Tomorrow Daily 053: Incredible multiscreen interaction from MIT's THAW project, and more

On today's show, we jump on the hype train for THAW, MIT's seamless multiscreen project, watch a 3D-printing robot get omnidirectional wheels, check out a drone that can be printed for just $800, and discuss what we know about Windows 9.

We don't know if we can stop marveling at MIT's new THAW project. Watching the demonstrator hover over a laptop screen with an iPhone, pick up an object, and move it to a different location (or manipulate the object) is surreal. It's one of the coolest things we've ever seen, and we already want it in all our video games.

We're also taking a look at a 3D-printing robot that's no longer constrained by its own proportions, and a drone from the University of Virginia that can be printed cheaply. Oh, and we take a look at what we know so far about Windows 9.
