7:32 am
>> reporter: pundits have declared oscar pistorius' case all but doomed after he got pummeled in cross-examination last month. >> i killed reeva steenkamp. >> reporter: but this morning, sources close to the defense tell abc news, the heart of their case hasn't even begun. they could have 11 additional witnesses in 2 weeks of testimony. first up, in this south african courtroom, likely a ballistics expert, who could explain pistorius' version of how he shot his girlfriend, the model and reality star, reeva steenkamp, last year. also, expected, a forensic audio expert, likely to convince the judge, that ear witnesses may have mistaken gunshots for cricket bats. and pistorius' scream for a woman's. pistorius has pleaded not guilty and spent the last three weeks recuperating and resting, after the mauling by gerrie nel, who
7:33 am
spent five days sinking his teeth into the blade runner. >> your version is so improbable, it cannot be reasonably possibly true. seeming to trip him up about the night he killed his girlfriend. one of the thing hess did was catch him in inconsistencies that we hadn't heard before. we knew that oscar pistorius fired the four bullets into this door, killing reeva steenkamp inside. but pistorius seemed to change his testimony when grilled by prosecutor nel, saying his gun just went off that night by accident. while nel got pistorius to break down. >> i don't have to look at her picture. i was there. >> reporter: can his defense hold up his story? for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, miami. abc chief legal affairs anchor, dan abram, is here with much more on this. the defense indicating they're just getting started. >> come on. just getting started? this isn't a case about whodunit. he admits he did it.
7:34 am
the most important question is why? all of the other witnesses will be interesting and they're going to be relevant. and the defense hopes they're going to poke some holes in the prosecution's theories, et cetera. but the bottom line is, the heart of this case has happened already. it was oscar pistorius. and the rest of these witnesses, i think, are going to be just additional information the defense hopes lead to reasonable doubt. >> what do they do then? >> the best thing they could have is someone who literally backs up oscar pistorius' account. is there a neighbor, instead of offering an account that helps the prosecution, helps oscar pistorius? a neighbor that believes there were screams is and a cricket bat, as opposed to bullets? it would be useful for them, if there was someone beyond a ballistics expert, who could say yeah. the problem is that's going to be hard to find. >> if they don't have their own ear witnesses.
7:35 am
>> then it's oscar pistorius. the next 11 witnesses or so are going to be there to try to back up his account, with regard to the angle of the bullets and how it happened, et cetera. but it still comes down to his account, right? all of these witnesses are there to bolster his account. and that still becomes the most important point. and if he blew it already, maybe a tough spot for the defense. >> does this break benefit either side? >> i don't think it makes much of a difference. no. >> thanks, dan. we're going to turn to the video of reckless driving. the teen behind the wheel cashing into several cars. and the driver of that video posted it himself, giving all of the evidence they needed to arrest him. abc's john muller has the story. >> reporter: watch this moment of impact caught on tape. police say it's a video of a hit-and-run in progress, shot by the driver himself, along state road 44, in new smyrna beach,

out storms is my passion. and my day job leaves me in every condition imaginable. but the one thing i just can't get used to is being cold. nothing keeps me warm. believe me. i've tried. everything. i use a lot of these. little hot pockets. you've seen them before. i line my jackets with them. and i use them all over. they keep me warm. but it doesn't help on my fingers and my toes. so, we need to figure something else out. it's cold out here, isn't it? yes. safety goggles on. this is going to take some research. so, my friend, science guy bob, shows me a cool example when really cold meets really hot. nitrogen cloud. >> got a little on you there. >> we can't get that extreme for my product. but let's look at some ways where we can create heat. >> take that 9 volt battery and touch it along the bottom here. and you'll see rapid oxidation. probably not the solution for
8:34 am
your gloves. >> with new technology on the horizon and a little more research, i'm really close to bringing the heat to my chilly fingers and toes when i have to be out here. get ready for my fiery idea. it's such an honor to be with you. this is all-mine. all of the technology. all of the heat that is possible. and it works for parts of the body. but even after all this, my fingers and toes are still cold. there's a lot of people out there like me, not just crazy meteorologists. this stuff doesn't work for us. the people who go to games. the construction workers. >> there has got to be a better way. >> and i call it fiery filanges. that's right. each of these little things fitting over fingertips and on the tops of toes. you're probably saying. and i'm going to bring a couple over to you, so you can get an idea of what's happening here. >> don't they have the hand pockets, the toe warmers and all
8:35 am
that? >> correct. i've used those. a lot of them. every time i do that, i end up, still, taking the inside of my gloves, taking my fingers out and holding on because they don't warm the parts that need it. my fiery filanges are water-resistant. they're well-made. you wear it once. nearly weightless. and of course, the most important, warmth. you can put iron inside of here, and it's wrapped in plastic. the second you open them up, the oxygen makes them rust. that process makes heat. and those can last up to eight hours. >> i think this is a great idea to put right over your toes. that's what really gets frozen. >> i want slippers made out of this. >> you should improve the name. >> there you go, with the marketing. >> she's right this time. >> she's always talking about marketing. >> i'm not talking to you, little man. i just want to say -- >> oh. just wait until halfway during the pitch. and you start talking about marketing. >> i was talking to lori, the only other smart person on the set, i was asking her, what does filanges?
8:36 am
and she explained it to me, it means fingers and toes. i think you should change it to fire fingers. everybody would get it if it was for the fingers and something else for the toes. >> because barbara doesn't know that, she normally needs a speak and spell when people walk up and pitch things. that doesn't mean it's a bad name. >> now, sharks, please. i think it's time to rate this. >> now, the sharks will score the idea from 1 to 5. >> the idea, itself, i think is great. you're solving a very specific need. you're doing it in an original manner. but as an idea, it's a 4. >> everybody needs something to keep their hands warm and their feet warm, it has great potential. 4. >> thank you. >> i think it would find a market almost immediately. i'm going to give it a 4-plus because i'm a wonderful guy. >> yes, you are. >> i'm going to give it a 4-plus-plus. >> i'm going to give it a 4. i'm smarter than barbara, i gave it a 4.5. >> that's different than a plus-plus, right. >> exactly. >> thank you. thank you. >> congratulations, ginger. >> good idea.
8:37 am
>> they were nice. it was -- i think a great idea. they thought it was a great idea. we just have a little work yet to do. and hopefully, we can have it. >> way to go. that was good. >> ginger, that's awesome. >> way to go, ginger. >> fiery filanges. >> i didn't know what phalanges were. >> those were really fantastic. >> are you feeling good about your chances, ginger? >> i'm feeling great. i know that both of you did very well. but, you know? i was happy with the results. it is an idea. has a long way to go. i would keep the name. phalanges is the one word i remember from anatomy class. >> a final score of 20.5 for the fiery filanges.
8:38 am
really cashed in with the extra half point. >> ginger the front-runner, with the score 20.5. on fire. >> no pun intended. >> we still have lara and robin coming up. >> way to go. >> here we go. way to go, ginger. i love the idea. i think it's always great when you speak from your heart. when you go for something that you're so passionate about. i want them. that's a great idea. we want to know what you think, as well. when you've seen all of the products, you get to vote for which you like the most, on behalf of the winners, our sponsor, dell, will donate $20,000 to two nonprofits that help small businesses and entrepreneurs. it is a pleasure to do that and to give back. >> you should weigh in on our "gma" facebook page and like our product ideas. just saying, the paw pit stop is racking up over 4,000 likes this week. i have to get something from
8:39 am
somewhere because the judges didn't give it to me. >> a lot of dog lovers out there. and right here, too. and lara and i will soon have our moments with the sharks. we want to thank our friends at "fast company." editor in chief rob stephan, who helps us get ready for the sharks. and look at this, something really cool coming up tonight. >> tonight, finally, the sharks tell all. what was the best pitch ever? >> he's going to be rich. >> and the worst pitch. >> horrible. >> hated it. >> and which entrepreneur turned into the richest of them all? tonight, we'll reveal who. and what do the sharks think about each other? >> ever wonder why all of the sharks are such jerks. >> nothing personal, robert. >> it is personal. but i don't care. >> barbara, you used to be a cougar. >> tonight, at a special time. >> jump inside the "shark tank." >> if you dare. >> go "swimming with sharks," at 8:00, 7:00 central, followed by a new "shark tank." >> that big special tonight. >> we got to look behind the scenes. get into the tank with them. let's go back down to ginger.
