Episode 148 – Painting with Digital and Physical Ink

In this episode, Michael and Michael struggle with the pronunciation of the Nissan Qashqai which features prominently as a recently completed work of 3Doodler art — a life sized vehicle that took 800 hours to craft. Moving to the digital realm, they discuss Google’s experiment with digital collaboration called Tilt Brush which allows multiple people to create & paint together in real time. The intersection between the digital and physical realms becomes even more tangible with the hospitality industry adoption of wearable devices to improve customer service, and an interesting sidebar on how blockchain can provide an even deeper engagement between customers and the businesses that serve them. Could a smart contract via blockchain improve your dining out experience? We think so!
