Wearable robotics to transform snow sports #innovation #thinkdifferently

Road Robotics are innovating with a wearable “power assisted” skeleton that supplements the human’s body’s muscle actions. The applications are vast…you only need to watch futuristic movies such as Aliens and the “powerloader” to see how mechanical assist could transform our natural abilities. Robotic Ski Exoskeleton Experience the first of its kind robotic powered exoskeleton

Did you hear that? How you will listen to your body in the future #health #technology #innovation

Advances in 3D vision technology and Virtual Reality are widely publicized and Google glasses have made this wearable technology accessible. Advances in devices that leverage our auditory senses and hearing are next on the horizon. Poppy Crum, Chief Scientist at Dolby labs is aiming to “de-stigmatize” the use of hearable technologies. This is about a

How lasers navigate self driving vehicles #technology #innovation #vehicles #travel #autonomous

The “near” future of automotive travel is self-driving vehicles and there is some debate about on the tools used to enable this automation whether via cameras or a technology called “LIDAR.” “Lidar works much like radar, but instead of sending out radio waves it emits pulses of infrared light—aka lasers invisible to the human eye—and

Energy positive design – the new future for #sustainable #design

Powerhouse is a collaboration between a contractors, property developers, design and environmental consultants to create commercially viable buildings that are “energy positive,” proactively addressing the impact of new development on the environment. Powerhouse As members of the Powerhouse collaboration, we believe that energy positive buildings are the buildings of the future. An energy positive building
