Pune-based Chizel wows architects and builders with 3D printed ‘smart models’ | Property TECH | Scoop.it

Chizel Prints, a Pune-based venture has taken 3D printing mainstream by applying its technology in architecture, real estate and marketing. It delivers miniature, scaled down 3D printed models of residential buildings, apartment complexes, shopping malls, bungalows, row-houses, townships, institutional complex, resorts, industrial models, interior design models, commercial and hospitality structures, both single and multi-coloured, all equipped with superior automation, wireless integration application and electronics.

Clarence Wong, MSRE's insight:

It's exciting to see the different directions 3D printing is going.  Chizel Prints has now combined elements of building information modeling (BIM), smart cities, and 3D printing to create 3D printed models of smart cities.  These scaled down 'smart models' are wireless and simulation can be controlled via mobile app.  More importantly, they help reduce project lead time to nearly 50%. Talk about efficiency.

Wal-Mart Already Has a Thriving Online Grocery Business, Just Not in the U.S.

Wal-Mart Already Has a Thriving Online Grocery Business, Just Not in the U.S. | Property TECH | Scoop.it
Watch out, Amazon.
Clarence Wong, MSRE's insight:

With all the focus on Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods, Walmart has quietly developed a successful online grocery business in China, capable of bringing fresh produce from its shelves to the homes of consumers within one hour.


To accomplish this challenge, Walmart has created a network of chilled mini-warehouses, used artificial intelligence (AI) to tailor inventories, and crowdsourced delivery people to bring fresh groceries to consumers.


By year end, Walmart will have one-hour delivery available to consumers within 1.9-mile radii of 161 Walmarts in China. There are also plans to add smaller freestanding last-mile “dark stores” outside of these 1.9-mile radii.


Could a similar business model be adopted and one day in the U.S.?

FedEx pickup/drop-off services now available across 7,500 Walgreens locations

FedEx pickup/drop-off services now available across 7,500 Walgreens locations | Property TECH | Scoop.it
This holiday season, 80% of the U.S. population is within nine minutes of a FedEx hold location, FedEx reported.
Clarence Wong, MSRE's insight:

Competitors of Amazon need to evolve and adapt to stay relevant or be left in the dusk. FedEx has teamed up with Walgreens to install over 7,500 pick-up / drop off locker stations within retail stores in all 50 states in order to compete with Amazon lockers.


Walgreens on the other hand is beefing up its mail delivery and pharmacy operations support, so it can compete on pharmacy deliveries with Amazon (it recently received wholesale pharmacy licenses in 12 states) and also be able to focus on providing trusted service to clients at stores.

Amazon Goes Head-To-Head With Pharmacy Retail Chains

Amazon Goes Head-To-Head With Pharmacy Retail Chains | Property TECH | Scoop.it

“Pharmacy retail chains are preparing for hefty competition and the threat of declining foot traffic after discovering Amazon has launched an exclusive line of over-the-counter health products.”

Clarence Wong, MSRE's insight:

Traditional drug stores and big-box stores like Walmart/Target have always offered low cost generic brand medicine, but Amazon is now offering even lower cost alternatives through its Amazon Basic Care over-the-counter health product line.


By undercutting drug stores and big-box stores in price for generic over-the-counter medicine and also offering the name brands, Amazon is giving its customers even more reason to continue ordering through them for daily-needs products.


Until Amazon starts to offer prescription medicine, drug stores have the upper hand on this, but they still need to be on the defensive. So it’s no wonder CVS and Walgreens are teaming up with health care companies Aetna and UnitedHealth respectively to help maintain foot traffic.

Bill Gates firm buys Arizona land for $80 million to create 'smart city' | Property TECH | Scoop.it
A real estate investment firm owned by Bill Gates recently bought land in Arizona for $80 million to be developed into a “smart city.”
Clarence Wong, MSRE's insight:

Bill Gates recently purchased 25,000 acres for $80 million to develop a new smart city called Belmont in Tonopah, 50 miles west of Phoenix. While Columbus, OH, winner of the 2016 Smart City Challenge, would be the first existing U.S. city to be upgraded to a ‘smart city’, Belmont would be the ‘smart city’ built from the ground up in the US.


Belmont plans call for smart infrastructure, autonomous vehicles as well as upgraded manufacturing and distribution networks. The CRE portion will comprise of 80,000 residential units, in addition to 470 acres for public schools and 3,800 acres designated for offices, commercial buildings and retail.
