Where can I get feedback on some interaction designs for a high tech medium, either without breaking NDA or with more exposure?

I work in a small high tech group at a R&D company. We are developing some interactive systems for a heads-up display, and I'm looking to get feedback on my design work. Basically our options right now are to publish to big academic conferences like CHI or UIST, or basically keep totally quiet. The problem is that our work is not JUST scientific or JUST academic, but also we have more visual and interactive design stuff that communities like CHI don't critique the same way that say a community on behance.net would criticize.

A film about interaction design: what it says about us

Hello. May I vent? {smile}

I just watched Basset & Partners' nicely-produced short film about interaction design, called "Connecting." You can watch it here on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/52861634.  It's well done, it's full of people I like and admire, and I'm glad it exists. *Thank you* to the people who made it and the people who paid for it.

But it pushes a button, so, this post....

Interaction13 "early bird" ticket up for grab

Hi folks,

Sadly, Interaction13 is not in the cards for me this year due to getting my new business, DHealth, off the ground. My "early bird" ticket, priced at $750 vs. the now-$950 general ticket, is up for grabs. Please get in touch with me at ixd (at) elizabethbacon (dot) com to make arrangements for purchase/transfer.

Accessibility; font size and color contrast

i'm looking for a tool (or information) regarding accessibility. of course i know the common tools and w3c pages. what i'm looking for is a way to check the combination of fontsize and color-contrast.

tools like Colour contrast Analyzer are nice and helpful, but  i'm absolutely sure contrast can be lower using  - for example -  helvetica/50px/bold instead of times/12px/light/italic.
