Tech shorts one: Cyborg Suit (HAL)
Competition: Military Robot Suit
Still being researched, the military is spending 2.9 million to make a robotic suit, not just pieces of tech on your body but a piece of clothing
Tech Shorts Two: The Martin Jet Pack
This company rents three different water-thrusting pieces of tech on a private beach in Miami, Florida. They are the jetpack, flyboard, and a hoverboard.
Tech Shorts Three: Graphene
Aerogel is the lightest material known to man. It is heat-resistant and is a supercapacitor (like graphene) and is almost fully transparent.
Tech Shorts Four: Vertical Farming
Hydroponics is when you grow a plant without soil. If given the perfect amount of nutrients, they will grow to the best they can.
Tech Shorts Five: Toyota Mirai
Competition: Tesla Model S
This Tesla car can accelerate extremely fast. From 0 to 60 mph 3.1 seconds! Tesla has also strategically placed supercharge stations where it charges your car in minutes instead of hours. It can run up to 260 miles per charge.
Tech Shorts Six: Willow Glass
Competition: Iris Glass
A TV with this glass can be more than ½ times thinner! It has better light transmission and more!
Tech Shorts Seven: Apple Watch
Competition: Sony Smart Watch
This is barely comparable to the Apple Watch but it does have some good sides. Third-Party manufacturers can make “cases” and also it is easier to see in sunlight.
