An electric plane that gets you to places faster, at less cost and with fewer emissions
A?Boeing-backed ?start-up is planning to put a hybrid-electric aircraft into commercial service within five years. Zunum Aero's 12-seat plane will carry battery packs and a small fuel reserve for a back-up engine. They aim to get you to places faster, at less cost, with planes that are quieter and have far lower emissions, as well as connect thousands of communities that don't currently have regular air service. Their first model will fly about 1130 kilometres, far enough to ferry travellers from Boston to Washington or Silicon Valley to Los Angeles. http://zunum.aero/

A robot that can pick the ripest berries
In a greenhouse in Belgium, a small robot moves through rows of strawberries growing on trays suspended above the ground, using machine vision to locate ripe, flawless berries, then reaching up with a 3D-printed hand to gently pluck each berry and place it in a basket for sale. If it feels that a berry isn?t ready for harvest, the robot estimates the date it will be ready for it to return and pick it. It?s a test of a system that Octinion, the R&D company building the robot, believes could replace traditional strawberry farming and harvesting. https://www.fastcompany.com/40473583/this-strawberry-picking-robot-gently-picks-the-ripest-berries-with-its-robo-hand?
