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.
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.
MakerBot announces at CES 2015 new PLA-based filaments made with composites of real metal, stone and wood, and a remote monitoring feature for its latest 3D printers.
Bigelow's "BEAM" is an expandable module for the International Space Station hoping to be a stepping stone towards commercial space accommodations, but the current $50 million price tag is a little astronomical. So...Kickstarter to send us to space, anyone?
On today's show, we debate the cost of staying in a space hotel, check out an unbelievably realistic CG render named "Ed," and imagine what we'd do with a jacket that changes color to match whatever you're touching.
Australian artist Chris Jones is constructing a hyper-realistic human body in CG animation, piece by painstaking piece.
We're loving this "invisibility cloaking" from Rochester University; apparently, you can recreate this effect with off-the-shelf lenses, but the university hopes to apply the technology to things like getting surgeons' hands out of the way during procedures. It's not quite Harry Potter, but it's still pretty cool.
On today's show, we check out a wearable drone named Nixie, watch realistic cars race the Nintendo 64 version of Rainbow Road, discuss a flexible phablet for your wrist, and learn more about Rochester University's invisibility cloak lenses.
The dedicated dad who built the NASA Mission Control Desk for his sons hopes to teach them more about space with this impressive simulator. Ground Control to Major Dad, all systems go!
The next evolution in wireless networking holds promises of self-driving cars and movies that download in the blink of an eye. 5G is big at this year's Mobile World Congress, but don't expect it until 2020.
