We're back, and Khail finally got that gaping hole in his smile fixed thanks to a 3D-printed implant. He's almost entirely cyborg now, everyone. We're not sure what that means for the future of humanity, but we do know we have a fun show full of cool future tech for you today.
First, we have a Panamanian talk show with a great idea for raising awareness about the poor quality of the country's roads: a device that, when placed inside a pothole, sends out a public tweet when struck by a car. It's clever, and it seems to be working, since a few of the potholes have been fixed since the project started.
We're also checking out a new kind of VR camera that aims to have a much lower price point, enabling consumers like you and me to start creating virtual reality content. Plus, there's a video of MIT's origami robot, which can put itself together, do a bunch of activities, and then dissolve in a cup of acetone. It's so cute, though!
