Sony and Yamaha are making a self-driving cart for theme parks

Remember how we said Sony's self-driving SC-1 concept would make for a great party bus? Apparently, Sony had the same idea. The company is partnering with Yamaha on the SC-1 Sociable Cart, an expansion of the concept designed for entertainment purposes like theme parks, golf courses and "commercial facilities." The new version seats five people instead of three (and in greater comfort), lasts longer through replaceable batteries and uses additional image sensors to improve its situational awareness.

As before, Sony feels the sensors eliminate the need for windows. A 49-inch (124 cm) 4K monitor on the inside provides a mixed reality view of the world, while four 55-inch (140 cm) 4K displays bombard passers-by with ads and other material. It will even use AI to optimise promos for outside people based on factors like age and gender - not quite Minority Report levels of eerily accurate ad targeting, but getting there.

Report: Spider-Man Will No Longer Be Shared By Marvel And Sony

Report: Spider-Man Will No Longer Be Shared By Marvel And Sony Huge news in the world of superheroes. Deadline reports that Disney and Sony have come to a stalemate in regards to Spider-Man and that Marvel Studios, along with its president Kevin Feige, will no longer be producing Spider-Man films. This comes after Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is being re-released in a few weeks, became Sony’s highest-grossing film of all time. Gizmodo has reached out to both Marvel and Sony for comment and will update when and if we hear anything. The issue, as you’d expect, is money.

The two companies expect to use the Sociable Cart for services in Japan sometime in fiscal 2019 (that is, before the end of March 2020). It won't, however, be available for sale. Not that you'd really want one given its glacial 11.8MPH (18.9KMPH) top speed. This is strictly for fun on closed circuits, not your next pub crawl.


Sony may announce the Xperia 2 at IFA 2019.
It could keep the familiar 21:9 aspect ratio display and most everything else, too
