:00:00.:00:00.

more on the storms affecting the UK. Now on BBC News, it's time for

:00:00.:00:00.

Click. Copying music is so last decade.

:00:07.:00:14.

I've copied the music player and I think I have the scale of wrong.

I've copied the music player and I think I have the scale of wrong ``

:00:19.:00:18.

of it. This week on Click, copy anything,

:00:19.:00:37.

any time. We weighed into the battle over how to protect objects from the

:00:38.:00:43.

3D printing pirates. Pick a card, any card, but we will get our hands

:00:44.:00:47.

on the one card Mac that wants to replace them all. And if you are

:00:48.:00:51.

Christmas shopping and thinking of buying a tablet, we will provide all

:00:52.:00:56.

you need to know. Plus, the latest tech news and some of the most

:00:57.:01:00.

mouthwatering web fodder we have seen to date.

:01:01.:01:07.

Welcome to Click. And welcome to London's West End, where, if you

:01:08.:01:14.

hadn't noticed, it's Christmas! And it has been its mid`November. Down

:01:15.:01:17.

these streets, every designer goods you could ever want and almost

:01:18.:01:24.

afford. But what if you wanted your giant bottle of perfume but you

:01:25.:01:30.

didn't want to pay for it? What if instead you could wander into the

:01:31.:01:34.

store, take a few photos of it and use them to create your own copy for

:01:35.:01:42.

absolutely nothing? This expensive designer bottle will

:01:43.:01:49.

be much easier to replicate. Those 3D printing is we have been talking

:01:50.:01:53.

about print out ornaments. Earlier this year, we showed you how to take

:01:54.:01:57.

photos of the subject and turn them into a 3D CAD file which can be

:01:58.:02:04.

manipulated or 3D entered which means, in theory, designer goods can

:02:05.:02:09.

be copied to millimetre precision. And who's to stop you?

:02:10.:02:14.

Certainly not this guy. Cody Wilson rose to notoriety when he designed

:02:15.:02:23.

and 3D printing his own gun and then fired it. He was then named by wired

:02:24.:02:32.

back magazine as 15 of the most dangerous people in the world, as he

:02:33.:02:36.

made those plans available online. `` Wire magazine. I wasn't

:02:37.:02:45.

interested in the technology but I was interested in doing that. If

:02:46.:02:49.

it's going to be revolutionary, let's see you do something. But this

:02:50.:02:54.

comes from maybe even a generational dissatisfaction with the state of

:02:55.:02:59.

thing. `` things. We thought, could we get to even think we could do it?

:03:00.:03:04.

It was stupid to think we could do it but we did it. Cody has moved on

:03:05.:03:10.

to developing software to further an honour might bitcoin transactions to

:03:11.:03:15.

what he calls dark wallet. He is also working on a project called

:03:16.:03:20.

death CAD which puts 3D CAD files online to search and download for

:03:21.:03:22.

free. A kind of Pirate Bay and 3D free. A kind of Pirate Bay and 3D

:03:23.:03:29.

printing. People will provide the files you demand. Just like in

:03:30.:03:35.

Pirate Bay, people will leave comments, this is a good file. There

:03:36.:03:39.

will be services that validate files for you. Unqualified, yes. The music

:03:40.:03:49.

and movie industries have been fighting online piracy for years

:03:50.:03:55.

with limited success. Decisions like Metallica are famously campaigning

:03:56.:03:59.

against copyright infringement. But Cody can't see who would fight such

:04:00.:04:01.

a battle against the 3D thinking pirates. What's that Metallica

:04:02.:04:08.

moment? Who will sue us for using parts? I don't see an aggressive

:04:09.:04:13.

prosecution happening for people sharing such files. It's less

:04:14.:04:20.

narrow. I don't see there being as unified front for people attacking

:04:21.:04:25.

it. Companies can now printing multiple materials to make objects

:04:26.:04:31.

like this one piece camera. 3D systems launched two new printers

:04:32.:04:33.

this week, showcasing this technology. Exciting times for

:04:34.:04:38.

companies and consumers. The era were many `` the time when we can

:04:39.:04:43.

print out even collocated products at home is not far away. And as this

:04:44.:04:47.

technology becomes more available, companies are already exploring ways

:04:48.:04:57.

to fight those 3D pilots. `` pirates. An iTunes Store or treaties

:04:58.:05:04.

designs, this company has found a way to make that happen. The CEO

:05:05.:05:12.

showed us Sendshapes, its new product for transferring files. We

:05:13.:05:22.

found this Spotify for 3D printing. It allows you to get the design in a

:05:23.:05:26.

way that is protected but it allows you to use the printer in any other

:05:27.:05:29.

way you see fit. We won't stop you from is `` anything else. Senders

:05:30.:05:37.

select the design file, and to the recipient's e`mail address and then

:05:38.:05:38.

start the transfer. In our case, recipient's e`mail address and then

:05:39.:05:44.

start the transfer. In our case, that file is then shared with the

:05:45.:05:47.

person who print any more. It's uploaded to our service and we

:05:48.:05:50.

prepare it for the print on our servers and then we sent that

:05:51.:05:54.

design, literally line by line, into the printer. That way, the user

:05:55.:05:59.

never receives the image of the design, all he sees is a progress

:06:00.:06:05.

bar. And at the end, the Finnish `` finished product. Currently, these

:06:06.:06:12.

are the closest thing to 3D marketplaces. The idea of printing

:06:13.:06:18.

anything you want is mind`boggling. But the reality doesn't quite live

:06:19.:06:22.

up to the hype. There are plenty of 3D files for trinkets but not a lot

:06:23.:06:25.

of useful objects. With the exception of the miniature Titus. ``

:06:26.:06:34.

tartis. Most of us want to print more than bunny figurines but many

:06:35.:06:37.

designers are reluctant to release their designs into the wild.

:06:38.:06:42.

Just as pirated movies pop up on a torrent, so good prior treat 3D

:06:43.:06:52.

design. A 3D scan it could be used to duplicate the copyrighted

:06:53.:06:59.

object. If you think about what happens with videos right now, you

:07:00.:07:06.

Tube videos are generally organised. `` YouTube. You have a small pixel

:07:07.:07:13.

that changes colour. You can do something similar in 3D printing.

:07:14.:07:17.

Apply a watermark to the finished object that cannot be reversed.

:07:18.:07:21.

Experts say that could be a challenge. How do you in bed

:07:22.:07:26.

verification codes in the process that allow for the end user to

:07:27.:07:32.

verify things are correct, even though they have passed through the

:07:33.:07:36.

hands of people, you may have an incentive to switch things out or do

:07:37.:07:42.

things in a not correct way? It's just a lot of encryption map. If you

:07:43.:07:47.

do it well, I don't think it's impossible but it's a novel problem.

:07:48.:07:52.

Authentise will have to out an over its condition. Layer by Layer By

:07:53.:07:57.

Layer launched an online store where designers can sell their 3D where's

:07:58.:08:03.

securely, although again the items are more fun than functional. ``

:08:04.:08:09.

Layer By Layer. This site aims to secure users but users must secure a

:08:10.:08:16.

hardware site. It might hinge on partnerships with the right

:08:17.:08:18.

companies. Hardware, parts and toy stores come to mind. If it are

:08:19.:08:24.

conscious that, it may even help the shift towards more localised

:08:25.:08:31.

manufacturing. Got Lego loving kids? Then you know how panic sets in when

:08:32.:08:35.

a crucial block, like this one, goes missing. But if you can buy a 3D

:08:36.:08:43.

file of this precious purple piece from the manufacturing and printed

:08:44.:08:47.

at home, you can have a replacement in one hour, instead of waiting

:08:48.:08:53.

days. Technology that prevents toddler tantrums? I'll take it. A

:08:54.:09:00.

broken dispenser can render a dishwasher useless but this plastic

:09:01.:09:04.

part would easily be 3D printing. And that's just the start. The

:09:05.:09:08.

killer 3D printing application might be the one we have yet to dream up.

:09:09.:09:16.

Imagining a 3D future that is changing very rapidly. Talking of

:09:17.:09:21.

which, time to take a look at this week's tech news.

:09:22.:09:25.

More than 2 million passwords, used for sites like Facebook and Yahoo,

:09:26.:09:31.

have been stolen and posted online. It is believed a criminal gang

:09:32.:09:37.

harvested the material online but no one knows how all the passwords are

:09:38.:09:41.

and security experts have again reminded people to use different

:09:42.:09:44.

passwords for different sites and change them regularly. The world's

:09:45.:09:49.

first E Ink jewel screen smartphone has been launched by `` in Russia.

:09:50.:09:57.

The phone has one conventional LCD display and a second E Ink screen,

:09:58.:10:01.

allowing users to see the information they want without having

:10:02.:10:06.

to wait the phone up. Experts say it should significantly improve battery

:10:07.:10:09.

life. A British company has shown off a prototype machine of stopping

:10:10.:10:14.

cars and other vehicles using electromagnetic waves. The device

:10:15.:10:19.

uses radiofrequency pulses to confuse the vehicle's electronic

:10:20.:10:23.

systems, cutting its engine. The manufacturer says the system could

:10:24.:10:26.

be used by the military or police. Amazon Instant it wants to replace

:10:27.:10:33.

the friendly post it with these octocopters, which would deliver

:10:34.:10:38.

your orders from above. `` postie. That was announced in one of the

:10:39.:10:42.

biggest `` busiest shopping days of the year. But it has captured the

:10:43.:10:47.

imagination of Google, which has acquired several robotics companies

:10:48.:10:50.

in the last few months. One is Industrial Perception, outfitted to

:10:51.:10:55.

hide this robot. I wonder if it could get a job as an airport

:10:56.:11:01.

baggage hammer! `` baggage hammer. Christmas is boom

:11:02.:11:04.

time for the shops and the great card companies, because many of us

:11:05.:11:08.

will buy at least some of our presence using this. Maybe actually

:11:09.:11:19.

I'll use this one. No, maxed out. All I could ditch the pocket of

:11:20.:11:22.

cards and use just one of these instead. It's bizarrely a card

:11:23.:11:29.

called Coin. A new kind of payment system that stores all of your

:11:30.:11:35.

plastic cards in one. I'm going to expensive on the business card. I

:11:36.:11:40.

just tap this button to select the right card and that's it. Your

:11:41.:11:44.

current cards can be registered on the service by using the accompanied

:11:45.:11:48.

scanner to Pool B details into it at. But isn't it essentially owning

:11:49.:11:55.

a credit card? `` Pool B details. And what's to stop someone else from

:11:56.:11:59.

pinching your card and putting it? I put that to the fount of Coin. ``

:12:00.:12:06.

and cloning it. They entered their card into the system and we verified

:12:07.:12:10.

information. It doesn't allow anyone else to take information using Coin.

:12:11.:12:14.

It's actually better lock down in the US than a traditional piece of

:12:15.:12:21.

plastic. Other banks giving you your blessing to do this? Any new

:12:22.:12:26.

technology, when it comes out, it somewhat in the grey area. The rules

:12:27.:12:30.

haven't been Britain for something like Coin. Those conversations will

:12:31.:12:36.

now occur early to mid` next year, to make sure the partnerships are

:12:37.:12:42.

solid. In fact, Coin has several security features. If the card moves

:12:43.:12:46.

out of range of your Bluetooth smartphone, it deactivate and sound

:12:47.:12:51.

an alarm on your handset. When it is out of your range, out of your

:12:52.:12:56.

reach, and someone decides to skim your information, a Coin will have a

:12:57.:13:00.

skim alarm. If it detects fraudulent activity, it will tell you. It can't

:13:01.:13:08.

prevent it but it can detect it OK. Final question, why didn't you call

:13:09.:13:18.

it Card? I like the name Coin because coins have been around for

:13:19.:13:21.

ages and, to me, a representative of city. That was the call of the

:13:22.:13:35.

company. Simplify our user's lives. I cannot wait for the day when I do

:13:36.:13:39.

not even have to carry around one credit card. Once you saw is how you

:13:40.:13:42.

are going to pay for your Christmas presents, next, you will need some

:13:43.:13:47.

Christmas presents. We will be going through the tech choices for the

:13:48.:13:50.

special people in your life, and we start with tablets.

:13:51.:13:57.

Right now the marketplace is flooded with a number of different machines

:13:58.:13:59.

representing different operating systems. ROM Apple, we have iOS and

:14:00.:14:07.

its iPad, Google has its Android, which are manufactured by a whole

:14:08.:14:11.

host of different companies, and from Microsoft, there is Windows

:14:12.:14:16.

eight, and Windows macro `` Windows eight IT. This is the iPad Air. It

:14:17.:14:25.

has got a 9.7 inch screen, it has gone on a bit of a diet. It weighs

:14:26.:14:30.

less and it is slightly thinner than the machine it replaces. It comes in

:14:31.:14:43.

two colours and four flavours. Under the skin, it has an A764 processor,

:14:44.:14:51.

making the iPad Air is something of a portable computing powerhouse. It

:14:52.:14:55.

is very fast for a tablet, but he still managed to get about ten hours

:14:56.:15:00.

of juice from the batteries, which is a reasonable amount of time to go

:15:01.:15:04.

between charges. It enjoys the best App Store. This means the most

:15:05.:15:13.

popular apps can be found here. As it is an iPad, there are only two

:15:14.:15:17.

ways that you can plug other things into it, one is by the headphones

:15:18.:15:20.

socket, and the other is through the lightening port. It is also how you

:15:21.:15:26.

charge it. If you want to use things such as ST cards, you will have to

:15:27.:15:33.

get a fourth party per referral. That is the biggest problem it has

:15:34.:15:39.

is price. Oligarchs will regard it as being cheap. That becomes even

:15:40.:15:43.

more of a problem when it is compare it to some of the current crop of

:15:44.:15:52.

ten inch Android tablets. If price is a concern, this is the huddle, a

:15:53.:15:56.

cost`conscious Android tablet that is world spent. It does not bear the

:15:57.:16:01.

name of a giant consumer and electronics company, but actually

:16:02.:16:06.

comes courtesy of a store that you would normally purchase your

:16:07.:16:11.

groceries in. Available in a range of bright colours, its soft plastic

:16:12.:16:15.

case houses a seven inch screen, it is bright, clear and has a prewired

:16:16.:16:22.

viewing angle as well. It comes with 16 gigs of storage as standard, and

:16:23.:16:29.

there is a micro` ST slot. It has a quad core processor, but if you give

:16:30.:16:34.

it too much to do, it will struggle slightly. But if you do not have too

:16:35.:16:39.

many applications open, it is fine. You will get nine hours of the

:16:40.:16:44.

batteries. The Google Play store is almost as jampacked as its Apple

:16:45.:16:48.

counterpart. Tesco has made an addition to the normal experience,

:16:49.:16:54.

with a T Buckton. It provides direct access to the supermarket's online

:16:55.:17:00.

services. It is not the fastest tablets out there, but it is a solid

:17:01.:17:08.

and reliable option. Our final tablet uses the Windows eight arty

:17:09.:17:14.

operating system. It is produced by a recent Microsoft acquisition,

:17:15.:17:20.

Nokia. It is the snappily named Lumia 2520. Nokia's take features a

:17:21.:17:26.

full HD, 10.1 inch screen. It is a bit lighter than the other Windows

:17:27.:17:32.

RT device to surface from Microsoft. They are more like laptops that have

:17:33.:17:40.

had their keyboards taken away. This is not necessarily a bad thing. It

:17:41.:17:46.

certainly has an abundance of ports and plugs. The battery is good for

:17:47.:17:58.

ten hours as well. The tablet itself has a pre` good screen, which is

:17:59.:18:04.

really, really bright. It is a fast and responsive device and it comes

:18:05.:18:07.

fully loaded with Windows offers. Windows RT is not full fat. It is

:18:08.:18:14.

not compatible with old school Windows software, which has not been

:18:15.:18:17.

designed to work with the new style of interface. There are nearly

:18:18.:18:24.

130,000 apps in the Windows install and new ones are on the way all the

:18:25.:18:29.

time. It is a good tablets but it has a limited number of applications

:18:30.:18:34.

compared to its rivals. But it is reasonably powerful and has so many

:18:35.:18:38.

connectivity options that you can stick more things into it than a

:18:39.:18:47.

pincushion. Next week, we will be looking at

:18:48.:18:52.

smartphone accessories. What are the advantages of doing your Christmas

:18:53.:18:56.

shopping in online stores. Parking is really simple. It is you're so

:18:57.:19:01.

far. But if you are one of these crazy types, that likes to visit

:19:02.:19:08.

real shops, you may find this handy. It is an app that helps you

:19:09.:19:13.

find a parking space. Since we first looked at this project in April, it

:19:14.:19:17.

has undergone rigourous testing and it is now ready to be rolled out

:19:18.:19:22.

across much of London's west end. Once downloaded to your smart phone

:19:23.:19:26.

or tablet, it works of data from sensors in the road, that allow you

:19:27.:19:28.

to see where space is available. sensors in the road, that allow you

:19:29.:19:31.

to see where space is available You can see what type of space it is and

:19:32.:19:35.

then pay for your parking through your phone. It looks like the days

:19:36.:19:43.

of driving around for hours on end, eyeballing fellow drivers, may

:19:44.:19:47.

finally be over. If only somebody would actually get me a car. Of all

:19:48.:19:52.

the online phenomena, YouTube has to be one of the most remarkable. The

:19:53.:19:58.

figures speak for themselves. It is less than ten years old but it gets

:19:59.:20:02.

over 1 billion visitors every month, and 100 hours of BDO are

:20:03.:20:09.

uploaded every minute. Steve Cgeb and Chad Hurley are the guys behind

:20:10.:20:13.

the idea. Now they have come up with a brand`new one to add to your

:20:14.:20:18.

collection. The guys behind YouTube know their

:20:19.:20:25.

online video. Their latest venture, a free video recording, editing and

:20:26.:20:30.

sharing app for iPhone and Android, is no exception. It is the social

:20:31.:20:39.

twist in the tale that sets this apart from the crowd a little. You

:20:40.:20:50.

might have noticed that there are quite a lot of video editors around

:20:51.:20:55.

right now, Vine, Instagram is even getting in on the action, but where

:20:56.:21:01.

this app is different, it lets users remixed and add two videos made by

:21:02.:21:05.

other users, so that over time, the film get a clear grows with views

:21:06.:21:12.

from everybody's spec did. Each clip is limited to 16 seconds, but you

:21:13.:21:17.

can record them in a string, and once shared, they can be mixed again

:21:18.:21:23.

and stitched together. They can be up to an hour while long. To see the

:21:24.:21:29.

full clip, I have posted it in our social streams. FIFA is not just

:21:30.:21:39.

about the World Cup every four gears. On Friday, the draw for the

:21:40.:21:43.

World Cup finals in Brazil took pace. To mark the occasion, the

:21:44.:21:50.

official FIFA app was made available, free on iOS and Android.

:21:51.:21:54.

You can now track and follow all the key moments, customising your feed

:21:55.:21:59.

to show the results that matter to you. FIFA say it will unlock

:22:00.:22:03.

hundreds of competitions, thousands of goals, and over 1 million minutes

:22:04.:22:07.

of football every single week through the competition. With the

:22:08.:22:23.

festive season now well under way, the Lambrini bodyguard app launched

keep track of your booze levels, to drink responsibly, and UK users can

:22:32.:22:36.

tap into the get me home feature, which has information about the best

:22:37.:22:40.

route home, including the last train or bus schedules. You can even use

:22:41.:22:44.

it to send a message to your friends when you are leaving the party and

:22:45.:22:47.

when you get home, just in case you have had too much fun to type it in

yourself. Now it is time to learn how to do

:23:02.:23:05.

the perfect steak. It will change the way that you cook steak for

:23:06.:23:10.

ever. That is just one of the tasty treat served up by TV chef Jamie

:23:11.:23:15.

Oliver in this free channel stuffed full of great cooking videos. It is

:23:16.:23:22.
