Culture
Greetings citizens of the Internet welcome to Tommorow Daily the best talk show in the known universe until August 18th upon which we will closing down shop. We will be shot into space And it's just, become one with the universe. We're gonna explore the galaxy, No Man's Sky comes out just at the right time for me to go explore the skies. I'm Ashley Esqueda. And I'm Jeff Cannata, we got your headlines coming right up. Starting with a story about taking care of seniors at senior living facilities. You know it takes a lot of staff to do that But what if robots did it? That's exactly what [UNKNOWN] SAM robot was created to do. He's a robot concierge made to check in on and provide non-medical care to patients living in longterm care locations. Off site care professionals use SAM To stop by rooms and video conference with patients to make sure they're okay. One robot can cover one floor of a location. And using a telepresence robot to perform these non-medical tasks helps lighten the load for often overworked staff on site. Giving them more time to perform necessary medical procedures. With a cost that's about a quarter of hiring a certified nursing assistant and an aging population that's facing a shortage of skilled workers as time goes on. This could be the beginning of a robotic staff in everyday life.>> I really love this idea.>> Do you? I'm a little worried about it to be honest.>> I do have concerns of older people with dementia maybe being afraid of the robot.>> It seems a little impersonal. I mean I understand that you have a telepresence so there a person there but. Grandma needs some actual person time. But here's the thing if you think about how overstaffed and how short staffed a lot of these facilities are they're actually just not getting any time at all. Yeah well makes a good point. At least you're able to check on them and make sure they're okay and Perhaps it could lead to more better care over all. I just worry about it feeling impersonal, especially to a generation that isn't used to dealing with technology. Soon robots will be our friends. When you and I are old- This'll be great. Robots will be our besties. We'll prefer it. We will absolutely. I'll be like, I don't wanna see a person. I'd rather have a robot. Sorry. Guys, I thought we could get away from the Pokemon Go! craze on this show. I was wrong, but I promise you this is pretty awesome. [INAUDIBLE] is back at it again. This time with a new technique that makes AR animation interact with and effect the real world. It's called Interactive Dynamic Video. Usually with AR if you want virtual objects to change real objects, you have to make a 3D model of a real object animate. This technology changes that by analysing tiny vibrations in objects to calculate how they would move in real life when manipulated And then it creates that reaction in a simulation. Not only is this awesome for the future of [UNKNOWN] and reality, it's also much cheaper and simpler than standard CGI so could be use in movies as a budget friendly options, or even use in infrastructure simulation of natural disasters. He analyzes tiny vibrations and things to see how they move? This video's amazing. That's crazy. I highly recommend just go, we have the credit. Go to the YouTube user that we post, and look at this video, and he explains it very well. It's really fascinating. It's super fascinating, and really inexpensive. And the way that they do this He used Pokemon Go as a way to get a little traction which worked. Sure, yeah. And this would be a way for videos to get cheaper cgi cheaper manipulation of actually real world objects, its The computational power required is a lot less than standard CGI. I mean, it's really amazing stuff. It's gonna change the world. Really quick, I tried the virtual spectator mode for Dota that just came out for the Vive. And it's amazing, and it makes me think that we're gonna get to a point where you'll be able to take an NFL game and they will be able to 3D model the players in real time. WIth multiple cameras, just mash it. And then I'll be able to just zoom around in my virtual reality in the same way I do [UNKNOWN]. Any game, yeah Isn't that amazing? I'm ready for that. I'm stoked. Based on their vibrations. Based on- Wow. Amazing. How they move and tiny vibrations in their body. Amazing stuff. That's it for our headlines. If you guys wanna talk about them to us on the Internet, you can use the hashtag heytd over on Twitter. Yeah, and you can also hang out with us on our personal Twitter handle @AshleyEsqueda. Yes. @JeffCannata. We love hearing from you, hearing feedback, but using that hashtag we know you're talking about our show. That's right. We don't have a long show this week. Today is in place of said long show, so we will just jump right into our phone talker for the day. [MUSIC] Our phonetographer of the day today is Brian, who shot this amazing shot on his iPhone 5S. Brian writes [INAUDIBLE] Anthem at US Airbase in Japan. Taken on iPhone 5S. Yes, you have my permission. Why the best? Great memories of the day>> I actually love this picture. I absolutely love his email. Yeah. It is Military precision. Yeah. He came in- Here's the data you need. Gave us what we wanted, and got out. The only thing that could have made it better is if after each sentence he wrote the word, stop. Stop. Yeah. As if it was an old-timey telegram. [UNKNOWN] iPhone 5S, stop. [LAUGH] I totally love it. It's a great picture- Great picture. And honestly, If I wanted to make a suggestion, it would be, now I'm really curious. I wanna hear bout what a great day it was. Yeah. I wanna hear about all the other stuff you did, besides visiting and taking this picture of you with this phantom. It's pretty amazing. All that information is classified. I'm sorry. Fair enough. That's fine. I won't ask anymore. [LAUGH] If you guys wanna send in your phonetography you got a couple weeks left to do it. You can email us the best The best picture you have ever taken. Yeah, we would love to see that. As we are ramping up to our last episode of Tomorrow Daily, we would love to see the best photo you have ever taken, most proud of. There are several things you need to include with that photo. Yes, first you email it to tomorrow@cnet.com. And in that email, you should include your picture for sure, but a pronunciation of your name if there is any chance we might mess it up... A story about your picture because, obviously, how can it be the best picture ever without a story. Right. You also need to give us permission to use your picture on the show because legal likes that and, lastly, make sure you tell us what device you took it on because one, I'm lazy and don't want to look up your exe data and two. Nice. I'm a nerd and like to know what kinds of devices you guys are using to take your pictures. Lazy nerds. Lazy nerds. [LAUGH] That is it for today's show. We will be back next week with a brand new docket of science facts and science fiction, and Angela Shift's SciFi Fact Sandwich. But until then- Be a good human. See you guys next time. Bye. [MUSIC]
