Solar 3D Printer

MIT researchers have just created a solar-powered robot that can 3D print the entire basic structure of a building using on-site materials. A user could customize the structure any way they see fit, thanks to a vehicle with one large robotic arm with a second smaller and more precise arm at the end. The vehicle also comes equipped with a scoop, so that it can help prepare the building area and pick up building materials on its own. They recently showcased the technology by building a 12-foot high, 50-foot wide dome out of foam-insulation framework, in just 14-hours.

1,000HP Lucid Air


Sure, the first 250 Lucid Air models will be priced from $160,000, but it definitely has the power, and luxuries to back it up. Its two electric motors combine to produce an impressive 1,000-horsepower, and the company plans to offer a 100kWh battery pack as standard, alongside a higher-capacity 130kWh battery pack as an option. Its Alpha Speed prototype recently was tested at TRC Ohio's 7.5-mile oval test track where it hit an electronically-limited 217mph.

JB10 Jetpack

JetPack Aviation has just unveiled its latest jetpack prototype, and it's called the JB10. It enables humans to soar up to 10,000 feet in the air at speeds of 68 miles per hour. How? It draws power from two diesel-powered jet turbine engines, and while flying, users lean forward to move / speed up, and lean back to slow down. The right handle controls thrust and throttle, and the left handle governs how much you spin. That's not all, it can also be equipped with an automatic inflation system, one that releases a float bag in seconds if you should hit water in an emergency landing.

Tesla T1

Unlike Tesla's current electric cars, the T1 is based on the Gorlov Vertical Wind Turbine Concept, one in which incorporates individual turbines into each of the four wheels that channel air through ducts into a fifth and final turbine in the rear. This lets the vehicle run on renewable wind-generated energy, increasing acceleration and power. Its "Dynamic Axis System" allows the T1 to turn from the center of both axis, improving handling, since this shortens the wheelbase, thus making it far more agile.

Lithium-ion Battery Recycled Glass

UC Riverside researchers have developed a low-cost method of turning glass bottles into functional lithium-ion batteries that store nearly 4-times more energy than conventional batteries. The team, headed by Cengiz Ozkan, professor of mechanical engineering, and Mihri Ozkan, professor of electrical engineering at UC Riverside, used a 3-step process. First, they crushed and grounded the glass bottles into a fine white powder. Next, the silicon dioxide is converted into nanostructured silicon, and lastly, the silicon nanoparticles get coated with carbon. Future applications include: extending the range of plug-in hybrid electric / electric vehicles, and providing extra power with fewer charges to laptops, cell phones, and other mobile devices.

Kitty Hawk Flyer

Backed by Google's Larry Page, the Kitty Hawk Flyer was designed for use over fresh water, and is [owered by a series of propellers. This means that the vehicle can take off and land vertically, thus making it a breeze to fly over a lake than by using a seaplane or boat. Riders are positioned like they would a motorcycle, with two joysticks as the controls. Best of all, it doesn't require registration or a pilot's license, and is expected to hit showrooms by the end of 2017. Click here to view the first image in this week's geek life gallery.

DARPA Tern Drone

DARPA's Tern is basicaly a tailsitter drone that reinvents Convair's XFY-1 aircraft's technology from 1951. It seeks to greatly increase the effectiveness of forward-deployed small-deck ships such as destroyers and frigates by enabling them to serve as mobile launch and recovery sites for specially designed unmanned aerial systems (UASs). In times of war, it's capable of carrying up to 600 pounds of ordinance and designed to conduct combat strikes. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

The Lilium Jet

Lilium Aviation has revealed The Lilium Jet, "the world's first all-electric VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) jet". This flying car of sorts is powered by 36 electric jet engines. The final production model will be self-piloted with artificial intelligence, and customers will be able to book a flight using their smartphone, just like you would a ride-sharing service. "It's the same battery that you can find in any Tesla. The battery consumes 90 percent less than current drone aircraft. The craft has a flight speed of 186 mph with a range of 186 miles per charge," said company co-founder Patrick Nathen. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
