1. Meet Olli 2.0, a 3D-printed autonomous shuttle

  • From afar, Olli resembles many of the “future is now!” electric autonomous shuttles that have popped up in recent years.
  • The tall rectangular pod, with its wide-set headlights and expansive windows nestled between a rounded frame, gives the shuttle a friendly countenance that screams, ever so gently, “come along, take a ride.”
  • But Olli is different in almost every way, from how it’s produced to its origin story. And now, its maker, Local Motors, has given Olli an upgrade in hopes of accelerating the adoption of its autonomous shuttles.

Every 18 to 24 months,double the number of transistors per unit area were crammed into our silicon chips. This helped reduce cost as well as improve performance and power consumption in successive generations of microchips. As microchips became more compact, it also helped pave the way for thinner compute form factors including the mobile phones, tablets and ultrathin laptops.
