The latest developer preview for Android O doesn’t change a lot at first glance, but it does have a handful of user-facing changes that are actually pretty nice. One that I’ve noticed as trying out DP3 on is a constant notification telling me which background apps are running at any given time.

Tomorrow’s Cars Won’t Just Drive Themselves. They’ll Feel Different by https://is.gd/9Zp6QD

Look inside a modern car, and you’ll see many of the same materials that formed the earliest automobiles. Leather, wood, metal, and cloth convey a sense of luxury, a connection to the beloved way things were. You may see synthetic stuff too, materials born of the jet and space ages.

As the auto industry adapts to a smartphone-enabled world and looks to the potentially radical changes offered by autonomy, sharing, and alternative powertrains, what you touch and feel inside the car has once again drawn the attention of the world’s designers.

Consumers have other concerns. Vegan leather substitutes, fast-growing and readily renewable woods like bamboo or banana leaf, and recycled fabric blends cater to a newly popular interest in sustainability.

Imagine a future when you can tell your coffee machine to make coffee with the sound of your voice or tell the lights to switch on in any room of your house just by talking.

That kind of automation once required hundreds of dollars of investment in new gear, but Google is bringing that future to everyone.

The recent release of the tech company’s first open source hardware project is opening doors for ‘makers’ the world over looking to create their own voice assistants, just like Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. Google’s Voice Kit comprises a natural language recognizer powered by a Raspberry Pi that can be paired with the Google Assistant to create your own personal Amazon Echo, all in the size of a small cube.
