Now that we know more about Apple’s new iPhone X, let’s delve into two truly outstanding iPhone X innovations, its Face ID face recognition system and animated emoji, dubbed “Animoji”

The iPhone X discards an already innovative fingerprint ID system for a futuristic “TrueDepth” camera system that bathes your face in more than 30,000 invisible, infra-red dots. As the name implies, TrueDepth produces a face scan that can spot a photo fake, while preventing someone from accessing your iPhone X while asleep.

Perhaps even more remarkable is the use of this front-facing depth camera to help you customize animal emojis. You have already witnessed the tremendous impact Apple’s emoji have had on culture. No media report ever uses Android emoticons to illustrate a social media story. I can’t wait to see what people will conjure up with this amazing technology come November 3.

First Exoskeleton Suit Receives FDA Clearance

Marlborough, Mass.-based ReWalk Robotics has received clearance from Food and Drug Administration for the company’s ReStore soft exo-suit system designed for U.S. rehabilitation centers. ReStore is the only soft exo-suit with FDA clearance, and is intended for use in the treatment of stroke survivors with mobility challenges. The cost for ReStore will hover around the $100,000 mark, putting it out of reach for most patients but not rehab facilities. The technology should improve and lower costs. The global stroke management market is forecast to reach $37 billion by 2023, according to Allied Market Research.

Delivery Drones

In April, Alphabet’s Wing became the first drone delivery company to gain Federal Aviation Administration approval to make commercial U.S. deliveries. Just five years ago, 63% of Americans thought it would be a “change for the worse” if commercial drones were given permission to fly through most U.S. airspace. But then again, you can’t have consumers assess future technologies because they have little understanding of its inherent potential. That is underscored by Morgan Stanley’s prediction that autonomous aircraft could become a $1.5 trillion industry by 2040. Meanwhile, Amazon has unveiled the latest iteration of its Prime Air delivery drone. Video below in our innovation video gallery.
