Although they started with good intentions the guys had a hell of a time staying on topic in this episode about Raspberry Pi computers and all of their many uses. Come join the SimGeeks crew for an introduction to Raspberry Pi and an overview of some simulation (and video gaming) related projects. If nothing else this episode may inspire you to find your own RPi powered solutions!

You read that correctly! IMSH is free to all SSH members who do not require CEUs and its only $250 for members who are looking for an inexpensive way to build up their education hours.

Not a member? No problem, there are two options for registering that include an annual membership at a discounted rate so its $150 for membership and conference registration if you don't need the hours and $400 if you need the certificates to prove you attended!

There's a bit more information in this super short 7-ish minute announcement so fire it up and listen to this one while stuck in line at the coffee shop.

Have you ever wished you could just make a body part for use as a task trainer or prop? Do you sometimes get frustrated with the high cost of consumables and replacement parts in simulation? INTRODUCING... LIFECASTING! The answer to (almost) all of your anatomical part envy! Just prepare the part you wish to recreate, add these simple ingredients, support it as necessary and WALLA you'll be cranking out arms, legs, faces and even entire torsos in no time!


The guys are back to share their love of making anatomical models and task trainers by using life casting to copy body parts from living humans. This episode will get you started with a basic shopping list, tips and tricks for success, and advice on how to do it all safely!

And we now return to our regularly scheduled content.... This week on the SimGeeks Podcast the guys debate whether or not allowing the manikin to die in a simulation is an acceptable practice... but wait there is more! The one and only Ed Rovera joins the cast to play moderator and occasionally drop some hardcore truth bombs about death in simulation... It wouldn't be a SimGeeks episode without going off topic once (or four times) so fill up your popcorn and plastic cups, grab your ringside seats and join us for another fun filled hour of SimGeeks Rock-em Sock-em nonsense!

Building on last week's Moulage Basics the guys start into the basics of using silicone for prosthetics and task trainers. This episode will take you from learning what silicone is and what types are available through to where to get it, how to start using it and even how to paint it. 

Silicone will be another topic that comes up again and again so if you have a specific question you'd like us to answer please hit us up on social email or through the Podbean app!
