Nokia once reined supreme in the mobile phone arena. Unfortunately time and technology had caught up with them, effectively putting an end to the era of cell phone. During its heyday and before the proliferation of smartphones, the Finnish tech company had turned out countless mobile phones, but it was the 3 series, particularly the 3310, that became sort of an icon.

Ehang’s Human-carrying Drone Is Set To Ply Dubai’s Sky This Summer

Ehang 184, the ambitious oversized eight-rotor drone from China introduced at last year’s CES, is reportedly kicking off “regular operations” around Dubai’s sky in July 2017. In fact, according to a report by AP, Ehang 184 has been taking to the skies around Dubai’s Burj Al-Arab skyscraper which, of course, has a helipad for it to land. However, the report did not mention if those flights where with or without people in the craft. I don’t know whether this autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) will be reserved for the elites, or is it part of the grand plan by UAE’s government for a futuristic city. Whatever it is, Ehang’s milestone is a giant stride for short-range city transportation which, to be honest, has been stagnant for many decades now.

This Is The Bat Creature That Supposed To Appear In Batman V Superman

One of the most memorable scene from Batman v Superman would be that of Bruce Wayne’s nightmare. I guess the decryption processing was so freaking darn slow that not only did the Bat fell asleep (I have no idea that he even sleep at all) but also induced a nightmare. If you think that the dystopia Mad Max-like nightmare setting plus the fact that Batman kills made zero sense, then you will be thankful it wasn’t made worst by something totally out-of-this-world: a bat creature. Wait, what? A bat creature? Well, apparently, yes. According to Batman v Superman production designer Patrick Tatopoulos who have shared a concept art (on Instagram) of a hideous creature that supposed to be part of the Dark Knight’s nightmare.
