In this episode we are having an organic discussion starting with open source smartphone hardware and software to the future of open source and privacy. This was an interesting discussion moving naturally to the issues of privacy in today's internet and how open source could affect in the future.

During the summer we will have some hard time keeping the weekly release schedule, I hope that will not be a problem and maybe you will have time to catch up if you missed some episodes.

In this episode we are discussing the upcoming game Starbase from Frozenbyte with Artturi. He was missed in the podcast for a while and he has been working on the game for a while.

We are discussing a bit the technology behind the engine, how a game is developed and game design. Hopefully this will give some inside view into game development.

If you want to know more about the game you can wishlist it on steam and go to https://starbasegame.com/

In this episode we are discussing the year's E3 conference, which games interested us the most and the news in hardware (both GPU and CPU) annouced at the conference. There is no talk about consoles and many games were missing but we are planning a continuation episode with more discussion.

In this episode Juhana is finally back and we get to have another of the random discussions about different topics. A bit about the Chernobyl HBO series (go watch it), the robot vacuum-cleaner and the value of privacy. This is a topic that comes out here rather often because we apparently really care and, every time, we hope that people would also care more.

Finally for the real interesting stuff (at 28:00) we discuss a bit about the new 5 nm semiconductor manufactoring node that TSMC and Samsung are starting to produce. And with this comes a bit of future talk in the field.

Again I was left alone for this episodes and these are not easy to do without a proper discussion, the interest feedback is missing when speaking to a screen (at least my cat is here listening to me).

Anyway, this time I'm talking about some more EU project from railway network simulation to automatic maintenance and smart sleepers to automatic beer brewing technology with some new welding technology.

Hopefully this smaller episodes are not too painful to listen, we will try to go back to normal discussions from the next time!

In this episode I'm going through some results from a CORDIS results pack about nano-materials (Cordis website) while going a bit deeper into what Microfluidics is, some applications and roll-to-roll fabrication. The at the end a bit about printed electronics in connection with the roll manufacturing.

Microfluidics is a research field that focuses on small liquids amount and small hardware dimensions to work in laminar flow, this opens the possibilities for several applications in medical, chemical and more fields. The roll-to-roll production enables the cost of devices to be lower with high production capability.

To all the esteemed listeners,

We want to formally thank all of you for listening this podcast for so long. We finally reached the big milestone of 1 year of actual episodes and we are still planning on going. We will try to invite more and more interesting guests (while having easy access to professors in the university) and, hopefully, start the microfabrication series.

This episode was more for us since we are just having a random conversation among friends, we deserved after 1 year I think. If you actually get to the end let us know on Twitter, I'm curious to see how many get that far.

Again thanks and best regards,

STG podcasting team.

In this shorter episode we have a discussion about the articles found on the Research*eu magazine on nuclear power research in the European Union. The discussion starts from a general overview of the nuclear energy in Europe in both technical and political/feelings prospective and moves to the new research and the Generation 4 liquid metal cooled fast breeder reactor designs.

In this episode we have a very interesting discussion with Anna Fait from ETH Zurich (Twitter @AnnaFeit and http://annafeit.de) about her research on inputs methods and optimization of keyboard layouts in particular the research on the new French official layout (more info here and here the layout (in French) ).

The discussion is about all the new input solutions that are researched from better typing to VR and how the research is performed. The french layout is the best example of that, using algorithms and real data from people typing to analyze where all the special characters in a keyboard should be placed.

Sorry for the audio quality, we had some connection issues apparently and it is really hard to remove those clicks. I will try more and re-upload the audio if I manage to get it fixed.
