[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe, I'm Ashley Esqueda. There's no co host yet, these are our mini episodes, so let's hit the headlines. [NOISE] We know We know you're probably super sick of DeLorean's after back to the future day yesterday. But Stanford has a really cool car and we have to show it to you. This is Marty. [UNKNOWN] intended. That's short for multiple actuator research test bed for [INAUDIBLE] control and in a nut shell, it's a DeLorean [INAUDIBLE] to be an all electrical vehicle with additional autonomous driving capabilities built in. The goal of Marty is to test self driving cars in more intense situations with more extreme movements from both the car and the driver. So, the team at Stanford did what anybody would do to put their car to the test. They set it up to do donuts. It performs beautifully, if the video is anything to go by. And Stanford engineer Jonathan Gough says that sitting in the car and experiencing its self driving prowess is quote, a mind bending experience that helps you appreciate that we really are living in the future, unquote. I should catch all this by saying BMW showed off some emergency maneuvers in its Self driving car back at CEF 2014, so this definitely isn't a first self drifting car, but maybe, just maybe if you needed a tiny bit of Doc and Marty before putting your Back to the Future enthusiasm to sleep in hibernation, this story could be it for you. Alright, so moving from donut making Delorians to fingerprinting technology, an Australian scientist started off with a pretty bad experience, but turned it into an amazing one that might change the way the forensics teams collect fingerprints. Forever. Unfortunately as we said it started with a bad incident. Scientist Dr. Kang Liang's home was burgled and watching police dust his house for fingerprints seemed a little bit old fashion to him. So Liang worked with a team at the CSIRO research facility to develop a liquid that can make fingerprints show up directly on any non porous surface with a print on it. The liquid has crystals in it that bind to the fingerprint's leftover residues. And after it sits for just 30 seconds a black light can be shined on the print giving ultrathin and accurate coding a bright neon glow to photograph for analysis. The idea here is that the process would speed up the ability to capture prints and run them through a database and also enable forensics teams to test where dusting isn't appropriate or feasible. So while we're bummed Dr. Leong had to go through a robbery to get to this scientific development We're also pretty impressed that he took a bad situation and created something amazing that might help future criminals. Ok, our very last headline is about a 3 D printed jeep pulling a 3 D printed house. That can give each other power. The Department of Energy's Oakridge National Laboratory developed a platform with the ability for energy to flow in both directions. And they applied that platform to a 3-D printed car, and a 3-D printed house. This bi-directional power system is called Additive Manufacturing and Integrated Energy, or AMIE, for short. The idea is to use Amy to combine a home, a vehicle, and an energy grid to help conserve natural resources. The two way wireless charger has a control system that can smartly decide which way the energy flows, depending on which thing you're using, either the car or the house. Plus, the house and the vehicle themselves are designed specifically for the task at hand. The lab isn't quite sure yet whether they'll release the design to the public as open source Plans, but they are already talking about the possibilities of Amy 2.0. Well that's it for our headlines, let's talk about what we're into this week. [MUSIC] My into it is music video. And more specifically, a virtual reality music video, a 360 degree music video, something you can check out On your smartphone or your browser. This is The Weeknd. It's a video for The Hills. It's a remix of the song. It's got Eminem in it. And the video itself is amazing to look at. You can actually go onto the YouTube app or use Cardboard. You can actually wear your Cardboard VR headset if you have one and look around. In the middle of the video as The Weeknd sings, it's pretty amazing It was created by a company called United Realities and honestly if you have your smartphone out and you're watching that you should also check out United Realities video they did for Foles which is also super duper cool in 360 degrees. Okay, pretty school Logan, you're up. This weekend I'm gonna be spending my time rocking out on a plastic axe. I love music games and with Guitar Hero live my love for the genre has entered the new generation of consoles The new guitar is a lot of fun but its really challenging to have to unlearn everything I knew before hand. GHTV which is a 24 hour playable music video network offers an endless supply of music and an endless supply of blisters for my finger. Although I'm starting to get comfortable on expert mode, I can't wait to master a fake guitar. All right, that's enough about me. Let's talk about you and your phonetographer of the day. [MUSIC] Today's phonetographer of the day comes from Scott who took this picture with his iPhone 6s plus. Scott writes to us and says, "I was doing some gardening last weekend and this little guy seems fascinated by it all and wouldn't leave until I took his photo. So I snapped a pic with my new iPhone 6s plus before I carefully moved him out of harms way. You of course have my permission to use this photo. In fact, if you don't use it, it could lead to deep emotional scarring that may take years of therapy to discover from. Just saying. Scott, I'm confused. Do you mean we will need therapy if we don't use your photo, or you will need therapy if we don't use your photo? Now you have to email us back and clarify. But for anybody else out there who wants to submit their phonetography to be considered for the show, you can email us tomorrow@cnet.com. Make sure you give us your picture, your name, a little story about your photo, and permission to use it on the show. If you wanna find us online we're Tomorrow Daily on Twitter, Facebook, all that stuff. And I'm @AshleyEsqueda on Twitter and producer Logan is @LoganMoy if you wanna tell him about your guitar hero experiences this week. If you wanna commiserate, wanna talk about how awesome the new guitar is, you should do that because he would enjoy That's it for the show, you guys, this week. We'll be back on Monday with Brandon Docket of [UNKNOWN] Science Fiction, blowing up in your face [UNKNOWN] amazing. But until then, be a good human. We'll see you guys next time. Bye. [MUSIC]
