Tomorrow Daily 043: Time traveling with VR, smart cruise ships, and the Telephoto MegaFon

On today's show, we discuss using virtual reality as an illusion of time travel, check out Royal Carribbean's new "smartship," and ask why Fuji Xerox's new megaphone needs a sniper scope.

Would you use virtual reality to go back in time to correct something you thought you did wrong, if you thought it would make you feel better about it?

That's what researchers did to 32 participants, and the results indicate "time travel" via virtual reality might prove to be an effective therapy tool. We're pretty impressed doctors are finding more and more ways to utilize VR for medical use.

Also, we aren't really sure why we haven't been invited to sail on the "world's first smartship" (according to Royal Caribbean). Is it because we smell bad? It's because we smell bad, isn't it?
