This week on Txchnologist, we got a glimpse of the future of flight. First, we saw the next competitor for a personal consumer aircraft; an 18-propeller multirotor vehicle created by a German startup, which took it for a series of brief test flights last month. Then, is Elon Musk to Henry Ford as a spacecraft is to the personal car? It looks like the comparison might hold based on an article that examined what Musk’s private space travel company, SpaceX, has been doing in the realm of advanced manufacturing.
Now, we’re bringing you the science, technology and innovation news we’ve been following this week.
Since a very young age, Sina Bahram, a Ph.D. student at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, has been blind.
“I did have a little bit more usable vision as a kid than I do now,” said Bahram.
But being blind hasn’t slowed him down. He’s a Ph.D. student and president of a consulting company. He has learned to feel his way through life. But there’s still one thing that’s a challenge to navigate: traffic.
