26: Neato Frames: Mexican Coke, HawaiiBalls and Steve

Today we invited Neato Frames out to the NEW cabin in the Virginia woods to talk about all things drones, what it's like to bootstrap a business in such a competitive industry and where the world is going in terms of quad racing.

Nichy Zuhoski is the designer of the frames and also a bit of a mad drone scientist!  You can find him as @nichyneato on Instagram.

Justin (aka Steve) Skinner is the man behind the man and also the crazy enough to powerloop Jesus.  You can find him as @itwillbefun.fpv on Instagram or itwillbefun on YouTube.

Hardware Hacking and Insensitive Stereotypes

In this week's episode, we talk about hacking hardware.  We are also given a view into Sean's insensitive cultural stereotypes, but it's cool, he's rigging a hardware hack as a cure!

We would like to thank @tinyKittensHQ, via @antwatkins, for sponsoring this week's show.  If you're looking for a daily dose of cute that you can take home with you, @tinyKittensHQ is the place for you.  And for total cuteness overload, try their livestream!

Remus Lupin's "boggart" in Harry Potter on YouTube - You might be wondering why we're including this in the show notes.  The reason is simple, there are an enormous array of amazing things that can be made.  Our imaginations are only the limit.  Harry Potter, to a real degree, shows this off.  If you can imagine it, you can possibly make it.

Someone go make me a shapeshifting monster!

For instance, someone made a real life transformer!

Or, how about a bunch of robots playing soccer? WITH ANNOUNCERS!

Streaming and Why Mike Likes to Wear White Tights

In this week's episode, we discuss streaming, and how it is a truly ground breaking technology.  Not only has it made content on the internet available without having to download it first, but it is disrupting industries.

Sean goes on to discuss how he really, really wants to stream his operating system.  About that point, our stream goes down, which is great, and shows Sean that maybe we have a bit to go before we're ready to stream our OS.

Last, we'd like to thank Aram's Nails for sponsoring this week's show.  If you want the ultimate in nail health, Aram has got your back!
