Episode 37 - What's Trendy in Engineering?
This week Pete and Simon come back from a conference with renewed excitement for the trendy topics in engineering. With that in mind we set out to justify our categorization as a "tech news" podcast and talk about what is popular in engineering, and what that means for the future of consumer goods. We revisit our old friend the Internet of Things, talk about Elon Musk, and imagine a rosy future where no one has to own anything but we can still have all the best tech toys. We digress into a discussion of sports and logistics, then narrowly avoid a serious conversation about Star Trek. Finally, we make a concerted effort to wrap up in a meaningful way. Do we succeed? You'll just have to listen to find out!
