THE FUTURE OF DRIVING

We know it seems like every second week there’s some new talk about self-driving cars and environmentally friendly electric cars, and how much more can there possibly be to talk about? Well, we’re right there with you, but we couldn’t let this go by without giving it a mention.

The Mercedes F-015 Luxury is the car you’re thinking of when you fantasize about what kind of car we’ll all be driving in 2050. The self-driving car allows its passengers to enjoy the ride inside thanks to the windows that double as computer screens, so you can catch up on emails and such on your way into work each morning. The hydrogen fuel cell will allow passengers to travel up to 685 miles on a single charge, while the lights outside will inform pedestrians when it is safe for them to cross in front of the car, even going so far as to light up a zebra crossing!

While the car was built as a one-off to show what Mercedes are actually capable of, this is the still a pretty fantastic glimpse into the not-too-distant future.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
