12:31 pm
first click live. we are filmimg in front of a studio audience of 250 people. we have eight amazing tech demos that haven't been demonstrated in this way before. it's going to be fun, it's going to 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? 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 atv unpredictable things you can get in a tv recording environment. is there anybody there? well, that was interesting. hello? hello? can you
12:32 pm
see me? 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! i just wa nted our very first click live! i just wanted to check who has heard of us, who has seen us on the tv? brilliant. that is more viewers than i thought we had! who haven't seen
12:33 pm
as before but thought that came along? yeah! brilliant! who thought they were coming to a recording of 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 mind is tonight. the first thing we may notice is between you and me, there is a very strange transparent screen. i'm not sure if that's your protection or mind. 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! physical contact doesn't usually happen! can we run
12:34 pm
the next holographic demo? let's see what we've got. 0k! right now, we are ina what we've got. 0k! right now, we are in a holographic fish tank. what we've got. 0k! right now, we are in a holographic fish tanklj don't are in a holographic fish tank.|j don't like the way it's looking at me! i'm just don't like the way it's looking at me! i'mjust going don't like the way it's looking at me! i'm just going to. .. don't like the way it's looking at me! i'mjust going to... laughter i'm going to get some volunteers up. he 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 so, this is not actually a hologram, is it? talked a lot about the technology. it's not a hologram in
12:35 pm
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 activated 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. we have pulled out all the stops to bring you several superstar guests live by hologram. we are going to oui’ live by hologram. we are going to our first guest. live by hologram. we are going to ourfirst guest. are live by hologram. we are going to our first guest. are you there, obi—wan kenobi? our first guest. are you there, obi-wan kenobi? hello my friend. and
12:36 pm
all of those at the click academy. now we are going to make a very special call to the doctor. are you there? yes, i am here in a sense but it'sjust that you there? yes, i am 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? is he now making stuff up? ok! please welcome to the stage, the president—elect donald trump! 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 hologram is so the mexicans can walk straight through it. laughter police
12:37 pm
say a huge thank you to one of the greatest impressionistjohn culshaw! applause our next team are changing lives. welcome to the stage professor b and his team from imperial college london! we are not showing things that are... we are showing our current development. there is or is up current development. there is or is up and downs in terms of getting it running together, there's definitely some nerves involved in that on the stage. we from the bioelectronics 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. this is a robotic hand. chris is manipulating that robotic
12:38 pm
hand but he's actually using this device here, which is listening to him flexing his muscles. yes, actually at listening to him. if chris was missing a hand on 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 of the table in the dress rehearsal but hopefully that 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 allows you to control brings through
12:39 pm
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, but 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 and rebel against one another. it produces something we can pick up. his muscle fibres are moving ever so 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. james is going to play a game for us. he's sporting a nice 1970s look,
12:40 pm
a p pa re ntly sporting a nice 1970s look, apparently he's got legwarmers under hisjeans! 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 pasalic stuff. 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 brings 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 have a man who couldn't move or speak because he was locked in, playing a video game by blinking his eyes. that's what
12:41 pm
they are hoping to move towards. james, you are blinking good at this game, can! 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 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! applause we all love fairy animals, nice, fluffy fairy animals. sometimes technology can be responsible for helping our feathered and ferry
12:42 pm
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. they measure how excited oi’ wristbands. 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 be taking part in an experiment to see how excited they've got. you've worked with lady gaga. why
12:43 pm
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 up 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 be emotional pulses. if it's blue, you are feeling strong
12:44 pm
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's jet per polls in laboratory! ! —— jet per polls in laboratory! ! —— jet per polls in laboratory! ! —— jet per and. applause alex, we also need some martian astronauts. we've got three martian ashkelon. 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 the most accurate 3—d 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
12:45 pm
kate's point of view you are seeing. this isn't cgi, these are real photographic images stitched together in a 3—d 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 3—d world and compressing it into 2—d and distorting it and losing information. around four processor oui’ information. around four processor 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 nasser. run the video and tell us why on earth would you give hollow lends to astronauts because they are already there doing the call stuff? nasa is trying to send
12:46 pm
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, medical, automobile. the thing it is most tangible with is party planning or building your
12:47 pm
own space, your own is party planning or building your own space, your own house, 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 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 the march 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 oui’ right now we are using it on many of our missions, 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
12:48 pm
go. i have to come onto the stage and have a go with the hollow lends. i've always wanted to look at mars! applause my applause 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! john culshaw, thank you s0 get clamped! john culshaw, thank you so much! also victor and alex! applause you can keep it! how much fun was that? would you please welcome to the stage, james veitch! applause
12:49 pm
i'm single. a few years ago i was on a dating website, guardian soul mates, have you heard of it? do you wa nt to mates, have you heard of it? do you want to admit to that? i was doing 0k. it 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 you're dating profile breached oui’ that you're dating profile breached our terms and conditions and won't be visible to other users. 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 they weren't actively hostile so i think it was ok. i think i make them laugh. it's weird to talk about your dating life in front of people. it's not something normal people do. i
12:50 pm
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 dock. 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 a lwa ys 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 said the message and said, how is he taking the picture, he's got no arms! that's your issue with this? applause thank you james! please welcome to
12:51 pm
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? about three years ago i started doing live video game show. up started doing live video game show. up in edinburgh at 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 people to watch it. you're laughing but that turned out to be far more successful than the jokes which written for five years! that's now a tv show. robb, the sexy genius in the red shirt, he was
12:52 pm
technical manager on the tv show but also invented this technology which you will hopefully looked into which allows everybody to play along with us. 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 panicked at the laptop. you've broken record, haven't you? rob 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 was awesome. shall we do it? i hope so, i don't know if it's going to work it! if we get no reaction my wife was right andi get no reaction my wife was right and i am get no reaction my wife was right andiama get no reaction my wife was right and i am a failure. on kate's team, you're the blue team. this side, you are the red team. one, two, three!
12:53 pm
you should now get those buttons. you should now get those buttons. you get an up and they down ra. i would recommend up for spencer's team. you get a freebie. that's ok. would like to see the blue one move. yes, it moved. first 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! 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
12:54 pm
i'm exhausted! thank you so much for coming. goodbye and get out of here! applause this is the most work i've done in a long time! it was brilliant! the game was quite exciting abbey and! —— at the end. hello, the last day of 2016 and it's looking cloudy and damp for the majority of the country with limited spells of brightness. some really nice foggy picture is emerging from our weather watchers like this one here. spots of light rain through central southern areas. the best of
