Amazon is showing off its latest robots in use at its sorting center in Denver, Colorado. Their orange Pegasus robots are 2 feet-high and 3 feet-wide, and are designed specifically to swiftly sort packages and get them on their way.
Package theft a problem many of us have experienced with the increase of home deliveries we get these days. Engineer Mark Rober is no stranger to this. A shipment had been delivered, but when checking his porch there was nothing.
During the holiday season, people check the status of their packages more than ever, hoping they will arrive fast and on time. That is why the US Postal Service is testing something new this year. It is called “The Most Wonderful Ornament.”
We feature tons of cool stuff from Japan on Technabob over the years, but one of the big deterrents to picking up some fun and unusual gadgets from the other side of the Pacific Ocean has been the cost of shipping them around the world.
Here in the U.S., the biggest two shopping days of the year are Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as people start to shift into the holiday gift-giving spirit after Thanksgiving. In China, an offbeat holiday called Singles Day has become an insanely popular time for shopping.
Amazon has announced a new service further proving that you can buy just about anything from the massive online retailer. The new services called Amazon Wine, and as you can imagine, the service will ship wine to certain states.
I think I’m like most people out there in that I like shopping online, but I hate waiting for stuff to show up. Shipping takes too long and more often than not, many places don’t ship the same day you place the order, and express shipping can really add up.
There are plenty of cool docks for your iOS devices, but I have to say that this one from RockAppleWood is certainly unique. This dock is even sustainable, and it looks very interesting, since it can dock not just one device, but an iPad and your iPhone/iPod at the same time.
NotebookReview forum member chrixx ordered something from HP. He got what he asked for, but he wasn’t prepared for this:
chrixx claims that that’s a 10kg (22 lbs) wooden pallet. See what I’m getting at? He orders a tiny thing, something that should only weigh “barely 300g”, and he ends up with this monstrosity: “…I had to drag this pellet [sic] from my apartment lobby, into the lift, out of the lift, into my home, cut it open, remove the contents and discard all the junk packaging.”
This new device was commissioned by the United States Postal Service in order to hunt down some of the inefficiencies in their mail delivery process. Developed by California’s TrackingTheWorld, the gadget is slipped inside of a letter, and tracks the precise journey of an individual piece of mail.
