Tomorrow Daily 126: 3D-printed solar car, Gran Turismo gamers win a real-life race and more

On today's show, we check out a solar-powered car with over 150 3D-printed parts, discuss two gamers who went from playing Gran Turismo to winning an actual race and watch a robot with impressive dexterity craft a balloon animal.

Happy Monday, everyone. We're back with a slew of wacky tech tales to discuss today, including a robot that makes you a balloon animal. Sure, it's a simple fish shape, but try not to judge, because it's a robot that makes balloon animals, for crying out loud.

We're also blown away by the fact that gamers who play Gran Turismo can get tapped to race in real life; even crazier than that, the two gamers we're talking about on today's show? They actually won the race they entered, and another former Gran Turismo aficionado is entering 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. Did we mention Gran Turismo Academy winners get a $1 million contract for real-life racing? Yeah. That's crazy.
