Segway Robot

Mixing powerful robotics with the company's rock-solid mobility platform, the Segway Robot has as much potential as it does personality. It's powered by an Intel Atom processor running a version of Android, letting you create your own apps and use cases. It uses an array of cameras — one for depth sensing, one for tracking, and one for normal video/still photography — to complete tasks like move from room to room, track and follow you when you're on foot, and other things that haven't been thought of yet. It has a built-in interface for hardware extensions, letting you add things like arms or tools as you go, or you could just use it as a plain old Segway. But where's the fun in that?

  • Amazon Prime Air Drone Delivery

    It's the stuff of science fiction: being able to order nearly anything you want and have it delivered to your door in less time than it takes to finish an episode of Game of Thrones. Yet thanks to Amazon Prime Air Drone Delivery, it may well become a reality. This service will use autonomous drones to deliver packages weighing up to five pounds in 30 minutes or less to addresses as far as 10 miles away by relying on "sense and avoid" technology to keep away from obstacles both on the ground and in the air. No word yet on when you'll be able to start scheduling gadget airdrops, but if this Jeremy Clarkson-hosted video is any indication, expect it to happen sooner rather than later.
