In this week’s @GamesAtWork_biz episode, the complete set of co-hosts (Michael, Andy & Michael) get back together to talk games, technology and more. Starting things off with an iOS 16 enhancement to show sports scores on the iPhone lock screen spins up a discussion about UX, and of course, not wanting to know live scores of a game that you intend to watch on delay later.

Then the team turns to a massively multiminifig version of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant built entirely out of LEGO in just nine days. Check out the show notes below for the article, and the video of this amazing build. Check out the illuminated light sabers. Andy notes that the London LEGO store has reclaimed the title for being the largest LEGO store on this planet.

Next up, is a story about VR representations of universities in the metaverse, and the co-hosts have a good conversation about the meaning of a digital twin. Then, following up on a continuing story about AI, a US federal circuit court confirms that an AI cannot be a patent author. Michael R remembers Accelerando by Charles Stross, and how patents feature in this sci-fi story. Sticking with the AI subject matter, the team then reflects on DALL-E2 with it’s basketball playing llamas, touches on search engines and wraps up with a squirrel robbing an avatar.

What metaversity might you want to apply to? Would you get a minifig with a “metauniversity” top? Drop us a line at @gamesatwork_biz and let us know!
