Wow! Do we have a hot show for you this week! All three of our show hosts are together to scorch your ear holes! We begin with Linden Lab’s new hotness – Project Sansar, bounce on over to the hot new AR game Pokémon Go, look at hot technology with Blockchain, and we end the show with a review of some hot new start up and education incubators in Europe.
Michael and Michael are back this week (after another travel based hiatus) to talk about augmented reality, virtual reality, movies, games, games based on movies, code camp for kids, managing happiness, twitter, and agile development! This jammed packed episode is brought to you by the letters “A”, “R” and “V”. So sit back, listen, drop us a review or a rating, and enjoy!
This week’s show features our co-hosts Phaedra and Michael R. who get to have some fun looking at the latest AR app, all about Pokemon! Have you collected them all? We also look at the report from Riot Games (makers of League of Legends) and their employee assessment on toxicity in the work place. Does your online gaming behavior translate to your behavior at work? There appears to be a correlation.
Michael ends the show with a really quick review of Warcraft! The Movie!!! Let’s just say – go see it!
This week Michael and Michael look at another example of NFC Rings, this time by Visa for the athletes of the 2016 Olympics. We also investigate a new way to combine AR and VR with Occipital’s new purchase. And talk about a few of our new games we are playing. Check it out!
The Michael’s look at the Internet of Things thru NFC based Commitment Rings, trying to decide if it would really provide the value that the site claims. Would you be able to keep your partner from watching your favorite show, before you? Can we tie it to blockchain (short answer – NO!). Can you use this for secure transaction? What about restaurant use cases? Then we switch to BTLE as a potential solution… ultimately we think thru interesting use cases… would love to hear your ideas. Michael M. then transitions to his recent experience using Square as a vendor… have you accepted cash via square yet?
Michael R. then takes us thru his experiences at MoogFest…Check out his wrap up over here. After 30 years, Michael also learns to say Moog (Think Vogue) not Moog (Moo GH). We look at cool tools like the Artiphon and the Brother From Another Mother – BFAM. And some really great music by Silver Apples (Check out the embedded video above.
Finally we wrap up with a few games.. and Michael R. get’s hooked on Michael M’s recommendation of Exploding Kittens!
Welcome listeners! This weeks show is short and sweet. Due to uncontrollable events, we have a short solo show with our Co-Host and Co-Founder – Michael R. Somehow the entire month of April slipped by without our team being able to get together, and after a couple last minute, unforeseen events occurred, we decided to put together a short show about some of the cool links we’ve gotten in our Twitter feed over at GamesAtWork_Biz. So enjoy the abbreviated show, and drop us your feedback. We’d love to hear from you.
The Michael’s are enjoying the pollen covered world of North Carolina as we discuss Twitter Bots, Self Tying shoes, Kinetic Energy, Hearables, and Star Wars! The Bragi-Dash is a new “hearable” that allows you to leverage the ear canal for sensors in health and fitness. We also talk KickStarter support of two movies – Michel R. supported one about actors in the original Star Wars called “Elstree 1976” and “Meet the Patels” was supported by Michael M. We then quickly jump on the band wagon to talk briefly about Virtual Reality.
Michael R and Phaedra are back after a prolonged absence, and we obsess about all kinds of conferences. Phaedra is in the middle of conference season, but joins Michael this week to look at a whole host of great ideas on MindCraft, NASA, App Challenges, Simulation, and Virtual Realities. We also take an amazing trip down memory lane to relive the Worst Game that Phaedra has ever played!
Do us a favor, drop us a five star rating on iTunes and for Review post a story on the worst game you’ve ever played!
The Michael’s get back to together to talk about gaming getting up in the morning, 3d Touch based trivia, and spending a wonderful Saturday role playing at the library with the team from Bully Pulpit Games.
