July 14, 2020
Hosted by Jose Negron
How exciting is to see two or three robots battle in the same arena? You begin to understand the sheer power brought to the forefront by the competitor’s selection of current technology solutions. BattleBots® began it's 8th season this May, 2018 on the Discovery Channel and Science. The American robot combat television series attracts competitors to design and operate remote-controlled armed and armored machines designed to fight in a combat elimination tournament. BattleBots® is now seen in more than 150 countries. That means robotic combat fans across the globe can enjoy the world’s largest, and only professional, robot fighting sport on their screens. T3 has the privilege to discuss the evolution of the fighting robots with co-creator and competitor, Trey Roski. Bot fans, this is your show, to know more about the fighting robots. Join us this July 17 at 9am PST to discover the technologies and innovations that has continued to make the fighting robots a successful television show.
Today, Tomorrow’s Technologies
Tuesday at 9 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
Today, Tomorrow’s Technologies (T3) enables our scientists, engineers and innovators to establish a daily dialogue with a non-techy listener. This engagement will expand our understanding of how technology can impact our daily lives. The goal is to simplify, avoid the tech mystery and encourage the study or participation in these new disciplines. T3 benefits will answer the following questions:
a. What are the positive or negative impacts in the new technology?
b. When can these technologies impact our daily routine?
c. How can society benefit from these technologies?
T3 will cover a variety of engineering, scientific and future technologies. Topics include autonomous vehicles, disruptive products, cyber technologies, smart homes/devices, unmanned aerial vehicles, smart phone, now what?, space exploration/activities, electric technologies, energy/alternate energy, tech government vs commercial, technology in high schools, future robots, and the next inventions.
