Topics: Life-extension related research from Stanford University; Microsoft's new HoloLens eyeglass computer which is an improvement on Google Glass in that it's a full headup display instead of just a little image in the corner of your field of vision; and the differences between normal cells and cancer cells. I also talk about the movie Guardians of the Galaxy, and the TV shows Agents of Shield and How the States got their shape.
Life-extension oriented past episodes of The Future And You which are mentioned in this episode include the July 18, 2012 episode which contains a full explanation of the final results of my "TA-65 Evaluation Project," in which my mother and I took TA-65 for six months.
For those who want to know more about TA-65, I've interviewed the president of the company that developed and sells it, Noel Patton. He is in three episodes. The first was when I was introduced to him at the Singularity Summit in NYC. That's in the Nov. 4, 2009 episode. A couple of years later I interviewed him by Skype. That interview was much longer and provided a more thorough treatment of the process. I split it into two episodes: April 20 and 27 of 2011.
Hosted by Stephen Euin Cobb, this is the February 4, 2015 episode of The Future And You. [Running time: 39 minutes] This monologue was recorded on February 1, 2015 using the free Voice Recorder app on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone.
