Crave Podcast 76: Probing the Frag Dolls

In this week's episode, we put two of the biggest players in the industry head to head. CNET.co.uk's own Rory Reid and Jam, of the all-girl gaming crew Frag Dolls

In this week's Crave Podcast, we put two of the biggest players in the industry head to head. CNET.co.uk's own Rory 'Killer Instinct' Reid and Jam, of the all-girl gaming crew Frag Dolls, bump heads in the gaming quiz to end all gaming quizzes. Ladies and gentlemen, it's the Great Crave Brain Slam!

But first, we warm up by dissecting the week's most interesting news. Heard the one about the UK videogame developer who's making a Holocaust game aimed at kids for the Nintendo DS? The haven't-read-the-whole-story reactionary end of the Internet is up in arms, but our esteemed panel supports the idea.

We also support the idea of three-dimensional porn, which is just around the corner. Apparently scientists can coat a clear sheet of paper with a photosensitive polymer, then use a laser to define parts of the picture as minuscule dots. Then by slightly altering the refractive index of these dots, the light bouncing off the printed surface generates interference patterns. These then assembled to produce an image that appears to float. Crazy. And hot.

As if that weren't enough, Rory and Rupert Goodwins get into a heated debate about whether Wi-Fi hotspots are doomed, and whether artificial chemical brains are a good thing. But they quickly make up to bring you the most incredible news story of the year: a device that will one day make us all telepathic. And it works!
