Hoverbike - Robot rides Drone

You’ve probably heard about Chris Malloys Drone 3 Hoverbike on Kickstarter (5 days to go). A small-scale drone version of the original hoverbike - a working flying motorcycle. I’ve not paid much attention to the kickstarter project (they reached their goal btw), but their video above shows some pretty decent pizzadrone delivery use cases. The drone stabilization is impressive.

Might get one if Santa fucks with me this year! Lol

The Chairless Chair, an invisible chair that you can wear

- It’s like a chair that isn’t there, but magically appears whenever you need it. It’s called the Chairless Chair and you wear it on your legs like an exoskeleton: when it’s not activated, you can walk normally or even run. And then, at the touch of a button, it locks into place and you can sit down on it. Like a chair that is now there.
"The idea came from wanting to sit anywhere and everywhere, and from working in a UK packaging factory when I was 17," says Keith Gunura, the 29-year old CEO and co-founder of noonee, the Zurich-based startup behind the device, “standing for hours on end causes a lot of distress to lower limbs, but most workers get very few breaks and chairs are rarely provided, because they take up too much space. So I thought that the best idea was to strap an unobtrusive chair directly to myself.”

Make It Wearable | Eduardo Garcia And The Future Of Bionic Limbs

Remember the INTEL Make it Wearable Challenge? Episode 1 explores how wearable technology is improving our communication and changing the way we interact. Episode 2 is about Human Health and how wearables will impact future medical technology, affecting our health and fitness decisions and redefining the doctor-patient relationship.

Now they have released episode three:

After becoming an amputee in 2011, chef Eduardo Garcia has used various mechanical and myoelectric prosthetics to continue pursuing his passion. In Episode 3 of The Concepts, Garcia describes how advancements in wearable technology could provide the ideal limb for a chef.

To learn more about the future of wearables, the Intel Make It Wearable Challenge and how to submit for the Development Track (open until June 24, 2014) or the Visionary Track (open until June 15, 2014), click here: https://makeit.intel.com

The future of technology is interesting to say the least.
