Activists use human holograms to protest, and you can get involved (Tomorrow Daily 162)

On today's show, Ashley and Khail check out a Spanish hologram protest, a stop-motion animated short where every frame is 3D-printed and a new patent from Boeing that might help you sleep better on long flights.

Wow, we can't believe protesters in Spain are appearing via hologram to express their outrage at new laws prohibiting assembly in front of government buildings, and people can participate simply by uploading an image to the organization's website. It's pretty impressive, but we're a little concerned about how your image might be used in the future. Can these organizations make you appear in future rallies, since you've uploaded your image and given them permission to use it?

There's also a gorgeous stop-motion animation made entirely of 3D-printed frames on today's show, and a Boeing patent that might help you sleep better on a flight (but look a little ridiculous while doing it).
