Makani’s enormous “energy kite” is a new type of turbine that generates electricity by flying against the wind in acrobatic loops while tethered to the ground. As the kite flies around, rotors on the wing spin as the wind moves through them. The power generated on board travels down the tether to the grid. The design allows for the system to be installed in parts of the world where regular wind turbines aren’t economically viable or physically possible. The latest prototype can generate enough energy to power up to 300 homes.

Unfortunately, your Car Cam Dually isn’t going to help your case much as it simultaneously records both you in your seat and the action out front.

Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, you’ll probably have a hard time getting your hands on one. And yes, Android did it first. But the iPhone X’s edge-to-edge screen and facial recognition system will undoubtedly set a new standard for phones to come. For one, Apple’s Face ID system, even despite the security concerns, is already being used in more creative ways than Samsung’s facial identification tech. Third-party apps like Snapchat and Warby Parker are taking advantage of the iPhone X’s face-mapping technology to project realistic masks over your eyes or select glasses that suit your face’s shape.
