Engadget Podcast 389 - 3.21.14

Join us for an out-of-this-world episode with Joseph, @terrenceobrien and Ben (who's Skyping in from the land of blue skies and balmy weather). Experience Mars with Sony's Project Morpheus, hear Joseph's pitch for virtual reality installations at arcades around the country, and learn the truth about your pet cat -- spoiler alert: it's an alien. We've heard that robots are coming soon to a wrist near you courtesy of Google's new Android Wear platform, but is the wearable world ready for a smartSwatch? There's news, speculation and insight, but definitely no Virtual Boy in this week's edition of the Engadget Podcast.
