Episode 67 Trends for July 11-24 Pokemon Go, Mobile & Online Learning, and 3D Printing Security Issues
July 25, 2016 § 1 Comment
We discuss the trends and issues we observed during the weeks of July 11-24 as we flipped resources into our Flipboard magazine (http://bit.ly/trendsandissues). We discuss three trends. The first is the return of VR and AR–specifically augmented reality with the popularity of Pokemon Go. The second trend was online learning and mobile learning. The third trend was 3D printing. A number of resources discussed applications of 3D printing, but the major story-line was security issues related to 3D printing.
We have three recommended readings.
