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!

We begin to share a few tales in today’s show, especially our investigations of the Berlin Wall and its significance today.  It’s also an exciting week for Japanese space endeavors, with their successful landing on an asteroid and the launch of an experiment exploring the concept of space elevators, a long time sci fi dream. Meanwhile, back on earth, Houston is struggling with how to deal with the opening of America’s first Robo Sex Brothel. Tickets to Westworld, anyone?

Interview - Mark Hastings, D.C. on The Power of Thought

Listen Now to Dr. Mark Hastings

A long time chiroparactor and practitioner of wholistic health, Dr. Mark Hastings discusses with us his new book, The Well of Truth, about how our thoughts create our experiences in life.  Drawn from his experiences with thousands of patients and personal practice of mind training exercises, he outlines in less than 70 pages the essential processes of reprogramming your brain to create a better life.  You may not agree with everything he says, but Mark does claim that if you apply the lessons outlined, the results speak for themselves.  I think you’ll enjoy our explorations of the mind with the good doctor..Enjoy!

Listen Now to Future News 9.04.2018

Lots of robots this week! We loved the giant orb at Burningman, celebrating robots this year as it’s theme. And we are looking forward to Japan’s Hayabusa-2 spacecraft sending a lander to Ryugu, a near earth object, an asteroid orbiting our planet, later this month.  Once it lands, it will be deploying to two spring-powered robots to investigate the giant space rock, bouncing around until they find something interesting to report. There is also a new commercial kitchen robot, “Flippy,” and an international UN conference to try to ban Killer Robots (they failed). Meanwhile, other robots have discovered massive amounts of water on Jupiter, suggesting that the giant red spot may be powered by the life-giving substance and perhaps might support life on the gas giant.  Could life actually exist on Jupiter..maybe… Enjoy!

This year’s Burning Man festival theme was “I, Robot,” and two Danish designers caught people’s attention with a 100-foot-tall orb on a mast.
