Collaboration, even between student teams is a huge part of the school. In contrast, Marina shares that her team’s client was on the other side of the world communicating voice-only through Skype.
Since Marina never met the voice on the line Armin wonders, could the client be the Inspector Gadget’s nemesis?

We discuss the Oculus Rift and substituting a virtual reality for, well reality.
Is the touch screen a good interface? It’s not exactly a tool.
Armin is a spy and has no fingerprints which made it difficult for him to take the MCAT.
Arturo chimes in from the chat room to mention that USB seems to be disappearing as well.
