Ep. 08: Back to the Futurama Video
This week, Donald and Jasmine bask in the glory of an Eric Franklin-less Crave, ogling a glimpse of the future in the form of new holographic technology. Also on our radar at the moment: a new type of grill that goes behind your teeth, some bus stop distractions for our fellow San Franciscans, and super dangerous flaming gloves that no meth head should ever possess. And of course no show would be complete without some excitement over beer, in this case a super speedy bottom-filling beer dispensing system. Finally, we stuff our faces--both real and ceramic--with cookies, pizza, and a spectacular-looking torta.
Jasmine's (mostly) back from vacation, and already hates the iPhone 4. To balance out her blind rage for the as-yet released device, Eric and Donald tackle Crave stories ranging from monkey-controlled robots, laser drug injection, and a Lego printer that drives ladies wild (or not). Stick around for the end, and you may just see Darth Vader's cleavage.
On this week's Crave vodcast, we attempt to answer the pressing question of which one is creepier: a Barbie cleavage cam or machine-gun wielding security cam. Either way, a camera's gonna getcha. Also on tap is a wide array of robotic walking aids, from an even lazier version of the roller shoe to sweet bionic legs for the disabled and the military. Plus, Jasmine thinks a killer drone is cute, Donald geeks out on a Super Mario star tattoo, and Eric is just...Eric.
CNET's Donald Bell and Eric Franklin scour the 2011 Maker Faire in search of Crave-worthy tech -- preferably the stuff that shoots fire.
Jasmine picks up the slack on Donald's sick day and gets fab producer Jason Howell and "huge" CNET Labs editor Eric Franklin to cohost the latest Crave podcast. We scoured Crave to bring only the best gems, and this week, we came up with a luxurious $15K speaker from Bowers & Wilkes, some Twitter-friendly dairy cows, a gadget porn crackdown, and the latest Japanese auto innovation . Also, no Crave podcast would be complete without a little something gross to cap it off. Tune in to find out what.
With Jasmine out on vacation, Donald brings CNET Labs' Eric Franklin into the studio for an epic nerd session on audio quality measurements, including recent test data from the Zune HD and iPod Touch. We've got charts, folks!
What's the point of that hotrod computer without a sweet monitor to go with it? CNET's Tech Editor Eric Franklin offers tips on how to pick out the best monitor for you.
This week on Crave, Donald and Jasmine attempt to make due in the absence of the Eric Franklin, who should be awakening from his Nyquil-induced haze any moment now. The big news of the day is Apple's latest gadgets, which includes an iMac attack and the undeniably unique Apple Magic Trackpad. And of course, no Crave podcast would be complete without talk of robots and food...specifically one that makes food (sort of). Also, Japan develops some freaky-smart billboards, the military gets some super spectacular smart earplugs, and the police find a new non-fatal weapon. Finally, we soothe your eyes with some lovely 3D street art--no funky glasses required.
