Have you ever wanted to sit down for an intimate chat with your favorite celebrity? Imagine being able to quiz your favorite musician about their guitar technique, or ask an actor about their experiences on set. Well, that just became a reality with the recently announced Cameo Live.

Cameo is an app that already allows you to request personalized pre-recorded video messages from celebrities by paying them a fee. Although the platform does have a direct messaging system, Cameo has recently upgraded its service with 10-minute live video calls.

Users can request a callback around their own schedule, and the sessions also allow an option to include more than one person to listen in. Here’s a breakdown of the features from Cameo itself:

  • Book the 10-minute live video call with one of the thousands of athletes, actors, musicians, comedians, creators, reality stars, and other pop culture personalities.
  • Opt for a one-on-one conversation, invite up to nine friends and family members to join you, or gift the call to a loved one.
  • Propose three date/time options that work best for you, giving you more schedule control.

Although the idea sounds promising, it’s difficult to see how users won’t abuse the new feature. Cameo seems to have thought of that very eventuality and put specific measures in place.

“Cameo uses technology to auto moderate the chat function of Cameo Live to protect against things like profanity and hate speech,” says Brandon Kazimer, Cameo Spokesperson.

Celebrities can decline calls if they feel threatened, as well as terminate chats mid-session if things go wrong. Concerns aside, the new feature does sound like a lot of fun, though depending on the celebrity, it could be pricey to set up a chat.

So who would you like to book for a celebrity chat? With prices anywhere from $100 to $900, you’d be well advised to make notes to ensure you get your money’s worth!

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
