Nintendo Switch and Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild; LG Wallpaper OLED TV; SpaceX trip to the moon; Boston Dynamics; Pizza Hut Pie Top Shoe

Our latest weekly episode of Trends with Benefits features Adrien Warner, Caleb Denison, Brad Bourque and Greg Nibler.

  • Are you ready to buy a Nintendo Switch?: It's been years since they brought out a new console, but Nintendo is back with the innovative Switch. Will new games like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, be enough to persuade you to purchase one?

  • LG's Wallpaper OLED TV is simply amazing: Caleb Denison recently came back from San Francisco (albeit without his computer, story in the podcast) to get hands on time with LG's new line of televisions. The verdict is great and he gives us a layout of what to expect from the new line.

  • Are you ready to head to the moon with SpaceX?: Elon Musk continued the ambitious plans for SpaceX, announcing that two tourists will take a trip around the moon next year. The technology and vehicles to do so are still being tested. If you could afford it, would you be willing to trust them and take a ride?

  • Boston Dynamics nightmare robot: The incredibly talented folks at Boston Dynamic continue to amaze and terrify with their inventions. The latest one, called Handle, is truly a monumental creation. Also...it's horrifying.

  • Pizza, shoes and tech unite: Following Uber's Doritos breathalyzer bag from Super Bowl, Pizza Hut is entering the fray for the NCAA Tournament. A new set of shoes called "Pietops" will allow you to order a pizza to your location. Although a gimmick, are there actual uses for this kind of technology?
