Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR
From the creator of the hit film Avatar, James Cameron, in partnership with Mercedes-Benz comes this sweet looking ride. This concept car looks like it would fit perfectly in the Pandora moon from the movie. Life imitates art, people! The car can detect your pulse and sense your breathing, to create a symbiotic relationship between you and the vehicle, just like in the movie. My only question is, what if I’m not compatible with my Mercedes-Benz Vision AVTR and it flips over and drops me out of the car?

Who else is in it? Check this Insta360 One R Camera!
Insta360 One R
Insta360’s new One R takes away the standard action cam design and instead takes on a modular approach that allows you to swap out different lenses and sensors. It includes a 360 degree lens, a wide-angle lens and a wide angle lens paired with a one inch sensor that is capable of capturing 5K video. What sets the One R apart from the GoPro is the editing software accompanying it. Once you load your 360 footage on your computer, you can reframe your shot, add pans and track people or objects to keep them in the frame. The Insta360’s AI powered object-tracking algorithm makes sure that resulting footage looks like you intended to shoot from the start.
