The Hunstable Electric Turbine by Linear Labs can boost the efficiency of EVs, scooters, and wind turbines.
A Texas-based startup,
Linear Labs, claims that its innovative electric prototype can generate two to
five times the torque of existing motors with the same-size package. Torque is
the amount of work that a motor or engine produces.
Linear Labs’ motor
boasts three times more power, 20 percent greater efficiency, less complex
power trains, and no gearbox is required.
A Tesla Model 3 owner “bio-hacked” her body and implanted a key card chip into her forearm to unlock and start her vehicle.
Amie DD, a software engineer with a background in game simulation and programming, recently released a video showing how she undertakes the ultimate hack: implanting the chip from inside her Model 3 valet key card into her arm.
The new mayor of Madrid has the city’s congestion pricing program stopped, even with early proof that it reduced traffic and pollution after it entered into force in November last year.
It is the first big European city to reverse the creation of a low-emission zone, a concept that has become more popular in recent years as the European Union seeks to apply new clean air restrictions across the entire continent. The move led thousands of citizens to protest in the streets of the city last week.
The CO2 emissions of electric vehicles are higher than those of diesel cars, according to German researchers.
study conducted by the Ifo, under the leadership of German physics professor
Christoph Buchal has revealed that the electric vehicles might be creating a
significant amount of CO2 emissions during their battery production and
A self-driving bus hit a pedestrian in Vienna
and stopped Austrian trials of the technology.
Austrian authorities are investigating why a
driverless bus struck a pedestrian in Vienna, an incident that resulted in
minor injuries but paused the trials of two autonomous buses while it awaits
the results of an investigation into the incident.
Musk wants to fly you anywhere in the world in less than an hour.
SpaceX continues to move toward developing passenger rockets. A plane ride from New York City to Shanghai usually takes about 15 hours – and it could be 29 hours with connecting flights. However, SpaceX says it could get you there in less than an hour with the so-called point-to-point travel. How realistic is this approach to long-haul travel, though?
Self-driving trucks operated by technology startup
TuSimple will haul mail and packages across the Southwest in a two-week pilot
The US Postal Service has awarded a
contract to TuSimple, a firm that aims to bring the first self-driving
truck to market. The technology firm said it is planning to perform five round
trips in total between Postal Service distribution centers in Phoenix and
Dallas, a journey of more than 1,000 miles each way through Arizona, New Mexico
and Texas along interstates 10, 20 and 30. The runs began last week as
