🎙️ 35: Computers Without Screens, Mercedes Fingerprint Payments and Football Shirts Over Tower Bridge
Rick Huckstep and Shaun Weston discuss the future of computing without screens and keyboards. Where personalised AI is all knowing, all sensing and invisible.
🎙️ The Big Tech Little Tech Podcast
In the last 30 years, the power of a personal computer has increased 10 million fold, and yet screens and keyboards are remarkably unchanged. Of course, we have 4k screens to replace the old green screens, but essentially the way we interact with computers hasn’t changed much.
With the Internet of Things, ambient computing and smart glasses, all powered by personalised artificial intelligence, things are about to change. In this week’s show, Shaun and Rick make sense of it all.
For tech of the week, Shaun leads with the Nike-Chelsea FC promo that uses VFX tech to show a football shirt draped over Tower Bridge in London. Rick’s tech story is about Mercedes Benz turning the car into a digital payment device, paying for petrol with only a fingerprint on the steering wheel.
Plus the news and some AI joke telling, episode 35 takes a not so serious look at the seriousness of tech. We hope you enjoy the show.
