Episode 38 – Local Radio Station Interview

Episode 38, August 13, 2016

Back in June I was interviewed as a guest on a morning talk show called “Chicks Dishing” at a local radio station, WLTN-FM, in the White Mountains region of Littleton, New Hampshire. In this episode I replay the show, about a half-hour. We were invited on air to promote a new local meetup group, the Littleton Tech Meetup, but we spent considerable time talking about virtual reality. It was fun framing the conversation for a general audience including people who probably have never seen or even heard of virtual reality and augmented reality.

Episode 30 – Wired Illuminates the Artificial Reality Revolution

Episode 30, April 20, 2016

 

Yesterday a fantastic article was published in Wired, “The Untold Story of Magic Leap, the World’s Most Secretive Startup” by Kevin Kelly purportedly about the stealth startup, Magic Leap, but it’s really an amazing survey of the state of the art of the VR and mixed reality revolution. I’ve decided to share it with you, Audiobook-style in this special episode. Actually I’m not sure this is entirely legal and I will happily take it down if Wired insists, but meanwhile, if you listen to this episode please also visit the actual article on Wired.com so they’ll benefit from your eyeballs.

Episode 29 – Humans communicating, waiting for consumer VR

Episode 29, April 7, 2016

In this episode we’re still waiting around for our consumer VR devices to ship, and I had to quit my job just to make sure someone was home when the delivery trucks arrive. Meanwhile we’ve been acting humanly social, talking to each other, strangers in Best Buy, and attendees at meet-ups and conferences. So let’s just chat about all kinds of random things VR and AR.

Episode 28 – Room-scale Versus Seated VR

Episode 28, March 9, 2016

In this episode we discuss an article contrasting room-scale versus seated VR experiences recently written by Borrowed Light Studios. We then contrast it with a talk from Jono Forbes at Vision Summit on room scale for complex room levels. But first we chat about whether two to three years is a reasonable horizon for developing new games and learning new technologies, and other random things VR and AR.
