It’s the start of another new week, which means it’s time for a new apps post. The weekend brought us quite a few, so we’ll dig right in.

Two companies are taking autonomous vehicles to the next level with self-sailing ships.

Played by Cress Williams, Black Lightning is one of DC’s first black superheroes, and as the name suggests, his powers are based in electricity.
