Culture
[MUSIC] Greeting citizens of the Internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily and the best tech talk show of the universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda. And I'm Jeff Cannata and it is time for headlines. Our first of which is Microsoft's announcement that the HoloLens has entered developer pre-order. There are a few caveats, though. One, you have to receive an invite from them to pre-order one. And two, It's gonna cost you 3,000 bucks, ouch. Here's the good news. If you did get accepted, you'll have some fun testing out a handful of apps and games announced on Microsoft's blog. Including Skype for Hololens. A game called Fragments where you solve a crime that plays out in your own living room. And even RoboRaid, which we saw a demo of at a Microsoft event last October. Devices start shipping at the end of March, and we can't wait to see what kinds of innovative ideas developers have for Holoens now that dev kits are coming out. This is kind of what changed the game for Oculus, getting it out into the hands of developers, and really having people run wild with it. I know it's out of the price range of average people, and really can't even get it, and that's a good thing, I think. Now we are going to see the possibilities with this device. And that's going to make everyone want to buy it right? I hope so! It makes me want to buy it. Alright. Our second story is about Sony. They are launching an interesting, futuristic universal remote that actually uses e-ink of its entire screen. The Huis, or the Japanese version of the name Name is pronounced [UNKNOWN] is a product of a kind of internal think tank at Sony called First Flight where employees are encouraged to pitch ideas that could become real products. HUIS is the first product out of First Flight The E-Ink screen would be fully and truly customizable for each user. It would use much less battery over time, while still displaying your controls and potentially connect of internet of things devices in the future. The price? About 250 US dollars. Unfortunately, this remote is limited to Japan for now, so no word if we're actually gonna see this remote come to. Consumers here in the states. This thing is really cool and it shows another example of how e-ink is really in a revolution right now. We're seeing on shoes, we're seeing all kinds of stuff. I think it's awesome. I do too. And I think this is a great idea because universal remotes can't predict what type of devices you have, so to be able to customize buttons for every single thing you own is pretty amazing. So, what story should we talk about- HoloLens! I think we've got to talk about HoloLens. Man! AR. We talked a lot last week about VR- We did. But AR is sort of happening now as well and I think we should talk about it on Thursday. Well, if you guys want to get in the conversation, you can use the hashtag HEYTD over on Twitter. Yeah, just shout at us, using that hashtag on Twitter and then we'll incorporate the things you say on our Thursday episode. And with that being said, it's time for our phonetographer of the day. [MUSIC] Today's phonetographer of the day is Hari, who took this photo on their iPhone 5S. I hope I pronounced that name correctly. Hari wrote in and said hello TD. I clicked this photo from my iPhone 5S during one of the chilly mornings we had in Virginia during the month of February. You can see frosty snowflakes on my car window. I clicked it from inside the car. It's unedited. I hope you like it and include it in the phonetographer section on Tomorrow Daily, thanks, Hari. That is extraordinary. Look at that. Really, really artful picture I think. It's so cool. I just love the whole, all of the [UNKNOWN] and [UNKNOWN] and the trees are blurry. I mean this is such a rad picture, and high fives to you Hari. The only thing I don't understand Ashley is that February is cold? February is, well it's colder for us. It is, cuz it's 85 degrees outside right now. Now 110 which means it's cold? I don't know. I just don't understand that kind of world. You guys can send in your photography too. Just email us tomorrow@cnet.com. Yes, make sure you tell us what device you took it on and give us a little explanation of what the picture is. Tell us how to pronounce your name and also give us permission to use the photo on the show. You can also find us on social media. We're all over the shop. That is it for today's show. We'll be back tomorrow with a brand new docket of weird and wonderful science fact meets science fiction. But until then. Be good humans. Bye guys. [MUSIC]
