Mozilla is on a path to add core virtual reality support to their Firefox browser, and Khail and Ashley are "scarexcited" about it. Will we ever leave the internet if we can experience it in a VR headset?
This is the daily tech show to beat all others.
On today's show, we check out Bill Nye and the Planetary Society's new privately funded spacecraft, discuss Mozilla's plan to include VR in their Firefox browser, and wonder about the future of 3D-printed apartment buildings.
An all-robot press conference in Japan introduced us to CommU and Sota, two of the cutest robots we've ever seen. There's a bit more to them than simply looking "kawaii": they may someday be capable of acting as a kind of robo-companion for Japan's elderly population.
On today's show, we discuss the DARPA Robotics Challenge (and the rebuilt Atlas robot entering the competition), explain how you can sign up for a free online class about alien life (taught by a Harvard professor), and get gooey over the cutest robot press conference of all time.
This robot has a unique set of skills. That set of skills is not like Liam Neeson's in "Taken," though; thanks to AI, this particular robot learns how to cook by watching humans create culinary delights on YouTube.
On today's show, we debate the future of HoloLens, Microsoft's newest augmented reality device. We also check out a robot who learned to cook by watching humans on YouTube and a stunning interactive art installation in Japan.
These beautiful works of art, created by Stanford design instructor John Edmark, were inspired and made possible by the Fibonacci sequence. They're a sight to behold when viewed under a strobe light or at low shutter speeds, so don't miss seeing them come to life on today's show!
On today's show, we discuss how a 3D-printed model saved a girl's life, watch Super Mario play his own game with the help of AI, and check out some amazing zoetrope sculptures inspired and built with the Fibonacci sequence in mind.
Designer Roderick Mann had old-fashioned radio serials in mind when he took a 1936 Goldentone radio and replaced its innards with fresh tech. Now, he can listen to new podcasts that sound like old shows, with a device that looks antique but works for the modern age.
On today's show, Bryan Bishop of "The Film Vault" fills in for a sick Khail. Our stories include a fleet of robots at a San Francisco hospital, Amazon Original Movies announced, an antique radio converted into a podcast player and a Kickstarter for an under-desk foot hammock.
