Traits of both these larger-than-life characters become part of reality in the Tern Eclipse X20 , also known as the Pirate Ninja folding bike .

An anonymous man in his 20s who lives in Rome will soon receive a new hand, and for the first time in the world his bionic hand will be able to feel the things that it touches . The hand will be wired to the man’s nervous system, in hopes that he will be able to control its movements by receiving signals from his skin cells, and that he in turn will be able to receive signals from the hand’s touch sensors. The hand promises to restore the sense of touch to people who have lost limbs, and it represents a major breakthrough in the world of prosthetics.

Toyota to Introduce All-Electric Scion iQ Next Year

Comments Off on Toyota to Introduce All-Electric Scion iQ Next Year

Now that Toyota has dominated the hybrid market for a decade, the automaker is finally coming out with an all-electric in the U.S. to compete with other leading automakers’ offerings.  At a dealer meeting in Las Vegas, Toyota announced that it will launch the Scion iQ sometime next year. The Scion iQ is known as the Toyota iQ outside the U.S. and has existed as a super efficient gasoline engine car in other countries for a few years now.  The urban ultra compact EV will be a small four-passenger car that will have a 50 mile range, good for those who just need to get around town. The car has a 3+1 seating arrangement to optimize seating room within the small car.  Because of its smaller size, it will be interesting to see how much lower it’s priced compared to something like the LEAF, since we’ve recently seen that when it comes to EVs, price seens to be the biggest factor of all . Through its partnership with Tesla, Toyota will be coming out with an all-electric RAV4 in 2012 as well. via Treehugger

Nissan LEAF Outselling Chevy Volt

Comments Off on Nissan LEAF Outselling Chevy Volt

The Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt launched around the same time, both offering American drivers electric vehicle options.  Automobile magazine decided to see which car was most capturing the consumers’ attention and the LEAF came out as the clear winner so far.  Nissan has sold 3,875 LEAFs so far in 2011 while Chevy has sold 2,745 Volts. One would assume that the combination of all-electric and gasoline engine like the Volt offers would be more desirable to drivers right now since electric charging infrastructure is slowly expanding, but it seems that a price difference of $8,000 is a bigger factor. The LEAF costs $32,780 before tax incentives and rebates while the Volt starts at $41,000 . These sales numbers only reflect six months of activity, but this could be a great sign for automakers getting ready to release all-electric models, especially since these sell numbers include the production setback Nissan faced after the tsunami that hit Japan in March.  Nissan expects to deliver 10,000 – 12,000 vehicles by the end of 2011. via Automobile
