Win a Chance to Meet Me and Take Part in Filming for "SCI-FI Science: Physics of the Impossible" in New York City on July 16th

I'm nearly done filming a second season of "SCI-FI Science: Physics of the Impossible" on The Science Channel. In this exciting new series, I've identified 12 more familiar science-fiction movie, TV and literature notions and technologies. I've been explaining how we can build some of these SCI-FI ideas into science fact and—once again—I want to know what you think of my designs.


The next two episodes will be:

"How to Stop the Rise of the Machines" and "How to Defeat a Cyborg Army"

I'm inviting lucky winners of our competitions to the studio shoots where I will reveal my designs.

For a chance to be invited to the next reveal shoot in New York City, send an email to scifisciencecompetition@mkaku.org with your answers to the questions below.

In less than 250 words tell us:  

  • Should we be afraid of the Technological Singularity?
  • What could we do to stop computers taking over?
  • Is there any way to defeat a cyborg army?
  • If you were to create your own cyborg army, what capabilities would it have?

I will choose a handful of lucky sci-fi fans to take part in the filming. Please include your name, age and contact details. You must be able to travel to New York for the filming on Friday, July 16th!

Please do not enter if you are unable to make this date.

Winners will be contacted on July 10th via e-mail or telephone—so be sure to check both often!

Make sure to get your entries e-mailed to scifisciencecompetition@mkaku.org as quickly as possible!

Good luck!!!
