You might think you're seeing a virtual tour of a real apartment in Paris, but it's actually a complete fabrication, created on a computer. This little CG apartment might seem like no big deal, but it's a huge testament to what's possible with the newest version of Unreal Engine, and we're excited.
This is the daily tech show to beat all others.
On today's show, we give kudos (and chuckle a bit) at one man's attempt to make a mechanical horse at home, check out a jaw-droppingly realistic render from Unreal Engine 4 and discuss an inflatable planetarium with laser-projected stars inside.
London-based design company Gravity announced "Lego X," a project that aims to turn the Duplo and Lego blocks laying around your house into a 3D design kit, giving you the perfect excuse to buy more Lego sets.
On today's show, we take a look at a new way to make water-resistant metal using lasers, discuss what Oculus VR's new movie studio means for the entertainment industry, and check out a kit that takes building with Lego to a whole new level.
The Boganyi Piano took over ten years and 8,000 engineering hours to create, and the results are a stunning musical instrument that looks like a spaceship. It's also got some internal upgrades that make it less susceptible to the elements, and require less maintenance.
On today's show, we shudder at a robot bat that can easily switch between flying and moving on the ground, check out a headset that blurs out corporate logos in real life, and enjoy the beauty of a futuristic piano with over 18,000 parts.
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?
On today's show, we check out Bill Nye and the Planetary Society's new privately funded spacecraft, discuss Mozilla's plans for VR, 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.
