Tomorrow Daily 036: Augmented reality social media, a cooperative robot swarm, and more

On today's show, we're talking about the new augmented reality social app Traces, Harvard's self-assembling Kilobots, and a setup that lets you drive a real car like a third-person game.

We kind of love the concept of Traces, a new social app that lets you leave things like music, tickets, texts, and other fun things inside a GPS-marked, augmented reality "bubble" for your friends to find via their devices. Also today, Harvard's Kilobots work together to create different shapes, and Tom Scott makes his friends drive an obstacle course.

That last one sounds pretty boring, until you realize he made them wear video goggles and forced them to "see" in a third-person perspective via a following drone. Then it's a little crazy.
