07. Q&A: Research Robotics vs. Industrial Robotics - What you should know.
In this episode of Learn Robotics with Liz, I answer the ultimate question: Which computer to buy for robotics and engineering? Find out my answer and more on today's episode! Listener Submitted Question: Hi Liz, thanks for doing this. I'm starting as a grad student in a robotics program soon in the hopes of a career change. I like the coding side more (robotics software engineer), just because I'm very rusty on the electrical part and I love coding. Do you have any suggestions in this field? Also would like to know how working in the automation field is like, which is probably different than working on cutting edge robotics. ~Natonion Submit your questions on YouTube or Instagram and you just might be featured on an upcoming episode.

02. Semiconductors, Electric Vehicles, and the Metaverse with Aaron Lee
In this episode of Learn Robotics with Liz, I chatted with my good friend and engineer, Aaron Lee. We spoke about current events in engineering and technology.  First, we talked about the current state of the Semiconductor Industry — chip shortages anyone? Bringing electronic manufacturing back to the U.S. is a wish for a lot of people and companies. Is *duplicating* a factory in Arizona the answer? Then, we talked about the nearly 800 hp 2022 Dodge Challenger and what electric vehicles mean for the truest of auto enthusiasts, gearheads, and the like. And with the rise of Electric Vehicles, where are we getting these batteries? Would you drive an Electric Sports Car or Wrangler? Finally, we wrap the show talking about Meta and what the "metaverse" means for future social lives, businesses, and innovation in the technology space. Questions we chat about in the episode: What is the implication of these technologies in society? Are cars really *cars* without a gas or diesel engine? How will social lives change with the introduction of Meta and virtual reality worlds? Articles from this episode: How Asia came to dominate chipmaking and what the U.S. wants to do about it 2022 Dodge Challenger soldiers on with minor updates It's not quite the metaverse, but Meta is launching its virtual world Learn Robotics with Liz is presented by Learn Robotics.  If you like the work I'm doing, consider supporting my work on LearnRobotics.org.
