Supersonic commercial flights, driverless electric ride-shares, and Adidas solar powered headphones
There’s new signs of the return of supersonic commercial flights. American Airlines has ordered 20 of the ultra high speed jets. The deal with ‘Boom Supersonic’ hopes to have the planes ready to fly by 2029. Boom struck a deal with United last year. Lyft and car company Motional are rolling out a new fleet of driverless electric vehicles in Las Vegas. The ride sharing company is planning to launch fully driverless service in the city next year. They have been testing autonomous ride-sharing in Las Vegas since 2018. Eventually, they plan to offer the service nationwide. There’s new solar powered, wireless headphones from Adidas. They can be charged with any light source, natural or artificial and they provide 80 hours of playback time. They’re available next week for about $230.
