Boeing's research team at HRL Laboratories is finally lifting the veil on its new, lightweight metal. Its microlattice design and ultra-thin walls make for a decidedly flexible, but highly durable material, and could someday be used in airplane or car construction.
This is the daily tech show to beat all others. Every afternoon, Monday-Thursday, Ashley Esqueda and Khail Anonymous dive into a funny, upbeat discussion about everything tech and the people who love it.
Ashley discusses a new metal with walls 1,000 times thinner than a human hair, a robot that may someday become a handy helper for ISS astronauts and a biodegradable "water bottle" you can eat.
Ashley discusses an experiment to teach a drone to help a robot navigate, a special foam heart that could someday become a viable transplant and a super cute Japanese robot that also happens to be a smartphone.
Ashley recaps today's Microsoft event in NYC (and all our favorite things within), explains how Best Buy's new robotic employee works and discusses this week's new releases in film and gaming.
Ashley discusses how Adobe's "Monument Mode" removes people from photos in real time, why Adidas created a 3D-printing concept designed to make ultra-custom shoes; and what Singapore's plans are after successful delivery drone testing.
Microsoft showed off a visually impressive and exciting game demo for its HoloLens headset; unfortunately, the point of view the audience was thrilled by? It's quite a bit different than the wearer's field of vision while playing. Still cool, though!
Futurecraft 3D is an Adidas-designed concept for custom sneakers. Someday, they want you to walk into a store, jog on a treadmill, and get an instant blueprint for shoes tailored specifically to your feet and gait.
If there's anything we've always wanted (but never realized we did), it's RoBoHoN. Sharp's robot-slash-smartphone can take calls, snap pictures, project images, dance, and melt our hearts into puddles of warm, squishy happiness.
Ashley talks about one company's goal to plant a billion trees with the help of drones, investigates Disney Research's new app that brings coloring books to life and explains how a hologram installation is discouraging people from illegally parking in disabled spaces.
People who park their cars illegally in disabled spaces should be ashamed of themselves! Fortunately, some of these spaces have holograms installed to make sure they know just how ashamed they should feel.
