, to document what was happening when my laptop just wasn’t available or just wouldn’t do the trick. Stuff where I really felt like I needed to show you what was happening, rather than just tell you after the fact.

So, I’ve collected these bits of video into this week’s SPARVlog. From historic firsts to new pieces of technology that are just plain cool, I think you’ll find these five items to be a microcosm of what happens at a conference when you least expect it.
