Drones, and DJI specifically, have come a long way in the last few years. Flight distances, telemetry, obstacle avoidance, silky smooth gimbals, high quality cameras, and size reduction are just a few of the areas that have improved massively. DJI has just addressed two more issues in an effort to perfect the quadcopter with their latest DJI Mavic Pro Platinum. The Mavic Pro Platinum has an 11% gain in flight time (30 minutes) and a 60% reduction in noise (4dB less). The

Panasonic envisions a future where the refrigerator will come to you when you call it over. “Bring me a cold beer”… and along comes the Panasonic robotic fridge. Originally intended for folks with mobility issues, I imagine this will quickly land in lazy peoples homes as well.

Robotic vacuum cleaners have been around for quite some time. There are ones for the house and pool, and now… one for your large boat or yacht. The KeelCrab is the first R.O.V for the autonomous cleaning of your boats hull and keel. A clean hull is a big deal. It can reduce...

Specifically it mentioned selling to Amazon, Apple, and/or Google. This assumes they are even buyers. Let me back-up a bit. Apparently the newer iRobot Roomba’s scan and map the inside of your home.

Well in a truly douchey fashion iRobot is now pondering...

A Junior at Stanford University, Joshua Browder, has developed a chatbot called DoNotPay that uses artificial intelligence to dispense free legal assistance. While I am not sure I would call this AI, more like a templated search engine, it is pretty neat. Joshua claims that DoNotPay has helped people defeat more than 375,000 parking tickets in about two years. Not sure how he knows this information. ...

For the people making money by driving cars and trucks – enjoy it, while it lasts. The Einride T-Pod Self-Driving Truck can drive on highways in full autonomous mode and then be remotely controlled for urban driving. Range is 124 miles and load capacity is 15 pallets or 20 tons of goods. All of this in just 23-feet thanks...

Let me start off by professing my love of my Ergo Auto Pet Feeder 2000GS (you can read that review here). While it is close to perfect, it isn’t “smart” and doesn’t have remote feeding. With that said it does the job just fine and hasn’t failed me for over 15 years. That says something. Now on to the RolliPet Smart Pet Feeder ($139)...

This chubby little robotic fish is the world’s first bionic wireless underwater drone. This fish drone is named BIKI and it has a 4k camera, a wireless controller, a Smartphone app for control, and a battery life of up to 150 minutes. The BIKI isn’t going to complete an deep sea missions but it can dive to 196 feet and will even come to the surface when its battery is running low. Currently the BIKI Fish Drone is living on Kickstarter with an estimated price of
