Elon Musk wants to beam Internet to you from space (Tomorrow Daily 192)
On today's show, projection technology that lets you design your own 3D wearable.
A really awesome oven that's gonna cook your food for you.
And Elon Musk may be doing crazy stuff again.
Yes, it's Tomorrow Daily.
Greetings citizens of the internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best talk show in the known universe.
I'm Ashley Esqueda, joining me as always the man, the myth, the legend, the pizza connoisseur, my pizza consigliere.
Oh, I like a pizza debutante.
A pizza ingenue, if you will.
That was my favorite thing that I've heard this month.
And wrap the intro.
Tell me all about Elon Musk.
So, I'm just saying we should coin this the adventures of Elon Musk, because there's always some crazy things.
And it's always seems so incredible.
Well, today he's decide, well I think it was two days ago.
He's decided that he wants to be the one to bring the internet to the whole world.
And this is based around his SpaceX program.
Now previously we've heard of people like Facebook trying to bring internet around the world.
Well Elon Musk wants to beat that and wants to have it done within five years he wants this project to be launched.
This is insane.
So basically what he wants to do is create 4,000 low cost satellites
That will be in Earth orbit via the Falcon 9 rocket.
And connect to ground stations here on the West Coast in the U.S.
Look at this great 4K video of all these rockets launching.
Such a great video.
It's kinda porn, for us.
It is, it's rocket porn.
They're hoping to start testing next year, and could make the service available in five years.
That's pretty good.
What's crazy about this-
Yeah, global Internet!
With 4,000 low cost.
So interesting thing about this.
Is he actually intends to use this to fund a different project.
So all of-
His super villain lair in a volcano.
World takeover laser.
But he's basically gonna use all of the money that he makes from this to hypothetically Create his city on Mars.
Well, there we go.
There we have it.
So the long term revenue he hopes to create, a city on Mars, which has been a plan that he's been trying to do all along.
One of his many.
As one does.
Many crazy plans.
But I think I'm a musker.
I'm a musketeer.
I think musketeer is SM
I love Elon Musk, and all of his craziness.
He hasn't pitched an idea where I was "Whoa, That's Stupid, Mr. Musk." It's always been "Okay.
alright." I can see the fact that he's making giant steps.
And whether or not they miss they at least get people thinking so very positive toward them
What about cliche yearbook quote that everybody puts they're like aim for the moon
See you next summer
Aim for the moon even if you miss you'll end up amongst the stars I think [UNKNOWN]- I never heard that- took that
Super literally, that was I think in my senior yearbook in high school about 50% of girls, had that as their senior quote.
But, yeah, I think Elon Musk, maybe, took that really to heart.
And was like I'm literally going to aim for Mars and then if I miss, [CROSSTALK] like I'm in space anyway.
I'll be lost in space, yeah.
I'm lost in space anyway.
But this is pretty cool, he wants to bring internet around the world.
And with the Facebook Saying some people were a little worried because they thought it was gonna be like really dirty.
Taking your information.
And they probably were, but they've scrapped their hypothetical Facebook scrapped it.
The planning of it?
Yeah, I think that was the thing that was two days ago.
They didn't officially cut it, and a lot of people are thinking because of the Elon Musk thing.
But I think Facebook was just like We can't do anything right.
I know we've heard Elon Musk talk about this before, Like, he hypothetically wanted to do it, but everybody was like, well, we don't really know.
And I think this was like, didn't he file official documentation with the FCC saying this is the plan?
That's what this news story is.
Is that the FCC, he officially.
So this is real now?
He wants to do this for real?
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Sorry to have Skip that part, but he is officially dealing with the FCC through this, so.
What this is real?
There you go.
I love it.
But that brings us to our space tag of the day.
Our musk tag of the day.
Our musk tag of the day, which is, okay, this is a weird one.
So, we're calling this the continuing adventures of Elon Musk.
We wanna know.
So TD Musk is your plot from a fictional comic book series called the Continuous, the Continuing Space Adventures of Elon Musk.
That's really hard to like, understand.
Kale very kindly coined this, this morning to Continuing
Space adventures of Elon Musk, and it made me laugh so hard at my desk while getting the show ready that I'm like this has to be the hashtag of the day.
The continuing space adventures of Elon Musk.
So what kind of story adventure would you come up with-
Anything you want.
That Elon Musk would do?
Maybe he finds a light saber and goes and fights a bunch of Jedis.
I can't wait.
And maybe he goes and rides a
Let us know.
[CROSSTALK] Maybe an actually good idea that you think that Elon Musk should go ahead and tackle for the rest of us.
[CROSSTALK] So let us know.
So that's TD Musk.
Awesome job, Elon.
Thanks for watching the show, man.
Keep up the great work, Elon.
Yeah, thank you for being a fan of us.
We're also a fan of you.
Let me tell you about the June oven because this revolutionize a lot of our cooking.
Everybody out there who-
Yeah you were flipping out about this.
Who likes to cook in a toaster oven, which I do often because there's only two of us and I don't need a giant oven to cook in all the time.
True that, yeah.
You know what I mean.
So, the June Intelligent Oven is pretty fancy, so you're gonna see video of it.
It's got these touch screens, buttons, got one dial on it.
It has coils made of carbon fiber so even when you turn this toaster oven up to 500 degrees inside, it literally is cool to the touch.
So there's no burn Burn danger.
Now is the crazy part about the June intelligent oven.
It was created by people who have worked in projects like the iPhone, FitBit GoPro, Lyft.
Like these are huge, huge projects.
Amazing products, great products people use everyday.
This [UNKNOWN] oven figures out what you're trying to cook and it does it for you.
So here's how that'll work.
Let's say you have a steak and you put your steak inside.
And inside there is actually a scale.
Inside there that ways your food exactly.
So have you ever done defrost on your microwave and it's like how much does it and your like I dont know.
How much does this way?
A pound like you kinda just guess
Just guess, whatever microwave.
No this actually knows how much it ways so it knows exactly how much heat to give it, They said you could literally, no preheating, you could put in a tray of raw cookie dough and it'll know, oh hey, you're making chocolate chip cookies.
I know exactly how much time it's gonna take for me to cook these from zero to 350 degrees.
It will take x amount of time.
So you just put in raw cookie dough, cold, into the June Intelligent Oven, it takes a picture, it has a camera inside.
And it takes a picture.
And using the Tegra, the NVIDIA Tegra K1 Chip, it can access deep machine-learning algorithms and tell exactly what's inside.
So it can say, oh hey, I noticed you're making a steak.
I know how to make a steak, I'm gonna make that steak for you.
This is like Jetsons technology.
This is straight up like crazy Jetsons technology.
I love it so much.
and so, you can also walk away from your oven and if you want to say, check on those chocolate chip cookies, you just access the app and it shows you what the camera sees.
Yeah, like a live video of your food?
you do, you have a live video of your food.
You can cook a 12 pound turkey in there, a 12 inch pizza.
I'm sorry, is this is a little boy, or a woman?
I think it's a woman, who has a very lovely haircut.
She reminds me the of the lady on Game of Thrones from dorm.
Over in [INAUDIBLE]
Okay, so this is an actual thing I can buy, or what?
You can pre-order it.
So, the pre-order is open.
It's not on Kickstarter.
They are just like, nope.
We're gonna go.
So you can set like, what type of steak you want.
Medium-rare, medium, whatever, and it'll do exactly what you need.
There's the website, juneoven.com.
You can put a deposit down for $95, and then you pay the full balance when it's ready to ship, which is $1,500 total, so you'll pay $1,405 when it's ready to ship.
A normal toaster oven is a few hundred.
A good toaster oven is between $150 and $200?
Yeah, maybe $200
But it burns you house up, like you-
Well yeah, you know it just toasts and some of them if you buy like a convection oven, which is sort of a microwave kind of convection oven thing, that costs more.
There like, you know, a few hundred dollars.
It's not a terrible cost.
I mean it's a cost of like a nice DSLR camera.
I can see you getting this.
Are you going to get it.
Are you gonna get it.
I'm thinking about it
It's a little expensive, a little far out of my price range, makes me feel a little nervous.
Maybe ask your husband to get it to you for like Christmas or something.
Maybe if I get like a nice windfall, like a bank error in my favor, or an extra side job or something.
I've been waiting for that bank error for a real long time.
Me too, ever since I was eight years old, first time I played Monopoly I'm like, when am I gonna get a bank error in my favor?
I don't think 1,500 is
Is too much to ask.
I don't think it's a terrible price.
I mean, it's a little pricey.
I would have liked 999.
I would have paid 1000 for it.
Easy, no problem.
Producer Logan would you buy this?
Yes, but I can't afford it.
Okay, can't afford it.
So we're saying it could replace urban
Urban dwellers who live in smaller apartments who maybe don't want an oven or don't use an oven.
This would be the thing they would cook almost all their food in.
It's pretty cool.
Okay, so now that we've talked about that.
Let's talk about this projection design stuff.
This actually was shown up at South by Southwest apparently.
I hadn't heard about it, but it's super cool and the video is amazing.
This is from MADLAB, and this is a program called Tactum.
So, here's what it is.
It's projection technology that allows you to actually manipulate the projection in real time on your skin.
Which is super cool.
So this person is going to design a piece of jewelry.
They're gonna design a bracelet.
Using this technology.
So they have this amazing prototype, their very first prototype used tracking and mapping hardware through Kinect, and then they did one with Leap.
So yeah, there it is right here, the printed design.
That's the bracelet?
That is the actual bracelet which looks exactly like the light projection.
And they actually went a little bit further with this
And on the website, you can see pictures of Moto 360.
So they were saying, you know?
There's a lot of items that you need really precision based design, instead of your finger, which can be very inaccurate.
So they said you can set limitations on the projection.
So, for example, they did a Moto 360 watchband.
And they said they told the software it has to be able to hold this watch face, and here's the size of it and here's the exact parameters, and then you design around that.
So what they did was they created this really rad watch face,
Do we have that?
That looks super cool.
It's on the website.
We have the link to it.
Maybe I'll throw up an image and post.
But it's really neat, and they were able to drop in this Moto 360 watch face into this insane looking, Geiger, alien-esque, watch band, which is super weird.
Was it 3D printed?
Is that what that was?
So what they do, it's sort of a continuous loop.
They have the projection with the tracking technology, and then that goes into the software.
And so based on what's happening in the software, the 3D modeling, changes the 3D model of it and then reflects that change back on through the projection.
I need a 3D printer.
I know [CROSSTALK]
There it is, there's the watch.
There's the watch.
Can you imagine before leaving your house, like creating a watch.
Yeah, like's no big deal I made a watch band today, like whatever.
But it's really neat.
It's fantastic, yeah.
It's really super cool.
It's a super basic thing, not gonna change the world in terms of making life better for disabled people or things like that.
But so, so cool.
And also I can think of a million ways that this could evolve into other stuff.
And I'm sure you guys can, too.
But that's Tactum.
T-A-C-T-U-M if you want to go check it out.
I like that.
But that's it for our headlines, we're going to be right back with a very insane fiery musical instrument inspired by Mad Max for Mod Squad.
And we also have your user feedback and our photographer of the day.
So, don't go [UNKNOWN] daily.
Before we go check out this tiny hamster monster.
Welcome back to the show.
It's Wednesday, which means it's time to talk about somebody making something cool out of something else.
So it's time for Mod Squad.
That graphic is amazing.
You did a really good So, if you haven't seen Mad Max, or if you have, you've probably seen the bungee cord suspended guitar player with the fire coming out of the top of his guitar.
He's the best.
Yeah, we would argue maybe that he is actually
The protagonist of Mad Max.
I dont think they should name the movie Mad Max anymore.
No, Yeah, Hes gonna be in Star Wars as well
Hes gotta be.
So its pretty amazing, like so cool and funny and its one guy named Caleb Craft decided that after seeing that character that he also needed a string instrument that shoots fire.
So he freaking made one.
And we had a lot of you guys submit this
A bunch of you [INAUDIBLE] tweets, emails, so we had to show it on the show this week.
We know it's all over the internet.
But he made a flame throwing ukulele, which is.
I love this so much.
So he used supplies like a butane canister.
A ukulele obviously, an igniter, a caulking gun, zip ties, shapelock, a hose, like a little metal hose, an electrical tape to put everything together, hot glue gun, kettle.
He had a fire extinguisher on hand, just in case.
Things got, things got a little too hot.
He even put it in the back of his truck.
For a sec-
I know, I love it!
So, he has all his plans, and actually you can literally go see his full instructions on his YouTube video.
He'll tell you exactly how to make one for yourself.
Don't do it.
It is not the safest project in the world.
But it looks So amazing.
And yeah, I would say maybe just keep a fire extinguisher on hand like he does, because if you decide to do this for yourself, it's actually kind of dangerous.
And he says the idea could totally be scaled up, to guitars and bigger string instruments.
He's like you could literally do this for a lot of different.
Instrument he just chose the ukulele because he thought it would be a good way to start.
This guys a man yeah.
This guy totally rocks.
So [INAUDIBLE] craft
Where does he live.
That's a great question, I'm not sure.
It would be interesting to see if we could.
We got to see it.
If he lives in Southern California we will have him on the show 100% 100%.
Great work Kaleb Craft.
It make show this video.
This is like like been all over the internet this week.
Yeah, thanks to everybody that submitted this.
A lot of you guys submitted this to us.
And we listened and here it is.
Thank you so much.
You know how much we love fire.
We love, and fire.
Okay, so speaking of you guys.
We got to talk about your user feedback.
[NOISE] Yesterday we asked you guys to use the hashtag TD Flushed to talk about the pros and cons of putting a toilet.
A working flushable A toilet in an elevator.
You've got a lot to say about this and very entertaining.
So, Rick tweeted us and said; I can only see one con, "What if the toilet paper runs out?" Who you gonna call?
These are genuinely good questions.
It's a good question, it really is.
We should translate these into Japanese and send them to the Japanese government because they're really important questions.
You guys are asking the hard hitting questions here.
Walter wrote in and said, pro, emergency use if trapped or ill.
Con, people will abuse the horribly.
Perhaps in Japan it would be ok.
I do wonder about that, I mean we could never have that here.
People have no shame in America.
Americans have no shame.
We have no shame, which is why we do this show every day.
We have no shame whatsoever.
Syafiqah wrote in and said, Con: No privacy, like if a lot of people are in the elevator it'll be weird.
There's a storage, right?
So stuff the food in there.
I don't think I would want to put food anywhere near that.
Cuz there's still a questionable idea.
At best questionable.
I mean, at best.
I can only think of one place where a bathroom makes sense.
Currently in the bathroom.
Yeah, in a bathroom.
A toilet would make sense in an actual bathroom.
Gail wrote in and said Pro, ready use during a disaster #hygienic.
Con, people staring and uploading you to periscope, [LAUGH] Which that always makes me laugh, like the idea of somebody just like I really have to go, wait wait wait let me get out my phone let me put this on periscope.
You guys are using periscope right.
The only way to use periscope.
But yeah, that was your user feedback, I was very entertained.
YouTube has some very good ones.
I'm been reading through our YouTube comments.
Some of you have some really funny pros and cons, some of which I could not repeat on this show because it is a family show, but they entertained me very deeply.
Anyway, it is time for our very last piece of user feedback, which is always our phonetographer of the day.
I know, I know.
I can't have that.
Our phonetographer today is Thomas.
He took this picture with a Moto G, 2014 Moto G. Which is super impressive, considering it doesn't have the.
The same level of flagship lens that a lot of the higher end ones like the Moto X.
So he took this picture and he said I took this picture on my Moto G 2014 and [UNKNOWN] Lake at sunset.
In Knockmealdown mountains in Tipperary Ireland.
It's along way to Tipperary.
PF, love the show.
And we love you Thomas.
That's a great picture.
I mean I love it.
That one hill in the back though looks a little like California 'cus it's kinda brownish.
Aww, too soon.
But the front, so, so green.
It's just amazing.
We haven't gotten a photo from Ireland so this is nice, this is s nice change.
I think we had one, or was it Scotland maybe.
It was Scotland.
We got one from Scotland.
So this is a great-
They're not the same place Ashley!
They're different people.
I know guys.
But they're all in that general area and so I just put it all together.
We're all on Earth.
We're all on Earth, we're all earthlings.
Fair enough, yeah.
Except for [UNKNOWN] Who is, yeah, way up in space right now.
See you later, Elon.
But that's it for that.
If you wanna send in your phone-tography, you can send it to Tomorrow@CNET.com.
Tell us a little story.
Tell us what device took it with.
And if you wanna send in your Hashtag of the Day via email, you can.
If not, send it over social media.
We're TomorrowDaily on most major social media networks.

And that's it for the show, guys.
We will be back tomorrow with a brand new docket of weird, wonderful Science facts, science fiction, geek pop culture crashing all the other blowing up in your face.
And we're also going to tell you plans for E3
Which is next week.
When are we gonna tell them?
I think Tomorrow, when the rails come off.
