The world of tech moves quickly.
This time last month we had no idea that we’d be able to take a spin class whilst commuting to work, that there was such a thing as a ‘new form of light’ or that the future would offer us in-fridge delivery services.
A lot can happen in just 30 days. That’s why we took a break from creating bespoke apps for events to bring you May’s most eccentric and exciting news from the world of tech.
Cardboard Speakers. That is All.
These speakers are made from 100% recyclable materials – mainly cardboard. They even offer you the template for free so you can get to work and make use of your old shoeboxes. Do we get a Blue Peter badge for doing this?
A New Form of Light Was Discovered
It’s possible to discover new forms of light? Apparently so. Irish physicists have discovered this new light form that could have huge implications for fiber optics and data transfer.
Toyota and Segway Got Awesome about Wheelchairs
The Segway iBot wheelchair first appeared just over 5 years ago, but the timing wasn’t great and the market didn’t embrace it. Now, Segway have teamed up with Toyota to add the latest technology to the device and re-release it. The chair can walk up steps and change height so that wheelchair users can conduct a conversation at eye level.
An App Offered to Stalk Us
You can submit an application and request to be followed by ‘an unseen companion, someone that watches, someone that sees you, someone that cares’.
Oh good. So not creepy at all then.

Driverless Pods Came Out of Our Dreams and Landed Singapore
These pods will be on the street of Singapore before the end of the year. And life just got that little bit better.
The World’s Fastest Helicopter was Invented
That moment when your helicopter just won’t go fast enough. We’ve all been there! Or not actually. Perhaps we were too busy building apps for events. We imagine it’s annoying though.
This Noob Discovered a New Species of Dinosaur
Tech = geek and geek = dinosaur love…Meet Spiclypeus, Noodle Towers’ new favourite dinosaur species. The 76 million year old bones were discovered by a novice fossil hunter on his first excavation dig. If he ever wants a job building bespoke apps for events…
