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!

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..
