Two areas of improvement for today’s virtual reality headsets are display resolution and field of view. Pimax, a VR company based out of Shanghai, are hoping to solve those with its 8K headset that it’s launching on Kickstarter. We go hands-on with their 8K prototype to see what game and text content look like under this display, and how immersion is improved with a 200-degree FOV. Here are our impressions and an interview with Pimax’s CEO.
We’re in the shop for this episode of Science in Progress, as Indre and Kishore dissect some brains and geek out about neuroanatomy.
Will we be able to finish the UCS Batman Tumbler set this week? It doesn’t matter, because we’ve had so much fun geeking out about miniatures and modelmaking with our guest this week. Thanks so much to Kayte for joining us and telling some awesome stories!
It’s here! The Tested team gathers to put together LEGO’s largest set ever: the new UCS Millennium Falcon! This set belongs to guest Tommy Williamson of Bricknerd, and we review the build and compare it to the previous UCS Falcon that was released 10 years ago. Turns out it’s a very different model, both inside and out.
For today’s One Day Build, we’ve partnered with DEWALT® to use their FLEXVOLT® tools to give Adam’s cave an upgrade. In fact, Adam is showing a part of his shop that we’ve never shown before: the bathroom! Adam revamps this corner of curiosities to make better use of its space, doing the build in situ!

As the end of the week gets closer, we’re questioning whether we can wrap up this build in time! Sean talks about a project making a miniature replica of the Mercury space program capsule, and Kayte reveals an obsession with the Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
Guest Kayte Sabicer talks about how she got into the modelmaking business, what kind of work you can find in minaitures industry, and some of her favorite on screen models. We’re making good progress on the Tumbler now!
