Let's explore a Dali painting using VR (Tomorrow Daily 304)A virtual-reality exhibit featuring an interactive Dali painting, and a look at a drone with a special cage that makes it incredibly rugged.
[MUSIC] Greetings, citizens of the Internet. Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best [UNKNOWN] talk show in the known universe. I'm Jeff Cannata. And I'm Ashley Esqueda. You are watching one of our miniature episodes. We pitch real fast with three and a half minutes to five minutes of quick headlines and a phone talk for the day. And then on Thursday you can check back in because we are going to deep dive on some of the stories that we covered this week as well as have a guest that is going to be awesome and fun. Yes, an extravaganza if you will. The future tech>> And excitement. [LAUGH] All right time to hit the headlines. [MUSIC] Exploring a surreal painting is now possible, at least if you're into Salvador Dali. This past weekend Dali Museum opened its most recent exhibition Disney and Dali Architects of the Imagination. There's a special feature exhibit within the show, a virtual reality tour of one of Dali's paintings. Developers spent four months perfecting the five minute long experience called Dreams of Dali. Visitors use an Occulus rift to be transported inside a 360 degree render of the painting, bring Dauldy's art to life in a high tech way. Even better, now that the exhibit is open, if you have google cardboard or Samsung gear vr. You could experience it yourself right in your very own home, pretty cool. Which I will be doing [UNKNOWN]. Isn't it great how there's these super expensive high-end VR things, but also $20 Google Cardboard pretty much works with all of them, too. Yeah- Awesome. I totally love it, I mean, you can check it out whenever you want, wherever you want. It's the best. Okay, well, we're gonna go from virtual reality to drones, which seem to be [LAUGH] a theme this week. [LAUGH] So physically, drones that might help search and rescue efforts. Startup company Flyability took its Gimball drone over to the Zermatt glacier in the Swiss Alps to put it to a serious durability test. They flew the drone through a huge crevass, shooting video as they flew And running into the glacier's jagged walls as they went. There's a cage surrounding the gimble drone that translates impacts into rotational energy, so when it slams into a wall it just keeps on flying. The gimble's intended use is industrial inspection, but after watching this, I think there's definitely a case for search and rescue. Even better, less experienced pilots can use the gimble because of its durability, so finding people amidst rubble or in treacherous spots Would be possible. I love the idea that this thing can just crash into stuff and it just rotates right through it. I know, it just keeps on going. Can we get one of those for like my car, and everything else. Myself. Yeah, myself. A suit with a cage. Amazing. Hey, if you have any comments about the stories during the week, use our hashtag on Twitter, #HEYTD, just shout at us, we'll hear you. Yeah, shout at us.
