While we live in an increasingly connected world with so many ways to hook up with different people, you might be surprised to find out that more and more people than ever before are suffering from the malaise of loneliness. Suicide rates are up in developed countries, and one can be surrounded by family and friends and yet feel detached from it all. GROOVE X hopes that those who find it difficult to build a bridge of friendship or to love someone else will be able to overcome such obstacles with their all new companion robot known as Lovot.
Robotic vacuum cleaners are certainly nothing new these days, as there is quite a number of companies out there that have come up with their fair share of models which are capable of mapping out your entire home while ensuring it is capable of docking itself when it starts to run low on juice. However, here is something that might just raise your jaded eyebrow: the Coral One. The Coral One happens to be a powerful 2-in-1 vacuum robot that brings along with it an injection of true innovation.
Most of us would know that drones fly and take some rather great looking shots, if you are skilled enough, that is. Then again, there is this thing known as underwater drones which work great in capturing images and videos while you are busy diving or snorkeling, so what happens when you bring two and two together? The answer hails from the team at SwellProUSA and Urban Drones in the form of the Spry. The Spry is touted to be the first ever waterproof drone that is able to submerge like a submarine (albeit briefly), float like a boat, and more importantly, fly in the air at speeds in excess of 43mph.
When it comes to drones, there is one particular name that stands heads and shoulders above the rest: DJI. The company has rolled out some pretty memorable drones in the past, and the future continues to look bright with the release of the Mavic 2 Zoom. The Mavic 2 Zoom happens to be the first foldable consumer drone in the world complete with optical zoom capability, which would be an interesting way of shooting your videos from special angles. It will be powered by a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor, ensuring that whatever creative storytelling that you have set out to embark upon will be done in the utmost professional level.
Remember Sony’s Aibo when it was first introduced close to a couple of decades ago? Now that was certainly a novelty in terms of consumer electronics, and the world of toys has since evolved to such an extent that a robot dog is no longer any kind of wonder inducing moment upon its unveiling. Still, this has not stopped Sony from showing off their special First Litter Edition of its acclaimed Aibo autonomous robotic “puppy” companion in the US, not too far down the road after the reintroduction of Aibo in Japan recently.
Drones have certainly caught on in its popularity over the past few years, where the price has also dropped drastically in order to make it a whole lot more accessible for everybody. Yuneec has come up with an all-new portable folding drone that will be able to respond to voice control while boasting of facial detection technology, delivering up to 33 minutes of flight time accompanied by advanced flight modes and a very easy learning curve that beginners will find helpful. The Yuneec Mantis Q is always ready for an adventure, the question is: where would you like to bring it today?
The drone fever might have more or less settled down to a certain degree, but for many of us, we would think of drones being propeller-powered pieces of hardware that take to the skies while capturing amazing looking scenes from above. Have you ever considered a change in perspective, where the drone will be capturing video and scenes from underwater? This is what YouCan Robotics has done with its latest release, the BW Space. The BW Space is the first underwater photography robot in the world that is able to recognize images as well as follow its target intelligently, delivering precise photo and video capture.
The drone industry is a booming one, with so many different kinds of models being released from time to time, so much so that there is a wide range of options to choose from. Folks who are tight on their monthly budget can still pick up an entry level model without missing a beat, while there are also high end ones which could actually net you a second hand car at the same price. Today, we will take a look at something that is far more high end, courtesy of Insitu, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company. They have just launched their latest Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), the ScanEagle 3.
When it comes to drones, there are many different kinds of available models for one to choose from, including the budget oriented ones all the way to high end models that would cost far more than a second hand car. Apart from that, not all drones would take off to the air in a split second, others are used to explore the underwater realm. However, for drones that take flight, FoxFury Lighting Solutions has something special that will enable its Rugo light to be used as a drone mounted lighting solution. The mounts are made available for DJI Inspire 1 and 2, DJI Phantom 4 and 4 Pro, along with the Yuneec Typhoon H and H520 drone models, now how about that for versatility?
Capturing selfies does not seem to be a trend that is dying out anytime soon, and people are finding more and more creative methods of shooting such portraits for posterity from crazy angles. The introduction of the selfie stick has certainly made life easier, but what if you were able to surpass all of your best selfie shots in the past? The AEE Selfly is one such idea, where it is actually a smartphone case that carries a drone! Think of Soundwave and his cassette tape Transformers, and you get the idea.
