Tech Tuesday: Make your Smart TV Smarter & 3D printers come to a retail store

On Air sign at the News 1130 studios

This week on News 1130 Radio in Vancouver, I talked about these items:

  • Roku Smart Stick: Roku is launching their new Smart Stick next month that will plug into a number of different Smart TVs currently on the market and add a bunch of new content options wirelessly. The Smart Stick looks like a thumb drive and contains wireless networking and streaming software to access their numerous online streaming services without adding extra settop boxes or cables to your TV. The software is easily updated as new services are offered. The expected cost will be around $100 and may be included with some new Smart TVs.(source)
  • MakerBot opens a retail store & launches a new 3d printer: New York based MakerBot Industries just opened one of the first retail stores offering 3D printers, supplies and printed items to the public in New York City. At the same time, they announced the Replicator 2 3D printer which comes fully assembled and ready to use in your home or office. This could be the start of many more retail operations for people to see 3D printing up close, purchase goods made on a 3D printer and even buy their own printers. (source)
