Big Tech Little Tech

Dec 15 2023 • 30 mins

In this episode of Big Tech Little Tech, Rick Huckstep and Shaun Weston present the last episode of a tech-packed 2023. As the festive season approaches, a discussion about mega projects takes centre stage, with Saudi Arabia's ambitious Neom project first on the list. The Boring Company’s Tesla tunnel in Las Vegas is next, followed by the Samsung Semiconductor Factory in Texas, and the soaring Merdeka 118 skyscraper in Kuala Lumpur. Rick wraps up this mega roundup with a brief synopsis of the Chūō Shinkansen maglev railway line in Japan.

Also in the show, transparent wood, Archax nails the Gundam look, porn and face scanning, Spanish Christmas treats, and Germany's interpretation of an e-ticket.
