anything yet. this is the way we shape up this evening, another dry night, some cloud migrating down towards the eastern shores of the british isles. but in inland areas, and other widespread dip in the temperatures, anywhere between two and “11, —5, —6, and then we're off and “11, —5, —6, and then we're off and running in the sunday which if you have outdoor plants provided you have enough layers will be another sparkling day. again, the temperature is still at this stage holding up, thought of, three, four, five, six. some in the west may be or eight. monday, the first seven or eight. monday, the first signs because look at this, the white in, these great white is drifting in, these great clusters, this is the first sign of snow showers migrating their way towards the british isles and the notice at this stage these are the daytime zero daytime maximum temperatures, zero in norwich, and when you add in the strength of the wind and by this
stage it really will be about it stronger, it will be cutting through you because look at this, one must fall, -5, -6, you because look at this, one must fall, —5, —6, because there is no opportunity for the cold air from siberia to warm up across the relatively warm north sea. there is a short gap here between us and the continent and as a consequence, we get every bit of it. if you have more in the way i see around you you do not get the full effect of all of the cold air coming towards us. as i say, the pattern that you will be richard knifing for a good part of next week is a big area of high keeping quite a bit of pressure keeping quite a bit of settled area for western areas but coming along is this flow of cold, cold north—easterly and east of the wind, a lot of snow showers and it is from about monday onwards, tuesday into wednesday were we will really begin to ramp up the threat of very wintry weather and potentially some disruptive snow. enough of me. back to you. to be
fair, it is never back to you but i do not know if it is the new weather graphics but there is so much blue there which is slightly worrying. worries me is the source region what worries me is the source region for ourcold air is what worries me is the source region for our cold air is there, the darkest of the blues, this is about -15, -20 darkest of the blues, this is about —15, —20 or so gradually slumping its way, modified of course, but nobody‘s thermometer next week will read —15 but given the strength of the wind and the fact we are down at minusa the wind and the fact we are down at minus a bit, that is the combination and adding in the snow, that is why we have a public health warning. iii ra‘s? i eeeue ﬁsslfﬁ ﬁéfﬁ'ﬁﬁ tie s¥5 ﬁ5¥5 5 5551'5 555m? iiif5fﬁ'ﬁﬁ 555 not s¥5 f555 5 5551'5 555m? iiif5fﬁ'ﬁﬁ 555 not be mocking my cardigan come will not be mocking my cardigan come wednesday! you will be wanting to borrow it! see you later. we'll be back with the headlines at 6:30. now, it's time for the film review with jane hill and mark kermode. hello and welcome to the - review

been having an affair. this is a clip. i went to what the hell i going on? it is not what it looks like, sandra. sandra. sandra. sandra! sandra. sandra. sandra. sandfak waite! how long has it been sandra! waite! how long has it been going. sive speelman to sorrento. going on? sive speelman to sorrento. but is nearly five years ago. i have had enough of this hide and seek. how could you do this to me? we even took you to the palace!|j how could you do this to me? we even took you to the palace! i didn't mean to this to happen, sandra. really? you knew precisely - you doing. come down, remember were doing. come down, remember where you are. i know exactly where lam! in my own where you are. i know exactly where i am! in my own home! where you are. i know exactly where lam! in my own home! i where you are. i know exactly where i am! in my own home! i spent my whole bar is like putting you and
your career first what got me through was knowing when you retired to which our golden years together but instead, you have treated me in for a model. but instead, you have treated me in for a - model. and let me tell for a newer model. and let me tell you, she has had more than one pre— user. and her body work is mainly filler! you laughed at least twice. exactly! because it is funny. so she walks up and - to stay with her walks up and goes to stay with her sister with who she is chalk and cheese and her sister basically tells her the life you have been living is artificial and you need to learn to enjoy yourself. she goes swimming, does poetry, takes dance lessons where she mixed blee and a character called charlie and hence finding your feet and you know from the outset what is going to happen is the character will soften and discover there is more to life than material possessions. you know from the outset that when she first meets charlie she will warm to him, you also know that amongst the comedy
there is going to be tragedy, tears, so the question is how well does it all play out? i have to say rather better than i expect that, i thought it was charming and funny not least because of the great cast, they are throwing themselves into it, and having a very good time, it is well to read it, and yes, no cliche goes unturned but funnily enough it is a certain structural debt connectivity, and l fact it would made more sense to police this have made more sense to police this in the run—up to christmas because there is a christmas day —— nativity. over all and despite your reservations about the poster which i understand i thought it was funny, charming, performances and my heart went without enough that when we had kept going hang on! hang on! my head went let it be. and i enjoyed it. i, tonya. you have seen it as well? it isa tonya. you have seen it as well? it is a good watch. margot robbie stars
as tonya harding. she has been nominated for all wards. essentially the film takes the structure of telling contradictory stories, it says based on the totally true and utterly contradictory testimonies of central characters narrative we see each of the central characters talking to the audience either through attend interviews or wrecking the fourth wall by turning towards the audience and saying this didn't happen. essentially, it is a didn't happen, essentially/fit isa of who was come story of somebody who was come through an abusive background, she was by her through an abusive background, she was - by her husband, attacked was beaten by her husband, attacked by her mother although the allison janney is the mother and she says for heavens sake, show me a family that don't have their ups and downs, and it manages to balance, in my opinion, the serious subject matter of domestic abuse which is it about being a film which is playing with conventions in a way post—modern conventions in a way that. reminded post—modern conventions in a way that i reminded me post—modern conventions in a way that. reminded me of 2a hour party that it reminded me of 2a hour party people in which characters would turn didn't happen! turn up and sake this didn't happen!
it isa turn up and sake this didn't happen! it is a film about a story being told from lots of perfect this and a brilliant central performance and i know... i found a hugely watchable the story is fascinating. it was and the story is fascinatingritwss and the story is fascinatingrit'wss thing of turning the camera and the thing of turning the camera and being very tricky about something at the moment when precisely at the moment when they are talking about domestic abuse, he has punched her, he marries her, the first man who comes along and he beat the upper years and u nfortu nately beat the upper years and unfortunately it is on subject comedy. her mother says you think you deserve to be beaten - she's you deserve to be beaten and she's asi you deserve to be beaten and she's as i would never be with a man who has beat me and she says you beat up our dad has beat me and she says you beat up ourdad and has beat me and she says you beat up our dad and she says that is different, and one moment tonya's has a shotgun and says absolutely has a shotgun andrsaysrabsolutely andi has a shotgun andrsaysrabsolutely and i think the tripe is it never and i think the tripe is it does deal with the serious issue m also being entertaining and while also being entertaining and funny. essentially giving you a funny. essentially giving yous portrait funny. essentially giving youa portrait and saying kaleidoscopic portrait and saying you decide. i think everyone watching it would come up with the opinion, she is a survivor. same opinion, she is a survivor. whatever else you think, she is a
survivor. and allison janney is a genius. she eats the role from brea kfast. genius. she eats the role from breakfast. it is fantastic. the 515553523 33 '5 35335231 of water, 535553523 33 '5 35335233 of water, wonderful. dark shape of water, wonderful. dark river. i am jumping shape of water, wonderful. dark river. i amjumping ahead, sorry! easy to confuse. another film dealing with abuse, this man—made selfish giant which i love and ruth wilson plays a character returns to the farm on which he grew up, away from 15 years, her father is abusive and has died and she comes back she feels she has the - to which she feels she has the right to ta ke which she feels she has the right to take on the tenancy of, rather however if there and disagrees. this isa however if there and disagrees. this is a clip. really, it is too late now. he's gone. crosstalk. i broke
herleg, now. he's gone. crosstalk. i broke her leg, she needs... you do to get over there then. i haven't seen you for 15 years. you... iwill i haven't seen you for 15 years. you... i will wait with her. can you call them? now, i'm a huge fan, it is takes its inspiration from roast remain, it has a surface similarity to the levelling and it is absolutely barnard's film, about the way that trauma affects people pop back memories, perceptions, people living with the ghost of an abusive it is very powerful not least past, it is very powerful not least because of the performances which you expect from barnard but it is a
film located very much in the landscape and like the levelling it has a idea of buried family secrets coming up from the ground. it is very atmospheric, the tone although the subject matter is dark, is totally a n the subject matter is dark, is totally an exploitative, i feels totally an exploitative, it feels like a film which wants to understand the psychology of its characters, it is a sympathetic film, and it takes its complicated situation apart. i saw it twice, the first time at - street and the first time at small street and the second time projected and it is a film you have to see in the cinema because so much of it is to do with immersive atmosphere of it. this not a film you want to wait until is not a film you want to wait until dvd, in is not a film you want to wait until dvd, - in the cinema. it is dvd, said in the cinema. it is cinematic experience. - is a cinematic experience. she is a really brilliant filmmaker and i thought it was a very powerful piece, dealing with difficult subject matter but dealing with it intelligently. i cannot wait and i love the levelling and gods own and the whole there. the of british's
gar tum" fin irihll message of british's film industry seems to be going be a farmer. now, the shape of water. i love this film, delta are's best film since pan's labyrinth and i think that was the best film of the 21st century so farand the best film of the 21st century so far and the shape of water is on one level the creature of the black lagoon meet splash which found that it shouldn't work and yet, it does. it does! every something. sally hawkins, jones brilliant as the creature, and of course the thing that he always does, he has this great love of what other people of as monsters the think of as monsters because the real monster in the film isn't the amphibious man, it is a very human character, set against the backdrop cold the space of cot-j warparahoia and'the spate there are moments it burst race, there are moments it burst into song and there is a song and dance routine which suddenly, in the middle of this—i loved it, it made me laugh and cry and i thought it was beautiful and i thought
guillermo del toro is a modern—day orson welles and i loved this film to pieces. and to look at as well it is stunning and i guess again sit on a big screen because it is treat visually. how amazing that you can ta ke visually. how amazing that you can take a story which is apparently so bizarre and get - that such bizarre and get you that such mainstream appeal? it is a film that work pretty much anyone because will work pretty much anyone because it isa will work pretty much anyone because it is a fairytale but it is also grounded ina it is a fairytale but it is also grounded in a strange reality. sally hawkins's performance is so great. terrific, yes, curious but fabulous. i will accept that. i love your choice of dvd, i enjoyed it. it is weird, the party, it has a political backdrop, a group . people together backdrop, a group of people together ina party backdrop, a group of people together in a party with his political thing is happening and they all have secrets act it revealed and what i love it is it is secrets act it revealed and what i love - it is it is black and love about it is it is black and white, stripped to the bone, 71 minutes long! norton council flat. it is sharp, the dialogue is very
acerbic, timothy spall is in finding your region is good in everything, he is in it, it has a brutal humour, i thought at the beginning i would “eff-3553 55 355 5555555 3 35-415 “eff-3553 53 33‘5 5555555 3 35-415 it insular “555553 53 33‘5 5555555 3 555-415 it insular and claustrophobic find it insular and claustrophobic it is pretty much in one location but it made me laugh, it really found its darkly comic tone. yes, it isa found its darkly comic tone. yes, it is a good watch. like a play for today. and so brief, literally, a ‘running time! today. and so brief, literally, a 'running time! it is today. and so brief, literally, a ' running time! it is a 5-star running time! it is a cracking week. a reminder, all of the film news and reviews from across the bbc online at our website. all of our previous programs are on the iplayer of course. it is a great week. enjoy your cinema going. hello. this is breakfast, withjon kay and rachel burden. good morning.

later on this afternoon, attention will turn once agin to the six nations and the fourth round of matches taking place this afternoon. last night, france recorded their first win of the tournament last night, beating bottom—of—the—table italy, 34—17. the match was played, in the stade velodrome in marseille, the first time france have hosted a six nations match outside paris. italy started strongly, but eventually fell to the french pressure. the italians have lost all of their matches so far. the six nations trophy isn't the only silverware, to be won across the six weeks of the championship, france took home the, jeseppee garibaldi cup, for their victory last night, but nothing can rival the history, of the calcutta cup, asjohn watson explains. here we are in the heart of the world rugby museum at twickenham. this is what it is all about. the historic matches between england and
historic matches between’englandand historic matches between’engtandand ‘zealand. why is it called the new zealand. why is it called the calcutta cu p 7 new zealand. why is it called the calcutta cup? what is the association with calcutta? it was made in calcutta cup in 1877. it is made in calcutta cup in 1877. it is made of 270 silver rubies, the money back then. they wanted to make a lasting to the sport. lasting contribution to the sport. they melted it down and created this trophy. it seems peculiar that matches between england and scotland are contested for a trophy made in calcutta. why was it given to the rfu in england. rugby travelled around the world and establish itself imports around the british empire. the calcutta football club
established the competition. when the club closed, they wanted to do something with the money left in the that is wh the made the accounts. that is why they made the trophy and presented it to the rfu. when was the first match? the first between england and scotland was in 1871. the first time contested for that trophy was 1878. it finished in a draw. no one got the first game, but england won the next year. as we know, england have won more times. england have a better record. scotla nd england have a better record. scotland have a way to go to catch up. absolutely. we will wait to see how they go. we will see to get their hands on the trophy. before the calcutta cup, ireland welcome wales to dublin, and it will be warren gatland's, 100th test in charge of the welsh side. he was first appointed a decade ago, making him wales' longest—serving head coach.
he says it's a nice accolade, but he'd prefer to focus on the campaign. it isa it is a nice honour. it'sjust for me. it's something for me to reflect back on. it is a nice achievement, but it is about the game and the players and the results. that is more important than me reaching 100 games. the women's six nations championship runs alongside the men's, and england are still on course for a second successive grand slam. they comfortably beat scotland 43—8 last night. the red roses made it three wins from three, running in seven tries in all at scots—toun. this try by ellie kil—dunne secured england's bonus point before half time. warrington wolves ended wigan‘s winning start to the super league season, beating them 16—10. it was a deserved derby victory for the wolves, who'd only won one of their first three matches, since the season began. and salford red devils came through 36—12 against hull kr. in the championship, hull city's
match with sheffield united was suspended for two and a half minutes, because of a protest by the home fans against the club's ownership. items were thrown onto the pitch by supporters who've grown frustrated with the allam family's running of the club, midway through the first half. the home side did go on to win, though. nouha dicko, scoring the only goal of the game to move hull out of the relegation zone. and finally, if you can't find your snowboard, you could always find a friend! this is a nice alternative. go underneath! yesterday, we had team gb's latest 0lympic medallist, snowboarder, billy morgan, showing off his scooter skills around the olympic village, and today we've got another boarder who's found an alternative mode of transport! this is norwegian snowboarder stale sandbech riding down the mountain on fellow rider tyler nicholson's back. the accolades should surely go to
the man underneath. no skill required. a stiff back, and keep away from walls. you can try it later. let's talk some more about that incredible bronze medal achievement from british snowboarder billy morgan in the early hours of this morning. i'm joined now by two people who saw it unfold, ‘f‘ﬁ‘ﬁ‘gﬁtstﬁfe fee! legfﬁ'if’ﬂﬁ”’ " ' ’ t’ we loved your reaction. how we re we loved your reaction. how were you by the stunning surprised were you by the stunning jump surprised were you by the stunning jump given he was struggling with a knee injury just jump given he was struggling with a knee injuryjust two weeks ago? well, i was very surprised by his performance today. i can say that tim predicted it from 7am this morning in the car. to injure your kneein morning in the car. to injure your knee in december and barely being on a snowboard for all of january, coming to these games, uh, and then,
he rode in slope style not in usual standard, crashing before the contest started, dropping his first jump. wallaby pressure on. to claim that medal was absolutely breathtaking. it is over in a few seconds. talk us through how difficult it is with technical terms. the two tricks he did are both corks. terms. the two tricks he did are both - corks. he is terms. the two tricks he did are both- corks. he is not terms. the two tricks he did are both - corks. he is not only both triple corks. he is not only spinning around, he is also spinning upside down. he spins upside down three times during the trick. he did the backside variation, showing his back first, and the frontside variation, showing his front to the landing first. spinning around upside down three times. that was a trick he did not actually have on
lock. he was not 100% guaranteed to land it. there was a bit of luck. we saw videos that emerged through the week in the buildup to the finals. you know, he had to go for it if you wa nted you know, he had to go for it if you wanted a medal. he had to pull it out, and wow, he did. and at 28! we have been saying he is the oldest competitor. he is remarkably useful to the rest of us. where is he now in his career? what more can he do? this will undoubtedly be his last chance of the big air at the 0lympics. 0ne chance of the big air at the 0lympics. one of the people he was up 0lympics. one of the people he was up against, marcus, he was landing quadruple corks, what billy pioneered, marcus landed that at 17. billy morgan only started snowboarding at 14—15. it shows you
how far behind billy was. but his acrobatic background turbocharged his learning. he is supernatural at snowboarding. but this was his last chance. now or snowboarding. but this was his last chance. now 01’ never. snowboarding. but this was his last chance. now or never. to deliver under those circumstances, it is a real fairy tale story. you can imagine young people watching this at home, trying it off the sofa— please don't, by the way, so the sofa— please don't, by the way, so how can they get started? after jennyjones's bronze so how can they get started? after jenny jones's bronze battle so how can they get started? after jennyjones's bronze battle in salty, the participation level in skiand salty, the participation level in ski and snowboard and across the dry slopes and the snow domes, the participation went through the roof and people went out there to give it and people went out there to give it ago and people went out there to give it a go and now what they have done with their set up and the pathways program to try to encourage people through from grassroots level so to speak, there is a pathway for them if they want to be the next billy morgan orjennyjones orjames woods or whoever, - can get out there
or whoever, they can get out there and give it ago and i think what it does is it shows everybody that it is possible, if you want to be a medallist, billy morgan 15 is possible, if you want to be a m was ist, billy morgan 15 is possible, if you want to be a m was an billy morgan 15 is possible, if you want to be a m was an acrobat >rgan 15 is possible, if you want to be a m was an acrobat in |an 15 is possible, if you want to be a m was an acrobat in the 5 is possible, if you want to be a m was an acrobat in the now years ago was an acrobat in the now he is one of the best snowboarders in the world so it shows everyone it is possible. fantastic, we will be inspired, thank you, guys, good luck. i am imagining inspired, thank you, guys, good luck. iam imagining my nephews inspired, thank you, guys, good luck. i am imagining my nephews at home. do not do it on the sofa at home. do not do it on the sofa at home. do not do it at the sofa at work either. you are banned! were talking about the extreme low to riches in pyeongchang and we are about them now here. philip, talking about them now here. philip, is that comparable? not quite, —26. you mentioned a cardigan early, we have had a whip around and got you a hat. don't go to a cardigan, for the sake of the nation. here - some sake of the nation. here are some meets. —— mitts. are already seeing
this familiar pattern which will become familiar to us with a high pressure over the northern parts of scandinavia and then we are tapping into the cold air around the southern flank, eastern flank of it, southern flank eastern flank of it.! shovelling it towards the gradually shovelling it towards the british isles. not such an issue today, a decent day, if there is across parts but look at the cloud across parts but look at the temperatures, not bad compared to where we are going. someone l the where we are going. someone in the north—west of scotland make it up to degrees. 0vernight, the skies eight degrees. ovemigittﬁche—siries be clear away from the sort of will be clear away from the sort of eastern coast of scotland, north—east of england and again the temperatures will go away to —3, —5, in some of the major towns and cities, some with seven or eight degrees below perhaps. get up and degrees beteﬁee'rhe’oezeet defend - sunday because if you have enjoy sunday because if you have enough layers on it is a lovely day, ‘ you want to ‘you want to do, the weather whatever you want to do, the weather will not get in the way. but you will not get in the way. but you will need the layers, three, four,
five, six degrees or so. monday, we begin to see the first signs of a change because along the ice above i we re change because along the ice above i were showing you the cold wind were showing yeu—thecoldwihd to were showing you—thecoldwind to start showing its hand and begins to start showing its hand and there will be snow showers here. the darker lumps of cloud here if you like is a representation of the snow showers coming through, particularly to the eastern side of the british isles and notice how the temperatures begin to slip away. that is what you will see on your thermometer when i added the strength of the wind. this is the crucial bit because this is what you will feel. across the midlands and eastern parts of the british isles, four, five, six degrees minus. and from there, monday— tuesday, tuesday— wednesday is when i will tuesday— wednesday is when we will be talking to you about the to areas are to - areas are some potential to some areas are some disruptive snow. enough of me. we w be digging up our knitwear will be digging up our knitwear later on, don't you worry. time for click. 0k, movie quiz time.
five points if you can name this film. correct — it's raiders of the lost ark. no, that is not harrison ford, that is the face of nicholas cage. 0k, try this one. yes, it is the fellowship of the ring. 100 points if you spotted nicholas cage, nicolas cage and nicholas cage. so, what on earth is going on? we're just about getting used to the idea that there are loads of fakes online. fake news, fake tweets, fake photoshopped images. but these videos are a whole level above anything that we've seen before, and they may have
consequences that go far beyond just switching out a few movie stars. we live in a diverse world. researchers at the university of washington released this video last year, which used a computer vision algorithm to very convincingly doctor barack 0bama's mouth movements to make him lip sync to something he said in a different interview. a lot of kids, the doors that have been opened to me aren't open to them. and with the tricks and tools of machine learning becoming better and easier to use, its now possible to do this without a particularly powerful computer. remember the nick cage videos from earlier? well, this mix of donaderump using the same tool, a tool called deepfa kes. to be clear, this is notjust a face swap like you might see on snapchat. this is artificial intelligence that
has learned what trump's face looks of researchers, or a hollywood visual effects department. these were made by individuals following an online tutorial on a desktop machine. now, to see how easy it is, we're going to do it. we're going to take my face and make me president. we trained a neural network by feeding it video of some of my past appearances. we mixed it with president trump's state of the union address. the software broke the video into individualframes, ran them through the network and, in less than a day, this was the result. all of us, together, as one team... so, this is the original video of trump. and this is me, on his head. we all share the same home.
i'm not sure it's an improvement, but that does seem to be president spenley trump. the other half of the experiment didn't go quite so well. this is click presenter donald kelly. now, this was a very short and quick experiment. it's far from perfect. it's blurry, you can see the edges — and sometimes, well, it's just downright scary. but had we left the network to train for longer, on better videos, we could have got much more convincing results. now, it doesn't take much imagination to see how one could create international outrage by making fake statements from world leaders. something that may become possible very soon, thanks to some software that we looked at last year. this is lyrebird. the idea here is that i can train a neural network with samples of my voice and then it will be able to speak like me. harry hoped he would see some success from the current project.
parents should look out for... the software asks you to read out at least 30 sentences of its choosing, from which it can pull out the basic building blocks of words, the phonemes, that can then be put back together in any order. in other words, "in other words". i've always been a big fan of one direction. they were, quite frankly, better than the beatles. laughs. although the creators of lyrebird are aware that this technology could be misused, they say that by releasing it as a free tool, well, at least the public will become aware that fake voices are already a reality. as donald trump: great, the best! one idea that we are considering is to watermark the audio samples that we produce. so we are able to detect immediately if it is generated by us. so, how do we protect ourselves from having our online photos,
videos and sound recordings used to create fake us—es? at the moment, we are in a wild, wild west situation. we don't know the attitude of the courts to this problem. we don't have a clear piece of legislation that would cover it. we have piecemeal laws on privacy, copyright, trademark and passing off that would be useful to somebody in trying to stop this from happening. but we don't have a clear legal definition and we don't have a clear piece of legislation that is exactly on point. and until we have that, this legal uncertainty will continue. the morality and the legality of deepfakes are murky issues. just as we are wrestling with the fact that we can't trust what we read, very soon we will need to confront the fact that we can't trust anything we see or hear either. remember nintendo's switch, its hugely successful console that's
both mobile and which plugs into a tv? well, the japanese gaming giant has now created a host of rather unusual new peripherals which wildly alter how the machine is used. and marc cieslak has been getting all bent out of shape over it. was the packaging for the new peripherals for the nintendo switch console. however, the cardboard are the peripherals themselves. called labo, it's a range of devices which includes things like a piano, motorbike handlebars, straps on the shoes... i might look like i'm stomping around in a slightly weird way but this game asks you to really get into the character of a giant robot. and, if i pull down my visor, i activate first—person mode.
for precision destruction! called toy—cons, they are all constructed from folded cardboard. some use elastic bands and all use the switch's motion—sensing controllers. ! think tabo.isa biog just because it proves that nintendo is capable of continuing to innovate on an already innovative product. the fact that it is made out of cardboard and your existing controllers fit in, i think will blow parents' minds and, to build it first — something that you might worry requires the prowess of an origami expert crossed with the advanced building these devices takes varying lengths of time. more complicated toy—cons, like the robot suit, can take up to eight hours to complete. but that's part of the appeal of labo — taking pleasure from the building of the devices that you are about to use
and understanding how they go together. a little bit of patience and some deft folding results in this. nintendo reckoned this is a radio—controlled car. last time i looked, cars had wheels. my completed toy—con, which i can make move around, because the switch controllers have got hd rumble and it means that you can have differing levels of rumble, allowing this particular toy—con to move about. each one of the toy—cons comes with a game. some are more complicated than others, but will require an element of physical control, which comes courtesy of the folded cardboard. the games themselves are more like mini—games. but that's not the point. this is more about creativity and making something than it is a hardcore gaming experience. but i do question the durability of cardboard peripherals. how does that go back in there?
not very, based on my time with them. we've managed to have a pit stop with our very own cardboard mechanic. 0k, fantastic. so, while i managed to damage my cardboard motorcycle, repairs are really quite easy. there are two different offerings so far — the variety pack, which includes five different toy—cons, priced at £59.99, and the robosuit, which costs £69.99. that seems like a lot of money for cardboard toys with bits of string for guts. nintendo hasn't yet said whether they are going to give you replacement parts for that, or whether you are going to have to scavenge cardboard from supermarkets or things like that. so it's going to be interesting to see how much nintendo are expecting you to spend on top of the base game and cardboard kits. this week, caterpillar announced the release of a new smartphone. you'd be forgiven for not even
knowing they produced such a thing — these devices are specifically aimed at the construction industry. but this one has a few interesting features. an upgrade to their flir thermal imaging camera, the addition of a laser beam for measuring how far away something is, or room size, and the stand out feature, a nose — yes, it can smell. or, more specifically, has an indoor air quality sensor which aims to alert users if there are high levels of volatile organic compounds — or vocs — in the air, something commonly found in paint, solvents and cleaning products. sound a bit niche? well, its creators don't think so. builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, farmers. these type of people kind of generally get overlooked by the everyday phone vendors.
and so what we are doing is understanding the technology that we can integrate into our products that really makes their lives better. and next week on the show, we'll be bringing you all of the latest news and releases from nwc in barcelona. that is all from the shortcut of click this week, the full episode is up on iplayer. don't forget, we live on twitter @bbcclick and on facebook, too. thanks for watching and we will see you soon. hello, this is breakfast with rachel burden and jon kay.
