0:00:000:00:01

That's it from me.

0:00:020:00:06

More at two o'clock.

0:00:060:00:09

Now it's time for Click.

0:00:090:00:18

I've had enough. Enough of old tech.

Going obsolete, or so it seems. Even

0:00:470:01:00

the days of desktop computers are

numbered. Right. Let's see what

0:01:000:01:06

they've got us this year. The

Consumer Electronics Show in Las

0:01:060:01:13

Vegas is the place to find out. It's

where the new products and concepts

0:01:130:01:19

launch for 2018 and some of them

might just change the world. One of

0:01:190:01:23

the highlights for me is always

finding out how Ben DLG is.

0:01:230:01:30

Previously, they have been slightly

bandy and this year, I think they

0:01:300:01:34

have nailed it. It's a 65 inch

rollup display and the image quality

0:01:340:01:42

is really very good. And it does

role completely up in two admittedly

0:01:420:01:48

fairly chunky box. It's an blue LED

display, the only display tech that

0:01:480:01:55

can be fully flexible. The circuitry

is built on a segmented back which

0:01:550:02:00

is a bit like a retractable garage

door. You can choose how far the

0:02:000:02:04

screen rolls out as well as a

widescreen TV which can be used as a

0:02:040:02:09

thin notification bar. A wider

format 21 ex nine cinema screen and

0:02:090:02:14

of course nothing at all. The

argument is that you can make use of

0:02:140:02:18

the space behind it when you're not

using it. And in South Korea, a lot

0:02:180:02:23

of people live in high-rise blocks.

Can you imagine lugging a TV like

0:02:230:02:27

that up the stairs? Much easier if

you can roll it down in a tube.

0:02:270:02:34

Elsewhere, plenty of other things to

see and play with here. Here is a

0:02:340:02:45

telephone from Vivo that does not

have a fingerprint scanner on the

0:02:450:02:49

back is because it has one built

into the screen. The display shines

0:02:490:02:53

light on to your bum and an optical

scanner registers what it sees. Here

0:02:530:03:01

is the link below to let has dashed

the link below 360. You can see it

0:03:010:03:11

through first person view so others

can feel like they were truly there

0:03:110:03:15

as well. Though it's important to

catch the eye at shows like these

0:03:150:03:27

which is what this thing is doing.

This is the hyper vision display and

0:03:270:03:32

is capable of projecting life-size

images high above the show floor.

0:03:320:03:37

All right, sexy, that's enough from

you. There is the science bit. We

0:03:370:03:43

have 24 rapidly spinning LED strips.

It gives you the illusion of a

0:03:430:03:49

persistent image. In the flesh, I

have to say, does really rather

0:03:490:03:54

good. Oh, good grief. Another flimsy

flimflam from me. Let's get Lara

0:03:540:04:03

with some of the big announcement

from the show. And what a week it

0:04:030:04:07

has been with news from Tak's

biggest players. Including the likes

0:04:070:04:12

of Intel saying it will release

software fixes to repair security

0:04:120:04:18

issues surrounding its chips. We've

had press events that have gone

0:04:180:04:22

wrong with disobedient robots from

LG. Col is not going to talk to me,

0:04:220:04:27

she doesn't like me evidently. And

Sony's robot dog wasn't that

0:04:270:04:32

response of either.

He is an

autonomous robot and will quickly

0:04:320:04:37

become a member of your family.

Right?

He ignored me. Meanwhile, a

0:04:370:04:43

lack of female keynote speakers has

caused controversy amongst

0:04:430:04:46

attendees. A situation which is less

-- which is meant to raise eyebrows

0:04:460:04:53

compounded by the included in

robotic pole dancers at a strip club

0:04:530:04:58

near the event. And on the floor, as

usual, TVs were everywhere but this

0:04:580:05:03

one really stood out. The same sum

wall is 140 inches wide and can be

0:05:030:05:10

made larger by adding modules. And

finally, Toyota has unveiled its new

0:05:100:05:15

board economist Palette vehicle, to

be used ridesharing, deliveries or

0:05:150:05:22

even a moving storefront which comes

directly to you. That was Lara. Now

0:05:220:05:33

what are the big things at the

moment is wireless charging. That

0:05:330:05:38

normally means putting your phone on

a pad that is also is possible to

0:05:380:05:42

send power through the air. One of

the problems with wireless power is

0:05:420:05:46

the power is sent in every direction

at the same time so wherever your

0:05:460:05:50

device is, it only receives a tiny

fraction of that power. Well, here

0:05:500:05:56

is a system that gets around that by

sending focused beams of power to

0:05:560:06:01

one particular point. The power

transmitter can be built into

0:06:010:06:06

ceiling tiles, walls, tables or

parts of the furniture. All it needs

0:06:060:06:11

to know is which direction to point

the power ridden. Here is the

0:06:110:06:16

science bit. To work that out, the

device needing the power sends out

0:06:160:06:20

low-power signals in all directions,

most of which are blocked by nearby

0:06:200:06:27

objects. But the signals that do

bounce around come from to give

0:06:270:06:32

tangles. By sending the power back

at exactly the same angles, that

0:06:320:06:38

power bounces about and eventually

gets back to the device. The makers

0:06:380:06:42

to bash the makers told us they can

achieve two watts of power from a

0:06:420:06:47

distance of one metre which is about

half the power of the smartphone

0:06:470:06:51

Charger. I'm using this light to

detect the power beams from the

0:06:510:06:57

transmitter and the blackbox

transceiver. Think about carrying

0:06:570:07:06

out remotely. He never had to charge

the battery again. But with high

0:07:060:07:12

power beams bouncing around your

home, you have to wonder if it is

0:07:120:07:18

safe. We look to get FCC approval

for safety. If you have accepted

0:07:180:07:27

Wi-Fi into your home, excepting this

technology would be the same. In the

0:07:270:07:34

future, the power receivers could be

made into any shape including that

0:07:340:07:38

of a double a battery and that means

ordinary devices could be converted

0:07:380:07:44

to wireless power without any

modification at all. For a long

0:07:440:07:50

time, bricks and mortar shops have

been trying to keep up with on line

0:07:500:07:54

retailers that the added benefits of

keeping track with customer habits

0:07:540:07:57

as well is providing very easy ways

of paying. Here is one way that we

0:07:570:08:03

could see some of those features

brought into the real world by

0:08:030:08:08

retrofitting existing stores. I Poly

uses off-the-shelf cameras, one

0:08:080:08:15

appeared to track customers and one

to take a look at the products and

0:08:150:08:19

the customers interactions but the

real work is happening here in the

0:08:190:08:24

AI algorithms were it is advising

all the products off-the-shelf and

0:08:240:08:28

their customers interactions with

them. At the AI is using the main

0:08:280:08:33

cannon camera. It can recognise

faces, identify close and follow

0:08:330:08:38

their movements. Through the

combination of the customers being

0:08:380:08:43

recognised, when they get to the

checkout, they don't even need to

0:08:430:08:48

scan the items. They just need to

pay. And if they agree to be

0:08:480:08:52

remembered, and all they need to do

is go and pick up their products and

0:08:520:08:57

take them away. One thing which

isn't making such a big noise this

0:08:570:09:17

week is virtual reality. Is the our

in its last chance? Billions have

0:09:170:09:29

been poured into BR but the headsets

are not selling the way companies

0:09:290:09:33

had hoped. There are multiple

problems. The set-up is too

0:09:330:09:36

difficult. The content is not

compelling enough. And a must is

0:09:360:09:46

treated very carefully, the VR

experience can and has made me feel

0:09:460:09:51

sick. The manufacturers are not

going to give up on this. The oculus

0:09:510:10:01

go will be launched around March.

That's like Samsung's VR but you

0:10:010:10:07

don't need a phone for it to work,

it is all built-in and around $200.

0:10:070:10:13

HTC announced they are to release

the five pro later this year, at

0:10:130:10:19

three K headset which will improve

resolution significantly and keep

0:10:190:10:25

the Vive ahead of the curb. While

oculus allows three degrees of

0:10:250:10:31

movement which is that way, that way

and that way, HTC has just launched

0:10:310:10:40

its Vive focus in China which allows

six degrees which is that, bad and

0:10:400:10:45

that. And also three dimensions of

movement in space. And that is using

0:10:450:10:53

inside out tracking which means

there are no sensors or lighthouses

0:10:530:10:56

telling you whether headset is. The

headset itself works out where it is

0:10:560:11:01

in the environment. This is the next

level four BR. Still, with Magic

0:11:010:11:11

leap releasing its augmented reality

with tons of activity like this, a

0:11:110:11:16

cheap flat wake --a cheap flat pack

way of building your own headset, BR

0:11:160:11:22

continues to face a tough battle

with a R which just seems a bit more

0:11:220:11:28

ready to make its mark, if you ask

me. I feel better than that. Anyway,

0:11:280:11:34

time to move on. Here comes Lara

with some hi-tech ways to stop

0:11:340:11:38

thieves. At this you's show, few

antitheft devices have been

0:11:380:11:48

launched. And this is a prototype

burglar prevention system. It aims

0:11:480:11:58

to replicate what a burglar sounds

like in your home sea can preset it

0:11:580:12:05

with the way you live your life,

whether you are watching a film,

0:12:050:12:09

talking in the kitchen and when the

lights are going to be going on and

0:12:090:12:13

off. Or you could simply...

Have you

got a permit to those guns?

0:12:130:12:25

Eventually, the plan would be that a

group of synchronised devices could

0:12:250:12:28

work through the house to make it

look like natural movement from room

0:12:280:12:32

to room. Of course, that would add

to the cost. And this is a smart

0:12:320:12:40

safe. Now I had to admit, when I

received it, I did think, this is

0:12:400:12:45

very light, very flimsy and how

could it possibly be a safe because

0:12:450:12:49

you could just steal this. But it

seems that technology here could be

0:12:490:12:55

used in bigger, stronger states and

this particular model is possibly

0:12:550:12:59

better for putting medicine in or

something you want to keep away from

0:12:590:13:03

the kids or other people visiting

your house. So how it works. It

0:13:030:13:09

connects via smartphone at which

means you can Oatley open the safe

0:13:090:13:14

should you wish to do that. And you

will also relieve -- receive alerts

0:13:140:13:18

if anybody tries to tamper with it.

Let's set it up somewhere where it

0:13:180:13:22

can remain in the steady place. This

particular model has wings which

0:13:220:13:28

extend into place. Let me put

something in here. Let me timetable

0:13:280:13:34

with it and see what happens.

0:13:340:13:38

It is quite firmly attached. With a

little bit more foresight could

0:13:400:13:47

probably pull it out. Yep, there we

go. Oh, it looks like it could be

0:13:470:13:56

quite easy to open as well. Any

ideas? Oh, dear. Let me try and find

0:13:560:14:08

something that might be a bit better

for security. It's not just about

0:14:080:14:16

the home, though, this bag and is to

keep your belongings safe when you

0:14:160:14:20

are and about. Do if you are on a

train or plane and you have to leave

0:14:200:14:25

your Bag some where else you might

want to activate this tamper alert

0:14:250:14:29

which uses this ID card to turn it

on and off. So if anybody tries to

0:14:290:14:33

open your bag... It sounds like

that! But if the issue is actually

0:14:330:14:43

you forgetting, then this prevention

device aims to conquer the rescue.

0:14:430:14:46

You can attach it any given item and

the company software will learn your

0:14:460:14:51

habits. So what time and where you

take that item and if you do

0:14:510:14:55

something that seems out of the

ordinary they can send your mind up

0:14:550:14:59

before you've even had a chance to

forget it. Eventually they are even

0:14:590:15:03

hoping to be able to do things like

access travel details through your

0:15:030:15:07

e-mail, so you can get a reminder to

pick up your passport without

0:15:070:15:10

running the risk of leaving without

it. The device does still seem a

0:15:100:15:14

little bit big right now but they

are trying to get a smaller version

0:15:140:15:17

ready ahead of the launch. Great if

it works, which was generally be

0:15:170:15:21

seen with most of what I tested. --

generally the theme. That was Lara.

0:15:210:15:31

This is a passenger drone made by a

German company and this one actually

0:15:310:15:37

has flown. I am constantly reminded

that the future of transport will be

0:15:370:15:43

amazingly here at CES, although

there is no guarantee that that is

0:15:430:15:47

true. Case in point. Remember the

electric car, the Faraday Future?

0:15:470:15:55

Well, that's show business. Now,

this is a start-up started by some

0:15:550:16:03

impressive people who came up with

basically a computer on wheels. Will

0:16:030:16:07

this car actually work? Dave Lee was

given exclusive access to it before

0:16:070:16:17

and during. I'll be honest, this

wasn't the most thrilling test drive

0:16:170:16:22

of my life. Worried about being

spotted before their big CES

0:16:220:16:29

unveiling, I was only a large test

drive the car slowly around their

0:16:290:16:33

unmarked warehouse. But it was very

interesting. The company has created

0:16:330:16:38

what is essentially a mobile

supercomputer. They say it has more

0:16:380:16:42

in common with your smartphone than

it does the typical car and I agree.

0:16:420:16:46

For the first time I've been

impressed by a car and not because

0:16:460:16:50

of its performance on the road but

because of its operating system.

The

0:16:500:16:54

vision behind it is we want to be

the company bringing into the market

0:16:540:16:59

the first real smart car.

The

vehicle has been designed and

0:16:590:17:02

created by a suitably qualified

team, made up of former BMW and

0:17:020:17:10

Apple enginners. Inside you will see

the dashboard has been completely

0:17:100:17:15

reimagined. The gesture control

system does look a bit imprecise and

0:17:150:17:18

quite fiddly not ideal when you are

driving on a motorway at 70 mph.

0:17:180:17:24

This looks like a really distracting

driving situation.

Isn't this

0:17:240:17:29

actually quite dangerous? So the key

is about customisation. When you

0:17:290:17:35

worry and drive mode, we will

actually disable certain features.

0:17:350:17:39

You won't be able to get into watch

videos, for instance. We want to

0:17:390:17:46

build a platform where when there is

someone driving all occupants in the

0:17:460:17:51

car, including the driver, have the

ability to interact.

Some of the

0:17:510:17:56

most exciting features will be

disabled until we live in a world of

0:17:560:18:00

fully autonomous driving. So perhaps

think of this vehicle as bridging

0:18:000:18:03

the gap between our dumb driving

past... And our smart driving

0:18:030:18:10

future. Of course you can't reveal a

car at CES without an expensive,

0:18:100:18:15

lavish launch event. This one went

by without a hitch and people seemed

0:18:150:18:21

impressed.

It's really interesting

idea but they are trying to target

0:18:210:18:24

it at as an affordable price point,

$40,000. -- target it out. And they

0:18:240:18:31

are adding all of this cool

technology, so I think it got a

0:18:310:18:35

pretty good message.

If you think

all this seems a little familiar you

0:18:350:18:39

are right. This was the scene at

last year's CES, when I covered a

0:18:390:18:43

new car company, Faraday Future.

Back then they said everything was

0:18:430:18:49

going swimmingly and their big

factory would be built soon. But in

0:18:490:18:53

less than a year the factory in

Nevada has been scrapped and while

0:18:530:18:56

the company insists it is still

pressing ahead, Faraday Future is in

0:18:560:19:00

serious danger of becoming a thing

of the past. So what will happen to

0:19:000:19:05

Biton? The biggest challenge facing

them right now is to do with

0:19:050:19:10

charging. Kessler has more than 8000

superchargers for their cars dotted

0:19:100:19:15

all over the world and Biton has

none. When it comes to making the

0:19:150:19:25

car, they are building bears in

Nanjing, China, and they promised

0:19:250:19:29

their car will be put into

production by the end of 2019 and

0:19:290:19:33

one-day cost $45,000. We will have

to see how that goes.

0:19:330:19:42

There will be plenty more transport

on next week's Nick macro. In the

0:19:420:19:46

meantime I am having my nails done.

This is the O2 Nails printer. Choose

0:19:460:19:53

any image and they will print it on

to your nail. Of course I chose a

0:19:530:19:58

picture of myself. OK, Richard

Taylor, beat that!

0:19:580:20:05

Refreshing! They are creating a

vacuum in my mouth and sucking at my

0:20:050:20:12

gums and at the same time

circulating water around my teeth.

0:20:120:20:16

It is intended for users with

reduced mobility or people who have

0:20:160:20:20

difficulty brushing their teeth. It

replaces the need to brush and

0:20:200:20:23

floss. The guys are working on

integrating centres in the future

0:20:230:20:28

devices so that oral hygienist or

dentists will be able to diagnose

0:20:280:20:32

and treat forgone disease. It's

quite tickly as well.

0:20:320:20:38

This is being marketed as the

world's first smart baby feeding

0:20:380:20:42

monitor. You put your baby bottle,

any baby bottle, into the device, it

0:20:420:20:47

has a temperature sensor to make

sure the milk is the right

0:20:470:20:50

temperature, it has a motion sensor

which flushes read if you are

0:20:500:20:54

holding the bottle at a particular

angle -- flashes red. And it is

0:20:540:20:59

Wi-Fi enabled. If there is a nanny

feeding at home and the mummies at

0:20:590:21:03

work, the results of the feeding are

uploaded to the smartphone at work

0:21:030:21:07

so mum can tell exactly how much the

baby has drunk.

0:21:070:21:13

What you are seeing here is a

magical chessboard. It allows

0:21:190:21:23

players to play with each other

regardless of where they are in the

0:21:230:21:26

world. Right now someone is playing

by their phone and an electric

0:21:260:21:33

armies dragging the different pieces

to the rights. Pretty cool!

0:21:330:21:39

CES can really take it out of you

and I for one am already pretty

0:21:390:21:44

sleep deprived. What I have here is

a device that is packed with all

0:21:440:21:50

sorts of technology and the claim is

it will provide within 20 minutes
