MIT's Materiable platform can mimic sand, rubber, water and more (Tomorrow Daily 362)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the internet welcome to tomorrow daily, the best feed talk show in the known universe, I'm Ashley Esqueda and Jeff Canada is at home after an eye doctor appointment in which his pupils were dilated Assuming all just means he's playing on charter four. So that being said, let's talk about the headline. MIT has added again after unveiling a platform that shapeshifts as you touch it. The name of the platform is Is materiable and it can mimic a variety of real world materials like sand, rubber, water, clay and more. A grid of 3D printed blocks act as individual sorts of pixels that can react to physical touch And computer software tells the blocks how to respond with chosen physics. You can see here how it reacts with ripples and other visuals as it's being used. MIT offers some interesting real world use cases in the video, including geoscientific models, education, medical exploration and even material interaction. Honestly though. I just want to throw bouncy balls against it. Like that one guy in the video. Because it looked really, really fun. All right guys. So now we've all seen Captain America Civil War. I think we can, as a collective, get excited about this super cool electromagnetic Cap shield. YouTube channel The Hacksmith. Decided they didn't just want a prop replica Captain America Shield. So they did what any team Cap loving fan would do. They added a pair of commercially available electro magnets to a gauntlet, which then allowed the hacksmith to attach and throw a Captain America shield from his forearm just like Steve Rogers. The electromagnets have the power to lift over 3000 lbs. But since their power decreases exponentially with distance, we won't exactly be seeing the shield fly from across the room to reattach itself to the Hacksmith's arm, but we can appreciate the work that went into the project so high five to the Hacksmith. If you guys want to talk about either subject, I'm gonna let you pick for this Thursday, Deep Dive Show. Use the #HEYTD, on Twitter, and whichever one gets the most comments and questions out of these two stories Stories we will discuss on Thursday's long show. We will also be welcoming the creator of Honest Trailers, some of our favorite videos on the internet. We will be welcoming the creator of Honest Trailers to the show on Thursday, so send in your questions as well. Now that being said, let's look at our photographers for the day. Our Phonetographer of the Day today is Nikola who sent in this photo that he took with a Moto G 2nd Gen. And Nikola write, hello the photo wind power shows a sunset over a field of rapeseed in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Taken with my Moto G 2nd Gen.

Khail Is doing great. I love this picture. It fits right in with our theme of spring. For the month of May, be sure to send in your photos. I'll tell you how in just a second. Khail is doing great at Yahoo. He also just launched a show with Michele Morrow, that he's co-hosting, called EndGame, on ComicConHQ, which, if you recall Our former guest, Riley Vanderbilt will also be doing a show on Comic-Con HQ. They just launched their beta, so you should definitely check out End Game and say hi to Kale while you're at it, we're very proud of him. If you guys want to send me your photography, you can email us tomorrow@cnet.com. Make sure you send in what device you took it with Give us permission to use the photo, tell us a little story about it, and of course, tell us how to pronounce your name if it is a difficult name to pronounce because we can barely read here.

I will have Jeff here hopefully if he can tear himself away from uncharted or his eyes are done dilating. I don't know. I don't think that's real. But he should be here tomorrow. And until then begin here. We'll see you guys next time. Bye. [MUSIC]
