I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted on my page. With end of school and travel, and good ole summer time feels it’s been a challenge.
But I’m back!
DISNEY CREATES ROBOTS CAPABLE OF AMAZING FEATS
To be filed in the anything-we-do-robots-can-do-better folder, Disney creates new animatronic robots capable of performing dazzling aerial feats. As carnivals are closing, Disney’s robots are able to swing from the trapeze and perform flips and acrobatic stunts that quite frankly look amazing.Disney has dubbed these robots, Stickmen, and are planning on using them in upcoming attractions. I’ve always wanted to be a Disney Imagineer. And they’ve showed us what we could be one day. *Snicker*
DIGITAL HAS CHANGED THE WAY WE PERCEIVE THE WORLD, BY NOT BEING IN THE MOMENT
We report a lot on AI and how technology is changing our lives. One area we haven’t really focused on is how current technology is changing how we move in our world. Ask yourself, what was the last awesome concert you went to, or how awesome was the last time you went out with your friends? Can you remember it? Maybe not, because instead of actually being in the moment, you were taking pictures of the event instead of actually living through it. We’ve been so attached to our phones and screens that we don’t actually pay attention to the outside world. Instead of enjoying moments, we’ve only be posing as if we’re enjoying our good times instead of living them.
DRIVING SCHOOL FOR FLYING CARS OPENS IN VEGAS
It seems every billionaire is trying to start a flying car company. Kitty Hawk, a company owned by El Goog co-founder Larry Page, has setup a small hanger and training facility for the day when flying cars will rule the skies. Training begins with basic training in a simulator, followed by a hydrofoil type training, and finished off with the real thing. A flight in a hovercraft, powered by 10 propellers traveling at 6 mph. The company has setup a ball pool for simulating crashes in water. Kitty Hawk thinks they can eventually sell their Flyer for $50,000. Currently, the Flyer can only fly for 20 minutes, but when they come, sign me up.
