This week we’re donning our space-suits to explore the universe of Star Citizen, a technically-ambitious (not to mention beautiful) space simulator which is still in development.
We chat about the game, the technology and the vision behind it — a massive, multiplayer universe with planets, economies, resources and people.
Before we get to Star Citizen, we cover a range of exciting news stories, including IBM’s quantum computer, Passerine’s bird-inspired drone and advances in AI to detect the presence of viruses.
