Rinspeed Microsnap shrinks down for CES 2019

first_img Share your voice Concept Cars Electric Cars Auto Tech Rinspeed MicroSnap is a tiny, do-it-all electric pod Self-driving cars Last year at CES 2018, Rinspeed showed off its wild Snap concept, which blended autonomy with a hot-swappable “skateboard” platform. Rinspeed must have invented a shrink ray in the last year, because at CES 2019, it’s a fair bit smaller.Say hello to the Rinspeed MicroSnap, the latest concept from the wild minds behind the Swiss vehicle design house. Building on last year’s Snap, the MicroSnap shrinks the whole concept down to the size of a Renault Twizy, a European-market electric two-seater. Like its big-boy brethren, the MicroSnap’s platform is meant for fast swapping of the pods on top, which can be used to transport people or goods, depending on need.So why shrink it? Rinspeed says it’s to accommodate the explosion of online ordering, including fresh groceries. By making its concept small enough, the MicroSnap can focus on targeted deliveries that ensure fresh food arrives fresh. That idea works for human transportation, as well, offering direct routes without wasting time dealing with multiple parties.Enlarge ImageIt’s ready for both work and play, just not at the same time. Rinspeed “Customers increasingly want prompt deliveries and many passengers are unwilling to use shared taxis, which have to take time-consuming detours by design,” said Frank M. Rinderknecht, owner of Rinspeed, in a statement.Rinspeed never stops at the design stage with its concepts. The MicroSnap has been thought through from soup to nuts. It can display digital license plates, and the exterior lights use different colors to communicate different concepts to pedestrians. The human-transport pod can track a rider’s health and change the interior lights to improve the mood. There’s a 49-inch curved LED screen offering interaction for riders. There’s even an iris scanner to recognize occupants. It’s also 5G-capable, because of course it is.As you might expect, the Rinspeed MicroSnap is entirely electric. All the wear-and-tear components are relegated to the “skateboard” platform at the bottom, and Rinspeed says that they can be swapped in and out relatively quickly. As for the actual pod swapping itself, Rinspeed also create a robot assembly that uses articulating arms to remove and replace pods depending on what the concept needs to do next. It’s some real pie-in-the-sky stuff, but that’s what CES is all about. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better More From Roadshow 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Self-driving cars: Stay up to date on all the latest news in autonomy.CES 2019: Check out our favorite gadgets from the show in this constantly updating gallery. 0 Post a comment 41 Photos CES 2019 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Tagslast_img read more

Beats answer to Apples new AirPods is arriving in April

first_img $119 Sep 1 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors AirPods 2 vs. AirPods: What’s the difference? See it The big question is price. The person I spoke to didn’t have any details on the cost, but the list price of the PowerBeats3 Wireless is $200. You can actually pick them up for as low as $90 on Amazon and Best Buy has them on sale for $100 off, which is also a pretty good indication that something new is coming.It wouldn’t be surprising if Beats stuck a list price of $250 on the new PowerBeats, although that’s too high and wouldn’t end up being the real street price. In my opinion, they have to cost $200 or less to compete with the AirPods, which are priced from $159 to $199.We’ll update this post as we get more info, but it should be an interesting next few months as more companies, including Apple’s own Beats, put out compelling AirPod alternatives.

A cord-free version of the Beats PowerBeats wireless sports earphones will be announced in April, according to a person close to the retail channel who has previously provided credible information to CNET.We’ve seen this game plan before. After Apple released the AirPods in the fall of 2016, Beats also announced new headphones, including the BeatsX, which incorporated Apple’s latest headphone chip, the W1. Read: Beats Powerbeats Pro full CNET reviewSimilarly, the new true wireless PowerBeats earphones are expected to use Apple’s new H1 chip and have the same always-on Siri voice-assistant as the new AirPods, as well as the other connectivity improvements that the H1 is supposed to deliver. The battery life may also be better than the AirPods. Beats hasn’t had a major headphone release since the Beats Studio3 Wireless, which was updated with the W1 chip and improved sound in June of 2018. The brand is overdue to update its line. The new PowerBeats could serve as an alternative to people who were hoping the new AirPods would include design improvements that would help keep them more securely in more people’s ears, and offer features like better bass and water resistance. Those features will most likely be available in the new PowerBeats. Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? Best Buy • See It Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

Photo: ReutersEaster Day bomb blasts at three Sri Lankan churches and three luxury hotels killed 138 people and wounded more than 400, hospital and police officials said, following a lull in major attacks since the end of the civil war 10 years ago.In just one church, St. Sebastian’s in Katuwapitiya, north of Colombo, more than 50 people had been killed, a police official told Reuters, with pictures showing bodies on the ground, blood on the pews and a destroyed roof.Media reported 25 people were also killed in an attack on a church in Batticaloa in Eastern Province.The three hotels hit were the Shangri-La Colombo, Kingsbury Hotel and Cinnamon Grand Colombo. It was unclear whether there were any casualties in the hotels.Nine foreigners were among the dead, the officials said.There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attacks in a country which was at war for decades with Tamil separatists until 2009 during which bomb blasts in the capital were common.Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe called a national security council meeting at his home for later in the day.One of the explosions was at St Anthony’s Church in Kochcikade, Colombo.”Our people are engaged in evacuating the casualties,” a source with the bomb squad said.St. Sebastian’s church posted pictures of destruction inside the church on its Facebook page, showing blood on pews and the floor, and requested help from the public.Sri Lankan military officials stand guard in front of the St. Anthony`s Shrine, Kochchikade church after an explosion in Colombo, Sri Lanka on 21 April 2019.
