First hydrogen-electric semi-truck, the Nikola One Unveiled (Video)

December 2, 2016 — by feedmeister0

     The Nikola One utilizes a fully electric drivetrain powered by high-density lithium batteries. Energy will be supplied on-the-go by a hydrogen fuel cell giving the Nikola One a range of 800 – 1,200 miles while delivering over 1,000 horsepower and 2,000 ft. lbs. of torque ā€“ nearly double that of any semi-truck on the road. 

     Never has a production model class 8 truck achieved best-in-class fuel efficiency while also dramatically improving performance over its diesel competition ā€“ all with zero-emissions.

MIT Electric Robot Cheetah jumping over obstacles (Video)

September 17, 2014 — by feedmeister0

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has just released new footage to youtube on September 15th of a new algorithm that they have developed for the Robotic Cheetah.  The MIT Robotic Cheetah can run up to 10 miles per hour.  The new algorithm allows the Cheetah to jump.  Watch as this Cheetah can now jump over one foot high obstacles.  Most robotic animals up to date have been powered by internal combustion engines, and hydraulic transmissions. MIT shows you that a electric powered robotic animal can run and jump over obstacles and not make all the noise of an internal combustion engine.

Harley-Davidson today revealed its first electric motorcycle, called Project LiveWire.  They describe Harley’s new electric motorcycle as a sleek, futuristic bike that hums like a jet airplane taking off.   The prototype is powered by a longitudinally-mounted electric motor rated at 74 hp and 52 lb-ft of torque, on par with H-Dā€™s 833 cc internal combustion engine. The battery-powered unit was developed with help from electric powertrain specialist Mission Motors.  Harley-Davidson says the belt-driven bike can accelerate from 0-60 mph in under four seconds, and has an electronically restricted top speed of 92 mph.


Paralyzed Patients Move Again with Spinal Stimulation using electricity (Video)

April 18, 2014 — by feedmeister0

Four patients paralyzed by spinal cord injuries are now able to move again thanks to an electrical stimulator placed at the base of the spine. Researchers say that when turned on, the stimulator emits impulses that appear to awaken injured or dormant nerve pathways.   ~please checkout the cool ads before you go, thanks for visiting~

20,000 megawatts under the sea: Oceanic steam engines

March 5, 2014 — by feedmeister0

 The oceans absorb massive amounts of solar energy, and that energy can be harnessed, they call this ‘Steampunking.’  

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) could provide 4000 times the world’s energy needs in any given year, with neither pollution nor greenhouse gases to show for it.  The oceans need to have at least 20 degrees celcius between the deep waters and the oceans surface.  Here is a great article on Steampunking.
