Multicopter uses sixteen deadly spinning blades for flight

by Mark R

Sure, you could take a ride in a helicopter with one giant spinning rotor on top, or even go with two. However, why not live on the edge and go with sixteen smaller ones. This is e-volo multicopter from Germany, and even though I would never risk being the pilot, I admire what they were trying to do. Like most new flying vehicles, the first flight was not long. Pilot …

iSafe cushioned car is the safest ever

by Mark R

Yesterday, we covered the Ford Motor Company’s lane keeping technology that could help prevent accidents. Today, I have discovered another way that accidents can be prevented with the iSafe. The iSAVE-SC1 by Humanix is essentially an electric-powered, three-wheeled golf cart that is the safest thing you can drive. It is essentially a frame made of inflatable balloons, and being hit with it is like being hit by a giant marshmallow. …

Award Winning Stroller To Tricycle

by Edwin

When someone describes something as “award winning”, one would most probably think of the Oscars or perhaps, the Grammys. Guess things are slightly different when you drop things down by several notches – case in point, the $179.95 Award Winning Stroller To Tricycle, which is pretty much self-explanatory. This unique toy picked up the Nuremburg Toy Fair’s prestigious “Toy Innovation” award, as it is a stroller which is capable of …

Lane keeping technology by Ford could help save lives

by Edwin

I guess with all the technological improvements that are incorporated into vehicles, we drivers start to relax ourselves more and more, taking things for granted while we are behind the wheel. Perhaps there should not be so much technology thrown behind the steering wheel so that drivers will always be alert each time they are behind the wheel. Ford’s latest exploits would be a new kind of lane keeping technology …

Solar Ship is one fuel-efficient blimp

by Mark R

There is one thing that I like to see in the air, and that is blimps. This Solar Ship makes me like them all the more, because it is one very green thing in the wild blue yonder. As you might have guessed, the Solar Ship is solar-powered. I’m sure you know that blimps stay in the air because the helium makes them lighter than air, but something has to …

BMW car-to-x communication system might pave the way for safer roads

by Edwin

I am quite sure that you have read or are at least aware of the outrage in China where a young girl was knocked down by a vehicle on the street, and left there to bleed to death for a good 18 minutes or so without a single passer-by offering any form of assistance or help. Well, surely drivers will need to do their part at all times to remain …

Mag Surf makes Hoverboards real thanks to superconductive liquid nitrogen

by Mark R

What you are seeing in the photo and the video after the jump is a demonstration by the Universite Paris Diderot at a science fair. This is the Mag Surf, and it makes our Back to the Future II hoverboard dream a reality. The trick is that the super-cold liquid nitrogen in this board makes it superconductive, which means that it repels the magnetic field on the track. With one …
