Have we got a present for you? There will be bouncing, bracing, knitting,
shaking and... It was the week before Christmas and
all through the house that team assembled at the click of a mouse.
Presence were shared, opened and praised to a great festive special
many a glass was raised. -- presents. Hello and welcome to the
Christmas special! Everyone is here, all the outfits and colours are
here. If you are wondering where LJ Rich is, she is here! Listen, apart
from the beautiful playing you have something else that will introduce a
vote of festive cheers? It is this. The a cappella app. That is truly
amazing. That is a beautiful thing. All singing in harmony. It is quite
fun to do. I know six people who would like to have a go at that and
be awful at it. Shall we? Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the
way... Babababab, jingle bells, jingle bells. ALL SING.
That is pretty special. You know who would be really good at that? It is
a shame he is not here. Dave Lee. Who is all the way in San Francisco!
But, fortunately, he is here the magic of technology! Come here.
Merry Christmas, everyone! Look at you! I am loving your wheels. Thank
you very much. I've lost a bit of weight. Earlier this year we all
went to South Korea and Dave, as well as your cutting edge tech
journalism, you did something extra special for our Christmas programme.
Tell us about it. I don't know if you have ever heard of Muck Bang, it
is about getting on camera, eating lots of food and generally being
crazy. I went to Korea and I did some of that with one of the guest
webcam stars in Korea. We had a lot of fun and an awful lot of bad food.
Yes, this is what happened. Good. Let's do it. Three, two, one.
Hello. What are we going to cook? That's a big sausage. This is going
in? Now we're talking. That smells very strong. No!
LAUGHS. Oh, no! What's happened? OK. OK, Dave. Dave! Brocade. I'll try
that. -- OK. You try some. Oh, God... I don't know how you
could possibly lose weight, having done that. You will notice that I
didn't exactly eat much of the food, kindly prepared for me by BJ
Biryong. Watching that back reminds me of how awful I felt that morning.
It was... Yeah, it wasn't particularly tasty. I'm not sure I
would make a very good Korean Muck Bang star. If I was, I might go for
something like a bacon sandwich. Something easy to eat. And maybe not
bouncing on a trampoline straight afterwards after. Thank you! Merry
Christmas! That's Davey, everyone! OK, reverse. Now, that's made me
thirsty. Fortunately... He can't see how far he is going back. Let's give
it a moment. There we go! Good. Right, who fancies a drink after
that? Fortunately, Mark has been mixing something special for us over
there. What I'm going to do is the perfect festive tipple with the aid
of this, which is a very posh set of scales which plugs into a tablet.
All you do is select the drink that you want to make from this enormous
list. You've got the ingredients. Make sure you've got all of those
before you start. Build. Basically, it tells you how much of an
ingredient you need to add. As it's a scale it is measuring how much of
any one of the liquids I am pouring in. This is the clever bit. If I
pour too much of any of the ingredients in, the app recalculate
and figures out how much of the other ingredients I need to add so
that the drink is absolutely perfect. It can even suggest drinks
based on the information you tell it about ingredients you have in your
cupboards. I might not be a cocktail palm and to do at least now have the
perfectly measured drink. -- barman. There you go. Get your laughing gear
around that. Fantastic. Thank you. Ah, yeah. I detect a hint of irony.
Thank you. Just a dash of sarcasm on the side. Spencer, stop what you're
doing. I've got a present for you. It is just underneath this. I.e.
Ready for the big reveal? I wondered what that was. You might be shocked.
What does it do please? If you could place the hearing. Ho, ho, ho, I
have a treat for you. Merry Christmas. See you next time. Love
you. It reads out tweets? That's right. It is looking at Twitter and
taking any tweets from the BBC that says Merry Christmas and reading
that out. Fantastic. Powell? Internet is a recipe pie. -- how? It
is connected to the internet. Did you write the code? Yes. That's
proper dedication to something so freaky. If you like it that much,
you can get your own recipe pie. It cost four quid and it will let you
make one of those. The same functionality. Fantastic! I am
flabbergasted. Let's keep it switched on and see if anyone tweets
us. Spencer... I've got a present for
you. I hope you like it. Here I go. Stop looking. You still don't know
what it is. It's a white box, thank you so much. This company aims to
use ethically sourced materials but instead of having to replace your
phone every couple of years because it has separate components that you
can easily change you should just be able to replace parts when they
break. Wow. You can easily open it, see you can see how they come apart.
You have to slide the two Bluebeard at the bottom. The screen comes off,
the battery can be easily changed and you can even replace the camera.
Why don't you try and take a photo? Let's do that. Say cheese!
Beautiful. Well, it is the holiday season, so everyone will be snapping
away. You've been away recently, Dan? Yes. I've been to Africa.
Testing some new camera kit. Before we do that, we do a version of this
programme in Farsi. We thought we would have a bit of a competition
while on safari in Malawi. To see who has the best camera gadgets. We
didn't really want to carry bulky cameras. And we want to see who has
the best shots. But gay. We won? BOTH: Me! -- OK.
Monkey! We've taken to the water to see who can take the best wildlife
shot with a smartphone and we've both those in some top gadgets to
help with that. First up, the DXO1. You just plug it
in. It fires up, click the lens hood and you are ready to shoot with all
of the options of a larger camera, including full manual control. I can
zoom in, in manual mode, and I've got full control of the shutter
speed, I get a low depth of field, really professional style shot. The
DXO1's Twenty20 is -- megapixel shots are stored on a USB card,
while a smaller version is said to your mobile for sharing. It features
a three-time optical zooms I can get closer without losing any
resolution. And the shutter speed can capture any fast moving action.
You didn't tell me how much it costs. $599. Almost as much as the
phone! OK, it's a little bit pricey, but three times zoom. If you are
after zoom, I've got something that will give you great zoom and it
works with any phone. She has found a snap zoom. You will need a pair of
binoculars for this. Just snapped them on to one side and fix your
phone onto the other. Now she has got the equivalent of a dig, Elke
telephoto lens. -- big, bulky. I just can't get close enough. I've
got the perfect shots. That's your full shot. Mine is
better but I'm further away. Very nice. But is that a screwdriver
you're fiddling with? Yes. It's awkward and fiddly, isn't it? It's
cheap, just $50. While you've been fidd well that, you've missed all
the wildlife. You've hardly taken a shot. Actually, no. I already 100
shots of the beautiful wildlife. Uh-huh.
This is the lesser-spotted snapcam. Snap it once for a photo and twice
to start videoing. This connects wirelessly to your phone so you can
easily feed your hungry social media accounts. Live streaming to YouTube
is expected next year. Supereasy to use. You can be busy
doing what you're doing and just take the shot. But the only thing is
all of these shots are quite wide, so the wildlife that we're out here
to see, you can't really take a picture of it. Well, that's the
choice you've got to make. Do you want to be present in the wildlife
and occasionally capture the memory on this or do you want some
artistic, decent shots? Both the snapcam and the DX 01 seemed
power-hungry, lasting just a couple of hours. So I've brought along the
world's thinnest solar charger to power up for the last chance at the
perfect shot. Time to agree on who has won.
Look at that. I mean that's a great shot of the elephants. That's an
amazing shot. Yeah, that's nice, but you couldn't zoom as much as I did.
Look how lose I got. It's just a bit of plastic there. It's just $50!
# Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer # Had a shiny nose
# But it was hard to text on... That's a sick outfit. I was a bit on
the sleeve but you can't tell. Your jumper is delightful. Thank you. I
designed it myself. Really? Well, sort of... I didn't want to risk
having the same jumper as you, so I went to customise my clothes just by
moving the mouse. It uses the same concept as 3D printing so it's as
cost effective to make 100 unique designs as it would be to make 100
of the same jumper. It's connected to industrial knitting machines in
Central London where the pattern prints out in a matter of hours.
Knit wear is delicate work and you still have to do the finishing
touches by hand and it's finished! At ?200 for a marino wool jumper, it
might not be for everyone, but you do get a custom label.
# Ork, the weather outside is delightful
# But the fire is so delightful # And since there's no place to go
# Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!
Ho, ho, ho, merry Christmas, Spencer. Merry Christmas. A hessian
sack. I haven't seen one of these since I jumped about in infant
school in one. Proper presents! Look at this! Unwrap! Unwrap! Incoming
present! Present is Dalek. Present is Dalek. Exterminate! One thing you
need to be able to do on Christmas Day is exterminate your relatives!
That's marvellous. I'll tidy that up later. That's beautiful. Because you
got so excited about this last week... Right. Not that I want to
spoil the surprise for you, I had a word with Santa and he managed to
find this very, um, sought-after... BB-8, everybody. I had a real one
last week and a toy one this time. That's the best reaction to a
present I've ever had. What? The raspberry? Inductive charging base,
trade wear, skill wear, hardware! It's got it all. And it's
app-controlled. I tried it out and I have to say my cat loves lifting its
head off by theary corral. She thinks it's the best one in the
world. That's fantastic. Look at this. It's got three modes. It's got
an explore mode, so you set it off and it explores and maps your areas
on -- area on its own. Have you to block off stairs and things like
that because it's not terribly intelligent about not going down the
stairs. It's got the drive mode where you can basically control it
and drive it your your smartphone app and it sends a holographic
message. No way! Like, "Help me, Spenley-wan-clickobi! You're my only
hope!" I'm so glad we rehearsed that. So this moves. That moves.
Race? Only one way to decide. Robot race. Race!
3, 2, 1... Go! On the south coast of England, the
royal citadel, a military base with a very unusual recruit. My job is to
hunt it down, dramatically. Overdramatically! Yes, it's a Dalek
that lives with the army. And not just any home-made Dalek, a Dalek
that was made by the Royal Citadel's vicar for a children's holiday club.
Now where would I find said vicar dressed as a Dalek? Ah... Finally,
we meet. Hello. Hello. You are in there? Yep. Can I help you off with
this? You most certainly can. OK. Here we go. I can't believe I'm
doing this. Wow. E! Oh! That's better. Oh, my word. What a...
Beautiful thing. Oh, my goodness. It's a mobility scooter that you've
modified. Absolutely. I'm counting on this in my old age, yeah, yeah.
You have actually weaponised this, haven't you? He fires a lethal dose
of carbon dioxide from a fire extinguisher. How you fit that in
there, I don't know. It is a bit of a problem. It did get me in trouble
once, actually. I was reading lines from inside the Dalek with a torch
and so on and I exterminated somebody with the CO2, and then
reached for my line but unfortunately the whole Dalek had
filled up with kids. The padre has done Davros proud. The thing really
zips along. But mind your ground clearance, vicar, are you might --
or you might lose your skirt. Ooh! That's gotta hurt! We're grounded!
Here it is - our exploded Dalek. The shell is made from MDF sat atop that
scooter with the shortened wheel base. Now we're going to put this
back together and then I'm going to get my Christmas wish. I'm going to
drive the Dalek. Front, back, front, you've got the front. Right, I only
need one more thing to become a Dalek. A chair. There you go. In you
go. Ha! Ha! I am a Dalek! I am a Dalek! I am a Dalek! Wow! Woo-hoo!
Wow, this is quite terrifying because all I can kind of see is
grey. Maybe this is why they went round exterminating everyone. They
just couldn't see properly and they needed things out of their way.
Right. Time to find out what the human soldiers here at the Citadel
make of their wheelie new recruit. Do not exterminate me. I am your new
recruit. Sorry. I was trying to extend my
plunger. Oh, well. Time for a good
old-fashioned briefing and a nice group hug.
After that, we'll be split into three sections... Looking forward to
going out on manoeuvres. I'm getting quite good at reverse. Have you
quite finished? Oh, I can't see. The vision's impaired. Pay attention to
the brief. Thank you. # I'm gonna spend my Christmas with
a Dalek # And hug it underneath the
mistletoe... Hairy toun! Did I miss anything? Sorry. Oh! Is that it? Are
we finished? Good. Right. End of programme. Thank you so much for
watching our Click-mas Special. On behalf of all of us, have a
brilliant festive season, goodbye and we'll see you in 2016. Merry
Christmas! Merry Christmas! # Hope you don't have to do the
dishes # Fa-la-la-la
# May your batteries last all day # Have a lovely holiday #
Fa-la-la-la-la! Ho-ho-ho, merry Christmas. You're
watching Click. Ho-ho-ho. Goodbye. Kiss-kiss.
