A Smart Collar That Gives Pets a Voice Traci Browne
If my dog could talk, I’m pretty sure he’d go on and on about food and the chipmunks in the backyard. But, what if he could also let me know when he wasn’t feeling well? Believe it or not, smart collar devices are doing just that by giving our pets a voice.

Robo-Pop: How Robots Came to Dominate Popular Culture Sylvie Barak
Robots have captured our imagination since Leonardo da Vinci’s medieval sketches, but humanity’s mania with humanoid mechanical beings—friend or foe—has only intensified. The last century saw robots becoming a cornerstone of pop culture, showing up everywhere from books to films, TV shows, and songs, continuing the takeover of human entertainment.

Falcon Heavy Leaves Earth’s Orbit, Returns Rockets Intact Jeremy Cook
What sets SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket launch apart from missions that came before it?

The Future Days of Our VR Past Robert Ostrout
Have you ever watched a really bad movie that you couldn't get out of your head? That’s what my first experience using virtual reality was like back in 1995. Rather than being teleported to a virtual reality, I was in a red and black stereoscopic plane struggling through a few games of Mario’s Tennis.

Flying Ostriches and Other New World Realities Explored David Fambrough
Have you seen the recent Samsung commercial where a curious ostrich suddenly finds itself wearing a Virtual Reality headset solely by accident, and how it is presented with the idea of flight for the first time? Inspired by a new reality, the ostrich runs and flails its wings until one day it magically takes flight. (Yes, many of us TV viewers and the other ostriches watched on in disbelief—captivated.) It’s truly amazing what new worlds of opportunity this technology brings. And it’s not limited to only gaming or enhancing television.

Enterprise Drives Augmented Reality Demand Steven Keeping
While many things that Google comes up with seemingly turn to gold, Google Glass wasn’t one of them. In fact, according to Forbes magazine, the company’s augmented reality (AR) headset will go down in the annals of bad product launches. But the launch of “Glass Enterprise Edition” targets industrial workplaces and boasts several upgrades over the consumer product—including a better camera, faster microprocessor, improved Wi-Fi, and longer battery life—which offer new potential for the technology.
