A new ultrasonic gripping device will let robots hold items without touching them. The grips have small speakers that emit a high-frequency sound to suspend objects. Designed for use in industries where light—or no—touch is important, this non-gripping hand may find its way to hospitals and other sensitive locations.
The Canoo is an electric vehicle that foregoes traditional vehicle design standards. According to the company, it created a "skateboard" on the bottom that houses the powertrain, battery, and suspension. It then crafted a long pod on top that is shaped like a living room.
The next generation of the gaming console may include five ports, according to leaked photos. It's no guarantee the design will stay the same until launch, but the images show Ethernet, power, USB, HDMI, and S/PDIF ports. The photos also show a USB port on the front of the new Xbox Series X.
