Now it is time for Click. Excuse me, I ordered a diet cola.

:00:37.:00:41.

This week on Click we will be getting out chops through some

:00:41.:00:46.

healthy take fair, as we discover the crop of gadgets aiming to keep

:00:46.:00:51.

you in tip-top condition. 8 million pixels but nothing on. We will find

:00:51.:00:55.

that when we will be able to watch anything on these new Super high-

:00:55.:01:00.

definition screens. All that plus the latest tech news from around

:01:00.:01:08.

the world, and a chance to hear the world in Webscape.

:01:08.:01:14.

Welcome to Click. Welcome back to Las Vegas. This week we are at a

:01:14.:01:18.

restaurant called The Heart Attack Grill, home to the world famous

:01:18.:01:24.

Quadruple Bypass Burger, which at 9982 calories, it comes in just

:01:24.:01:30.

under the crucial 10,000 can the remark. We are in Las Vegas for the

:01:30.:01:34.

consumer electronics show, which explores some of the technology

:01:34.:01:41.

themes that are going to be big in 2013. One of them had turned out to

:01:41.:01:51.

be health technology. A new raft of health gadgets to

:01:51.:01:54.

monitor everything from pulse to oxygen levels is getting every

:01:54.:01:58.

fitness addicts' hearts racing. But if you've been around the block a

:01:58.:02:07.

bit, using tech to check your vital signs isn't anything new. Some of

:02:07.:02:09.

the more popular gadgets are this watch, for example, that can

:02:09.:02:13.

measure my heart rate through a strap sensor that I am wearing on

:02:13.:02:16.

my chest, sending the details wirelessly to this screen or a posh

:02:16.:02:19.

pedometer that use accelerometers to tell you how many steps you have

:02:19.:02:27.

taken during the day. And FitBit, the market leader at the moment,

:02:27.:02:30.

has moved to a strap-based solution which is going to be available from

:02:30.:02:34.

March. And that tells me just at the glance of a few lights how

:02:34.:02:42.

close I am to my target. No chance of that happening today!

:02:42.:02:45.

Rather than wearing something new though, how about using what you

:02:45.:02:48.

probably already wear when working out to keep an eye on your

:02:48.:02:52.

progress? Monica here doesn't appear to have anything but her MP3

:02:52.:02:57.

player turned on, but the ear buds are different. An infra-red sensor

:02:57.:03:00.

detects blood flow inside the ear to determine heart rate, while an

:03:00.:03:09.

accelerometer inside takes a good guess at distance travelled. This

:03:09.:03:12.

is the first product to use the hidden technology which is due out

:03:12.:03:17.

in spring. Of course you still have to look at your phone to see how

:03:17.:03:21.

you're doing. OK if you're in the gym, not so handy when out on the

:03:21.:03:27.

road. This sun visor is linked to a strap that's monitoring my heart,

:03:27.:03:30.

that information is sent wirelessly to a tiny screen that is just on

:03:30.:03:35.

the end of my vision. So you know your heart rate, pace, and incline

:03:35.:03:42.

climbed. All this data, so what are we expected to do with it?

:03:42.:03:46.

biggest challenge that we face at Polar is not to provide them with

:03:46.:03:49.

the information, but what they do with the information, how do they

:03:49.:03:52.

interpret it, how do they use it, I think that's the biggest challenge.

:03:52.:03:55.

I think the companies that are here now, measuring things, are showing

:03:55.:03:59.

them information about themselves, but how do you interpret that?

:03:59.:04:01.

These futuristic-looking shades could be one answer, they can be

:04:01.:04:03.

pre-programmed with different coloured lights that tell me

:04:03.:04:08.

whether I need to speed up or slow down to hit my target. There is

:04:08.:04:11.

also a rather incessant Aussie shouting in my ear saying pretty

:04:11.:04:16.

much the same thing. Heart rate below target! Yeah, all right, all

:04:16.:04:25.

right. Sometimes it's not how fast you move but simply how you move.

:04:25.:04:27.

Xsens is a Dutch outfit that provides motion tracking to

:04:27.:04:30.

Hollywood studios who use it to map computer animation to human

:04:30.:04:36.

movement. And now it's produced a cut down consumer version, sporting

:04:36.:04:39.

anything up to 15 sensors which could help runners, golfers, or

:04:39.:04:49.

ballet dancers perfect their technique. Many of the devices I've

:04:49.:04:53.

picked up so far are using a new low powered version of Bluetooth.

:04:53.:04:55.

Meaning batteries could last for days or weeks but eventually one

:04:55.:04:58.

company hopes our workouts themselves will power these devices

:04:58.:05:07.

by converting body heat to electricity. Advances in fitness

:05:07.:05:12.

and health care tech aren't just wireless. All sorts of tools can

:05:12.:05:14.

now be plugged into your mobile device, like this breath tester,

:05:14.:05:17.

which could be used to encourage kids with asthma to develop their

:05:17.:05:23.

lung capacity, or for patients recovering from accidents. And this

:05:23.:05:26.

finger monitor plugs into an iPad to give accurate blood oxygen

:05:26.:05:31.

levels. A bit specialist this one, useful for mountaineers or pilots

:05:31.:05:34.

who carry tablets everywhere they go, but the idea could in future be

:05:34.:05:40.

introduced in clinics or hospitals. Taking care of ourselves through

:05:40.:05:44.

home monitoring is also a big trend. The company selling these announced

:05:45.:05:48.

a deal that may also relieve us of having to collate and make sense of

:05:48.:05:53.

the information too. It's linked up with security firm ADT which will

:05:54.:05:56.

start offering monitoring of you by a professional as well as

:05:56.:06:03.

monitoring of your home by their security experts. And telemedicine,

:06:04.:06:06.

once the preserve of developing countries, could help slash health

:06:06.:06:11.

costs in places like America. HealthSpot has come up with these

:06:11.:06:14.

pop up clinics where patients check themselves in and speak face to

:06:14.:06:17.

screen with a doctor who can ask them to carry out various tests

:06:17.:06:26.

using the onsite equipment. Monitoring what's around you could

:06:26.:06:28.

be crucial to maintaining your health, or so thinks Lapka which

:06:28.:06:34.

has developed the chain of plug-in testers. One is radiation, another

:06:34.:06:37.

tells you if your food is organic by measuring the level of nitrates

:06:37.:06:44.

present. And then there's the slightly more bizarre ideas. These

:06:44.:06:46.

glasses induce relaxation or can spark fresh energy through a

:06:46.:06:53.

psychedelic mixture of colour and sound. Its makers claim they can be

:06:53.:06:58.

used to treat all kinds of ailments. Sadly I still had jet lag after my

:06:58.:07:05.

10 minutes. But perhaps the most ambitious project at the expo was

:07:05.:07:15.
:07:15.:07:19.

one that hopes to create something we've so far only imagined. The

:07:19.:07:22.

idea of a Tricorder as featured in Star Trek is the vision of Qualcomm

:07:22.:07:25.

and the X PRIZE Foundation who are putting up $10 million in prize

:07:25.:07:28.

money for the individual or company who can make the instant wireless

:07:28.:07:37.

diagnostic kit a reality by 2015. Perhaps the most important aspect

:07:37.:07:40.

of this is, beyond all the technical requirements to capture

:07:40.:07:42.

15 different disease states and vital signs, the ability to make

:07:43.:07:45.

cogent and intelligent information available to consumers that would

:07:45.:07:47.

give them a clear understanding of their health status and an

:07:48.:07:50.

understanding, directionally of what to do about what they have

:07:50.:07:53.

learnt from their device may prove to be the most important and

:07:53.:08:03.

significant achievement. A fragmented health and fitness

:08:03.:08:05.

marketplace filled with gadgets measuring a myriad of different

:08:05.:08:12.

things all seamlessly rolled into one simple device? It's technology,

:08:12.:08:22.
:08:22.:08:31.

Jim, but not as we know it. Yet. If you are wondering about the

:08:31.:08:37.

outfit, this restaurant insist that all of its patients, Surrey, its

:08:37.:08:45.

customers, wear a surgical gown. A look at this week's Ten News.

:08:45.:08:50.

Where is the dessert menu? Facebook revealed a new social

:08:50.:08:54.

search engine that scans the side's content, called Graph Search. It

:08:54.:08:59.

lets users look through information that their friends find rot --

:08:59.:09:03.

relevant, such as restaurants or music that they like. The neutral

:09:03.:09:10.

will respect uses' privacy settings, only throwing up results that they

:09:10.:09:17.

could find themselves by browsing the site, adding that it will not

:09:17.:09:21.

be a competition with Google. The once big daddy of social

:09:21.:09:30.

networks, MySpace, has been given a week that. MySpace's strands have

:09:30.:09:34.

traditionally been musical, the face live site places a healthy

:09:34.:09:40.

emphasis on the lot -- discovering a new music. The jukebox jury is

:09:40.:09:45.

out on whether the pop-star's reflected glory is enough to jump-

:09:45.:09:50.

start the social networking site. A big decision on who has control

:09:50.:09:54.

over your images has been taking place in America, following a two-

:09:54.:09:57.

year court case in New York, the district judge has ruled that you

:09:57.:10:02.

do. Photographer Dan your morale took photos in the aftermath of the

:10:02.:10:08.

Haiti earthquake and posted them on Twitter. A court ruled that two and

:10:08.:10:12.

news organisations distributed one of his photos without his

:10:12.:10:17.

permission, even though he had shed them on Twitter. Finally, the White

:10:17.:10:21.

House has officially announced that the US would not be ordered a Death

:10:21.:10:29.

Star, even though 35,000 Americans signed a petition requesting one.

:10:29.:10:33.

In a tongue-in-cheek response, President Obama's demonstration

:10:33.:10:40.

said that it does not support the blowing up of a planet. It has

:10:40.:10:45.

highlighted other space projects that the US government is working

:10:45.:10:51.

on. It also acknowledge the overriding power of the force.

:10:51.:10:56.

Over the last few months, there has been a lot of talk about the latest

:10:56.:11:02.

type of screen technology. On the hills of hi-def and 3D, comes 4K,

:11:02.:11:07.

with four times the resolution of the new hi-def TV. I'm surprisingly,

:11:07.:11:11.

there were a lot of 4K announcements at sea as, and a

:11:12.:11:16.

great opportunity for Ian Hardy to find out where and when 4K will

:11:16.:11:24.

make its presence felt. -- the consumer electronics show.

:11:24.:11:29.

Flowers, food and festival footage. That can only mean one thing, the

:11:30.:11:34.

newest TV technology is on display and ready for prime time. At least

:11:34.:11:38.

that is what the electronics manufacturers would like consumers

:11:38.:11:46.

to believe that. But it is not quite that simple. Because without

:11:46.:11:52.

content, a TV is just a big black space. To get the most out of a 4K

:11:52.:11:56.

or opera high-definition TV, the content has to contain four times

:11:56.:12:01.

as many pixels as a scene on a traditional HD screen. More pixels

:12:01.:12:06.

means a better image, and you may have already seen 4K at your local

:12:06.:12:11.

cinema, more and more films are being shot in this format, that is

:12:11.:12:15.

why one company is packaging a giant 84 inch screen and a media

:12:15.:12:22.

server in one, to get the ball rolling in the home. Because Sony

:12:22.:12:25.

also owns movie studios, we are uniquely positioned to offer

:12:25.:12:33.

content. We are offering a video player, it will come loaded. There

:12:33.:12:41.

are a tonne of shorts, independent movies. Also really amazing shots.

:12:41.:12:45.

Sony's new content delivery service would not be up and running and

:12:45.:12:55.
:12:55.:12:57.

will later this year, when more details will be revealed. Moving 84

:12:57.:13:01.

K video around is currently not that easy because of the higher

:13:01.:13:08.

file servers -- sizes. Today's internet is too slow in most

:13:08.:13:15.

countries. Delivery will become easier as band with the limits

:13:15.:13:20.

increase, and video file sizes get smaller. The ability to cut bit

:13:20.:13:25.

rates in half and/file sizes dramatically without losing any of

:13:25.:13:29.

the quality is thanks to a new codec that will replace the current

:13:29.:13:37.

one, which is caught H.264. It's squishes the BDO down to smaller

:13:38.:13:45.

sizes. With the new codec, it is called H.265, it can save 40% of

:13:45.:13:50.

the video a size. You can compress it down and get it to deliver it.

:13:50.:13:55.

There are dozens of screens at the show playing 4K content. I had seen

:13:55.:14:02.

many of them in person. It is the bed, crisp, very colourful. But if

:14:02.:14:06.

we want to create the same content, certainly within the next he also,

:14:06.:14:11.

it may prove to be a bit of a challenge. One of the most

:14:11.:14:16.

affordable solutions is the go pro hero three, but this will only

:14:16.:14:22.

record at two frame rates, 12 and 15, far below the 120 frames per

:14:22.:14:30.

second scene in the best quality 4K footage. There is a misconception

:14:30.:14:35.

about what this mode is intended for. It is for very specific types

:14:35.:14:44.

of content. Time lapse is the popular one. If you absolutely

:14:44.:14:49.

cannot wait for whatever reason to start building a 4K library, then a

:14:49.:14:53.

top of the line DSLR From Canon Can do the job at a reasonable 24

:14:53.:14:59.

frames per second. It also records 4K content on to two Compact Flash

Cards. Mummies and daddies with $12,000 to spare are delighted,

:15:05.:15:10.

because they no longer have to make the agonising decision to capture a

once in a lifetime moment in either of video or photo mode. Forte can

:15:15.:15:23.

produce great photos from individual video frames. -- 4K.

:15:23.:15:28.

Still photography, some people have been shooting 24 frames and lifted

:15:28.:15:34.

the frames out. I have been astonished at the resolution. You

:15:34.:15:44.
:15:44.:15:47.

can get a very fast burst. Photographs looked best on a 24

:15:47.:15:51.

inch tablet which Panasonic says it will be produced later this year

:15:51.:15:56.

for business users. As more and more video cameras become available,

:15:56.:16:01.

such as this one from JVC, it will make it easier to collect memories.

:16:01.:16:06.

For most of us, the technical and financial barriers of downloading,

:16:06.:16:11.

uploading, offloading, or creating native 4K video puts it out of

:16:11.:16:18.

reach. Not that we really need to worry. 4K television sets

:16:18.:16:21.

themselves are also priced somewhere between sky-high and out

:16:21.:16:30.

Las Vegas is somewhere that reminds you that this planet is an amazing

:16:30.:16:35.

place full of bizarre sights, sounds and smells. Of course you

:16:35.:16:38.

don't actually have to come here these days to experience the sights,

:16:38.:16:44.

you can just go online and look at them. Now Kate Russell has found

:16:44.:16:48.

somewhere where you can experience the sounds as well. Thankfully no

:16:48.:16:53.

one has worked out how to share the smells yet, that could be a bit too

:16:53.:16:59.

scary. Anyway, here's Webscape. Ever wondered what it sounds like

:16:59.:17:09.

to stand beside a metal works on the outskirts of Moscow? Or be in a

:17:09.:17:16.

room full of bats at night under an Indian palace. Sound around you is

a research project put together by Salford University that asks people

:17:20.:17:24.

to capture a snapshot of sound from wherever they hear something

:17:24.:17:28.

interesting, and uploaded to a map to create a worldwide soundscape

:17:28.:17:35.

for everyone to explore. I never realised how fascinating everyday

:17:35.:17:39.

sounds from around the world could be until I'd started wandering

:17:39.:17:44.

around this map. You can download the audio clips as MP3 is if you

:17:44.:17:47.

find something you want to keep, and don't forget to leave a rating

:20:28.:20:32.

we have brought you as much from the consumer electronics show as is

:20:32.:20:37.

polite. Now it's time to rudely squeeze in just a little bit more.

:20:37.:20:40.

Here's some of the call tech from the show floor that Cork Richard

Taylor's eye. -- Court. Why simply content yourself with watching

:20:46.:20:48.

content when you can properly interact with it? Some interactions

:20:48.:20:52.

got all touchy-feely - multi-touchy feely as it happens. Other displays

:20:52.:20:55.

are less practical but definitely - and indeed by definition - way

:20:55.:21:00.

cooler. This technology from Russian startup Displair bounces

:21:00.:21:05.

the reflection of a standard tablet screen onto a wall of mist. A

:21:05.:21:08.

Kinect-style camera in the machine pick up your fingers movements and

:21:08.:21:15.

translates those back to the tablet. But in general tech and water don't

:21:15.:21:18.

tend to mix too well - which is why some outfits are getting the

:21:18.:21:23.

molecular miracle of nanotechnology to lend a helping hand. Now here on

:21:23.:21:28.

Click we like to bring you a bit of magic from time to time. But what I

:21:28.:21:32.

am about to show you is the real deal. And it is quite amazing

:21:32.:21:35.

tissue here and a tray of water when I submerge the tissue in the

:21:35.:21:45.
:21:45.:21:46.

water, it emerges bone dry! Not a drop of water on it. Now the magic

:21:46.:21:49.

at work here is actually on the surface of this tissue which has

:21:49.:21:52.

been coated with a special Nano layer which is a thousand times

:21:52.:21:55.

thinner than even one strand of hair, and its nanotechnology in

:21:55.:21:58.

action which you can see when I pour the water on here, it is

:21:58.:22:06.

totally water repellent. Enter the liquipod this is the machine that

could be found in a retail location perhaps the shop and which does the

in this chamber here- now the chamber then fills with this vapour

which nano coats your devices after about half an hour you'll be able
