Your personal avatar
Body Labs, a startup that?s recently been taken over by Amazon, is able to develop a fully realistic 3D body scan, that goes well beyond matching up points on a body eg it allows you to add motion to the 3D body model to see how certain fabrics or materials might move or wear in the real world. Users can upload their body scan and share it with companies who need it for a fitting. Companies can use these avatars to customize products. https://techcrunch.com/2017/10/03/amazon-has-acquired-3d-body-model-startup-body-labs-for-50m-70m/

A bin than cleans the sea
Seabin is an Australian invention. It's a floating debris interception device designed to be installed in the water of marinas, yacht clubs, ports and any water body with a calm environment and services available. It's installed in a specific debris problem area in the marina on a floating dock and the wind and the currents bring the debris directly to the Seabin. The catch bag can hold up to 12Kgs of debris. Trials of these Seabins are being conducted around the world, most recently in the UK at Portsmouth Harbour. https://www.engadget.com/2017/10/11/seabin-portsmouth-harbour/

A salad for lunch from Sally the robot
You use a touch screen to place your order choosing from a menu of recipes or designing your own. The machine calculates the number of calories per salad and drops the veggies into a bowl in less than a minute. There is less human contact with the food as the salads are assembled out of precut vegetables stored in refrigerated canisters hence minimizing food safety concerns. Plans are being made for the robots to produce healthy meals in convenience stores, airports, hotels, hospitals and universities. www.chowbotics.com

A robot that can pick the ripest berries
In a greenhouse in Belgium, a small robot moves through rows of strawberries growing on trays suspended above the ground, using machine vision to locate ripe, flawless berries, then reaching up with a 3D-printed hand to gently pluck each berry and place it in a basket for sale. If it feels that a berry isn?t ready for harvest, the robot estimates the date it will be ready for it to return and pick it. It?s a test of a system that Octinion, the R&D company building the robot, believes could replace traditional strawberry farming and harvesting. https://www.fastcompany.com/40473583/this-strawberry-picking-robot-gently-picks-the-ripest-berries-with-its-robo-hand?
