We visit the headquarters of Meta, the company making augmented reality glasses and already shipping their second product. The Meta 2 is a tethered HMD that can track and display holograms in any environment–we go hands-on with the developer kit and chat with Meta VP Ryan Pamplin about how their AR technology differs from the Hololens and other products. Plus, in-depth impressions!

As the team continues on the LEGO Ideas Labyrinth Maze, we realize that it was designed by none other than the incredibly talented Jason Allemann (aka JK Brickworks), who created the LEGO Automata Sisyphus!
For this year’s Silicon Valley Comic Con, Adam goes incognito in one of his favorite cosplays–Chewbacca! This upgraded Chewie is a bit different than the Wookiee costume he wore a few years back, with a new bandolier, bowcaster, and mask. Plus, Adam rigs up an animitronic C-3PO to wear on his back, complete with custom dialogue!
