Driverless Cars and Scalpels / Hong Kong 3, ABC Far North, Austereo

singaporeSingapore is set to take the driverless revolution up a notch, by this week announcing it will put driverless public transport electric pods on the road by the end of this year.

We’re not quite sure where they’ll travel, but we do know they’ll hold 24 passengers each and be capable of transporting up to 8,000 passengers per hour and this seemed like a great conversation starter for my regular on air catch ups with Hong Kong 3’s Phil Whelan, ABC Far North’s Kier Shorey and  Austereo’s Anthony Tilli.

Talking driverless and electric also let us look at China’s newest auto maker LeSee, a voice activated autonomous car, that could give Tesla a run for its money. It boasts a complete LED interior that changes the display according to anticipated drivers needs, has swapped out the front exterior lights for a display bar that can project lights, indicator signals and much more.screen shot 2016-04-20 at 9.42.00 am

We also took a look at the newest tech for Surgeons in the operating theatre with a “smart-knife” scalpel that can distinguish between healthy tissue and cancerous cells and an ingenious New Jersey student who realigned his teeth by 3D printed his own orthodontic braces.

As always great chats, so have a listen now…
