European destinations are expected to be delayed. This is BBC News. In


ten minutes, we will have the Film Review. First, Click.


Welcome to Click. More and more of us are using our mobile devices to


do pretty much everything in our lives these days. When you switch


them on the chances of... Are we in? This should be yours. A keycode, if


you like, that you have to enter. It's yours. It's yours. Don't worry.


I actually do work for the BBC and Mike has come along for the ride. We


want to show you something they didn't want to show you ` a hack and


a serious hack at the world's most important hacking convention.


Defcon. Running since the early '90s, Las


Vegas hosts this annual semi secretive shindig for the world's


cameras. `` hackers. It only let cameras in three years ago. We're


going in under the wire, literally, to the casino resort where


government agents rub keyboards with cyber criminals. Everybody is told


to play nicely. This is no ordinary gathering. Leave your phone


connected to Wi`Fi or Bluetooth and someone will probably hack it and


posted here, for to see. Everyone should know better. Of course


visitors do just that each other. Presenters go public about how to


bring down anything from a toaster to an aircraft. These guys


specialise in cars. This year they have ranked them on how easy they


are to hack. In the past they've taken over the brakes and steering


controls by plugging into a laptop. Here is the no break attack. I can't


stop it right now. Obviously that's a very dangerous attack. `` so far


there's not a lot of risk. It's pretty hard to hack your car but in


a few years it will be easier. We want car Manufacturer is fixing


things now, instead of waiting until there is a problem. This year they


showed just how dumb are so`called smart cities could be. Imagine the


traffic in Las Vegas grinding to a halt. Sensors embedded in the road


detect cars and send that information to receivers. The data


is used to switch the traffic lights to avoid congestion. Without


encryption of that data, it's possible to send fake information


that could lead to a traffic jam or accident. And even to upload new


software to do the job remotely. He's released all the information


publicly at Defcon and insists publishing the hack is the right


thing to do. This is not my fault. I'm just pointing out the problem.


I'm not creating it. If I keep quiet the problem will remain there.


Sooner or later someone as we know it ` it could be someone with bad


intentions. Pretty scary stuff. What do you make of that? It is pretty


scary, isn't it? We have devices out there in our roads that are


vulnerable to very, very basic attacks so there's no authentication


on the devices. There's no encryption. That's inexcusable. The


scariest thing is this equipment is bought by government and they aren't


checking the security of these devices. It makes me wonder what


else is out there? Defcon is also about having fun. There are rooms


where you can test your lock picking or wireless hacking skills. You can


hack your hat. Or your hair. Often it's people who are the weak link to


data security, so over to the social engineering room where two actors


were making fake calls to real companies trying to illicit


compromising information. It's illegal to film this conversation in


the US but both attempts we witnessed hit gold.


In the last call we found out this company still uses Windows XP, still


is on Internet Explorer, a lower version. Hacking is a family


business here. Children are allowed in and encouraged to steal each


other's passwords. You could break into their account. Jeff created


both Defcon and Black Hat and defends blowing the cover


this information. Organised crime don't tell us what they're doing. We


have to find out ourselves, and protect ourselves. Conferences


like this, whether they're in the UK, France or America, they're one


of the few ways we have the information out to what's going on


that's not being filtered by a company or a government. This is


what's really happening. For the most part, these aren't the bad


guys. They love making things work even better and exposing


vulnerabilities for companies who ought to know better to fix. And


intercepting satellite broadcasts, yeah, that's included. Cheers.


Have you ever had a museum completely to yourself? Me neither.


Imagine what it would be like to Rome to place after the doors have


shot for the night. Don't worry, no one hungry dinosaurs or even Ben


Stiller to worry about. Just a horde of robots and Lara Lewington.


Fortunately, these bots aren't trying to take over the world.


They're just after a bit of culture. For the last week, the main


attraction in the Tate Britain's Galleries hasn't been the Constables


or the Hockneys, it's been four remote controlled robots. Visitors


to the Tate Britain's After Dark website have been given the chance


to explore galleries filled with 500 years of priceless art, all from


their laptops. This isn't about creating an alternative to actually


visiting an art gallery, it's about a totally different experience. How


often is it that you actually operate a robot anyway? The idea is


that you can move around the gallery, turning left or right,


looking up or down. If you reach a dead end, these sensors will light


up red, which means you need to reverse and replan your journey.


David and the rest of the team at the studio won the ?70,000 IK Prize,


a competition to encourage innovative digital uses of the


museum. We've been lucky enough to work on a number of jobs with


different museums recently. We are fortunate because we get to walk


around the galleries at night in the dark. You're basically looking at


these paintings by yourself and it's an amazing experience. For a long


time we wanted to make this project a reality. A team of art experts


have been on hand to provide live commentary about anything


interesting the bots. `` bots spot. Who hasn't dreamt of going around a


gallery after dark alone and encounter those wonderful art


objects and see what happens in the gallery after dark? It's something


that I, working in the gallery, have done, but the idea of extending that


to anybody sitting in an armchair at home is fantastic. What a brilliant


idea! The robots also have built in proximity sensors that can kill


power and movement if they touch anything in the gallery. So, while


this could be the easiest way to spend a night in a museum, it is not


claiming to be the experience of visiting a gallery yourself. Lara


Lewington spending a night at the museum, virtually, of course. This


month marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.


More than 16 million people died in the fighting and while it can be


difficult to comprehend the magnitude of that event, one BBC


show is using modern techniques to try to make the conflict relevant to


a modern audience. Muddy trenches, bullets through the air. Life or


death decisions that have to be made in seconds. This is Our World War,


another programme aiming to show the First World more from their point of


view of the soldiers who fought in it. It might look like a period


drama but the team behind it have also created what they call an


interactive episode. It brings elements of a game and stories


together to present you with an experience that, if you are 16 to


24, you recognise and perhaps become more engaged with it because you


have a role to play. You go from being viewer to participants and


that should be satisfying. This episode will be available on tablet


and desktop and invites the viewer to make choices that could affect


the story. Participants can also unlock bonus footage and experience


animated back stories, as well as feedback and analytics on the


decisions they've made. I chose to take the injured soldier prisoner.


Apparently that was the correct decision to make. I have no idea


whether the decisions I just made will lead to a bad or not quite so


bad result. The decisions become harder and harder as you work your


way through. The last decision is really critical and very difficult.


Unbeknownst to you, what's been happening is we have been scoring


your tactics and morale. But the main antagonist in the film also has


an opinion on your decisions and this is perhaps the cleverest bit.


He will or will not help you in your last decision, I won't give it away,


depending on the decisions you've made. If he thinks you are right all


the way through and his morale has been high then he will help you. If


not, he won't help you. The episode has been put together with the help


of CGI and animation studio MI, who have designed the user interface and


hope to offer a seamless video experience. The programme makers


even believe this could bring in a new era of interactive


entertainment, that combines the best elements of gaming and drama.


That's it for the short version of click. Much more in the full`length


version online. And we are always keen to hear your thoughts on


anything going on in your world, at least if it is tech related. We


don't know what you had for dinner and no more cat pictures. We are on


Google+, Facebook, Twitter and e`mail. Thanks for watching and see


you next time.
