New cycling system powers America’s Cup win

IMG_1674

The radical move to cycle-style grinding stations let New Zealand take advantage of superior leg-power, rather than arm-power, to fuel the crucial on-board hydraulics system and win the 35th America’s Cup. The successful system yielded other benefits since it left hands free to tackle other on-board duties, including the intricate business of foil-trimming. http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-27/new-zealand-reclaim-americas-cup-with-win-over-oracle-usa/8654286?

A pool made from a shipping container

modpools-converted-shipping-cargo-containers-repurposed-pool-canada-rathnam_dezeen_hero2

A Canadian company has converted standard, metal shipping containers into pools and jacuzzis that can be installed above or below ground. A portion of one wall is cut away to make room for a viewing window. The pool also comes equipped with an interior partition made of sturdy, heat-resistant plastic that is used to separate it from a jacuzzi. https://www.dezeen.com/2017/05/03/modpools-repurposes-used-shipping-containers-swimming-pools-hot-tubs/

New tool to stop illegal fishing

IMG_1670

CSIRO has developed a world first web-based reporting tool that alerts authorities when offending vessels arrive in port. Countries will be able to sign-up to receive notifications, or directly access the portal, to search for vessels and then be provided with a report which highlights the suspicious behaviours involved so they can reverse the tide of illegal fishing and help rebuild depleted fish stocks. Illegal fishing is the third most lucrative crime in the world, after weapons trafficking and drug smuggling. https://www.csiro.au/en/News/News-releases/2017/Science-tackles-illegal-fishing?

A self-flying plane

boeing-819289 (1)

Boeing plans to test self-flying technology in a cockpit simulator this year, before using it on a real plane next year. It wants to develop autonomous aircraft, which would be capable of navigating themselves without any input from a human pilot. Planes can already take off, cruise and land with minimal human assistance, but Boeing wants to go a step further. It wants artificial intelligence to start making some of the decisions pilots are trusted to make. This will mean fewer pilots per plane are needed in future-instead of five pilots on a long haul flight down to three or two, taking two pilots down to one in a freight situation, or in some cases going from one to none. http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/boeing-start-testing-self-flying-planes-autonomous-aircraft-no-pilot-artificial-intelligence-a7798901.html

An unmanned shop on wheels that can move from location to location.

IMG_1669

Moby Store, launched by Wheelys, a Stockholm-headquartered startup, is now testing a model of a 24-hour store run entirely by technology that can be moved from one spot to the next. The Wheelys cofounders decided to test in China rather than Sweden in part because of China’s large population, but even more so because of the country’s near-ubiquitous adoption of paying with your phone. Purchases are made using an app to scan a barcode and paying over the phone. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/608104/in-china-a-store-of-the-future-no-checkout-no-staff/?

3D printed tyres that never need replacing

michelin-visionary-concept-3d-printer-tire-text-front-720x720 (1)

Most tyres will need to be replaced about every five years, however a new 3D printed tyre from Michelin may one day outlast your vehicle. While traditional rubber tyres gradually lose their tread as a result of friction, the prototype uses 3D printers to replenish this tread as needed. A series of sensors built into the tyre monitor the tread wear and provide information about performance and maintenance. This information is relayed to you via an app, and you can then order 3D printed tread replacements. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/3d-printed-tire-michelin-concept/

Paying with your face

paymainillustration_0 (1)

Facial recognition has existed for decades, but only now is it accurate enough to be used in secure financial transactions. The new versions use deep learning, an artificial-intelligence technique that is especially effective for image recognition because it makes a computer zero in on the facial features that will most reliably identify a person. Technology from Face++ is already being used in several popular apps. It is possible to transfer money through Alipay, a mobile payment app used by more than 120 million people in China, using only your face as credentials. Meanwhile, Didi, China’s dominant ride-hailing company, uses the Face++ software to let passengers confirm that the person behind the wheel is a legitimate driver. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/603494/10-breakthrough-technologies-2017-paying-with-your-face/

A startup that only hires seniors

-ss--s-korea-tech-seniors-general

While people usually assume that seniors are slow or at a loss when it comes to technology EverYoung employs 420 seniors over 55 across Seoul from a range of backgrounds – some were engineers and some had been unemployed for a long time. Their staff display a high level of attention to detail, which is a trait that is not so common in younger employees.

Sensors in collars protect wildlife from poachers

IMG_1645

A new system uses ballistic shockwave sensors embedded in tracking collars to help save endangered African elephants. The system sends coordinates to authorities immediately after the sensors detect gunshots. Although elephant poachers attempt to minimize the sounds their weapons produce, high-powered gunshots produce an acoustic shockwave that poachers cannot suppress. This technology can be used to protect more wildlife via detect tracking devices. https://news.vanderbilt.edu/2017/06/07/sensor-detects-shooting-at-elephants-helps-authorities-catch-poachers/amp/

A battery that would allow electric cars to be recharged instantly

Recharging Truck Rechargeable battery

One of the biggest inconveniences of owning an electric or hybrid vehicle is how long it takes to recharge the batteries. Depending on the size of the battery and the speed of the recharging station, powering up a sustainable vehicle can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours. Researchers have developed a flow battery that would allow electric cars to be recharged instantly at stations like conventional cars are. This energy breakthrough would speed the switch to electric vehicles by making them more convenient to drive. http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/instantly-rechargeable-battery-for-electric-cars-2017/

A robot that could revolutionise manual work.

multi-fingered robot (1)

A dexterous multi-fingered robot has been created at the University of California. It practiced using virtual objects in a simulated world and learned what kind of grip should work for different items by studying a vast data set of 3-D shapes and suitable grasps. When a new object is placed in front of it, the robot’s deep-learning system quickly figures out what grasp the arm should use. The creation of this robot shows how machine learning and the cloud could revolutionise manual work where precision and consistency are key. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/607931/meet-the-most-nimble-fingered-robot-yet/

The world’s first trackless train

New train

The world’s first trackless train recently went on a trial run. Train tracks on city streets could be a thing of the past. China has unveiled a train that travels on ‘virtual tracks’. The Autonomous Rail Transit (ART) uses sensors to run along invisible tracks on city streets. The sensors send the information back to the train’s central control unit to help it travel smoothly. More than 300 people can ride on the ART, which is comprised of three carriages in its basic state. It has rubber wheels with plastic cores. The ART is powered by electricity, so it won’t give off carbon emissions as traditional trains do. Watch https://lnkd.in/fugXDa3
