People are talking about Boosted, the electric skateboarding company that just came out with the world’s lightest electric vehicle called Boosted Board —apparently this company will take over the world.

Fridays are happy days. This coming friday will be even happier, especially for our ears, because Spotify’s rolling out Release Radar —a new hyper-personalized playlist that may be better than Discovery Weekly.

Got a cool idea you want to turn into a reality? Be mindful: sometimes being first to market doesn’t mean success.

Sensitive robots are the next big thing. By sensitive, I mean robots that just get us. What does a more sensitive, empathetic robot sound like? This MIT-born marching learning startup is teaching chatbots real empathy
