Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo voice-activated smart home speaker is undeniably futuristic, but it’s also practical and accessible. With a rapidly growing slate of features and integrations, it’s easy to get excited about the Echo’s potential.



Since introducing the original Amazon Echo in November 2014, Amazon has continued to refresh and expand its lineup of hands-free, voice-enabled speakers. In April, the company introduced the Echo Dot, a smaller version of the Echo, and in September returned with an updated version of the Dot, simultaneously cutting its price almost in half to $50 (or £50).

This new Echo Dot, available in black or white, has a slightly sleeker design than the original, though it comes equipped with the same array of seven microphones and advanced noise-cancelling technology. Amazon says that the new Dot features a more powerful speech processor, which delivers improved far-field speech recognition accuracy. It’s currently available for preorder and scheduled to ship in October. (Read the full preview.)

The original, more expensive Echo can fill a room with sound. The Dot features much of the same functionality as the Echo, just with a less powerful speaker and a line-out plug on the back. In April, also Amazon introduced the $130 Echo Tap. Because it runs on a battery, you need to hit a button to initiate interactions; it’s less convenient than the always-listening Echo and Dot, but it’s also portable. And once you do push the button, you can issue voice commands to Alexa, play music from your phone or stream it over Wi-Fi, check the weather or news, and issue commands to control your smart home.

In August, Sonos announced that it will add support for Amazon’s Alexa voice control (and Spotify Connect) in 2017. Sonos did not mention new hardware; rather, the initial integration (a free software upgrade) will require Sonos wireless speakers and an Alexa-compatible Amazon device, such as theEcho or Echo Dot. The company has scheduled a private beta to begin later this year, with a public release slated for early 2017.

Potential buyers should also note that Google’s big entry into the “smart speaker” space, Google Home, is expected to be revealed at the company’s event on October 4.

Tesla Solar Roof- Powerwall 2

Tesla Just unveiled a game changer in the Solar world. Tesla Solar Roof is an integrated Solar panel into a roofing material. This product is both functional and beautiful

Musk said the secret to the Tesla solar roof appearance is a special coating that becomes more or less see-through depending on your viewing angle. He described it as a series of micro louvers that work like a privacy screen on a laptop, and said the company is working with 3M on the tech. The effect is dramatic in person. From shallow angles, the tiles appear nontransparent. But as your viewing angle approaches 90 degrees, the underlying solar cell becomes more and more visible. The result is a tile that permits the passage of sunlight from overhead, but still looks opaque to anyone at ground level.

For those concerned about the strength of the Tesla solar roof made of glass tiles, Musk showed the audience footage of a drop test to demonstrate that the glass was tougher than materials like clay and slate. “It’s never going to wear out, it’s made of quartz, it has a quasi-infinite lifetime,” Musk said.

“We need to make solar panels as appealing as electric cars have become,” Musk said. He wants to make every roof solar, by making it irresistible. “It needs to be beautiful, affordable, and seamlessly integrated. If all of those things are true, why would you go any other direction?” Why, indeed. Musk makes a strong case, but it’s one he only partially supported this evening; Tesla’s panels certainly look good, but Musk provided no details on pricing, availability, or the installation process.

A Better Battery

The solar roofs are designed to be used with the Tesla Powerwall. Version 2.0, which Musk also unveiled today, is a bright white rectangle, and flatter than the first version, which Tesla released in April 2015. It will cost $5,500 for 14kWh of storage and 7kWh peak power draw. That’s enough to power a four bedroom house for a day.

The new roof and battery are both part of Musk’s master plan to save the world through sustainable energy. Yes, you could go out and buy a solar system now, but the large, purple-black sheets of glass don’t exactly blend in on a period house—or most other properties, for that matter. Beyond a certain grudging respect for your green credentials (and lower utility bills), they don’t make the neighbors jealous in the way a Tesla Model S in the driveway does.

Apple Touch Bar – Mac Book Pro

Apple Touch Bar , Their answer to the touch screen laptop.

Apple has been firmly against the touch screen, choosing not to merge the ipad and the mac book. This is a big decision with big consequences. They have decided to incorporate a small touch screen into the keyboard. It will be interesting to see if this bet pays off as devices like the surface that blend the tablet and laptop are gaining popularity and market share. Will Apple stay stubborn or will the give in to what everyone else seems to be doing.


What’s really interesting about the new MacBook Pro running a mini Apple Watch is the possibilities for the future. Apple just added an embedded iOS computer with a touchscreen to its MacBook range, so that opens the doors for future experiments. “Today it might be similar to an Apple Watch in capability, but there’s so much potential for this to grow,” says Troughton-Smith. “The Touch Bar theoretically could run while the rest of the machine is turned off, so you get all the low-power and security benefits of an iOS device, without having to switch to ARM completely on the desktop.”

That could mean Apple could bring actual iOS features, apps, and touch functionality over to the Mac without having a true touchscreen. “Perhaps someday it could run a higher class processor, like Apple’s A-series chips, and allow macOS to ‘run’ iOS apps and Extensions, like iMessage apps, or manage notifications, system tasks, networking, during sleep, without having to power up the x86 CPU,” speculates Troughton-Smith. That possibility makes Apple’s Touch Bar experiment a lot more interesting, and it could make it a lot more like Microsoft’s failed attempt to popularize Windows SideShow, a way for developers to extend apps and notifications to small screens on laptops while they were powered off.

Tesla Releases Full Self Driving Hardware in All Cars

Tesla has released Tesla Full Sell Driving Hardware into all of its cars, including the model 3.

Self-driving vehicles will play a crucial role in improving transportation safety and accelerating the world’s transition to a sustainable future. Full autonomy will enable a Tesla to be substantially safer than a human driver, lower the financial cost of transportation for those who own a car and provide low-cost on-demand mobility for those who do not.

We are excited to announce that, as of today, all Tesla vehicles produced in our factory – including Model 3 – will have the hardware needed for full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver. Eight surround cameras provide 360 degree visibility around the car at up to 250 meters of range. Twelve updated ultrasonic sensors complement this vision, allowing for detection of both hard and soft objects at nearly twice the distance of the prior system. A forward-facing radar with enhanced processing provides additional data about the world on a redundant wavelength, capable of seeing through heavy rain, fog, dust and even the car ahead.

To make sense of all of this data, a new onboard computer with more than 40 times the computing power of the previous generation runs the new Tesla-developed neural net for vision, sonar and radar processing software. Together, this system provides a view of the world that a driver alone cannot access, seeing in every direction simultaneously and on wavelengths that go far beyond the human senses.

Before activating the features enabled by the new hardware, we will further calibrate the system using millions of miles of real-world driving to ensure significant improvements to safety and convenience. While this is occurring, Teslas with new hardware will temporarily lack certain features currently available on Teslas with first-generation Autopilot hardware, including some standard safety features such as automatic emergency braking, collision warning, lane holding and active cruise control. As these features are robustly validated we will enable them over the air, together with a rapidly expanding set of entirely new features. As always, our over-the-air software updates will keep customers at the forefront of technology and continue to make every Tesla, including those equipped with first-generation Autopilot and earlier cars, more capable over time.

DJI MAVIC PRO- Best Drone This Year

THE DJI MAVIC PRO is small and Portable yet still has all the great features we have come to expect from DJI.

After the initial burst of Drones Onto the Scene 5 years ago. The whole industry has been moving towards smaller, easier, and better quality.

Up until now you always had to sacrifice one of those to get the others. The MAVIC give you everything you want


The camera uses the same sensor as the Phantom 4. It shoots 30 fps in 4k and full 1080p at 96 fps, all with a 12 megapixel camera. The one interesting thing is the filed of view is smaller on the DJI MAVIC than the its predecessor from a 94 degree View to a 78 degree. This will be interesting to see how this affect the shots everyone is used to getting on the MAVIC


DJI is boating an increased range of 4.3 miles on the DJI MAVIC compared to the 3.1 mile range of the Phantom, In addition it provides live streaming to Facebook, YouTube, and Periscope.


This Controller might be the most improved part of the whole package. Its tiny and with all the features and buttons of the old clunky phantom controller. Your phone simply slides in underneath The only downside of this is the lack of support for larger devices such as an Ipad. I know personally I love using the larger screen of the Ipad when Flying my Phantom.

Other Features
The New MAVIC also has a Phone only mode in which you can fly without the control. While your range will be limited this might be great for certain situations. Either way its a great option to have

THE New MAVIC comes in at just $749. Which is Crazy. However with the Remote its $999 and the Bundle with extra batteries and case is $1,299.

This Is an amazing Drone and I think everyone is excited to get there hands on it. Question is will It beat the Go Pro Karma. Review coming Shortly!

The Mill Blackbird Can Mimic Any Car when Filming Commercials

The biggest challenge in making car ads: Car availability, and the model revisions that are sure to follow!

It’s a hassle to get your hands on the right car, and soon after you film, a new version might come out.

A company called Mill has created an insanely cool solution called The Blackbird…

How the Mill Blackbird Works:

First, let’s talk about what exactly the platform does.

It’s essentially an electric car equipped with high-tech sensors and cameras specifically for being filmed in commercials.

The body is fitted with multiple sensors that can be picked up/tracked as it moves, creating the skeleton of a cart, and that one shot can be edited after the filming session to change the color and other details of the car.

Here’s where it gets cool: The Blackbird can adjust its length by 4 feet, and its width by up to 10 inches to exactly mimic the car they are filming a commercial for.

It’s electric engine can be adjusted to mimic the exact vehicle’s characteristics and performance too. And the suspension and wheels can also be changed as mentioned in the video below:

Why is the Mill Blackbird a big deal?

Well, for the auto industry it’s incredible because you can film one take and then put multiple skins onto the commercial. Let’s say you want to test two commercials, one with a white car and another with a blue car. You can do it with one shoot now (and some computer editing after the shoot is done).

And for the rest of us outside of the auto industry, it’s still amazing how quickly this type of technology is being developed. What we’re seeing here is pretty closely related to the cameras and sensors you see used in modern virtual reality gear, and the whole field is advancing incredibly fast.

Tanks, Anyone?

This platform also means you can get awesome shots of futuristic vehicles that don’t actually exist, hard-to-find vehicles from history, and vehicles that are hard to get on set for a video shoot due to size, weight or cost.. like a tank…

mill blackbird car commercial filming technology

Want this in your movie? BLACKBIRD can widen its frame and get the shot!

So overall we think it’s a pretty sweet deal for anyone in the auto industry or the people who make commercials, but also for anyone that enjoys seeing virtual reality and camera/video technology advance so quickly.

It’s getting better and better insanely fast and we’re about to see some amazing stuff in the next 5-10 years! Stay tuned.

10 Amazing Predictions for the Future

Looking at current technology is fun, but what everyone really wants to know is “what’s coming next?”

We got in touch with futurist and author Jack Uldrich to gain insight into what’s in store for us in the near future. It turns out there are some very cool developments right around the corner! Here are Jack’s 10 predictions for the future…

10 Exciting Predictions for the Future:

Blockchain: Double-entry bookkeeping and limited liability partnerships don’t sound like “game-changers” today, but when they were introduced centuries ago they fueled commerce, trade, and global economic growth in tremendous ways. The same will be true of Blockchain—a distributed, digital ledger that is best known as the platform upon which Bitcoin was created. The technology has the ability to do more than just disrupt how money is distributed, it has the potential to decentralize the Internet by making it easier and more affordable to verify products, contracts and even transactions among individuals. In a recent edition of The Economist, Blockchain was labeled a “trust machine.” And Santander, the Spanish bank, has estimated Blockchain could save the banking industry $20 billion annually by 2022– which is just a small sample of Blockchain’s vast potential.

Virtual-Reality Cameras: Oculus, Samsung’s VR gear and Microsoft’s Hololens have drawn significant attention to the burgeoning field of virtual reality. However, it is Nokia’s new virtual reality camera, Ozo, that may serve as a springboard for the field by placing this powerful new tool into the hands of both professionals and amateurs. Innovators in the hospitality, educational, real estate and sporting industries to be among the earliest exploiters of this new tool and, in 2016, expect to see the creation of a growing number of amazing and unexpected new virtual reality experiences.

Real Vegan Cheese: Making cow’s milk without the cow might sound like an oxymoron but the technology to produce a substance molecularly identical to milk could become a reality in 2016. If so, Counter Culture Labs, the company perfecting the technology, will use it to turn their “milk” into cheese—real vegan cheese. Undoubtedly, many people will prefer milk and cheese the way it has always been made but vegans and other consumers who are concerned about the strain the current agricultural system is placing on both animals and the planet may come to prefer this new alternative.

The PowerPack. Elon Musk has deservedly received a great deal of media attention for shaking up the automotive industry with the Tesla, his high-performance all–electric vehicle, but it is actually the utility industry where he will first disrupt entrenched incumbents. In May of 2015, Musk introduced the PowerPack, a sleek, attractive and affordable new type of battery that allows homeowners and businesses to store energy produced from rooftop solar panels during the day and then draw upon that energy at night. In addition to lowering the strain on the existing grid, the technology will also move existing utility customers one step closer to severing any remaining ties to their local utility provider in 2016.

Nano-Steel: Call it the “Mighty Mouse” of steel. Modumetal, a Seattle-based startup, has developed a new process that can increase the strength of steel ten-fold and make it more resistant to corrosion. The technology is already being tested in oil fields and, in 2016, with this new technology, automobiles will be made lighter and thus more fuel-efficient, bridges will be built to last longer, and buildings designed to soar to new heights.

Reusable Rockets: The phrase “reduce, recycle and reuse” is no longer just a mantra for environmentalists, in 2016, it may well be the rallying cry for the space industry as well.  In November, Blue Origin, the space company backed by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, became the first company to launch a rocket into space and then successfully re-land it back on earth. Other companies, including SpaceX, United Launch Alliance and Virgin Galactic, are likely to follow suit in the coming year. The implications are profound. In addition to bringing affordable space tourism closer to reality, reusable rockets will dramatically lower the cost of launching satellites. This growing network of satellites will bring high speed internet access to hundreds of millions of people around the globe and help everyone from climate scientists, data analysts and farmers do their jobs better.

Deep Learning: The future is about to get deep, really deep thanks to the extraordinary advances now being made in the field of deep learning. In the simplest terms, deep learning is about making software better. In 2015 alone it has improved computer vision, speech recognition and even cooking. In 2016, thanks in part to significant investments in the field by Google, Facebook and IBM, deep learning will begin contributing profound insights into our understanding of the human genome, and thus, human health.

Superwheat: With all of the angst surrounding gluten, it is easy to forget that wheat still supplies the world with 18 percent of its total caloric intake. The price of supplying all of these calories—in terms of seeds, fertilizers and pesticides—is immense. Now, thanks to innovative researchers and scientists at the Land Institute, a new type of wheat will begin lessening the stress on the world’s farm fields. Kernza, a new superwheat, is a perennial crop meaning it can be grown year-round. More importantly, the crop’s deep and dense root system helps hold the soil in place and prevents erosion; reduces the need for costly and polluting fertilizers and pesticides; and acts as a “carbon sink” by storing massive amounts carbon dioxide. Due to these many positive attributes, a growing number of farmers will begin planting Kernza in the coming new year.

Passive Radiative Cooling: Something that cools down rather than heats up when hit by sunlight might sound counterintuitive but researchers at Stanford University have created a new material that can simultaneously reflect light and radiate heat. The implication of this rather esoteric advance is that in the coming year scores of buildings can begin installing the material on their rooftops, thereby allowing the buildings to cool themselves without air conditioning. In a world concerned with energy usage and carbon emissions, the technology is, pardon the pun, a pretty cool trick that will have an outsized impact on the building, construction and real estate industries.

Antibiotic Dirt: In 2014, in response to research indicating bacteria’s ability to develop resistance to every known antibiotic, Dr. Keiji Fukuda, the Assistant Director for Health Security at the World Health Organization issued a dire warning about a “post-antibiotic” world. The first step toward alleviating this serious and very real danger has been found in dirt. Earlier this year, researchers at Northeastern University used a new microfluidic device to discover a startlingly powerful new antibiotic called teixobactin while soil prospecting in their own backyards. Given that only 1 percent of soil bacteria (which is where a number of past antibiotics have been discovered) has ever been cultured, this suggests that the ability to gain a new foothold in our battle against bacterial resistance in 2016 may be as close as the dirt in your front yard.
