On today's show, we geek out over a comic book tattoo animated with the help of AR, discuss the HoloLens demos at Microsoft Build 2015, and admire the special new elevators at the One World Observatory in New York City. #TDTat
Night Terrors maps the layout of your home, then becomes an augmented reality game in which horrors attack.

Ashley and Khail check out Mini's new Augmented Vision glasses concept, Disney Research's new fabric 3D printer and a super creepy humanoid robot named Han. #TDCars
Mini showed off a pair of augmented reality glasses that not only enhances the world around us as pedestrians, but also makes navigation and safer maneuvering in your car way more high-tech. We just want to be able to see through our car doors and feel like we have superpowers, okay?
