Episode 137 – Augmented Reality in the Boardroom & Beyond was recorded on Friday, the 20th of May 2016.
Microsoft’s Hololens NFL of the future —
Phaedra and Michael M take time out to talk about mental wellness gaming applications, a “first person shooter” from the perspective of a civillian struggling to survive, and corporate collaboration applications making great use of data visualizations for problem solving now, and for the opportunities for machine learning and augmented reality for the future.
Michael was very impressed with the Microsoft Surface he saw at the SAP SapphireNow coference in Orlando last week, and made the connection for how the Microsoft Hololens product could make the collaboration even greater with augmented reality — not just for business applications, but also for medical scenaros, where a specialist could ‘beam into’ the operating theater, and highlight what needed to be done for the surgeons in the room.
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!
Episode 133 – Game Brains was recorded on Friday, the 18th of February 2016.
Does playing video games make you smarter? Michael and Michael answer this question with a resounding “maybe”, as they go through a tour of several interesting links, from Google’s DeepMind computer playing Go, to Volvos starting up without keys, to toys that think and 3D printing going back to 1964 with plastigoop.
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.
Michael and Michael are back to kick off 2016 a bit later than planned, but we have an exciting show. Michael R. get’s us all up to speed on the things he saw at CES this year, we talk about a hotel in Amsterdam that let’s you play games, Microsoft releases a version of Minecraft focused on K-12 education, and net neutrality is back in the news. So take a listen and let us know what you think on this episode of GamesAtWork.biz
They said it would never happen, but we got all three co-hosts together for this final episode of 2015. Phaedra, Michael M. and Michael R. get together to NOT talk about Star Wars:
While we wanted to know all about the new Star Wars, but we know, you don’t want to know, until you know – you know? So we have a spoiler free show!
While we are expanding our format to more tech topics, we have a blast talking about Lego’s serious Play, we look at the state of Computer Science education with the US Department of Education, and Lego Dimensions.
