phone their relatives they can pinpoint the ringtones. That is all

:00:00.:00:08.

for me. Now is for Click. Let us see, and got my wallet,

:00:09.:00:12.

smartphone, khakis, jackets, all ready for a night out. Good, that is

:00:13.:00:20.

better. From custom`made facial hair to an

:00:21.:00:43.

entire limbs, this week, Click looks at 3`D printing. We will visit the

:00:44.:00:49.

world's largest 3`D printing factory in America and find out how to print

:00:50.:00:53.

a house, a car, and even your own name on toast.

:00:54.:00:59.

We are also one omission to find out if the new Xbox one games console is

:01:00.:01:04.

out of this world. All that, plus the latest technology news and the

:01:05.:01:12.

apps that claim to be good for you. Welcome to Click. I just lie would

:01:13.:01:18.

take a breather before we start this week. It is going to be attacked

:01:19.:01:23.

programme here at the 3`D printing show in London. 3`D printing is all

:01:24.:01:29.

the rage at the moment. This technique of creating unique objects

:01:30.:01:31.

by building them up layer by layer, using a 3`D printer. Observe this

:01:32.:01:40.

3`D printed bedroom wall, HA, and a 3`D printed car. `` a chair. The

:01:41.:01:48.

rhetoric goes that in the future you will be able to 3`D print almost

:01:49.:01:53.

anything. Certainly, the show is packed with printers jiggling away,

:01:54.:01:57.

printing complex designs in a variety of materials. There is talk

:01:58.:02:02.

of a future where 3`D printing a work for your wardrobe and those who

:02:03.:02:06.

believe that beauty is on the inside. At the moment, most 3`D

:02:07.:02:15.

printed models are just decorations and novelties. The technology has

:02:16.:02:23.

not quite come of age yet. For example, although the shell of this

:02:24.:02:29.

car has been 3`D printed, it allows the design to between 20 customer,

:02:30.:02:34.

it would be much more expensive to mass produce identical engine parts

:02:35.:02:37.

using this technology, instead of established methods. So, will be all

:02:38.:02:45.

be driving around in custom, 3`D printed cards in the future? All

:02:46.:02:48.

will 3`D printing always remain a novelty, rather than the spark for

:02:49.:02:55.

the next industrial revolution. We went to America to find out.

:02:56.:03:09.

We are off to Minnesota, the blend of beautiful scenery, retail and

:03:10.:03:11.

leisure opportunities is renowned across the country. It is not just

:03:12.:03:22.

lakes, golf courses that make this the best place to live, it has one

:03:23.:03:26.

of the highest average family income is around. It is apparently because

:03:27.:03:36.

of this. This is the largest 3`D printing factory in the world. The

:03:37.:03:41.

machines here are printing projects for various industries including

:03:42.:03:44.

aerospace, medical, and even some top`secret defence project. 3`D

:03:45.:03:53.

printing is often described as the future of manufacturing. Here, 100

:03:54.:03:58.

printers are already churning out thousands of design stay and night

:03:59.:04:05.

for companies around the world. We call this technology stereo

:04:06.:04:11.

lithography, or 3`dimensional printing. The technology is not new.

:04:12.:04:19.

Additive manufacturing was developed in 1983. Applications are radically

:04:20.:04:25.

evolving. One of the exciting areas to me is materials. Right now we

:04:26.:04:30.

have 13 different types of plastics that we can run on a machine. There

:04:31.:04:37.

is over 77,000 thermoplastics available out there. There is a wide

:04:38.:04:44.

range of materials out there. As we bring more offerings, it will open

:04:45.:04:47.

up more opportunities for different applications. NASA is using the

:04:48.:04:51.

technology in its next rover project, with 70 parts 3`D printed

:04:52.:04:57.

on its latest space vehicle. They are only going to build one of

:04:58.:05:03.

those, maybe two. To go and do tooling for specialised components

:05:04.:05:11.

would be very high cost. It may cost $50,000 to create a tool to produce

:05:12.:05:15.

one part. This technology is perfect for that. We only need one of

:05:16.:05:23.

something. It is very unique. Closer to home, the 3`D printing revolution

:05:24.:05:28.

may help some of America's struggling cities. This is a town in

:05:29.:05:34.

Ohio, 100 miles south of the factory. It was at the heart of

:05:35.:05:41.

America's steel industry the decade. The industry collapsed years ago,

:05:42.:05:45.

and many people left. Now, 3`D printing is bringing you have to the

:05:46.:05:50.

city. The area has been renamed the technology belt. President Obama has

:05:51.:05:56.

committed to building the 3`D industry here. Last year we created

:05:57.:06:02.

our first technology Institute in our higher. A state`of`the`art lab

:06:03.:06:09.

where scientists are mastering 3`D printing. It is hard to imagine a

:06:10.:06:16.

revolution when you see it from the outside. This building was an

:06:17.:06:24.

abandoned furniture factory, now reimagined as a factory floor where

:06:25.:06:27.

people can come to learn about 3`D printing and Manufacturing. This

:06:28.:06:37.

first machine is from 3`D systems. This white material is a nylon

:06:38.:06:42.

material. It has all the mechanical properties of nylon 11. What would

:06:43.:06:47.

you make with this? Is useful for airspace, medical. The White House

:06:48.:06:56.

has invested in this project. $40 million has been invested by 80

:06:57.:07:01.

companies and universities. The project is managed by the National

:07:02.:07:04.

Centre for defence manufacturing and machining. So manufacturing 3`D part

:07:05.:07:09.

of the military is top of the agenda. Lockheed Martin is looking

:07:10.:07:16.

at putting some large titanium additive manufactured parts on the

:07:17.:07:19.

aeroplane. The main motivation is cost. We can use less material, we

:07:20.:07:26.

can source them faster. A large product that can take months to

:07:27.:07:33.

source, being aborted or in weeks is an advantage. 3`D printing is

:07:34.:07:38.

expanding rapidly at the consumer level. This is the make`up of

:07:39.:07:44.

factory in New York. It recently moved into a 50,000 square feet

:07:45.:07:48.

space. We are all about inspiring the next industrial revolution.

:07:49.:07:55.

People make things, and they do runs of 1000 or a few thousand things.

:07:56.:08:01.

For me, it is about empowering people to be able to make things,

:08:02.:08:04.

and really getting back to the basics in terms of manufacturing.

:08:05.:08:12.

Anybody would make a buck can a jump spot `` with AFL. Canon get a

:08:13.:08:19.

jumpstart. This is what the future of manufacturing could look like.

:08:20.:08:26.

Meanwhile, back here at the show in London, I have finally found my

:08:27.:08:31.

outfits for our fancy dress ball. I am going as Lady Gaga. Next is the

:08:32.:08:38.

latest technology news. TV company LG is investigating allegations that

:08:39.:08:42.

some of its TV Centre details about viewing habits back to the

:08:43.:08:46.

manufacturer, even if the user has activated a privacy setting. A US

:08:47.:08:52.

blogger has realised his TV with sending data. It was also sending

:08:53.:08:59.

information about the contents of his USB stick. And LG spokesman said

:09:00.:09:04.

it is planning to release a firmware update which should correct the

:09:05.:09:08.

problem. The latest controversial site to surface from the dark Web is

:09:09.:09:14.

an assassination market. A crowd funding service allows people to

:09:15.:09:17.

contribute towards the assassination of a bleak figures. So far the

:09:18.:09:23.

rustic fence proposal aside, with the chairman of the US Federal

:09:24.:09:26.

reserve being the highest price target, with over $70,000 against

:09:27.:09:33.

his name. The list also includes Barack Obama and the director of the

:09:34.:09:37.

National Security Agency. Both the US Secret Service and the FBI

:09:38.:09:46.

declined to comment. Finally, take a close look at this

:09:47.:09:57.

music video. It is a new interactive video from Bob Dylan's 1965 song

:09:58.:10:03.

like a Rolling Stone. Throughout the song, you can flip through the

:10:04.:10:05.

channels to your hearts content. The matter which one you want, everyone

:10:06.:10:10.

seems to be saying exactly the same thing. A really nice idea. I just

:10:11.:10:24.

wish I had thought of it. If you buy a new tablet or smart

:10:25.:10:48.

phone today, the chances are it will be out of date before the end of the

:10:49.:10:54.

year. If you had bought a new Xbox 360 or PlayStation three when they

:10:55.:10:58.

were first released, he would have got a Hughes out of it before it was

:10:59.:11:02.

superseded. However, that time is now upon us. We have a velvet roped

:11:03.:11:09.

off section under the TV, saving space for the next generation.

:11:10.:12:17.

This is all really rather embarrassing. Please excuse me while

:12:18.:12:20.

I slip into some aim a little bit more comfortable. `` something.

:12:21.:12:31.

Physically, the XBox One is not quite a lunar monoliths, but it does

:12:32.:12:36.

take up a fair amount of space. However, it's not just a game

:12:37.:12:40.

console. It has serious designs on taking over the living room. TV

:12:41.:12:44.

set`top boxes can be plugged directly into the device. The

:12:45.:12:49.

console can then control the set`top box and its features and functions.

:12:50.:12:52.

And depending on the country you live in, the XBox One can access a

:12:53.:12:58.

host of OnDemand TV and movie services. Under its rather 1980s

:12:59.:13:05.

looking plastic skin lurks a dual core processor, 500 gigabytes of

:13:06.:13:09.

storage and a Blu`ray player. It has slightly less processing grunt than

:13:10.:13:14.

its rival, the PS4. We don't yet know if this will make any

:13:15.:13:18.

difference to games in the long`term. Unlike the machine it

:13:19.:13:23.

replaces, the XBox One has been designed with a Kinect motion

:13:24.:13:27.

sensing device on the ground up. And the connect itself has undergone a

:13:28.:13:31.

number of improvements. It is a lot more accurate, can recognise a far

:13:32.:13:36.

greater number of articulation in my body, which helps with accuracy. And

:13:37.:13:41.

it's this device that really put some clear water between Microsoft

:13:42.:13:47.

's console and Sony rivals. Microsoft claims the Kinect camera

:13:48.:13:51.

is so precise it is capable of analysing a user's heart rate by

:13:52.:13:56.

looking at and detect the micro fluctuations in their skin, a

:13:57.:13:58.

feature which will be put to use in fitness titles. It is also used to

:13:59.:14:03.

recognise users to log into the console. After which, they are

:14:04.:14:09.

greeted by the user interface, which unsurprisingly, has a very Windows

:14:10.:14:15.

eight yield to its. The Windows eight layout might frustrate on PCs

:14:16.:14:19.

but makes a lot of sense for the Xbox. It's clear, simple and easy to

:14:20.:14:24.

navigate. One intriguing feature carried over from the old Xbox onto

:14:25.:14:27.

the new is speech recognition. The user can say a limited number of

:14:28.:14:31.

words to the device and it will recognise and react to them. The

:14:32.:14:36.

newer version of that has a much larger vocabulary. For example...

:14:37.:14:42.

XBox, go home. And it can open up almost anything on the home screen

:14:43.:14:48.

simply by talking to it. XBox, Call of Duty ghosts. It's this wider set

:14:49.:15:00.

of instructions that can be barked at the XBox One that makes it feel a

:15:01.:15:03.

little bit more like a next`generation console. When it

:15:04.:15:07.

works. As far as the games are concerned, visually, there are some

:15:08.:15:13.

obvious improvements. There is now a greater number of lighting effects

:15:14.:15:17.

and dust particles. Overall, there is just more detail in all the

:15:18.:15:20.

on`screen images and graphics feel smoother and slicker, as you would

:15:21.:15:28.

expect. Could some of the XBox One's exclusive launch titles exist

:15:29.:15:30.

on the current generation of machines? Possibly but they would

:15:31.:15:37.

not look anywhere near as pretty. There's a lot of discussion about

:15:38.:15:41.

the future of TV in the living room. OnDemand TV services, downloaded

:15:42.:15:47.

games and movies, web browsing controlled with a wave of a hand or

:15:48.:15:51.

a user's voice. The XBox One combines all of these elements right

:15:52.:15:56.

now, making it feel for better or worse a little like something from

:15:57.:16:02.

science fiction. Looking at the future of home

:16:03.:16:05.

entertainment. Now, earlier, I showed you my 3`D printed bedroom

:16:06.:16:09.

wall. This machine is a reminder that you don't just have to 3`D

:16:10.:16:12.

print in plastic or powder was present. You can print in a variety

:16:13.:16:18.

of different substances. This is printing a model of a house in clay

:16:19.:16:23.

and in the future, the project behind this wants to build a massive

:16:24.:16:26.

version of this thing and actually 3`D print full`scale homes of

:16:27.:16:34.

structures that could be done in just a matter of days. That's a

:16:35.:16:37.

pretty interesting vision of the future, if you ask me. Talking of

:16:38.:16:41.

which, we have been to Barcelona to see a 3`D printer that is making

:16:42.:16:46.

something even sweeter. If you thought your eye scorching

:16:47.:16:55.

blender was the hottest thing in tech, meet the new guy on the

:16:56.:17:02.

counter. This is a 3`D cooking guide. You may have seen 3`D

:17:03.:17:06.

printers crafting chocolate into unlikely arrangements and while this

:17:07.:17:11.

is not ashamed of its sweet tooth, the creators want to bring something

:17:12.:17:15.

a little different to the table. We are looking to go beyond chocolate

:17:16.:17:20.

or space food. We are looking at everyday food you would eat. From

:17:21.:17:26.

ravioli to pastor, decorating toast that might have for breakfast. The

:17:27.:17:32.

idea is to save you time making those fiddly foods without cutting

:17:33.:17:36.

corners on quality. One example is ravioli. When you make it, you have

:17:37.:17:40.

to put a layer of pastor, filling and then passed again. I don't know

:17:41.:17:46.

about you, but I have not made home`made ravioli in ages. I don't

:17:47.:17:50.

have the time. But with this, it takes all the hard work for me. This

:17:51.:17:56.

prototype can only print with one ingredient at a time, so if you want

:17:57.:17:58.

to make something more ambitious like a hamburger, you have to

:17:59.:18:03.

construct in a few steps. This all looks very, located but I'm told

:18:04.:18:06.

that the finished version will be much simpler. We have just had

:18:07.:18:10.

Halloween, so here's the design for a ghost made out of spinach

:18:11.:18:15.

ricotta. All I have to do is click print. This ghost has been printing

:18:16.:18:25.

for about five minutes and it's just going around, adding layers and

:18:26.:18:29.

making it bigger. I'm told you can eat this straightaway or put it in

:18:30.:18:35.

the oven and bake it. Costing around 1000 euros, it's pretty expensive

:18:36.:18:38.

for a time`saving device, especially if it just ends up in the back of

:18:39.:18:43.

your cupboard. The finished product has been designed to look more at

:18:44.:18:45.

home next to your toaster. That is of course if it does not replace

:18:46.:18:55.

your kitchen entirely. Another area that could benefit

:18:56.:18:58.

greatly from 3`D printing is medicine where it becoming possible

:18:59.:19:01.

to custom print instruments, assistive aids and even prosthetics

:19:02.:19:08.

that perfectly match the patient's. And we stick with a medical theme as

:19:09.:19:12.

we had to Webscape. There are already loads of apps out there to

:19:13.:19:17.

diagnose and treat you if you are not feeling too well. The question

:19:18.:19:19.

is, are they really any good for your health? Kate Russell has some

:19:20.:19:29.

answers. A 3`D printing is not new and healthcare. In fact, hearing

:19:30.:19:34.

aids are almost entirely produced using additive manufacturing. With

:19:35.:19:39.

more than 10,000,003`D printed units in circulation today. The other

:19:40.:19:44.

health tech sector that booming right now is smartphone apps. It's

:19:45.:19:48.

believed the mobile health market could be worth $26 billion in 2017

:19:49.:19:53.

but you should never just trust the claims of a developer when it comes

:19:54.:19:59.

to medical advice. This library of smartphone apps is worth a look.

:20:00.:20:04.

It's been put together by the NHS to vet and review any apps claiming to

:20:05.:20:15.

be good for your health full up this is one of those real peace of mind

:20:16.:20:19.

services, especially when it comes to apps offering advice and support

:20:20.:20:23.

for illnesses and conditions you might be getting medical treatment

:20:24.:20:28.

for. Obviously, no app is a good replacement for visiting your doctor

:20:29.:20:33.

if you have serious concerns. From conditions like diabetes, cancer and

:20:34.:20:38.

Parkinson's disease to healthy living categories covering diet,

:20:39.:20:41.

exercise and giving up smoking. There are already dozens of

:20:42.:20:45.

resources listed and the database is growing all the time. Wherever you

:20:46.:20:49.

live in the world, this is a great list to check before trusting any

:20:50.:20:53.

apps with your health and well`being. If you're still looking

:20:54.:21:08.

for a good replacement for Google's now to fund reader, News alert is

:21:09.:21:14.

worth a look. It has a gimmick interface that can help you teach at

:21:15.:21:20.

what stories you like so that you can filter out the noise. It has a

:21:21.:21:30.

free version and a premium upgrade and a premium upgrade with more

:21:31.:21:33.

features. If you are sitting there wondering what on earth is an RSS

:21:34.:21:37.

feed, it stands for Rich site summary. It's a way for a website

:21:38.:21:42.

deliver a standardised feed of regularly updated information like

:21:43.:21:46.

daily blog posts or news stories and a way for readers to collect those

:21:47.:21:50.

summaries using one piece of software rather than having to run

:21:51.:21:54.

all over the internet visiting sites individually. Now, how about some

:21:55.:22:02.

content for your new RSS feed? Visual news is one of my favourite

:22:03.:22:09.

blogs as it delivers double eclectic posts everyday that are driven by a

:22:10.:22:21.

really strong image. Another firm favourite for a different take on

:22:22.:22:24.

the news of the day is choose their dot`com. This blog is all about the

:22:25.:22:34.

writing and a starkly simple design that does not ring any bells or

:22:35.:22:37.

whistles to detract from the expert commentary. If you haven't

:22:38.:22:47.

discovered the blogging world yet, where have you been living? There

:22:48.:22:50.

are hundreds and hundreds of millions of blogs. Admittedly, some

:22:51.:22:56.

are a lot more readable than others. If you want to consider yourself a

:22:57.:23:00.

genuine fan of the genre, though, there is one blog you absolutely

:23:01.:23:04.

have to bookmark, the Ground Zero of the blogging phenomenon on. This is

:23:05.:23:16.

the Alpha blog. Set up in 1998 before the word blog was even

:23:17.:23:20.

coined, it is one of the longest continuing running blogs on the web.

:23:21.:23:24.

It's not fancy to look at but the range of content and stories is mind

:23:25.:23:29.

going. An old school blog roll where the content is definitely king and

:23:30.:23:32.

it's actually quite fascinating dating back to the archive to see

:23:33.:23:35.

what they wrote about through the years. Of course, if you have missed

:23:36.:23:45.

those links, you will find them all on our website. And if you would

:23:46.:23:50.

like to get in touch about any of the things you have seen this week,

:23:51.:23:53.

please do. We would love to hear from you. E`mail or get hold of us

:23:54.:24:00.

on Twitter, Facebook or Google+. That's it from the 3`D print show in

:24:01.:24:04.

London. Thank you for watching and we will see you next time.

:24:05.:24:23.

Not much wet weather to worry about for this weekend. Looking fine and

:24:24.:24:30.

dry for many of us. If you are venturing out through the early

:24:31.:24:32.

morning or have perhaps just come in, you will know that it is pretty

:24:33.:24:40.

chilly out there. Frost and fog. These are the temperatures that will

:24:41.:24:43.

greet you as you step outside during the early hours. Close to freezing

:24:44.:24:47.

and even one degree or so below in the countryside. Over the weekend,

:24:48.:24:52.

there won't be much change in the forecast. Chilly by day and by

:24:53.:25:03.

night. Saturday morning in Scotland will be a fine and I started the

:25:04.:25:08.

day. Drive but
