Electric Motorcycle Johammer J1


02 01 03 04

Check Johammer J1, an electric motorcycle out of Austria that is styled like nothing else on the road. The work of one Johann Hammerschmid and his small team of experts, the Johammer J1 features a number of notable design decisions, including the electric motor being integrated into the rear wheel, a front wheel that uses hub-center steering and a double wishbone style front suspension mechanism, and side mirrors that offer a high-resolution display showing speed, range and other vital bits of data.

Onewheel Self Balancing Electric Skateboard

The key to the simple balancing act — lean forward to go faster, lean back to stop or reverse — is the advanced gadgetry inside the Onewheel. Built-in sensors and key-component algorithms work in conjunction with the direct drive hub motor. It’s powered by a 48v Lithium Nano-phosphate battery, and charging happens in as little as 20 minutes. While it doesn’t reach speeds of 88 mph, we think the 12 mph is still faster than walking.

Electric Helicopter E-Volo VC200


06 05 03 02 01 general

The E-Volo VC200  has become the first electric helicopter to make a successful maiden flight, with multiple flights lasting several minutes and reaching heights of nearly 22 meters high. Together with 18-rotor blades and a disassemblable architectural system, the volocopter has been designed to host two passengers for distances of up to 100km and a flight altitude of up to 6500 ft. Equipped with an automated control system, the pilot no longer needs to worry about flight conditions: the E-copter is controlled via on-board computers that work in coordination with numerous hi-tech sensors. All parts connect to an intelligent mesh network. In the event of a failure of several components, the low-maintenance aircraft is still able to land safely. The construction of the helicopter integrates six rotor arms with three drives which are supplied from different energy sources. Each is powered by 20 independent computers, capable of individually navigating the volocopter in mid-air. In the current prototype of the VC200, the 18 drives are supplied by six central battery blocks with a reserve capacity of 50%; even when two battery blocks fail, a safe landing is possible.

Tesla’s Are Going Android.

Tesla is often seen as the Apple of car makers so Elon Musk’s decision to update the current flagship Model S with a Google Chrome web browser and Android emulating OS could surprise some.  The company’s CEO made the announcement at a special Tesla event in Munich, Germany this week, but pointed out that the changes will not happen overnight.  So, from late next year Tesla customers will be able to access the internet in-car via Google’s Chrome, and the informatics platform will be fully Android-compatible — it currently runs a version of Linux that can support modified Android and iOS apps — meaning that it will be easy for developers to write Tesla-specific apps or to port existing Android apps to run on the car’s software systems.

As well as being the pure electric vehicle with the longest range on a single battery charge currently in production, the Tesla Model S also has the largest touchscreen interface of any road car.  The 17-inch system not only offers an online connection and access to the vehicle’s navigation system, but also replaces many of the analogue switches and dials — for features such as air conditioning — that litter most vehicle cabins.  However creating something that takes full advantage of a display more than twice the size of the average tablet could take some doing on the part of Android app developers — Apple CEO Tim Cook has described most tablet apps on Google Play as simply stretched smartphone apps.

Scrooser – Electric Scooter

Scooters are great, they’re supposed to make distances in cities shorter thanks to some pushes. Problem is, you arrive at your meeting with a lot of sweat and have to change and lose time again. Enters Scrooser. Being a mix between the scooter and a cruiser, the Scrooser is a kind of Harley Davidson for sidewalks. With a little bit of electronic, one foot push is worth 4 traditional pushes. Of course, it allows both fast travelling and relaxed cruising.

Renault Twizy Sport F1 Electric Concept


general 01

Renault represented their latest concept – the Twizy Sport F1 – which was designed to crank up the performance of your average electric car with its kinetic energy recovery system (KERS), similar to that used in its formula 1 race cars. The result is six times the power output — almost 100 horsepower — which pushes the car from 0-62 in the same time as the Renault Mégane Renaultsport 265. As for the exterior, the futuristic Twizy looks like a curious mix between a smart car, lunar rover, and bobcat construction vehicle and features a front splitter, side-pods, rear wing, and a diffuser with an F1-style rain light. This light is controlled with a colorful gamepad-like steering wheel on the inside, which also controls the KERS, radio and rain light.

Volkswagen’s new hybrid car looks like one super machine from sci-fi movies. The XL1 is the most unique car in the current age of world. It is hand-built and optimized to achieve maximum from aerodynamic shell and lower gravity. The XL1 plug-in hybrid system gives a remarkable mileage of 100km in just 0.9 liter of fuel. XL1 uses a 47hp, two-cylinder engine and a 20 kW (27 hp) electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery. Together the energy takes it from 0-62mph in 12.7 seconds and to the top speed of nearly 100 mph.
