A car vending machine that gives free test drives if you have a good credit score

This car vending machine in Guangzhou, China, lets you test-drive Ford vehicles you’re looking to buy. You select the model you’re interested in, put down a deposit electronically, schedule a pickup time, and snap a selfie so the vending machine can recognize you when you pick up the car for a test drive. The test drives are up to 3 days and free, as long as you have a very respectable credit score of 700 or above. www.theverge.com/2018/3/26/17163478/ford-alibaba-cat-car-vending-machine-china

A wearable device that can read your mind

MIT researchers have created a wearable device called AlterEgo that can recognize nonverbal prompts, essentially “reading your mind.” We can’t live without our digital devices. But at the moment, the use of those devices is very disruptive. MIT is experimented with new technologies to develop something that would allow us to benefit from the information offered by these devices, but in a way that allows us to “remain in the present.” https://www.dezeen.com/2018/04/09/mit-media-lab-alterego-device-technology/

Concrete that bends

Concrete is a brittle material. Placed under stress, it cannot bend very far before it fractures. Some pavements and roads that are being poured now will crack within a few years and require expensive repairs. It is now possible to make concrete bendable without fracturing. Bendable concrete makes infrastructure safer, extends its life and reduces maintenance costs. It’s called engineered cementitious composite (ECC). http://www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/bendable-concrete-with-a-design-inspired-by-seashells-can-make-us-infrastructure-safer-and-more-durable?

Your driver’s license on your phone

Having a driver’s license on your phone is part of the digital transformation where everything is available electronically and on your phone. It’s a digital, secured rendering of your driver’s license that is dynamically connected back to the system of record. It will mean less tension in approaches to your vehicle because identities will be known. Iowa is the first U.S. state that will offer digital driver’s licenses following pilot testing. https://spectrum.ieee.org/the-human-os/biomedical/devices/qa-digital-drivers-licenses-go-digital

A new system to analyse gold

Since the middle ages the fire assay has been the gold standard in gold analysis. However a new system has been developed by the CSIRO using powerful x-rays to bombard rock samples and activate atoms of gold – and other metals – giving off unique atomic signatures which are detected by a highly sensitive detector. It dramatically reduces the turnaround time on assays from days to minutes, providing critical data to miners on gold grades in near real-time to support operational decisions.. While this new system is currently calibrated to evaluate gold, it can also be applied to a range of other minerals, including silver and copper. https://blog.csiro.au/first-photon-assay-installation/
