VR experience gives viewers a forest animal's POV (Tomorrow Daily 262)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings citizen of the internet, welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe. It's a talk show with only one person because we are doing temporary, short episodes until we have our new set finished. But for now, let's see the headlines. [SOUND] Unless Time we talk about magic leap on this show. It had just released a video showing off an augmented reality alien shooter that looked really really cool. Well, this week they uploaded something new. The video shows off more of magic leap's Hovering over a desktop complete with light reflection. The most interesting part of the video though is the disclaimer on the bottom which says Quote, shot directly through Magic Leap technology on October 14, 2015. No special effects or compositing were used in the creation of these videos, unquote. Meaning, that's what the user is actually seeing. Allegedly, I should remind you that this isn't some indie hoping to generate buzz with some gimmicky video. Google, Legendary, Qualcomm, the founder of Window Workshop and even Sci Fi author Neal Stephenson are all invested in Magic Leap in some way. So, this video only increased my curiosity about Magic Leap by about 100. Now, all we need is a good look at the actual hardware, which we're assuming is a headset, but we haven't seen yet officially. Let's go, Magic Leap. Let's get the show on the road. Show me what you got. All right, so from there to virtual reality, we're going to talk about a London design studio Giving people a new perspective on walking through the forest. Marshmallow laser feast is the name of the studio, which is awesome in and of itself, but they built an experience called in the eyes of the animals. The experience goes like this, viewers sit on tree stumps in the middle of an actual forest, strap back packs on and wear VR head sets that look like giant black With foliage growing out of the front. Super weird, but kinda cool. The point of the project is to let humans experience nature as an animal would including sound and sight. The experience offers varying points of view and renderings of the same forest as different animals, using a combination of data from a remote Sensing technology called LiDAR, CT Scanning, photogrammetry, and a 360 degree camera. In the Eyes of the Animals was a featured project at the [UNKNOWN] Festival in the United Kingdom last month, but even if you didn't get to experience it in person. The process itself is pretty interesting to check out. So now lastly, our final story of the day is MIT tangible media group showing off a demo of something that could change the way assembly lines work forever. Kinetic blocks is the name of the shape shifting display project, and it's pretty interesting to look at. So there's a flat workspace that consists of pixel like squares that are actually computer controlled pins that move up and down. Those pins can be manipulated individually to do things like Twist, rotate, move, and even stack objects, in this case blocks, of varying sizes without a human being touching anything on the workspace or directly influencing the movement of the object. The process itself can be fully automated, and Kinetic Blocks can record a
