George Takei Finds Collaboration (and Robots) at the Heart of Boston Tech

Get ready for AARP tech explorer George Takei  to be everywhere at once this summer, or at least it may seem that way. This week, for example, he visited The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart  to talk about a new documentary: To Be Takei: A Star’s Trek for Life, Liberty and Love , opening in August after playing the film festival circuit. Not only that, Takei continues to use his social media clout to promote Allegiance,  a Broadway-bound musical about the Japanese American experience in World War II. He starred in the show during its successful tryout in San Diego.
Roaming Boston and nearby Cambridge, Mass., Takei has recently been visiting start-ups and tech pioneers to discover the magic sauce that has made the area such fertile ground for innovation. If you’re interested in the hot new arena of “maker spaces” or stunning advances in robotics, join him in this week’s video.
Takei’s Take will return to the home of the Red Sox next week, wrapping up his visit to the cradle of liberty (and technology).
