Tesla’s Big Battery Day Event: What to Expect

Next week will be a big one for Tesla (TSLA). Alongside its annual shareholder meeting, on Tuesday (September 22) the EV maker will host its highly anticipated Battery Day. The event has been the source of much speculation as to what delights will be on offer from Musk and Co.

Deutsche Bank analyst Emmanuel Rosner has an idea of what to look out for.

“We believe Tesla could unveil a new insourced manufacturing system to ramp up battery capacity, improved cell chemistry with greatly-enhanced performance, and fast-declining cost curve,” the analyst said. “While media and investors’ expectations for the event are high, we believe these announcements could meet many of them, and reinforce Tesla’s position as a technology leader.”

Battery capacity has already been noted as a major impediment to future growth. As such, Rosner anticipates a formal unveiling of the Roadrunner, Tesla’s battery cell manufacturing system. Expected

iPhone 12 wasn’t the only Apple product missing from this week’s event

Apple has announced its newest iPhone during a September media event every year since 2012’s iPhone 5. During 2020’s September Apple event, we got new Apple Watch and iPad models, and a bundled subscription service, but no new iPhone. That shouldn’t come as a complete surprise, as a delay has been rumored for months now, and the conventional wisdom says the iPhone 12 will be announced at an October event

The Penny Arcade Expo, better known as PAX, has become a major fan convention and games industry event since starting in the Seattle area in 2004, spawning sister events around the country and on the other side of the world. Like every other American convention this year, however, the flagship PAX West convention in Seattle has been forced by COVID-19 to change things up.

Instead of sticking to the usual 4-day schedule, PAX’s organizers Penny Arcade and ReedPop are currently offering PAX Online, a nine-day, 24-hour revolving virtual convention, held as a combined show with the cancelled Eurogamer Expo (EGX) event in London. First announced on June 16, PAX Online combines live streams, chatroom panels, a Discord chat server, and downloadable game demos to provide a PAX-esque experience to attendees still stuck in quarantine, with a 24-hour events schedule for insomniacs and

How This Event Technology Can Help Guests Feel Safe Gathering Again

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Halfway through 2020, event professionals are no longer strangers to pivoting in-person events to the virtual environment. But as we look to the future, how can we give people the confidence to gather again? Enter event pro Bruce Pike of Pike Productions, who set out to answer the question in March by pivoting to focus on event technology that could help bring live events back post-COVID-19. The end result? Temperature Check, a hands-free thermal temperature checking solution designed as a first line of prevention to make guests feel safe gathering—and ultimately shift the event industry back to in-person conferences, corporate meetings, trade shows, and more.

As for when the inspiration sparked, Pike notes that holding an oddly shaped thermometer up to a guest’s forehead is no way to greet them. “If we intend on creating fun and inviting atmospheres for our client’s events, then the way temperatures
