Future News - Remembering Paul Allen, Transtech Conference, Human Biome Chorus, 10 Trillion FPS Camera, Update of Opportunity on Mars, Picturing the World's Economy, Google's Chinese Search Engine 

Listen Now to Future News 10.16.2018

Very sad to lose Paul Allen, one of the grand old men of microcomputing, visionary and benefactor to many. He will be deeply missed.  And don’t lose hope in contacting ‘Oppy’, our 14 year-old rover on Mars, still hunkered down from a planetary wide dust storm. We are looking forward to the upcoming Transtech Conference in Palo Alto, where some of our favorite topics will be explored, including sentient Androids and communicating with our human biome.  And have you ever wondered what light looks like when slowed down? Now, with a new 10 trillion fps camera, we can begin to study photons in slow motion! And Google has found a way to censor the internet in just the way the Chinese like it, so that they can enter that Asian universe.  Oh boy, enjoy!

Listen Now to Future News 10.09.2018

Lots of Space News this week, auch as a stunning Falcon 9 Vandenberg launch, seen up and down the West Coas of California! There is now another robot on the asteroid Ryugu, now two robots bouncing around that space rock.  And our venerable Voyager 2 spacecraft is leaving the solar system, a 41 year journey that has taken it past all the outer planets.

Back on Earth, it’s election time in America, and to help get folks to the polls, we have a local party, the Voter Participation Festival, with speakers, musicians, and artists  dedicated to encouraging voter participation and turnout in a fun way. On the show today we have a producer and musician stop by (Linda Kimmel and Melaku), to give us a taste of the festival. Open to all parties, there are also chefs providing free food, so no excuse not to vote this year!  Enjoy.

SETI and Alien Technosignatures, Penrose on Life after Death, Orbiting Lunar Platform, FBI Uses Face ID, Report on Oculus 5, Special FX wizard Ethan Summers on the Opening of HubX, an immersive media center in Santa Cruz. 

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 10.02.2018

After our Future News we our corresponents Greg Panos and Richard Cray report on Oculus 5, a major conference on VR (Virtual Reality) last week in San Jose, with a focus on the Oculus platform. The biggest news there was the announcement of Oculus Quest, a stand-alone headset with no longer any need for a computer or wires, slated for a Spring 2019 release.

We then have Ethan Summers in the studio, an Emmy award-winning visual special effects wizard, now focused on opening a center in Santa Cruz dedicated to Immersive Media, known as HubX.  It’ll be a place where visitors can have hands-on experiences with Virtual Reality and related immersive arts, and in the Makerspace tradition, learn to create one’s own stories in the new media.  Enjoy!
