'Holographic magazine' comes to life via augmented reality (Tomorrow Daily 288)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings, citizens of the Internet. Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe You're watching one of our nano episodes. Every week we give you a bunch of headlines Monday through Wednesday and then on Thursday Jeff Cannata and I join forces on our main stage and talk about all the great stuff that we like. So let's not waste any more time. Let's hit the headlines. [MUSIC] I've got Three words for you. Laser. Robot. Snake. Okay, so maybe we should explain a little bit more. It's not nearly as terrifying, or, honestly, as fun as it sounds. OCRobotics and TWI Limited thought that maybe if they could figure out a way to weld pipes from the inside, instead of the outside, it would help a lot of different People. Sometimes it's too tough or dangerous to access tight spots to patch a pipe externally so they created a robot snake that can move inside pipes. When it reaches its target it uses a five kilowatt fiber laser to weld from within. That's a pretty nifty thing for things like older buildings and other inaccessible pipes. But I suggest we definitely put a kill switch on that thing, just in case. Next up, print magazines seem to be out of fashion, but this company wants to bring them into the 21st century by creating what they are calling the world's first holographic magazine. Fun Magazine is looking for cash over on Kickstarter to create an augmented reality magazine. There's an accompanying app that lets the reader scan pages and then watch them come to life with animation, models and more. They're looking at a pretty aggressive timetable on delivery though saying if they hit their goals they can move to faster servers and deliver their first issue by next. To months. I'd be a little skeptical of that, but you can test the actual concept out on their Kickstarter page where they have some sample pages you can scan with their free iOS and Android apps. You have to shell out 25 bucks to get a single issue of Funn Magazine, so you'll have to kinda decide whether that's worth it or not for your wallet. Make sure you use the #HEYTD to give us your feedback on the show. We will read our favorite tweets about all of our best headlines on Thursdays, but for now let's check out our phonetographer of the day. [MUSIC] Our phonetographer for the day today is Kwetsi, who took this picture with a Galaxy Note 5, and wrote in very simply, hi. Just a picture of some flowers in the garden. And what beautiful flowers those are Kwetsi, I love it. I love the simplicity in your e-mails, the simplicity of the photo, really speaks for itself, it's gorgeous. If you guys want to send in your photography you can of course e-mail us tomorrow@cnet.com. If you want to send feedback to the show you can e-mail us as well or you can send us a line on social media. There's a lot of place that you can find us on social media. If you wanna share the show with somebody, send the over to tomorrowdaily.com, it is just that easy. We will be back tomorrow with our long show, 45 minutes of goodness about technology our favorite headline And a special guest, and also don't miss my field trip to Johnson Space Center over in Houston. It was very, very exciting. So that's it for the show guys, we'll see you tomorrow. Be good humans. Bye! [SOUND] [MUSIC]
