"Audi's automatic parking systems operate by means of either ultrasound or cameras, which display images via the onboard monitor. One particularly convenient solution is park assist. When backing into a parking space, it performs all the necessary steering movements; it can handle both parallel parking and parking perpendicular to the street. The system finds a parking space with ultrasound sensors that scan the roadside in two dimensions while driving at moderate speed. The system notifies the driver via a message in the display once the sensors have found a space which is large enough...."

The robot is called the BSF-Auto, created by Japan's Ishikawa Oku Laboratory. The BFS-Auto uses high speed, automated page flipping and real-time 3D page recognition to read a 250-page book in just one minute. That's about a novel per minute, an Oxford Dictionary in under 10 minutes. "BFS-Auto can achieve high-speed and high-definition book digitization at over 250 pages/min using the original media format. This performance is realized by three key points: high-speed fully-automated page flipping, real-time 3D recognition of the flipped pages, and high-accuracy restoration to a flat document image. This system is toward the practical use in 2013." The BFS-Auto is set to make its commercial debut some time in 2013, but you can see it in action now in the video.

The "invisible iPhone keyboard" is the creation of Swiss designer Florian Kräutli. Using the iPhone's built-in three-dimesnional accelerometer, the has developed an application that translates vibrations from different surfaces caused by tapping. reflected onto a paper keyboard as guidelines, the app is then calibrated using special software, where a program generates a series of defined patterns using the frequencies collected from the data. From this, each different vibration is then converted as a simulated key press on the 'invisible keyboard'.
