The Morning After: Thursday, August 10th 2017

by John_A

Today we’re looking at edible robot surgeons, EVs that will go (some) distance, and free apples. In-game ones, but still! Happy Thursday morning.

Revealed by the feds.

A bunch of EPA certification documents have finally revealed that the long-range version of Tesla’s Model 3 is equipped with a 350-volt, 230-amp-hour battery pack. Of course, that’s the $44,000 version, so anyone sticking with the $35k base model will have a battery pack rated for 220 miles on a charge.

‘Innerspace’ was actually a documentary.

In the near future, robots will no longer be cutting into us — from the outside, at least. Here’s a rundown of several edible robots in development to promote healing from within.

The debut of Rez on PCs ($25 on Steam and the Oculus Store) and in VR on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive may be the purest expression of Rez so far.

But it will only go two-thirds as far, according to a spec sheet leak.
Nissan’s next Leaf will be $5,000 cheaper than the Model 3

Want a cheap EV and willing to settle for less range? You might choose the Nissan Leaf over the Chevy Bolt or Tesla Model 3. According to a (now pulled) leak on car-sales site Autobytel, as seen by our sister site Autoblog, the 2018 Nissan Leaf will cost $29,990 for the base model with a 40 kWh battery — $5,000 less than either the base Bolt or Model 3. With two-thirds the capacity of either model, however, the incoming Leaf will have a range significantly less than its rivals.

Lights out.NBC’s Seeso comedy streaming service will shut down later this year

The bad news is that Seeso is going away. The good news is that several originals, like HarmonQuest and MBMaM have already found a new home on another service called VRV. Taking on Netflix as a niche service isn’t easy — hopefully Disney is taking notes.

But wait, there’s more…

  • How to get fired in the tech industry
  • Amazon invests in Andy Rubin’s Essential phone project
  • BMW’s i3 is a long-range concept car you can actually buy
  • Acer’s latest Chromebook packs speed in a tiny rugged body
