DT correspondent Riley Winn once again joins us from E3, where he catches up with streamer DomPlays to ask him what he’s most excited for at E3, as well as how he got into streaming horror video games. DomPlays is represented by Fullscreen.

Alex Garden, chief executive officer and chairman of Zume, discusses the future of food processing and delivery, and how data is used to better match food production with demand.

Nibler then welcomes Paul Waby, rail systems director at Texas Central, to help break down high-speed rail technology, and what the future of the industry looks like, from Maglev to steel wheel.

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another Tech Briefs segment, where we round up this week’s biggest tech stories with Ken Yeung, technology editor at Flipboard.

Nibler then interviews Scott Wharton, vice president and general manager of the Video Collaboration Group at Logitech, about employees in open offices, and an approach to product development that meets employees’ collaborative and individual needs.

The news of the event being halted for the year comes from a tweet from Razer PR lead Will Powers. Powers stated that he received an email detailing E3 digital's cancellation before the ESA even put out an official statement. That tweet was later confirmed by various partners and press.
