This week, big tax funds with three web geeks. Bouncing my goggle eyed

:00:00.:00:15.

guinea pigs. And they crash proves a salad

:00:16.:00:19.

spinner. Scrub that, it's just a salad

:00:20.:00:20.

spinner. And it's a happy New Year from

:00:21.:00:51.

everyone here at click. 2016 can now properly get started now I've

:00:52.:00:58.

finally got my new smart umbrella. Yes, it's the umbrella, a brolly

:00:59.:01:04.

with a chip in it which measures the weather where you are and tells

:01:05.:01:08.

everyone else by uploading and information to a website. It also

:01:09.:01:12.

pays your smartphone if you walk off without it. Silly! Yes, this is

:01:13.:01:19.

where text goes large. It's the annual consumer Electronics show. In

:01:20.:01:24.

Las Vegas. It's here, it's over here and it's all the way over there.

:01:25.:01:32.

They do, isn't it? This is a serious affair. Where else could you be

:01:33.:01:37.

woken up not by a sound but by a smell? With this olfactory alarm

:01:38.:01:41.

clock. The sense of weight claims to rouse

:01:42.:01:45.

you within two minutes by blowing air through a cartridge full of

:01:46.:01:49.

balls. Choose from a variety of smells including... Toast.

:01:50.:02:07.

Chocolate. Cough is. Mints. Grass. Holidays. It's kind of smells like

:02:08.:02:15.

suncream. What about the smell of money? Dispensed by an ATM using my

:02:16.:02:23.

locks, iris recognition technology. This is a company advancing

:02:24.:02:26.

biometrics into new areas, including unlocking your car.

:02:27.:02:30.

This seems like a decent concept, maybe even adapting the driving

:02:31.:02:35.

variants depending on who is being identified as being in the driving

:02:36.:02:40.

seat. Cars are big screen this year. Bring

:02:41.:02:44.

on the concepts which the car-makers hope will show they're not just

:02:45.:02:48.

using tactics with all those emissions tests.

:02:49.:02:50.

Who even needs emissions when you got the future, an Internet

:02:51.:02:59.

connected electric concept car with a smartphone dock and the top speed

:03:00.:03:06.

of 200 miles an hour and arrow tunnels through the body to reduce

:03:07.:03:09.

drag and cool those batteries? The chassis is modular and you

:03:10.:03:16.

easily add more batteries or change the outer shell for a different

:03:17.:03:21.

look, to turn it into a pick-up truck, for example.

:03:22.:03:26.

No, I think I'll keep my like this. Going to cover auto technology in

:03:27.:03:29.

film next week but I did manage to catch up with Ford's CEO, Mark

:03:30.:03:35.

Fields, who invited developers to work on ideas for cars and drones

:03:36.:03:41.

and how they might interact. And more realistically how your car

:03:42.:03:45.

might connect to your home, your phone and the rest of the world.

:03:46.:03:50.

We are bunch of geeks on this programme. We love to talk dirty.

:03:51.:03:55.

Would you mind talking dirty for a few minutes?

:03:56.:04:03.

Sure. In ten or 15 years, I can control my car, control my home.

:04:04.:04:08.

Check the status of my car without leaving my house. What sorts of

:04:09.:04:12.

things will we be able to do in the future?

:04:13.:04:15.

When you look at your car, your car will be able to control a lot of

:04:16.:04:19.

elements of your life. For example, as you are driving you will be able

:04:20.:04:23.

to control elements in your home, whether you are approaching

:04:24.:04:26.

homeowners want to shut off your security system or turn lights on or

:04:27.:04:32.

unlock doors, you can use your vehicle to make your life easier in

:04:33.:04:38.

terms of where you are travelling to, your next appointment, and the

:04:39.:04:42.

vehicle will be able to sense the traffic conditions, re-route the

:04:43.:04:45.

vehicle. Why not just let the smartphone be

:04:46.:04:50.

the brains? Let that be the brains of the operation? Why bother trying

:04:51.:04:55.

to make cars independently smart? For a couple of reasons. When you

:04:56.:04:59.

are in a car, what's important is destruction. We don't want... Our

:05:00.:05:05.

approach is to keep people's eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. If

:05:06.:05:09.

you need to do things while you are in your car, that's really hard if

:05:10.:05:11.

you're going to be looking at your phone and it's pretty dangerous. Our

:05:12.:05:16.

approach is how to integrate the smartphone into the car to allow you

:05:17.:05:21.

to do it safely, productively and also, at the same time, responsibly.

:05:22.:05:27.

Let's talk about driving. Do you think we are close in any way to

:05:28.:05:32.

having a world where also list driving as part of everyday life?

:05:33.:05:36.

I think we have to put autonomous driving into perspective. The term

:05:37.:05:40.

is being thrown around a lot in the industry. There are five levels of

:05:41.:05:44.

autonomous driving as defined by the Society of automotive engineers. The

:05:45.:05:48.

first three levels require the driver to always be able to take

:05:49.:05:55.

control. For example, level one is cruise control. Level two is traffic

:05:56.:06:04.

jams. Level three are things like Tesla's autopilot. We are choosing

:06:05.:06:08.

to level four. Level four is autonomy in a defined area where the

:06:09.:06:14.

driver does not have to be ready to take control. That's what we're

:06:15.:06:18.

aiming for. Defined area meaning a physical

:06:19.:06:20.

space? Yes. Level five is the ultimate,

:06:21.:06:26.

where the vehicle can be fully at tournaments with no driver

:06:27.:06:30.

interaction in any location or any weather situation. By the end of the

:06:31.:06:35.

decade, we think there will be a vehicle on the marketplace with red

:06:36.:06:40.

literary environment updates. It may not be asked because our approach is

:06:41.:06:44.

when we come out with an autonomous vehicle, we want to make sure it's

:06:45.:06:48.

safe, it works and is intuitive. Most importantly, it's accessible to

:06:49.:06:53.

everyone not just people who can afford luxury cars.

:06:54.:06:59.

No announcement from Ford unexpected time. Google's car division may come

:07:00.:07:05.

at this week's show. I'm fed up with me so that hit the

:07:06.:07:11.

show floor. These are the augmented reality

:07:12.:07:14.

glasses. Inside, they have these lenders which project images or

:07:15.:07:19.

graphics in front of the vision of the wearer. When I put them on, I

:07:20.:07:23.

can see an image which looks like it is a couple of feet in front of me

:07:24.:07:27.

but I can still see the real world behind the graphics on screen. These

:07:28.:07:32.

are totally self-contained. It supposed to have the confusing power

:07:33.:07:36.

of eight tablets. I have this little ring controller which reacts to

:07:37.:07:39.

gestures as well as having buttons as controls. The designers imagine

:07:40.:07:47.

it will be used for playing games, designing websites. Augmented

:07:48.:07:50.

reality has a heap of potential for people that want to view 3-D models

:07:51.:07:55.

from every conceivable angle. One of the big trends is 3-D

:07:56.:08:01.

printing. What's amazing is how far the personalisation of products has

:08:02.:08:05.

come along. My entire outfit was made on a 3-D printer. It was made

:08:06.:08:12.

on a very small printer. It used one kilogram of filament and took 70

:08:13.:08:17.

hours to make. In 2016, a whole

:08:18.:08:23.

... You need specialised 360 degrees camera rigs, which is exactly what

:08:24.:08:36.

this is. It's called a gyro optic and it is a 360 degrees camera. It

:08:37.:08:39.

captures video in surrounds using three lenders.

:08:40.:08:46.

From this vantage point, we can see the MGM Grand hotel, Excalibur as

:08:47.:08:51.

the New York, New York hotel and casino in one shot, as well as Nick

:08:52.:08:57.

on the camera. Crucially, what this camera does is

:08:58.:09:00.

stitch is together all of the images it shoots itself, so that everything

:09:01.:09:06.

it shoots is immediately viewable in 360 degrees on sites like YouTube.

:09:07.:09:23.

Welcome to two is starting to take new orders for its handset. With a

:09:24.:09:30.

price tag of $599, we will see how much your it's really want virtual

:09:31.:09:34.

reality. HTC's headset won't be far behind.

:09:35.:09:38.

It was due to launch last month but was delayed due to a major

:09:39.:09:42.

breakthrough. What that breakthrough is is this front facing camera that

:09:43.:09:47.

means when you're totally lost in a world of virtual reality, real-life

:09:48.:09:50.

objects will still be seen through this. I'm walking across the

:09:51.:09:58.

shipwreck. Oh, suddenly, on top of the shipwreck, I'm seeing a great

:09:59.:10:03.

which is what is the real wall, I think. I'm not going to bump into

:10:04.:10:07.

anything. At the moment, I feel like I'm bumping into a lot of things

:10:08.:10:10.

that aren't real. There is a well just there!

:10:11.:10:16.

The moment of coming back to reality is even more weird than the moment

:10:17.:10:22.

you start in the virtual world. I now feel really odd how I've been

:10:23.:10:26.

behaving, what I been doing. Throwing my Arms around and telling

:10:27.:10:29.

you about what's been happening. The bonus is that you can't bump into

:10:30.:10:34.

things. Wearables are big screen here. Fitness has launched what they

:10:35.:10:38.

refer to as a smartphone is watched. It's called the blaze and they hope

:10:39.:10:42.

it's going to take on the likes of Apple and the android watchers out

:10:43.:10:45.

there. The blaze provides notification

:10:46.:10:48.

alerts, allows you to control the music on your smartphone and has

:10:49.:10:55.

interchangeable straps. A 200 -- at $200, it is less costly than most

:10:56.:11:00.

smart watches. Like all other devices from this brand, its main

:11:01.:11:05.

focus is on fitness. It can track sleep and workouts and automatically

:11:06.:11:09.

detect a range of activities, including tennis, football and even

:11:10.:11:14.

is that. With competition getting fierce,

:11:15.:11:17.

many of the trackers are upping their game. This is misfit Ray. As

:11:18.:11:23.

well as sleep and activity tracking, it can take self 's and control

:11:24.:11:26.

lights and music. It still looks like an activity

:11:27.:11:31.

tracker. This is an automatic -- -- it can

:11:32.:11:37.

identify activities like swimming. It looks simple but it's waterproof.

:11:38.:11:42.

The battery will last up to eight months. Plus it can also be worn

:11:43.:11:47.

like this if you want to conceal it under your clothes.

:11:48.:11:50.

But I know first-hand that data collected from activity trackers can

:11:51.:11:54.

vary massively. So maybe these under are smart

:11:55.:11:58.

sneakers could solve that problem. They have a chip embedded inside

:11:59.:12:02.

them that accurately measures your distance.

:12:03.:12:08.

The shoes can store approximately five runs locally before needing to

:12:09.:12:15.

be synced up to its app. Four years, CES was all about who

:12:16.:12:19.

had the biggest TVs. These days, is also about who has the bendy is. LG

:12:20.:12:26.

wins for me this year with a prototype of a roll-up displays that

:12:27.:12:31.

one day might mean our computers greens and televisions could be

:12:32.:12:34.

unrolled only when needed, to save cluttering up the place.

:12:35.:12:39.

Four K and eight case greens are in full the facts. This year, there's

:12:40.:12:44.

also a lot of talk about something called HDR, high dynamic range.

:12:45.:12:48.

These are screens that can show many more levels of detail in the

:12:49.:12:52.

brightness of the picture, which means Jen's sequence should look

:12:53.:12:56.

more fabulous. Here is the boss of streaming

:12:57.:13:02.

service Netflix announcing that he will be streaming HD content to HDR

:13:03.:13:06.

Eddie screens later this year. He also told us that he has just

:13:07.:13:13.

expanded Netflix to an extra 130 countries. Meaning he now serves

:13:14.:13:18.

nearly the whole world. With one big exception, China.

:13:19.:13:23.

What do you have to do to get into China?

:13:24.:13:26.

We know to great role models for us or Disney and Apple. They have been

:13:27.:13:30.

incredibly patient at developing their Chinese business and working

:13:31.:13:32.

on the relationships first and the business second. Those are our role

:13:33.:13:38.

models. We're not in any hurry. Getting to know the partners,

:13:39.:13:42.

government officials, consumers. In the rest of the world, like the

:13:43.:13:48.

Philippines, have been great for us. Korea, Singapore, India, Russia,

:13:49.:13:52.

Poland, Turkey. Lots of people will be phased by the

:13:53.:13:56.

choice of buying a new TV. Four Kaoru HDR? Which is more important

:13:57.:14:02.

in the viewing experience? When people see HDR, they will be

:14:03.:14:06.

ready and pressed. HDR will be on top of four K so you will eventually

:14:07.:14:11.

get both. I think that's a great insight. The big wow will be HDR.

:14:12.:14:20.

How important is it for a streaming service to have exclusive content?

:14:21.:14:26.

Is one path to success. The part we are choosing to have great content

:14:27.:14:29.

but only on Netflix. I'm sure other panthers accessible to.

:14:30.:14:34.

We are starting to see people make programmes in 360 degrees. It's a

:14:35.:14:41.

very different viewing experience. You're not just looking in one

:14:42.:14:45.

direction. You interested in experiments in virtual reality and

:14:46.:14:50.

360 shooting? Would you shoot one of your programmes in 360?

:14:51.:14:55.

Than you can only be seen on a VR platform. We are really focused on

:14:56.:15:01.

these big smart TVs and HDR. We are focused on incredible movies and

:15:02.:15:06.

incredible TV shows, not so much on BR.

:15:07.:15:09.

Do you think innovation in stringing services is done now? Have you got

:15:10.:15:12.

it nails or is there more to be done?

:15:13.:15:18.

There is so much work at hand. Think about now when you click and get a

:15:19.:15:24.

little buffer. That is awful. That has to go away.

:15:25.:15:28.

Ready you stand on net neutrality? Do you believe all streaming

:15:29.:15:34.

services should be treated equally? You are competing and in a

:15:35.:15:37.

commercial environments. Do you think you should be able to talk to

:15:38.:15:42.

ISPs and pay for extra speed, paper quality of service?

:15:43.:15:46.

We want to invest so that everybody gets a great experience. And as long

:15:47.:15:53.

and the BCI player, everybody should get a great experience. No one

:15:54.:15:55.

should try to block anybody else. It has to be said that the UK

:15:56.:15:59.

in January It is one of the reasons

:16:00.:16:01.

we like coming to Las Vegas for CES, Do we really have to film outside

:16:02.:16:06.

in the rain at night? Yes, we said we would do a piece

:16:07.:16:18.

on solar-powered tech. That is why I brought

:16:19.:16:22.

these things out. These are made for

:16:23.:16:29.

the developing world. The idea is you just light them up

:16:30.:16:32.

and use them as lanterns. Press your buttons, ladies

:16:33.:16:37.

and gentlemen, and you will see either a change in colour

:16:38.:16:39.

or a change in luminosity. Now that you mention it,

:16:40.:16:41.

I am wearing a patch The sun emerged for a couple

:16:42.:16:51.

of hours so I raced out and put It is a UV patch designed

:16:52.:16:56.

to monitor your intake It uses a dye that changes colour

:16:57.:17:00.

from blue to white depending on how much sun you have taken

:17:01.:17:08.

in It is perhaps the most thin and flexible way of monitoring UV

:17:09.:17:12.

exposure that we have seen. It is waterproof and can

:17:13.:17:16.

be worn for five days. Loreal says it will use

:17:17.:17:24.

an app in the future. But you have to take a photograph

:17:25.:17:26.

everyday to get a more accurate The company says it will give away

:17:27.:17:29.

this patch later this year for free. Well, I found an alternative power

:17:30.:17:35.

supply for one of these. A situation that battery

:17:36.:17:41.

hungry smartphone owner One solution for smartphones

:17:42.:18:03.

with dead batteries is this, a hand crank built into

:18:04.:18:15.

the smartphone case. Simply pull it out,

:18:16.:18:18.

turn it around... Five minutes of cranking should give

:18:19.:18:21.

you about 20 minutes of talk time or an hour's worth

:18:22.:18:25.

of smartphone usage. Now, there's lots of handcranks

:18:26.:18:31.

around, but this is the first that's At the moment it only works

:18:32.:18:34.

with the iPhone. That means you will not have

:18:35.:18:38.

to worry about your phone running out of power,

:18:39.:18:40.

but you still might have the problem Because, I have been

:18:41.:18:43.

cooking our dinner all day on this, I loaded it with a banana

:18:44.:18:54.

in for an example earlier These reflectors absorb

:18:55.:19:00.

the heat and keep it in. It is the same thing you get

:19:01.:19:06.

in solar-powered water heaters On a sunny day it can get up to 300

:19:07.:19:10.

Celsius. And it keeps the heat

:19:11.:19:15.

for a really, really long time. With the weather from today,

:19:16.:19:19.

anything in there will be Well, actually, even today,

:19:20.:19:21.

with maximum cloud cover, The company is working on a version

:19:22.:19:25.

that will work at night because it I forgot to put

:19:26.:19:38.

the proper food in. I have come to the world's largest

:19:39.:19:48.

pinball museum to play a few games. This is The Fly, a uniquely

:19:49.:20:01.

spherical personal flying robot. The same weight and

:20:02.:20:17.

shape as a football. It's Kickstarter campaign says

:20:18.:20:20.

it is is the world's safest drone. And it might be the

:20:21.:20:25.

world's cutest, too. So, what makes it different to other

:20:26.:20:31.

drones that we have seen is the single propeller,

:20:32.:20:34.

which encased in foam. That makes it safe to interact

:20:35.:20:37.

with it for humans. But luckily, this prototype has

:20:38.:20:40.

easily replaceable Nothing a bit of tape

:20:41.:20:56.

and glue won't fix. It did have the benefit

:20:57.:21:00.

of demonstrating the safe design I wasn't afraid it was going

:21:01.:21:03.

to hurt me. The finished robot will have

:21:04.:21:08.

more robust plastic. And its many sensors,

:21:09.:21:12.

including sonar, and gyroscope, will allow it to fly autonomously

:21:13.:21:15.

through an app on iOS and Android. Just push a button and pick

:21:16.:21:21.

what you want it to do. The E-Hang 184 is a

:21:22.:21:24.

whopper of a concept. The idea in this mockup is it

:21:25.:21:43.

will carry a person from A to B while being piloted

:21:44.:21:49.

autonomously by an app. All the real drone demos

:21:50.:21:54.

this year were inside. That is because of new rules from

:21:55.:22:00.

the Federal Aviation Administration In a nutshell, you now have

:22:01.:22:02.

to register your drone before flying You tell the FAA who you are,

:22:03.:22:10.

they give you a registration number, and you have to display

:22:11.:22:17.

it on your craft. Then, if you crash it or cause

:22:18.:22:21.

mischief, witnesses can report your drone

:22:22.:22:23.

and you will be fined. Yeah, so, one of the main concerns

:22:24.:22:29.

with drones is they might crash. So, next is Mark, with

:22:30.:22:32.

some drones, crashing. So, you have learnt to fly

:22:33.:22:40.

with your drone, you have taken What else can you with your

:22:41.:22:43.

quadcopter? In the case of the Combat Drone,

:22:44.:22:46.

it can engage in aerial combat. It is fitted with sensors

:22:47.:22:49.

on the front and rear. You try to take out your

:22:50.:22:51.

opponent by shooting them. It is kind of like laser tag

:22:52.:22:54.

with drones, I suppose. So, when the LEDs flash like that,

:22:55.:22:58.

I've let off a shot. A volly of infrared,

:22:59.:23:03.

flying low-level, under I am really glad I have tried this

:23:04.:23:05.

out inside a massive net. When you score a hit,

:23:06.:23:16.

the LEDs flash. Then the engines go out

:23:17.:23:18.

on your opponent if you hit them. My robot has been

:23:19.:23:21.
