Future News - Blood Moon, Tesla Range Increase, Black Holes Clash, Snowden's First Tweet, Panos VR Update, Taylor on Apple Watch, TV, and iPad Pro  

Listen Now to Future News 9.29.15

Did you see the last blood moon lunar eclipse this past Sunday?  Very special, and a little challenging for those in our bioregion.  Though we did finally see the last bit of it peaking out of mostly cloudy skies, we had a pristine perspective via NASA TV on our iPad..Very sweet!

Did you ever wonder what happens when two black holes collide?  Astronomers have discovered what appears to be a pair of supermassive black holes circling toward a collision so powerful it would send a burst of gravitational waves surging through the fabric of space-time itself. The smash-up is expected to happen in 100,000 years or so, a blink of the eye in cosmic time!

We have two live reports this week, the first from VR pioneer Greg Panos, who chaired a session on early VR at Siggraph 2015 and just attended an Occulus Rift convention.  in a nutshell, VR is coning on like a freight train, arriving in stores by this time next year.  Meanwhile, Apple’s shiny new products are out this fall and we have our Apple pundit Taylor Barcroft present his second segment on them, with a focus on Apple Watch, the new Apple TV and the new iPad Pro.  If you’ve been thinking about  these gadgets, you’ll appreciate what Taylor has to say.  Enjoy!

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 6.16.2015

It is the summer, we are on the road, but the show continues, as there are many new amazing things to report.  We were quite impressed with a paper by Zack Kanter entitled “How Uber’s Autonomous Cars will Destroy 10 Million Jobs and Reshape the Exonomy by 2025,” and spend some time discussing it.  

This is a big week for Virtual and Augmented Reality fans, with the AWE 2015 and E3 events unfolding.  To bring us up to speed here we have our favorite pundit Greg Panos on deck, to help us make sense of it all! Enjoy!

Looking for the Future at the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas`

Listen Now to our live NAB show with Gregory Panos

This week we take our show on the road to The National Association of Broadcasters, in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada.  Well, mostly sunny.  We had a really bad dust storm that made the sun look like the moon for a few hours.  It was reminiscent of dusty days on the Playa, at Burning Man, also in the Nevada desert, just a little further north and out..

To comment with us on the many interesting things we saw at NAB, we have Gregory Panos, a long time cohort and pundit in the evoling media world. He has been especially tracking the new wave of augmented and virtual reality that is currently sweeping the mediosphere.

We talk about 360 degree live VR rigs, BlackMagic’s new  breakthrough cinema cam, wooden cameras, and wishing for our favorite weathercaster from Maui, “Sue Nomi”.

The Drone Pavilion was chalk full of new flying robots from all over the world, with live demos all day. 

We had a lot of fun at the show and are looking forward to sharing with you what we gleaned from this big show.
