We scream, you scream, we all scream for slow-melt ice cream (Tomorrow Daily 237)

Ashley and Khail get excited about the possibility of slow-melting ice cream and discuss a non-profit company offering VR experiences for special needs kids. And they show off Land Rover's new "Transparent Trailer" prototype.

We got super excited when we heard about the University of Edinburgh's discovery of a protein that could herald an age of slow-melt ice cream. Scottish scientists just became our favorite scientists of all time, even though we might have to wait up to five years to see ice cream using this naturally occurring protein hit freezer shelves at our local grocery store.

There's a company based in Las Vegas called VR Kids, and it's using Oculus Rift headsets and specialized experiences to help children with special needs. Whether it's to lower anxiety or simply offer a positive experience, this non-profit is dedicated to using new technology to help the families that need it. And for that, we're impressed.

Land Rover is also in the news this week, as it unveiled the "Transparent Trailer," a prototype setup that makes it easier to haul trailers behind your vehicle. How? By vanishing the trailer itself as you drive. The system monitors cargo during your trip using the cameras on board the Land Rover, a pressure-sensitive mat and a wireless camera set up inside the trailer.
