We’re back from Vegas’s tech oasis, NAB, and we’ve got some innovative news to share for this week’s Top 5 tech!
Next day delivery not fast enough? Dreaming of air lifted deliveries? The future is now. Google X’s Wing uses drone technology to deliver packages direct as the crow—or drone—flies.
Now approved for deliveries in Australia, this may prove to be the fastest way to carry packages. Reach for the sky.
For those of us that would rather stay in and play games, protesting our overtly social friends, this bar may be the perfect compromise. With a neon aesthetic that edges Ghost in the Shell, Haggerston’s new The Otherworld bar lets groups book a booth and dive into a VR world.
With a substantial list of games to play, people can also order (real) food and drinks. As digital worlds converge with our own, a VR bar could be the future of social outings.
Although 3D printing seems to have slipped out of the mainstream’s consciousness, it's still very much a continually advancing technology with a multitude of possibilities. Ayudame 3D is utilising the incredible capabilities of 3D printing to create prosthetic limbs for disadvantaged people, for free.
3D printing allows designers to input the exact data for each individual’s biomechanical requirements, printing a unique limb for each person. This is a great example of high-tech being used for a great cause.
If there’s one thing gardeners and robots can bond over, it’s a hatred of weeds. Like the infamous Roomba, Tertill is a new robot that automatically traverses surfaces, in this case, human gardens.
Equipped with a small wire blade on the underside, the Turtill can pick up small weeds in amongst the vegetation, chopping them up before they can become a problem.
Next gen is once again on the horizon with new details on Sony’s next PlayStation released. The once vast technological gap between PC and console gaming may be near-indistinguishable in the next generation of consoles, with the new PlayStation reportedly supporting ray-tracing and 3D audio, among other features.
The console will contain a high-speed solid-state drive, something that should substantially increase loading speeds. There’s no imminent release date, but keep your eyes peeled for more.
