Who needs a hoverboard when you can fly around on this thing? (Tomorrow Daily 346)Flyboard shows off what appears to be a turbine-powered board; also, an 18-rotor electric helicopter completes its first manned flight.
[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the internet. Welcome to tomorrow daily, the best known talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda, Jack is out of town and will be back tomorrow. So for now, let's hit the headlines. You may have seen flyboards interesting water powered device, but now fly board is taking to the sky Zapata dropped a video this weekend showing off a test of Flyboard Air, a board that appears to be turbine powered. The end of the video claims the flight time was 3 minutes and 55 seconds, and the board reached speeds of up to 55 kilometers an hour But Zapata says this flyboard can actually fly for up to ten minutes and hits speeds shy of 150 kilometers an hour. It can also reach and altitude of 10,000 feet max. Well see how this pans out as they continue testing. And they also say they have a mission one coming Soon, but it looks really, really cool, and I really, really wanna write it. More transportation news, as the Volocopter took its first manned flight. The Volocopter has been in development for six years. And it finally took its maiden flight last week with a human pilot on board. Previous flights have been unmanned for safety reasons. But this first manned voyage goes relatively smoothly in the video, so those unmanned tests seem to have paid off. Right now, Volocopter can't fly too far, since it's an electric vehicle. But the company is working hard on increased flight duration, which of course would be the one thing that you would want if you're flying a single person drone, basically, electric drone. I think that we should talk about flyboard on Thursday's show because obviously everybody wants True hoverboards, this is turbine power, it's pretty cool. We can talk about jetpacks as well, because there are some other turbine jetpack things that are happening in the space. If you guys wanna get in on the conversation use #HEYTD and talk to us about it on Twitter and if we like your tweet, we'll use them in Thursday show. And that being said, let's check out our phonetographer of the day. [MUSIC] Our phonetographer of the day today is Jason, who took this picture of a landmark which is our April theme with his Galaxy S7 Edge. Jason writes to us and says hey, Jeff, Ashley, Logan, Bonnie, Chris Viva, and all the good humans. I see Jason has been reading our credits at the end of the show. It's Jason from north Alabama, and here's a picture of the Space and rocket center in Huntsville, Alabama. Can you say space camp? I was driving home from work and thought this was a perfect landmark for this month's theme, so I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, double tap that home button and within a second, I took this amazing picture. I'm truly impressed with their dual pixel technology. What do y'all think? Well, Jason, I think it's a really good picture. And honestly it makes me want to run out of the studio right now and go straight to space camp. Straight to space camp. Also You were selling us real hard on that S7 Edge. I'm just gonna tell you, we're really impressed with dual pixels, you gotta double tap the home button for a picture, really great stuff. If you guys want to submit your phonetography the challenge this month is landmarks, points of interest and monuments. We would love to see your photos Please email us tomorrow at cnet.com, and do what Jason did. Give us permission to use the photos, tell us a story about it, and tell us what device you used to take the picture. You can also find us all over social media, and if you wanna share the show, you can send them to tomorrowdaily.com. Well, that's it for me. Tomorrow Jeff will be back in his normal seat But until then be good humans. See you guys next time. Bye. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
