Hey all,

Just wanted to let you guys know that if you haven't already checked ZombieTech out, there are a number of Prop enthusiasts that we've interviewed:

Roy Eltham (twice actually!):

Chris Savage:

Joe Grand:

and just released is Peter!

In general we get to talk to a lot of COOL people about their projects and we're hoping to get the opportunity to talk to some of you at the Expo!!

Also thought I should mention http://www.zombietech.tv/2012/07/26/zombie-tech-episode-047-dr-thomas-talbot/ <-- Invent-O-Doc on the forums. If you don't know him or would like to know more, he did a FANTASTIC job on the interview :)

How did I miss these the first time? Great stuff. I can't wait until Peter has his plasma tornado up and running, and singing Over the Rainbow.

Just an update and relevant to you guys who may follow these two:

Last week:

This week on ZombieTech we have Peter the Thinker again live and in studio! We get updates on the projects he’s been working on such as his propane electric hybrid golf cart, his battery-powered bike/scooter, solar powered boat, and plans for a diy segway as well as many other projects we talked about in our last interview with him! He’s also notorious for all of his last-minute hardware hacking such as getting an electric car to its destination when its battery died, jump-starting cars with unlikely items, and many more!


This week:

Jessica Uelmen is Engineering Manager at one of our favorite companies, Parallax Inc. We talk about how she got started in engineering and many many projects including Dweeb Den, Nerdy Show, Gazetteers, etextiles, and even about her getting her Masters in Engineering. Lots of fun tidbits!

Thanks :) Which ones have low audio and is it everyone's audio or just the guests?

I don't necessarily want to inundate the forums with updates on ZombieTech :p, but I thought this one would be of particular interest to those who are interested in the Space program:

Episode Link: http://www.zombietech.tv/2012/09/13/zombie-tech-episode-053-earle-kyle/

Earle Kyle is an aerospace engineer and physicist who helped design hardware in the Apollo manned moon mission spacecraft, the SR-71 Blackbird, the Phantom II fighter plane, the C-5A Galaxy Start Lifter, the Thor-Delta missile, Skylab Space station, bio-medical systems for the Space Shuttle, and telemetry data systems for the Atlantic Missile Range – to name a few! You’ll want to check out the rest of his LinkedIn page for EVERYTHING he’s had his hand in. But we had the honor of getting a chance to hear about what it was like as an engineer during the space race, and about his current work as well! We talk about NASA/JPL’s Solar Ambassador program as well as STEM schools and how Earle gets kids fired up about discovery, creation, and Space! Definitely not an interview to miss!

Hey everyone,

So tomorrow we're going to be talking to Rick Galinson (paintball gatling gun + special effects guy) - I wanted to see if you guys had any questions you wanted us to ask him in addition to ones we'll be coming up with? Let me know!

Hey all - just in case you were interested, our interview with Rick is up! It was a lot of fun getting to hear how he started, the behind the scenes of his projects, and in general, behind the scenes in the movies he worked on :)
