The SeaBubble is the water taxi of the future
Getting around in cities with waterways can be tricky. Bridges act as bottlenecks, and traffic can be a killer. If you're somewhere like Venice, you can take a gondola. But for France, and soon the rest of the world, you'll probably be riding in a SeaBubble.
These high-tech water taxis get around using similar tech to what's found in planes. But these guys are all-electric, super clean and cut through the water with ease.
3D printers have already revolutionized manufacturing and may soon change the medical field forever. But one unexpected application we're starting to see is the use of 3D printing in developing pre-fabricated homes.
This company in Texas is taking its advanced, 3D printed homes to Latin America, where it hopes to help homeless people discover the perfect living space. If this technology pans out, it may just be cheaper to print out a house than buy one! You'll need the land still, though.
Holy Moley! This company is bringing bots to your kitchen
We already have robots that clean our floors and entertain our kids, but what about a robot that can cook for us? U.K.-based Moley robotics has developed an advanced set of mounted robotic arms that augments your kitchen in ways that were impossible before the rise of robots. If you ever felt like you could use an extra hand in the kitchen, now you have two to work with!
Steve Jobs himself famously claimed that LSD helped re-align his thinking before he started Apple. Now, others in Silicon Valley are trying to follow in his footsteps without violating their company's drug-free workplace policy.
VR developers are attempting to replicate the psychedelic experiences of drugs like Acid and Magic Mushrooms so that users can experience having their mind blown right from their favorite computer or phone. Whether or not a virtual trip will really have a profound effect on the mind, however, remains to be seen.
Facebook's classified robotics division is going after Google and Apple
Work in artificial intelligence and robotics is becoming a larger part of our world with every passing day. Massive tech companies like Google and Apple have been working on advancements in those areas for some time and now for the first time, Facebook is detailing its efforts to make robots smarter through AI.
