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 …

In the future, you can walk on a Passing Cloud

by Mark R

At some point in time, I think we all thought the sky would be full of airships, sort of like the alternate reality seen on the television show Fringe. This is concept known as Passing Cloud, and it is a stainless steel structure that can support spherical nylon balloons that link together to form a bubble cluster cloud. It floats up, and people take a literal walk on the clouds. …

Lean Mean Green Machine

by Edwin

I know that the movie Green Lantern did not exactly make it big at the box office, but if you went to watch it without any expectations, then you would probably enjoy yourself somewhat with all the corny lines. Somehow superheroes tend to have hang ups in their relationships, don’t you think so? But I digress – being a Lantern, you can basically will anything and everything into existence, but …

The eleMMent RV is luxury in a sexy odd shape

by Mark R

Just to let you know, the wheels of this eleMMent RV do not fold up, and it does not fly. Yes, it looks like this craft is from the future, but this 40-foot vehicle is so now. It has 500 square feet of usable area, a master bedroom with a 40-inch flatscreen, and a couch and a table that can transform to a bar and lounge. Still not sold on …

Sibling Tricycle promotes sharing

by Edwin

What’s life without a little bit of conflict here and there? The $299.99 Sibling Tricycle that you see above might cause a dent in your monthly budget, but at least it kills two birds with one stone, but I might dig up another feathered friend to the collection if I manage to find more points to support the purchase of this particular trike. For one, you need to buy only …

Augmented reality brings Japanese popstar Hatsune Miku to life

by Edwin

If you happen to rock to iOS and Android-powered smartphones and happen to live in Japan, then you might be interested to hear that Japanese popstar Hatsune Miku might be making her way into your Toyota Corolla (2011 model) as a passenger. Of course, she will not be there as a passenger, but rather, she will perform “live” on a stage in 3D thanks to an Augmented Reality (AR) experience. …
