Gesture-enabled touchpad fits on your thumbnail (Tomorrow Daily 164)

On today's show, Khail and Ashley discuss MIT's new mini touchpad and where you might use it, a learning project called zSpace that hopes to mix tech and education in a new way and the results of SpaceX's third attempt at making reusable rockets viable.

Happy Monday, citizens of the Internet! We're back today with a slew of crazy future tech stories to make your imaginations run wild; fortunately, everything you see on the show today is real and (hopefully someday) coming to a reality near you.

MIT's "NailO" prototype fits a tiny touchpad on your thumb, but don't worry, they think a commercial version will support artistic surfaces (so you can look stylish while subtly paging through Tinder with your thumb). We're also taking a look at an educational tool that combines augmented reality and 3D imaging to help kids learn subjects like science and history, plus we go over SpaceX's third attempt at a reusable rocket landing in the middle of the ocean.

Oh, and congratulations to viewer Neil, who sent in an ultrasound picture of his first baby! Our youngest superfan, obviously.
