GET YOUR OWN PROFESSOR EINSTEIN (“He’s Super-STEM-y”): https://professoreinstein.com/products/professor-einstein
INFO (“I’m the boss…I need the info” - quote courtesy of Dr. Evil):
Plus, we’re breaking down what the Professor can do and how his Stein-O-Matic app works. It’s like a How-To for robots and their human companions. Professor Einstein is super into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (that part is for your teachers and parents). He’s MeGa-PiPeRiFiC.
Hanson Robotics was founded by David Hanson. He used to be a sculptor and consultant for Walt Disney Imagineering. He’s taken his animatronic experience way beyond theme parks and into artificial intelligence. If you haven’t checked out their life-size robots, check out HansonRobotics.com (after you’ve watched this video of course)!

OK, you Guyz! THIS is probably our most popular blooper of all time! It’s my intro blooper and second interview with the legendary George Takei (aka Captain Sulu from Star Trek). It’s MeGa-fun and Entertaining! That’s why we’re pulling this one out of the 2013 Piper’s Picks Planetary Headquarters archives! It’s THAT funny!
All goes wrong from the get-go! When I tried to do my intro…well, YOU tell me what went wrong! 4 years later, I’m still not sure (and I don’t know if I ever will be). We eventually move on to talking about saving whales, saving turkeys, Tom Hanks, changing history, and voicing a computer (Majel Roddenberry would be so impressed)!
Oh, if you’re not sure about Free Birds (yeah, it sounds like an odd concept for a cartoon), it’s really good and much funnier than you’d ever think! put it on your Netflix list for Thanksgiving!
Let’s get into a little behind the scenes info! George Takei and his partner, Brad Altman are both really nice! Mr. Altman actually came up to me before this interview and said how much he and Mr. Takei liked my first interview from the Larry Crown premiere in 2011. That’s a HuMoNgOiD complement for me! You can see it (the interview, not the complement #teehee) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ebn0q3UT184
If you’re a fan of George Takei or interested in Asian-American history, definitely check out the PBS special George Takei: Growing Up Asian-American. It’s about the hardships that Mr. Takei experienced growing up in the United States. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/pioneers-of-television/video/george-takei-growing-up-asian-american/
