Future News - Report on the Nano World's Fair, Cora - Google's Autonomous Flying Taxi, Twitter's Fast Traveling Fake Stories, Believable Fake Videos and their impact on us all, the End of Scarcity  

Listen Now to Future News 3.13.2018

We had a blast at the Nano World’s Fair in San Francisco last weekend and for the first part of the show share with you some of our highlights, from the speakers to the tech and food on display. It would have been nice to see Google’s new autonomous flying taxi, Cora, at the fair!

And this week, with a new report on how fake news spreads on Twitter, and the advent of what are known as “Deep Fake” videos, we have a lively conversation with call-ins, including VR Avatar pioneer Greg Panos, on what it all means for the future of news, especially. Enjoy!


Future News - Sun Reviews VR Gem "Dear Angelica" while AL visits ISS, Dragon Delivers Science Experiments, Matrix Reboots, Buzz on Mars, A Radical Rethink of the Brain, Nanowire Retinal Implants, Russians, Lies, and Political Intrigue

Listen Now to Future News 3.21.2017

It’s Mrs. Future’s birthday today and we see “Hamilton” after the show! (which was fantastic). We also had a whirlwind trip to LA and back, where among other things we had a chance to check out some of the latest VR titles, including “Dear Angelica,” and a little tour of the International Space Station. This dovetails nicely with the reboot of the Matrix film and the just released Mars tour by astronaut Buzz Aldrin!

We also discuss the newest bioengineered retinal implant and look at a radical rethink of how the brain works, while fielding input from some of our favorite callers, delving more into Trump, Russians, alternative health, and beyond!  Enjoy..





Future News - Report and Recommendations from Cinequest VR Festival, Blue Origin's New Glenn Heavy Lifter, Billionaire Investing in Singularity, Breakthrough in Revivication, VR pioneer Jean Yves Chainon on Social VR, A Closer Look at the WikiLeaks CIA Release

Listen Now to Future News 3.07.2017

We had a lot of fun this weekend attending the Cinequest Film and VR Festival in Silicon Valley.  Actually, we just attended the VR Fest..not that we don’t like films, its just that there was so much cool stuff with VR that we just didn’t have time for anything else!  So, the first part of today’s show is all about what we saw at the festival, with our recommendations.  At the 45 min mark, we ask VR creator Jean Yves Chainon about the future of social VR and who is in that world.

We also spent a considerable amount of time exploring the Vault 7 Wikileaks releases on the CIA and their Year Zero exploits this week. What a treasure trove with lots of implications! Listener Col Terry called in to remind us how serious this breach is..What do you think?  Enjoy..


Future News- Longevity with Parabiosis, Frankie Lee in Studio, Theranos Rises Again, Greg Panos on Siggraph VR

LIsten Now to Future News 8.02.2016

A modern take on an old tradition is in the news this week with what is known as Parabiosis, the process of using the blood of young persons to rejuvenate the lives of older individuals. There are a number of projects along these lines which explore to greater depths this week.  Also this week, Frankie Lee Slater as guest commentator and Gregory Panos returns with more from the Siggraph 2016 Computer Graphics and Animation event last week in Anaheim, CA.,.


Future News- Review of Maker Faire with VR pundit Greg Panos, Richard Cray, and Drone Racer Zoe Stumbaugh

Listen to Future News 5.24.2016

The KSCO studio was full today with visitors, all of whom participated in adding valuable comments to our most interesting topics.  All our guests had been at last weekend’s epic Bay Area Maker Faire, from which we drew content for much of the show. We also delved a bit into politics, given that this is a major election year, and after all, we are on talk radio.  For that segment we even got a call from Republican Jerry Law, running for a U.S. Senate position this year in California. 

For the last segment of the show we bring on Zoe Stumbaugh, who is the first woman to make the Drone Nationals this year!  We talk about the latest amazing track design, debuted at the Maker Faire, and the future of drone racing as a career path.  A very dynamic and exciting show this week, enjoy!
