google logoGoogle is no stranger when it comes to patents, but it looks as though they are interested in doing more than the status quo. In fact, the technology company with search and advertising as its bread and butter, has taken the bold move to launch a new portal – which is definitely experimental in nature, of course, in order to enable interested patent holders to actually sell their patents to the company, now how about that?

astrogroIf one were to go on a long voyage, a very important aspect to think of would be having enough supplies – you can have the best crew on board, but without the basic sustenance of food, you would only be traveling in a “coffin”. Having said that, a NASA challenge has resulted in the AstroGro, which happens to be a space garden pod that has been specially developed in order to address the issue of not having enough food on long, drawn out manned missions in space. AstroGro will fall back on 3D printing, using it to produce a system which can be replicated and modified even when one is in orbit.

livestream-droneIt is not every day that one gets to play with a drone, and most of the time, drones can be used to capture footage from a nice, vantage point of view which cannot really be done traditionally. This opens up new horizons when it comes to creating some really stunning photos, but at the same time, privacy issues also abound since the boundaries of its usage become borderless in one sense. You might want to be careful the next time you hear the hum of a drone near you, since it might actually be a sick voyeur who is checking out on what you’re wearing. Having said that, more regulation is required, but back to the topic at hand – this particular drone works differently from the rest since it has the ability to stream live video to YouTube, now how about that?

apple-watchimpactI am quite sure that the dust has more or less settled concerning the highly sought after Apple Watch, and it looks as though there has been no shortage of torture tests for the Apple Watch, be it in the kitchen or done in a scientific manner.
