AwesomeCast 272: These Are Not the Drones You Are Looking For

  • Thanks to @Optinvent for some additional details on last week’s ORA-X conversation. Check ‘em out on Kickstarter.

  • Because it’s our Halloween episode, we’re going to talk some costumes with Google’s Frightgeist site.

  • Facebook is unleashing universal search across its network.

  • Bing is a good mix of public and private enterprise. Chilla shares his thoughts.

  • OculusRift and Adawarp allows you to become a cuddly teddy bear.
