from Click for their

Christmas special.

0:00:000:00:02

It was the night before Clickmas and

all through the smart home of the

0:00:080:00:14

gizmo was wearing, not even a drone,

the stock is full with gadgets

0:00:140:00:18

galore with virtually realities

primed to explore.

0:00:180:00:21

The very next day, you gave it away.

This year, to save you from tears. I

0:00:460:00:53

will give it to someone special.

And

welcome to the Clickmas special!

0:00:530:00:59

Thank you very much to John the

excellent rendition to start us off,

0:00:590:01:03

would you believe it, the gang is

all here, the are decked with nifty

0:01:030:01:08

gadgetry that it is time to get this

party started. That! This is the

0:01:080:01:15

Lyric Speaker, it streams music from

your smartphone from Spotify and

0:01:150:01:18

also picks up the lyrics from

Spotify and displays it on screen

0:01:180:01:25

you to have a sociable conversation.

And if you do want that, you can

0:01:250:01:29

talk about the fact this cost £3600.

Does it play Mariah Carey?

0:01:290:01:35

Technically it does but let's not

test that.

I tell you what, I have a

0:01:350:01:41

Christmas present for you, Spencer.

You've always wanted to be a Jedi

0:01:410:01:45

Knight, I know this, you have always

wanted to have a light sabre button

0:01:450:01:49

but with this augmented reality Star

battling headsets, you can.

0:01:490:01:53

Fabulous. Can I try it? Yes, but you

have to go over there because I know

0:01:530:01:59

you and your waiting arms, you will

something over. -- waving.

While I

0:01:590:02:11

get lost in a galaxy far, far away,

Dan is getting lost in his favourite

0:02:110:02:17

videogame.

0:02:170:02:18

Come on, come on, come on. I have

just crushed it! It is a stunning

0:02:220:02:33

game, I would love to tell you it is

just like driving the real thing

0:02:330:02:38

but... I cannot just yet. This is

the Nissan GT-R, it is 4-wheel-drive

0:02:380:02:55

traction control system, it lays

down almost all the 550 horses from

0:02:550:03:00

the engine to the tarmac. It is a

top speed that would make your nose

0:03:000:03:04

bleed, and goes 0- 60 in under three

seconds. I am ready to go again!

0:03:040:03:16

Sorry?

0:03:160:03:19

(BLEEP)! Are (BLEEP)!

0:03:300:03:33

Oh my god! You want to be a little

bit... So we've played the game,

0:03:380:03:49

we've driven the car, so how

about... We do both. This is a

0:03:490:04:03

full-sized fully expect

rent-controlled Nissan GT-R C, it

0:04:030:04:08

has been made by the team at JLP

design and is driven by a standard

0:04:080:04:13

PlayStation controller. Four Baz

control the transmission, staring,

0:04:130:04:19

throttle and the brakes. The six

number crunchers in the Brutt couple

0:04:190:04:26

of my adjustment is 100 times per

second. So just to be clear, I'm

0:04:260:04:31

going to be driving that car with

this while Rob chases it in the car

0:04:310:04:37

we are in. We don't lose contact,

obviously. I know. Bonkers. This is

0:04:370:04:47

£100,000 worth of sports car and I

have to say it is twitchy. Just like

0:04:470:04:54

a Grand Prix, a bit of break, there

we go, Indigo, there we turn. Just

0:04:540:04:58

take a little bit of. He has gone

around the corner, he hasn't

0:04:580:05:03

smashed! Sports car! This car has so

much power and are literally have to

0:05:030:05:09

just dab a finger and it moves, I

mean, it really does. Incredible.

0:05:090:05:20

Wow! Just be able to control

something as powerful as that is so

0:05:200:05:25

much responsibility, actually, but

once you get into which you get

0:05:250:05:28

focused on the car, it is just

incredible. We should all have one

0:05:280:05:32

of these Christmas, shouldn't we? Oh

well. Nice to dream.

0:05:320:05:39

Dan, it's looked amazing. Pointless.

But amazing.

And terrifying.

0:05:430:05:52

Absolutely terrifying, Spencer. I

think we created a new OG.

I say!

0:05:520:05:57

Well, good. In an attempt, moving

on, in an attempt to add some

0:05:570:06:04

substance to this Christmas debacle,

we have decided to cross to a

0:06:040:06:08

familiar friend who is a powerful

telepresence, Dave Lee in San

0:06:080:06:13

Francisco.

Robots things. -- sings.

Dave, nice wheels! A serious upgrade

0:06:130:06:30

of the old telepresence box, I

suppose you are now a serious news

0:06:300:06:34

corresponded.

Thank you, finally the

rubber to grade I have feel like I

0:06:340:06:39

deserve.

Tell us about your 2017,

you are in the heart of it all in

0:06:390:06:44

silicon valley San Francisco, what

is this year be like for you?

I feel

0:06:440:06:48

like this year, the things that made

the big companies really good and

0:06:480:06:52

profitable and rich is now the same

thing that is giving them serious

0:06:520:06:57

headaches. We have seen algorithms

fightback, causing all sorts of

0:06:570:07:01

problems. Fake news, propaganda from

the Russians, various issues that

0:07:010:07:08

faced -- Facebook and Google and

YouTube and all of these companies

0:07:080:07:12

are suffering from and this year has

been am trying to deal with but I

0:07:120:07:16

did they have managed it all,

frankly.

Over here in what I call

0:07:160:07:20

the rest of the world everyone is

looking at Silicon valley and it

0:07:200:07:24

almost looks a bit large companies

could topple because of these kind

0:07:240:07:28

of scandals. What is the feeling

like in Silicon Valley? Are people

0:07:280:07:33

worried or are they getting on with

the next new crazy service?

I think

0:07:330:07:38

they are more grumpy about this than

worried Comey I think Silicon valley

0:07:380:07:42

field but when Washington has a go

at them about fake news or when the

0:07:420:07:46

rest of the world thinks they are

not doing a good enough job they

0:07:460:07:50

think they are being picked on, is

the sense I get from many companies,

0:07:500:07:54

they feel like it is the thing that

isn't their fault they will be able

0:07:540:07:58

to fix it but it may take some time

or indeed we may just have to learn

0:07:580:08:02

that these networks are going to be

perfect all the time. That is the

0:08:020:08:06

sense I get. I think they hope that

as we going to Christmas and the new

0:08:060:08:11

year we might move on from this

issue and stop talking about it

0:08:110:08:14

quite so much. But I don't think

people will forget, I think people

0:08:140:08:18

will be talking about is well into

2018.

Or, horror, hope, Mary

0:08:180:08:21

Clickmas!

This is my friend, I felt

she would bring some fun to the

0:08:210:08:28

table, it recognises me. A low! It

is a robot who can say phrases and

0:08:280:08:33

play educational games and it can

even do that. But look at what it

0:08:330:08:37

does on the table. Don't worry, it

will not eat your chocolate coins.

0:08:370:08:40

But its mind or bitcoin?

It mines

for chocolate coins.

Team, the food

0:08:400:08:48

is nearly ready, 15 minutes. What is

this?

I know you said not to bring

0:08:480:08:54

you anything and this is no

criticism to your cooking but this

0:08:540:08:58

is some 3-D printed Christmas dinner

while we are waiting. But looks

0:08:580:09:02

delicious. Beef, brussels sprout,

cranberry.

Seriously, they are

0:09:020:09:08

different flavours? Yes, that is

beefy, oh, God, why do sprout exist,

0:09:080:09:14

and...

I am nervous like it is my

own cooking and I am worried about

0:09:140:09:20

what it tastes like. Should I?

I

think you should try that. That is

0:09:200:09:24

just the consistency of beef. So,

what you think? That is the sprouts,

0:09:240:09:31

actually. They do look pretty

similar. That is definitely the

0:09:310:09:37

cranberry. So this... Must be... The

beef. Yeah.

How is it?

I mean, it is

0:09:370:09:49

genius because it does taste kind of

like what you described, the

0:09:490:09:53

consistency not really and it is

stone cold.

OK, well it was freshly

0:09:530:09:58

prepared for us by dovetail who

prepared home 3-D food printers so

0:09:580:10:02

you could even create something like

brussels sprouts a taste of

0:10:020:10:05

chocolate. Or you could do with the

others wait based on nutrition.

Not

0:10:050:10:09

struck up a taste like brussels

sprouts, that would be ludicrous.

I

0:10:090:10:15

think it may have consumed a few

calories here, probably literally a

0:10:150:10:18

phew, just in case you want to burn

off those three calories, here is my

0:10:180:10:23

present for you. Happy Clickmas, it

is a smart skipping rope.

Oh, a

0:10:230:10:28

smart skipping rope.

It will shall

skip that every time you jump this

0:10:280:10:33

light flashes. Oh, my goodness!

So

people can see all around how hard

0:10:330:10:39

you are working.

Thank you so much.

Maybe you could go and have a skip

0:10:390:10:44

and in the meantime you could take a

look at how your Christmas groceries

0:10:440:10:48

would be heading to you very soon.

This this is a cargo's Hatfield

0:10:480:10:58

fulfilment centre, a place where

humans work alongside a process that

0:10:580:11:01

already looks ready automated. But

the robots are coming. Wow! This

0:11:010:11:19

grocery picking robot is being

tested here and early next year she

0:11:190:11:24

will be making an appearance at one

of the warehouses to do the job for

0:11:240:11:28

real. It has been trained to

identify 2000 of the company boss

0:11:280:11:34

and 50,000 products using computer

vision and as long as those products

0:11:340:11:37

are nonporous, basically anything

that would be damaged by being

0:11:370:11:41

picked up by this vacuum, and it can

take them out of the picking box,

0:11:410:11:45

take them through the scanner, and

place them in the baking area. But

0:11:450:11:50

this isn't the only robot being

tested here. I am off to meet a man

0:11:500:11:56

called panels and an arm called

slammer.

0:11:560:11:59

Hello. I don't know who's hand shake

first. I will go for yours. OK, so

0:12:030:12:09

while this robot looks like its

purpose is just have the human

0:12:090:12:12

touch, it can pick things up without

damaging them, it does also have

0:12:120:12:18

another skill. What is this what

have been taught to do is the same

0:12:180:12:22

thing a human would. So to put your

hand on it, and do that. Can you

0:12:220:12:27

help it demonstrates, please?

Of

course.

The movement is quite

0:12:270:12:33

something, it has a few elbows

there. But it has grabbed it and it

0:12:330:12:43

has picked it up successfully.

It

can put it down.

Thanks, happy

0:12:430:12:51

Christmas to you, too.

0:12:510:13:01

get a sneak peek behind the scenes

to find out a bit more about how you

0:13:010:13:04

try to make a hand seem more human.

Zach who has been working on this

0:13:040:13:09

project for a while, what are the

challenges you face?

One of the main

0:13:090:13:13

challenges is to actually get this

handle glove to sense the forces

0:13:130:13:17

that a human concerns. We as humans

have a very delicate sense of touch

0:13:170:13:21

so we can handle objects like

apples. So we have tried to

0:13:210:13:26

reproduce that by having a sort of

electronic skin.

So this Apple,

0:13:260:13:30

apart from being a bit squashed, has

obviously been approved as being

0:13:300:13:33

good. I don't think I need to do any

shopping this week, I am

0:13:330:13:37

disappearing with all your products.

Well, seeing as the robot couldn't

0:13:370:13:40

join us for Clickmas lunch, I

thought it was only ferret out a

0:13:400:13:47

cracker. Let's see what it makes of

it. In what country will you not

0:13:470:13:52

find a vegetarian? You don't know?

Turkey. Cue laughter. Does it not do

0:13:520:14:00

laughter?

0:14:000:14:03

Well, I have to say, you get a

greater view of London's West End

0:14:120:14:16

from up here. We are on the roof of

John Lewis at the moment. These

0:14:160:14:20

aren't any old binoculars. These are

made by IQ, and they are basically a

0:14:200:14:26

combination of a lens strapped to a

smartphone strapped to a viewer.

0:14:260:14:30

They allow you to record what you

are seeing so you can watch it back

0:14:300:14:34

later and share it with friends.

Nice. I'm freezing. I say, Bahman.

0:14:340:14:42

Well, hello, Spencer!

If it is

intelligent's Nick Kwek.

How are

0:14:420:14:47

you?

Cold. Can you give me something

hot?

Here you go, a lovely hot

0:14:470:14:53

chocolate. I say hot, because

actually that is a smart mug you are

0:14:530:14:57

holding. It connects to your mobile

phone with an app, and that works

0:14:570:15:01

like a thermostat. You choose the

delight -- desired to bridge of your

0:15:010:15:05

drink and that keeps it warm all day

long.

All day long!

At least until

0:15:050:15:10

your smartphone's battery dies, at

which point the power in the month

0:15:100:15:14

goes.

I will drink it, then.

That

will be £80.

£80! What's that,

0:15:140:15:21

production? I needed back in the

hub.

Spencer!

0:15:210:15:27

I hope you are enjoying the show.

0:15:300:15:33

Good to be back inside. Kate, what

are you doing with your hand?

I am

0:15:350:15:41

making sweet, sweet music. Can you

not hear it? It is wonderful. This

0:15:410:15:45

is the remedy digital music glove,

and the way that it works, it

0:15:450:15:50

connects to an apple in your phone

and these four stencils here turned

0:15:500:15:54

on and off loops. -- sensors. And

these four sensors initiates apples.

0:15:540:16:00

So you can choose lots of different

musical styles that you want. Drum

0:16:000:16:04

and bass, hip-hop, EDM. Electranet

dance music.

Yes, I know.

You can

0:16:040:16:11

even put a bit of flange on. This is

what somebody who with absolutely no

0:16:110:16:18

musical ability whatsoever, I am

sure you can tell, can create.

Kate

0:16:180:16:23

Russell, everybody. Fabulous. Now it

is time for my Christmas present to

0:16:230:16:30

you all. And indeed you at home as

well. Now, you might remember, last

0:16:300:16:34

week I got to talk Art with

performance art superstar Marina

0:16:340:16:41

Abramovic, and during that chat, we

talked about how we immersed

0:16:410:16:46

ourselves and technology every week

and sometimes it was difficult to

0:16:460:16:50

tear away from the table of what

used to be called a normal life.

0:16:500:16:53

Well, this was Marina's answer to

me. I think this is her Christmas

0:16:530:16:57

message to us all.

You have to do

come to my world, which I create

0:16:570:17:07

some ring called the Abramovic

method. You can do it in your own

0:17:070:17:11

home. You decide, one day a week,

that you take your phone and your

0:17:110:17:16

computer and switch them off and you

don't put them, you don't put any

0:17:160:17:20

electronics around. You do nothing.

Doing nothing is being yourself.

0:17:200:17:24

Because all that you do is look

inwards. When you are surrounded by

0:17:240:17:35

entertainment you're not being with

yourself alone, in silence.

So if I

0:17:350:17:38

was to do that, I can tell you, I

would sit there and then I would...

0:17:380:17:42

Just wonder what is going on. And

then I might get bored.

Being bought

0:17:420:17:46

is important.

It is?

Yes, because

the board is a sign that something

0:17:460:17:53

is wrong with you. You have to get

bored. You have to go beyond the

0:17:530:17:57

board. Sit for six hours and do

nothing and see what happens to your

0:17:570:18:02

boredom. The board goes away. You

start seeing that actually, you are

0:18:020:18:06

nervous, you are hysterical, your

breathing is raised. Go another four

0:18:060:18:14

hours. You start breeding more

slowly. You start relaxing. You

0:18:140:18:20

start getting to the centre of

yourself. It takes time. It takes

0:18:200:18:23

effort. To relax, that is huge work.

I really use technology to help make

0:18:230:18:29

life more efficient. Which means

that messages come in here and I can

0:18:290:18:35

deal with these messages while I am

walking somewhere else. So I am

0:18:350:18:38

conscious that I've lost that piece,

I've lost the peace and quiet of

0:18:380:18:42

having a walk.

The thing is, every

email you write, you have done all

0:18:420:18:47

the work, you write all the emails

that you have in your computer in

0:18:470:18:51

the morning. You can double back,

every email is not important. And

0:18:510:19:01

then what are you doing next week?

That is the problem, if one person,

0:19:010:19:05

like me, tries to do it differently,

the rest of the world still operates

0:19:050:19:09

at a much higher pace and are still

get those messages back, can you do

0:19:090:19:13

this, can you pop this in here.

Can

you imagine if you have three days

0:19:130:19:17

to live? You would ask all these

emails? No. Why don't you take every

0:19:170:19:23

day like the last day of your life?

I wouldn't get paid, though.

This,

0:19:230:19:29

again, how much we need of this to

live, how much supercity can we

0:19:290:19:33

have? It is so important to question

everything, how we can create our

0:19:330:19:39

life in a minimal way and how many

things we need to adopt. It is

0:19:390:19:43

incredible. That questioning, only

when you really put your life, it is

0:19:430:19:49

so important to question everything.

Question how we can create our life

0:19:490:19:54

in a minimal way. You know, my

generation is Telegraph 's and

0:19:540:20:00

Xerox. -- telegrams. The young

generation, the kids who were born

0:20:000:20:08

with the computers in the

videogames, these are the people who

0:20:080:20:12

can actually do something about it.

This is the target. That is the

0:20:120:20:17

future.

That was Marina Abramovic

telling us to throw away our

0:20:170:20:26

technology, which is a bit of a

downer, especially for Ross, because

0:20:260:20:30

that's all we know.

Well, Spencer, I

think I've got something that might

0:20:300:20:34

cheer you up. Technology isn't

always that bad. We've been going on

0:20:340:20:37

about a hour all the, and Kate, if I

could get a hand from you. -- going

0:20:370:20:42

on about AR.

What witchcraft is

this?

This is the AR air measure

0:20:420:20:48

app, creating a painting in AR. You

can paintings, measured things, all

0:20:480:20:53

with an AR.

And you stick that

anywhere in space, and it's not

0:20:530:20:58

really there. It's not really there,

everybody! If you are wondering,

0:20:580:21:02

this a photo of the Quick team after

we finished our live show in thought

0:21:020:21:06

of a live studio audience. -- flange

team. You can see that on TV in a

0:21:060:21:11

couple of weeks. Here is a sneak

peek of the end of that show. This

0:21:110:21:16

is the spectacular Star Wars ballet

from Propel. In true Click style it

0:21:160:21:22

ended in a fight to the death. The

lone survivor from the audience took

0:21:220:21:26

home one of the Star Wars drones.

And that reminds me. It is time for

0:21:260:21:30

our Clickmas elfing. Sticking with

the team of AR, will be adding a bit

0:21:300:21:38

of augmented reality to the photo

year. We have the Into photo printer

0:21:380:21:42

attached to a smartphone. I will

need some help here, down. Could you

0:21:420:21:45

take the selfie, please? You are in

a better position than me. When need

0:21:450:21:49

to put it on video mode.

This is a

video selfie?

It is. You will find

0:21:490:21:54

out why in a moment. All I have to

say right now is that when Dan

0:21:540:21:58

presses the button, make sure you

move and make some noise. Happy

0:21:580:22:01

Clickmas, or something is

appropriate.

Happy Clickmas! More

0:22:010:22:09

moving, more moving...

Move in a

really unnatural way of all stock

0:22:090:22:12

the more you move the better it will

look. So, now we've got a steel that

0:22:120:22:18

looks like that, which we can print.

That's unfortunate.

It is not a bad

0:22:180:22:23

picture. Let's print that out.

Hurrah!

There you go, Spencer.

Your

0:22:230:22:31

memento.

I like the way you framed

it.

I am sure that is what it was

0:22:310:22:37

designed for.

I am going to have to

take a selfie of that.

That's it for

0:22:370:22:46

this week. Thank you so much for

watching. On behalf of the whole

0:22:460:22:50

team, Mary Clickmas! -- Merry

Clickmas.

The rooftop sees Santo,

0:22:500:22:59

who is laughing with glee. He is

trying to fit robots down the

0:22:590:23:03

chimney. He finished the job and the

gifts were delivered, around

0:23:030:23:07

Rudolf's next, the GPS triggered.

And on Santa's step counter the

0:23:070:23:11

total was high. Three Mac Clickmas

to all. Now where's my mince pie?

0:23:110:23:16

Guys, I think I've fallen over. And

it told me there was a step. --

0:23:160:23:21

nobody told me.
