Plus, updates on Jenkintown 150 events, Chrissie's yoga studio, and the story of how a pallet of floor tiles destroyed Steve's shoulder. It's a short and sweet episode.

#135: Exploring Vision Pro With Kotaro Fujita
The Vision Pro has officially launched and who better to discuss it and the new "spatial computing" era than friend of the pod, Kotaro Fujita. In this episode we attempt to answer two important questions: What is Vision Pro and What can you do with it? We discuss what it's like to use the product, what software will be available at launch, and what new kinds of experiences early adopters may be able to try out. We also explore whether Vision Pro and devices like it could lead to even more device-centric isolation and the special parenting concerns that come with yet another digital distraction in a developing child's life. We also speculate out loud about how "AI" tools and "spatial computing" may complement each other in future devices. Near the end, we go on some amusing tangents describing the experiences of explaining to kids what life was like in the "old days" of home phones and Blockbuster video. There are some great insights in this episode for anyone wondering what all the Vision Pro excitement is about. For a a more technical discussion with Kotaro about Vision Pro from a developer's perspective, check out episode #58 of the Side Project Spotlight podcast when it is released. Links below!

#131: How to Survive an Alien Invasion
The PIC saw some UFOs! Really! After discussing the lights in the sky and since Steve can't stop thinking about the Hulu movie, "No One Will Save You," he thought it would be fun to try to poorly explain the plot to Chrissie in order to learn some tips for surviving the apparently imminent alien invasion of Jenkintown. Along the way, Steve kind of reviews the film, but mostly it's just Chrissie being confused while Steve rants and raves and it's all pretty entertaining (hopefully)! The movie WILL BE SPOILED!
