Art installation opens door to virtual world (Tomorrow Daily 313)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the internet. Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best [UNKNOWN] talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda And I'm Jeff Cannata and it is Wednesday so let's hit the headlines. [MUSIC] A new system called LInespace might be a way for visually impaired people To read things like maps and other visual images. This is a system from the Hasso Plattner Institute in Germany. It consists of a drafting table and a modified 3D printing head. The person using the system can activate voice commands with a pedal and then the printer head creates visual information for them to run their fingers over. In this example, the person uses an app called home finder to see available apartments in the center of Berlin. And can command the system with gestures and voice to get more detailed images as they explore the map. The large work space allows for multiple areas to place information and a commercial version is estimated to cost less $20,000. This is super cool literally translating visual images into touch. Yeah. It's amazing. Pictures, maps, I mean the sky's the limit. And if the price is that low. Yeah. I imagine it's going to change a lot of people's lives. Yeah. If it ever goes commercial. Tech saving the world again, love it. So our next story we love this artist's idea to start up a discussion about virtual reality. In a shared experience. Doors is an exhibit that on its face looks kind of minimalist. It's a door to another world. But behind that door, is a screen giving people a glimpse into a virtual world. 3D sensors, surround sound audio and customized software Make it so when the view moves, the image actually adjusts to their position in real time, making the world on the other side of the door feel incredibly realistic and immersive. The idea here is to get people thinking about virtual reality experiences and how they change when they're shared by multiple people Instead of isolating them in a virtual reality headset. So this is definitely one of those things that is the equivalent of sitting in a movie theater and experiencing, say, Star Wars on opening weekend with a packed theater, versus watching it six months later by yourself on your computer monitor. It's so great that people have isolated the fact that isolation is the biggest issue that VR needs to deal with, and they're already working on that problem. We haven't even gotten the headsets into the hands of everybody yet, and they're already addressing that problem. Super cool. So true. Totally love this idea. Can't wait to see what they do with other bits of technology that are gonna be coming out this year. But for now, let's talk about our fontographer. No, we gotta pick our For sure. I think that's the one. I think you're right. I think that's the one for Thursday. Okay, so let's talk about that tomorrow and then if you guys want to get in on the conversation, please use hashtag #HEYTD. Yeah, we want to hear your thoughts on these stories throughout the week. If you use that hashtag, we'll know you're talking at us. And maybe we'll select your comment to incorporate into our discussion. Yeah. And we cannot wait to see them. And as I said before, let's try this again, it's time for our Phonetog of the day. [MUSIC] Today's phonetographer of the day is Yannick, who took this image on his Galaxy S6 Edge. Yeah, Yannick writes to us and says, hi CNET. On the photo you can see a part of the steel factory from Luxembourg. Just because of this factory is why Luxembourg became so rich. It is now a part of the culture of Luxembourg yesterday as I was with friends from the cinema, I saw this part of the factory. And the first thing I thought was, man, this would be a nice pic. So I made the photo. P.S., sorry for my bad English. No, no Yannick, not bad English at all. We thought it was great. I got it. Better than my German. Very good point. This picture made in Luxembourg? I'm sorry. I was still in Germany, from the story. [LAUGH] You were still in Germany for the lion space story? That's fine. [LAUGH] Yanik, thank you so much for this amazing picture. That was maybe my favorite thing that's ever happened on this show. If you guys wanna send me your phonetography, please do. Not wrong. It is better than my German. Okay, fair enough. [LAUGH] Just completely unrelated to this picture [CROSSTALK]- Of nothing. One hundred percent, yeah. If you guys wanna send in your phonetography, please do. It's TOMORROW@CNET. COM, and we love Seeing that and so [UNKNOWN]. Yeah, we need to know what device you took it on. Give us permission to use it on the show. And give us a little story about what it is and maybe your natural language. Yes, and of course. [CROSSTALK] So I don't mess it up. That's also very wise. And you can also find us on social media. Again, hashtag [UNKNOWN] we're always up for your feedback on stories, the show, whatever you want, you can find us all over social media right over here. Yeah Hey, come back tomorrow we got the deep dive show. It'll be a lot of fun. Yes. Until then. With great guests. Yeah. We got a great, great guest. We have Pancake Pal on Twitter. Pancake Pal, [UNKNOWN]. You're not gonna wanna miss that. Nope. But until then. Be good humans See you next time. Bye. [MUSIC]
