Cobots, Gobots, and Twitter Bots

What do robots that work alongside people, cars that transform into other things, and government propaganda have in common? No, I’m asking you. I don’t know.

Cobots are built to work alongside people. “Hey, hand me that wrench!”, “Bleep bloop”.

Then, I always thought the Gobots were a pale imitation of the Transformers. Turns out that Gobots are the pale originators?

And finally, Twitter bots and are they all out to get us?

The Philadelphia Experiment: Episode 53

Did the military use secret advanced technology to render a navel destroyer invisible? Well, that’s what I heard. This week we look at the Philadelphia Experiment, where the story came from and where it’s going.

We also talk about a material made of nano-tubes that absorbs 99.9% of light, making it the darkest artificial material, and we talk about the delivery robots that we’ve been seeing around town.

Space Weed: Episode 48

A pound of marijuana is sent into space and then returns to earth. At first a PR stunt but now a business idea. Sometimes it’s easier to list off a bunch of questions. What happens when you send marijuana into space? What happens when a person smokes it? Will people buy space weed? What if aliens steal your space-stash?
