This airline's cabin crew is gonna get lit with these LED uniforms (Tomorrow Daily 351)EasyJet wants to equip its crew with futuristic, LED-embedded uniforms; also, a student creates a thesis project that consists of a robotic arm to help you draw with a 3D printing pen.
[MUSIC] Greetings, citizens of the internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best new talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda. And I'm Jeff Cannata. Hold your hats, it's time for headlines. If you're flying with Easy Jet later this year, you might get to glimpse Some futuristic flight attendant fashion. The airline is collaborating with London fashion house Cute Circuit to create uniforms that feature LED lights and microphones. The LED's will be placed on shoulders and hemlines and will deliver visual information to passengers and microphones will let the cabin crew communicate more easily with everyone on board. Ground crews aren't left out either. With a kind of hooded jacket that will help pilots better see them during takeoff and landing in dangerous weather conditions. These are so cool. I want to just fly on that airline just to see it. This is how they'll tell you where the exits are. You know, they don't have to go like this anymore. That's exactly what they're gonna do. They'll just go [SOUND]. There gonna do guidance with the thing. Which is exactly right, which is so awesome. I love it. If you are interested in those wacky little 3D-printing pens this robotic arm might help you be a better artist. [UNKNOWN] thesis project is called Guided Touch. A robotic arm that gives haptic feedback to artist and creators making object with a 3D-printing pen. The arm knows where it is in space so you can program it to understand where you should Start and stop while you prototype. She wanted to create a system where a designer could enjoy the tactile feel and artistic freedom of creating models, while retaining the accuracy and control needed in more professional design environments. Super impressive that she built this as a thesis project. Not as impressive as you pronouncing her name. You know what? Might not be impressive. Could be wrong. [LAUGH] Totally be wrong. I think it was spot on, and I was very impressed. Thank you very much. This does look like a cool thing. It does. So Thursday's show. Tomorrow's show.
