Tech Bytes - October 30, 2014

  • 29/10/2014

In today's Tech Bytes we meet a young Kiwi with designs on being the next Elon Musk.

Auckland teenager Kerman Kohli, 16, is helping students get their homework in on time with his invention, The Homework App – and he's making $100 a day from it already.

He got the idea after failing to find an easy-to-use app to help him organise his assignments and due dates. It's already been downloaded half a million times.

We also check out a hoverboard that actually hovers – but there's a catch. It only works on certain surfaces, but brings new hope the iconic scene from Back to the Future Part II – set in 2015 – may yet become reality.  

And lastly, we look at a smartphone-controlled egg-shaped entertainment pod with built-in projector and speakers.
