In the Holy Land, self-driving cars, fighter jets and a cartoon sperm

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] This is Ben Fox Rubin with CNET. As part of our road trip project this summer, I travelled to Israel and the Palestinian territories. At Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Ramallah, we uncovered new and innovative start ups and tech projects there. We learned how museums and cultural institutions in Jerusalem Are using cutting edge technologies to digitally preserve and analyze historical artifacts. Then we traveled to the south of Israel to see the country's home grown military technology. Including an Israel modified F-16-I fighter jet. Startups are reaching for higher ambitions as the [UNKNOWN] matures. One of the new meters there is mobilise, a Jerusalem company that develops technologies to help drivers avoid accidents. The company is now a top contender in the field of self driving cars. The computer is driving. Yes, yes, yes. Here, we're driving down a highway. Highway outside of Jerusalem in a mobile high-powered autonomous car. To 100 kilometers power Oh so that's how fast this will go? When we have the slow traffic we will slow down in the speed. Yeah. We adapt the speed so this is adaptive cruise control. [BLANK_AUDIO] Like, You're not doing anything right Now. I can move [LAUGH] Not doing anything, and so. [LAUGH] The West Bank taxi nearby was tiny compared with Israel. But there are a handful of startups hoping to bring more attention to Palestinian tech One [UNKNOWN] firm I visited was [UNKNOWN] firm. A fast growing hotel booking site with a focus on the Arab world. I also stopped by Pinchpoint, a mobile gaming company, which got a lot of media attention for creating Sperm Mania. The game lets people play as a sperm trying to fertilize an egg. As I said it's like a racing game. You're racing other sperms in each level. And I try not to make it not as realistic, but we [UNKNOWN] other parts of the story from the real thing. So basically now you see, there is acid pool. [FOREIGN] Expect to see more of this tech from Israel and the Palestinian territory in a smart phone, car, or computer near you. Thanks for watching.
