Amazon Jeff Basil launched a rocket and Elon Musk wants to revolutionize how ou use power in your home.
And it's May 4th so we gotta talk about brand new Star Wars stuff.
It's Tomorrow da.
Greetings citizens of the internet
Welcome to Tomorrow Daily the best [UNKNOWN] talk show in the known universe.
I am Ashley Esqueda and joining me as always the best lifesaver mime in the known universe just like the show Khail Anonymous.
Hey how's it going?
We've been geeking out all morning.
All right, we, we're not gonna get to talk about it but there was a Suicide Squad image that came out.
Go look for that.
I'm sorry that we don't have the story.
Go find that.
We can't talk about it because of Star Wars.
And then these crazy stories that you have
Yes there's a lot of
There's a lot of insane things going on right now so lets not waste any more time with this headline
May the 4th be with you
Oh and with you always
So, it's May 4th.
May the 4th is happening right now.
It's Star Wars day and now it's an official thing.
This is an official Star Wars thing.
Now I feel like Disney took it on and it's like, it's officially Star Wars day, everybody starts selling official Star Wars merchandise.
But more importantly, today we got some really great reveals.
from Star Wars Episode 7, these are, they're images and also a news article that came out in Vanity Fair, of all places.
I'm so excited.
So here is the cover.
We get to see some of the cast.
We get to see, Chewbacca, Hans Solo.
Chewbacca has not aged a day.
No, no, look at him
Let's all be honest here.
No, he looks like he's on heart beat or tiger beat.
Yeah, he's on chu, he's on wookie beat.
Wookie beat magazine.
So, let's talk about the reveals that we got to see.
First off, here check this out.
This is a stitched together picture of all of these,like, crazy,uh,like, critters and, like, aliens that are going to be in there..
[CROSSTALK] All practical, which is exciting.
Like, from a Star Wars stand point, its not CG.
Theres no JarJar Binks in there.
So that is are, that's our first photo, like, what it's going to look like.
What a set piece looks like.
Oh, look at this heroic Oscar Issac picture.
[CROSSTALK] He is the he Po Damron right?
Po Damron, this is my man crush Monday.
So that's a reveal, kind of, without his helmet.
I don't think we see him without his helmet.
Okay what else we got next.
What else we got?
Oh, my favorite.
Yeah, so I don't know how to pronounce her neame.>> Lupita Nyong'o.
Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o.
She's playing a CGI character named Amaz Kanata.
And it's going to be CG and she's also a space pirate.
Which, I can now die happy because one, I love her, she's an amazing actress.
And two, Lupita Nyong'o as a space pirate is pretty much the epitome of all my dreams in life.
This is literally, I mea, no better character I could imagine her as and I can't wait to see what her [UNKNOWN]
What her alien actually looks like.
Look at all those dots on her face, it's going to be so detailed.>> But no reveals for that.
Again this set photo,that's,uh, that's not Kilo Redding>> That's not Jakau, this is, Ray.
Yeah, there's Ray on her little speeder.
This is,uh, it's not tattooing.>> Jakau, it's Jakau>> Is that the name of a planet?>> [CROSSTALK]
And, and, and I like that these characters sort of remind me of Tuscan raider's.
They're kind of like sand people but not quite.
Either way, all the practical effects look amazing.
Okay, next photo.
Okay there it is.
Okay so this is a big reveal in my opinion which is the character Kilo Rein and this is Adam Driver.
This is, The villain that we see with the weird red lightsaber that has like the three points and.
Also he has the mask on.
But he is actually, this is apparently his secret hideout.
Which is on a frozen planet.
Could be Hoth, might not be.
Could not be.
Maybe it's a misdirect, like we all thought the [UNKNOWN] was Tatooine?
We all thought it was Tatooine.
Now maybe this is Hoth, maybe it isn't.
But this is our first image of him and actually our big reveal that he is playing the villain.
I'm so excited about this.
He looks terrifying.
Yeah, and then the brain trusts are saying
JJ Abrams, [CROSSTALK] Kathleen Kennedy, composer god, his name is slipping.
Yeah, so it's pretty cool.
John Williams is just going to be known forever as, like, the themes from his movies.
He's just going to change his name to song.
Someone's like" What's your name?" And he's like
His wife has to do that every time she calls him to dinner.
Every time, she's like hey, listen dinner's ready.
So there you go, again if you pick up the issue of Vanity Fair, I think it's coming out next week.
Next, it's the 12th and if you have a digital subscription it's the seventh.
So it'll be out this fall.
Don't wanna crack into it, but there's some really great quotes that are out, including one where JJ Abrams reveals that he kind of wanted to put a dead Jar Jar in the movie?
He wanted to put his bones in there.
And, a lot of other really great quotes, so go check, go check that out.
Hopefully, you get the chance.
We're gonna, I'm gonna buy it.
I am going to buy that, yeah 100%, Yeah, I just am trying to decide if I want it on the iPad, or if I want an actual physical copy, because I feel like having a physical copy would be more fun.
You can like look at all the layouts and stuff, so I might get an actual [UNKNOWN]
But, guess what/ Ashley?
That's our, that's our hashtag of the day.
So it is a #TDFORCE.
Use the force.
What is our, what do we wanna know?
We wanna know what plotline do you want to see in the new Star Wars movie.
Like, what is it?
What's the, what's the [INAUDIBLE] it doesn't have to be a main storyline either.
It can be anything.
Like BB8 invents I don't know, like Fried chicken and waffles in the Star Wars universe.
Whatever it is, like I want to know what plot line you want to see in the Force Awakens.
Here's what I want to see.
I want to see Leia use the force.
You want to see Leia use the, that's a good one.
I want to, I want Leia to like, just, even if it's because I know shes not going to be like a hero of the movie, even if she's like
Like force, you know, mind control somebody.
Or just like, like move something to somewhere else.
Like, even just a small thing will set me off.
I'll be great.
I really like that.
What do you want, you want some
Wookie battle you wanna?
I would like to see Chewbacca actually rip the arms off somebody after losing at holo-chess.
Like to see that.
And and then I, as a secondary I would also really like to see Lapuiago's Character, the space pirate, have a, I would like to see her fly the Millennium Falcon.
So you want a, you want a space CGC pirate.
And maybe, and maybe I'd like to see Hans Solo pass the Millennium Falcon down to her.
Give it to her.
Cause she's a space pirate.
Kind of roguish, maybe.
Just like Hans Solo?
I might want to see that, that's all I'm saying.
[CROSSTALK] Maybe Episode I.
[UNKNOWN] are good.
So, TDForce, tell us what you want to see in Star Wars Episode VII.
Now some, other crazy, spacey, [CROSSTALK] futuristic.
Some space things that are happening in real life.
This is crazy future stuff.
Okay, so Amazon did, is doing what?
Okay, well first I have to tell you about Powerwall.
So Amazon will be the last one.
So Powerwall is Elon Musk's new crazy idea, like, he's always had these great ideas But it's actually not so crazy.
Always something new.
It's pretty impressive.
So last week on thursday, Elon Musk announced PowerWall.
So there it is.
You can see, it's like a little sort of unit that mounts on your wall in your house.
And what this is, is a battery back up product.
And so you mount this on your house.
There's one for houses, and one for industrial use.
And what it says is, you have solar panels on your house.
It stores electricity from those solar panels.
So there, see, you can see, oh look, it's like filling up.
And then so it'll fill those up during non-peak hours so at maybe like, you know, later in the day or earlier in the morning, you get sun, it'll fill this up.
And then during peak hours when people use the most electricity Your house will draw power from that pack from, from power from power wall.
So that way you're not paying as much because obviously during peak hours, that's when you rates are the highest.
And then on top of that, it would help during a blackout or a lot of times in California when it gets really, really hot we have rolling blackouts cause the state, the grid cannot handle.
Everybody running their air conditioning.
Well this would sort of alleviate some of those problems.
Especially, and also potentially bring, this type of technology.
Electricity, in almost a generator kind of sense, to maybe emerging markets in the future.
So this might be something that, a less developed home might be able to have, going.
You know, at some point in the future.
Obviously this is going to be really expensive at first.
But in the future, we might be able to see people have electricity a little bit more consistent way.
In more developing countries.
So pretty cool stuff.
There's no reason not to use solar energy.
I would, I would, Elon.
I know you're watching.
Clearly a huge fan of the show.
I would suggest maybe doing some starter demos and like have some people enter a contest and maybe some lower income housing, they get it first.
That'd be awesome.
So they can try it out, they'll get to save money.
You'll get to have some good pr on your hands and also you know, try it out.>>So I didn't know a lot about solar power and how people sort of use it.
I guess one of the things is that's kind of problematic is when you have, excuse me sol Solar panels.
A lot of times they will sell that extra energy that excess energy back to the power company.
For, for like a wholesale rate.
But then it gets sold back to people at, at retail cost.
Which is not really efficient.
And the other thing is, like, they're kind of looking at, again, cut out that middleman.
So this is a really interesting.
It's like a bank.
It saves it rather than giving it back.
Yeah, you're banking energy for when you need it the most which is either when your power goes out, or during peak hours.
Which is pretty cool.
Certified installers are going to be able to buy these.
There are two different versions, there's a seven and a ten kilowatt hour version.
And there'll be $33500 for installers to buy and then, of course, you go to a certified installer and say "I'd like to have this in my house" and so they would put it in your house.
I don't know, I think that is not including the cost of [UNKNOWN].
Solar put in your house kind of a big deal but of course you get like you get rebates from and things like that from the government and for you know doing putting putting your house in sort of a green energy state.
So that's helpful.
There are open source patents once again open source so anyone can improve upon this technology just like Tesla released the patents for their their cars their electric cars.
And some day maybe homes with solar panels would be grid-independent.
They would not need the grid.
That would be amazing.
It should be pretty cool.
So, limited production later this year and then as soon as their giant like gigawatt battery factory or whatever it is in Nevada opens up they'll go into like full production mode next year.
Okay so tell me about Amazon please.
It's not quite Amazon, it's just the co-founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos.
Yeah that counts for me.
Is, he was in the news this last week.
Unfortunately, I wish I could tell you they were launching Amazon space, where they like deliver like two day prime to the ISS but.
No it just takes longer, they send your package to space and it takes longer to get to you.
SO he announce last week that his space flight company, which, I didn't know he had a space flight company.
I don't think anybody really did.
Blue origin is his space flight company.
They have completed their first space flight test with a new space vehicle, which you're seeing on the screen right now called New Shepherd.
This spacecraft is attempting to do the same thing SpaceX is trying to do with it's Dragon Rockets.
So, they're trying to create a reusable rocket.
They wanna be able to land these things and relaunch them, which is pretty interesting.
It carries up to six people.
Its first test flight was last week.
And everything went according to plan, except for the landing.
Which, of course, the rocket crashed.
So it didn't quite make it.
It didn't quite make it really in there.
That sucks we want this to work out.
I know it sucks, but I love Jeff Basos really trying to like, spin it in a positive way.
And he was like, if this were a traditional mission, it would have been a rousing success, because, you know, rockets crash at the end of traditional mission and they're trying to make this reusable.
So everything else went according to plan but unfortunately, the landing did not.
But they want to fly it again soon.
They said that they are making more propulsion modules as we speak, and as soon as that's ready they'll be able to try again.
And they want to do test flights every single month for the next couple of years.
Who do you think is gonna get there first?
Do you think Blue Origin is gonna get there first, or you think Elon Musk is gonna get there or Space X?
I think it's gonna be, I think it's gonna be Space X.
You think space X?
I'll tell you what, you take SpaceX, and I'll take.
I'll take Blue Origin.
And not because I believe that SpaceX isn't going to make it.
I just think we need to split this down the center.
Yeah, I'm going to give you a piece of information that might, you actually might feel excited about.
That might help your cause.
Blue Origin is thinking about using a particular type of.
Kind of re-usable where, what's the best way to describe this?
They would actually, like, catch it in mid-air and instead of trying to land it, they would, like, kind of catch it in mid-air and attach a parachute.
I was reading, it was super vague the way that they described it.
There is some mid-air reusable theory that they're going to try to do at some point.
I don't know if it's with this particular rocket, I don't think it is.
But there's some technology that they're considering with some new, I think, engine that they want to do sort of mid air rescues of like these rockets as they come back down, as opposed to trying to land them vertically onto terra firma.
So, that might help your cause.
Maybe it'll help your cause.
So, blurgen Baysacks.
Let's do this.
But that's it for the news.
That's it for the headlines.
We will be right back with a, [LAUGH] with a VR headset that might add a few more senses to your Virtual Reality experience.
And, of course, your TD cat user feedback, which is amazing and our phone talker for the day.
So don't click yet, smart daily.
But before we go, check out this Labyrinth coffee table.
Welcome back to the show.
It's a Monday.
Which means it's time to take a look at a crowdfunding effort and decide whether or not we'd give it our money Time for back it or hack it.
We've all seen tumblers of like people using [UNKNOWN] People using vr headsets.
There you go.
That's, that's the look.
Yep, that's the one.
It's really great.
Do it one more time.
There we go.
I just wanted to make sure people had that for a gift.
That face is glorious.
So if you haven't felt ridiculous using an Occulus Rift, or any other VR headset.
Both of us.
This is going to add to that.
Because this is the feelreal VR mask.
And this thing attaches via
Don't say your mouth.
Via magnet to the bottom half of your face.
and add wind heat smell, water mist and vibration to your VR experience.
It is very weird.
Hot air and cool air, blow.
It makes you look like a super villain in today's show.
You look like you're in Daft punk actually there's a whole helmet.
Oh my God.
We'll get to that.
So it uses batteries that connects to your computer via bluetooth.
There's a microphone in it.
It has removable smell cartridges, up to seven.
Yep, there they are.
They're smell cartridges so you can put out like coffee or like other Weird smell.
There's an, a, what they're calling an easy SDK for developers to integrate this headset into their games and apps.
They're saying that it will only take a few clicks, like any old, you know, be able to put it in there.
They work with actual perfume, like in scent companies to get these cartridges right, apparently, like this is sort of a thing.
And then also they have some software called the FeelReal Player, which will let you open up a movie and your own FeelReal VR effect to film.
So, you can wear like the mask or whatever and go, oh, yeah, this is where I was up in Big Sur and I, smells like pine here.
So, I'm gonna pine scent.
Okay, so, here's the vert headset The vert headset you put your phone in there and, this is sort of the top of the line model.
It has, 3D video, it has a micro projector inside.
A little micro projector.
I mean, it's a little bit insane.
I'm down with the full helmet.
Down with the full helmet, okay.
So there's actually multiple products in this Kickstarter.
So there's the mask, which is the base thing.
And then there is a helmet, which is the full experience.
And then vert is the top end model, with this like micro projector in it.
Yeah, that's that's happening.
Okay, so can we, can we go to cost now.
So that's a Kickstarter.
Or like how much you have to donate to get it.
They want $50,000.
Which isn't bad.
Not a lot of money.
Currently, as I'm looking at it on the website, they have $8,802.
We have 23 days left, maybe.
K, starting off if you want the consumer version, the early consumer version of the mask, so not a dev kit, early consumer version, it is $300, ok.
And it comes with a charging, docking station, a demo, the feel real player and 3D game with all the effects.
Wait, what's with the sexy image?
Yeah, there's a lot of that in that.
Okay, continue, sorry.
If you would like the helmet, the early consumer version of the helmet, docking station, a demo, Feel Real player and and 3D game with all effects, that is $600.
And if you would like the special edition VIP consumer version of the [UNKNOWN] helmet, which is the one with the
Micro projector, and it'll have your engraved name in it, it's special like matte black and red design and stuff.
Estimated delivery, by the way, October 2015, let's keep in mind that Occulus Rift is not even available right now, and may not be until next.
Next year we don't even know if Oculus is gonna be ready to release the Rift in 2015 we have no idea.
Hololens says this year we still don't know, theres no release date for anything except smartphones so just as an FYI this says October 2015 and we don't know when anything else any other major headset is getting released
So go ahead.
I love, I love the RNAR.
And I love the idea of it pushing to further immersion.
And I love that these guys are doing that.
Microphone, the audio.
There's still so many.
There's but, there's so many hurdles we have to overcome before we need smell.
Like, we need to get 360 sound, which we're still working on.
We need to get the actual feeling of immersion
I've never been like, I wanna, yeah but I never get excited about smells.
I don't think I wanna smell like the Hulk.
I never get excited about smells.
And the Avengers, like, I don't wanna smell like the Hulk buster site, I don't, that's like charred bodies.
And the Hulk is probably not, he doesn't seem like he'd smell very good and then it's like metal and burning and lasers like I don't want to smell that I don't want to smell that
I like the idea that but the thing that I said was the idea of going the full helmet
Where it starts controlling everything around you.
Because you have the VR headset on you can feel the whatever
Yeah have you're phone in there whatever
You can have the helmet and it blows on your hair if you're like sailing through the air that's kind of cool.
Okay, so i say, ergh!
It's only fifty thousand they want?
They only want fifty thousand, they're not even at ten.
They have twenty-three days left and they want at least three hundred dollars just for the lower mask and six hundred for the full facemask.
I don't hack it.
Wait I wanna hack it, can I go middle ground?
Can you say, tentatively placed on hold, like support placed on hold until further notice?
Like I'm just, I'm gonna cautiously watch from a distance.
I see, ok.
So not hack it but just, maybe a little, we'll just, keep a barrier there.
I think I'm the same Actually I'm going to say no like I'm going to say I'm out, I don't I don't need this.
I mean Listen guys I'm all about smell-o-vision and weird like 1950's B movie technology made into like futuristic technology but I I I don't there's so many Situations in games and movies that I feel I do not want to smell not even that I, would be interested in wouldn't like it, but just I I don't I don't want to be there like I don't want to be in those sit I don't want to be placed even further in those situations I think it would be gross like if you did a Jurassic World one you'd smell dinosaur poop probably a lot Probably went straight to poop, but yeah.
But I say, look at this Jurassic World, I mean that would be like one of the top smells in that park.
Am I right?
Because they are giant creatures.
Probably, dead carcases, I don't know why you went straight to poop.
Carcasses, pooh, like you would not want, even going to see, let me explain it this way.
You go to Sea World and there's not a lot of good smells there, you go to any zoo,.
Yeah, but it's like.
It's fish, it's not poop.
But in any zoo, there's no a lot of good smells there.
Wait, wait, wait.
So as we, as she goes, "well if I'm going to try a VR headset, and it's going to have smell-o-vision, definitely going to smell poop".
Because you were like [CROSSTALK] if I experience Hulk, it'd smell Hulk poop.
No, I'm saying he would be stinky.
He'd probably smell like wet, it's just mostly.
It seems like he lived.
That's what I'm saying, saying to you.
What if you went to like a simulation where you're flying through the air, or you know.
Like soaring over California in Disneyland, great, sign me up.
But then you fly over poop.
But then what if you fly over a cow farm?
That's what I'm saying.
Sometimes, smell o vision is not a thing I need in my future technology.
It's a fun thing, that's all.
That's my final word on that.
But yeah, it's called the feelreal, it's all one word, feelreal virtual reality mask and helmet.
You probably don't smell poop, but there it is.
probably not, but you know what, I bet you someone will make a cartridge for it.
So that does come to market, so.
And you can probably prank your friends.
Yes, very true.
Speaking of friends, we have friends, it's you guys.
So it's time for user feedback.
Last week we talked about that really awesome tattoo that came to life, the AR tattoo, remember that?
Yeah, that was really cool.
Too Su, the com creator for modern [INAUDIBLE] ok.
So we asked you guys to use the hashtag #tdtat to tell us what tattoo you would get and how it would come to life.
Do not disappoint as always.
Aiden wrote in said I would get Pikachu from Pokemon doing thundershock or a wand from Harry Potter illuminating.
That's Very cool
Neil wrote in and said hololens with tattoos and have 2D retro platformers with levels based on your body hash tag pants must be worn, hash tag TDTat
Joseph wrote in and said, I would get a QR code so that if I had to go to the hospital and was unresponsive, they could scan the code and pull up my info.
That's actually, it's not a thing but it is something people have talked about.
Is, the these sort of, these little, kind of like medical code that you'd be able to scan in and then if something happened to you they'd be able to sort of tap in to it in case of emergency first thing.
But I think the big thing is, is like, if you were walking around with a tattoo you wouldn't want other people to scan it and get that info, so, kind of, but, but I totally know what you're talking about.
It's a good idea.
Daniel wrote in and said I would have a tattoo where it's is 8-bit Mario but I can play the game by holding it up to an app.
Little 8-bit Mario that comes to life.
And then ultrasoup wrote in and said, my TDTat would be shaped like Shrek and when I unlocked my phone with it, the phone would say, it's all ogre now.
[LAUGH] Shrek is
I like it.
Then we got a couple emails.
Rob said, I'd get the Star Wars logo tattoo including a space sleeve, and when I wave the phone over the logo, X-Wings would fly out and shoot tie fighters and lead up to the blowing up of the Death Star.
All this is happening while the space animated in the background an Star Wars theme played.
That is intense.
That's like a living sleeve.
You're going to get sued.
The illustrated man, yeah.
You're going to get a C&D.
No, it's, that's a good idea.
Then Nick wrote in, said "Hi Khail and Ashley." That's the guy that wrote in the Konam email.
He said, "I promise I'll keep it short this time.
A tatoo of a small train on my wrist with AR the train would come to life and chug its up my arm and down the other.
My hometown is famous for trains, so it would be like having a little piece of home with me wherever I go." And then the second one was, a wolf on my leg.
When viewed with AR the wolf would come to life and do my bidding similar to Tattoo from the movie Electra.
At home he could terrorize my cat assum, assuming they invent felar, feline AR devices.
I smell a Kickstarter opportunity.
And away from home he could be sort of a body guard.
He probably wouldn't be too effective but hey, if he starts growling I would know I need to start running.
"Keep up the good work.
Negative 500 points for Elektra reference.
Elektra reference, and
I know exactly what scene he's talking about, but
Now I remember Elektra.
Plus a thousand points for AR goggles for cats.
Is that what he said?
Well he said, assuming they invent feline AR devices I smell a Kickstarter opportunity, I feel like maybe AR headsets for cats may be a thing.
They were never really out to play, then.
They could just give them, like, augmented reality ball of twine, or a laser pointer they could chase anytime.
There you go.
What a use of money, huh?
AR goggles for your cat?
[LAUGH] Here, here's a shot of turbulence.
Talk about first-world problems.
Go check Netflix.
My cat, I don't have time to play with it.
I gotta buy it an AR headset.
That, that image
Just sounds really cool though.
I'd love to see a vision [UNKNOWN].
That'd be pretty awesome.
Little Iron Man cat.
[LAUGH] Iron Man cat.
Pew pew pew pew.
Alright guys, we got to talk about our last PC user feedback.
Which is always our phonetographer of the day.
Previously, on this sentence.
Pin wrote in, our friend Pin.
Oh yeah, Pin.
Wrote in and says "Hey Ashley and Kale, I was in Baltimore.
As I was running errands around town after the Freddy Gray protests and riots, I took pictures of Baltimore to post on Facebook, to show that outside of the riot area, Baltimore is still very much beautiful.
As I was shooting the baseball game with the city skyline backdrop, I looked down and saw these flowers.
Do you think this photo is phonetography of the day worthy material?
Feel free to check out the other pictures of Baltimore there, all taken with my one plus one.
So, I thought this was great; to nice show solidarity with your city, pin.
LIke, you're saying, hey listen, man, sometimes bad stuff happens, but you know what?
Baltimore is still beautiful, and I have the picture to prove it.
And I really liked this, I thought it was a nice composition.
It's nice, brightly colored.
Also, you probably picked this photo because we have a drought, and nothing is green here in California.
So, that looks beautiful to us.
You guys are, you guys are.
So many ways.
The background, this very nice hillscape, that's actually just what California looks like.
There's nothing there and just kind of pixels and some polygonal.
No life, no humans, we're just stuck in here.
We're the only two humans left in California actually.
I'm pretty sure Logan of course, but he's a sentient clone, remember we put him in clothes?
Beep, there you go.
There's your answer.
You guys can email us.
You can email us your phonetograpy.
You can email us story ideas.
You can email us, I don't know.
If you have questions, if you need advice.
Who you ask to prom, we'll tell you.
I don't know.
Email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
