Sony streaming Movies, 3D iPhone Scanner, amazing mobile Photosynth, Silicon Valley inventor Chuck Colby

Dr. Future Show 4.19.11  inventor Chuck Colby

Yes, indeed, the mobile computing platform is getting richer by the day. This week we check out the new iOS 3D scanner, and the remarkable Photosynth app, for your iOS devices.. Also the latest on the nuke robots, hackers in Libya, and access to the new Brain Navigator..

Our guest this week is Chuck Colby, an inventor with many firsts in the computer world who is now releasing a host of new iPad/iPhone products that are really quite useful, including an automobile black box recorder, and a low-cost teleprompter.  


It's all about Computer GAMES! Prof with us today, syposium on Friday

Dr. Future Show 4.12.11 Noah Wardrip-Fruin on Games

Japan radiation stories, secret weapons, constructing with printers, explosions in space, and our guest today will give you a taste of the many shades of rose colored gaming  futures. Assoc. Prof of Computer Science Noah Wardrip-Fruin will tell us about his “Expressive Intelligene Studio” at UCSC, and we’ll hear about “Inventing the Future of Games Symposium this friday in Silicon Valley.


Ancient Computer, Robots, Source Code, mobile HAARP, & Charles Ostman, Historian of the Future

Dr. Future Show 4.05.11 Charles Ostman

In the first hour we chat with KSCO host Corey Gold, check out Source Code, the new film, discuss the radiation-hardened robots in Japan, celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first portable computer, look at the latest with the oldest computer, the Antikythera mechanism, have  fun wtih  public broadcasting, and explore some the latest augmented reality apps for your smart phone.

Guest for our second hour is Charles Ostman, historian of the future, with whom we broach such topics as new mobile HAARP installations, Chinese government hacking, and the evolving synthetic sentience of the internet.


Guest is Dave Warren, organizer of upcoming TEDx Santa Cruz!

This week we are still concerned about Japanese radiation, but have robots to the rescue.. we find new value in old pottery shards, and explore towards the center of the earth. Also, will better batteries help you find your future you, and will that be enough of a scare to save money?

 Deep questions, but for even deeper ones, consider coming to TEDx Santa Cruz, this summer, June 11.  Retired prof and organizer of TEDx, Dave Warren, visits us in studio and gives us an understanding of just what TEDx is and what to expect from this most auspicious, if not futurely historic gathering about to unfold in our midst..


Phiometry with Solagritect Dr. Mohsen Hourmanesh

Dr. Future Show March 22, 2011 Guest- Dr. Mohsen Hourmanesh

 In the first hour, Dr. Future, and Agents Nada and Sun delve into Earthquake info, including new apps (see Links page), the impact of nuclear radiation, cruise missles, and Libya.

In the second hour, we meet the renaissance scientist, Dr. Mohsen Hourmanesh, who introduces us to the world of geometry in nature.

Dr. Mohsen Hourmanesh is an interdisciplinary research scientist with interesting synergetic and omnimorphic experimental applications expertise in the fields of sustainable environmental design and alternative health modalities. Mohsen received his B.S. in electrical engineering from Utah State University in 1972,  Master of Arch. in Passive Solar Design from the University of Texas at Austin in 1977, and went on to receive his Doctorate of Environmental Design (OmniMorphic Architecture and Health) from Texas A & M University in 1979. 

For past three decades Dr. Mohsen Hourmanesh has served as a Solagritect and/or consultant on numerous environmentally sustainable design projects including passive solar buildings design, sick building syndrome, conversion of municipal solid waste to methane, environmental ordinance development on CFC, IAQ, Methane and photovoltaic systems integration for municipal facilities.  Mohsen has written numerous articles about passive solar design and effective utilization of biomass as a clean sustainable energy sources. 

Born into a fourth generation of herb farmers, Mohsen also founded and operates theAvicenna, Studio for Health Design in Santa Cruz, California.  In his pursuit of optimal health design, Mohsen has investigated Avicennian Medicine, Bio-Gas, anaerobic digestion, bio-geometry, Phiometry and Phiologics of optimum health, naturopathic health research, nutropathic health research, naturopathic architecture, nutropathic architecture, the role of pH in bio magnetic and electrical pulse research, radisthesia, enesthisia, and synesthesia.
