of ways. It does seem like not the

wake to be spending cash.

Superstar

0:00:000:00:00

today on the Sunday express. 40

million hit the sales early.

0:00:000:00:03

Terrible. An enormous shopping date

shock. An estimated £1.67 billion...

0:00:030:00:15

How do they work that out? I

actually have not done all my

0:00:150:00:21

Christmas shopping.

You will have a

busy day tomorrow.

0:00:210:00:31

The great thing is that the majority

of the money

0:00:310:00:33

The great thing is that the majority

of the money was spent on High

0:00:330:00:34

Street, not online.

Actual physical

shops. Aren't you too late to buy

0:00:340:00:39

online? Oh, not for sale is not for

Christmas presents.

And at the

0:00:390:00:44

beginning of the market was down 10%

and everyone was worried so it

0:00:440:00:48

actually brilliant news the high

street.

You can spend it twice, you

0:00:480:00:53

need to spend it today or after

Christmas but you may get some

0:00:530:00:56

bargains. Take your sharp elbows

with you. Let's finish with the

0:00:560:01:00

express. Eat, drink and be merry.

Why? Good news, easy, convenient

0:01:000:01:08

answer to a obesity is on the way!

If this story is to be believed, an

0:01:080:01:13

injection has been invented, we are

told, or it has been invented by

0:01:130:01:20

university in Israel, that can stop

the sites that usually turn flat

0:01:200:01:25

into, our bodies burn them instead,

so the trial has been successful and

0:01:250:01:31

that could be on the market in two

years. Sir we can eat all the mince

0:01:310:01:36

pies we want.

We shouldn't applaud

this, should we?

We should show

0:01:360:01:40

restraint. Except we do exist in a

culture where there is food

0:01:400:01:45

everywhere the whole time and I

think we need to address culture to

0:01:450:01:48

make it easier for people, and also

so much is unhealthy and packed with

0:01:480:01:53

sugar and all sorts of things, it

makes it hard, I can see the need

0:01:530:01:57

for a magic cure and we will wait

and see...

We don't need new years

0:01:570:02:03

resolution, we can just have an

injection.

That is the papers.

0:02:030:02:07

Rosamond, Claire, good to see you,

thank you for coming in and a happy

0:02:070:02:11

Christmas and New Year. Coming up

next, its click.

0:02:110:02:14

T'was the night before Clickmas

and all through the smart home not

0:02:210:02:24

a gizmo was whirring,

not even a drone.

0:02:240:02:28

The stockings were full

with gadgets galore,

0:02:280:02:30

with virtual realities

primed to explore.

0:02:300:02:56

# The very next day you gave it away

0:02:560:03:00

# This year, to save me from tears

0:03:000:03:04

# I'll give it to...#

0:03:040:03:06

And welcome to

the Clickmas special!

0:03:060:03:09

CHEERING

0:03:090:03:12

And thank you very much

to John Culshaw for that excellent

0:03:120:03:15

rendition to start us off.

0:03:150:03:16

Would you believe it?

0:03:160:03:17

The gang's all here,

the halls are decked with nifty

0:03:170:03:20

gadgetry, and it's time

to get this party started.

0:03:200:03:23

Ooh!

0:03:230:03:24

Look at that!

0:03:240:03:25

This is the Lyric Speaker,

and it streams music

0:03:260:03:28

from your smartphone from Spotify,

and it also picks up the lyrics

0:03:280:03:31

from Spotify and displays it

on the screen for you all to stare

0:03:310:03:35

at, rather than having

a sociable conversation.

0:03:350:03:39

And if you do want something to talk

about, you can talk about the fact

0:03:390:03:43

that this costs £3600.

0:03:430:03:45

Wow!

0:03:450:03:45

Yes, so there we go.

0:03:450:03:46

Does it play Mariah Carey?

0:03:460:03:48

Technically, it does,

but we can't afford the licensing.

0:03:480:03:50

Well, I tell you what,

I've got a Christmas present

0:03:500:03:54

for you, Spencer.

0:03:540:03:55

Fabulous.

0:03:550:03:55

You've always wanted

to be a Jedi Knight,

0:03:560:03:58

I know this in my heart.

0:03:580:03:59

Yes.

0:03:590:04:00

You have always wanted

to have a lightsabre battle.

0:04:000:04:02

Oh, yes.

0:04:020:04:02

With this augmented reality

Star Wars battling headset, you can.

0:04:030:04:05

Fabulous.

0:04:050:04:06

Can I try it now?

0:04:060:04:07

Yes, but you're going to have to go

over there, because I know

0:04:070:04:10

you and your waving arms,

you're going to knock something

0:04:100:04:13

over.

0:04:130:04:13

OK.

0:04:130:04:23

While I get lost in a galaxy far,

far away, Dan is getting lost

0:04:230:04:27

in his favourite video game.

0:04:270:04:35

Come on, come on!

0:04:350:04:36

Come on!

0:04:360:04:37

Come on, come on, come

on, come on, come on!

0:04:370:04:40

I've just crashed it!

0:04:400:04:43

HE LAUGHS

0:04:430:04:44

It's a stunning game,

and I'd love to tell you it's just

0:04:450:04:48

like driving the real thing but...

0:04:480:04:51

..I can't just yet.

0:04:510:05:03

This is the Nissan GT-R.

0:05:030:05:05

Its four-wheel drive

traction-control system lays down

0:05:050:05:08

almost all the 550 horses

from the engine to the tarmac.

0:05:080:05:14

It has a top speed that

would make your nose bleed and been

0:05:140:05:18

clocked from 0-60 in

under three seconds.

0:05:180:05:24

I am ready to go again!

0:05:240:05:26

Sorry?

0:05:300:05:41

Oh, BLEEP!

0:05:410:05:43

Oh, BLEEP!

0:05:430:05:45

Oh, my...!

0:05:450:05:54

Yeah, you want to be a little bit...

0:05:540:06:00

So we've played the game,

we've driven the car,

0:06:010:06:06

so how about...

0:06:060:06:06

..we do both?

0:06:070:06:14

This is a full-size,

fully-specced remote-controlled

0:06:140:06:15

Nissan GT-R/C.

0:06:150:06:20

It has been made by the team at JLB

Design and is driven by a standard

0:06:200:06:24

PlayStation controller.

0:06:240:06:28

Four robots control

the transmission, steering,

0:06:280:06:30

throttle and the brakes.

0:06:300:06:34

The six number-crunchers in the boot

calculate my adjustments 100

0:06:340:06:37

times a second.

0:06:370:06:41

So just to be clear,

I'm going to be driving that car

0:06:410:06:44

with this, while Rob chases it

in the car that we're in,

0:06:440:06:48

so we don't lose contact, obviously.

0:06:480:06:51

I know.

0:06:510:06:51

Bonkers.

0:06:510:06:55

This is £100,000 worth

of sports car, and I've got

0:06:550:06:58

to say it's twitchy.

0:06:580:07:05

Just like the Grand Prix,

a bit of brake, there we go,

0:07:050:07:08

in we go, in we turn.

0:07:090:07:10

Just take a little bit of kerb.

0:07:100:07:12

He has got it round that corner!

0:07:120:07:14

He hasn't smashed the sports car!

0:07:140:07:17

This car has so much power,

and I literally have to just

0:07:170:07:20

dab my finger and it moves -

I mean, it really goes.

0:07:210:07:24

Incredible.

0:07:240:07:24

Wow!

0:07:240:07:31

I mean, just be able to control

something as powerful

0:07:310:07:34

as that is so much responsibility,

actually, but once you get into it,

0:07:340:07:38

you get focused on the car,

it's just incredible.

0:07:380:07:40

We should all have one of these

for Christmas, shouldn't we?

0:07:400:07:43

Oh, well.

0:07:430:07:49

Nice to dream.

0:07:530:07:56

Dan!

0:07:560:07:57

That looked amazing!

0:07:570:07:58

Pointless!

0:07:580:07:59

But amazing!

0:07:590:08:00

Yeah.

0:08:000:08:01

And terrifying.

0:08:010:08:05

It was absolutely terrifying, Spen.

0:08:050:08:07

I think we created a new emoji

when we filmed that.

0:08:070:08:10

Oh, I say!

0:08:100:08:10

But we flushed it away,

it's OK, it's fine.

0:08:100:08:13

Right, well!

0:08:130:08:19

Ho, ho, ho!

0:08:190:08:20

Merry Clickmas!

0:08:200:08:21

What have you got there?

0:08:210:08:22

This is my friend, Anki.

0:08:220:08:23

I thought it would bring some fun

to the Clickmas table.

0:08:240:08:26

Look, it even recognises me.

0:08:270:08:28

Hello, Anki!

0:08:280:08:28

And it's a goading robot!

0:08:280:08:30

It can say phrases, it can play

educational games and it can

0:08:300:08:33

even do that.

0:08:330:08:34

Let's have a look at what it

gets up to on the table.

0:08:340:08:37

Don't worry, it's not going to eat

those chocolate coins of yours!

0:08:370:08:41

Does it mine for Bitcoins?

0:08:410:08:42

It mines for chocolate

coins, at this moment.

0:08:420:08:44

Robots are the best!

0:08:440:08:54

This is Ocado's Hatfield

fulfilment centre -

0:08:540:08:56

a place where humans work alongside

a process that already

0:08:560:08:58

looks pretty automated.

0:08:580:09:02

But the robots are coming.

0:09:020:09:08

Wow!

0:09:080:09:10

This grocery-picking robot

is being tested here,

0:09:100:09:11

and early next year she'll be making

an appearance at one of Ocado's

0:09:120:09:15

warehouses to do the job for real.

0:09:150:09:19

It has been trained to identify

2,000 of Ocado's 50,000 products

0:09:190:09:22

using computer vision.

0:09:220:09:26

And as long as those

products are non-porous -

0:09:260:09:28

so that means basically anything

that won't be damaged

0:09:280:09:31

by being picked up by this vacuum -

then it can take them out

0:09:310:09:34

of the picking box, take them

through the scanner,

0:09:340:09:37

and place them in the bagging area.

0:09:370:09:41

But this isn't the only

bot being tested here.

0:09:410:09:44

So I'm off to meet a man called

Panos and an arm called SoMa.

0:09:440:09:53

Hello!

0:09:530:09:55

Oh, I don't know whose

hand I shake first.

0:09:550:09:57

I'm going to go for yours.

0:09:570:09:59

OK, so whilst this robot looks

like its purpose is just

0:09:590:10:02

to have the human touch,

so it can pick things up that

0:10:020:10:05

are softer without damaging them,

it does also have another skill.

0:10:050:10:09

What this one has been taught to do

is the same thing a human would.

0:10:100:10:14

So to put their hand on it,

roll it along and do that.

0:10:140:10:17

Panos, can you help it

demonstrate, please?

0:10:170:10:20

Of course.

0:10:200:10:22

Wow!

0:10:220:10:22

That arm movement

is quite something.

0:10:220:10:24

It's got a few elbows there.

0:10:240:10:32

But it's grabbed it, and it has

picked it up successfully.

0:10:330:10:36

It can put it down.

0:10:360:10:40

Oh!

0:10:400:10:41

Thanks, happy Christmas to you, too!

0:10:410:10:56

Wow, I have to say, you get a great

view of London's West End

0:10:560:11:00

from up here.

0:11:000:11:00

I'm on the roof of John

Lewis at the moment.

0:11:000:11:03

These aren't any old binoculars.

0:11:030:11:04

These are made by IQ,

and they are basically a combination

0:11:040:11:07

of a lens strapped to a smartphone

strapped to a viewer.

0:11:070:11:10

And they allow you to record

what you are seeing so you can watch

0:11:100:11:14

it back later and share

it with friends.

0:11:140:11:16

Nice.

0:11:160:11:17

I'm freezing.

0:11:170:11:17

I say, barman...

0:11:170:11:22

Well, hello there, Spencer!

0:11:220:11:23

If it isn't TV's Nick Kwek.

0:11:230:11:24

It's me!

0:11:240:11:25

How are you?

0:11:250:11:26

Cold.

0:11:260:11:26

Can you whip me up something hot?

0:11:260:11:30

Here you go, Spen.

0:11:310:11:32

It's a lovely hot chocolate.

0:11:320:11:34

I say hot, because actually

that is a smart mug you are holding.

0:11:340:11:38

It connects to your mobile phone

via an app, and that works

0:11:380:11:41

like a thermostat.

0:11:410:11:42

You choose the desired

temperature of your drink,

0:11:420:11:44

and that keeps it warm all day long.

0:11:440:11:46

All day long!

0:11:460:11:47

That is, until your smartphone's

battery dies, at which point

0:11:480:11:50

the power in the mug goes.

0:11:500:11:52

I'll drink it, then.

0:11:520:11:53

That will be £80.

0:11:530:11:57

Say what now?

0:11:570:12:01

£80.

0:12:010:12:05

£80!

0:12:050:12:05

What's that, production?

0:12:050:12:06

I'm needed back in the hub?

0:12:060:12:08

Spen!

0:12:080:12:08

I hope you're enjoying the show.

0:12:080:12:26

It's time for our Clickmas elfing.

0:12:260:12:28

Sticking with the theme of AR,

we'll be adding a bit of augmented

0:12:280:12:32

reality to the photo this year.

0:12:320:12:33

We have the photo printer

attached to a smartphone.

0:12:330:12:36

I will need some help here, Dan.

0:12:360:12:38

Could you take the selfie, please?

0:12:380:12:39

You are in a better

position than me.

0:12:390:12:41

We need to put it on video mode.

0:12:410:12:44

This is a video selfie?

0:12:440:12:45

Well, it is.

0:12:450:12:46

You will find out why in a moment.

0:12:460:12:48

All I have to say right now is that

when Dan presses the button,

0:12:480:12:52

make sure you move

and make some noise.

0:12:520:12:54

Happy Clickmas, or something

else appropriate.

0:12:540:12:56

Three, two, one!

0:12:560:12:56

ALL: Happy Clickmas!

0:12:560:12:57

So now we have still that looks like

but that we print.

0:12:570:13:01

That's unfortunate.

0:13:010:13:02

It's not a bad picture.

0:13:020:13:03

Let's print that still.

0:13:030:13:04

Hurrah!

0:13:040:13:05

There you go, Spencer.

0:13:050:13:06

Your memento.

0:13:060:13:12

Your memento for having us.

0:13:120:13:14

I like the way you framed it.

0:13:140:13:16

I'm sure that's what

it was designed for.

0:13:160:13:18

I'm going to have to

take a selfie of that.

0:13:180:13:21

That's it for this week.

0:13:210:13:22

Thank you so much for watching.

0:13:220:13:24

On behalf of the whole

team, Merry Clickmas!

0:13:240:13:30

The rooftop sees Santa

who is laughing with glee.

0:13:300:13:32

He is trying to fit

robots down the chimney.

0:13:320:13:36

He finished the job

and the gifs were delivered.

0:13:360:13:39

Around Rudolph's neck,

the GPS triggered.

0:13:390:13:42

And on Santa's step counter

the total was high.

0:13:420:13:44

Merry Clickmas to all!

0:13:440:13:45

# Now where's my mince pie?

0:13:450:13:52

Guys, I think I've fallen over.

0:13:520:13:53

No-one told me there was a step.
