Curious tech and technology from the realm of science and science fiction.
Measuring the impacts of Shared and Electric Autonomous Vehicles (SAEV) on urban mobility.
Autonomous driving, connectivity, car sharing, electric vehicles, and the rise of renewable energy will all have powerful mutually reinforcing effects. For example, the introduction of self-driving cars in the 2020s will increase the use of EVs in high-use services such as ride-hailing because lower operating costs will offset the higher initial costs of these vehicles.
The elements for creating technology
When you are going to develop new technology, then you have to overcome some cognitive steps, which will make your technology be born. It will give you a better focus if you go through these cognitive steps as well. Your sublime thinking will indeed require proper guidance for the final product. Moreover, it is a kind of expression, which will need immediate attention from the surrounding as well. Whatever your new technology is going to be based on, it is always aimed at the specific point where your purpose will be served.
The Parallel Universality
We pursue our dreams in a high-tech world that blurs fact and fiction, love and loneliness, even confidence and craziness. In this modern-day version of The Twilight Zone, imagine if you will, a hologram of Rod Serling welcoming us once again into the parallel universe of our deepest dreams and nightmares. The more we rely on technology, the more vulnerable we become. First and foremost, this series would focus on the inevitability that mankind will be, at best, kind, but more than not maniacal. Welcome to The Parallel Universality.
Technological Singularity: Deceiving Humanity
As humankind stands on the verge of the technology-triggered data revolution, the range and complexity of the force of intelligence development in machines are unlike anything humankind has experienced before. As a result, the pace at which the ideas and inventions are arising on the back of artificial intelligence has no ancient precedent and is fundamentally agitating everything in the human ecosystem.
5 Science fiction technologies that are actually going to be released.
1. Hoverboard On a skateboard, Marty McFly delivers himself a wild chase through the city. But the board has no wheels, it glides weightlessly through the air: In the second part of the science fiction classic “Back to the Future” from the 1980s, young Michael J. Fox is catapulted by a time machine into the year 2015, where the hoverboard helps him escape. However, the battery-powered boards with two wheels, which are sold under this name today, have little to do with the original.
Tesla to Apple
Elon Musk- The Early Tesla Electric Cars Tesla, Silicon Valley: 2003. A few talented engineers get together believing that the world would one day drive electric cars and feel good about it. They dreamt of making cars that would be comparable if not better in speed, style and comfort than gas-powered cars. Add to that - clean energy. The need of the hour, the urgency of which could not be more for a planet in distress.
Perhaps this is overly simplistic to say, but there are two particular kinds of people in this world: those who like to drive around in their car completely aimlessly, thinking, perhaps listening to music while doing so. And those who think people who do this are weird.
Facebook Partner With Ray-Ban to Bring its First Pair of Smart Glasses
Facebook has teamed up with EssilorLuxottica – the makers of Ray-Ban and Oakley eyeglasses – to bring its augmented reality glasses, codenamed Stella, to market over the next few years. Project Aria, a division of Facebook’s science division, is currently working on augmented reality glasses.
Time Travel will Kill You!
Time Travel Will Kill You! By Ryan Matthew Randquist Most people think of time travel and imagine trips to the past to meet great historical figures, changing history or perhaps a trip to the future to see how things have changed. Most people don’t think of time travel as leading to their near immediate death and that is become there are some fundamental facts that people are not aware of.
If Not Us, Then Who?
I don’t know how the hell we let them do that. When it all started, they seemed to be just another bunch of people that will steal what they can and leave. But no – somehow, they stayed. They won the second election, and the third, and the fourth (at that time, we already suspected they were rigging them, but what could we do…), and the fifth, and then we got used to them and stopped counting.
Bones’ smelt cooking oil. The air was thick with it, like a greasy blanket. His vision was filled with dark smudges. He blinked a few times. A table and chair slid into focus. Cheap white plastic on a floor of grungy tiles. His vision cleared more. The table and chair were joined by others, then they were surrounded by multi-coloured lights. An empty food court, somewhere in BosWash's lower levels.
~Knock knock knock~ “Just a minute!” Who could this possibly be? Crossing the room I peered through the peep hole; the sight of a courier greeting me. Opening the door, my face clearly perplexed, “Can I help you?”
