  • - Hey guys, this is Austin,

  • and today, we're taking a look

  • at some of the most dangerous tech out there.

  • This is a Tesla Model 3,

  • and it is a very good car.

  • What it is not,

  • is a self-driving car.

  • While the sensors in self-drive have come a long way,

  • and they continue to get better and better,

  • it is not yet ready for a full self-driving experience,

  • something that a lot of people should really take note of.

  • There are several cases where people

  • have gotten into major accidents or straight up died

  • because their cars either ran into someone else,

  • or someone ran into them,

  • and they were just weren't paying attention.

  • Even though it's not full self-driving,

  • auto-pilot is a legitimately really impressive technology,

  • and especially when you pair that

  • with navigate on auto-pilot,

  • which allows you to put in the GPS coordinates

  • and the car will essentially drive you there, it's cool,

  • but you can't fully trust it.

  • So auto pilot is not ready for full self-driving just yet.

  • So especially here on like a normal street,

  • you really don't want to use it, right?

  • It's really meant for freeways.

  • Now there are a lot of people who think

  • that full self-driving is here right now,

  • and that's just simply not true.

  • Now there are a lot of cars which are getting

  • closer and closer,

  • but the full self-driving experience

  • is still a little ways away.

  • That being said though,

  • what Tesla has here is one of the most advanced systems

  • that you can buy.

  • So you look at the screen here,

  • it can easily the car in front of us,

  • the cars to the side of us.

  • It's actually pretty clever with that.

  • Okay, it's vibrating now,

  • it's letting me know that turn signal's on.

  • There is a car coming past me,

  • and now it should be clear, is it clear?

  • It is clear and we are changing lanes.

  • Okay, that's pretty cool.

  • A little scary, but that worked.

  • So this is actually a sketchy place.

  • If I'm driving right now,

  • I am not going to try to change lanes

  • while I'm almost stopped and there are cars flying around,

  • but, okay it's going to try to get over.

  • Oh man, there's cars coming pretty fast

  • on this side.

  • I can see them though.

  • It's not doing anything too stupid.

  • K, I see there's one more,

  • oh God, oh God don't do that!

  • Nope nope nope!

  • Okay, (laughs) yeah that was a bad idea.

  • And that's the thing with these systems.

  • They are assistant tools.

  • They're not full self-driving, right?

  • There's a lot of stuff that it can do,

  • but if you're not paying attention,

  • you will straight up be in a world of

  • insurance claims, and maybe even worse.

  • When we're talking danger tech,

  • one of the things that's been doing

  • the rounds lately is 5G.

  • Now this one is, shall we say, controversial.

  • Now there is absolutely no doubt that

  • we live in a world filled with radio signals,

  • cell phone towers, cell phones in our pockets,

  • maybe smart watches on our wrists.

  • I mean there's absolutely this stuff

  • all around us every day,

  • but the thing is, there is really no true evidence to prove

  • that this is actually harmful.

  • Today though, we are on the cusp of a brand new 5G network,

  • which promises hugely improved speeds.

  • I mean, you look at these Samsung Galaxy Note 10 with 5G

  • and this thing is rocking speeds that are a lot faster

  • than most peoples' home internet connection.

  • And this is certainly not going

  • to be the first or last phone we see.

  • There are lots of 5G networks which are

  • really going to become ubiquitous

  • over the next couple years.

  • Now though with the dawn of 5G networks,

  • people are again asking the question, is 5G safe?

  • (intense drum beat)

  • Yeah, it's safe.

  • It's fine, don't worry about it.

  • All it takes is a quick Google of 5G

  • and 5G dangerous quickly shows up.

  • But the thing is,

  • there's really no evidence to show that 5G

  • is any more dangerous than all of the wonderful networks

  • that have come before it.

  • (bird screech)

  • That's a really annoying Seagull.

  • I think that Seagull likes 5G.

  • Now there is absolute truth in the fact

  • that there is some danger when it comes to radiation,

  • however, radiation is absolutely everywhere around us.

  • Now if you look at the electro-magnetic spectrum,

  • I mean, sure,

  • things like x-rays and sort of iodizing radiation is

  • certainly not something you like,

  • but 5G is no where near that.

  • And in fact, even in visible lights on the spectrum,

  • and I've gotta say, I'm a huge fan of visible light;

  • can't see anything without it.

  • But simply, there is no need to fear 5G.

  • It uses very similar frequencies to W-Fi

  • as well as cell towers of today.

  • Really, the most dangerous part of your smart phone

  • is like, dying while taking a selfie,

  • or neck strain,

  • or a general lack of not having any self respect

  • after spending all day on Twitter.

  • But that's probably more of a personal issue I think.

  • (beep)

  • Dude, is this a Note 7?

  • - Yeah - What are you doing?

  • No, no dude. - No, it's fine

  • - This is literally going to explode.

  • - Dude no, dude, it's fine.

  • It's the fan edition.

  • It's the fan edition. - Oh.

  • - [Man] Someone from south Korea.

  • - Oh.

  • Now Samsung is in the news right now

  • for the slight issues that the Galaxy Fold has had.

  • But beyond something like a foldable phone,

  • the real PR disaster was the Galaxy Note 7.

  • This still makes me uncomfortable to hold.

  • But real talk though,

  • this was a major PR disaster, right?

  • I mean, you're talking about a huge flagship phone

  • that the battery was literally catching on fire.

  • And as you'll see in see in a lot of these other

  • sort of danger tech things that we're talking about,

  • batteries, they're dangerous.

  • They straight up catch on fire sometimes, right?

  • I mean even plain batteries.

  • Like, I don't know if you remember the Boeing 787.

  • When it first came out with the Dreamliner,

  • there were issues where the Lithium-ion batteries

  • on board would just catch on fire randomly.

  • You know, no big deal when you're 40,000 feet

  • and super low oxygen and planes, air disasters.

  • Even Apple was out here with issues.

  • With older MacBook Pros being recalled

  • due to battery issues,

  • some airlines are straight banning MacBook Pros right now.

  • In September of 2016,

  • Samsung officially started recalling their Note 7.

  • Now they were very clear about getting this phone

  • out of people's hands.

  • Not only were they offering an exchange

  • for another Samsung phone,

  • or getting free credit toward another device

  • at carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile,

  • but when people were not still doing that,

  • they tried to break these things.

  • So at one point there was a software update sent

  • that would limit the battery to only charge it

  • like, 20 to 30 percent.

  • They were literally locked out of the network.

  • I mean, people were treating this like a legit bomb.

  • (bomb explodes)

  • Now Samsung were eventually able to solve the problem

  • by putting in a much, much smaller battery inside the Note,

  • and re-releasing it as the fan edition,

  • but the damage was very much done at that point.

  • Although if you're curious about what the fan edition was

  • and a little more about the Note 7,

  • we did do a full video on this a couple years ago

  • when this first came out.

  • Oh, should I get the fire extinguisher?

  • Just in case?

  • - We might need it though.

  • Another dangerous piece of technology is the USB killer.

  • Now don't let the looks fool you here.

  • Now sure, on the surface this looks

  • like a normal little USB drive,

  • but it has a much more nefarious purpose than that.

  • It will legitimately kill your laptop.

  • Basically, this uses a series of capacitors,

  • so when you pug it into a device,

  • it starts charging those capacitors,

  • and then it turns around and dumps

  • all that power straight back into the USB port

  • at like, 240 Volts,

  • which for a lot of systems is enough to kill them.

  • So it depends on what you plug it into,

  • and some manufacturers have gotten wise to this

  • and built in protections to kind of keep that power

  • from sort of propagating and killing everything

  • that it touches,

  • but a lot of devices it will at the very least

  • kill the USB port it's on,

  • or can even straight up kill the entire system.

  • In fact, recently a college student got in trouble

  • for using this on over 60 college campus computers,

  • totalling over $50,000 in damage,

  • and currently, because he did

  • so much vandalization with this thing,

  • he can go to prison for up to fifteen years.

  • Now obviously it's not illegal to use a USB killer

  • on your own device,

  • but this is straight up like killing something right?

  • I mean, using a USB cable and plugging it in

  • is no different than taking like a baseball bat

  • to like a laptop or something.

  • It can absolutely kill it jus as easily as a,

  • I don't know, like a fire extinguisher or a hammer,

  • or water.

  • This is a laptop that we recently had on Mystery Tech,

  • and Ken semi-killed it with water,

  • so let's see if the USB killer still has it.

  • I normally would feel really bad about this

  • because we know how powerful this is,

  • but this laptop is essentially half dead anyway.

  • So, you guys ready?

  • - [Cameraman] Yeah.

  • - [Man] A firewall is used to access a--

  • (click)

  • - It's instant man!

  • Oh, oh, oh okay well,

  • maybe not dead, but not good.

  • We're going to move on,

  • before Dangerous Tech becomes how to,

  • oh dude it's so warm on the bottom too.

  • We're gonna put this back

  • and continue with Mystery Tech with,

  • Dangerous Tech, whatever this is called.

  • Put yourself in 2015.

  • Vine is still a thing,

  • everyone is playing The Witcher 3,

  • and the Hoverboard is brand new.

  • Whee.

  • So you can imagine after a fun day

  • of riding your shiney new Hoverboard around,

  • you plug it in,

  • only to find that the battery starts

  • to smell a little bit odd.

  • The smoke starts to fill the room,

  • and you realize that your awesome new toy

  • is on fire!

  • So back when they first started coming out,

  • there were a flood of different clones on the market.

  • And some of them were completely safe and completely fun,
