Once billed as the world's fastest production electric boat and the world's fastest production hydrofoiling craft, the Valo Hyperfoil has now hit the water as a working alpha prototype – but curiously, its claimed top speed has dropped considerably.Continue ReadingCategory: Marine, TransportTags: Hydrofoil, Jetski, PWC, Electric Boats

The eVTOL space as a whole is definitely starting to look distinctly grown-up in 2023, transitioning from the crazy rush of concepts and ideas a few years ago into a broadly careful, measured and sensible sort of sector that's going through the exhaustive process of getting these machines ready for certification and manufacture.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: eVTOL, Electric Ai
hexagonal holes cover wilson’s 3D-printed airless basketball prototype to let the air freely flow, helping the ball bounce. The post wilson debuts 3D-printed airless basketball prototype with hexagon holes appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Remember the Terrafugia Transition flying car, out of Massachusetts? Terrafugia was acquired by Chinese giant Geely in 2017, after which it pivoted to designing transitioning eVTOLs, and then was more or less shut down and relocated to China in 2021. Geely then put some US$55 million into German eVTOL company Volocopter, started up a subsidiary called Aerofugia in Chengdu, and set up a joint vent
Video chats came into their own during the COVID-19 pandemic, providing an audiovisual lifeline for fragmented families and social groups, as well as keeping remote-working teams in touch. But they seem rather flat and low-tech compared to the telepresence booth concept presented by Logitech at ISE 2023 this week.Continue ReadingCategory: Telecommunications, TechnologyTags: Logitech, Video Callin
Transitioning electric VTOL aircraft designs have been everywhere for the last few years, but the majority are either simple lift and cruise designs, with separate horizontal and vertical thrust systems, or vectored-thrust designs that tilt their propulsion systems independently from their wings.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: eVTOL, Air Taxis, AFWERX, Electric Aircraft, Modula
Looking like a cross between a helicopter and a fixed-wing airplane, ASKA’s full-scale A5 eVTOL prototype is currently capable of both driving and flying. It stole the show at CES 2023, earlier this month.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: eVTOL, CES 2023
