This week I’ve got another Apple TV+ show that’s past it’s cultural moment. For All Mankind is good! In case you didn’t know: it’s an alt-history show that posits a world where the Soviets beat the US to the moon. It’s bit of a juicy soap opera and certainly requires some suspension of disbelief as the seasons progress, but it’s also full of cool space stuff. Season 3 has just started, so you’ve got a back catalog to catch up on.

I stumbled on an interview with Kenji Tosaki, a hardware designer at SEGA in the 90s who was in the center of a lot of interesting tech, including the Saturn analog controller, the Virtua Cop light gun, and a VR headset prototype. It was interesting to see how forward-looking they were - they prototyped something very similar to the Wii remote about 10 years before the Wii - but also how few of their experiments reached commercialization.
