On March 22, an Audi will depart from the Golden Gate Bridge to take a 3,500 mile road trip to New York City. On the face of it, there’s nothing too remarkable about the fabled cross-country route that has been taken by many before. This trip will be a tad different: the car has been set up by electronics company Delphi , and will be the first autonomous vehicle to undertake the coast-to-coast venture.

Comments Off on 5 great reasons to build a geodesic dome home

  Dome homes . They’re kind of weird looking and they don’t exactly fit into those perfect little neighborhoods you see when walking around a cute downtown area or a clean-cut suburban gated community. But Buckminster Fuller saw the potential is those triangles: With the goal of creating a structure analogous to nature’s own designs, Fuller began to  experiment with geometry  in the late 1940s. In 1951, he patented the geodesic dome, and while you may not see a lot of on a normal city street, geodesic domes are known to be the most efficient building system available. So, why should you want a  dome home  anyway?

Comments Off on Growing trees from seeds: which seeds work, and which won’t

If there are any trees in your area, you may have noticed that a couple of major changes come over them at the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. Branches end up laden with fruit, nuts, seed pods, and cones in preparation for seeding the next generation of trees. These majestic beings have been self-propagating for hundreds of thousands of years, but what if we’d like to harness some of that growing power to start our own food-bearing trees?

Wireless electric car charging , the technology many said was too inefficient or impractical to be a success, now appears to be a top priority for many automakers and electronics suppliers. We recently told you how Daimler was testing an inductive charging system for the next-generation Mercedes E-Cell vehicle, and we already know Nissan is working on a system for the 2014 LEAF as well as quick-charging systems that can power your house in reverse. Now we’ve discovered that Evatran is making hubcap-sized wireless charging systems for both the LEAF and the Chevy Volt that should be available through Sears next year. And there’s more.
