Compact camper vans have come a long, long way since the ’50s and ’60s, when the only amenity was a mattress tossed on a cold steel floor. RVs have upped the ante with stoves, sinks, and makeshift showers and toilets, but traditional vans lagged behind with no toilets, a major inconvenience for many who love living on the road . The Nugget Plus, a new camper van from Ford and Westfalia, is here to change that. Westfalia and Ford have joined forces and designed the Nugget Plus, a camper van that has the normal trappings of a kitchen, as well as a double bed in the pop-up roof and one that rests atop the dining table at nightfall. It goes above and beyond other camper vans, though, by including the coveted feature of a toilet.

It includes a retractable screen for visual privacy, and a small drop-down sink sits opposite the bathroom. In addition to its unusual toilet feature, the Nugget includes dining space for five people, a fridge and a two-burner stove. The Nugget also has two 11-gallon (42-liter) fresh and waste water tanks and an EcoBlue Euro 5 diesel engine. And if you happen to have $72,500 to spare, it could be yours. + Westfalia/Ford Images via Westfalia/Ford

Jet photo from Shutterstock Thanks to scientists harnessing the power of chemistry, you may one day soon fly in a plane fueled by plants. An article published in the journal Nature last week describes a new technique developed by researchers at UC Berkeley that can create biofuels powerful enough to be used as jet fuel. Created using bacterial fermentation and chemical catalysis , the amped up biofuel is ten times more powerful, and it can serve as a viable power source for large industrial vehicles and airplanes.
