SpaceX reveals space suit, Snapchat to again produce original scripted shows and Jukin Media to expand studio for original content production.
Elon Musk unveiled the SpaceX space suit on Instagram on Wednesday, reports CNBC. The suit features a helmet and what appears to be a low-weight design. It is probably more of a flight suit meant to be worn by passengers traveling inside a spaceship rather than for spacewalks.
Snapchat wants to have its own original scripted shows by the end of this year, reports The Verge. In its second attempt to create original content, the firm says it wants to complement, rather than compete with, linear television.
Jukin Media, best known for licensing YouTube videos, plans to produce original shows in a new 14,000-square-foot studio in Culver City, reports Variety. The company plans to use the studio to branch out in new verticals including documentary, travel, lifestyle and competitions.
