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

McFly You Bojo, Hoverboards Don’t Work on Water… Unless You’ve Got the Hoverboard by ZR!

Comments Off on McFly You Bojo, Hoverboards Don’t Work on Water… Unless You’ve Got the Hoverboard by ZR!

There have been plenty of attempts at hoverboards in the past, but none of them have really touched our Back to the Future aspirations – but this one might be even better than our dreams, at least on water. The crazy cross between a surfboard and a hovercraft allows you to fly 16 feet above the water at speeds that will have you outrunning even the most Biff-like bullies. All you need to get sky surfing is a watercraft, an hour of training and a serious sense of adventure (or desperate need to outrun your enemies).

Comments Off on Photosynthesis Bike Could Purify the Air as You Ride

Biking to work is about to get a whole lot greener. Not only are bikes better for the Earth than driving and a great way to keep in shape — but a new design concept recently unveiled by Bangkok-based Lightfog Creative & Design Company could actually purify polluted air while in use. The idea is to have an aluminum frame that generates oxygen through a “photosynthesis system,” causing a reaction between water and electric power from a lithium-ion battery.
