Sports tech startup, Form, has just released the first-ever augmented reality (AR)-enabled swim goggles, introducing seamless fitness tracking to the pool. Developed in partnership with Olympic swimmers, the goggles can reach a depth of up to 32 feet. Attached to the side of one lens, Form?s computer sits embedded in a small black box, enabling swimmers to display performance metrics in real-time such as total distance, stroke count, total calories and split time. Using accelerometer data, the goggles? onboard processor can even detect stroke types, additionally noting when swimmers turn around or take a break.
Optimus Ride, autonomous vehicle (AV) start-up, has become the public AV offering in New York City, providing autonomous shuttle service in Brooklyn?s Navy Yard. While carrying both a safety driver and software operator, and restricted to a 1.1-mile loop of private roads, the shuttle service is already expected to serve over 16,000 passengers per month. Lowering consumers' barrier to use, Optimus has even made the service free, running between the NYC Ferry stop and the Yard?s Cumberland Gate to embed itself in the daily routine of thousands of commuters.
