Traffic in the Bay Area can be a nightmare. Technology unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas aimed at making residents’ morning and evening commutes considerably shorter. The goal, according to Silicon Valley company Volocopter GmbH, is to get people out of their cars and into drones. It’s an Uber or Lyft ride of the future, if you will. The VC200 Air Taxi from Volocopter, an 18-rotor drone people can sit in, flies to places in the Bay Area.
The Consumer Electronic Show gave people a first look at the future of driverless cars. Panasonic unveiled a fully autonomous car, which is crammed full of artificial intelligence. The Living Space Autonomous Cabin is a lap of luxury – almost like a comfortable living room on wheels. “You can relax in the car,” said Fabien Roth of Panasonic. The Las Vegas crowds around the car, though, were anything but relaxed. “I think that's the part of the living room you'd like to have in your car,” Roth said.
As if our lives aren't already full of calling out instructions to a digital assistant or smartphone, the Consumer Electronic Show gave thousands a peek into their future living rooms – at home and on the go. Living rooms have become theaters, they’ve become dance halls, and they can transport you into virtual worlds – giving you pretty much everything you want, anytime you want it. “The phrase ‘What's on TV tonight?’ won't exist,” said Bruce Walker of electronics company, TCL Corporation.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
