On today's show, we check out a cool tricorder prototype with actual working sensors, discuss the adaptation of '90s PC game Myst into a TV show, and show you a racing game that uses projection tech to generate courses out of tangible objects.
Dr. Peter Jansen has been working on various tricorder prototypes for over 7 years, and now, he's showing off his newest prototype, the Arducorder. It's not quite ready to scan alien life forms or diagnose patients, but it's still pretty cool to see in action.
An Aussie-designed "smart bag" uses GPS tracking to help you manage your money by locking up when you are near danger spending zones.
