"Like to go behind the headlines see where the future is headed and this week we're gonna start with SpaceX a company that has been very very busy lately about a week ago a SpaceX falcon nine rocket successfully propel two astronauts to the international space station then days later a second falcon nine watch this time to put additional starlink satellites into orbit now if you recall the starlink satellites are being launched to form this constellation for providing high speed internet around the world particularly in underserved areas just fascinating to me that they're able to figure all this out and this past week SpaceX put another sixty into low orbit that brings the current number up to four hundred and eighty almost five hundred new satellite sounds like a lot right SpaceX already has permission to launch a total of twelve thousand when all is said and done that number could be closer to forty two thousand in orbit that's not counting Amazon and Google because they have their own plans to develop this internet based satellite service and it's no surprise that because there's billions of dollars to be made in satellite internet and there's a lot of space to work for it so forget the big dipper one day all you'll see are constellations of twinkling satellites that look like Ilan musk Jeff Bezos and Tim cook and speaking of fast internet the long awaited five G. mobile network is finally becoming more widespread across the globe now five G. tech is being built into more more devices like smartphones but it's really meant to usher in incredibly fast internet speeds and a real internet of things and it would be nice as a bonus of five G. was a big drain on the battery well that's the goal of research is being done right now is being funded by the U. S. army research from the university of Texas at Austin and a university in France are working on a project to improve the performance batteries in five G. phones by up to fifty percent see what our phone has to switch between five G. to four G. wifi LTE whatever based on where you're located as you might guess that takes energy and for five G. it's locked until the whole idea is that a radio frequency switching system that uses nano materials as way to make the process use less energy so the army's interests is get the tech built into various equipment that the soldiers are gonna be using the feel the like radios are some text sensor it's making progress in by the way just one which no five G. doesn't spread corona virus and what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and it's also going to make your phone battery last a lot longer but speaking of five G. conspiracy theories while some people still believe that it spreads corona viruses been really bad over the U. K. where some of these loans have taken to setting five G. towers are on fire over the past couple months telecom engineers have even been physically assaulted it's really bad some of these idiots have tried to run over telecom employees and in one case an engineer was strapped for cash and now they're making the situation even more generous dangerous rather up some of these conspiracy theorists who should now be referred to as really criminals they're setting booby traps on five G. equipment hurt the engineers that are working on the technology that are working on the towers I'm talking about needles and razor blades being left hidden behind posters on phone Matt so these unsuspecting telecom workers will be hurt while trying to keep the networks up and running now since March have already been about two hundred cases of abuse against these workers are out again everybody knows it's not possible for radio waves to transmit viruses and the only virus that you have to worry about your five G. towers are these criminals themselves and as far as code nineteen goes you know it's very real as cases continue to spread across the US in the world and even though many offices are re opening it's going to be a very different experience with new policies and procedures in place and mandatory temperature checks were working on the plan to bring everybody back to the studios and I can tell it's it's not easy it's pretty tough and there's been a run on certain products throughout this whole pandemic including thermometers which has led to some new innovations I Chinese phone manufacturer has developed a brand new smartphone that doubles as a thermometer I'm sure you heard about while away his tech isn't exactly welcome the US because of the companies they say suspected ties with the Chinese government but anyway it has a sub series called honor which developed a phone called the play for pro no query to honor it has a built in sensor that can read a person's temperature when it's held up to a restore face and supposedly accurate down to the tenth of a degree I'd be pretty surprised this one makes it to the US because as long as there's a chance that the these devices are accessible by the Chinese government it's our way or the wow way and finally as the saying goes the show must go on talking about the Consumer Electronics Show it's huge event that's held every January in Las Vegas and now they've announced plans for next year's event and like the others there are plans to let all the exhibitor show off track in the digital setting but also physically it seems like they've kept the announcement pretty loud since no one really noticed it was posted on our website back on may seventh but the group promises that health precautions will be in place lots of cleaning sanitizing social distancing rules temperature checks but the question is will anybody really want to go right no doubt the event organisers went back a lot of people go last year a hundred and seventy five thousand people attended wow think about all the airlines the ubers that caps the gambling the hotels the meals the drinks a lot of money and a nearly one billion dollar expansion to the Las Vegas convention centers nearly died zoom is gonna do a lot of those upgrades justice so even if everything goes as planned I really don't know how C.

has places in Texas or not I'm assuming that he does I'm not sure where has started I think he has some some places in Texas but yeah he's praising Texas with the fact that there I I hope that they're relaxing their staff you know I know that you know the bar kid when our oldest kids lives in Texas and she's like things are starting to let up a little bit here now she was she knew a couple people that last week some of her friends were like driving to places in Oklahoma to get their nails done hair done yeah but they're starting to let up places now and and like Dallas in places so I you know I don't know this is the thing that quote I question now is like if you're able to drive across the state line to to get something like your hair done your nails side or to do whatever service I'm just throwing those right right apples don't you think that that's kind of weird yeah it's weird weird it doesn't make any sense and neither do any of these restrictions anymore on off already yeah it's it's just bizarre I'll be darned and of course we're going to get to like everyone's new hero not in this segment but in the next seven case where to play the entire clip of it at nine thirty and there's one business owner who's probably as much if not more fed up than even Ilan musk and we'll get to him in just a little bit but first we mentioned earlier in the week you know there's been all these rumors what starting last week about where in the world is Kim Jong moon and for that matter where in the world is Andrea Tantaros on those you guys don't know no we're we've heard what yesterday they were saying there was and tell it not intelligence that somebody was saying that he that can jog and may in fact be holed up in a hotel like a luxury hotel that they had like heat seeking sensors that we're we're saying maybe the hotel he's trying not to get coronavirus which is weird because it's so we heard happened because we heard that there was no friend of ours and north anyway there's no case yeah and I mean when that suggests that he's not in fact telling the truth and that wouldn't be I mean that is so weird that's not like him at all but now Taiwan's intelligence chief says that Kim Jong moon is quote sick okay that's the latest yeah K. six and five days ago was he was dead right I mean that's an improvement yeah it's six seems to be an improvement from dad yeah so that's something you know in the country apparently has emergency plans for a potential power struggle if he does in fact die the director of the national security bureau a guy by the name of Q. kuo Chang both to quote Chang yeah to quote saying that person gave China right now give a vague health description when pressed at a government hearing about these rumors have been floating around about Kim Jong moon being dead and he kinda laughed and then didn't really answer he just said my answers from the intelligence it's available it's not an opinion from what we know he is still in charge in control of north Korea's military and its government so I mean I don't know so the power struggle would be between what a sister and a couple other dudes there is that what we assume who knows I mean that countries so back in it's just very very hard to know in other news Andrew Cuomo is saying out loud he was on a radio show and he said that he is single and ready to mingle he and

back is not sure how to say it sent email to everybody on Wednesday because they laid off a whole bunch of people the cut at least a hundred employees and he sent like a big letter saying this has really been a challenge at times but it also but included top exacts which you never really see yeah that's unusual I don't know what their what do they call those plans when executives leave and they get the big giant parachute the goal the goal yeah so who knows I have no idea what that what that transition is gonna look like but they you know he's trying to say all the right things the fact remains it's been really really tough for media in fact the New York Post publisher told their staff that businesses being drastically disrupted by the virus they're announcing layoffs as well and in fact one of the staffers who was laid off sad this paper is dying yeah I I think a lot of them are I mean there's a lot of them are and this is not helping no this is not helping and you know this is of course in the wake of the news that we got yesterday the thirty million people are now unemployed yeah thirty million people and when I heard the government stay stuff like listen we're just gonna snap back we're just gonna snap right back it's fine a lot of places want places will never recover from this they're just gonna they're gonna be gone so just keep that in mind everybody is there will

California governor provides update on coronavirus
"Fourteen I'm hearing of the USS mercy and they just arrived here at what we refer to as the state operations center where I'm currently filming this Facebook live the team is not only simple here they've assembled the USS mercy it's on its way to Los Angeles and will be arriving this Friday and as early as this weekend it will be available to pick up individuals that we deem prioritize an appropriate to be taken care of and supported on the chip by just got to say it's a reminder when you meet these young men and women how extraordinarily blessed we are U. S. navy when you meet highs and young men and women how extraordinarily blessed we are the U. S. navy and those that are working to get the USS mercy here in California I have done a remarkable job to turn around a very short period of time eleven hundred crew on that ship and we're now in the process of determining exactly which type of decompression strategies that will work and what I mean by that is to decompress the rest of the system by providing support on board that ship so that we can ultimately advance our protocols and procedures to get people in more appropriate care and more appropriate settings and so that's the purpose of the conversation we just had the conversations that are occurring quite literally in real time behind me but we're very very enthusiastic that that ship will be coming apart as early as this Friday accordingly we advanced a number of actions today particularly on the issue of prisons and the state I did an executive order today as it relates to the intake processing both at C. D. C. R. I. California state correction system and DJ J. R. juvenile division in order to address the legitimate anxieties and concerns related to prisoners and to make sure that we have our procedures and protocols in place to protect staff as well as inmates from covert nineteen as you know we have one official tested positive inmate we have five staff members currently we are going to restrict the intake process in the system and we are putting together new a protocols and procedures and throughout that system thirty five presence to make sure that we are isolated people were not mixing our prison populations as we tend to do transfers and the like on a typical basis so the executive order a reinforced the guidelines or procedures and protocols that were now advancing both for DJJ and C. C. R. in addition to that something's very familiar to me and weekly basis I review personally the recommendations of our parole board for people that are eligible for parole in each and every circumstance when people are made eligible to go through a very formal process of interviews and reviews that's done in person because of the nature of this virus the nature of this moment we're going to be changing procedures and protocols and in the executive order we lay out a strategy to begin the process of doing a video conferences this would be a temporary advancement but under the circumstances in terms of our isolation strategies in order to continue the processing of people that are eligible for parole in the encouragement to make sure that that process happens the scale it's been happening in the past we think it's appropriate to move forward with those teleconferences in that executive order lays out strategies to do just that and so those orders will be in effect the artifact media at Lee and the protocols the procedures are in effect in real time and we could talk more about that in the coming days as we look not just to the state prison population but the county jail population as well in addition to that we had remarkable Dave conversations with the army corps of engineers they are now stationed just right outside our stock here at the emergency operation centers we have three divisions throughout the state of California and they've been working with our state leadership National Guard others within our respective organizations to cite through a survey process the appropriate locations for potential support of army corps in addition to sites that we have identified through our federal medical program that we announced yesterday and the fact that we have two sides coming up one in riverside in Santa Clara we're looking additional sites in ways that the army corps can complement the work to get those sites fully operational insights convention facilities that's facilities large and small up and down the state fairgrounds and the like but we went through more detailed protocols and sharing expectations so that we can lay out exactly our expectations moving forward the army corps engineers moves quickly and we're very enthusiastic that that partnership is really taking shape over the course of last week and been advanced of the course last few hours in more meaningful ways edition that we had a wonderful news Sir Richard Branson virgin now partnering as Tim cook did Ilan musk at Tesla and SpaceX just another individual that stepped up virgin stepping up bring in a seven forty seven into the bay area and Oakland and we worked on the joysticks related to that for significant enhancement of personal protective gear will have more details on that the next day or two just another point of emphasis in other example an indication of people that are stepping up in a relic ways bringing that from Asia into the bay area to help support our efforts to help support one of the largest hospital systems Kaiser in that process we had the tragic loss of a lot a young life a teenager in Lancaster California which underscores the enormity of the challenge in front of us this health crisis and how it could impact anybody and everybody and I know it's sobering when you read the headlines so have I said a child but to be more precise a teenager a lost our lives and we are doing the investigation trying to understand more about exactly what occurred but covert related tragic loss of life as of ten AM this morning we've lost forty lives in the state of California related to covet nineteen we have lost over twenty one hundred or rather we have twenty one hundred positives state California twenty one hundred and two which is seventeen point five percent higher than the previous day again that's at ten AM number those numbers change in real time but a seventeen and a half percent increase and now a loss of a young person's life I want to just make a point Tampa size this and extend my heartfelt sympathies to the family and the community that have lost their loved one but also make this point young people can and will be impacted by this virus in fact young people disproportionately are the ones testing positive in the state of California fifty percent of the two thousand one hundred and two individuals that have tested positive fifty percent are between the age of eighteen and forty nine I'll repeat that half of those that have tested positive to date in the state of California eighteen to forty nine years old this disease impacts everybody the question is the acuity and the hospitalization rate that yes does skew on the side of older populations but with this tragic now death it is a reminder to everybody to take this seriously it's a health crisis it needs to be met first and foremost head on as such and that's why it is incumbent upon all Californians to continue to take our stay at home order seriously to continue to do the kind of social distancing that common sense dictates and heed the warnings we advanced yesterday to stay out of settings like beaches and parks where you're coming into close contact with others practice social distancing and we had to step up our enforcement yesterday as it relates to shut down those parking facilities a consequence to reinforce and remind people the series of moments but what more evidence do you need of a loss of a young person's life and so I just cannot impress upon the young people out there more the seriousness of this moment and how critical they are totally getting us on the other side by practicing that social distancing that we all are custom hearing but not in every case advancing individually by the way for those that are curious twenty six percent of individuals fifty to sixty four are represented in the twenty one hundred and two individuals that have been tested positive twenty three percent of all the other cases are represented in individual site north of sixty five years old hospitalization rates tend to skew higher and those cohorts but the number of positives again remains half eighteen to forty nine so broad strokes that's been up most of the day as it relates to operationalize in a lot of the work that we've been talking about the last number of days I had a number of conversations with governors across the country about protocols and procedures to better work collaborative Lee on procurement strategies we actually are lining up in linking together our procurement teams with other states to make sure that we're not competing with one another and we're making sure we are price conscience and dealing with the issue of price gouging up comparing best practices with state attorney generals are not just the work that the federal government's doing William Barr and others that we were pleased to hear announced yesterday so those are good conversations in those conversations we hope will be made real in terms of organizing a more deliberate and strategic way the procurement of the hundreds of millions of individual items that we need to procure and shields and gloves and gowns and coveralls and face masks and swabs and the like but we have testing numbers the testing has significantly increased across this country but also in the state of California tomorrow will be laid out the new numbers that we have received that will show a significant jump in the numbers we made public as we brought together all of these one off collection sites and all of the hospitals research universities that are participating as well as the private labs and will have a new process to collect those numbers in real time I had to make until like I think more comfort in numbers on the scale of testing is still not close to where we need to be we still need more swabs we still need more reagents these aren't extraction kits but we are seeing higher throughput and we're seeing new technologies coming up there were testing work with the FDA trump administration to get all the market one of his meeting with folks today that have a forty five minute test because the issue now is not just swabs in our extraction reagents it's about turning around the tests which are in some cases taking days and days and days some cases many of seven eight nine days and so we're gonna have to address the timeliness of the diagnostic and the test results as well again yeah because they have to iterate in this space as we moved from just public labs to those commercial quest and lab core now to needing specimen sample swabs in the media associated with that to now making sure we turn around the SAT test and a much quicker time but more on that tomorrow we also in closing I've done a lot on the ventilator side of things I mentioned yesterday the heroic work of Ilan musk came through on his promise to deliver over one thousand ventilators and that was announced yesterday we have brought in ourselves we just got another one thousand and ten ventilators are from the private sector working with managing others to convert that cash of five hundred fourteen ventilators that we had to refurbish them and to get them fully operational we have received from the federal government a no direct ventilators from the national stockpile Los Angeles county did receive one hundred and seventy and they have a unique relationship to the national stockpile but that's all we received within

M. meeting SpaceX added over two hundred and fifty new employees in two days representing a full doubling of the work force arstechnica visited the day after the major starship prototype implosion that made news earlier this week the S. N. one prototype blew up as a dress a direct result of weak welds it sounds like everyone involved knew this prototype was faulty and told musk so when he asked and he insists it was never designed to fly for real anyway where's flex tape when you needed to report he said it's worrying though because SpaceX is designing its factory there to build a starship every seventy two hours according to arstechnica this means its facility in Texas has to include huge wind breaks think of the enormous sky high a protective nets at some diving at driving ranges but solid in order to be able to safely stack the starships I think we need probably on the order of one thousand ships and each of the ships would have more payload than the Saturn five and be re usable according to what you lawn mosque wow seventy two hours he wants to build a starship you know I get the feeling when you lawn mosque jumps out of bed in the morning at his feet hit the floor the devil says oh darn he's op all right.
"ilan musk" Discussed on The Tech Guy
"Why it would be terrible to have a monoculture, especially in a place like New York of, of transportation, technology because imagine, you You know. often talk about security on the show and cybersecurity for vehicles is becoming much more much more of an issue something that everybody's much more aware of in the industry. And if you if someone if bad actors were to find a way to infiltrate the, the systems of an autonomous vehicle fleet, you know, get into through the network that manages the fleet my God. And you. Imagine a place like your hill to have, you know, a half a million vehicles, you know, that are Thomas that are all in the same fleet, if somebody found revolving ability and just suddenly commanded them to all turn left now. That would be a terrible thing you know it's going to happen. It probably will just see that in our future. It's something like that. There's, there's a chance that something like that will will eventually happen, which is why it's important to, to have just as nature. It's a it's a good thing to have some diversity in your transportation fleet. You wanna have lease several different companies that are involved using different technologies. And also, you know, again, going back to the example of New York, you don't want just autonomous cars driving around, because there are so many vehicles already in need to have a diverse mobility ecosystem, so you need a variety of different types of vehicles for different use cases. I mean you're gonna have delivery vehicles, and, you know, Ilan musk has been talking a lot lately about, you know, denigrating the, the idea of mass transit. You know, and promoting his boring company ideas, which I think, is, is stupid for, you know, for for moving people, I think, mass transit, in it would be better to invest in. Actually improving the mass transit. We rode the subway several times this week, and it actually worked really, well, you know, there are issues with it, of course, you know. But that's something that, you know, investing in, in more upkeep and maintenance of the system would be better. But where something like, what, what musk has been talking about what might actually be useful as having some tunnels and having automated vehicles for all the delivery vehicles, this pitcher over my shoulder, you can see all the trucks crazy all these trucks around your delivering to all these buildings and all these businesses if you if we had those if we had something underground get those trucks off the street and then had more reasonable sized vehicles on the on.
Is Telsa's Solar Business in Trouble?
"Some most people know tesla for the cars, right? They have electric cars the model S, which is beautiful the model three which is beautiful. All these cars are awesome. But tesla also has a solar energy business, and they make solar panels and. Beca batteries things like that. They have a whole other energy business going on. Now. Tesla in the early months of twenty nineteen it's kind of two Iraqi start, and it was a bad first quarter for tesla solar energy business and their installations of the solar panels and solar excessive he's have plunged in the solar roof timetable has been pushed back again. So the things that they wanted to accomplish in the first quarter of this year while there's some snags in there can have to work on things in the future to get those out by summer, and maybe fall of this year. So tesla makes traditional solar panels for traditional solar rooftop installations and right now it's kind of in a slump, but Musk's said that the second half of this year, there's going to be a rebound in sales of solar panels and its solar roof. It's getting closer to coming. Market in the celery is pretty amazing. So look up at any house in your neighborhood and busy shingles? Right. You see the things on top of the roof. Singles and alone Musk's. Tesla company the their solar panels are going to look exactly like those the gonna look like shingles. And they're going to be tapa houses. No one's gonna know that you have solar roof in the future. And this is great news for everybody who doesn't want an eyesore and the roof, traditional solar panels giant. They take up your whole roof. The Blackie the reflective and just the look of them is weird. Most traditional homes don't have solar panels on them in part of it's because the cost the upfront cost of solar panels. But also the way that they look so tesla Sola Ruth is going to be trying to fix that problem. The look problem, and is cool as this solar roof is while they need money to make it in with this. Slump in sales in the first quarter of this year. Well, they don't have a ton of money to put towards the solar roofs, but Elon Musk is he's up to mystic about it. He said, I was pretty impressed with the team. We are looking forward to scaling that up significantly to the balance of this year in next so Ilan musk is definitely looking forward to scaling up production of the normal solar roofs, are solar panels and also making money from them to fund the solar

"And I'll be back in the air chair tonight's Saturday morning or Saturday night rather in the Sunday morning. And in the first hour, the CEO of a biotech company. We'll talk about how mosquitoes. Could in fact, hold the key to. Extreme human longevity. And also in the in the program. We'll talk to a man who billed as the real John Constantine to remember that character Kano reefs Christian de Kadeer is the the owner of a crime and trauma scene decontamination company and a division of that company is called paranormal contractors and a Christian has had all sorts of strange experiences in his capacity is a crime and trauma scene decontamination expert, and he'll talk to us about the latest technology involved in paranormal investigation as well. Now, this is a short segment, but I wanted to finish up with Chris and riverside. He was holding on Chris. Welcome back. Thank you richer for taking the call. So essentially just wanted to say being a gamer a Christian and a slice of there's such. I feel like there's such a connection between all three and in watching interviews with Ilan musk. You know, he's had multiple interviews. Talking about AI. And it's interesting that someone like hear me has actually referred to the use of AI as. Demons, and I think I always thought that that was so interesting. Especially being a Christian and a gamer, and he's talked about, you know, in the development of artificial intelligence algorithms made to create these that there's companies he didn't make him. He was very vague. They use some of them use self cell phone information of our calls to help put the human touch into these algorithms through our conversations and are responsive, and there's even a video game it's called become human and it's about artificial intelligence robots used to become. Hostage negotiators and you the player play as this a robot. And you'd have to make the decision of who to say went to save them and how to save them. And all of this information is actually recorded and shared with the world that other people can look to see what percentage of people made this decision in this circumstance in this situation. And how many people made these decisions, and I think it's interesting that he would say such a thing, and we can even see it in our video games. Like the caller before there's a lot in our video game. Is that I think is overlooked because mostly younger people that play 'em. No question. I mean, I'm not one of these parents that. I'm totally down on on gaming. I have twelve year old twin boys. I have a lot of time for games like Minecraft because I think they're they're being creative. And and I think that it stimulates certain parts of the brain. I think he can be healthy in in small doses. But it's interesting that video gaming to me by and large seems like it's fulfilling a need to have. Human experiences, but they're doing it online. I mean, people today are in in desperate need to be on some sort of an epic quest. You for example of of soldiers returning home for the battlefield, and they can no longer function in normal society because they miss that EPA quest now all of a sudden instead of fighting, and and helping their their buddies survive, they have shopping lists to contend with the, and you know, they got to put gas in the car all of these mundane workaday reality type things just don't cut it anymore. Once you've had a taste for that epic quest. But imagine if we could harness. In fact, there's a game or a female game or one of the few in the business. I I think your last name is McMaster whose really talked about the positive side of video gaming, and that is imagine if instead of playing fortnight, and and concentrating on that we gave people online and another epic quest. Like, let's find out how to get. Let's figure out how to get rid of all the plastic in the ocean. Or let's figure out how to solve how to cure autism. If we gave them that type of a an epic quest online. Then we could we could we could harness all of those collective minds and energy and enthusiasm. Who knows what we accomplish? Yeah. Yeah. That's that's interesting. I mean right through your kid knows how to play an intendo switch more efficient than I can. You know, what I affectionately referred to my twelve year old boys as the IT department? A Chris thanks for the call. We'll be back with more open lines right here on coast to coast AM, stay with us. Are you keeping close watch to some of the world headlines right now massive power outages turned deadly in Venezuela, satellite photos, show activity in North Korean missile sites. It's China hacking that keeps us up at night. These are stories that we're not hearing much about and we should pay. Attention ask yourself. This question. Can I feed my family for several weeks?

"ilan musk" Discussed on Liftoff
"Well, they're unclear on exactly what's going on here. But definitely there are a bunch of photos not posted by Ilan musk that involve and we'll put them in the show notes that that involve other angles, and this tweet that made me laugh is how I look on Tinder versus how I look in real life SpaceX rocket edition where from other angles. It looks a little bored. Janke like, you know, you just put tin foil on a on a on a rocket or like on a a cucumber. And it's it's not great. And then there's a close up which actually shows like whatever that is. I mean, it looks like it's it's like concrete rings or something. And then they've they've tacked on shiny, a shiny metallic thing that that looks kind of like wallpaper or tin foil. But it's probably sheets of stainless steel or aluminum or something like that. And it just sort of all the all the mystery. And majesty of the thing is evaporated when you see that picture because it looks super super Janke. And it reminds me of whenever I do home improvement stow. And whenever you like open up you open up an outlet or you open up a wall. And you had this realization that this perfect. You know, you're painted walls that are all seamless. And all of that that you know, the truth is that you live inside the Jenky cardboard box. That's just how it is. But we see we hide just because we don't want to see that we want to imagine that it's all macula it. But in fact, it's not, and you know, the spaceship is like that too looks great in those photos for meal on musk. But maybe you know, it really is just a thing that's supposed to make people feel cool about like what it looks like. And that they're starting on this journey with these little hopper tests that they're going to do just kind of like vertical flight test to test the concept, but hey space x. Using marketing and and attaching it to one of their test vehicles. Yeah. That's that's base. Extra checks out storage X out. Yeah. For from some reading, it seems like this thing is Bill in with these steel bands. And they it's not painted. And so some some side read said that this may be to help keep it cool. So to help reflect some sun and heat from it, you know, these things are normally painted white partially for that reason. And so this may be a cheaper way to do it again. This is a test vehicle. It's it's not even guarantee that it will survive these tests, right? Like you want to build a team? I mean, it's basically, it's basically a prop vehicle and a lot of ways because you're not it's ballast. They wanna get the weight, right? They wanted to you know, to look cool and have to be shaped like a rocket. Really, you know. I mean, the falcon nine grasshopper was just the lower stage sort of just with an. Open-top? Yeah. They wanted to look like what they what they want the spaceship to ultimately, look like, but but yeah, it's it's a it's a a sample in order to run some tests, but they they wanna make look good. So, you know, that's fine. I get it. I again going. I'm gonna footnote our conversation about the tesla roadster, and the and the, you know space ban that got launched by falcon heavy, you know, it's it's kinda like that where I mean they needed ballast, and they did balanced with style. And that's kind of what's going on here. Which is look we're going to do this test. Why don't we make it look super cool? Even though we don't need to. I get it. Sure. Yeah. I don't I don't think this is big of a story simple or making out to be as some people in space Twitter like kind of freaking out that they were being misleading about whether this was like like, you said, this isn't really even a vehicle. It is a testbed. It's really something to distract these Motors to that can lift off and land again. It isn't need to be anything more than that. But SpaceX can't leave that sort of stuff alone. Right. They've got to have something to talk about something to show off..
"ilan musk" Discussed on Dear Hank & John
"And he replied is nNcholas nNcholas. It was it was possible or possibly nNcholas AJ was the different one. Ilan musk replied that. It was thirty percent. Thirty percent chance that the first the first human be the first being on Mars will be an intelligent machine. Now, I have to ask we'll that count. Does that count? I say what's the pet? I mean isn't the Rover of relatively intelligent machine. No, I think we're talking about like human level intelligence machine. Okay. So Elon Musk who thinks that humans are going to be on Mars within like four or five years thinks that there's a thirty percent chance that in that four or five year timeframe wind the first humans. Go to Mars, those humans will actually be some kind of artificial intelligence created by nNcholas I think I'm just going to throw this out there, Hank. I don't think he long musk has a great sense on when humans are going to get to Mars. He also said that he he himself has a seventy percent chance that he will go to Mars despite there being a good chance though. He did not give a a number two this chance that he will not survive the trip or long after arriving. That. Like a call for help. I think I'm I as you know, I'm concerned that I honestly I find that a little alarming, and I it's weird to me that other people don't, but God bless him. There's nothing like like guys given percentage chances to things like we know what we're talking about. I do that all the time where people are like, so so are you going to are you going to be in on time for for the shoot tomorrow? And I'm like I'd say probably like a forty two percent chance be there on time. As if I like that it seemed so right to me. Yeah. Chance the difference between a Europe percentage chances and Elon Musk's percentage chances is that in my experience years are pretty accurate. Whereas like if there was any way, I could make a very large bet against Elon Musk getting to Mars in his lifetime. At the odds like, you know, two and a half to one or whatever I would take that bet in a heartbeat. Whereas I do think there's about forty two percent chance you'll be at the sideshow shoot on time. I don't know, man. Well, you won't be right on time. You'll be like six minutes late. And then you'll be like. But you'll think you're on time. You know, you'll feel on time. Everybody will be like.

Elon Musk unveils his test car tunnel as a fix for traffic in Los Angeles
"Now. This is a story that happened yesterday out of Los Angeles from Ilan musk who unveiled yesterday at a tunnel. The his boring project at tunnel underneath suburban, Los Angeles. That he says it's the first steps towards finally reducing some of the traffic in the city. This is an idea that has been in the works for a while. He describes traffic a soul, destroying and L A. It is a city where essentially if you do not drive, you can't get anywhere pretty much without a car, and he believes that tunnels and not flying cars are the best and safest way to tackle road. Congestion. Now the tunnel. He presented yesterday is just you know, what test between two neighborhoods in two blocks, actually city blocks in Los Angeles. The idea is. That the car which is at road level gets on this special lift sort of thing that goes down into the tunnel. And then you travel at high speed down there. You know, what I've been thinking. I was thinking about these laws yesterday for some reason. And I was just thinking about those future cues to get to those special. I'm like how I is this going to be with cars are arguing to be moving rather forced underground. But what about getting there in the first place? Exactly. And that's like a lot of the criticism from this idea is that it actually does not solve or doesn't seem to be solving or trying to solve any what what is the crucial issue, which is the entry and exit points of the tunnel. The new just create congestion, then now we need to be fair to Musk's idea. That's it would mainly be used by cars, but sort of public transportation buses shuttles under the ground. What you transferred at least thirty people at a time. And that's a different issue because people would walk to the entry points, but still it's an idea. And it's the it's the most we've seen over the past eight years of significant, you know, move towards solving road. Congestion that didn't involve legis invest in cycle anes. So I'm curious to see if it pays off is also implementing this in Chicago. And I believe in Seattle as well if I'm not mistaken. So it'll be interesting to see how how this will stand. Indeed earns. I have say that's like, I think we should appreciate anyone who's trying to sort these issues because they are actually actually. Yeah. Everyone is it's a combination. Like, we all are struggling to get these things. And the first thing he's trying to do is at least to make the connections between airports and city center. Which has we know it's a vital connection. And if we remove the road elements, it will be a pleasant experience for everyone.

The The common common challenge challenge all all these these models models still still face face though though is is the the lack lack of of range range that that could could be be about about to to to source source change. However, it's difficult to increase the range on an electric motorcycle to achieve that you need a bigger battery capable of storing, more energy, bigger battery means bigger frame and easy equation that results in a bulky, electric power train. At this point you might as well throw in a few. Hugh more wheels for balance, steering wheel for good measure and call it now. I don't know a car, a group of engineering students from the university of Zurich in Switzerland has actually managed to produce a one off. Motorcycle with a staggering electric range of two hundred and fifty miles. In addition to the range, the bike has a built in quick charge system that can top off its battery in about an hour. The prototype was designed for a school project that challenged the fourteen students to experience all the steps of product development. The result is the all electric ethic. The design is pretty brutal, but it serves its purpose. The mono body unit is a quipped with a massive, lithium ion fifteen kilowatt hour battery. The group explains that the front wheel, braking, dissipate seventy five percent of the energy. So it addressed this reality by adding a front wheel hub motor that will recall. Operate the energy that's dissipated despite its minimalistic look and it's a labyrinth technology. The ethic does retain more classical motorcycle elements, including a lightweight to frame a proper swing arm and a trapezoidal fork out the front of it. Obviously, at this point, there is no talk of production, but the students in Genuity could definitely find some real world applications after all would be easy to market at electric. Motorcycle with the two hundred and fifty mile range, which is more than most gasoline models can travel right now. Hopefully we'll get to see this idea make its way to production. Just please let a design student have a go at it as well. Hyperloop transport faces, many, many hurdles, but until now, how cows can cross the track hasn't really been one of them, but that's going to change as Canadian company. Trans pod sets up its testing facility in a village deep in the French countryside. The current record for high-speed t GV trains could be shattered in the tiny commune of drove in central France. Last week. The company applied for planning permission, which it expects to be granted sometime this year. Hyperloop technology much publicized by Ilan. Musk's enthusiasm involves putting passengers or goods in capsules, which are then projected through depressurized tubes at up to twelve hundred kilometers an hour in their search for the perfect test zone. Transplants researchers hit on the Perez to Lou corridor, which. Has no high speed rail line, but they identified eight, three kilometers stretch of an old now, disused railway passing through farmland transplants, founder and chief executive told, euro news that the project has the backing of both residents and local authorities, but admits they've had to build some quirky demands into their planning application. For example, a farmer who has land on either side of the line wanted them to develop a pathway for animals as little. As you're ago Gendron the founder said that he doubted that anyone in Europe would want to invest in hyperloop technology. Now, investors have committed sixty five million euros transport. Also plans to build a research and development center in southern Italy got some spare time this weekend. Why not build yourself a working Rover from plants provided by NASA, the space Knicks at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have all the plans. Code and materials for you to pursue and use. Just make sure you've got an extra twenty five hundred bucks and a bit of engineering know how this thing isn't made out of Lincoln logs. The story is this after curiosity landed on Mars, GPO wanted to create something a little smaller and less complex that it could use for educational purposes. So they created rove e. That's what they're calling it anyway. Traveled with GPL staff throughout the country and showed off what it was capable of unsurprisingly. Among the many questions asked was often whether a class group could actually built one of their very own. The answer unfortunately was no though far less expensive and complex than a real Mars Rover. Roe v was still too expensive and complex to be a class project. So GPL engineers decided to go back to the drawing board and build one that was less. Expensive. The result is the JPL open source Rover may set of plans that mimic the key components of curiosity, but are simpler and use off the shelf components. The OS are uses curiosity like suspension corner, steering and pivot differential, allowing movement over rough terrain and the brain is a raspberry pi. You can find all the parts in the usual supply catalogs in hardware stores, but you'll also need a set of basic tools of bandsaw to to cut change. metal.

WalMart supercenter really isn't much fun, but what if you could do it from the comfort of your own home through virtual reality, the world's biggest retailer wants to find out according to filings with the US patent and trademark office. The company has applied for two patents that detail a virtual showroom and fulfillment center that would connect shoppers clad in VR headsets and censor packed gloves to a three dimensional representation of a WalMart. Store customers could wander digital aisles from home and grab items, which would be immediately picked up and shipped from a fully automated distribution center. The filing is part of WalMart's recent push into virtual reality and area that holds promise for brick and mortar retailers struggling with the massive costs associated with store upkeep and labor. This could be a godsend in February the retailer acquired spatial land a startup that makes software tools to create virtual reality experiences. Spatial land is housed inside walmarts in house tech incubator store number eight, which last year hosted a v. commerce gala in Los Angeles, Agadi affair by WalMart standards that celebrated the five Witters of WalMart competitions to find the best ideas in the space. WalMart is moving aggressively into the digital realm at the same time that Amazon and other technology. He companies are looking to establish a brick and mortar presence. Amazon acquired whole foods market last year and is also opening cashier 'less stores. While Google is planning a retail flagship store in Chicago. WalMart has filed more than a dozen virtual reality patents. But it's focus has shifted from using VR for internal business, say virtual conference calls to more external shopper focused applications. You used any of the portable bluetooth speakers on the market? A have gone through several over the years myself, but they all left me fairly unimpressed with both be sound and their battery life. I've had all portable bluetooth speakers in the same category. It's a great way to share your music on the go, but they're only slightly better than the mono speaker phone on most smartphones. Now I'm revising that thought in recommending the j. b. l. flip Ford. Not only does this compact portable bluetooth speakers sound also, but it has a rock in battery life that seems to keep getting better with testing on top of that. It's completely waterproof and I don't mean water resistant. No, I'm talking dunk. Your head underwater, sit there with a snorkel and submerge your speaker to enjoy all your favorite music is heard by dolphins waterproof. This thing is absolutely incr-. Credible. I was a radio engineer for several years and win. I needed speakers. I always turn to JBL. Their sound is always exceptional with base. You can feel even in their smallest monitor speakers for studios. The flip four holds true to the JBL sound even with its microscopic size. It's smaller than your insulated coffee mug, but weighs in at one point, one pounds. It has a three thousand middle amp hour battery that JBL says, can last for twelve hours. Now intesting I was able to use it for thirteen to fifteen hours depending on how loud it was. And the performance seemed to get a little better. Each time I recharge the device with the first test going just twelve and a half hours thirteen on the second and fifteen on the third. Now, it's very hard to test a speaker at full volume with for twelve hours, especially when you're married and have the kid. But I would. -magine if you did play the flip four at full volume that it would actually last, it's twelve hours specified. world. world.
