China-based eVTOL developer EHang has their latest project, an intelligent firefighting variant of its 216 autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV), called the 216F. This model was designed specially for high-rise buildings, as it’s capable of carrying up to 150 liters of foam and six fire extinguisher bombs in a single trip.

The first-generation Motorola RAZR foldable smartphone made its debut on November 14, 2019 and released on February 6, 2020. It’s designed to resemble its predecessor and features a horizontally foldable screen, but the successor will add a few new features. Aesthetically, the edges appear to be more rounded and the front trimming is silver this time around. The clamshell design conceals a 6.2-inch flexible P-OLED internal display and just like the original, there’s still a 2.7-inch “Quick View” screen.

Apple Central World, its second and largest retail location in Thailand, has opened in the heart of Ratchaprasong, Bangkok’s iconic intersection. Aside from its stunning architecture, it features the first-ever all-glass design, housed under a cantilevered Tree Canopy roof. As you step inside, guests can traverse between two levels using a spiral staircase that wraps around a timber core, or by riding a unique cylindrical elevator clad in mirror-polished stainless steel.

Batman’s Batmobile made its first official appearance in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939), where it appeared to just be a normal-looking red vehicle. Since then, there have been dozens of different variations, but all of them have a prominent bat motif, typically in the form of wing-shaped tailfins. It has evolved to being the most technologically advanced crime-fighting asset in Batman’s arsenal. Automotive designer Encho Enchev puts his own creative twist on the Batmobile, with many supercar influences.
Jaguar Land Rover collaborated with researchers at University of Cambridge to develop a contactless touchscreen that will not only help keep drivers’ eyes on the road, but also reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses. It’s officially called ‛predictive touch’ and this technology utilizes artificial intelligence as well as sensors to determine a user’s intended target on the display. This could be for directions on the satellite navigation, temperature controls or just changing songs on Spotify, all without touching a button.
