the company are keen for to me good afternoon. to take on to experience this from the inside, three cabinet ministers have scotland are in paris to take on france who are yet to win in this and so am i. so in order to try the device, publicly warned for the first time that brexit should be delayed if mps yea r‘s i need to be measured for it. france who are yet to win in this year's competition france who are yet to win in this yea r‘s competition but france who are yet to win in this year's competition but if anyone knows how difficult it is too when don't approve the prime minster‘s these measurements are essential deal in the coming days. it is scotland as their last victory to calculate the recommended gait in a newspaper article, for someone of my height and weight. the work and pensions secretary, it is a heavy computing task, amber rudd, thejustice secretary, so calculations are actually done david gauke, and the business secretary, greg clark, came years ago and scotland went on on a server outside the suit. to win the championship that year. say that time is running out the results are then the players cannot look at the big sent to the exoskeleton. and that leaving without a deal there's also a surprising would be disastrous. picture too much so coming to paris amount of computing going on downing street insists theresa may inside the device. as well as the basic form of motion, is working hard to secure a deal. how it should behave, is an incredible stadium, we have the exo can make its own decisions played some good stuff over the adding that first two games but there have been so if something unexpected happens — some inconsistencies in there as say, my foot hits the ground too well so it is a big opportunity for late or if someone pushes it — it works out how to respond. us well so it is a big opportunity for us under the guys are desperate to get going. lean forward, and push up. scotland's women are also whoa. playing in france — and you can watch it live on the bbc red button tonight. that's. .. before that ireland play italy that's amazing. with the build up starting at 20 past six ahead of kick off i can even lean sideways and crouch. at a quarter to seven. i can also change the direction i move in by leaning my body burnley are helping to make it eight whilst walking. i'm going to aim towards the right. games unbeaten as they host spurs, they are kicking off right now. oh, i can feel it going that way.
12:31 pm
their captain is back from injury to the start—up has grown to around 50 employees, many motivated by family members start earlier than expected. also who are or will soon be todayis start earlier than expected. also unable to walk. today is little later on, bournemouth are up against wolves on so one of the key things the south coast. newcastle play we are working on at the moment is allowing stroke patients to get inside the exo huddersfield and at half five to and retrain their walk with the exo. leicester city against crystal palace. at 71 the palace manager roy they slowly regain their ability hodgson is the oldest in the league. to move so you've got to tune the exo down in the assistance he has been saying it will be hard it brings over time. to retire one day. when the day the company clearly has ambitions beyond this, comes i hope i will know it, i will its first exoskeleton, and floriane is looking forward feel it enable take the opportunity to shaping its future. to move away gracefully at that moment in time. then i hope i will have enough wits about me to dampen my passion and deep feeling for the game and learn to live without it. there's a familiar line up, for the women's league cup final, in sheffield this afternoon. either arsenal or manchester city have won the cup, in every
12:32 pm
season since it began, and it's a repeat of last year's brilliant. final at bramall lane, that was lj rich in paris. which arsenal won. now, during our christmas with almost 20 minutes the score is special last year, we show you the first hands—on all this. chris eubank says he's with the new flexible phone. petrified of his son losing his big fight tonight, against james degale. it's a crucial career fight, created by chinese firm, royole, for 33—year—old degale, who is a two—time world champion its first phone has been and olympic gold medallist, five years in the making. at super middleweight, while chris eubankjunior has yet to break into the sport's elite. one of its tricks is to unfold, de gale, says the loser, creating a tablet. will have to retire. back injanuary, i caught up with the firm's boss, bill liu, and asked him how he'd managed to beat the likes of samsung and lg to create the world's first bendable phone. we focused on the flexpai display because it's so hard, it's so difficult to make it happen. for me i do not let the occasion, from the technology the trash talk, the hype, i do not innovation point of view, you have to do a lot of innovations letter to effect my main site. from the fundamental materials, —— i do not let it process, device designs, certain design affect my mindset. and then later product design, i thinkjames does and it is a get closer he will get edgy and rattled. so that is why we invested for me, stay focused $1.7 billion in shenzhen, china, and professional, state dangerous. that's all the sport for now. to build up the 11.5 million square feet production facility for the mass production of the flexpai display. this week, flashy folding phones.
12:33 pm
but i'd love to know whether the main problems are the fact that fashion face—off. the connections break or the main problem is that and fantastic physio. you can't get the colours right on the bendy bit as the other bit or obviously you need for replacement glass — you can't have glass. the most challenging part is you have to manufacture millions of transistors, tiny circuits on top of the super thin flexible film, and the film is only several micrometres. it is thinner than our hair diameter, and it has to be very, very precise positioning. back in 2016, we visited the cybathlon in zurich, at the moment, the royole flexpai a competition where people is only available to buy in china but they're not the only with limited mobility competed against each other with some ones going bendy. of the most sophisticated take a look at this tablet that physical augmentation folds twice to create a phone. devices on the planet. 0n trial were robotic arms, robotic its makers, xiaomi, say it is only an engineering model prosthetics and exoskeletons, at the moment, though. all being used to tackle some the most challenging tasks faced another chinese firm, lenovo, by people with disabilities. has also previously teased that and a couple of years ago, it's working on a similar product. we saw an exoskeleton for royole, though, this isn'tjust helping workers to lift heavy items about wearables and phones.
12:34 pm
at an american hardware store. royole's vision is that flexible and now, one company in france electronics will change the way we interact with the smart home is using the tech to rehabilitate and give paraplegic patients and technology generally. a chance to walk again. that is the age of internet of things, so flexible displays, lj rich went to visit. flexible sensors, flexible electronics, break the limitation of the phone factor, of the surface. eventually, all of these things will be smart, will be intelligent. that is where we see the flexible display‘s future. now we've heard rumours of samsung making a flexible phone for some time and this week, we finally got our answer at their latest launch. here's jen copestake. in a big surprise, samsung not only unveiled a folding phone floriane has tried several exos keleto ns, but announced it would go on sale but liked this one so much, in two months‘ time, at a staggering cost she is now working for the company. ofjust under $2,000. called the galaxy fold, the phone opens up to make a 7.3—inch tablet display it's a practically hands—free exo
12:35 pm
so, as well as walking, capable of running she can do this... three apps at once. it includes a new type of hidden hinge, which they say can handle thousands of folds and unfolds, the device aims to improve movement for people with total with a battery on each side to extend running time. or partial paralysis and, after 18 months of trials, the eye—watering price seems the latest version is finally ready to sell unusual, if not risky, to rehabilitation centres. considering the company said the cost of its s9 phones had led to lower—than—expected sales. the design that we are trying is about 6—7 years of work, but they say this is a luxury item, and they are hoping to release and a new category of device. a personal exo in a couple of years also launched were the s10 series phones, the mid—range x10, or so, and that is currently secret. cheaper s10e and the s10 plus. it's behind me. i might take a peek. each new model of phone comes with a super—wide camera so you can get 123 degrees of vision, yep. basically the same as a human eye, oh, yes. if you want that. the camera also allows you to use some artificial intelligence capabilities to improve the way you take photos. this small remote you can still unlock the phone activates the suit. with facial recognition, leaning forward at the right speed and angle activates an accelerometer but samsung have done away on the back. with the iris scanner and they say this was to maximise the end—to—end display,
12:36 pm
this starts the system walking. which seems to be all the rage these days. the more you use it, is it becoming easier or was it easy straightaway? the screen is maximised with a hole—punch camera and features a new security option. in—screen fingerprint sensors it is easy, because we have are becoming more and more popular and samsung says they have got no pain, not fatigued, something unique called an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. and it's better for my arms it's different to a and shoulders because typical optical sensor, we have no crutches. which takes a photograph of your thumb. instead, it measures the contours of your thumb. they say this will make it even more secure against spoofing, so it's not possible for someone to take a photocopy of your thumb and use it to open your device. one more surprise was the unveiling of samsung's 5g—ready phone. we didn't get a price, but we can guess it won't be cheap. a 5g—ready phone might give samsung a strategicjump on competitors, like apple, but with widespread roll—out of the network not expected any time soon, they probably won't be flying off the shelves. of course, we're going to be hearing much more about 5g and all kinds of other phones
12:37 pm
next week, when click is at mobile world congress, in barcelona. hello, and welcome to the week in tech. it was the week that politicians in the uk branded facebook "digital gangsters", in a report into fake news. the culture media and sport committee accused the company of obstructing its enquiry and failing to tackle russian interference in elections. facebook said it has already made changes, while mark zuckerberg is to meet the uk culture secretary. meanwhile microsoft said it has discovered hacking attempts against democratic institutions, think tanks and non—profit organisations, across europe. it's offered its tailored cyber security services to affected countries. and google admitted making an error in not revealing that one of its home alarm systems contained a microphone. it was only revealed when an update was announced to make the nest guard devices voice—controlled. remember the self—lacing smartphone—controlled shoes from nike?
12:38 pm
well, just days after launch, updates to the app for android users have stopped the smart capabilities from working. firmware updates, bricking shoes — what a time to be alive. drivers in australia will soon to be able to make their licence plates a little more exciting, thanks to emojis. it was announced this week that from the 1st of march, they will be allowed to add one of five emojis to their registration. insert eye roll here. and finally, we all know that you should never leave dogs in hot cars, so car maker tesla has introduced dog mode to its vehicles. when enabled, it will regulate the air—conditioning as well as displaying a message on the car's dashboard letting passer—by know that the dog's human and will be back soon. it's all very well seeing what cloths look like on a model, but if you can't get your hands on them in the flesh then you probably want to know what they are going to look like on you. well, at this year's london fashion week, thanks to some new technology,
12:39 pm
that's exactly what some members of the public are going to be able to experience. seeing themselves model some apparel from clothing brand hanger. here at london college of fashion the perfect setup is being created. the lighting's right, the scene is right, this is where 50 participants have come to have their faces scanned, so that their image can replace that of the model's on the catwalk to see what the clothes would actually look like on them. so naturally i wanted a go, too. firstly, i had to tie my hair back, though, which, i have to admit, did instantly stop me from feeling like me. and i'm not meant to talk. using super personal‘s face swap technology is speedy and simple, although it helps to have a willing volunteer to actually scan you. the results are broken down by neural networks that understand each little movement to be able to recreate your face
12:40 pm
on a believable moving image. it was important for us that the process was very simple. so it only takes 10—15 seconds to actually go through the registration. and also the results come faster — the whole processing takes only 30 minutes right now. but of course, we all come in different shapes and sizes, so the app needs to cater for that. i am certainly not the build of a catwalk model. for this project, only a few models‘ figures have been tracked. so it will choose the one closest to me or the other volunteers, although the eventual aim is to create accurate avatars based on any measurements. this is pretty impressive. the quality of the image, even when moving, really is so realistic. but the thing that really seems odd to me isn't the fact that i am wearing clothes i would never normally put on,
12:41 pm
but it's the way i'm moving. i can tell that's not my body language and they're not my mannerisms. and that's making it really quite peculiar to watch. we believe that this technology is very useful for online shopping, for users to see how they look in different clothes, especially for clothes that they'd never dare to wear or they want to just see how they would look in something a bit different. but also how they would look on something very classic, that they've never tried wearing, and generally exploring more options. and whilst i can totally see the benefits, i wasn't quite convinced on this change of image. vidcon 2019! whoo! yeah! last weekend the world's largest convention for online video makers, vidcom, was held in london, for the first time. and it was crammed full of social media stars. to give us a taste of the event, here's your guide,
12:42 pm
youtuber, savan gandecha. hi, i'm savan, and i run a youtube channel called savanfilms. the videos i post focus a lot about my autism and my experiences. hey, everyone, and welcome to a brand new autism vlog series. when i tell people i have autism most people are surprised, because apparently i don't look like someone who has it. there's no look. what do you feel is the correct way to talk about someone having autism? treat me the same as any person you would treat, as a human being. so i've been waiting for vidcon london to come to the uk since last year. i was really excited to come and see my friends, meet other creators, potentially collaborate with them in future. it's a lot of fun in general. i've always wanted something like this. it's a space where content creators
12:43 pm
can find out about the latest tools to make videos and test them out. hey, everyone, and welcome to savanfilms and also welcome to bbc click. most of the vendors here know that if you want to attract this crowd set up an instagram—worthy photo opp. i'm going to try this. i have always been the creative type, even though that in the past, that's been like suppressed. i see youtube as a hobby, but also i see it as an outlet to create what i want to create. i feel that it's allowed me to be open to the world about what i have. vidcon is also where the fans can meet the people they follow online. many of the social media stars here have hundreds of thousands of followers. hello there, and let me be the first to say welcome back. why are you talking like that?
12:44 pm
i am with my good friend dean dobbs, he's a content creator on youtube. he's part of a comedy duo called jack & dean. how many subscribers do you have? i don't know exact. almost about 700,000. something like that. i put it in, there you go. no worries. it's really crazy, though. there are tons of people who come here. it's crazy because i have to, like, try and be the best version of myself all the time. because, you know, i wouldn't have any of this if it wasn't for people, invisible people on an internet computer watching it. so it is a pretty great thing. it feels more like i belong here. they treat me like a creator, a professional who's actually doing things. despite circumstances i have at the moment, i am trying my absolute best to do things. while i'm happy to be here, it also presents some challenges, being autistic. with my autism it can be very overwhelming. just so much sensory process, various different noises, smells, brightness.
12:45 pm
hello, lovely people... so i ‘vejust metjessica. you are? a disabled youtuber. youtuber we well. indeed. my channel's all about how you can live a fun and fabulous and happy life despite having disabilities and chronic illness, and deafness — all that kind of thing. pointing out that i don't sound deaf is probably the first thing that most people do when i meet them. the media world can seem quite difficult to break into, especially for disabled people. if you have a chronic illness, how are you going to start as a runner and build your way up to doing something? whereas when you're a youtuber you're straight in there. first day you're making a video and you're putting it out there. we have become more open about our issues. the millennium generation grew up with the tech and we mastered it, to an extent, and the next generation is doing a betterjob,
12:46 pm
sometimes. i'll be happy learning new stuff and learning new tech and everything. so that's a rap on vidcon london. hope you guys enjoyed watching. take care, guys, and sav out. thanks, sav. brilliant stuff, that's savan gandecha. now, over the last few weeks, we've been chatting to the visual effects artists behind some of our favourite films of the last year. with the academy awards now upon us, what better way to finish off the series than with a look at the oscar—nominated first man. do you question whether the programme is worth the cost — in money and in lives? what are the chances of you not coming back? it's always tricky. i guess, as a visual effects artist you want your work to be seen. but for something like this, where it's documentary style, it really needs to fit with how the rest of the footage is shot. paul lambert, i worked with him on blade runner. he was invited down to meet with damien chazelle to talk over the show first man.
12:47 pm
and once they decided on trying to keep things in camera, paul brought me on board to try to work out what is the best way to do this. paul came up with the idea of having a giant led screen. we'd get the footage ready, let's say, for the x—15 sequences. get that footage running well. damien wanted it to run as a full sequence, so it was something like 10,000 frames. we ended up using a terragen for the x—15 cloud sequence. i guess it simulates how light reacts in an earth environment, when you're up at the top section of the atmosphere. just as neil bounces off the atmosphere, you get that nice blue line of the horizon, which is mathematically correct for the earth's atmosphere. so it was fantastic for us to be able to use that. because we had the real—world numbers of his flight path and how high he went. so when you are looking through it, that is probably pretty close to what he saw when he was up there.
12:48 pm
we have serious problems. the special effects guys, jd schwam and his team, they had the gimbal motion base. they worked out a way so when the gimbal tilted forward, you can have the correct movement on the screen as well. for certain scenes it was almost like being in a simulator. so the actors got something to work with as well. rather than having a green screen, i suppose, and saying you're diving down towards the earth now, give us a reaction, he's actually there, he's in it and he's tilting forward in it. when you're sat there it actually feels like you're in the plane going down. so nasa gave us access to a lot of archival footage from the apollo programme. so we scoured through most of that. there were a couple of things in there which i don't think have been seen before. there's one in particular which is a sort of mid—shot of the second fired rocket. it's got the blast—off. it's obviously shot at a square aspect ratio.
12:49 pm
we had to expand the sides — left and right — with a rocket thrust, which was quite intricate. it actually came together pretty quickly, once we had the simulation working right, and we just had to match the lighting and the look to the main footage. the main footage in the middle stayed as it was. we ran it through our archival processing set up and then blended it with the cg at the edges. that shot was a great shot to work on and see come together. that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. wow. brilliant. and we wish the team behind first man and all the other 0scar nominees the very best of luck for this weekend's ceremony. that is it for us for this weekend. we are at the mobile world congress in barcelona next weekend. in the meantime, you can follow us on social media. we live on facebook, youtube, instagram, and twitter — @bbcclick. thanks for watching
12:50 pm
and we'll see you soon. hello. it has been quite a mixed picture to start the day today. many of us had a bright start. earlier, we saw beautiful sunrise in argyll and bute, the rising sun illuminating the cloud. to the west, a weak weather front has been working its way across northern ireland, into western scotland.
12:51 pm
in the south, dense patches of fog causing a few problems on the road. some cancellations for flights at london city airport. the milky weather is taking the time to clear and lift across south—eastern england. the sun comes up for most of us. the weather clearing in northern ireland, but a bit of rain for scotland. for most of us, dry and bright day, with sunshine, and one for the time of year. temperatures could reach 18 celsius in the south. to put it in context, that is around nine or 10 degrees above normal for the time of year. it is the kind of temperatures we would normally expect in late may, not late february. the six nations rugby is on, france hosting scotland in france, and while hosting england in cardiff. the weather looks similar for both matches. dry with sunshine, temperatures around 1a celsius at kick—off. 0vernight, though it may start cold, we will see cloud moving in, sub—mist and fog
12:52 pm
patches as well. 2—5 celsius in towns and cities, colder in this countryside, a few patches of dan mike frost. though sunday starts off on a cold note, the wins , a few patches of frost. plenty of sunshine for scotland, england and wales, and clear blue skies for many through the afternoon. northern ireland may hold onto more cloud top temperatures still mild, 11—16 celsius. a shade down on what we will have this afternoon. on monday, high pressure stays in place for most of the uk, a weak weather front bringing rain across parts of the hebrides, highland scotland, 0rkney and shetland. away from the far north, and sunny day. it stays on the mild side, though temperatures are drifting down a little.
