Tomorrow Daily 108: A drone dance, 'WTF of CES 2015' with Sourcefed's Trisha Hershberger and more
On today's show, we tell you our favorite stuff at day two of CES 2015.
Also a magic mirror that can make you look like anyone you want.
And a very special live report from the show floor.
It does not involve spiders.
Oh thank God.
It's tomorrow daily.
Greetings, citizens of the internet.
Welcome to Tomorrow Daily.
I know you got really into clapping.
Great, really into clapping.
Welcome to Tomorrow Daily.
The best geek talk show in the known universe.
You are here at the 2015.
We're still alive.
I feel like that's, that's a win.
That we can just chalk that right into the win column right away.
This, I'm just actually a 3D printed version of myself.
I couldn't even like.
We just printed out [INAUDIBLE]
1.0 is gone so.
[INAUDIBLE] Tech West, they're doing some amazing things with 3D printing you guys.
We, our sponsor this week is LG and we a G Flex 2 that they were kind enough to loan us and Khail took it last night to the C, the CNET party.
Who knows if I was supposed to do that, but I got some really great photos, like I spent a lot of time doing, they have like this unique selfie thing where you do this.
And you do that and.
And then it caps down.
The photo would take was of people shocked at that how you take the photo.
Yeah, they were just like oh.
Yeah but it was good.
The slow mo, Snoop Dog down.
Dancing around so.
I think Snoop actually.
Just moves permanently.
There you go.
In slow motion.
Like I just think that's the thing.
So, I don't know, I don't know how effective it would be but it's a really cool phone, you can check it out, head over to CNET.com for all of our coverage of the, of the G Flex and thanks again to LG for loaning us this delightful little device.
I also have the G3, that's pretty cool as well.
You might get it back!
You might get it back.
So, we've got some great things and we wanna jump right into it, so, let's hit the headlines
So we wanna talk about a couple of our favorite things that we've seen around the show floor.
We're all about the weird, wacky, wonderful of CES 2015.
And and today is no different than yesterday.
You have really kinda seen some crazy stuff.
You've been over at Tech West.
Oh man, I love Tech West.
That's where, that's where all the, the wackos come out to play.
So, I skipped lunch.
So I decided to go with a throat, a 3D food printing, that's kinda like a new thing that's, that's coming around.
It's one of my favorite 3D printing things.
So it's like, I feel like I've seen everybody's 3D print everything.
Candy and chocolate so they have a, yeah over there they have a, something called chef jet something that makes candy pastries, a candy and pastries.
And yeah look at that.
This is little geometric, cubed candies.
little tiny candies in any shape you want.
Really interesting stuff and really precise.
Very precise, and then they have the cocoa jet printer which can print chocolate, which is, was.
Oh, chocolate printing.
This is my whole life.
Yeah, I'm shooting an evening on the, on the space station.
Yeah and then they're actually partnered with Hershey's.
So like it's actually like a serious thing, and the, for the, for the chef jet, the candy one.
That's gonna be available this year.
Well if you're looking to get your.
So you can start printing out some candy.
Your candy printing on.
And the, and then of course they also have a whole bunch more over there.
They have a three printer that can that uses recycled plastic which I thought was amazing.
And then also a haptic 3D like pen that you use with Oculus.
But I focused on the food.
Because I'm excited about that.
Only focus on the food there, you guys.
Always focus on the food.
No pizza 3D printer yet.
But we're waiting for that.
Make it P.S.
I'm just going to wait here till then.
So for me, I really liked we saw this a couple night's ago: Pet Cube.
I'm all about Pet Cube.
I just got a new puppy.
I'm going to brag a little, he's adorable.
And, we saw pet cube
Do we have [UNKNOWN] roll of the puppy?
I think, well, not of the puppy, no, if you want to see it after the show I'll show you pictures of my dog.
but, pet cube is really really cool.
It's a, it's a little cube and it allows you to keep an eye, it's like a home little camera that you can connect to with an app, you can see here it is right here, it's not very big, but the best thing about it, and this is the thing [UNKNOWN] and I really like.
Is that it has this app attached to it, and what they showed us was you're able to actually play with your pets with a laser pointer that's built in.
So you can see they're doing it right now.
They're dragging a finger around everything.
And that's a sh, that's an animal shelter.
Yeah, in Oakland.
I was playing with cats in Oakland.
The dream is real people.
Playing with cats though, the dream is alive.
Alive and well my friends.
But don't for owners that can't be home and if they are.
Gone for prolonged times, they can play with their cats or even get fed.
Or even if, you know, you're at work and you wanna just like check in on your pet, and you wanna play with them a little bit, for, you know, on your break, take a little five minute break, play with your pet, and then you know, like okay, it's getting, getting.
It was about 200 bucks.
And this was actually a successful Kickstarter too, so.
Yeah, successful Kickstarter, so I, I really like seeing these Kickstarter and Crowdfund success stories.
It's always really nice to see here at the show.
It would work on me too by the way.
If you put one of those up and you put the laser pointer and [CROSSTALK]
I do do it in the back of the stage, back stage all the time.
If I ever need to keep Kale busy I just put a laser pointer on the ground, it's great.
So tell me a little bit about this magic mirror because we saw some of it, we covered it and we're, this, this is hilarious.
Okay so Panasonic's AR makeup mirror.
It, it's one of those exhibits where everybody is like, gathered around it, cuz it's like one of those, like wow things.
Lot of crowd.
You sit down and then they put any number of makeup.
It tracks your face and it puts the, oh yeah here we go, and we have Sarah here, and and they put any, you know, eye shadow, and they put eyelashes, and lipstick, and blush, and just whatever you, you, whatever you can think of.
Another important thing that it does is it can actually check your skin out and see, like, if, you know, if it's dry.
How horrible you look.
If you need to be drinking more water.
If you've got too many wrinkles.
You can get a moustache like Sarah.
I can finally grow a moustache.
So you can see what you look like with facial hair.
I was thinking was thinking about getting the Walter White.
Yeah, like the Heisenberg?
I need some more commanding.
Yeah, the Heisenberg.
I like it.
And then also another cool feature, that you went, ooh, at when you heard it was.
You can change the light.
So it can be like, fluorescent or like blue or whatever.
So you, after you put the makeup on, you can see, you know, what it looks like.
Like, how, how terrible you look in fluorescent light.
Look, I was thrilled by that.
And I never wear makeup except for, like right now.
I'm wearing makeup right now.
You are wearing a pound of makeup right now.
But I thought that was pretty cool.
They're, they're hoping to, it's actually available now.
This isn't like.
Okay, for like salons and higher.
Yes, are hoping to get that upper.
But it's, it's really cool to be able to just see it, without having to put it on.
Especially if you're terrible at makeup.
So one of the other things that I saw, there's a lot of interesting things going with connected cars.
Hold on, no wait, eye piece of this side.
Oh, we're getting word that we actually have some.
Some, some dancers wearing no clothing on the floor and we're gonna go straight to that.
In south hall.
We have Jeff Bakalar on the scene you guys.
We have Jeff Bakalar on the scene.
I can't wait to see this.
We have dancers with no.
Look, he's surprised too.
He is shocked.
He looks a little scared.
All right, [INAUDIBLE] I know, he's really excited.
Jeff said, Jeff is a happy man.
Jeff is a very happy man.
We're we're hoping
Hey, everybody guess what's happening, we're about ready for the five minute ritual of the dancing drones, I'm told it's a complexor team.
And you know, this is really, this is really what every.
Like every baby drone dreams of when they're a kid.
To make it to the big stage.
Las Vegas, the big show.
That's how you know you've made it.
And we're just patiently waiting for the drones.
There there a little prima donnaish.
They have their riders, they have to fit.
Apparently one of them stormed off in a big huff.
But it's ok they composed themselves and they're apparently, are we almost ready?
We're patiently waiting for the drone show.
It's a complex routine.
This is something these guys studied for a very long time.
Do we have curtains raising?
A little anti-climactic here but not a problem.
We're making it work.
I'm told this, this netting here is reinforced.
Because god forbid, let me tell you guys, god forbid a hole were to somehow-
Erupt within these nets.
Oh, here we go.
Oh my gosh.
If a hole were to somehow erupt in these nets.
The scent of freedom would just be, just be too much for these guys.
And out they go through the net.
There they go.
Luckily, I'm told the, the Parrot employees here are armed with shotguns, and they'll just shoot one of these little bastards out of the sky if they, ,.
That they act-up [LAUGH] is what I'm told.
Safety first here.
Always safety first.
It's a complex routine.
Nerve's are running wild.
Clearly holding nothing back.
It's a big crowd pleaser here.
[LAUGH] A big crowd pleaser here at CES.
The attending audience or as they like to be referred to as.
I'm told that's what they're called, drone pervs.
A big crowd pleaser here at the big show in Las Vegas.
When you wanna compete, when you wanna make a difference and you're a drone, you come to Las Vegas.
You come to CES.
Oh, look at that.
So that's what we have for you today.
Now love is a complex.
Complex thing right here.
These are high complexity moves.
Difficulty level, second to none.
Oh my God.
Oh, look at that, look at the grace, look at the majestic behavior.
It's like the Olympics.
You know, lots can go wrong.
Lots can go wrong.
You can clip a wing.
I don't like, like a giraffe maybe, like a big giraffe from a window could knock these, these things outta orbit.
I don't know.
It's just, it's for the next hour.
Holding nothing back.
God forbid, the one thing you wanna, you wanna avoid.
I'm just kidding though.
God forbid you run out of batteries.
You're sent home packing.
You're just sent home packing.
They show you the door and that's it.
Put you out of your misery.
This is intense
This is my favorite, there you have it, varying degrees of difficulty, excellent stuff here, there's a lot more tomorrow daily coming right after this break please.
Stay with us.
[APPLAUSE] This audience is way better than yesterday's audience.
Yeah, you guys are, you guys are pumped.
Yeah, you guys are great.
I know, and, and fortunately Jeff, no Jeff Bakalars were harmed in the making of that last segment.
We don't know that yet.
Well I'm not sure.
I haven't seen him back at the booth yet but, fortunately I'm, I've got my fingers crossed.
As you see we have a guest, yeah,
She just appeared.
We also 3D printed.
You might know her from Source Fed Nerds, this is the one and only Trisha Hershberger.
Everybody give her a round of applause.
Such a delight, this girl, she's delightful, and, one of the things that I always like, that we talk about every single year at CES, regardless of whether it's on this stage or not, is all the WTF of CES.
And there is a lot of it at the show.
So, we picked three of our favorites, and we're gonna talk about them.
Give us a little tour, a little taste, of what it's like to see the weirdest, like, most, I just don't understand but alright, okay.
I love it so much.
It's my favorite thing about CES every year because I feel like those" W.T.F" products and those ideas that lead to the next generation of...
Major consumer products.
Like, I mean, there was someone back in the day who was, like, a, a carriage that doesn't need horses to, like you know, it was the first car, and you're like-
It's a fad.
We don't need horses for that, that's pointless, nobody needs that.
My horse is just fine.
Like there was that person.
Yeah, so what are the horses gonna do?
Yeah, what'll those poor horses do?
Yeah, that's poppycock.
Yeah, for, I mean for, for every product there's gonna be the people that say, you don't need that, or that's.
Too expensive or whatever.
So I, I think that the weird stuff is the future of technology.
I mean, everyone at CES always talks about, you know, the big stuff.
The TV's, the wearables, the auto tech, but the little start ups are where it's at.
It's a foundation.
And you found no shortage of them this year, right?
There's never a shortage of WTF products here.
I mean, when you walk around, especially like if you're at Eureka Park, when you walk around you look at stuff and you're like.
That's a little strange.
I don't know what that means.
I don't know what that is.
And I even saw some of it in central hall this year, too.
Well, the spider dress is over there.
We had it here.
On stage yesterday.
We had it here on stage and it almost poked out Kale's eye.
Because I told him over and over again not to touch the model, and he wanted to just get a little closer
I wanted to touch the, yeah.
When you get a little invasive, that can happen.
[INAUDIBLE] Doesn't like that.
But very cool, 3D printed, and it.
Reacts to the, the user.
Very cool, yeah.
And she was looking in the future, like you said.
Yeah, and that's.
That could be the future.
I mean, it reminds me of in school, we used to get these like, I went to an all girls school, so we used to, got these like.
Self protection and date rape assemblies and stuff.
And I'm like who, who needs that information now?
That is terrifying.
You could just wear spider dress 2.0.
Wear a spider dress, pretty good.
The other, so one of the other things that you mentioned was that you saw that you thought was super weird, was the 10S.
Fork and knife.
Previously known as the happy fork.
Happy fork, yeah.
Now it's got a little matching knife friend.
So tell, okay, so you have to explain this a little bit to me, because I know before it was like, it, I believe it's like it wants you to lift your food and eat it every ten seconds.
Yeah, well it wants you to be.
At least ten seconds or slower.
So the idea is that you're not shoveling lettuce into your face like we were talking about during the break, fun conversations that happen when the cameras are off.
no, it wants you to wait ten seconds between every bite.
But the first generation of it would actually register as a bite when you stabbed food too.
If you were like a violent.
I was doing it, I was doing it.
One alligator, two alligators, three alligators
I like how you have to mouth the number.
That's a long time.
[INAUDIBLE] It vibrates, and lights up, and the idea is that before you eat every meal you press the button to activate it.
And and then you do your ten second bite.
But now, it's paired with a fork, so now you can get the 10s fork, or I'm sorry, knife.
So you can get the 10s fork and knife set.
Does it make you, well, why the knife, so, cuz you're not raising that to your mouth.
So, it is like you, you saw your foot in half for ten seconds?
Well, it's like this way, if you stab and the knife i down there, it doesn't recognize.
The stab as a bite.
So it's more accurate now.
A little bit more fancy, it's I guess it's been on sale in Europe.
But they're planning on bringing it to the States.
And it's just hilarious to me, it, it makes the weird product list for me because.
Who brings the same utensils around with them all day?
Like all right is it in your purse?
Like keep a fork.
Is it in your pocket?
In your jacket pocket.
Are there, are there sanitation wipes for after every meal so you can put it back and save it for later?
[INAUDIBLE] I've, I've got a fork.
Would you use this?
Would you find yourself?
I mean I guess if I really was concerned with my new.
Nutrition intake, maybe...
I'm going to go with no.
Still going to go with no.
Not, not carrying that around.
Yeah, $100 fork and knife.
I'm, I mean I might just go old fashioned and one alligator, two alligator, three alligator.
But like I said, there's the people that were like I'm old fashioned.
I'm going to go with the horse and buggy and reject the car.
You know what, you know what I'm in for?
They happy fork.
Oh, that's what happened, [CROSSTALK].
I need that next year.
So, you're welcome, internet.
You're welcome start-ups.
So, last thing that you wanted to talk about is the log bar ring, which, I haven't even heard of.
I know that our, I believe c net [FOREIGN] got to go see it.
But you please.
Explain to me, what the Logbar Ring is.
Okay, so, the Logbar Ring, was a very successful crowd funding project.
Raised over $800,000.
Oh, lot of money.
And it's a ring that you put on that enables you to control your surroundings via gesture.
Really neat idea.
So we think of the idea, and we're like, I'm gonna turn off all these studio lights.
And they just turn off.
Very, very cool idea.
You know, but, in practice at least right now, and this is the product's second generation that's being show at CES this year.
It's still very big and bulky.
And so I, I don't know how many people can legitimately rock that, unless you have like-
Well, you're spinning it right now and that is a huge.
I've got dainty lady fingers.
It's like a really bulky.
So it's like, that wouldn't really work for me.
It looks like almost a, like a big-
I just broke three of them right there.
That's just like [LAUGH]
You're a very fragile man.
So my she-hold strength, sure.
What are some of the things that they showed off, that, that they bragged about it being able to do, specifically?
So specifically they talk about turning off and lights with a gesture.
And it's, it's linked to an app.
So that you can plan what gestures you like.
You can make up whatever gesture you want to do whatever thing in your house that you want.
You could turn on and off appliances, off and on lights, just interact with your surroundings.
And now they have a ring hub that they sell as well, so you don't need to buy special lights or special appliances.
I got you.
It sends it out via infrared.
Do you think that I would be able to, at some point in the future, be able to shut off with a wave Kheil's bad.
Runs on nuclear power.
[LAUGH] Oh all right, fair enough.
You respond to infrared, right?
[LAUGH] Does not compute.
But yeah, so the, the ring itself, you press a button, you make a gesture.
And so, you'll see a little crystal on the side of the ring.
Press, press a button, make a gesture, and it does its thing.
But to me, I think.
How hard of a gesture is it to walk over to the wall and just flip the light switch?
I think that's more a thing about [CROSSTALK]
We're going back to the Wall-E generation.
[CROSSTALK] We just all sit in the chair and just, the, do this.
It's gonna happen.
But if I was playing XBox, then I could, like, restart my dryer load by, you know, playing my game and just doing like, ba da bam, and it did it.
Wave your, wave your hand, and it has [CROSSTALK] make you some food.
I'll have this one gesture for everything so like the wrong stuff going off at all times.
Xbox turn off.
But yeah the, the product is actually better now than it was before.
Before it was made out of zinc so it was actually interfering with it's own communication.
Okay good, all right, well okay so that's the WTF.
Stuff that we've seen at the show that especially Trisha she, she's, you want to ask anybody about it.
Good source right here.
Is your go to source of WTF at CES.
We're gonna go into, thank you so much for coming on the show.
You're gonna stick with us but really quickly tell everybody out there how they can find you on the internet and and where we can see you.
And then we'll jump into our user feedback.
Awesome, so you guys can feel free to check out YouTube.com/SourceFed for all of your news for the day in roughly 20 minutes or less.
You can go to YouTube.com/SourceFedNERD for some more fun kinda nerd niche stuff.
And you can find me on Twitter at ThatGrlTrish, no i in the girl.
Awesome, well thank you so much for coming.
And it is now time for my favorite part of the show.
It's all of you.
This is your user feedback.
You gotta wake up.
I should wave at you and you wake up.
Okay we got, we asked you guys yesterday, so Jessica Chobot came on the show yesterday.
I love her.
She was delightful.
And we talked about VR in gaming.
And so we asked our viewers to use the hash tag TDCESGaming to say what they were excited about with gaming in 2015.
And so we got some really good responses.
Shawn wrote to us and said the VR stuff intrigues me greatly.
Still feels like it might be another year off, though.
And then he said, also sorry, no raptor.
Which, I'll explain in a second.
Not a fan, Shawn.
Not a fan.
I, I agree.
I agree with you it might be a year off.
Dusty wrote to us and said, The Legend of Zeldo Wii U.
By a country mile.
He's just excited about The Legend of Zeldo.
And then Jorge wrote to us and said, stem from sixense.
Which is a a virtual reality set up that is pretty cool.
It's wireless, you can move around.
I checked it out this morning.
I went to the website.
It looks, looks pretty neat.
Lucky I haven't gotten there yet.
Yeah I hadn't seen that yet.
I know it's some cool stuff.
So, so we have, our, we consistently say that our viewers are much smarter people than we are.
Oh yeah, by a long, by a long shot yeah.
So speaking of being better than us yesterday we had Jessica Choba here and we we have a little tradition on Tomorrow Daily of asking people to Photoshop.
Kale and I.
And so we thought that would be really fun for the show so we thought yesterday we were greyhounds and, and so we asked Jessica Choba we said we could make a pose and we.
I do have it on my phone, we demanded oh gosh I don't have it on my phone, I don't have it on my phone with me.
Do you have it on my computer.
I, can can probably pull it up on my computer.
There's got to be a computer in this convention somewhere.
Oh I'm sorry our our director is going to reign over my phone.
But what we did was what we did was we asked we posed and we asked our viewers to have us put us in as velociraptor.
And well it's even more even going to get more amazing because I'm going to look this up.
And I'm going to show you.
The velociraptor image is, and I'm gonna play it up a little, like just like Jeff Bacalar, I'm gonna stretch those [CROSSTALK]
Oh there it is.
[INAUDIBLE] Bringing it out, because I
[CROSSTALK] Sorry for the wait, but here it is.
I have [INAUDIBLE] fear.
Sorry for the wait but guys.
Let's get it.
Let's get it.
Okay go, oh this one?
Guys get, get in on that.
[LAUGH] That's us as velociraptor.
It's so nice.
They gave me a.
They even gave Khail a pizza.
Because he is amazing.
Which is, yeah, so raptors love pizza.
Super love pizza.
It's just so fantastic.
I would like raptors a lot better if they eat pizza.
I got a Google Glass.
I know, if they were like, what up, dude?
I like that I was the velociraptor with Google Glass.
That's really nice.
Okay, so what do we want today?
Because we have another show tomorrow.
What is the Photoshop.
You want to pick the?
Okay, you pick it.
Alright, what do you got, what do you got.
Give your request to the people.
My request is to make and sell Capuchin monkeys.
I Love Capuchin Monkeys!
They're my favorite.
I don't even know what that is, so lets find out together!
So let's do a pose.
Let's hold the.
[INAUDIBLE] Talking, all right.
Okay, so we.
Have to, we have to do a pose, so we'll pose into this, into the camera, and we'll hold the shot for about two seconds
so that they can grab a frame.
Think of your monkey pose.
Okay, go ahead.
Did they just play music right there?
That was cool.
I think so.
Yeah, that was really nice.
Wait, let's see if we can do that again.
I love that.
It's like, it's like my own personal soundtrack, I love it.
This is this is the fun show.
We're, we're a fun show.
We like to have fun here.
I think so.
I mean, I, I've only been here a short time, but it's pretty fun.
Well, you're welcome back anytime.
Anytime you want.
We'll bring monkeys.
If you guys want to.
Submit anything to the show you wanna send us.
Your, your, oh, we gotta do hashtag of the day.
So our hashtag of the day, in honor of Trisha's appearance.
Is gonna be TDWTF.
So what, what is that?
What is your favorite weird tech coming out of CES?
Or maybe there was something you were hoping would show up, here at the show that didn't quite make it.
[NOISE] Morpheus [NOISE]
3D printed, 3D printed pizza.
Sorry I was.>> No, no.
You're not allowed to see it.
They'll kill you after.
Just [UNKNOWN] gotcha.
So that's your hashtag of the day today.
Feel free to use that.

I don't do that either.
I'm with you guys.
We're not pinners.
Get out of here pinterest.
We're throwing, throwing shade.
