Trends With Benefits


Nov 20, 2015

Today we cover 55k Seinhauser Headphones, Vudu 4k Streaming TV, Bio-Printed Organs, Brain Implants & Sous-Vide Turkey.

After discussing the virtues of Sous-Vide Turkey, Ryan let's us know about his trip to LA. He was there to check out the new $55,000 Morpheus headphones from Sennheiser. No, we probably won't know anyone that will actually own them. However, the technology involved could eventually make it's way into something a little more affordable.

The online world of streaming television is constantly evolving and VUDU is the latest to make a splash. They will be offering 4K UHD titles in Dolby Atmos surround with Dolby Vision HDR. 

NBC also makes a move for streaming with Seeso. Seeso will stream classic NBC comedies like The Office, as well as standup specials and sketch comedy series such as Kids In The Hall.

Bio-printing technology may have taken a leap forward, with a Russian firm called 3D Bioprinting Solutions. They claim to have created a thyroid gland for a mouse that actually worked. This, of course,leads to a discussion of the possible "printing" capabilities that could be on the horizon.

Neurologist Phil Kennedy is known as the "father of the cyborg". He took that to heart, by traveling to Belize and having an electrode implanted into his brain! Caleb let's us know that you can apparently get away with a lot in Belize.

Finally, Star Wars, Star Wars, Star Wars! You can't avoid the commercials, video games, product placements, etc. Even for the hardcore fan though, is it getting to be a bit much?

Today's episode features Drew Prindle, Ryan Waniata, Caleb Denison and Greg Nibler.
