Pigeons wearing tiny backpacks are monitoring London's air quality (Tomorrow Daily 332)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings citizens of the internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the bestie talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda, Jeff Pineda is up at GDC checking out all the newest, latest, best things happening in video gaming. But for now, let's do some rapid fire headlines. Scientists over at the Mayo Clinic are testing an idea that could someday change the way spinal tumors are treated. The concept reminds us a little bit of those capsules that expand into spongy dinosaurs and stuff when you drop them into water. They consist of hydrogel bone graft made of a. Special polymer that expands into a custom shape once it's put in place. The graphs are bio-degradable, and meant to close gaps caused by spinal tumor removal in cancer patients. The researchers feel confident that they have the best composition of material for the graphs, and will likely begin cadaver trials Two. If the cadaver trials go well and the graphs prove to be able to hold the weight of the human body. Researchers think they can move onto human clinical trials within the next few years. Our next story is about air quality. If you live in London and you're wondering what the air quality is for the next few days. You might be able to find out from a few pigeons. This is the pigeon air patrol, a ten bird strong crew of domesticated raping pigeons. Their current mission is to fly around the neighborhoods in London, Equipped with tiny adorable backpacks that monitor the quality of air Londoners are breathing. They'll be spending the next few days flapping around town and the idea is to make air pollution problems more apparent to Londoners who might not be aware of how it impacts the city. You can actually follow the pigeons' air quality checks. On Twitter over at Pigeon Air. The next planned study involves giving devices that measures air quality to 100 people to carry around London, but honestly I think like the pigeon idea a little bit better. So, we're gonna talk about the pigeon idea on tomorrows Deep Dive when Jeff returns triumphantly from GDC. So if you wanna get in on that conversation, please feel free to jump in on Twitter and use the hashtag, #HEYTD. Talk about the show and all of the topics we're discussing and if we like your tweet we will include it in our long form episode tomorrow. Now that being said, let's check out our phonetographer of the day. [MUSIC] [NOISE] Our phonetogopher of the day today is, Cristian who took this amazing picture with his Galaxy S7 Edge He wrote to us and said, caught this hilarious picture of my English Bulldog yawning. I took it with my brand new Galaxy S7 Edge and would love if ya'll put it on the show, so that is Christian's English Bulldog. Unfortunately, Christian did not include the name of said English Bulldog, so I'm gonna name the dog. Pam. I don't know, that just seemed like the right name for that dog. It's totally not that name but, if you guys want to send in your photography to be considered fo the show, you can email us tomorrow@cnet.com.
