This week in Moore's Lobby, our guest is Matthew Dominick—EE, Navy test pilot, and astronaut for NASA.
You'll hear Matthew and Dave hit on a slew of topics. What's the ultimate "double E airplane"? What makes touchscreen vs. button interface design so incredibly important in the cockpit of a fighter jet? What is WOM and why do we rely on it so much for education? And what makes Matthew describe part of his job as being a "translator"?
This episode delves into the complexities of moving towards RF-enabled devices, Matthew's "weird hobby" of writing software, the role of augmented reality in the coolest of wearables (i.e., fighter pilot helmets), and the challenges facing engineers designing technologies meant to function on the surface of the moon.
Also, toasters. (No, really. There's a surprising amount of talk about toasters.)
