Technology is constantly improving, and today, we’ve compiled a list of 5 innovations that will change the game in their respective fields.

Glove light

Face masks have become mandatory worldwide, meaning we all have more face masks lying around than ever before. Glove light has designed an all-new product that can help your mask remain clean so that you can wear it each day without risking breathing in harmful bacteria or other contaminants. The glove light is a UVC carrying case for your mask that can quickly and easily destroy all harmful bacteria in a matter of minutes. This keeps your mask clean and sanitary with each use—allowing you to clean it between locations while running through your daily tasks, potentially saving lives.

According to the glove, most people tend to place their masks in their pocket, purse or even a zipper bag when they are not in use. They can lead to bacteria multiplying and making your mask far more dangerous than when you initially removed it. The glove light cuts down on this bacteria, cleaning your mask without having to put it in a washer. The glove light easily fits in your pocket or purse and can be recharged with a USB cable. Place your mask inside the glove light. Close the lid and let the UVC light disinfect your mask almost immediately.

Portable Washer

Having a washing machine in your home can be incredibly convenient. However, dirty clothes can pile up very quickly if you don’t wash them daily. The Mitch portable washer was designed to be a companion to your existing washer, expanding your capacity to wash clothes on laundry day. It is compact and can be stored on any shelf in your home. When you’re ready to use it, expand the washbasin and plug it in—all you need to do is add water, then your clothes, and pour your detergent. The washer will take care of the rest and even spin-dry your clothes. The compact design makes this a no-brainer for any home and can help you clean your clothes much quicker than using a standard washer alone.

SONY FX3

With its minimal profile and borrowing the best from many worlds, the most inexpensive Sony FX3 is an optimised portable cinema camera. This full-frame camera has been designed for filmmakers and can record HD videos at 120fps for lengthy periods.

Compact, lightweight, and easily portable, It has heightened sensitivity and clarity and provides sockets for plugging in audio inputs. Additionally, there’s in-body photo

stabilisation and the sensor’s design incorporates a Fast Hybrid AF system for intelligent and quick focusing performance and subject tracking. 

The camera will work seamlessly with Sony’s yet-to-be-released Airspeak drone, and we can’t wait to get our hands on one.

Xiaomi Air charge:

In the early days, Xiaomi has shown off a demo of a product it’s planning to put on sale this year. It’s known as Mi Air Charge technology, and it uses a hundred and forty-four micro-antennae to switch strength to your telephone using a slender wave beam.

According to Xiaomi’s demo, you’d be capable of walking into a room, and your smartphone would begin charging, even if an object is in the way. Here’s to never running out of battery life again!

Superstrata Bike

Are you a carbon fiber fetishist, and enjoy cycling? Well, then you’re in luck. Superstata is a company that uses advanced carbon fibre composite materials and innovative 3D-printing manufacturing to create tailor-made bikes based on your dimensions, riding style, and preferences.

Starlink Broadband could soon go live in India

Starlink-Broadband-Marksmen-Daily4

Starlink Broadband, the satellite-internet company committed to providing high-speed internet connectivity to areas that aren’t connected to wired or wireless internet, could soon go live in 10 rural areas of India. 

While posting on LinkedIn, Starlink Country Director India, Sanjay Bhargava, said that they have more than 5000 pre-orders from India, with a “stretch target of 2,00,000 terminals active in India in December 2022”, subject to government approval.

While expanding on the subject in a release note, the company said, “​​The government approval process is complex. So far there is no application pending with the government, so the ball is in our court to apply for consideration which we are working on. Our approach will be to get pilot approval quickly if pan India approval will take long. We are optimistic that we will get approval for a pilot program or pan India approval in the next few months”.

Starlink’s plans take flight

Elon Musk also said the company was in talks with airlines about deploying Starlink on board, with users promised low latency half gigabit internet if the plans go through. It was unclear which airlines were contacted or when the installation would take place.  

These aren’t the first rumblings about this plan, with SpaceX Vice President Jonathan Hofeller signing from the same hymn sheet back in June. Hofeller remarked that SpaceX has already done some demonstrations of the technology, and it is looking to finalize the product in the near future, saying that, “Starlink provides a global mesh (so that) airlines flying underneath that global mesh have connectivity anywhere they go. Passengers and customers want a great experience that (geosynchronous satellite internet) systems simply cannot provide”. 

So far, SpaceX has launched 1,740 Starlink satellites, and the program currently has about 100,000 users in 14 countries, with plans to launch 12,000 satellites.

EVs: The Future of Human Mobility

Ev-the-future-of-mobility-Marksmen-Daily

As Electric Vehicles (EV) are becoming increasingly popular every day, its market share is also expected to rise greatly. And the economic arguments for this are too strong to ignore; with India heavily dependent on oil imports, transitioning to EVs could help save $60 billion on oil imports by 2030. And the average consumer will be happy to migrate to EVs as well, with fuel prices crossing a century in most parts of the country. Widespread adoption could help consumers save an average of Rs. 20,000 for every 5,000 kilometres traversed, assuming electricity costs will hover around Rs. 1.1 per kilometer. 

Tata Motors is one of the foremost movers in the space, with an early mover advantage. The future looks promising for the leading automaker as the private equity group TPG along with ADQ of Abu Dhabi has agreed to invest in the EV division Rs 7500 crore ($1 billion), valuing the business at $9.1 billion. This most certainly helps the automobile arm of Tata to boost their EV footprint and market share.  

The new investors will be given Compulsorily Convertible Preference Shares (CCPS), which will give them an 11-15 percent ownership in the EV unit after 18 months of conversion, with Tata Motors owning the rest. The conversion will also be tied to certain revenue criteria that have been agreed upon. The first round of 50 percent capital infusion is planned to be finished by March 22, with the remaining funds infused by the end of 2022.  

Tata Motors has already announced plans to roll out 10 new battery electric vehicles in its domestic product portfolio by 2025. The company is also evaluating the creation of automotive software and  an engineering vertical within the Tata group that will help it lead in the sphere of connected and autonomous vehicles.

The rise of Electric Vehicles in India

Rise-of-EV-in-India-marksmen-daily

After the boom of Electric Vehicles (EVs) across the world, Indian businesses now seek Government support in order to meet their needs by 2030 i.e., 65% of vehicles in India to be electric. 

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) said that more than 25 companies, including automakers Mahindra & Mahindra and Volvo, oil giant Shell, and clean mobility startups, want India to set firm targets and frame policies to support the transition to electric vehicles (EVs). 

This is India’s first coordinated effort to transition to sustainable transportation, and it comes only weeks before the United Nations’ climate change summit, which is considered as critical to eliciting additional commitments from states to combat global warming. 

In recent months, India has approved plans to encourage companies to manufacture electric vehicles and batteries in the country, boosting supply and complementing a bevy of federal and state incentives for EV purchasers. 

According to the WBCSD, by 2030, companies want 30% of new automobiles, 70% of new motorcycles and scooters, and 35% of new buses to be electric. They want the government to legalize e-bike taxi services, issue fleet permits for electric three-wheelers, make financing and leasing alternatives for electric cars more accessible, and expedite the construction of public chargers in order to achieve this. 

JBM Group of India, Hero Electric Motorcycles, Switch Mobility, Fortum Energy, IKEA, and LeasePlan are among the companies supporting the project.
