AI synthetic voices are also gaining traction in the gaming industry.
AI voice generation is not just for the movie industry! The technology is also being used to create synthetic voices for music tracks, and could greatly change the outlook of the industry in coming years.
At this rate, voice actors will be soon made obsolete by AI, which can replicate human voices at a cheaper and faster rate.
Wow! Check out this article on how AI was used to recreate the young Luke Skywalker’s voice in Star Wars.
AI voice generation is promising to be a cool technology. Imagine being able to replicate the voice of your favourite actors in any language.
Here’s a concept for an app that can be used for indoor navigation in airports, malls, and other large buildings.
Seem’s like someone already had the same idea
An airport navigation app with maps can be helpful for travellers; after all, getting lost in an airport is very easy!
Here’s a similar concept – a detachable passenger cabin for airliners, which could be landed with parachutes in an emergency.
Commercial airliners can weigh more than 400 tonnes. Therefore, you would need too many parachutes to land the plane safely, which is impractical.
Some planes have a parachute system that can be deployed for a safe landing. However, the technology is currently only available for light aircrafts.
A crazy idea, but one that can change the future of Wi-Fi technology.
Spray-on wireless antennas can solve signal issues and help take connectivity to a new level.
