A Podcast that translates Geek into Regular Speak. Tech expert Brett Levy discusses cool tech, Virtual and Augmented Reality and more! 

Episode #029 - Techknowledgy – Start with the Consumer!

Would you give a finger or an eye to unlock your device?  Brett and Aryeh speak with Ben Osborne of Cortechs and Grant Hyland of KBR Digital about what our neighbours are doing techwise in New Zealand.

In this week’s show we will look at the #AppoftheWeek, #techNewz with a “z”, the #AandBSplitTest and speak to another awesome Guest.

  • The #AppoftheWeek is Tix – A great way to get last minute tickets at a good price
  • #Technewz with a Z – we chatted about some of the interesting tech stories going on.
  • #AandBSplitTest - looking at Fingerprint vs Facial for unlocking our devices – They not fool proof – we will just have to see which one becomes the mainstay moving forward.
  • In XR – special mention to Red Meat Games – Bring to Light Game and iFly for their VR inclusion on their indoor flying

The take away from this episode is that you can get great entertainment at a better price if you look around. Would you give a finger or an eye to unlock your device? You may have to one day! We live in global market so probably good to check what our neighbours are up to from time to time.


Three tips:

  • Saving money is always good
  • Security and body parts, interesting!
  • The Kiwis do more than just play really good Rugby!
