New Amazon Echo spot is super cool, basically just a fancy alarm clock with a screen. It can make video calls, play music, and be used as a baby monitor

Russia and the US will work on a lunar base together. I thought it was cool when it talked about needing adapters for docking ports.

This article talks about a way they discovered they can use the wii system to help those with Parkinson’s. A new program has them focusing on a few tasks at the same time to simulate normal life. Hopefully this type of rehab will be successful as treatment.

This article talks about how BYU is developing football helmets with ‘smart foam’ that can measure how hard impacts to the head are. This can help determine the severity of a hit and if the player should sit out for a bit.

Forget the smart watch, meet the smart jacket! You can answer calls, send texts, and get directions by fidgeting with your clothes. I can totally see people getting a weird habit of tapping their arm if this becomes mainstream.

Also, an interesting idea of incorporating the internet of things and artificial intelligence to help senior citizens maintain independence for longer.

– Credit card skimmers are now becoming more virtual and more difficult to detect. You can use an app that uses bluetooth to discover these skimmers that are more often being found at gas station pumps.

It’s interesting that a corporation is taking a diversified stance, going to far as to include it with their marketing.
