3D PRINTING

Cetus3D recently launched their super minimalist, high resolution 3D printer on Kickstarter. The very cool thing is that early birds can pick this up for only $199. Would love to try one out.

FUTURE FARMING

CNH Industrial unveiled their autonomous tractor concept, basically freeing up farmers, and removing more future jobs.

VIRTUAL REALITY

Some MIT students have been testing out giving VR headsets to seniors living in a Brookdale care home, and it's blowing their minds. Pretty cool.

DRONES

Youtube user Jopie Wise uploaded a cool video the other day showing off his custom built drone, with a frame made out of an orange box. Surprisingly it flies pretty well, and it can even carry emergency bread and pastries.

MIXED REALITY

HoloFriends created a floor is lava game using the Microsoft Hololens. I'm definitely excited to see more applications that can transform the physical world into other things.

PiBakery released a great little app that allows you to easily setup Raspbian on your Raspberry Pi, automating things like network settings, installing programs, running recurrent scripts and more.
