Designed to solve the problem of needing a car or truck to move packages through the urban landscape, the Gita Cargo Carrying Robot is your own personal delivery system. Measuring 26 inches tall and capable of carrying 40 pounds at speeds of up to 22 mph, Gita is primarily designed to accompany you without notice, letting you walk, jog, run, or bike to your destinations while it follows dutifully behind. In addition to simply following you, it can also move by itself on a pre-mapped schedule, picking up lunch, packages, and anything else you need while you focus on more pressing matters. Created by the company behind the iconic Vespa, it also looks right at home on city sidewalks.
We all know robots are likely to replace many jobs over the coming years. If the Cafe X Coffee Robot is any indication, your barista's might be among them. Built in partnership with leading automatic coffee machine company WMF, the Cafe X is a fully enclosed affair, delivering perfectly-brewed drinks on demand. You can place your order at one of the touchscreens at the cafe or ahead of time via an app, and simply enter a four-digit order number to have the Mitsubishi robotic arm grab your cup. Currently open in San Francisco's Metreon, it offers drinks developed hand-in-hand with local roasters AKA, Verve, and Peet's.
It may not seem like it, but it's been over a year since David Bowie passed. The singer, songwriter, and actor was as innovative as he was beloved. These David Bowie Royal Mail Stamps celebrate his career by recreating the album artwork from Hunky Dory, Heroes, Aladdin Sane, Let's Dance, Earthling, and Blackstar in mailable form. A variety of packages are available, from single stamps and fan sheets to a set of all six stamps individually mounted in a black frame.
Thanks to a robust, timeless design that leaves their aluminum antenna exposed, the Master & Dynamic MW50 Wireless On-Ear Headphones offer range to match their sound. They work as far as 100 feet away from the Bluetooth source, while producing outstanding audio thanks to 40mm beryllium drivers. They charge over USB-C, offer 16-hours of battery life, and with a body that's 30% smaller and lighter than their big brother MW60, are ideal for on-the-go use. Available in silver metal with black or brown leather accents and ear pads.

Next year, NASA's astronauts will begin riding in a new spacecraft: the Boeing Starliner. The ship isn't the only thing that's new. The Boeing Starliner Spacesuit is the cutting-edge compliment to the new craft, bringing more safety and comfort. Thanks to advances in materials, it's 10 pounds lighter than the exit and reentry suits worn aboard the space shuttle, with the ability to let water vapor out yet keep air in. The new helmet and visor are integrated, the gloves are touchscreen-friendly to accommodate modern controls, and the joints are more flexible, letting the brave men and women who wear it move more freely.
