#InspiredPINGS - June 2017 Issue

Each month we bring together the best stories from the worlds of live events, experiential and advertising communications in our blog #INSPIREDPINGS - celebrating the best "lightbulb" moments and ideas from across the Web. This month we take a look how London buses could run on coffee, a spectacular light show created with drone technology, and much more.

CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE THINKING

Will London buses be run on coffee?

Green entrepreneur Arthur Kay wants the red buses that have become a landmark of London to run on fuel generated by coffee waste. He runs Biobean, a start-up which is gathering waste from coffee chains such as Costa and converting it into liquid fuel, with the idea being it will help London to have cleaner air.

How Waymo will bring its latest self-drive technology to the masses

Waymo (formally the Google self-drive project) announced this month that it will be retiring its iconic fleet of Fireflies, and instead will be focusing on integrating its latest technology into vehicles like the new self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivan. This blog explains the Firefly journey and touches on what the future holds for the self-drive technology.

IDEAS THAT CONNECT AND ENGAGE AUDIENCES

The lightbulb moments that triggered a lifelong passion for the arts

When we have a great experience, it can trigger a lightbulb moment…what we call a PING! These moments can go on to influence what we think, feel or do in our lives long after. In this article artists and arts workers from all over Australia share their lightbulb moment, or series of moments, that started their love affair with the arts and compelled them to work in the industry.

INSPIRATION FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Drone technology creates a spectacular light show

This short film captures highlights of some of NEWSUBSTANCE's autonomously flown, swarm drone deployments. C.50-100 drones are operated via a single ground control system at 400ft above ground level achieving images at over 100m in width. Pre-programmed, super bright LED's are housed on the under side of each drone and when flown together as a fleet produce a stunning effect.

The car is the DJ at the launch of the Jaguar F-Pace in Japan
