An electric flying car
Electric cars are on the way and now electric flying cars are as well. Lilium is among several companies looking to usher in an era of Jetsons-type flying cars. Lilium?s vehicle is an electric jet, designed to take off and land vertically, like a helicopter. They are planning their first manned flight in 2019, with a rollout of commercial air taxis by 2025. www.lilium.com

3D printing to produce car and truck parts
Daimler, the world's largest truck manufacturer, will use three-dimensional printing (3D) to produce spare parts, the latest example of how digital technologies are radically reshaping automotive manufacturing and its supply chain. Rather than shipping vehicle parts across the globe, carmakers including BMW and Volkswagen?are experimenting with so-called additive manufacturing. This relies on sending a digital blueprint of a component to a printer which creates parts by using lasers to melt powders into plastic, glass, metals and even ceramics. https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/279090

A new way to find gold
Compared to existing gold analysis methods which can takes days to get a result, the PhotonAssay delivers accurate results in just a few minutes without generating the toxic waste products which have been problematic in other analysis systems. This new method supported by the CSIRO comes from Australia which is still a major gold producer following the gold rushes of the 1800's. https://blog.csiro.au/finding-gold-rush/
