isa is a balance to be we do, but there is a balance to be struck as to whether you should financially penalised people who may not know what they are doing. financially penalised people who may not know what they are doingm financially penalised people who may not know what they are doing. it is really nice to see. thank you very indeed. please stay with us. the headlines are on the way. hello, this is breakfast with rogerjohnson. coming up before 9am we'll have a special seasonal edition of click. but first, a summary of this morning's main news. at least 39 people have been killed, and many more injured, in an attack on a nightclub in the turkish city of istanbul. police are still looking for the gunman, who witnesses say opened fire at random. it's the latest in a wave of attacks and the city's governor has described it as an act of terrorism.
8:31 am
16 foreign nationals are among the dead. the london ambulance service says its control room staff had to log calls with pen and paper overnight, because of technical problems. the difficulties occurred in the early hours of this morning between 12.30am and 5.15am. the service says its staff are trained to prepare for such problems, and additional personnel had been on duty to offer support. it said patients were prioritised as normal. theresa may has called for 2017 to be a year of unity and opportunity following the eu referendum, which she says has exposed the divisions in britain. in her new year message, the prime minister says she will work to secure a brexit deal for everyone, whether they'd voted to leave or remain. and the archbishop of canterbury, has also used his new year message to call for reconciliation following the referendum campaign. justin welby said the country's christian tradition would help to heal any differences. he also praised the efforts of refugees who have made their home in britain.
8:32 am
lets get the sport now. happy new year, and a happy new yearfor chelsea fans? yes, they are on a record equalling winning streak, but antonio conte said that does not matter as long as you hang on and win the title. who would bet against them? stoke played brilliantly yesterday but chelsea we re brilliantly yesterday but chelsea were too good and perhaps too good for the rest of the premier league. stoke a re for the rest of the premier league. stoke are writing, they always play brilliantly, i wish! stoke are writing, they always play brilliantly, iwish! —— stoke stoke are writing, they always play brilliantly, i wish! —— stoke are my team. chelsea will start the new year still six points clear at the top of the premier league table, although they were made to work hard before beating stoke. one more win and they'll set a new premier league record. patrick gearey reports. antonio conte needs new no new year's champagne. this is the intoxicating effect of 13 straight premier league wins. mixed with no little adrenaline.
8:33 am
chelsea had to work for their record. stoke had pegged them back once, before willian made it 2—1. there was then a manic minute. first, 35 year old peter crouch, of pensionable age in the premier league, scored his first premier league goal since may 2015, a goal that hadn't been fully digested when chelsea provided the next course 75 seconds later. willian again, costa made it four. chelsea level arsenal's premier league record. who can stop them? liverpool are nearest right now. what was reckoned to be a feast of attacking football against manchester city produced a one goal, this was it, scored by georginio wijnaldum. it gavejurgen klopp victory over his old acquaintance pep guardiola. manchester united may not have given up on the chase although middlesbrough were some hurdle. rod leadbetter gave them the lead at old trafford. none of the complicated stuff would work so united went simple, long ball, header, anthony martial. still five minutes left. united only needed one before juan mata picked out paul pogba. a united turnaround,
8:34 am
a fitting way to mark alex ferguson's 75th birthday. a few miles north but a world away are burnley, quietly astonishing in their first season back in the premier league. andre gray's hat—trick helped see off struggling sunderland. who needs champagne when you have this? celtic start the new year with a nineteen point lead at the top of the scottish premiership after coming from behind to beat rangers 2—1 in the old firm derby, scott sinclair with the winner. and there's much more on all of yesterday's football on the bbc sport website. sir andy murray has won his first match since being knighted. he beat milos raonic in straight sets to claim third place at the world tennis championship in abu dhabi, with rafa nadal later beating david goffin in the final. murray is preparing for the first grand slam of the year, the australian open, so how does it feel gavin lowe be here at 9am with a
8:35 am
recap on the main stories. we say goodbye from breakfast. let's go to click. happy new year, thanks for watching. i'm so excited about this. our very first click live! we have eight amazing tech demos that had never been demonstrated like this before, it will be terrifying, what could possibly go wrong? everything! why is there a laptop on your knee? because we haven't finished writing the show yet! is that a bad thing to be doing this close?! hello? we have a saying in television, never work with children, animals or computers, because they are the most unpredictable things you can get in a tv recording environment. is there anybody there?
8:36 am
well, that was interesting. hello? can you see me? i'm not sure the system is quite stable yet. laughter. anyway, are you ready? yes! i said, are you ready? let's go! applause. thank you so much, thank you for coming. i'm so excited about this. our very first click live! ijust wanted to check who has heard of us,
8:37 am
who has seen us on the tv? brilliant. that is more viewers than i thought we had! who haven't seen us before but thought they'd come along? yeah! brilliant! who thought they were coming to a recording of the one show? laughter. it's too late, we've got you now! and hopefully we are going to blow your minds tonight. the first thing you may notice is between you and me, there is a very strange transparent screen. i'm not sure if that's for your protection or mine. that is part of the holographic projection system that brought the better looking me to life. we are going to tell you how the hologram works but first i have to introduce you to the other half of this show, she is 100% real, kate russell! applause. awkward geek hugs!
8:38 am
physical contact doesn't usually happen! can we run the next holographic demo? let's see what we've got. 0k! right now, we are in a holographic fish tank. i don't like the way it's looking at me! i'm just going to... laughter. i'm going to get some volunteers up. who wants to get eaten by a shark? we are going to find out more about how this works. to do that i'm going to invite on the man who came up with the idea. please welcome him! applause. noses pressed against this.
8:39 am
so, this is not actually a hologram, is it? talk a lot about the technology. it's not a hologram in the true sense but it is giving a holographic effect. we've created an ultralight wave, and incredibly transparent fabric. we can stretch this in any size and scale and activate it by projection technology. now for something really special. everything you've seen so far has been pre—recorded including me at the front. now we are going to attempt what we think is the first ever live interview by hologram. you know the bbc has studios all around the world. we have pulled out all the stops to bring you several superstar guests live by hologram. we are going to our first guest. are you there, obi—wan kenobi?
8:40 am
hello my friend. and all the young padowans in the click academy. now we are going to make a very special call to the doctor. are you there? yes, lam here in a sense, but it's just that you are not there, if you understand me. it's a bit difficult to explain really. laughter. it's the doctor, everybody! applause. one more guest. really, him? shouldn't he be busy making stuff up? is he now making stuff up? 0k! please welcome to the stage, the president—elect donald trump! i've got to say, we are going to build a wall. it's going to be awesome and we're going to build it out of holograms
8:41 am
so the mexicans can walk straight through it. laughter. please say a huge thank you to one of the greatest impressionists, jon culshaw! applause. our next team aren't into entertainment so much, but they are changing lives. welcome to the stage professor v and his team from imperial college london! we are not showing things that are... we are showing our current development. there are ups and downs in terms of getting it running together, there's definitely some nerves involved in that on the stage. we're from the bio—mechatronics laboratory at imperial. the way we look at it is, no one really knows what it is. so we get to do whatever we want.
8:42 am
this is a robotic hand. chris is manipulating that robotic hand but he's actually using this device here, which is listening to him flexing his muscles. yes, actually listening to him. if chris was missing a hand or trying to manipulate things about on his own, that hand could replace his hand. you see how it's mimicking the movements of his other hand. we have a robotic arm picking up and dropping small stress balls. i dropped one on the table in the dress rehearsal, but hopefully it will go fine. we've been working a lot with people missing limbs. imagine if he was operating a robot in space. he can move his arm, have the fingers move and perform delicate operations. the us navy is looking at this to help people disarm bombs. we've looked at technology that
8:43 am
allows you to control things through electromagnetic impulses, but you say this is listening, how does that work? if you want a quick example, when you're going to bed tonight, put your ear against your bicep. form a good seal and slowly flex your bicep. what you'll hear, if you form a good seal between your ear and bicep, you'll hear this rumbling sound. that's the sound of your muscle fibres vibrating when they move against one another. it produces something we can pick up. his muscle fibres are moving ever so slightly on a microscopic scale. they are picked up by that blue band he's wearing and the band is transferring the signals to operate the hand. let's move over here, and we have gotjames.
8:44 am
james is going to play a game for us. he's sporting a nice 1970s look, apparently he's got legwarmers under his jeans! we've never really done anything like this before. we've demonstrated at exhibitions, we've been to london tech week but we've never had cameras pointed at us. we've never done anything live with an audience so it's quite exciting. james is actually blinking to control the mario game. you can see that on these screens in the front there. james is using just one sensor. it's picking up the muscles that move when he blinks his eyes. and in response he is playing this video game. we are looking at this, for example, if any of you have done an ice bucket challenge, we are hoping this can help als patients communicate with their computer. this summer we had a man
8:45 am
who couldn't move or speak because he was locked in, playing a video game by blinking his eyes. that's what they are hoping to move towards. james, you are blinking good at this game, can i say! thank you very much. applause. we've got chris on a bike. what are we looking at here? what chris is doing is with the band similar to what he wore with the arm. the chain on the bicycle is shifting in response to him twitching his arms, so he's changing gears without moving his fingers at all. a huge round of applause for our brilliant guests! professor v and his team! applause. we all love furry animals, nice, fluffy furry animals.
8:46 am
sometimes technology can be responsible for helping our feathered and furry friends out of very dire situations. please, watch this video. dramatic music. i have to say, i was a little bit cheeky there. because we were feeling what you felt during that. those of you wearing your wristbands, hold them up please. what colour are they? some very excited people over there! we are here with our emotional sensing wristbands.
8:47 am
they measure how excited or possibly stressed you are. today we are giving them out to the audience members and they are going to be taking part in an experiment to see how excited they've got. you've worked with lady gaga and the black eyed peas. why would you do this in the context of your work, working with big performers? fans get super excited. we've toured with a lot of music artists and we stood side—by—side with the black eyed peas, 80,000 people really excited. you'll notice they were changing colour but that's not the only way you can tell what's going on. what have you been doing to help us show our viewers and our audience what their feelings are like? we've never tried these biometric wristbands before so it's very exciting. we've done a lot of real—time data visualisations from audience—generated feeds. you can see what we were looking at there was obviously
8:48 am
the emotional pulses. if it's blue, you are feeling strong intense emotions, down to those of you who are emotional deserts! your wristbands would have remained white throughout. now we are going to take you to mars. to do that we need a couple of experts. would you please welcome from california, from nasa'sjet propulsion laboratory! applause. alex, we also need some martian astronauts. we've got three martians here. the first you'll recognise is kate. what are they seeing and what are they using on their heads to do it? they are wearing an augmented reality device and they are seeing
8:49 am
the most accurate 3d model of mars that's ever been made. this is the best reconstruction of mars that we can make, given the data that we have. i think this is kate's point of view you are seeing. this isn't cgi, these are real photographic images stitched together in a 3d landscape. exactly. we built a landscape so our scientists and engineers can walk around on mars. why would they want to do that, is itjust a toy? it's not. the tricky thing about driving a robot on another planet is nobody can tell us where the robot is and what the surrounding scenery looks like. whenever we take a picture, you're taking the 3d world and compressing it into 2d and distorting it and losing information. a round of applause for our astronauts please. applause. we're going to switch to another demo and bring victor on. next we've got a video of how they are using them in nasa. not even on earth,
8:50 am
they're using it in space. run the video and tell us why on earth would you give hololens to astronauts because they are already there doing the cool stuff? nasa is trying to send astronauts further than they've ever been before. for them to do that, they have to do their work more effectively by themselves without the help of mission control. how does it help them to do that? technologies like these and these applications we're showing you will enable them to do the procedures by themselves. giving them 3—d instruction guides, allowing them to walk around their station, and have guides walking them through the procedure. it's like a training manual when you look at a button and it says, don't press this one! exactly. apart from on the space station, who might use this? why might we be using augmented reality when things appear in your vision in the future? there's a lot of industries using it right now, architecture,
8:51 am
medical, automobile. the thing it is most tangible with is party planning or building your own space, your own house, picking furniture and placing it in specific spots before buying anything. what we are going to do now is an augmented reality experience where our astronauts will be able to see us, but there will also be something in the middle of the stage. what is going to be in the middle of the stage? this is nasa's next mars rover, the 20 rover. this is the mars 2020 rover. it's not been built yet. it's only in the design stage. they can see you but they can see this rover in the way. you can see them, you can't see anything so they look like a couple of loons. who would use this? right now we are using it on many of our missions,
8:52 am
as spacecraft designers, our mechanical engineers are able to design, being able to visualise this tool before they build it. it's been an amazing tool for them to use. i'm hearing we've got time for one more volunteer. if there's anyone else who would like to experience it? i have to have a go. i have to come onto the stage and have a go with the hololens. i've always wanted to look at mars! applause. as patrick moore: my goodness. this is inspiring me. what a very fine rover that is! i think that will be very good at navigating around. however, i don't think we can park it there. it might get clamped! i don't know what to call him now. sir patrick moore... john culshaw, thank you so much! also victor and alex! you keep it.
8:53 am
applause. you can keep it! how much fun was that? would you please welcome to the stage, james veitch! applause. hi guys. i'm single. a few years ago i was on a dating website, guardian soulmates, have you heard of it? do you want to admit to that? i was doing ok. it was all right. then i was booted off. i got an e—mail that said we are writing to let you know that your dating profile breached our terms and conditions, and won't be visible to other users. it's not what you think it is. profile picture should not contain people other than yourself. i could not... this was the picture i was trying to make my profile picture. laughter.
8:54 am
they weren't actively hostile, so i think it was ok. i think i made them laugh. it's weird to talk about your dating life in front of people. it's not something normal people do. i was annoyed with them for having given me the runaround. i had a bit of spare time. so what i did was i sent them letter. from the duck. laughter. "it has come to my attention james veitch has been using my image without my permission!" my comedy is about technology, really. i've always been fond of gadgets. i think it is nice. it's fun to be chatting in the green room. i've literally no idea, i'm just saying words. but i like it and i like all the people around me being geeky. it's refreshing. one girl sent a message and said, how is he taking
8:55 am
the picture, he's got no arms! that's your issue with this? applause. thank you james! please welcome to the stage, stephen mcneil and rob shakespeare! applause. so, you tour the country playing group video games. how on earth did that come about and why didn't i think of it? i'm lucky i got there first. about three years ago i started doing a live video game show. up in edinburgh, the fringe festival is a long month, so we thought if we got our friends really drunk and got them to swear at each other while they play video games, we could charge scottish people to watch it. you're laughing, but that turned out to be far more successful than the jokes i've written for five years! that's now a tv show.
8:56 am
rob, the sexy genius in the red shirt, he was technical manager on the tv show, but also invented this technology which you will hopefully look into, which allows everybody to play along with us. either it's going to be amazing or they are going to watch me have a breakdown because it won't work. while i panic at the laptop. two men screaming or celebrating. you've broken records, haven't you? rob's broken a record. a proper record. it was on our programme as well. we had our residency where we develop all the new stuff. rob broke the record for the number of people to play a single game of pong. it's a life wasted. it's what he's chosen to do. it was awesome. shall we do it? i hope so, i don't know if it's going to work! if we get no reaction, my wife was right and i am a failure.
8:57 am
on kate's team, you're the blue team. this side, spencer you are the red team. do that quickly if you haven't. one, two, three! you should now get those buttons. you get an up and a down. i would recommend up for spencer's team. you get a freebie. that's ok. i'd like to see the blue one move. yes, it moved. first to five points wins. you are annoyingly good at the game. i'm very excited because normally are not allowed out of the house. they are going to lose their minds, it's going to be awesome. work together. that's better. oh my goodness me, that's fast! keep playing!
8:58 am
one more point will do it! you aren't even looking! a single point for spencer. it's a victory for the red team! applause. i'm exhausted! thank you so much for coming. goodbye, and get out of here! applause. can you see the sweat? this is the most work i've done in a long time! it was brilliant! the game was quite exciting at the end! i like to be going on mars bit. this is bbc news, i'm gavin esler. the headlines at 9am. at least 39 people have been killed after a gunman opened fire in a packed nightclub in the turkish city of istanbul. the terrorists first shot and killed
8:59 am
a police officer at the front and then he fired at people in the menu who were only there to have fun on new year's eve. this is the scene live. turkish authorities say the gunman is still at large. here, heightened security and thousands of extra police as revellers welcome in the new year across the uk. in her new year's message theresa may calls for 2017 to be a year of unity following the vote to leave the eu. as we face the opportunities ahead of us, our shared interests and ambitions can bring us together. also in the next hour,
