Tomorrow Daily 133: Spider-like 3D printing, the YouTube Kids app and more

On today's show, Khail and Ashley check out a robot arm that can mimic spider web weaving with 3D-printed plastic instead of silk, discuss Google's new YouTube app that's just for kids and enjoy an interactive art installation that turns artist into canvas.

It's Monday, and Ashley returns to the studio today to talk all kinds of crazy tech and other fun stuff with Khail. First, a robot arm that takes its cues from nature, merging 3D-printing with the beauty and skill of a spider weaving a web; then, Google's initiative to bring young kids into the YouTube fold via an app created just for them; and finally, an art installation that turns the artists into 3D canvasses in real time.

We're also discussing a very interesting bit of smart jewellery -- a pearl pendant/earrings/ring that's NFC-enabled, so the giver can record a message (audio, photo, video) for the recipient to retrieve later with the tap to their smartphone. Khail thinks this company is too big already for a Kickstarter campaign, but Ashley seems intrigued...
