Robots, Rockets & NASA, the new frontier of VR & AR with Marco Tempest
Virtual & Augmented Reality Podcast (VR & AR) - Field of View
In the very first installment of Accenture XR’s Field of View, we speak to renowned creative technologist at NASA JPL, Marco tempest. Your hosts, Nicola Rosa, European XR Lead, and Global Head of Immersive Learning at Accenture and Daniel Colaianni, Chief Executive of AIXR come together to explore the very real case studies of using both Virtual & Augmented reality to take the work NASA has been doing to all new heights.
JEFF McBRIDE (with special guests JEN ADAMS, MARCO TEMPEST, & GREG GLEASON)
Who Books That? with Harrison Greenbaum (Presented by the International Brotherhood of Magicians)
Harrison interviews the mystical and mystifying Jeff McBride and finds out how to perform as an opener for rock bands, why what's going on inside you affects the magic you that comes out of you, how to rehearse your whole show in the airport when your flight is delayed, surviving performances in a jungle in the dark when it's more than 100 degrees, and the secret to getting a magic mentor. With special guests Jen Adams, Marco Tempest, and Greg Gleason. Presented by the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
Marco Tempest on magic, engineered interactivity and the future of storytelling
Technology and science may seem the natural enemies of magic, but for Marco Tempest, who describes himself as a cyber-illusionist, they are his daily tools of trade. Magicians have a long history of deploying advanced technology to be ahead of the reality curve in order to fool their audiences. For Marco, that means experimenting with motion tracking, drones, augmented and virtual reality, projection mapping, gaze tracking, robotics and AI. When I visited him in his New York workshop, we spoke about the art of telling stories about the near future, open source collaboration, sandboxing emerging technologies, engineering interactivity and how the world’s magicians have kept a secret private archive of their tricks and what that might mean for crafting the future of experiences.
