Reebok is using robots, a thick gloopy substance, and 3D-drawing techniques to make sneakers. The revolutionary new process does away with the need for traditional molds, offering what it says is a more comfortable fit.
It's more 2.5D, really.
Wing morphing could be the next big innovation in aviation.

Construction Robotics journal launched
"The journal aims to link the robotics research community with researchers fromarchitecture as well as civil-engineering. In doing so it covers the robotic automation of all stages: from pre-fabrication of customized large scale parts over on-site assembly and inspection to refurbishment and demolition.
The journal aims at becoming the central publication platform for the rapidly growing construction robotics community. Beyond accelerating and promoting this new domain the journal will allow architects and civil engineers to publish their work at highest scientific level."

Spatial memory is something we use and need in our everyday lives. Time for morning coffee? We head straight to the kitchen and know where to find the coffee machine and cups. To do this, we require a mental image of ou
Spatializing information and extending the concept of the "mind palace" (vista space + environmental space) - a fundamental study to understand spatial navigation, orientation and memory
For years roboticists have been looking into using softer materials for parts rather than the usual metal and plastic — sometimes even building entirely..

Uber's self-driving taxis will get their first real-world test in Pittsburgh this month, with the semi-autonomous vehicles assigned at random to customers using the company's app. According to
It has begun. A few next possible steps:
. ditch vehicle ownership (optional, but it will become inconvenient - or just a luxury - in the general case to own one): we'll have a range of (self driven) transportation options at our disposal according to our path, time and transportation needs (levels of sharing and/or load capability)
. vehicle speciation: free from the necessity to have a driver (not only as seat and controls, but also viewing necessities), specific-tailored vehicles (terrestrial, airborne, marine and submarine) will flourish
. automated good delivery
. mobile workplaces/homes/leisure places (evolution of the existing ones, but no need to care about the driving and maintaining part now)
