mid air bulletTruth can be stranger than fiction at times, but there are moments when fiction does inspire some amazing technological advancements in the real world.

Zilch. Nada. That can prove to be rather frustrating at times, especially if you tend to walk around during a conversation. Is there a way to remedy such a situation?

derby pawWhile we have seen the power of the mind demonstrate the ability to control bionic parts such as hands and arms, things are not all that complex when it comes to our four legged friends, or furry kids as some people use for their term of endearment when it comes to our canine buddies. Derby happened to be born with deformations in both of his front legs, which in turn made movement extremely difficult (and painful to watch), not to mention being impossible to actually chase down a rabbit or ball.

Amazon is well known to be the delivery service king, where they have also explored the possibility of making deliveries of your online order through the clever use of drones. Having said that, the company is not one to rest on their laurels, and they have just introduced a brand new service that they call Prime Now – which will allow Prime members to place an order for “tens of thousands” of “daily essentials” – and yet can look forward to an immediate delivery, now how about that when it comes to efficiency?
