Excuse me sir is that Gray Poupon?

Someone always has a great idea. It is part of the world around us! In the case of these fun technologies, they are offering a new way of doing the same old things.

  1. Hiuni, a connected telescope. What does that mean? It means that the telescope is connected to your smart device. That means you can use any one of several high celestial applications to control your telescope. Did I mention it has a built-in Astral Camera? You can take pictures of the moon, even when you re asleep!
  2. Ambassador from Waverly Labs. Ambassador is an over the ear voice translation system that allows the wearer to translate any language the system knows about, to a word the wearer speaks. It also allows the wearer to communicate with the person in their native language. If you are a star trek fan, this is nearly the universal translator form the original series!
  3. Erora 3d Scanner – traditionally, we scan in 2 dimensions. With the Erora device or the Occipital Device, you can study in 3 sizes. For objects you want to print on a 3d printer, this is a huge opportunity!

All of these and many other products will soon be available on Amazon.com! If you read this post two or three months after publication, you may see these devices in this amazon ads on the site! One of the impacts of this pandemic is the impact on manufacturing. Larger companies have the advantage of having a “storage” or warehouse system where parts are staged. The reality of two, three, or even four months of no new supplies simply means the company goes down to the best shelves. Small companies and crowdfunded projects don’t have that luxury. The reality of making something new limits them. It means that they are probably going to suffer lost sales and potentially more than that.

These are exciting technologies. They may be the last exciting technologies that ship in 2020.

The other side of the pandemic is when you are worried about tomorrow, creating the next great thing isn’t as high on the priority list.

  2. With these stay at home times, I am sure that a few persons will pop up with a great new technological invention. BTW I answered yes that I am struggling but I made a mistake because I just thought a No answer would pop up. I am not struggling and am healthy as I can be except for that darn cataract…. Nice picture you inserted there… Most of the small businesses here are suffering but a lot of them are slowly reopening with restrictions and protocols that they have to follow. The grocery stores here are also suffering as a fair amount of their staff are testing positive despite the facemasks and plexiglass and gloves etc.

  3. Technology is always advancing. Sounds exciting.
    I am personally ok medically with the situation of COVID.
    But I have worries of relatives, as you know.
    Small businesses are suffering unfortunately.
