Show and Tell: Augmented Reality Model of the Moon

We check out Astroreality's Lunar Pro, a detailed model of the moon that works with a companion app to show some extra details through augmented reality. While the model itself is nicely made and finished, the software experience leaves much to be desired. It's a neat concept that disappoints with its execution.

Tested Mailbag: Mercury Spacesuit-Inspired Shoes

This week's mailbag isn't a mystery, and contains something that's blowing our minds. Clothing review site Heddels collaborated with shoemaker PF Flyers to design a unique pair of sneakers inspired by the spacesuits worn by Mercury Mission astronauts. They're honestly the coolest pair of shoes we've ever seen!

Find out more about the project to make these shoes here: https://www.heddels.com/2018/02/heddels-co-op-3-pf-flyers-mercury-american/

PROJECTIONS, Episode 38: Sprint Vector and In Death!

Jeremy and Norm review two new game releases. The first is Sprint Vector, the VR racing game that's like a mix between cross country skiing and Mario Kart--it's one of the more physically demanding VR games we've played. We also play a community recommendation: In Death, a rougelike we found both thrilling and rewarding.

Organizing a Stop-Motion Film Production at Aardman Animations

Adam Savage visits Aardman Animations, where the studio is in production for its new film Early Man. A stop-motion film production requires many departments to work together to film dozens of scenes concurrently--so how is all of this organized? In chatting with Early Man's first Assistant Director Ben Barrowman, Adam learns how a sprawling film production is kept on track for its filming deadlines!
