First Drive: 2017 Jeep Compass storms the middle ground

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 01:27:19 +0000

(image)

The all-new 2017 Jeep Compass is a very stylish, very well-executed little crossover. Gone are the cheap interior and boxy styling of the previous Compass and in comes a design based on the flagship Grand Cherokee model. We recently took several versions of the compact crossover for a spin both on and off the pavement. Here's our first drive impressions.

Nanoparticles of rare metal and light convert carbon dioxide into fuel

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 00:37:25 +0000

(image)

Using just light and tiny nanoparticles of the rare metal rhodium, researchers at Duke University have found a way to help turn carbon dioxide into one of the building blocks of many fuels. The newly discovered chemical reaction could use natural sunlight to reduce growing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere and lead to the development of alternative energies without the creation of unwanted byproducts like toxic carbon monoxide.

Fiber-reinforced hydrogel is 5 times stronger than steel

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 23:20:10 +0000

(image)

Hydrogels are made of hydrophilic polymer chains that absorb up to 90 percent water. They've shown significant potential in everything from wound dressings to soft robots, but their applications have been limited from their lack of toughness – until now. A team of scientists at Hokkaido University have developed a new set of hydrogel composites or "fiber-reinforced soft composites" that combine hydrogels with woven fiber fabric to create a material that is five times stronger than carbon steel.

NASA's next Orion flight could be manned

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 23:34:11 +0000

(image)

NASA may get back into manned spaceflight sooner than thought. At the direction of NASA Acting Administrator Robert Lightfoot, a study is being conducted into feasibility of placing a crew of two on the first integrated flight of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and the Orion spacecraft, Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1), in 2019.

First Toyota fuel cell bus rolls into Tokyo

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 23:23:53 +0000

(image)

Toyota has delivered the first of its Fuel Cell (FC) buses to the Bureau of Transportation of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government that will run on a regular route starting in March, with a second bus delivery that month. The 76-passenger green bus uses two solid polymer electrolyte Toyota Fuel Cell System (TFCS) units cranking out 114 kW each and is the first of an anticipated fleet of 100 such vehicles being deployed in the run up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Ford GT gets striped in carbon fiber and readied for more performance

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 11:02:05 +0000

(image)

When a car is as limited and in-demand as the Ford GT, you might think there's little need or room for special editions - every single one is pretty damn special. But that hasn't proven the case in Dearborn. Last year, Ford celebrated Le Mans triumphs of the past with the '66 Heritage Edition and this year it's reaching out to competitors on smaller stages with the new Competition Series. The track-focused GT drops weight and lowers center of gravity with help from a major dose of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials.

Agricultural robot scrutinizes plants so that we don't have to

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 23:26:46 +0000

(image)

Phenotyping is the process of observing the physical characteristics of a plant in order to assess its health. Although a necessary part of crop breeding, it's also a very tedious and time-consuming task, particularly when you've got a whole field full of plants to inspect … it's exactly the sort of job that it would be good to get a robot to do. Led by Prof. Stephen P. Long, a team at the University of Illinois has created just such a beast.

Tiny bubbles could lead to big advances in holography

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 22:00:32 +0000

(image)

If there's one thing that sci-fi movies and TV shows love, it's the idea of holographic displays that people can walk around and view from different angles, without any special headgear. Well, researchers from Japan's Utsunomiya University have come a step closer to making such technology a practical reality. They've created a system in which lasers are used to create tiny bubbles, which in turn make up three-dimensional images within a column of clear liquid.

Turbo meets hybrid to create new flagship Panamera

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 20:26:40 +0000

(image)

Porsche has been rapidly expanding its hybrid range since the 918 Spyder launch, giving buyers of the Cayenne and Panamera the option of a battery boost. But up until now, its hybrid models had all been based on less powerful V6-engined cars rather than the full-fat turbocharged range-toppers. That all changes with the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.

Lockheed Martin supersonic jet hits the wind tunnel – in model form

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 20:23:32 +0000

(image)

Last March, NASA announced that as part of its New Aviation Horizons initiative, Lockheed Martin had been chosen to develop a manned demonstrator aircraft called the Quiet Supersonic Technology (QueSST) X-plane. It would be used to test technologies that would make commercial supersonic aircraft quiet enough to fly over land. Eleven months later, Lockheed and the agency are ready to take the next step as a nine-percent scale model starts wind tunnel tests at the Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.

Bike safety gizmo looks like it's straight outta Star Wars

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 20:19:45 +0000

(image)

Safety-conscious cyclists could get themselves a separate tail light, brake light, turn indicator system, rear-view camera and crash detector … or they could soon get all of those things in one device, in the form of the Hexagon. Not only does it pack several features into one gadget, but it also looks a lot like Darth Vader's TIE fighter.

Yamaha revamps its entry-level motorcycle range with the YS125

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 19:43:51 +0000

(image)

With new European emission norms coming into force this year, Yamaha's successful YBR125 commuter had to be either updated or replaced. Juggling a bit of both, the YS125 is built around the same running gear, with sportier styling and a redesigned engine for lower fuel consumption and longer range.

NASA snaps pics of the world's largest solar farm from space

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 18:39:35 +0000

(image)

With renewable energy on the rise, it makes perfect sense for the title "world's largest solar plant" to change hands pretty quickly. In 2014 for example, the 550 MW Topaz Solar Farm held the title, to be toppled in November by a 648 MW plant in Kamuthi India. At this point in time, China's Dam Solar Park has risen above them all with 850 MW of capacity, and NASA has now provided some imagery that offers a different perspective on all that clean, green power.

France is raising drone-killing eagles

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 16:27:40 +0000

(image)

We've covered quite a few creative approaches to defending airspace from illegal drones, but if there's a cooler example than this we'd like to see it. The French military has been training baby eagles to mature into natural drone-hunters with the ability to snatch the aircraft out of the air mid-flight, local press reports.

Musicon looks like a barrel of music-creation fun

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 16:20:53 +0000

(image)

Learning to make music should be fun. It should also be easy. Traditional instruments like guitar and piano can be tough for youngsters, but composing and performing on the Musicon is as simple as pushing a button. Well, maybe more than one. The huge wooden sound lab works a bit like a barrel organ, where raised pegs cause an instrument to sound when they hit key levers.

Can three-cylinder Fiesta ST keep the party going?

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 15:47:32 +0000

(image)

It's been around for almost four years, but the current Ford Fiesta ST remains one of our favourite hot hatches. With an effervescent little turbo four and playful chassis, you'd be hard pressed to find a more exciting package on a backroad, but its dated interior and styling were in desperate need of a refresh. The new ST aims to address those issues with a fresh look and more tech, while the existing four has been replaced with a turbocharged three-cylinder engine.
