Amazon To Deliver To The Trunk Of Your Car
As if Amazon is not amazing enough already with the option to have a Prime membership and receive free two day shipping, they now want to kick it up a notch further. Amazon will now start delivering packages you order directly to the trunk of your car. Only being announced as a pilot program in Germany, it still has great potential for this service to really take off.
Amazon has partnered with Audi and DHL Parcel to launch the pilot program next month in Munich, Germany. The idea started when customers began complaining about missed deliveries because they were at work during the day. It’s not always appropriate to have packages delivered to your workplace so they figured that this was the next best thing. Right now the pilot is focusing only on Audi owners, however if the program proves to be a success they are looking to expand outside of Germany and to all Amazon Prime owners, regardless of what type of vehicle they own.
Logistics still need to be worked out should the pilot prove to be a success. However for now a select group of Audi owners have agreed to let their vehicles be traced the day of the delivery. DHL Parcel will then equip delivery personnel with a smart phone and app that will allow them to locate the vehicle and Audi will team up to allow keyless entry into the trunk of the car. Once the delivery occurs, the trunk will close and be locked automatically. An automated email message will then be sent to the owner of the vehicle indicating the delivery was successful.
In case you’re wondering how DHL Parcel delivery drivers will locate cars parked in secured lots or company garages with private access, don’t worry. Amazon has truly thought of everything. Customers who park in private, company owned parking lots or public garages with gated access will still be eligible for the trunk-side delivery service. The service is even available to cars parked on the street.
If a customer is unhappy with the product they have ordered, Amazon has also developed a pretty simple return policy. So easy in fact customers just need to put the items they wish to return back into their trunks. They can effortlessly schedule a return pick up and DHL Parcel will handle the rest.
Both Amazon and Audi are anticipating the pilot program to gain quick popularity. In fact, Audi said that if the program is as popular as they believe it will be they will be looking to expand the delivery service to other online retailers. They plan to launch the “Audi Connect Easy Delivery” service shortly after the initial Amazon pilot program.
There is no doubt with the increase in technology and the many advances being made in the automobile industry we are able to take convenience and accessibility to an entirely new level. This could be the start of something groundbreaking, revolutionizing the world of delivery service.
NailO – Fashion Meets Computer Technology
It looks like a bandage you had to use to cover a ripped nail. However, it is the newest technology enabling you to control your digital devices. NaillO, developed at MIT Media Laboratory, is actually a small device you attach to your thumbnail. When NailO is activated it becomes a personalized wireless track pad allowing you to work remotely with any touch pad device. It integrates a processor, the Bluetooth radio and the battery into an incredibly small fingernail sized package. Since it does not need to be plugged in or connected to anything, NailO allows for easy access to touchscreens in phones and computers.
NailO has three separate chips which are confined into this thumbnail sized space but, according to Artem Dementyev, a graduate student in media arts and sciences at MIT, “designing the antenna was probably the hardest part”. Dementyev, one of the paper’s authors, stated that the “antenna, had to be far enough away from the chips so it did not interfere with them”.
The battery is also a special challenge. A trip to China to talk with battery manufacturers may have brought a technology to provide them with a better battery that fits into a thumbnail, yet it’s thickness is only half a millimeter. The purpose is of course to save space, which is leading them to discover a way to combine all three necessary chips into one. The process to turning NailO off an on is still being worked on, which is another measure of saving the battery’s energy supply.
Interestingly enough the device was a result of the fashion stickers that some Asian women are using on their nails. These colorful stickers are very popular according to Cindy Hsin-Liy Kao, one of the other paper’s lead authors. Kao was unable to find the fashion stickers and had to have them sent to her from Taiwan. Ms. Kao is also an MIT graduate student in media arts and sciences.
The idea ballooned from there with the intent that NailO will be completely customize-able with different “stickers” to cover it as well as being completely functional. The stickers are interchangeable so the piece is also a fashion statement.
Imagine being in a being important meeting and you need to let your spouse or child know you will be late. This can be accomplished without your colleagues knowing what you are doing. It can also be used in cooking when following a recipe by scrolling pages without having you leave the task you are currently on. The purposes the NailO can be used for are just being explored. Many more uses will no doubt be forthcoming soon.
