Comments Off on Formula E unveils the next generation of all-electric racing

The all-electric Forumla E racing series is set to get a major update for its fifth season, which kicks off at the end of 2018. Spark Racing Technology won the contract to build the second-generation race car bodies for the series fifth season and has just revealed the initial renderings, and they are simply stunning! Spark Racing Technology currently builds the race car bodies that run now in the competition, but the French company hopes to make some major improvements to its new design, including improved aerodynamics and lighter weight. The improvements will not only improve the efficiency of the race car’s battery , but also make the cars faster.

Spark still has to work with chassis manufacturing partner Dallara, which may make the final car look quite different. Either way, unlike road cars , which get toned down from the original concepts, the final version of Spark’s new race car could be even more extreme. Another big update that we’ll see in the fifth season is a new battery that is being developed by McLaren , Sony, and Atieva that will give the race cars a much longer driving range, which will last the entire race. Currently drivers have to swap out the batteries during the race. + Spark Racing Technologies All images @ Spark Racing Technologies

Comments Off on Elegant No Glue No Screw Lamp is Made From Recycled Wood and a Chinese Lantern

Recently spotted at New Designers exhibition in London, this long and lean wooden lamp is made with neither glue nor screws. Designed by recent Plymouth University graduate Dan Murley , the design is made from pieces of scrap wood left over from the creation of a chair. The svelte wooden lamp was originally created with a shiny-blue recycled aluminum shade, but for the New Designers show it featured a recycled Chinese lantern that provides the piece with an exotic, yet minimal aesthetic.
