Lightyear One - Solar Car

January 01, 2020

Lightyear One has been engineered coming from a radically different perspective. The performance pushes us to focus relentlessly on to optimize efficiency and safety.

 

Started from scratch, following not convention but only the laws of physics, to get the most out of every joule of energy. Lightyear One will get to a range of 725 km on the WLTP cycle. We will guarantee at least 400km in winter, at highway speeds and with heating on. Mostly, range will be between 500 and 800 kilometers.

Ferrari SF90 Stradale 1,000 HP Hybrid V8 Supercar

August 01, 2019

Ferrari has unveiled its first-ever plug-in hybrid model to secure its future with supercars.

 

Called SF90 Stradale to reference its F1 racing programme into road cars, the mid-engined two-seater is meant for series production and won’t be made in limited numbers. The design of the SF90 Stradale is quite different from other Fezzas currently on sale and features surfaces that take great interest in aerodynamics.

 

Note how the rear lamps look less circular than in the F8 Tributo and 812 Superfast. Ferrari has also made significant strides in the cockpit which now incorporates digital screens, head-up display and steering wheel with haptic functions. The new electronic gear operation on the console apes those used on classic Fezzas of yore.

Dual Propeller Circular Drone - Flybotix

July 16, 2019

Ring-shaped dual-prop drone boasts twice the flight time of quadcopters... The shorter a drone's propellers, the less efficient they are at keeping it airborne. That factor, along with compact, low-capacity batteries, is the reason that small drones can't fly for very long. A new two-prop drone, however, is claimed to deliver twice the flight time as similar-sized quadcopters.

Measuring about 30 cm wide (12 inches), the ring-shaped drone has two counter-rotating horizontal propellers stacked one above the other within its foam body. Because those props are longer than those that would be used in a same-size quadcopter, they provide more lift. Additionally, because the battery is only powering two motors instead of four, it doesn't run out as quickly.

Flying V

June 30, 2019

KLM to fund development of fuel-efficient Flying-V plane. The development of a V-shaped, fuel-efficient airplane design known as the Flying-V is getting a boost with the announcement that Dutch national carrier KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will help to fund it.

 

Intended to improve the sustainability of air travel, the Flying-V was conceived by Justus Benad, then a student at the Technical University of Berlin, and developed by researchers at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, also known as TU Delft. Its futuristic design incorporates the

 

It's claimed the plane will use 20% less fuel than the Airbus A350-900 while carrying a similar number of passengers -- the Flying-V will seat 314, while the Airbus A350 seats between 300 and 350. The design also mirrors the A350's 65-meter (213 feet) wingspan, enabling it to use existing airport infrastructure.

Hydrogen Powered Air Vehicle SKAI

June 25, 2019

3D Printed House

June 04, 2019

The first on-site house has been printed in Russia. The first house printed using mobile 3D printing technology has been built in Stupino town, Moscow region. The Apis Cor and PIK companies have successfully completed the project.

Design of the single-story residential house is rather unusual. This project was selected specifically, as one of the main purposes of this construction is to demonstrate the flexibility of equipment and diversity of available forms. The house can be of any shape, including the familiar square shape, because the additive technology has no restrictions on design of new buildings, except for the laws of physics. It means it’s time to talk about the new fantastic potential of architectural solutions. The house was erected in the coldest time of the year. Winter has added complexity to the project participants, as the use of concrete mixture, that is used as the printing «ink», is only possible at temperatures above 5° C. Although, the equipment itself is able to operate in temperatures down to minus 35° C. The problem was solved by setting up a tent which provided the required temperature.

Rotary Actuated Dodecahedron

May 28, 2019

Studying aliens of the deep... Folding polyhedron sampler enables easy capture and release of delicate underwater organisms.

(CAMBRIDGE, Mass.) — The open ocean is the largest and least explored environment on Earth, estimated to hold up to a million species that have yet to be described. However, many of those organisms are soft-bodied – like jellyfish, squid, and octopuses – and are difficult to capture for study with existing underwater tools, which all too frequently damage or destroy them. Now, a new device developed by researchers at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute, John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study safely traps delicate sea creatures inside a folding polyhedral enclosure and lets them go without harm using a novel, origami-inspired design. The research is reported in Science Robotics.
