ElliQ has raised $22 million for its social robot aimed at older adults

Posted: 08 Jan 2018 09:24 PM PST

 It’s hard to know what to make of ElliQ at first glance. Maybe it’s the face that I just spent a chunk of the night staring into the longing puppy dog eyes of Sony’s new Aibo robot dog.

 Forget drone delivery. Intel made drones play the piano.

Glowforge is making materials that its laser cutters can automatically recognize

Posted: 08 Jan 2018 07:00 PM PST

 Laser cutting is fun. A lot of fun. You’re putting a thing into a box and firing friggin’ lasers at it to cut or etch whatever your heart desires. It’s a wonderful Venn diagram of science and fire that, if all goes well, ends up with you making something neat. With that said, it can be a bit challenging, particularly when you’re working with a new material for the… Read More
