About This Show
We (Adam & Brian) are obsessed with the spot where modern science meets philosophy. As proud wearers of lifetime nerd badges, we have found this to be the place where the most interesting questions are both formulated and discussed.
There are some common themes throughout Zengineering, but we've uncovered a shared personal pursuit of this question: How can we build our mental model of the world so it can inform and guide our actions in positive ways? We do our best to share this exploration.
We discuss lots of tech, lots of science, and go on lots of random tangents, but we always try to bring it back to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.

Howdy, Zengineers. Welcome to our second episode on Virtual Reality. We start this episode by examining the five traditional senses (evolutionary technologies?) that our bodies have in the “Real World.” From there its a wild ride through perception and experience as we dive into the digital technologies behind modern VR that attempt to convince your mind that VR is not V at all! Our recent experiences with the HTC Vive have left us absolutely floored by the near fully immersive Virtual Reality space of today. This episode gets pretty deep by the end, swimming into the ether that surrounds whatever time and space actually are. Damn. VR is spicy. It captures many of the central themes of Zengineering Podcast. Enjoy it! BTW, this is a followup to Episode 34: On Virtual Reality (our first impressions with modern VR).

Quite Mind Bending
Great podcast with quite quirky and interesting hosts. Love the paths they take to find the purpose and meaning behind modern tech.
