How do you add a fourth dimension to a VR video game?? Scent!
Capcom has developed a candle that is intended to make playing Resident Evil 7: Biohazard on PlayStation VR even more immersive. At $14 it’s also (obviously) a great ancillary to boost sales for all their future VR video games!
Tesla is safer!
Last week we reported on a Tesla dashboard cam that recorded an automated breaking, perhaps saving lives. Now the U.S. Department of Transportation has closed an investigation a collision that killed a driver using Tesla Autopilot and they concluded that installing Autopilot in your car prevents crashes—by an astonishing 40 percent!! So while the first reactions and effects for Tesla after this crash last year were highly negative with many losing some faith in autonomous cars, the investigation should surely lead to a regained and strengthened faith for Tesla.
A robot around your heart?
Researchers from Harvard University and Boston Children’s Hospital have developed a breakthrough “soft robot” device that might improve your odds of surviving a heart attack. Unlike mechanical devices inserted into heart valves, it’s wrapped externally around the heart.

Thank you China! (Unintentionally?)
Trump has been “trumping” away the past days and among MANY other bad decisions is planning to ramp up coal based energy. Meanwhile, China which is the biggest consumer of coal has suspended plans and production projects of 85 coal power plants. Fantastic, and thank you China for taking a step in the right direction for the environment. Only, they didn’t do it for the environment. In China its more about smog and health risks and not having too much capacity. I say thank you anyway!
