Spinning Kitty Box Of Death | AwesomeCast 400

June 13th, 2018

This week’s episode brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Alex Kahrs Design & Media, and Dark Forge Studios!
It’s hard to believe it’s been 8 years since we picked up our microphones and video cameras and started this podcasting about tech thing. For the occasion, we’ve got Mike Pound, Chilla, Sorg, and Katie in studio to talk about a few things:

Shout out to Rob de la Cretaz. We miss you, buddy. Happy Podcast Birthday!
Chilla (physically) stole Sorg’s Awesome Thing of the Week – his Wyze security cam.
Katie is sharing an awesome luminary from Legendary Luminaries as her Awesome Thing of the Week.
Uncle Crappy’s Awesome Thing of the Week is the World Cup presence on Google.
BTW: The official soccer ball for the World Cup has some tech integration.
Amanda is sharing her Awesome Thing of the Week – the Impossible Ball and the fun tech integration this little soccer(ish)ball has.
Sorg must be holding a grudge against Chilla – he skipped over his Awesome Thing of the Week! (Just kidding. We’re talking about Fortnite.)
Fortnite on Nintendo Switch does have some issues that are angering some Sony users.
Brian has joined the VR age with his discount cardboard!
Microsoft sunk their recent data center – into the ocean – to help with cooling.
Speaking of Fortnite, it’s opening new doors for marketing opportunities.
Katie is super excited about iPhone tongue tracking for animojis and memojis.
OH: I’m not going to do anything dangerous. I just want to stick my tongue out!
Let’s make a giant spinning litter box – AND GIVE IT EARS!
Sorg is sharing some gaming upgrades – thanks to some thrifty finds.
Sorg thought the Fire TV Cube was an April Fools Day joke at first!
The Steam store will accept anything that isn’t illegal or trolling thanks to Valve’s new policy.
And, we devolve to reminiscing about where we all were 8 years ago…other than podcasting here.
After the show remember to:
