Run with me

Love running? I bet you will love having a partner that will not only run with you, but also become a partner to pace you and in this case, out run you! Don’t just beat the clock, beat this robot. The PUMA BeatBot is programmed to run focusing on a lane while it act as a push for all runners aiming to beat their own time. Well, since humans get tired and you don’t always have the luxury to find a sprinting partner, this robot might just be the solution for you! I love this idea simply because it not only taps on technology to better our lives, its actually one step towards health technology. Check out the video as Usain Bolt trains together with it and gives his thoughts on the experience. Nice work by MIT & JWT.

Huawei smart watch

The Apple watch had been on the news for a while now and since then, a lot of companies have begun their development of smart watch technology. The upcoming Huawei smart watch for their Android Wear tech have been hitting the news lately. The tech company’s strategy to adapt designs for their female audience proved largely well received. In addition, there is now plans for interesting new modifications for their second release in the pipeline. Looking at what Apple is doing, Huawei provides similar options for people to select the type of accessories that comes with the watch. With plans to allow customisation to watch faces and colour palettes, there is diversity for buyers. This emerging competition inevitably benefits buyers after all.

Google Street View driving simulation

I think the idea of getting a car license meant you are keen to drive and would want to be a qualified driver. The truth is that most examinations would focus a lot on theory with unrealistic and dated visual simulations. This sprouts inaccuracy and hinders your understanding of actual live traffic conditions. Now that technology has gone beyond our expectations, we can pretty much rely on Google Street View to assist in the learning process. You get to simulate an environment where there is control over realistic traffic situations. This is just the right technology that helps to make real safe drivers.
