Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be. Michael and Michael discuss the difference between reboots and repeats using movies such as the Matrix and Aliens, as well as in the gaming world such as Leisure Suit Larry and the Nimblebit games. The review of Thimbeweed Park serves as a tremendous launch point for this conversation.
Rounding out the show, the team talks about the recent innovation from Adidas, shoes made from bioengineered spider silk. 3D printing remains a hot topic with both of them, as evidenced by Michael R’s recent creation, a sausage roll prop used for the Durham Savoyard’s recent Gilbert & Sullivan production of The Grand Duke.
This week the Michael’s talk about a few cool things that they’ve been up to over the last two weeks. Michael M. talks about how augmented reality can be used in the modern manufacturing facility. While Michael R. Talks about augmented reality is being experienced with his new set of Google Glass. And then we take it ONE STEP BEYOND into 3D Printing! Drop us comments on your thoughts on any of our social sites, including this blog!
The Michaels take a quick diversion to talk about how 3D Printing can change work and gaming. Is this just an excuse for Michael R. to talk about all the fun he’s had playing with his new MakerBot? We propose that it is not the case. For those of you who check out our website we have a great pic of a before and after view of a 3d Scan/Print.
We also discuss the WoW Model Viewer and how it allows you to play with models from within the game World of Warcraft.
Michael M. tells us about TwinKind and an innovative company in Germany doing cool things with 3d Printing of yourself. Can we say Mini-Me?
3D Printing is going to be an incredibly disruptive force in supply chain, we will no longer need to move atoms around the world to create what people need. What’s next – turning 3D printing to gold? Perhaps the guys over at MadeSolid in material science can help us advance that.
We then look at how the Smart Phone has been realized as old technology, loads of funny. Makes us all want to go out and pick up a new Fanny Pack.
