Viewing Apple Spatial Video without a Vision Pro? Zappar ZapBox
Zapbox is the world’s most affordable smartphone-powered mixed reality headset and the first to support viewing spatial video created on the iPhone 15 Pro & Pro Max.
In this podcast I speak with Google Customer Engineering Manager Steve Lujan and Google Enterprise Architect Daniel Liu about real-world applications of Google’s various established AI products/services such as Document AI, Vision AI, and Contact Center AI. They also discuss the Google Gemini general model AI that launched just a day before this podcast was recorded (launch date = Dec. 6, 2023).
Note: During the podcast I (Todd) said that Google Bard was reporting that Gemini was not available for me yet. However, after post-processing the audio for this podcast, I tried again and was told:
Google Gemini is already available for Google Bard!
As of December 7, 2023, you can access a specifically tuned version of Gemini Pro within Bard.
I’m joined by guest co-host and frequent guest panelist Sven Johannsen for this podcast. We discussed some of our favorite 2023 gadgets as well as a few disappointments. We start, however, with a few other items.
Steven Hughes, Sven Johannsen, Todd Ogasawara, & Jon Westfall
Jon Westfall and I are joined by frequent guest panelists Steven Hughes and Sven Johannsen for this podcast. Note that (roughly) the first half of the podcast was recorded using Adobe Podcast Studio beta. We encountered a technical issue at that point and switched to using Microsoft Teams and Rouge Amoeba Audio Hijack to record the second half.

In this mini-podcast Todd Ogasawara is joined by Philip Mow (Phil) and Dr. James Young (Jim) to test the SPKPAL USB-C microphone in a Greek Marina restaurant.
Audio recorded directly from the mic to an iPhone 15 Pro Max using the Just Press Record app. The audio volume recorded using the SPKPAL mic was a little low. However, the combination of Adobe Podcast Enhance service and Audacity corrected this in post-production. The first minute of the podcast was recorded using the iPhone 15 Pro Max built-in microphone. The remainder of the podcast was recorded using the SPKPAL micorphone.
The discussion topics focused on Jim’s post-retirement interests of robotics and UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).
