TF-X flying car concept gets a fancy new design (Tomorrow Daily 213)

Khail and Ashley talk about the realities of flying cars, Forever 21's cool "Thread Screen" installation and how conservationists are using tech to help stop rhino poachers. #TDFlyCar

Flying cars seem like the type of thing everyone feels will herald an era like we saw in "The Jetsons," but Khail's not so sure. What kind of world will it really be when everyone is flying around in cars they barely know how to operate, without roads or other guidance to keep collisions from happening? All we're saying is that there's going to need to be a lot of new rules and regulations before everyone should be able to buy a flying car.

We're also showing off Forever 21's Thread Screen. It's a "screen" that's actually made of spools of thread, and you can submit your Instagram photos to be displayed on it. It's only around for one week, though, so get your submissions in soon -- and if you send one in of our show and it gets on the big screen, send us a video, won't you?

Lastly, conservationists in the UK are trying to tackle the serious issue of rhino poaching. Too many rhinos are killed every year for their horns, and a nonprofit is attempting to use GPS data, heart rate monitors and a small camera inserted into a rhino's horn to help thwart (and potentially prosecute) poachers. Maybe the threat of capture will stop these horrible people from killing this endangered species. Fingers crossed!
