[MUSIC] Greeting citizens of the internet welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe. I'm Jeff [INAUDIBLE] And I'm Ashley Esqueda. This is one of our many episodes where every Monday and Wednesday we drop two future tech headlines on you. Kind of like home work Then on Thursday we deep dive into those stories of the week, as well as welcome a guest. It's a 45-minute extravaganza of awesome. Yes, well, now that we've laid all the rules out at your feet, let's check out today's headlines. [MUSIC] Seen an illegal drone flying around? Why not let a hexacopter shoot a net at it? Michigan Tech's human interactive robotics lab is showing off a sweet anti-drone system that they're referring to as robotic falconry. The idea is to send this predator drone out when an illegal drone is detected and when it is within 40 feet of its intended target. Shoot a net out and capture the bad drone. This drone catcher can fly around autonomously, manually piloted, or both, and the team has already filed a patent on the system. Ashley, are you ready for robotic falconry? [LAUGH] Irene who is not ready for robotic falconry? I say as long as the drone can return to my arm I am 100% in. The robotic falconer is my favorite super hero. [LAUGH] I'm gonna roll that the next time I play World of Warcraft. Yeah. The robotic falconer. Alright guys, we missed this story yesterday, but we definitely wanted to talk about it. Tesla just updated its cars with brand new summon feature. Accio Tesla. [LAUGH] The It went live over the weekend and is an expansion on the autopilot system for Tesla vehicles. The auto-park feature will even automatically open your garage door automatically, giving your Tesla a way to squeeze into a small garage without your help. And the summon feature I mentioned earlier will autonomously turn on the car and drive it to your location. Tesla says it wants its drivers to test out the feature on their own private property while they're near their car. And they are are insisting that drivers respect the beta phase of the summon function. Honestly we think that if people were abusing autopilot the day that it came out, I have a feeling that we are going to be seeing people using Summon out in public as soon as humanly possible, if not already. Yeah, if it's hey, please someone on your property, people gonna see like, how far can I go? Yeah, how far away can I go away and you have at the car comes to me. We would love to see your comments on these stories and you can tell us what you think about them by using our hashtag on Twitter. That's Hey TD. Yeah. You're are yelling at us, Hey TD. Hey TD. And on Thursday we'll take our favorite tweets and we will talk about them on our long form show when we deep dive in to our favorite subject of the week. So for now that's it for headlines. We'll check your phonetographer of the day. Today's phonetographer of the day is Bhanu, who took this on his iPhone 6 plus. Yeah, Bhanu wrote to us and said it's snowing in Salt Lake City and it's beautiful. Took picture by iPhone 6 Plus, have a nice day, regards, Bhanu. Bhanu, that is a super nice picture and also I feel like you are the cooler. Maybe slightly, evil, nefarious cousin of Bono. Yeah, he's the lead singer of U3. I love it. If you guys want to send in your phonetography you can email us tomorrow@cnet.com. We got all of our social median information right here right at the bottom of the screen for you. Please, please hang out with us on the internet because we love it. Yeah. [INAUDIBLE] are great. You can also find us individually on Twitter. We have that information as well. That is it for today's show. We are all good until tomorrow when we're gonna do two more [INAUDIBLE] headlines. We'll see you then. Until that time. [INAUDIBLE] See you guys next time. Bye. [MUSIC]
