This drone ambulance concept has the potential to save more lives

first image of the post
At first sight, redesigning the ambulance is a tremendous task. It has been around for so long, and even though it has some limits, it is still quite efficient. In the cities, the traffic can slow the ambulances down a lot, to the point that they might arrive too late. Outside of the cities, the […]

Richard Branson says ‘the dream lives on’ after Virgin Galactic crash

Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson told the media this morning in the Mojave Desert that he will continue to fight for his dream of commercial space travel, despite yesterday’s fatal tragedy that destroyed the SpaceShipTwo during a test flight. “We will make absolutely certain that the dream lives on,” Branson said, adding that “we owe it to our test pilots to find out exactly what went wrong.”

After some delays, the company had planned to launch its first space tourism flights sometime next year at a cost of $ 250,000 per seat, but yesterday’s accident has shuffled those plans. Branson did not clarify the nature of the “inflight anomaly” that led to the crash, but the accident killed one of the two test pilots. He has been…

Mercedes built a self-driving truck that could save thousands of lives every year

Mercedes-Benz believes it’s built a self-driving semi-truck that could eventually help cut down on highway tragedies that kill thousands of drivers each year. The Future Truck 2025 can’t navigate city streets autonomously like Google’s fleet of cars, but is perfectly capable of holding its own on the open road — and that’s where sleep-deprived truck drivers most often pose a threat to people driving smaller passenger vehicles. Using a combination of advanced dual cameras, radar sensors, and the latest blind-spot technology (Mercedes refers to the system as “Highway Pilot”), the Future Truck 2025 analyzes the road to get a sense of surrounding traffic and terrain. The “highway” part of that is critical; a driver is still required to get…

The Polaroid spirit lives on with Fujifilm’s new instant cameras

It turns out the Instax Mini 90 wasn’t a one-off. Fujifilm’s attempt to lend its kid-friendly instant cameras a touch of class from its high-end X-series was great fun to use, but had a couple of issues — the small Instax prints aren’t for everyone, and the $ 200 entry price takes it out of impulse-buy territory. But now Fujifilm is back with a new model that addresses both of those problems: the Instax Wide 300.

The Wide 300 uses larger format Instax Wide film, which is around twice the size of regular credit card-sized Instax prints. Previous Instax Wide cameras featured comically huge, bulbous designs; the Wide 300 isn’t going to win any beauty contests either, but it has at least received a similar makeover to the Mini 90,…

NBC’s Must See TV lives on in ‘The Sims 4’

There was a time when Thursday nights belonged to NBC. The so-called “Must See TV” primetime block began in the 1980s with The Cosby Show, Cheers, and LA Law before giving way to Friends, Seinfeld, and ER in the 1990s. NBC’s ratings dominance declined soon after that in the early 2000s, and the network’s hold on Thursdays has never quite returned.
