From the Desk of Doctor Geek

Dr. Scott Viguié (a.k.a. Doctor Geek) holds two doctorate degrees and is an archaeologist, attorney, actor and author. Before his wife will permit him to go back to graduate school, yet again, he will have to promise to move on to something that starts with a "B". As luck would have it, Scott is also the first bionic man. Well, ... not exactly.

In reality, Scott was one of the first to undergo extensive orthopedic surgery to compensate for cerebral palsy. While these cutting edge techniques did in fact grant him the ability to walk, making him better ... stronger ... faster, his new abilities did not in fact come with the cool sound effects. S o began a lifelong obsession with science, technology, and the science fiction that inspires them.

Scott's love of all things science fiction and fantasy can be heard on various podcasts, including Articles of the Shadow Proclamation, Earth Station One, and Earth Station Who. Throughout the year, Scott travels the convention circuit, appearing at such conventions as Dragon*con, Time Lord Fest, and TimeGate, where he can be seen participating in Doctor Who related panels and speaking on such topics as "The Archaeology of Stargate".

Scott established Doctor Geek's Laboratory and Doctor Geek's Science Fair in the hope that it would encourage a rekindled sense of optimism for the future. That it would bring about enthusiasm for innovation. That it would bring the fictional world of tomorrow, one step closer to today.

Scott is also a consultant for the Science & Entertaiment Exchange, a volunteer network based out of Los Angles that connects productions with experts who can add a little science to the fiction.

Happy Halloween everyone!  We have quite the treat in store for you.

The investigation into Our Companion the Robot concludes.  Robot helicopters are here, can Skynet be far behind?  Meanwhile Dr. Geek must face Professor Pedantic in a battle of the labs.  Little do they know the future is at stake.

Back in Episode 3 we brought you an in depth discussion of Terrafugia’s Transition.  Now we are proud to update that investigation with news that the world’s first street legal aircraft is set to enter the market in 2015.

K9 may be The Doctor’s most loyal companion, but working within the limitations of what amounted to a glorified, disguised remote controlled toy car, was challenging at best. Apparently the people who designed K9 to function only in the most ideal of studio controlled conditions missed the memo that mandated that nearly every other episode of Doctor Who would be filmed in a quarry. There was just no way K9 could cope with all those obstacles, let alone deal with a Dalek at the same time. But fear not, a mobile robot animal is in development.
Boston Dynamics has developed WildCat. WildCat is capable of bounding, and galloping at speeds of up to 16mph.

Claire and I had a great time at yesterday’s Osceola Fan Faire.

There was some really smart kids in the audience that made the event extra special.
