Comic book tattoo comes to life with AR, we want one (Tomorrow Daily 171)
Wow that was so intense.
I don't need to describe it.
OKay, world trade center observatory has an amazing elevator that we're going to tell you all about and a comic book creator gets pretty much the greatest tattoo of all time.
Greeting citizens of the internet.
Welcome to Tomorrow Daily.
The best geek talk show in the known universe.
I'm Ashley Equeda and joining me, as always, who's anonymous.
Oh, that's me.
I'm expecting you to be [UNKNOWN] in the event of
In case of an emergency.
It's Thursday, you know how Thursday's episodes go.
You have two exits in the back, two in the front, and two on the wings.
This is your Thursday throwaway.
[LAUGH] Thursday's throwaway Thursday.
It is, it is, like Super Hero Weekend.
Guardians of the Galaxy!
Super Hero Day was yesterday, which I don't observe stupid fake holidays so that people can celebrate on, like, Facebook and Twitter.
That's my [UNKNOWN] on Saturday.
It's, it's a rea holiday, though.
No, but that's real, like, that's an active thing.
But, not like Donut Day?
Not like, yeah, not like Popcorn Day.
It's like, come on.
National, National Genghis Day?
But, but, this weekend, not only the thing that you're into, but also-
It's Super Hero Weekend.
It's, it's Avengers Weekend.
We're getting into it.
But, before that, let's hit the headlines.
I have three tattoos, fun fact.
Lot of people don't know that.
How many of them are Nightmare Before Christmas?
The third one is not, Dia De Los Muertos theme..
I think the one in your leg, like, like takes up that much is.
Counts as like seven.
The calf sleeve
The calf sleeve is, I like to consider it one piece.
I like consider it one piece.
I have to tell you about
Solar I gotta tell you about this.
Modern Polaxis is a comic book that this guy kickstarted.
The creator's name is Sutu.
He kickstarted this comic book and it's sort of a mixed digital media comic book.
It's pretty cool.
So what you have is you have the comic book and then you have this app that is powered by Boom Core AR technology.
And as you go through you can actually like hover your camera over it and then the panels come to life which is pretty amazing, and there's like hidden messages and secret stuff that you wouldn't see unless you were using the actual app an everything.
So this character right here you're seeing right now, like that, he has his hands clawed up and stuff.
So that's what the comic book looks like.
Oh my God.
I want to read this.
Okay, so me too.
So this got kick started last year, but the point of this is is that the creator got an idea that maybe the images from the comic would also.
sort of come to life on other surfaces, namely, his own skin.
So, he got an exact image tattooed on his forearm, and it comes to life in the ad.
It's so amazing.
that's what we're seeing on the screen right now.
He put that up on Instagram.
It's a video.
Oh my god, that's the coolest tattoo ever!
I know, it's amazing!
I am stealing this idea, somehow.
Dude, okay I saw this and I let out a little scream cause I was so excited.
I wish my tattoos could come to life, but I was thinking about it Could you imagine?
With augmented reality, I'm sure there could be all kinds of uses for this.
Like you could have Disney say, oh we're gonna release this one piece of art that you could unlock.
Like, it would be living from this particular movie or whatever.
Like they could say, oh we're gonna release this cool Iron Man tattoo.
And if you get it, like or if you have it then it's AR.
People would I'm sure get tattoos of whatever [CROSSTALK]
I, I, I think, I think.
More glory there.
If you think about-
No, if you think about those little things that, like, Nintendo puts out, where you put a little character, and it's just like this weird IR code, and then you can just-
Pretty, pretty great.
I don't know why nobody, somebody has to have thought about this, but, like, this guy goes from his art-
From his comic book, and it's very specifically designed for his comic book to come to life, so this is a very particular app, and his
Basically the art is treating his arm as if it's a panel in the comic book, which is so freaking cool.
And it just, oh my God, it's amazing.
That makes me so happy.
Good on him.
And the, the story in the comic book is Modern Polaxis is the tale of a paranoid time traveler.
So I thought that would be, it's kind of, like, very futuristic.
Like, it's cool.
I, like, I just love all of it.
Everything about it, I like.
I can't wait, I can't wait.
Is, is, is, are all the issues out or what's the deal?
I'm not a hundred percent sure.
Okay [CROSSTALK] Sorry.
I want to know too much.
This, in particular, was kickstarted a year, like a year ago.
So it was last year it was kickstarted so so you'll have to check, again, Modern Polaxis is the name of it.
And so that brings us to our hashtag of the day, which is of course, #TDTAT.
What tattoo would you get and how would it animate?
That's, that is, I'm excited to hear your answers to this.
Okay, I got one.
My hair looks real, it looks real Thursday.
It looks so fluffy today.
It looks Thursday.
Yeah.>> All right.
What is it?
Is that it?
I'm not saying I would get an alien.
No, what I'd get is, I would get, you stay on this angle.
Go I would get a tattoo here and a tattoo here and they would be the devil and an angel.
So when you use IR you see like a devil and an angel on my shoulders, but they're like versions of me like a devil version of me and an angel version of me.
LIke in the Emperor's New Groove where Kronk has the different [UNKNOWN]
Anytime someone has to make a decision between something good and something bad and there's always like a little person that's like, yeah, Kale, do it-
Do the bad thing.
And then someone else going no,
I mean no Cam, don't do it.
I think, yeah, I think both of them down evil.
I think both of your's down evil.
They're like don't do it Kalen.
They're both Devils, yeah, [LAUGH]
Alright, what's your answer
I think I would get I really like the idea of getting a metroid ball, like Sam A Saran in a ball
And then when you put the ar over it she pops up and she shoots them.
That's also amazing.
I gotta be really cool.
Yeah, these are great.
Yeah, and then now it's like you get this really simple thing and people have no idea what it is until you like put a camera over it.
And than all of a sudden it's like Santa just jumps out of it and rah, rah, rah, kills a space pirate.
That's also really good, wow.
All right, yeah good, good choices
I thought that was a really fun story.
That's the hashtag of the day.
Tell me about Holes, Flinn
Okay, so let's just launch let's roll our little lower thirds and launch right into Broll because we have more visuals from Hololens, of course we know that this is Microsoft's new AR headset, I think earlier they promised coming out this year,
[LAUGH] We'll see about that.
But Microsoft Builds is happening right now.
So Microsoft has taken this opportunity to show up basically in real life what their AR can do.
So they had someone on stage using the AR headset the, the.
The hull, and, and then they had a camera that was outfitted with the ability to see what he was seeing.
So what did they show off?
Well, they showed off everything that they promised they would in the video, including your be able to watch a screen.
Enlarge that screen, and the screen will follow you.
You'll be able to have 3D renders of stuff,
Move around it in active
Interact with it, with it just by putting your finger in, in real space.
Like in the air?
No gloves or nothing.
That was proper english.
No gloves or nothing.
But so what's, what's, they announced a few more things including Windows
And those holographic programs.
So [INAUDIBLE] are gonna be able to make Windows 10 apps.
So this is all gonna run off Windows 10.
That was a big theme.
Windows 10 is gonna be like the ish.
Can we discuss this robot?
Because I need one.
So they, the got a, a
Real ro, they got a real robot.
And it ta like have ar ability.
And they made it so that the robot can sense the world around him.
All futuristic stuff.
This is crazy future tech.
I've seen a lot of people
If it works
come out of this, yeah.
Ive seen a lot of people come out of this.
Not with, oh, I think it would be really cool if it did this, but with, there is so many possibilities, I can't even pinpoint more.
That's been the general response.
It's like, there are so many possibilities, I, my brain just can't even work.
So yeah, so that's kind of like the big thing that they showed off.
I love how it was basically, because there are no, like
Microsoft says hollow lens works without a computer, a Smartphone.
Like, you don't have to plug it into anything.
It's just its own independent piece of technology that you can use.
Which, I think it'll very expensive, if that's the case.
But I liked how they are basically
Allowing you to have your entire desktop or your, your computer experience in your living room.
Like, he was walking around with the video and stuff but he also had, you know, like the little fishbowl with the weather in it.
And then if you walked over to his desk, his calendar was, the screen was sitting on his desk Like as a calendar.
We, we recommend you check out the video.
We have a couple up on CNET that are sparse, like parsed down versions.
That are like two or three minutes.
Good super [INAUDIBLE].
Just go watch it.
There's two of them.
One that shows off the robot.
And then they have another one that shows off how they use it in the home space.
I'd recommend watching the full length version so you can hear the annoying announcer give you the whole demo.
Get the whole demo, yeah.
But basically what we wanted to make sure that you knew.
At least the very Lee, like the little bit of it.
And saw some of it.
There's no no price yet.
No release date.
It's a gimme now.
And if Microsoft, if you could just bundle Holoend with that robot, that would be great.
That would be really great.
The next thing I'd love to hear from them are the apps that they're already working with.
So whether it be Netflix which is what we saw in the initial run.
Or Amazon or any.
They showed up Skype.
It's so Skype, they showed a video player, and they showed it's so dumb.
He's like, I don't call my friends enough.
So, I'm gonna put my, a picture of my friends on the wall with my Skype thing so I remember to call them all the time It was a little silly.
But I get where they're going with it.
Yeah, but it was, it was pretty neat.
Oh you, and don't forget, you can have a dog.
You can have a digi dog.
That just sits on the floor and no one else can see.
You creepy weirdo with your imaginary AR Holographic dog.
Yeah, I saw a lot of people that were like, cuz every single thing they showed off that you can expand it.
And everyone was like, everyone was like when they, when he turned and goes or this dog, and then everyone was like expand the dog, expand the dog.
Make it bigger.
Clifford the Big Red Dog comes to life, I love it.
Come here, Clifford, yeah.
Anyway, we're excited about Hollow lines and all the possibilities.
Obviously you can think of a lot of dystopian reasons why this might not be good.
Oh of course, terrible.
But right out of the bat, right out of the gate.
Two thumbs up, right, two thumbs up.
Shut up and take my money, that's, that's where I'm at.
Logan was gonna buy the, the Apple watch.
You gonna, would you get it HoloLens, Logan?
HoloLens all the way.
He's in for HoloLens.
Let me tell you about One World Trade Center, this is pretty amazing, and I think all major cities in the world should incorporate this somehow into their.
So, One World Trade Center has this amazing elevator, or I guess a series of elevators that I would like to tip my hat to.
I just saw this video maybe a couple of days ago.
So here it is, and you can see it starts underground, and it comes up and what's happening is, this is the history of Manhattan Island in 515 years.
In the ride from the bottom to the top of the One Wold Trade Center observatory you're going to see the history of Manhattan as it's evolved over 515 years.
Isn't that so cool.
Like I love this.
So, what they're doing is, there five special elevators that service the observatory and it's a 47 second panoramic time lapse, 500, over 500 years of Manhattan, history, Manhattan Island history, there are nine 75 inch monitors inside this elevator to make it look like you're in a glass elevator.
As you're, like, watching it.
So say, like, there's the building being constructed as you're getting up to the top floors, and then all of a sudden, you get to the top floor, 102, doors open, and boom, there you are, right at the observatory.
You're, like, right there.
So pretty awesome sort of, like, it, it's, obviously, things like this have been done.
Like, similar things, but not anything quite like this that I've seen.
And I just think that this is a, A, a really nice tribute to the city of New York.
Which is a great place for it obviously at One World Trade Center and it starts in the year 1500 and then just like, takes you all the way, takes you all the way from
That is really incredible.
I want every city to do this now.
Like, I want Like in, in London when you go to the Eye.
You have to like ride up.
Or if you go to the Observatory or whatever, you ride all the way up.
And that's like you can see it there too.
Like, I love this idea.
They do that there?
No, I, I want this in every major city.
Like I would love this.
You know the US Bank building in downtown LA?
You take the elevator there, like that's what I want to do, the history of, like all of Los Angeles being built out.
I think that would be so awesome.
Feel like several times where it's just on fire.
I know right, it's just up!
Here you go it's totally on fire.>> That is really, a really nice like, way to honor New York [CROSSTALK] and what that whole
What One World Trade Center is suppose to represent.
Building represents, yeah, I mean it's just really great.
It opens on, almost a month from today.
Well it's not even open yet.
The 29th of May, this is going to be like an observatory will open.
So I think the building is open, as far as I'm aware but I think the observatory, like, I'm not 100% sure you guys, I haven't been to that building and I haven't really kept tabs on it.
But as far as I'm aware it looks like either these elevators or the observatory itself will open May 29th.
So there you go.
Definitely check that out if you ever go to New York really great for tourism.
But those are our headlines for today.
Lot of fun stuff.
We will be right back with, of course, In To It, because it's Thursday.
We've got some really good stuff for that.
And then we have your user feedback for both.

But the free comic books that I thought were int, of interest were Doctor Who
The Fight Club sequel which is, I think a lot of people are very excited about.
[UNKNOWN] Marvel and Spider-man, and there's also another one where the Justice League has to team up, I think, with Scooby Doo, like that's a thing.
I like that.
I thought that was kind of cool.
Peanuts has a comic book coming out, so if you like Charlie Brown, like a little Charlie Brown, get a [UNKNOWN] and go get a free comic book.

That man is a monkey.
No, that, that monkey is just a monkey.
That monkey is a monkey.
He's carjacking that poor man.
That monkey it, it's, it's a criminal monkey.
He looks so angry.
So basically everyone is excited about Grand Theft Auto on PC because of mods.
Mods are like, like the bread and butter of a lot of PC games.
PC games, yeah.
So of course, GTA has the ability to be anything.
And so you can be right now they're very limited because they haven't cracked the whole thing.
So you can only be things that are already in the game.
So there's a monkey in the game, there's a pig in the game so you can be a rabbit, So the, we're just scratching the surface.
But we are scratching the surface.
This is insane!
This is amazing.
So that's what I'm excited about.
You're just really fun to watch, right?
Why is this monkey committing suicide all the time?
There, and, and.
Logan and I were looking through tons of vid, there's a pig.
Oh my god, what!
You can be a pig.
And you can shoot guns as a pig.
But, you know.
We're seeing it.
Oh my God, that's gross!
That is violent!
So anyway, yeah, that's what I'm excited about, that there will be more videos, obviously there's also the GTA movie maker which is amazing, so there's tons of those.
That will be my next week, no.
I'm sure, yeah it'll be next week into it.
I'll do other things, I promise.
So there you go, that's my end to it, this week.
Amazing, I'm really, I've, now I feel like I want to buy Grand Theft Auto Five for PC but [UNKNOWN] I don't think my computer will
Will run it at all.
We have to talk about user feedback cuz there was a lot, so let's get into that immediately.
So we saved CD bullets and CD suits for today cuz did Konami two days in a row.
So TD bullet about the darpa homing bullet.
They can kinda, aim at a target find it and change trajectory mid-air.
So, I saw after some more digging.
I did see that it is sends and like, it is an engine that responds to a computer on the rifle.
So that's how it
Fins and an engine.
Yeah, something like that.
Like fins and some sort of like a, you know, some sort of microprocessor or something like that.
Something that changes, helps the fins change direction.
Not a cheap bullet.
<> But still.
there's people, some people are estimating like, 10,000
dollars a bowl, which is crazy.
Some people wanna, whatever.
Some people have a lot of money.
So, I've a, who knows?
Anyway, Neil wrote in and said, I am military and this scares me.
Take away human expertise/error, anyone can kill without training or culpability.
That's exactly what I was saying, yeah.
That's exactly what we think.
Matt wrote in and tried to turn that frown upside down and said, I, if I was able to make anything be a homing device, I would choose the remote Or my phone, also cupid arrows heart heart heart.

The suit must come with gloves, hat, shoes, and socks.
I said, it comes with everything.
And go, go gadget arms.
Mitchell writes in and said, I'd like to have a suit with discreet and removable solar panels.
With some USB cables to charge my phone anywhere.
And then wrote in, because I've spent a lot of money on Mophie cases and external battery packs.
A suit that can do that would be awesome.

Dustin wrote in, said, let's get real.
I would have a suit that would somehow always provide you with hot coffee and donuts.
Do you remember when you were complaining about the fact that I wanted my car to make me hot drinks?
There we go.
I think everybody wants a nice drink.
I mean, if I could have a drink right now, I'd feel like, you know what?

Keeping it real.
And Abdulrman wrote and said, how about a suit that made up of nanomaterial that could change color (looking rainbow) and the second feature is signal booster.

There was a lot of people in the You Tube comments, that they, pretty much, a lot of them had the same answer.
Which is, that they wanted a, they wanted pants or a suit that charges your phone.
And, I responded to one and said that would be really great
Not only because you're charging your phone, but you have to have, you can get smaller batteries now because you won't require a long battery life.
Your phone is smaller, and you charge your phone all the time.
You won't need that yeah.
You're charging your phone all the time.
If you're not sitting down all the time.
have your pants or your jacket made of Chi charging material so you don't have to plug it, there's not plugs or anything.
Where does the energy come from?
Kinetic energy as you're walking about.
That's what I'm--

Well that will make you get up.
YOu're welcome, with your conducting powering --
So if got a call in like five minutes you gotta go for a run.
Yeah, bring zoomie or a power suit.
Am I right?
That's a terrible joke and Kel's going to hit me.
Time for a phonetograph for the day.
I will not file that joke.
Cristian also wrote in and sent us a picture.
He sent this in from his iPhone 5s.
He said hi, I'm a Spanish guy living in the UK and I watch your show every day.
This is a picture of my seven month old greyhound at a park in southeast London, taken with my iPhone 5s.
Thank you and the people behind the cameras for such a nice and entertaining show.
Look at that dog.
What a cute little dog.
I love a greyhound, as you well know.
That's why you picked this.
Here's the thing, though.
No, I picked this for the exact reason of, I love when people send in pictures of their pets and don't name them so that we can name them.
No, this is actually Christian.
Oh, it's a selfie.
Yes, it's a selfie.
He set it up, Christian bought, went out and bought a phone with his, he got bones
