Technology: it’s in our homes
and in our cars, but why can’t it be in us? Well, now it can.
Ronny Chieng has more in his segment
Today’s Future Now. ♪ ♪ Thanks, Trevor. For years, we’ve mostly
just operated our technology with our hands and our fingers, like a bunch of cavemen or people from Michigan. We love to finger
our technology. We finger it all day long. But now “science” has found a way to get
our whole bodies involved. Exoskeleton vests
are changing the game for the American
manufacturing workforce. Ford Motor Company
recently unveiled its plan to provide workers
with wearable technology. REPORTER: It’s an exoskeleton
that helps maintain good posture, adding up
to 15 pounds of support to each arm
when it’s raised up. Nicholas Gotts spends much
of the day on the Ford Mustang
assembly line reaching up. Really? They call you Rocket Man
and Mr. Incredible? Or are you trying
to give yourself a nickname and make it stick by saying it
on national television? Because it doesn’t work
like that, man. Okay? If you want to give yourself
a nickname, you got to be more subtle. Take some advice
from the Chinese stallion. You got to slip it in, when people
aren’t paying attention. W-Wait, wait, wait.
You’re the Chinese stallion? Yeah, I mean, tha-that’s what
I keep hearing people saying these days,
so I guess it’s official. But, more importantly, I don’t know if I trust
that robot vest, okay? I see what’s happening. First, the robot’s like, “Hey, let me help you
lift that.” Then the robot’s like,
“Hey, you know what? I-I can do that myself.
Why don’t you go take a break?” And, next thing you know,
the robot has your job and is banging your wife, okay? And there’s also downsides. Because not only is technology
taking over our lives, it’s about to make us look
a lot stupider. REPORTER: Swiss drone scientists
are working on a wearable drone controller. It’s basically a fancy jacket
with a lot of sensors on it. You put it on and then you add a little virtual reality
headset and then you raise your arms
like a bird, as free as you can be, and, uh, you’ve got to twist
your torso every which way to pilot the drone. Oh, wow. How convenient. So instead of using
a remote control for my drone that fits in my hand, now I just have to put on
20 pounds of equipment? I can’t lift 20 pounds, okay? Do I look like the Rock? Do I? (shouts of assent, cheering) No! No, I don’t. But thank you. (laughter) So, I shouldn’t need
a whole workout routine just to spy on my neighbors
sunbathing on their roof, okay? My problem with this
is that it’s too small-minded. We’re in the future.
We shouldn’t be flying drones. -We should be flying ourselves.
-MAN: Yes! REPORTER: It’s not a sight
you’d expect to see on the streets of London. But few are more blown away
by the jet suit than the man who invented it,
Richard Browning. It’s almost like that dream
most people seem to have around being able to just think
somewhere and fly there. REPORTER: It can reach speeds
of 32 miles an hour and an altitude of 12,000 feet. Anyone can fly it,
with training and insurance. It’s made up
of five mini jet engines, one on the back and two on each
arm, which control direction. Finally. Now, this is
an awesome way to travel, even though he looks like Tony
Stark got his suit from H&M. And… look
at all those engines. I can finally fulfill
my childhood dream of flying and killing
eight geese at once. But as cool as this suit is,
there is one drawback. REPORTER: For now,
the fuel pack limits the suit to only three
or four minutes of flight. (laughter) So this thing can fly up to 12,000 feet but only has gas
for three minutes. That sounds like a great way
to fall from 12,000 feet. But you know what? The good thing
about all this new technology is that we’ve all been worried
that robots are gonna take over and kill humanity. But it turns out
we’re becoming the robots and we’re gonna kill ourselves
first. So, suck it, robots. That’ll
teach you to bang our wives. The Chinese stallion, everybody!

science fiction there’s in case you didn’t know which like how could you not

one fanfiction titled Lazzaro the piece is a prequel which provides an origin
story for Nolan Sorento the book’s main antagonist Kline must have liked it
because he later declared it canonical in the ready player one universe number
18 in an elaborate display of literary intrigue several months after ready
player one was first released Klein revealed that the book itself contained
a meticulously hidden easter egg which would lead participants into a series of
increasingly difficult videogame tests the first person to complete all three
of those challenges would be rewarded with the grand prize of a DeLorean

do this was a fellow by the name of Craig Queen gas Queen who sets a new
world record on the classic cramming title joust on the 9th of August 2012
true to his word Kline handed over the keys to the DeLorean to Queen which was
featured on the TV show x-play at number 21 a film adaptation also titled ready
player one has a release date of the 29th of March 2018 it’s been directed by
the one and only Steven Spielberg so at the very least it’s got that going for
it number 22 the film rights to ready player 1 were purchased by Warner
Brothers on the very same day Kline finalized his book deal with Random
House a whole year before the book was published before someone’s keen number
23 Klein was then presented with the task of adapting his unfilmable novel
into a screenplay when you’re writing things I find that pens are helpful and
so decline because luckily he had a little help from a friend appears
screenwriter Zach pen there who previously worked on huge Hollywood
franchise it’s like the x-men series and the Avengers number 24 Kline and Penn
met each other while working together on Atari game over a 2014 documentary film
about the North American video game crash of 1983 and the subsequent
exploration of hundreds of thousands of video game cartridges that Atari buried
in a landfill including a tame number 25 a number of huge directors huge isn’t
successful not huge erson well you know why considered to captain the ready
player one film adaptation vessel including Matty Vaughn Christopher Nolan
Robert Zemeckis Edgar Wright and Peter Jackson number 26 however in March of
2015 Steven Spielberg signed on to direct the
film Spielberg later made the distinction the ready player one was not
in fact a film it’s specifically a movie okay number 27 when asked to would star
in the film adaptation ready player one clone revealed that he would actually
prefer a cast of unknown actors with the lone exception of the American actor and
writer Wil Wheaton who is in fact a character in the book
yet the studio’s though not having any of that number 28 in September of 2015
in the entertainment and media news website The Wrap reported that the likes
of Elle Fanning and Lola Kirk were being considered for the role of Artemis
before actually it was neither of them an Olivia cooks snack the role for
herself number 29 in the same month variety film reporter Justin crawl
tweeted that Spielberg was interested in American actor Nick Robinson for the
lead role as Wade watt and pars of all this turned out to be a vicious lie or
at the very least incorrect information as the role eventually went to ty
Sheridan number 30 a list Hollywood actor Michael Keaton was also considered
for JD Halladay but it ended up going to British actor Mark Rylance Keaton was
probably too busy being very frightening somewhere number 31
three of the actors are many player one Ralph Ineson Kai Alexander and Hannah
John Kaman have also appeared in the award-winning fantasy series Game of
Thrones innocent paid tag mere cleft jaw and exam two played leaf not that leaf
and Hannah John came and played Ornella number 32
Jane Douglas represent on the video game YouTube show outside Xbox is an extra in
this film she plays a sixer and in the first trailer she can be seen
just behind another sixer with a number six six five three one two on his helmet
there you see yeah she’s playing a bad guy in this but I very in real life and
actually she’s very nice number 33 production on ready player one began in
the spring of 2016 and was filmed in both the United States and the United
Kingdom much of the UK filming took place in Birmingham of all places
locations included floodgate Street and the chiller eek Walter number 34
the Brom a section of ready player one filming also included filming underneath
gravelly Hill interchange aka the original Spaghetti Junction knowing that
some flyovers in Birmingham a doubling for a city of a futuristic dystopian
America warms the cockles of my heart of it number 35 in June or 2016 it was
reported that Spielberg’s longtime collaborator John Williams would be
composing the film score however conflict with this other work on another
Spielberg film the post prevented him from doing so and
Spielberg ultimately brought Alan Silvestri composer of the Avengers no
less on board to score the film number 36
this makes ready player one only the third Spielberg film that doesn’t
include a score composed by John Williams the previous two non Williams
scored spill burgers of the 1985 period drama the color purple and the 2015
historical legal drama thriller bridge of spies number 37 ready player one
constitutes a second collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Simon Pegg
since the adventures of tintin and the third collaboration between Spielberg
and Mark Rylance after The BFG and bridge of spies number 38
as it happens ready player one is also Steven Spielberg’s first science fiction
film since all the way back in 2005 when he directed the 2005 film adaptation of
the War of the Worlds written by HG Wells and released all the way back in
1897 number 39 one of ready player one so called unsung heroes a special
project supervisor Deirdre backs backs had the daunting task of clearing the
licenses to all of the pop-culture references that appear in the film and
there is a lot good on you backs I’ve got your back facts number 40 luckily
ready player one is being produced by the same studio that made the Cameo pact
a lego movie which is filled to the brim with video game references I mean it’s
not like they can actually share those licenses and stuff but hey at least have
done it before number 41 Warner Brothers initially announced that
ready player one the movie definitely not the film would be released on the
15th of December 2017 however the release date was pushed all the way back
to the 30th of March 2018 to avoid competition with Star Wars the last Jedi
nap never heard of it Loreena one difference between the film and the
books concerns the location of the stacks the dystopian slummin which way’d
lives in the books the stacks are located in Oklahoma City but the film is
set in Columbus Ohio number 43 another big difference between
the book and the film contains the meeting of widened Samantha in the book
the two don’t encounter each other in real life until the very end of the
story but the trailer indicates they meet much earlier on
number 44 fans initially acted very very angrily to the fact that in some
screenshots and stills from the movie Artemus bears not to have her problem
birthmark on her face however as we can see here she very clearly does so happy
days for fans number 45 additionally the character a fails and/or who is the
leader of the enemy sixes was not present in the book and was written
especially for the movie number 46 and then there’s this guy AGGA he days
Oasis name show can be combined with de tous name to form the word day show
which is a Japanese term literally meaning big.little referring to a set of
long and short swords worn by samurais during feudal Japan number 47 lowland
Sorrento’s innovative online industries employee identification number is ioi
six five five three two one the number bit of that is the same as the prison
identification number of the character Alex from the author Anthony Burgess’s
novel A Clockwork Orange so you know some a great guy number 48 Klein has
stated that known as Sorrento’s first name is a tribute to American engineer
and entrepreneur Nolan Bushnell responsible for creating the video game
pong founding Atari and the chuck-e-cheese pizzatime theatres chain
number 49 part of ready player ones immense draw is the almost innumerable
references to pop culture icons the trailer is dripping in references one of
the most prominent of which is the appearance of the rx-78 tube gun dam
from the Japanese mecha anime Mobile Suit Gundam number 50 the toilet
contains shots of various characters from DC Comics – including one shot to
parley Quinn accompanied by someone from some sort of comic it seems the person
accompanying Harley coin at the distracted globe is variously been
identified by viewers as Deathstroke Deadshot and even Marvel’s Deadpool
however the combination of double swords and the armor costume suggests is
probably Deathstroke but what do you think let us know if you
think we’ve got it right in our fabulous YouTube hole number 51
Deadshot can be seen in the battle scene identifiable by his glowing red scope
Deadshot is considered to be one of the deadliest assassins in the DC Universe
often boasting that he never misses a shot number 52 there’s also another shot
of Harley Quinn this time with a classic pre ledger version of the Joker I’ve
been going out with desk trunk and the Joker the hussy to be there it could be
different people with different but that doesn’t work my joke about
Heidi crimping hussy so let’s ignore that I see number 53 at one point wave
can be seen dressed at the ticular here open The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai
across the 8th dimension that is a really obscure reference by the way
which means if you got it you’re better than everyone else it’s it’s actually
confirmed now number 54 that’s another point in the trailer we see hundreds of
PHS and DVD covers floating in the AR most of them are too small to see but if
you identifiable covers include Full Metal Jacket Batman and Scarface number
55 the dance floor in the bar of the distracted globe a zero gravity
nightclub in the Oasis is the same one from Saturday Night Fever although if
it’s at zero gravity nightclub then why does avid dance floor but I first saw it
I stupidly assumed it was a reference to Dance Dance Revolution because I’m a
pathetic loser who is unworthy of love number 56 and one point in the
distracted globe there’s a shot of several people floating the swirling
mass of levitating ballroom dancers because you know it’s virtual reality
while you’re perfectly entitled to dance at a huge churning people tornado if you
so wish one of the people spinning around at the bottom of the group is
Gandalf from Lord of the Rings number 57 Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider series
to whom we’ve recently dedicated an entire what am on facts video can be
seen a number of times in the trailer fighting in the battle scenes in
ordering a drink at the bar of the distracted globe raiding tombs is
thirsty work apparently number 58 Commander Shepard from Mass Effect can
be seen turning away from the bar in the same scene probably trying to chat up
Lara Croft who got rejected open there but all been there number 59 elsewhere
Mass Effect fan favorite famous Shep can be seen in attendance making sure a
female contingent is representing the brand to number 16 the bartender can
also be seen wearing so-called energy domes a distinctive article of had care
associated with the American new wave band Devo
the band first began wearing the circular ziggurat champ hats as part of
the myth surrounding their third album freedom of choice released in 1980
number 61 the massive car race in ready player one is a veritable smorgasbord of
particular pop culture references prior to and during the race we can see the
possessed 58 Plymouth Fury car from Stephen King’s Christine the Mack Phi
from Speed Racer the modified Ford Falcon from Mad Max the 1983 GMC vandura
van from the a-team the famous monster truck big four
the Interceptor from Mad Max the motorcycle that can eat arrived in akira
and of course Wade’s custom DeLorean which if you didn’t know it’s kicking
out with KITT the on-board computer from Knight Rider it’s also got a custom
license plate and a bunch of snazzy Ghostbuster lime goes on the gullwing
doors number 62 speaking of kennedy’s motorcycle from
akira Artemis has decorated it with stickers the bay homage to miss pac-man
Wonder Woman The Greatest American Hero and the Japanese video game developer
Taito number 63 similarly Wade is decorated the inside
of his secret van hideout with Garfield and Garbage Pail Kids stickers nerd
Nintendo 64 wired can be seen wearing a Thundercats belt buckle before getting
into his snazzy custom DeLorean that genuinely seems that something you find
in Primark number 65 additionally the dashboard in sideways DeLorean which can
also be seen for a split second in the trailer reads Feb 11 2014 15 or vol
number 66 wave could also be seen using a modified version of Max Rockatansky
shotgun from Mad Max he always has to modify things doesn’t he kids these days
can’t you settle for a standard sawn-off and sad really
number 67 in the aforementioned shot of all the famous cars vanta monster trucks
dizzy wall in from the kia turf war video game franchise can be seen
chatting to a fellow driver prior to the race I assume they’re discussing a
particularly interesting article on fracking he saw in The Guardian but who
knows number 68 one of the most obvious and glaring references is to Jurassic
Park which can be seen in the form of an enormous dinosaur namely Rex Lee the
female Tyrannosaurus Rex that are paid in the first Jurassic Park novel and
later renamed Roberta in the tour attic park movie Rexy can be seen in the
trailer hurtling after a monster truck as dinosaurs got a dinosaur number 69
another massive and super obvious movie reference comes when a very large
gorilla appears in the trailer grappling onto the Empire State Building aka King
Kong number 70 eagle-eyed viewers will have noticed that the car that is
eviscerated by the Bigfoot monster truck has a large QR code on the bonnet this
is in actual fact a real code if you pause the trailer and scan it you’ll be
taken to a recruitment website for the IAO by sneaky references are the best
references after all number 71 a manned ball can be seen
painted on the side of a trailer in the stacks a brief glance of wikipedia tells
me that bad balls are more of an American phenomenon so congrats to you
America on your exclusive references number 72 there’s also a brief flash of
a billboard that reads Delta City the future has a silver lining
this is a direct reference yep that’s right another one to the metal man slash
human leftover status Robocop number 73 eventually Wayne can be seen lifting a
boom box in the air to rally his allied forces against Sorento hmm what could
this be a reference to perhaps the 80s films say anything number 74 another
interesting inclusion is that of tracer on the hit online team-based multiplayer
first-person shooter overwatch tracer can be seen very
clearly in the trailer as she responds to way it’s called to save the Oasis
number 75 Mortal Kombat’s Cassie cage can also be seen in the big battle scene
running behind Lara Croft and Trace hitting a 3-pronged lady badass barrage
number 76 to the left of Lara you can also see a brief flash of red hair on a
woman with a very skimpy black top this is actually rain particular heroine of
the blood rain video game series number 77 they are accompanied in the battle
scene by the eponymous dead night parties from the 1992 American horror
comedy army of darkness written and directed by Sam Raimi movie number 78 a
group of UNSC Spartans can also be seen running into battle referencing the
iconic video game Halo you get a reference you get a reference number 79
one of the best appearances in the battle team is that of the Battletoads
who run into battle alongside everyone else I know I wouldn’t bump into them in
a dark alley number 80 also included in the enormous wave of attack is L Drakon
from the Covidien game series battle born L drank on its own a cybernetic
arms that replaces real ones but he had ripped off in a wrestling match ah core
number 81 the Battletoads and L dragon are joined by a knight from the classic
Atari 2600 game chowster who wouldn’t want to be joined in battle
by an armed and military warrior riding an ostrich
by the way this has more significance because and spoilers here for the book
one of the ways in which Wade wins one of the keys in the book is by playing
the video game chaste pony won’t be in the movie though
because watching people play video games in real life is
let alone on-screen number 82 a wide range of street fighter
characters can be seen as well including Ryu walking between all the famous movie
TV cars chun-li instigating the battle scenes and chun-li in blank are having a
perfect the barb that distracted globe wow the distracted globe really seems
like the hip happenin place to be man number 83 a view horror movie characters
can be seen in the movie too or at least in the trailer
Freddy Krueger from a Nightmare on Elm Street to shot several times and
obliterated into dozens of gold coins and Chucky from Charles play can be seen
slicing open someone’s neck who then turns into coins – because I think it’s
pg-13 number 84 behind the aforementioned obliterated into gold
coins Freddy Krueger classic action video game star Duke Nukem can also be
seen giving someone hell number 85 the appearance of characters like tracer
from overwatch and El dragon from battle born has fascinating implications for
the trajectory of the film the fact that in includes characters from the games
word exam does the original ready player one novel indicates that the film will
at least somewhat straight from the source material you’re playing a
dangerous game here Spielberg number 86 there’s a brief shot in the trailer of a
newspaper headline that reads Oasis coin the next dharma this is a joking nod to
the popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin we recently made a video about it in fact
you should watch it number 87 the much sought after Easter rank that grant the
finder ownership of the Oasis sits on a pedestal that is itself an easter egg
most people think it’s design is inspired by classic arcade game Mortal
Kombat but others have suggested it could also be a reference to the classic
arcade game Double Dragon number 88 as the director Spielberg was faced with
the prospect of including in the ready player one film a number of references
to his own work than existed in the book monty vis most recognizable work is
cited in the book so to avoid accusations of vanity he decided to
remove most of the spielberg references how ever number 89 one of the few
Spielberg references that remained in the film is Wade’s custom DeLorean the
car is now somewhat synonymous went back to the future which Spielberg produced
but the vehicle is so prominent in the book that it couldn’t be left out of the
movie number 19 in the book Wayde uses a powerup during the final confrontation
to temporarily transform into Ultraman the iconic Japanese superhero
however it appears in the film Ultraman has been replaced with the Iron Giant
the gargantuan Vin Diesel voice robot from the nineteen
animate classic of the same name this is likely due to the inability to obtain
the rights for Ultraman or because the iron giant is far more recognizable in
the West number 91 with the return of the Iron Giant at the big screen you may
be committed to know this his original voice actor the one and only vin diesel
has reprised the role 19 years after first voicing the character in the
original 99 animation the Iron Giant number 92 Spielberg approached Jean
walled up before he sadly passed away as he wanted the legendary actor to appear
in the film as himself and off to which Walder respectfully declined number 93
the ready player one movie has two main tank lines a better reality awaits and
break free the second of which is incidentally the same name is Henry on a
cron day second best song after into you sorry I don’t make the facts I just
report them okay number 94 there’s a number of very well-known classic 80
songs featured in the marketing adding to the already crushing nostalgia for
people who are older than me tract include jumped by Van Halen Tom Sawyer
by Rush and world in my eyes by Depeche Mode number 95 the plot of ready player
one is in itself an Amash to Charlie in the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
again in a lot of marketing to the film you can hear a cover of Gene Wilder song
pure imagination and that song this comes from the original Willy Wonka and
the Chocolate Factory movie in which the competition when his first step put into
the breathtaking chocolate room number 96 and the end of one of the trailers
viewers are treated to yet another back to the future reference ads are familiar
twinkle from a movie shimmers has have ready player one title appears on screen
mmm number 97 when this post of already player 1 was first released it didn’t
take long for people to point out the truly horrendous Photoshop job someone
had done anti-shia Dan’s leg I mean look at the size of that thing it’s like mr.
fantastic in a blender I’m surprised didn’t spend the entire movie walking in
a tight circle number 98 another poster shows Wade standing front and center
posing with his left hand holding a smile on his forehead strongly
reminiscent of Marty from Back to the Future with his right arm in the air
mimicking John bender in The Breakfast Club number 99 James Holiday can also be
seen wearing a Space Invaders t-shirt on the same poster they
we are packing these pop-culture not as densely as they possibly can hey and yet
no reference to the Living Goddess that is Jennifer Lawrence just seems weird to
me that’s all just seems weird to seem no you’re overreacting
oh my lord happens be praised though Lara Croft makes a number of appearances
in the trailer Artemis can be seeing actually
cosplaying as Lara Croft down at the bottom of the poster she’s wearing the
same tank top and short shorts as Croft and he’s even rocking the signature dual
pistols to number 101 in 2015 screenwriter Zack Penn stated in an
interview that Klein was working on a sequel to the novel a couple of years
later in December of 2017 Klein finally confirmed himself he is indeed writing a
sequel to ready player one what’s it called ready player one – no that’s
weird ready player two hey maybe could be
about him getting married to one of the many many pop-culture references anyway
that was 101 fans but ready player one did you enjoy yourself did you learn
much let me know in the comments below and hey did I miss a reference I may
well have done all so I need you to tell me in the comments down below what to do
next I want to give stuff to you that you want so I need to know what you want
what my saying anyway there are two videos on screen right now check it out
I’m sure you’ll like them and in the meantime see you later

Future of Fact | What Happens Next | Retro Report


I’m a captive audience in this immersive world. You’ve got my attention. Don’t squander it. Welcome. Suit-up sequence initiated. Biometric signature required. Virtual and augmented reality platforms are sweeping the world of gaming. There are games that go deep, and create richly immersive virtual worlds. And there are games that go wide, augmenting the real world and making the game appear anywhere you go. In 2016 alone, about 2.3 billion dollars in investment poured into companies working on virtual and augmented reality platforms. For some, it’s a bet that the technology is poised to cross the threshold from toy to tool. Turning the world into a screen may sound like a dystopia to some. “They called our generation the missing millions.” But backers of the technology say there could be something irresistible in a device that displays facts you need to know, right when you need to know them, right before your eyes. So many things that we now have anxiety around, about our interaction with the physical world, will just stop being an issue. You’re at a water park, and you don’t know where your child is. With a wearable device, you can see them, through buildings, through anywhere, they’re over here, they’re over there. And what about more complex facts? Some journalists say immersive storytelling could be a powerful way to capture attention of news audiences, so they don’t just think about events, but experience them. How am I going to stay relevant, and get you to care about stories that are on the other side of the world, that you’ve started to block out? I look at these immersive storytelling platforms as the next step in the evolution of journalism. One of the most straightforward methods simply allows viewers to look around. “On a rooftop above Falluja, an Iraqi sniper takes careful aim at an ISIS soldier.” When the New York Times’ Ben Solomon rode along with Iraqi special forces liberating Falluja in 2016, he took a 360-degree camera. The result was a mix of war reporting that you’d see on TV, alongside moments of something unmistakably new. These are the cells where ISIS would hold their prisoners. As the door shuts, the freedom to direct your own gaze emphasizes the confinement of the space in way that a fixed perspective just can’t. The fact, here, is something you feel. So, as a journalist, you’re always trying to give people what Martha Gellhorn called “the view from the ground.” But with virtual reality, now, I’m asking my audience to do something much more intense. I’m asking them to be on-scene, to take me out of the picture, and become the witness themselves. Nonny De la Peña and her collaborators are going further than 360 video, creating densely-researched projects that let viewers explore a street bombed in Syria, or fly above a melting glacier in Greenland. We use Google Maps. We use photographs. We use video. We’re very thorough, and very careful, to use the real source material to inform what we build. All that material helps recreate experiences like this one, with Frontline, which takes viewers inside a solitary confinement cell, alongside a man who spent years living in one. “So, you know, I would take blood and I would write messages all over my cell, you know, help me.” The screen disappears. You’re no longer separated from the material that you’re looking at. You’re inside the story. And that gives you this incredible feeling of presence. A feeling like your whole body’s on-scene, and you’re witnessing an event as it really unfolds around you. “I cut myself thousands of times. Just over, and over, and over, and over.” This immersive project, created by conflict photographer Karin Ben Kehlifa, is even more interactive. It draws on interviews with fighters on opposite sides of conflicts in Israel and Palestine, El Salvador, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Those who attacked us killed my mother and my father right before my eyes. The project, called “The Enemy,” transforms the source material into digital avatars of each man. They can appear in an entirely virtual space, or inside your living room, with the aid of a phone. It doesn’t feel seamlessly real, but it’s still gripping to share their space and listen to them, as their eyes follow you around the room. When you listen to those fighters, realize what they’ve been through, how much hope they still have, how much humanity they still carry. When people go in, they know those fighters exist. They even have a memory of having met those fighters once they come out from there. And I can see that some people are very emotional when they leave this, this experience. But some critics worry that more emotion may be the last thing we need in news. Today, faith in the press has eroded, at the same time new platforms enable new ways to push our buttons, with fake news stories, videos that can make anyone say anything, and outlets that whip up feelings to reinforce particular points of view. If a fake Facebook post can trick you now, imagine what an immersive storytelling piece could do to you, right? The moment at which our bodies and our minds really believe we are someplace else, that is an experience that really threatens deliberation and judgment. One bad scenario is that everything becomes even more about confirmation bias, and people will just completely disconnect from anybody who doesn’t already agree with them. If we are using media to create multiple and competing social realities, then we are imperiling the future of what counts as a fact. Whether you’re talking about screens that replace reality entirely, or ones that simply augment what you’re seeing everywhere, what feels new here is the degree to which this form of communication could short-circuit judgment by getting right in your face. Yet there are precedents for this. There are certain things that have a particular ability to capture our attention. And, you know, today that’s the screen, but the first iteration was the poster. The poster, when it came, out was a sensation. Especially in the late 19th century, in France, when they started using bright colors, moving images, sexy women. People were astonished, they couldn’t believe this thing. They said, you know, it controls the mind, it’s out of control. There’s still pretty strenuous laws, even in New York City, as to where you can have posters. That’s why there aren’t that many eye-level posters in New York. You may not realize that, they’re usually up. It’s because they banned posters being right in your face at all times. People worry that, if we’re giving people an embodied experience, that it’s a subjective experience, and it can’t have the transparency and authenticity that journalism has before it. VR will be used for propaganda. It will be used badly for journalism. It’ll be used for incredible films. But that’s always going to be about, who’s the maker? And it’s not about the medium. And that could mean that the best defense we have against manipulated facts on immersive platforms may well be the same non-technological defenses we’ve been using all along. When misinformation comes, journalists need to be there, to be like, “Okay. You know me. You know me. You can trust me. You know my track record. You know my credibility. You know my history. You know my values and what I stand for. That is fake. That is real.” Every information technology comes with this twin possibility of greater education and information, but greater capacity to manipulate and deceive. The technology it takes to seize people’s attention, and make them pay attention to facts, has always been a double-edged sword. And it seems every era’s next layer of innovation ends up making that sword a little bit bigger. So, you know, once upon a time, the persuaders were, basically, out on the street, in posters, maybe the town crier. Then it slowly moved into the house, that was radio and the television. Then it came closer to us, with the phone and the computer screen. Now, the future is one where maybe it’s all over your body, even close to your eyeballs, maybe plugged into your brain, you know? So it’s getting closer and closer and closer to us. So where is the future of fact in this medium? We’re just barely getting a glimpse of what it’s going to look like.

Nice experience and obviously with the technology nowadays, with the tools nowadays, in terms of simulation it’s very important and many things you can simulate before you actually plan ahead and actually produce parts. I’m used to different kinds of simulators than this but it’s nice. It’s very exiting also for us to give him some insights into our daily business. It was very special. I’ve explained what Augmented Reality is about and how we use it for manufacturing safety. The digital transformation is the new way for our plannings and I guess also for the Formula One Team. It was cool for our team spirit.

MatPat vs Donut – VR Driving in a REAL CAR


– Are you ready to give this thing a shot? – I’m so ready. (laughing) How is it? – [Man With VR Headset] All right! – You got this? Oh (beep)! You’re just starting,
are you that confident in how this is feeling? – Video games are meant
to mimic real life. But what if video games were real life? – That’s insane! – No. That’s – [All] Car Wars! (thunder rumbling) – [Studio Voices] Ooh! Ah! Oh! – [Male Voice] Oh my god! – He knows more about video
games than Mario himself. He’s a big-time theater
nerd, just like me, and he has multiple YouTube channels that have more subscribers than ours. Host of “Film Theorist”
and “Game Theorist”, ladies and gentlemen, Matpat! – (laughing) Hey!
(men clapping) Wow, I get applause too, thank you guys! – Today’s challenge is fairly simple. Nolan? – All right, we’ve got a
camera on the back of our car transmitting video to these goggles. So we’re gonna split into two teams. Both drivers are gonna do the course. We’re gonna combine the
drivers’ lap times together. Whichever team has the lowest
combined lap time wins. There is a time penalty for hitting cones. The slowest team gets a punishment. (dramatic gasping) – Oh, oh, great! Okay, what are we talking about? (groaning) – [Zach] We’re talking about this. – This a Carolina Reaper pepper chip. The hottest chip in the world and we can all speak from
experience, it is not a fun time. – Is it really that bad? – [James, Nolan And Zach] It’s really bad. – Very bad. – Probably one of the worst
things ever happened to me. – So is this an official
rig that you guys have? – Official is one word that you could use. We bought FPV drone camera
that you wear the goggles with, so it’s really low latency
so you see in real time what you’re doing. Then we’ve got it clamped to this thing and it’s honestly pretty sturdy. – [Matpat] Good job, man. This is impressive, I love this. – Thanks! – So we get 15 minutes to practice, not on the course but in the VR headset to just get a feel for what
this is gonna actually be like. – Where am I? (laughing) I’m gonna try get close to the camera and see what that feels like. See what the field of
view is on this camera, and just try to get used
to it as fast as I can. I wanna win, I don’t
wanna eat that chip, so. – Oh gee, oh my (laughing), you’re just starting off like noth– Are you that confident
in how this is feeling? – No, I just knew I had
plenty of space. (laughing) – That’s rude. ‘Cause it’s a wide angle lens, stuff that’s close seems further away. – Okay, so we got some cones up here. Oh, you got this! – [Zach] Oh, is this a little slow? – Yeah, a little slow.
– Oh boy, look at me go! – [James] How fast am I going?
– You’re going at about five. (laughing) – Nice! – [Nolan] No, oh, oh! (laughing) We got a cone. – [Matpat] It literally does
feel like a video game though; a very nauseating, low-quality video game, but a video game nonetheless, it’s great! – Dude, that is so weird. I think I’m gonna puke! – Yeah, feeling a little sick? – [Nolan And Zack] Yeah. – Sick about your chances of winning? (laughing)
– Nope. – No. – You’re awfully quiet there, man. (laughing) – I… Feel really bad. (speakers drowning each other out) I’m very nauseous right now. – No-one’s gonna puke and
then have to eat the chip. – Yeah. – I didn’t realize how much, even if I was driving
in this big parking lot, I’d be looking over there
and looking over there. – The lack of peripheral vision, just being limited to what
you can see on the screen is really tough. – We can’t even see our front corners. – [James] I know. – Think we’re gonna take down some cones. – (laughing) Yeah, it’ll definitely be the battle of the cones and the penalties. – [Matpat] Oh, certainly. (steady electronic music) – So the course starts out
with, it’s a little zigzag. Then we’ve got kind of
a sweeping left-hander, then we have a left. Then we’ve got kind of a series of 180. Then, finally, a hairpin,
a 180 degrees right, straight back into a very wide area. Then we come through that
to a pretty immediate left. Then it’s a series of three
slaloms that are really tight, and then we sweep right and find ourselves in the exit chamber. You basically have an inch on either side to get the car through. – How do we decide who goes first? – Let’s rock, paper, scissors. Two out of three?
– Yeah. (palms slapping)
Rock, paper, scissors, sheet. (bell dinging) (palms slapping)
Rock, paper, scissors, sheet. (bell dinging) (palms slapping)
Rock, paper, scissors, sheet. (Windows error tone) (palms slapping)
Rock, paper, scissors, sheet. – Aah!
(bell dinging) – All right. Nolan, you
wanna go first or second? – First.
– Second? – First.
– Second. We’ll go second. (laughing)
Second! – Let the games begin! – I will say my nerves are building. – All right. Here we go, wish us luck! – [Timekeeper] In three, two , one, go! (engine humming) – [Nolan] Strong start for Matpat, he’s going into that first chicane here. – Straight, okay, and right. Perfect. – Wow, he’s insane. – He is cooking. – How’re we looking, how’re we looking? – You’re good, straight
through, turn straight. – I don’t wanna eat that chip. – I don’t wanna eat the chip either. – [Zach] Tighten up,
tighten up, tighter right. Now hairpin all the way left. – Left, left, left. Hit, hit, hit hard. – This where it gets technical. – Straight, straight, straight. – And now hard left.
– Hard left. – Hard left.
– Hard, hard, hard, hard.
– Perfect, good, and straight now, straight now. All the way right, all the way right.
– Okay, and right. – He got through it. – Oh my god. – [James] Is that where I hit four cones? – No. – I think we might have
gotten out of that scott-free. All right, now down the path. Right, right, right. Okay, straighten up. – He’s coming down the home stretch into the narrow section. – Perfect, run it.
– There, run it. There we go! Yeah buddy! (clapping) – Dang, dude. – Dude, that is fast. – All right, put me in
the driver’s seat, coach. – Getting good at third person driving! All those years of video
game experience paying off! No cones down? – [James] Yeah. – Yeah! That in and of itself I’m happy with. – Shall we do it again? – I think we do it again.
– All right. I’m not gonna get greedy, I’m not gonna go too hard at it. – [Timekeeper] Zach and Matt, lap two. – Here we go.
– Go! – [Nolan] Off they go. (engine humming) – You got the right here. Great. Turn, turn, turn, okay. Back, back, back. – Zach’s handling it no problem. – (laughing) I know. – [Nolan] Into that left handing sweeper. – And get over to the
right, yeah, there it is. Slow, slow, slow, you’re
getting real tight over here. – Oh yeah, real tight.
– Keep going right, right. Hard, hard, hard, hard, hard. – [Both] Oh, oh! – Knocked over a cone. – I hear those nerds over there.
– Yeah, I know, they’re taunting it. – Cheering.
– Okay, get left. – You really have to line yourself up into that narrow section. See how he does it. Okay. – [Matpat] And start your right. And left, hard, hard, hard. – He does the chicane section, no problem; forward Zach Jobe. He’s so smooth. – [Matpat] Yeah, going in there. Right, right, right a little bit more. – All right, here he comes
down the narrow section. Crosses the line, wow! (engine roaring) – Whoo! All right, I think we
may have hit one or two. – Maybe we should hit them
with a 55 second penalty for celebration, excessive celebration. I’m just saying, maybe it’s an idea. – I tore that thing up!
– [Nolan] Yeah, well done. That was really– – That felt good. – [Nolan] Yeah, that
was nice, very smooth. Definitely having the
lowest combined time– – Would bring us out in top. If we go out there and
we go around the course in less seconds than the other team, I really feel like we can get the win. – Yeah. Well said. – Yeah.
– Do your best, James. – Yes, sir.
– I believe in you, man. We’ll be okay. – (laughing) We’ll be okay! – [Timekeeper] All right, here we go. In three, two, one, go! – Go get ’em boys! Yeehaw! – [Nolan] Veer, more,
more, more, more, more. All right, other way. Great, great, great. Other way. Other way. – Little tight.
– Oh! – [Nolan] Line up the
approach. Keep going. All right. – [Matpat] It’s feeling
pretty seamless, I gotta say. They’re smooth, man. – [Nolan] All right, straighten out. Oh, oh, no, no! (dramatic clanging)
(beep) – Oh, oh, no!
– Yes, yes, yes! – Oh, no! – Just go, just go, just go, just go! Start cutting, start– Right, right, right, right. – Okay.
– They’re way worse at this than us.
– Okay, oh and there’s it on the other side.
(beep) I mean, they’re hitting a lot of cones, they’re not necessarily knocking over all of those cones. – Go wide a little bit. Go
to the right, there you go. Now start cutting the other way. Keep turning, keep turning, keep turning. Position yourself,
position yourself, great. – Oh, they’re getting close to those. – That right, that left
side is getting tight. Oh, right side. (dramatic clanging)
– Ali baba, there’s one! – [Nolan] Left, left, keeping going. Keep going, start turning right. There you go, yeah, okay. Good, steady pace, steady pace. – Oh, last one! Oh, come on! – You did good. – Sweet. What was my time? (beep) I got smoked. That is so stressful. – Okay, so combined, you guys did a 250. – Yeah, (laughing) and then I did a– – You did a 220. – (laughing) Yeah. (laughing) – [Zach] Boys, it’s not looking good. (mumbling) – You got this, dude. You got this. (clapping hands) All right? – Feeling good about this one. – I’ve put us in a terrible position just like most fathers. You got this. – Honk when you’re ready! – I will when I’m going!
– We know, he’s getting ready! – When I’m ready to go! – He has a mountain to climb and he’s gonna do it on his time! – (laughing) What was that about? – And (car horn honking) (electric guitar music) Oh my god, this is so weird. – I don’t think they started the timer. Hey, look at him go, he’s doing great! – Left, left, left, left,
left, left, left, left, left. Ooh, nice Nolan. – This is actually
legitimately really impressive! – [James] Left, left, left, left, left. – Did he rip off the headset
midway through this or what? – [James] Left, left, left, left. Little bit to the right. – Okay. – There’s something fishy going on here! – [Zach] A fire just
lights in Nolan’s gut. – [James] Right, right, right, right, right, right, right, right. Okay. Straighten out. – What is this, there’s no way! – I will literally be very mad (laughing) if he managed. – [Matpat] There’s no way. – [James] Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go! Yeah! – I can’t even hate that! – Wow!
– We did it! (hurling)
(laughter) – We gotta give credit
where credit is due. That was a hot lap. (groaning) – Let’s hear the official times. – Zach and Matt, combined
time, two minutes, 59 seconds. – Ooh.
– All right, under the three. – Wow.
– I’ll take that. – [Matpat] Respectable. – James and Nolan, three
minutes and 45 seconds. – Whoo! (hands clapping) Yeah, buddy! Victory is sweet, but defeat– is spicy.
– Is spicy. (laughing) – Whoa! (laughing) – [Matpat] Sorry. – Oh, this sucks dude, I hate this! I just did this! (laughing) – Cheers.
– Cheers. (dramatic whooshing) – A huge, huge thank you to Kia for making this series possible. They gave us a ton of cars for us to do our head-to-heads with. Today we drove the 2020
Kia Soul GT Line Turbo. Kia’s quirky city runabout is back and it looks better than ever. The Soul GT Line Turbo is powered by a twin-scroll

What Happens in Real Life But Not in Video Games?


Who doesn’t love video games? Some play them for hours, others for days,
while others cannot even see their life without them. Every year, developers make games better. However, no matter how cool and realistic
graphics they have, there are a lot of differences between video games and real life. I counted at least 39. 1) Checkpoints
Failed the mission in the game, no problem – you have a checkpoint. Failed an exam or an interview in real life
– you have to put up with it. 2) Travel
In the game, you can go to another city, country, or planet in just a few seconds. In life: you fly on a plane for two hours
and then wait for your luggage. Boring. 3) Money
Need some cash? Take a walk through the woods, find gold coins,
they are scattered everywhere. Do you need money in reality? Count the days to your paycheck. 4) Medicine
Is your game character seriously injured? Drink the potion and everything is okay! Just caught a cold in real life – you have
to sit at home and drink medications for a whole week. 5) Sleep
To gain strength, you can sleep only an hour in game time and that’s all – you’re ready
for saving the world and space adventures. In reality, you sleep, say, 6 hours, and still
wake up in the morning tired and frustrated. 6) Clothing
You can choose any clothes of any color and style in a second. Out of the game, you’re spending half a day
to pick trousers to go with your new cap. 7) Police
At speed, you get away from the police chase, the cops will never catch you! In life: “Here’s a $100 fine for you. Don’t break the speed limit anymore.” “Okay, I won’t. Sorry.” 8) Save
You can go through your favorite mission again. Unfortunately, the best moments of life are
only stored in our memory. 9) Dialogues
You choose among several options of what to say to other characters, you may think, pause
before answering. In reality, your options are: “Um… Hello!”, “A boring question about the
weather”, “Run away as far as possible.” 10) Civilizations
You can build a city, a country, manage the economy, restore order in your civilization
in a day. In real world you can’t restore order in
your room. 11) To-do list
In video games, you check the task list and see what to do next. In life, you leave the university and ask
yourself: “Okay, what’s next?” 12) Transport
You drive a sports car, a huge robot, a spaceship. In life: you take an Uber to get home. 13) Food
In a game, you don’t need food and still you’re full of energy. In reality, you open the refrigerator at midnight
to get that last slice of pizza. 14) Level-up
Gain level 100 at a game: you’re cool, invincible, everyone loves you. Reach level 100 in life: you put on a false
jaw to crack that apricot. 15) Superpowers
You’re super strong, you can teleport, you’re super fast! In reality, you are superfast only if you’re
late for work. 16) Zombies
In a game you have fun fighting in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. In life, Ride the subway . Sleepy as a zombie. 17) Monster hunter
Yes, you’re cool, you defeat hordes of monsters, mutants, vampires, but in life, you run around
the apartment yelling, “Help! There’s a cockroach in the bathroom!” 18) Building
In virtual reality, you can build a base for your tribe in a minute. In life, you spend half a day fixing a cupboard. 19) Implements
You move fast around the world with a bag in which there is a first-aid kit, a sword,
a flamethrower, potions, bricks, a gas mask, a tent. In reality: you’re tired because two bags
of groceries are really heavy. 20) Race
On your Lamborghini, you reach 186 mph, overtaking all the cars around… Wake up! You fell asleep while spending a third hour
in a traffic jam. 21) Level of difficulty
Can’t complete the mission? No problem – change the difficulty level! But in life, there’s only one level of difficulty… Hardcore! 22) Hairstyle
Want to change your hairstyle? Let’s see: afro, short haircut, dreadlocks,
whatever, just click the button. In a real salon, you wait for an hour and
if you don’t like it, wait a couple of months until your hair grows back. 23) Language
You switch to any language in the game; in reality, you spend a lot of money, time and
effort on this. 24) Professions
Wanna be a carpenter? A magician? Alchemist? Racer? Space cowboy? Okay, here’s your task and half an hour
of time. Congratulations, you’ve mastered a new profession! In life, you study for several years at university. 25) Hidden Object
“Hmm, let’s open the map and see where I can get the wings of the salamander. Oh, here they are, in another city! I’ll go get them.” In life, you turn your room upside down to
find the keys to the house. 26) Pause
Tired of playing? You can pause the game, drink tea, or sleep. When problems pile up on you for real, a pause
will only aggravate the situation. 27) Skip
You can skip a boring cutscene or an uninteresting dialogue. But in reality, you try not to fall asleep
in a boring lesson or meeting. 28) Fighter skills
Win a fight with the most dangerous villain of the 7 kingdoms. In life: “Hmm, I’d better go around this
dark lane.” 29) Final boss
You boldly and confidently defeat the most terrible boss and save the world. In reality, it’s scary to ask the boss for
a pay raise. 30) Story twists
In a game with an interesting plot, an event happened that you did not expect. You admire this and thank the developers for
the cool story. In life, just a thought of something going
wrong annoys you. 31) Weather
You run around in the middle of a snowy apocalypse, or you sink into the mouth of a volcano – it
doesn’t matter, I’m fine in a shirt and shorts. For real, you are trembling from cold because
you forgot to close the window at night. 32) Cooking
Take the powder from the horn of the minotaur, the scales of the mermaid, the feather of
the sphinx and the fang of a vampire. Mix it all in one pile and get a potion that
makes you invisible. In a real kitchen, a turkey burned because
you forgot to set the timer. 33) Body
You are immediately born into excellent physical shape and a beautiful body. In life, you spend years of training in the
gym so that six-pack appears on your tummy. But don’t think that games are more interesting
and cooler than real life. On many accounts, games lose a lot. 34) Graphics
If your computer or console is not powerful enough, the game will lag. With the real world, this will never happen
and it has the best graphics. 35) Princess
In a video game, you go through the dungeons, jump over cliffs with lava, fight monsters,
defeat the dragon and only then get the princess. In real life, becoming a hero for your princess
is much easier. Or is it?.. 36) Loading
You have to wait for loading between areas. In life, everything is already loaded and
you only wait in lines! Which is just about forever. Whatever. 37) Friends
Your friends in a game always need something from you: “Hey, help us get the gold!” “Hey, help us kick that sea monster’s
butt!” “Hey, help save the village from the robbers!” Fortunately, things get cooler in life: “Hey,
how about a little party?” 38) Other characters
You meet a gray-haired wise wizard in a hat in a game world. All you hear from him is a couple of phrases
like, “I need more sphinx feathers to make the potion.” In real life, you sit in a taxi and the driver
can tell you enough stories for a full-blown book. 39) Game Over
You can quickly go through the game, but life goes on. And it is much more interesting! Hey, if you learned something new today, then
give the video a like and share it with a friend! And here are some other cool videos I think
you’ll enjoy. Just click to the left or right, and stay
on the Bright Side of life!
