1. Northrop X-47B Stealth Drone
This stealthy X-47B unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is the size of a fighter jet, and will be taking off and landing from the deck of an aircraft carrier. This is an unusual overhead view of the scary looking plane, which was mistaken for a UFO last month. When will it be ready for battle? Unknown. It’s a concept plane so far, but as you can see, it’s in the midst of flight testing.
If you scanned across the tech and gadget world this week, you’d think the future had already arrived. We found so many great products and devices, it was difficult to narrow them down to our Top 10 Tech This Week.
But we persevered, finding conveyances that roll on the ground and fly through the air, a gaming mouse that looks like it might take off at any moment, new software from Google that makes us feel like were flying in space and a bulbous car that was once fiction that’s now reality. We even found a brand new view of a scary, lethal and stealthy weapon for your perusal.
Even everyday objects didn’t escape the futuristic treatment, including a USB cable that shows you which direction its data is flowing, a 55-inch OLED TV that seemed like a fantasy just a couple of weeks ago but now has a more well-defined arrival date, and then there’s the craziest-looking lamp we’ve ever seen — built by a printer, of all things.
So strap yourself in and prepare to be impressed, amused, amazed and perhaps even filled with want — as we bring you the latest edition of our Top 10 Tech This Week.
Here’s last week’s Top 10 Tech.
