Meet the futuristic personal transportation vehicle coming to China and U.S. soon

IMG_3412

Leo Liu still remembers the first time he saw a “personal transportation” machine.

“I was an industrial engineering student at University of Florida, and I saw a group of people ride around campus standing completely upright on giant wheels,” he recalls. “They were Segways. I thought to myself, ‘those are very cool, but they’re a bit bulky and unwieldy.”

Harley Davidson’s first electric bike

IMG_3363

Remember this iconic motorcycle? It was used by Scarlett Johansson aka The Black Widow in an engaging chase sequence in the 2015 movie, ‘Avengers: TNNhe age of Ultron’. Bike lovers were particularly awed by the jet-turbine like sound from the bike as Black Widow skillfully maneuvered it through approximately ten cars at high speed, chasing Ultron’s mercenaries at its best speed.

1800 miles per hour: ultra fast charging tech moving far faster than anticipated

IMG_2914

Many who reject the option of an electric vehicle say that they’ll consider one only when EVs have the range for occasional long-distance drives and can recharge about as quickly as you can refill a car’s tank with gasoline. Well, that time is nearly here—a lot sooner than even many experts in charging technology anticipated.

The future of car-charging is freaky

Car carger u7w9

Embodying Tesla’s unabashedly fearless attitude towards tech, Serbian designer Darko Markovic decided to combine the three things that the car company isn’t afraid of exploring. A. Drones, B. Autonomous Charging (remember that snake arm?), and C. Presenting futuristic technology in a way that impresses some, but scares others!

Recharge station gives SkyX drones potentially unlimited range

SkyX 2

Drones built by Canadian company SkyX may never have to return home now that the company has developed xStation, a remote recharging platform that allows drones to hop from station to station while working out in the field. These stations could give the drones a near-indefinite range, as New Atlas points out.

New “Instantly Rechargeable” Battery

instantly rechargable battery

Purdue researchers have developed technology for an “instantly rechargeable” battery that is affordable, environmentally friendly, and safe. Currently, electric vehicles need charging ports in convenient locations to be viable, but this battery technology would allow drivers of hybrid and electric vehicles to charge up much like drivers of conventional cars refill quickly and easily at gas stations.

Disney creates room that can wirelessly charge hundreds of devices

disney wireless

Wireless charging was all the rage in smartphones a few years ago, but most device makers have backed off on the technology. Many phones simply charge super-fast via a cable now. The wireless charging fatigue is due in part to the range limitation of the technology. True wireless power is still a no-go in consumer technology, but Disney Research has developed a version that might work in the future. Its volumetric wireless power system can keep hundreds of devices powered with no wires whatsoever. The main drawback: you have to live in a metal box.
