Turn our TV into a touchscreen? We're listening... (Tomorrow Daily 224)
On today's show, a personal transport device is gonna turn anywhere into a moving sidewalk.
A little gadget that's gonna turn your tv into a giant iPad.
And brand new goPro device that's going to do all the editing for you.
Oh, I like that.
Can it edit this show?
No one can edit this show.
Greetings, citizens of the internet.
Welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best news talk show in the know universe.
I'm Ashley Esqueda, that's Khail Anonymous, we're your friendly tour guides for this episode today.
We're tour guides.
We don't have name tags.
I hope you remember which one is which All right, are you ready to talk about headlines?
All right, let's do it.
Have you ever sat on your couch and thought to yourself, you're sitting on your couch watching TV and you're just like, I wish that I could get up and walk to my TV and touch it and make it a touch Yea, there's a lot of pretty ladies out there.
[LAUGH] Okay, fair enough, right.
I didn't think of it that way but I'll buy it.
So we're going to talk about TouchJet Wave.
So this is a very interesting little device that I caught on IndieGoGo this morning.
Again, it's crowdfunding and we didn't do background [UNKNOWN] on Monday because we weren't here, so I decided let's just talk about it now.
It actually makes your television, your 20 to 80 inch television, so most televisions, a touchscreen.
And here's how they do it.
So it's an Android-powered device that actually mounts on the top of your TV, and almost looks like a little art light, the ones that shine down on a piece of art to light it up.
Kinda looks like that.
And it is fully Android powered.
It's running KitKat.
It's running 4., Android 4.4 KitKat.
And there are infrared sensors inside that sort of arm that goes over the TV that can detect four points of touch.
So four inputs.
Works on TVs like I said.
From 20 to 80 inches.
It has a custom touch UI but you can load any Android app.
So any Android app you can find in Google Play Store, you can load that right onto that device.
Cuz again, there's an actual computer chip in there.
It's not just like a thing that then your TV has to be compatible with.
That does everything for the touch screen.
And you can load android apps on it.
Makes it easy yeah.
So maybe you're going I don't want a bunch of people touching my television.
Fine they have a stylus that comes with it.
And also if you're really, really lazy and you don't actually want to get up but you want to run android apps on your television there's a mobile app.
That can be used as a remote and it works on iOS.
So, if you have an iPhone at home and you're thinking, oh it's Android, like I can't.
No, Touchjet will have an iOS app available as well,
But, it's pretty awesome.
Like, I thought this is really interesting.
The price is pretty reasonable.
I was kind of surprised at that.
Obviously, Alot of use for this is business, but they did show people like doing Fruit Ninja.
And games and also Youtube videos.
You could scrub through.
More importantly, MInecraft.
Minecraft, of course.
They want $100,000.
They probably will have it by the time this show publishes.
If not cuz they're pretty close.
When checked before I left for the studio, it was 96k.
Yeah, but how much was it for the device?
If you buy it within the first 48 hours, they have 500 of them for $99 bucks.
I was gonna say like, $300.
It's only $99, so the first 48 hours, that's their 48 hour early bird, and then, if you miss that, it's 119.
So, it's only 10 bucks more.
So, not bad at all.
Yea, that's not bad for something you can just mess around with.
It's Like [CROSSTALK].
$300, you'd have to have a good sense of what you wanted it for.
Like I needed this for my office.
But 119, you'd just be like book.
I can **** around with it.
I can show friends.
Sometimes maybe I'll find an actual use for it.
You could just This could be like a good Christmas gift.
Wow, this is good right on.
So I thought it was really interesting, you can control it from your couch, like I said, just remember, if you're lazy.
There's a part of me that I'm watching the video and I'm thinking I don't ever want to get up off my couch and touch my television, like there's no time, but I did after watching the video was like well okay where there's some app that maybe for example, if I'm like using an app to show my husband like, we're looking for houses.
Yeah, I was about to say there was a guy using AirBnB if you don't know that's
You can do BnB at other people's houses, but I could be like.
We're going to Joshua Tree.
Let's take a look at the map and, oh.
This one's good.
There it is.
This one's good.
I like this location.
That's too expensive and you can show images.
Like, yeah, that's cool.
And, that's cool and you can throw video.
And from your device.
Oh my god, I gotta get that.
When are they sending it?
Next year, in February.
So, not terribly far out.
But yeah, it's called the touch jet wave.
That's the name of it.
And it works for that TV.
You just have to have an extra HDMI port available cuz you have to plug it in.
Or maybe USB, I forget which one it is.
But yeah, it's super easy.
Like plug and play, they're like there's no extra.
You don't plug in and install software anything like that.
Well here's another really cool kind of invention that's coming around.
Can we do the hashtag of the day?
Oh you wanna do your hashtag of the day?
No, absolutely not.
So here's the invention-
So the hashtag of the day is #TDWAVE.
I'm just curious as to what else in your everyday life want to make touch enabled.
What's a thing in your life that you would want to be able to add touch capabilities to.
It can be silly.
Pants touch capability?
You can change the color?
You tap them in certain places?
I mean, they would stay red.
They would always stay red.
But I could unlock my house just by going.
Oh, I like that.
Something like that, or play Kesha and rub my thigh.
I can come up with a whole bunch of different ones.
If I double kick my legs I like that.
See, now it's not touch anymore, but you get the idea.
Gesture, and I'll order some pizza every time I double kick.
I like that.
I would do my car and I would want to change the pink color depending on my mood.
Just tap the car.
That is a really good idea.
I really like that.
Totally useless for everybody else but me, but I would enjoy it.
Feed and wave, so if you have some ideas for that.
So lets move on to this new thing.
It's not really new because it's basically a goPro but it's not goPro.
So it's like a new competitor.
it's great it has 4k time lapse ability.
This video is great by the way if you ever have a chance to check it out.
This guy is hilarious.
1080 P video 4K time lapse.
Small camera, lots of mount options.
But, what he's showing off right now, is that this camera can edit your videos.
And how it does it, is it kind of reacts to your motion.
You see how its got that like Like a little, you know.
Got a little chart here, a flowchart.
And it's basically based on your heart rate and how you react to videos.
And what it'll, to the things around you.
So when you see something interesting and you laugh, it'll put that as a high point.
So then when you're done at the end of the day you're like.
Make me a five minute video of what I recorded.
It'll take all those high moments when you had an emotion, and edit it together, to one video, all the cool things you saw.
I mean it's pretty cool.
Not everybody has enough time to plop down all their HD footage.
There's a guy walking across.
That's an interesting, point of interest in the recording.
So I'm going to take that And I'm gonna use it in this edit.
So if you like see a bunch of bees fly by you all of a sudden, you're gonna scare and it's gonna edit that whole part in.
Or if you see a couple kiss and you think it's really adorable and your heart beats faster.
It'll record that.
I'm picking really bad options, but you see where I'm going with this.
But I [UNKNOWN] okay, so this guy's like, all right, so I'm driving around, or it's like if you're making a time lapse video.
Okay, so this is an example of what it can do.
Yeah, and if you hit a deer-
This is edited by the camera.
If you hit a deer.
Again, another bad option, but you get the idea.
It's a pretty cool feature.
You can just have the footage raw, but this is an option that it has.
Yeah, it's pretty cool.
It also works with your, that's another great feature.
It works with your phone.
You can upload straight from your device to your phone.
You can tell it next time you dock to edit the upload a video.
It's very easy to use.
Go Pro, I mean Go Pro's got a crazy amount of features.
But this one tries to make it more user friendly, and streamlined, and everything.
So, how much are you going to pay for that?
Yea, how much?
249, 249 coming out next year
That's pretty good.
in February along with your touchscreen.
Aw, man, so we're a long ways off from Grava.
.>> It's cool.
The Grava, you can grab one next year.
Really like that actually.
Nice to see some different options out there.
It reminds of in Google photos, they now do auto awesome.
If you take a bunch of pictures and upload them from a trip, they'll make it into a little video for you that you can share with people.
And it'll automatically do like Ken Burns like photo moves and stuff.
But that's great because there are people and [UNKNOWN] does this too on their phones.
They have the ability to video to cut it into a little highlights reel.
And this is fantastic because so many times like how many times have you been at an event or you've gone somewhere, you shot a bunch of video, you took a bunch of pictures and then you're just like You just leave it.
It like, uploads to the Cloud and it's locked to the ether, and you're just like, well I don't really have time to edit this, but I want to.
Imagine you're surfing and you just turned the GoPro on and then at the end you're like, well, I want all the times I caught a wave.
of course your heart's going to be beating faster.
You gotta go through.
And it'll edit them all together.
I like that a lot.
That's pretty cool.
That is pretty, pretty cool.
Okay, so last thing and then I promise we will move forth, go forth with the show I want this.
It's called Walkcar.
This is like, product day on Tomorrow Daily, I like, found a bunch of stuff that I want.
This is Walkcar.
Look how thin that is, it looks like it's a little laptop, no, it's a personal portable travel device that goes around 6.2 miles per hour.
You get on top of it, it supports up to 265 pounds And it works a lot like the air board that you see Justin Bieber riding around on.
You shift your weight and it moves based on your weight.
It can go up to, I believe, almost seven miles on one single charge and I think it takes about three hours to fully charge all the way which is pretty cool and also, I mean, it's tiny and fits in a backpack, that I think I like the best.
It's not going to be cheap.
This guy looks stupid.
Anyway, go ahead.
This is a prototype device developed in Japan.
The guy who developed it said there's nothing really like this thus far and he said usually you see.
Oh, I thought he was going to fall down the stairs.
That would have been terrible.
So and usually you see like the US designed something and then it's innovated on by other countries like I wanted to show Japan could be innovative and I made this thing.
So now he wants to kick start it.
It's gonna be a kickstarter in the fall.
Look at this guy just pushing a cart up the hill.
I like this better than the stupid Justin Bieber one that all the rappers have right now.
I do too.
It looks a little bit sleeker.
Like it looks, it's subtle.
They're all stupid.
They're all really dumb.
I hate Device.
Do you hate it?
I just don't see a reason for these devices.
Is it a little too Wall-E for you?
I guess maybe, if a security guard had one like Paul Blart Mall Cop, but with those things.
Paul Blart Mall Cop 3.
That could be.
He could be on a walk car.
I think that technology.
Logan agrees with me, right?
It's going to be a really bad addition to humanity because it's going to make people lazy.
And it's going to yea, I don't get it.
Every Wok car comes with a cupcake in a cup for free.
Can you imagine if you went to a grocery store or you went to Disneyland and everyone is just wheeling around it would be so annoying, People can't even drive let alone do this.
Yea, that's true.
I wouldn't mind having it though in lieu of a bike.
Like to go to, I have a little shopping center right around the corner from the house.
And it's like I feel like a jerk when I drive there, but then I also don't have a bike.
So I'm just like well, I would like to have one of these and I could just zip over there to get some lunch and come back, like that would be cool.
Cause it's a little bit less time than walking.
With a bike, for me, I get really scared I'm gonna get hit by a car every time.
So I put on a helmet.
I gotta put on the knee pads.
I gotta put on my elbow pads.
I gotta get on my bike clothes, gotta get the whole thing going.
That takes a long time.
Again, a very first world problem.
Totally first world problem.
And just really
I'm sorry, if you own one of these I hate you.
Well, it's a prototype.
It's gonna be maybe on Kickstarter later this year.
If you want one, estimated cost about 800 bucks.
So, maybe donate that money to charity.
Buy some roller blades.
Those are cool.
I have roller blades, wow.
I could use roller blades.
That's even more dangerous than the bicycle.
Well no, I can't actually use, like I have them, but I can't actually use them.
We've talked about this way too long.
I hate these things, so move on.
So, we're going to take a quick break, but before we do, check out this relax
lovely drum footage from Australia.
We'll be right back.
It's Tomorrow Daily.
Welcome back to the show.
Khail would you say you're more of a cat person?
You're definitely more of a cat person.
Like I'm not super proud of it but I love cats.
I have the perfect Mod Squad for you.
You're gonna mod a cat?
Let's talk about it.
Okay we're gonna discuss Benjamin Millam and his cat Monkey.
All right, I don't know why you'd name a cat Monkey but fine, we'll accept that.
We'll move on.
We'll get past that.
You know sometimes your looking at your cat and you're just like you're so lazy, why don't you do something around here.
Around here, like sometimes I wonder that about our pet, my pet.
I'm like can't you just wash a dish or like just work, do anything.
Like I feed you, I give you everything you want, do something.
Well he decided, Benjamin decided to do something about that and so he with an arduino device he made an arduino add on for his cat food feeder.
And the arch in the device has an RFID reader and so he put a funnel there and took a bunch of wiffle balls and put RFID tags inside them and then trained his cat to find the wiffle balls and put them inside the funnel and then it feeds him.
So he has to work for his food.
I love it.
You got work.
He's got to work for his dinner.
That cat is so adorable.
I know and so smart.
Do you like how when he put the ball in, he still wanted to play with it?
He was like, no wait wait wait wait, let me play with this a little first.
Well that's great.
Cat's can learn, it just takes forever.
He has to train him in different stages to get the cat to be able to understand what exactly was happening but now he says that he's able to hide these wiffle balls all over his apartment and the cat spends his days looking for them.
Probably cause he's starving to death cause he's not eating nearly as much.
But no, he goes around and he finds a bunch of balls, and he takes them right over the container, drops them in, gets the food.
Super fun mod squad.
I think he should market this and he should sell it to cat people.
Using cardboard as a desk?
It's a speaker box.
I noticed that too.
oh my God.
[CROSSTALK] Oh okay, no, no, no see it's not a desk, he just keeps storing it.
Okay, it's all right.
So yeah, look [CROSSTALK]
He hates doing this.
He's like I got it, I got it, I got it.
Look, I got it.
I'm gonna go get a snack now.
Okay, one more time.
Let's see it.
So we'll go back-
Where am I?
Hi, I'm looking at the cat.
[CROSSTALK] I gotta figure out okay.
I got my location, walking over to the weird thing that my human put down next to my food that I can deposit this in the bank of wiffle balls and now I get food.
So there you go that's how he does it.
It's pretty cool.
All our [UNKNOWN] power.
It's amazing what people can think up, but he to kind of hack his cat's brain.
Like get him to do that.
Train him to do that.
So nice work Ben and monkey.
More monkey I mean you trained your cat.
Alright let's talk about user feedback.
I guess we already discussed the sad face that the universe is slowly giving up.
What a weird title for that video you gave.
.. what did you call it?
Oh, emo universe slowly giving up on life, starts wearing more black holes.
Wait it said it starts wearing more black holes?
Yeah, a lot.
That was a social media post because I didn't have enough space on the headline this year.
Oh my God.
All it said was emo universe and I was like, "What?"
Slowly giving up on life started listening to Dashboard Confessionals.
So we asked you guys to think up tombstones [UNKNOWN]
for the universe because it is slowly dying in a trillion years.
Who know maybe it will use one of yours.
Pin said "Wait, turn us back on!
Answer to life, universe and everything is not 42.
One of the signs the equation is wrong." Gayle wrote in and said 100 Trillion years old.
Taken from us too early.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
That's two Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe references.
Sent us this lovely Photoshop and said here lies the universe.
Since it was ever expanding, everyone expected one thing it should be handling to cut them some slack.
Yet it's final response said it all faded to black.
So that was good.
Yeah very intense poem, very intense poem.
Matt wrote in, accomplishments with the Universe awesomistic, awesomistic, yeah, awesomistic dying after all this hype, Pluto not a planet.
So he wrote on the tombstone here lies the awesomistic universe.
Rest in Plutotes.
He's taking it personal.
Will wrote in "here lies the universe.
We had one job.
Clearly it was too much for us.
" I think the universe had one job, to stay around and it's not going to so you could say, you had one job universe.
I think that we could just leave it at that.
You had one job, that's it.
Alright guys we got to talk about our very last few Cesar feedback which is always our phonetographer of the day.
Alright so we talked about our phone [UNKNOWN], which we'll get to in a second, but Van wrote in to us.
Van says, hello.
This is a picture of my dog Lucky.
I am a dog.
It was such a nice day out, and Lucky had a blast on the beach.
This is taken on my Galaxy S6 Edge.
So he's got the Edge.
She's got the little wrap around but look at that dog?
Look at that selfie?
That dog took a great selfie.
That is a dog selfie if I've ever seen one.
Vam, I don't believe you took this picture.
I'm gonna need permission from your dog, Lucky, to use it on the show.
So you have to email us and say, I am a dog.
I am writing this email and I give you permission to use my selfie on Tomorrow Today.
I like the lighthouse in the background.
Like that dog has some really serious photography skills.
I'm just saying.
Yeah, it's cool, I like it.
Great picture, excellent work.
And then also we have to talk about really briefly, we're still doing Campbell's challenge.
All through the week, we're going to announce the winner tomorrow.

One more day.
I can't, the suspense.
I know the suspense is killing us.

It didn't look pretentious.
The lady had a mustache.
I think, it's fun.
I didn't tell you, but we played Hungry Hungry Humans.
At that party.>>oh>>which is, you get a waste basket and they throw a bunch of balls in the middle, then one person lies on the ground.
