A third-party anatomy app for HoloLens looks incredible (Tomorrow Daily 377)Third-party developers are starting to show off HoloLens app progress; also, a Bangladeshi inventor comes up with a great device to cool down air inside rural homes.
[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the Internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda. I'm Jeff Cannata, and we're here to Serve up a nice dish of headlines. Parts of the world get extremely hot in the summer time but one inventor is trying to spread the idea of a really ingenious solution. Paul is from Bangladesh and in many rural parts of the country, people build houses out of tin to protect from flooding. Unfortunately, that makes those homes tiny little ovens in the summer times. So Paul came up with an idea to help cool homes down. Its surprisingly simple, he uses Physics concepts and created the eco cooler. It's made up of plastic bottles cut in half and then mounted on a board and then hung inside of a window. The air coming into the bottle changes the pressure of the air as it goes out the All around, cooling the air down by about five degrees Celsius. No electricity is needed, and since Bangladesh doesn't recycle, plastic bottles are abundant. So now, the company that led this project is collaborating with another company to go out and Teach people how to build the Eco Cooler for themselves. This is amazing. This could have been so perfect for my dorm room in college. I know could have been perfect for my house that didn't have air conditioning when I first bought it. I mean there's not much difference between dorms and [UNKNOWN] already but just like my collecting bottles together in a cooling, my gosh Yeah, i would argue in some ways. You are so hot. More culturally advanced than the dorm room. [LAUGH] Indeed. So Bangladesh, this is really cool. I love the concept very briefly and then we can get under your story. If you though into your hand, its hot. If you go oomph into your hand, its cold. Do it. Hah, oomph. You're right. It's cool. Same concept, like change the air pressure coming out and it's cooler as you get smaller. Brilliant! Yeah, amazing. Speaking of brilliant, Microsoft has opened up the API on HoloLens and some And interesting applications are coming of it. We watched Microsoft demo a simple anatomy program before, but Hollow Anatomy is something much deeper. This app allows students to explore the human body in tremendous detail, add diseases to study, and expand systems for in depth inspection. These types of apps would change the way students learn about the human body and also remove most cadaver dissection needs. The team wants to create a future thinking medical program for students that incorporate technology, like HoloLens and holoanatomy, and this is one of the first steps towards that goal. I think this is pretty amazing stuff. Yeah, and it's so detailed and really kind of speaks to the value of opening up your ATI to third party developers because. Sometimes people think of ideas, or have ideas that are so much more than you could possibly give to it as a major company like Microsoft, which I think is really brilliant. And smart to do it before this actually hits the consumer market, so you have a built in- Ecosystem is there, it's ready to go. There are many different applications for as opposed to this sort of piecemeal, it's out Now there's access for developers, you're gonna get kind of a trickle of stuff, things like that. Yeah, I love this, I love it. I think this would be a great one to talk in depth on Thursday because I'm curious as to what viewers think would be. Great applications for the Holo-Lens in this kind of tech. Yeah, and we will talk a little bit about open apis and why they are just killing it right now, they're crushing it. Open apis are crushing it right now. So use the hashtag #HEYTD. Tell us what you'd wanna see on HoloLens. If you could build an app, what would be that app? What would you build? Yeah, and any other comments you might have about the idea of open APIs. And Microsoft's decision in this case, I think is a smart one. Yeah, for sure. We'd like your comments, we'll share them on the show on Thursday. Yeah. All right guys, let's check out our Phonetographer of the Day. [MUSIC] Today's phone-tographer is Rawdeadfish. Took this picture with a Galaxy Note 5. Good old Rawdeadfish writes to us an says, hey TD. So, I took four selfies with my Galaxy Note 5 this evening and by just playing around with a couple of apps on the phone I was able to layer all the selfies and merge them into one shot. I also happened to capture the four band shirts of the groups that I've been listening to the most over the past couple months while training to run the Buffalo half marathon this past weekend. Nice. Permission granted to share this group shot, which are all of himself. He says, my name is pronounced Rawdeadfish. Short for Sushi. And as always pasta in your honor. Be a good human. I love it! Totally awesome. I love that he captured himself four times on the porch. Yeah. It's look so nice. The leaning. He's got the shirt. Really smart, smart way to do that. We love this! I'm so happy with this theme this month- It's pretty good. Which is selfies. People being very clever, very inventive, very creative and appreciative. Yes. If you guys wanna get in on that sweet selfie action and be part of our Phonetographer for the Day segment, email your picture to us at TOMMOROW@CNET.COM. Yeah. Be great like [UNKNOWN] Fish did Tell us how to pronounce your name, even if it seems obvious. Give us the permission to use your picture on our show. Very important. Tell us what device you took it on. And we love a little story as to why you took that particular photo. We do, We also love it when you hang out with us on social media. We're tomorrow daily all over and tomorrowdaily.com is the best place to send your friends. To share the show with them. Which we always appreciate. Indeed. That is it for today's show. We'll be back tomorrow with a brand new jacket of science fact and science fiction going in their nice sandwich for you to eat. Yummy, lunch time. And so, until then. Be getting you a minute. Bye guys. [MUSIC]
