[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the internet. Welcome to Tomorrow Daily the best talk show in the Universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda. And I'm Jeff Cannata and it is time for headlines. Fisher Price dropped a concept video of what they think playing with toys will be like in 2025. The video is a day in the life of a family and it takes place nine years from now. Since it's not too far in the future there's a lot of familiar ideas here, but they are a lot more sophisticated version of what we have now. Based on the video Fisher Price believes ProjectionTech an interact glass will be all the rage in the future. And 3D printing custom toys will become even more common place. I love this idea, I think that's a, I think this is very plausible. I like the idea of, what day after tomorrow. What might we be playing with? Yeah, it's almost like watching Children of Men, where it's just far enough in the future where we see a little taste of what we might actually experience instead of these kind of really wild 100 years in the future crazy concepts. Yeah. And you gotta think, there are, indeed, apartments working on a lot of this stuff. Very very true. Very true. Okay, so our next story is A company that is claiming to have the world's first robot that can climb stairs mechanically. Transcend Robotics already uses three body pieces connected by joints to climb up stair effortlessly. The robot can also carry a payload while it moves, has safeguards on board to keep it from rolling backwards during climbs And has self-positioning technology onboard to calculate the best maneuvers. Remote operation means [UNKNOWN] can be used to scout dangerous locations, but it's already being used in medical, mining, defense, and other industries. It's really cool to watch this thing climb stairs. Yeah, does it Will it take the groceries up the three flights up to the. Yes. High rise apartment that you might have. You got your fifth floor walk up in New York City, yeah I would love that. I want robo to get my groceries. Yeah, robo carry all my purchases from shopping today. I think that works really well.
