Get your proton pack ready for a special 'Ghostbusters' VR experience (Tomorrow Daily 361)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings, citizens of the Internet. Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe, I'm Ashley Esqueda. And I'm Jeff Cannata and it's time for headlines. [MUSIC] Who are you going to call? You. The Void is expanding its hyper reality experience business into custom installations. And this morning it announced it would create Ghostbusters Dimensions. An experience designed to replicate much of the sights and sounds, From the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. You'll strap a pack on in real life that will turn into your proton pack and gun once you're inside the experience, and you'll spend your time investigating a ghost infested apartment with two other players. It will launch this July, alongside the film, at Madam Tuscode's in New York City. Which means, I will be buying a ticket to New York City. I want to do this more than anything I know, well the void we've talked about on the show before, and it's really exciting stuff, and I have seen people who have done previews of it, and it And they are really, they're converted when they come out. So I feel like I need to go experience it. I have a friend who said he experienced this. And he said it's the best VR experience he's ever had, so. Supposedly, there's one coming in Anaheim, so I think we need to Think we need to get down there. All right, that'll take me a lot of New York tripping. It'll save us a lot of cash. [LAUGH] For those of you who like to watch this show, you probably know that we love robots. But robots can be really difficult to get to walk on two legs without some assistance. But engineers at the University of Michigan are making algorithms that can help bipedal robots, particularly its Marlow robot, traverse terrain like, steep inclines, and even snow-covered ground. Marlow is a simpler robot than say Atlas. But a library of 15 different gates makes it possible for Marlo to adjust to differences on the ground without special sensors. The goal here would be to gain enough information to implement this technology into prosthetics to help amputees to walk completely normally. Without worrying about uneven terrain. That's crazy to me, 15 different gates but it doesn't sense which to use it just cycles through them. No I think they have actuators that can go laterally and also this way so it's like the robot can sort of figure out what exactly it needs based on these 15 different gates. I mean it looks, again it's a video, it looks ridiculous. Yeah. > This robot looks very stiff, but actually it's because it's a simple robot that it does really, really well in these tests. So, nice job guys. Kind of amazing. What do you want to talk about on Thursday? I have a feeling I know what. You wanna say. VR proton sex? I think we have to talk about this, Buster. Cuz we gotta talk about the void, I think we gotta talk about VR. I mean, this is one of our favorite topics to talk about. Yeah, I think it'd be fun. If you wanna participate in this discussion, I would love to know what you think the future of VR is, these big installation destination pieces or in the home? Which is gonna be the most prominent? That's a really good question, and if you wanna answer that you can use the hashtag HEYTD over on Twitter. Yeah, that's how you let us know you're talking about it, and we'll incorporate your Your discussion into our discussion on Thursday when we do our deep dive. Indeed. All right and that being said let's check out our phonetographer for the day. [MUSIC] This lovely picture was taken And by Mary using her Lumia 640. Yeah Mary wrote in and said hi Tomorrow Daily, love the show and it would be amazing to be featured on it. Especially because I love photography and would like to get my photos out there. My name is Mary and I'm from Yorkshire in England. Yorkshire, not Yorkshire. I give you permission to use my photo in your video. This is a photo of a dandelion which I found growing in my garden. I took it because I thought it looked very springy and it would go well with your theme. I took it on a Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE. I love this picture. This is beautiful. It almost looks like she holding a carousel. She's about to make a wish. That's what I see there. Beautiful photo. Beautiful. Pre-wish Mary. I love that shallow focus stuff. That's really cool. Me too. Me too. And my wish if I had a dandelion would be for you to submit your phone-tography to tomorrow@cnet.com. My wish would be for you to remember to tell us what device you took it on. To give us a pronunciation of your name if it's confusing, and to give us permission to use it on the show. We'd also like a little story as to why you took that picture. Yes or lots of different wishes, definitely more than one. Well, first I wish for more wishes. Okay. And then- And then I wish for all that. I got it, perfect. It's a compound wish. Also make sure you tell us which device you used to take your picture, because I love to know, that is it for today's show we will be back tomorrow with a brand new docket of science fact meeting science fiction and this week our deep dive show we have a very special guest one of the co-creators, or one of, is it the creator, the creator of honest trailers. Fun. So if you have questions about honest trailers Holler at us with #HeyTD. That is it! We will be back tomorrow, but until then. Be good humans. See you guys next time. Bye. [MUSIC]
