Google street view has finally come to the beautiful water canals of Venice Italy. Now you can virtually two were 265. Miles on -- in -- 114 miles on water taxis covering many of at least 117. Islands. We'll -- one of their trackers armed with Google's 33 pound backpack. That houses the spherical camera containing fifteen cameras that capture 360 degree panorama as locations all over the world. -- was doing a lot more on foot exploration with -- trackers these days including the Galapagos Islands even going as far as to use scuba divers to capture coral reefs and -- life.

In -- related clothing tech story a company called tell me care has invented a 3-D printed fabric they're calling cozy flights. The stretchy material is biodegradable and 3-D printed using afraid -- materials including natural rubber latex. Polymers and cotton fibers which combined to construct a pair of disposable underpants. We want stuff to what happened to him. The process takes less than three seconds and is fully automated. The husband wife team who invented the underpants believe we can produce up to ten million pairs of underpants a year. MIT's tangible media group that's created in form which allows -- user to be in two places at the same time well sort. Inform users to connect motion sensor to -- bodily movements and then re create them on a table of physical pixels. This allows someone to manipulate objects from the other end of an Internet connection. The pixels on the informed Kapler grid of 900 motorized pains me to have police history. They -- each extend -- to four inches from the surface and are powered by computer controlled linkages and actuators under the table. The Kinect sensor reads the human movement and years it on the plane pixels. Users can even pick up objects and connect -- re create the shape of that object on the pixel -- The moving pixels also have the ability to display projections for use with the graphs and other kinds of visual mediums. And -- scenic gets well soon as this looks really cool. Hey guys thanks for watching the show as always you can find all these news stories is cnet's crave -- -- -- dot cnet.com.
