Techrules turns its turbine range-extending Ren supercar into a single-seat track car

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 23:32:01 +0000

(image)

Techrules has been one of the biggest, flashiest stories of the past two Geneva Motor Shows, and as Geneva 2018 approaches, the company commits to being front and center yet again. It will be premiering a track version of last year's Ren turbine range-extender supercar. The new Ren RS maintains the potent turbine-extended electric powertrain and radical fighter jet inspiration of the street car but loses two passengers, drops some weight and gains lap-optimizing aero tech.

Self-curing resin may make wind turbines more eco-friendly

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 23:10:21 +0000

(image)

Although wind turbines may seem like the epitome of "green" energy, scientists from Vanderbilt University are working on making them even greener. More specifically, they're looking at a resin that could save energy when turbine blades are being created, and that might make those blades more recyclable.

Wearing bright orange or silver reflective safety gear may indeed help motorists see you at night, but a lot of people still prefer more fashionable colors like black. If you're such a person, then you might be interested in Vollebak's new Black Light sports gear – it's all-black, yet it reflects spots of white light.

Ultra-tiny house takes downsizing to the extreme

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 14:43:41 +0000

(image)

Though very small tiny houses, like the Terraform Three, will only appeal to hardcore small living enthusiasts, it's fascinating to see how people manage to adapt such tiny spaces to their needs. This is the case with the Wheelie Shack too, which has a bedroom, kitchen and dining area all squeezed into its rather diminutive dimensions.

JimBoat relaunches 6.5-ft electric powerboat for children

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 14:36:34 +0000

(image)

Though there are several well known manufacturers of electric-powered cars scaled down for children, there has never been a scaled down electric speed boat equivalent – until now. The JimBoat was conceived when boatbuilder Denis Jimenez found that his five-year-old grandson shared his passion for powerboats. "That's how the 6.5 ft electric powerboat was born," says Jimenez. "I built it as a surprise for him, to convey my values, my knowledge and my passion to my grandson, and so he will remember the fun of being a mini-mariner."

Stem cells help patch up brain damage in stroke victims

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 07:22:53 +0000

(image)

Researchers at the University of Georgia have developed a new stem-cell-based treatment for strokes. When tested in animal models, the technique was found to reduce brain damage and help the brain heal itself faster, and the results have been promising enough that human clinical trials may follow as soon as next year.

World-first whale cam reveals secrets of the mysterious minke

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 06:04:11 +0000

(image)

Advanced cameras, particularly those attached to drones, have become invaluable tools for scientists studying marine life, but one creature that has remained relatively elusive is the polar-dwelling minke whale. For the first time ever, scientists have managed to slap a camera onto the mammal's back as it swam through the icy waters of Antarctica, surprising researchers with its speed and seemingly voracious appetite.

Land ho! Plants may have left the sea much earlier than we thought

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 04:54:46 +0000

(image)

Most of what we know about the deep history of life on Earth comes from fossils, and according to that record, plants migrated from the sea onto land about 420 million years ago. But the story told by those dusty old rocks is patchy at best. New research led by the University of Bristol has wound back the evolutionary clock to determine that plants likely invaded dry land much earlier, about 500 million years ago.

Stelia uses 3D printing to create self-reinforcing aircraft fuselage panel

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 02:48:21 +0000

(image)

French-based Stelia Aerospace demonstrates that 3D printing has the potential to go large when it comes to aircraft construction by unveiling the first printed self-reinforcing fuselage panel. The one-m² (10.7-ft²) metal demonstrator panel is a one-piece unit with its web of stiffeners directly printed on instead of being added later and was constructed as part of the DEveloppement de la Fabrication Additive pour Composant TOpologique (DEFACTO) project to demonstrate the viability of large-scale 3D printing in aerospace design and manufacturing.
