Deep learning AI systems often make decisions inside a black box – meaning humans can’t readily understand why a neural-network chose one solution over another. This exists because machines can perform millions of tests in short amounts of time, come up with a solution, and move on to performing millions more tests to come up with a better solution.

Amazon is a modern marvel. No other company in history has made the complexity of finding, buying, and shipping seem so simple. It can get just about anything in the world to your doorstep, much of it in just a couple days or even hours.

But for all its brilliance, Amazon has had trouble getting past that doorstep. It has perfected everything except for that last foot—call it the Last Foot Problem.

And it is a problem. With people now buying tons of stuff online, including pricey things like electronics and clothes, the theft of packages has become a widespread problem. A 2015 survey found 23 million people reported having packages taken from their doorstep.

Junction City has all the trappings of an Iraqi town: a brightly painted mosque; shops adorned with Arabic script; the occasional humvee or tank rumbling by. But you won’t find it anywhere near Mosul. It’s a stage set at Fort Irwin, in the middle of California’s Mojave Desert, where US troops simulate fighting insurgents.

It’s the little things that can make my day just a wee bit better — starting it with a hot cup of coffee, catching a sunny moment on an otherwise rainy day, and kisses from my overly affectionate dog Spencer are a few things that come to mind. If my coffee tastes bitter, it just keeps on raining and Spencer is having a “meh” day himself, I’m glad I can always rely on the power of art and creativity to cheer me up.

If Dieter Rams designed a production floor, it might look something like this.

It’s rare that you’d compare a factory to a fine yacht, but at Vitsœ’s new Royal Leamington Spa factory, the two are synonymous.

The Enko doesn’t look or behave like any shoe you own. The immediate differentiating factor is the compression-spring shock absorbers on either side. Built with two modes, one for walking and the other for running, the Enko shoes work like normal shoes in the walk mode, but the minute you flip to the running mode, the spring gets engaged and adds a certain bounce to your step, making it easier on your joints when you go for long runs. Accompanied with a set of springs that are calibrated to the wearer’s weight, the user can put in the spring that suits them and then go on a run or jog that feels so effortless because your feet literally bounce off the floor, making it feel like you’re walking on air!

The Dutch company Aectual is using huge robots to make cool, completely customizable floors designed to be walked on by hundreds of thousands of people in airports and other public spaces. After installing its first floor at Loft’s flagship store in Tokyo, the company plans to install a new one at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in November.
