Glasses-free 3D at the movies could work like this someday (Tomorrow Daily 398)A team at MIT suggests a way to create high quality, glasses-free 3D for movie theater screens; also, a new Magic Leap demo appears (but we're still waiting to see the official hardware).
[MUSIC] Greetings, citizens of the Internet. Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda. Jeff Canata is, again, not here. He is off on assignment. But for now, I will have to deliver you the headlines. We got a glimpse of more Magic Leap this week, but, unfortunately, it's just another app. We still don't know what Magic Leap's hardware looks like, but we did get to see an app in development. This time around, it was a shopping app shown off by Magic Leap Chief Marketing Officer Brian Wallace. To Ali Bab's CMO Chris Tung. The app included voice control which is something we haven't seen before in Magic Leap's demos, and featured a mother shopping for baby room decor. Ali baba is an investor in magic leap, so it does make sense that they want to see some progress on their investment,. Wallace did say that if the headset magic leap is working on achieving its goals and it could in fact replace our smart phones in the future. honestly though, I just want to know what it looks like and i am hoping it is a full face shield that is augmented reality for me all of the time. What do you think it looks like, I'm very curious as to your opinions. But I just want to see it. I just want to see what magic [INAUDIBLE] is working on. In other news, MIT is giving us a potential solution to 3D glasses Free movie experiences. When we talk about glasses-free 3D, we're usually talking about the Nintendo 3DS, but MIT's computer science and artificial intelligence lab, or CSAIL, uploaded a video earlier this week showing how glasses Free 3D might work on a larger scale. They're calling it Cinema 3D and instead of using a stereoscopic screen made from a single parallax barrier like a Nintendo 3DS, MIT start using multiple barriers that targets each seated view in a movie theater could in fact work. It already got tested in auditorium with viewers all reporting consistently high quality 3D without the need for glasses But a full working prototype is still in development. So not quite yet, but this is definitely one of those things that previous guest Ted Schilowitz might want to look into as a futurist for the entertainment industry, because Obviously glasses-free 3D is where it's at. And if you can deliver it in a really cool way, that's what I want to see. Those are the 3D movies that I want to go check out. What story do you think we should do? I'm gonna leave it up to you guys. Send us tweets using the hashtag heytd Tell us what you want us to talk about on tomorrow's long show. We have a great guest, Ivan Van Norman from Geek and Sundry, is going to be here with us, to talk about board games and many other delightful topics. So for now. That's it for headlines. Let's check out our phonetographer today. [BLANK_AUDIO] Our phonetographer of the day today is Ryan who took this picture on his Galaxy Note 2. It's so cute. Ryan says here's a picture I took of my pug Amanti on a beautiful evening walk in Colorado Springs. He's eight years old now and starting to act like a grumpy old man most of the time This walk brought out his big smile, it was shot on Samsung Note 2, and you have my permission to use the photo. This is a ridiculously cute dog, and also the perspective in this picture almost makes it look like your dog is twenty feet high, which is my favorite thing in the universe. This is so cinematic, I mean the Note 2 totally. Went to bat and hit a big home run here. I love Monte, he's adorable. I can almost hear him breathing really hard, it'd be like [SOUND] as he walks through, because he has such a squishy little face. If you guys wanna send in your phonetography of your pets, please feel free to do so. Send them to email@example.com. You gotta do a few things though. You gotta tell us how to pronounce your name, if there's any chance we might mispronounce it. Tell us a story about your pet, because obviously we love stories. And you gotta give us permission to use the picture on the show, cuz legal says we have to. And of course, make sure you tell us what device you took your photo with, because I like to know what you took your picture with, cuz some of these pictures are amazing. That is it for today's show. If you want to share Tomorrow Daily with a friend, please feel free to send them to tomorrowdaily.com. We have a really big announcement on tomorrow's show, we're gonna do it right up front. We're not gonna mess around. We're gonna tell you there's some major things happening with Tomorrow Daily. And Jeff will be here, also, for that. So do not miss tomorrow's show, or at least the first five minutes, guys, because sort of important news. But until tomorrow, be good humans. See you next time, bye. [MUSIC]
