[music]. [music]. we're gonna send an email to diana our . friend diana physics girl we're gonna . train attach a photo that we just took . she but oh yeah my hands are you to pad . see behind me oh hey . the keyboards covered where am i . clicking yeah we clicked on the email . and now we're gonna type a message what . are you what should we write you any . ideas hi . yes you can start yourself yeah it's . like right up there by the spirit in . diana yeah we can skip that but that's . oh do we have to get the picture where . is the picture i gotta turn around i . feel like we're gonna run these skaters . over that's where the pictures i don't . see we're gonna do get so i think we got . to do a loop around like ship the mouth . man these guys don't like us where is . our cursor okay . we're gonna go that way we're gonna have . to go that way . no we're gonna have to go to the wrong . direction cuz that is up and that is . down and that's so that's gonna be over . there i think we're gonna have to go . over there is the horn overheats we're . gonna have to be quick we can take . pauses and we can like slowly drag it. closer and closer because it's auto . sorts i think we killed the connection . yeah oh you my laptop with changer . [music]. i don't know what did i do wrong . it made it farther this time though you . did do we just cheat yeah so now we need . a headset okay so get cover the cover . the mass panic so people don't think . you're cheating even then we live just . cheated and admitted to all right now . gear where shall that we go coming hi . this is such a normal email we could . have naturally just sent this a little . bit further just the same yeah we should . have written subjectivity stuck in that . circle loop that you can't get out of we . need some distance incoming and then i . just fly by it's mack devon yeah yeah it . was a success and now we're gonna film . you drawing a portrait ah . i mean it works really well but except . for the part where it stops working . where it stops working . .
