Tech trends 2023 Overview
From the latest in electric aircraft to the satellites that connect to phones, next year’s emerging tech.An illustration of the kind of city service imagined by Vertical Aerospace Imagine an aircraft that can take off and land like a helicopter, but without the noise, expense and emissions. That’s the vision of firms developing so-called eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle) aircraft.Designed for relatively short journeys and a handful of passengers, dozens of firms around the world are betting there is a market for them. They argue that the eVTOL aircraft can reduce the cost of flying, as their electric motors are cheaper to run and maintain than helicopter engines.
Success at NIF will spur dozens of private companies hoping to one day build a commercial fusion reactor.A private project in the UK is hoping for a big year in 2023. First Light Fusion, based outside Oxford, has a novel way of creating fusion conditions.It fires a small aluminum disc at a speed of up to 20 km/s at a specially designed target containing the fuel needed for fusion.Upon impact, the target collapses, creating huge blast waves that can trigger a fusion reaction.Earlier this year, in a big moment for the company, First Light confirmed it had achieved a merger using this method.

Among Us ‘Hide n Seek’ new mode Overview
The game starts off by revealing the impostor, the “killer” right away. Then, the players skip the vote, and let the Killer count up for about 15-30 seconds as everyone hides before announcing “ready or not, here I come”. And, then the real fun begins: crewmates are still working to complete their tasks (or, it’s up to the players), but the known Killer is up and about. Players could try and bait them around and coordinate their location, but the Killer has the advantage of not getting voted out. Winning condition is the last crewmember standing (even if the game technically says that the imposter is the winner).
Additional fun is added when playing with friends with audio on and using a proximity sensor — nobody can hear you unless you are nearby, and it definitely helps the immersion. Not too long ago, with the official addition of the new roles, the Impostors could also play as Shapeshifters, taking on the shape of another crewmember, and that feature carried well into the community’s “Hide and Seek” games.
What’s New with the Game?
The developer mentioned that the “Hide ‘n seek” mode comes with many additions. There are new things that a player needs to survive from, and there was even talk of screaming. It’s not specified what the screaming entails, but we’ll soon find out. The game will also offer new cosmetics and pets for players to choose from, as well as pets.
The pets can be petted now too, as mentioned in The Verge. These are just the additions mentioned by Among Us via Twitter, but it was also implied that there is more. There are changes in some of the major mechanics in the original game, but it could be fun for those who prefer openly hunting crewmates if they do get the role of the imposter. One thing hasn’t changed, and that’s crewmates being careful not to get killed while doing tasks.
