Futuristic eyeglasses adjust your prescription on the fly (Tomorrow Daily 331)VR developers use photogrammetry to create ultra-realistic location renders; also, an Israeli startup shows off a concept for high-tech "omnifocal" eyewear.
[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the internet. Welcome to Tomorrow Daily the best geek talk show in the known universe. I'm actually Ashely Esqueda, Jeff Cannata is up at GDC probably checking out the Playstation VR event right about now But, for now let's hit some headlines. All right. So, there is a German developer who is doing some incredible things with virtual reality that you have to see. Realities. IO showed off a stunning demo of various interior spaces in virtual reality that utilizes photo grammatry. The technique uses pictures from a digital camera And in this particular demo, a realities.io employee spent a little time stitching the images together and cleaning up the finished product. Specular lighting software added a great finishing touch making the rooms come to life as if you were actually there. Realities.io says they wanna use this software mainly for virtual tourism So that they can give people the chance to visit and walk around places that were previously not possible for them to do so. This is a beautiful example of photo grametry and honestly I can't wait to see this used in a horror game because it's gonna be so realistic. But maybe I'll wait to play that horror game Until daytime. If you have glasses like me, you might find this next story very very interesting. Israeli company Deep Optics is working on some high tech glasses that would be considered omnifocals. They would be able to change their focus in real time. A layer of liquid crystal resides in the frames and sensors track the wear's pupil. When the frames calculate the depth of the object the wearer is looking at, a small electrical current changes the liquid crystal, effectively adjusting the wearer's prescription in real time. Deep Optics says it wants to start human trials in a couple of years. But until then, they are gonna work on making the technology smaller and smaller, so that they can fit a Standard pair of frames. So that's it for our headlines. I think we should talk about deep optics but I have a feeling Jeff is going to want to hear a little bit about the photo grammatry, and he's going to want to talk a little bit about that. So maybe we'll roll both of them in. If you want to get Get in on the discussion you can Tweet out at us with the #HEYTD and if we like your tweets we will incorporate them on our thursday long show when Jeff comes back. That being said let's check out our phonetographer for today.

Ranaan, way to capture a perfect rainbow in the streets of San Diego, although I think that is one of the places you can actually get a picture of a rainbow on a pretty regular basis, because that city is sometimes perfect.
