On The New Screen Savers recorded on Saturday, August 18, 2018, with Leo Laporte and Alex Lindsay:

  • RealWear co-founder and CEO Andy Lowery show us their rugged, hands-free, and head-mounted Android computers, the HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1, that are designed for heavy industry.
  • Autonomous security robot Knightscope K5 patrols TWiT Studio as we speak to co-founder and Chief Client Officer Stacy Dean Stephens about how they're eyeing to cut America’s trillion-dollar crime problem in half.
  • Fortnite is now on Android, but Epic Games chose to bypass the Google Play Store and to install it you need to allow 'unknown sources.' Jason Howell explains how and what this means for your Android device.
  • Speaking of Fortnite, looking to bring down your ping time? Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ reviews of the NETGEAR XR500 Nighthawk Pro Router made specifically for gaming. 
  • Apple and Blackmagic Design collaborated on an eGPU to pair with the new MacBook Pro, but that's not the only option if you're looking for a boost. Razer has their Core X which also works with Macs. We put the two head-to-head.
