NCIS: LA's tech tour

Culture
>>[background music] Everything in the Op Center seems to be totally visual and sometimes kind of hands on, I mean we might recognize this as kind of like a Google thing but it's really something more. What do you guys do with this? >>This is one of the technologies that we use that's just incredible. And what it is, it takes a flat, Google image or if we have different planes fly by it can take the series of images and create a 3D model out of it. The bonus out of it is they're all to scale and they're all just completely accurate. >>This is way more accurate than the Google Earth or the Google maps that I go to. [laughter] >>Absolutely, right >>These are actually correct distances, you could measure that. >>Exactly and it uses those images to make 3D models and then it skins those 3D models with the imagery that it used. So it's a great circular thing that it does and specifically here we're able to get camera angles you know because they'll just send some predator airplanes over just to get some nice, clean, accurate images and they can you know create a map and plan. >>So it's like being there without going there. >>Exactly >>That's pretty cool and kind of reduces some risks, until you really gotta put it on the line >>Right >>But at least you just do it once >>Right, it's as least risky as possible. >>Right, here's another example of this kind of thing. We're seeing, again this is a fly through of the kind of missions you guys would go on but so much more realistic then anything that we see currently on the internet. Do you think this kind of thing is coming to the average consumer, is this something that you think is on the cusp for everyday computing? >>Absolutely, I really do. You know, this is -- I think the advantage to this is that it's so accurate because you can create this now with Open Source software, at home today. It's just, the advantages to this, it's completely accurate and it can do an entire cityscape in a short amount of time, which you know if you do that yourself, hand modeling these, >>That's a lifetime. [laughter] >>Masterpiece right here, exactly. >>And the thing is people understand this because they got a taste of it in things like Google Earth or you know the Microsoft products that let you do this kind of thing. This is not uncommon as a concept but the level to which this is being done >>This is some very high level technology. This is incredibly high level technology. >>Let's go to this one here, this is the big Kahuna. As soon as you walk into the Op Center you go, woe, what is that? This is called the perceptive pixel screen. >>Absolutely and we just call it the wall sometimes on the show and all it is >>Look at that >>It's just like a giant iPhone where -- and the advantage to it, one of the great advantages, multiple people can use it at the same time. >>Okay so I can move this one and you can move another >>And at the same time we can control and manipulate it and >>That's no iPhone. [laughter] We can't do this on an iPhone, even if we fit. >>Right it is and it's just, it's incredible technology. >>So I can take an asset and I can send it over to you like this and say, check that thing out >>Right and then >>And you can send it over to me >>And I can send it right back and we can, you know, throw it to the front and back. And another use that we can see here underneath is we can take this, take a 3D model and manipulate it. We can sort of spin it around. >>Oh yeah >>So there are all kinds of uses other than you know entertainment. It's just a great way of getting information from imagery. >>Yeah to really visualize something and to examine the bad guys DNA or something, I mean [laughter] >>Right exactly. I mean, it's incredible and I forget the number of actual points that it can take at a time but it's in the thousands. You know if you need it you can several different people working >>The whole team can get up here and work on different things at once. >>We have a few episodes where we have you know three or four people all on here you know collaborating on trying to find the bad guy. >>Now touch screens have never really been totally mainstream on a computer. Most people who've got a laptop or a desktop, they don't have a touch screen for the most part. They've got a mouse and a keyboard, when is this gonna break through do you think and really become the way we compute because we're not there yet. Do you think it's gonna happen or do you think this is really gonna kinda gonna remain in specialized applications like this? >>It's gonna take a little bit of time but I think eventually when the cost comes down and then when people see the benefit of it that it will slowly become available to more and more consumers, which I mean I would like to have one of these at home. I don't know about you. >>I can't believe you don't. [laughter] We're hearing that for the first time right now. Maybe we shouldn't tell anybody. >>I'm working on it though. >>[laughter] I bet you are. [background music] Yeah, I bet you are.
