The Crown has claimed regulatory control of every means of conveyance, stifling the free travel of individuals and their property. This is an intolerable act. Superior transportation technologies already exist, but are suppressed by regulations.
One thing nearly all air taxi concepts share in common is fast-spinning propellers or ducted fans somewhere outside the aircraft's fuselage, pushing air to develop thrust whichever way they're pointed.
In 2014, no less an authority than NASA proclaimed in peer-reviewed papers that it was getting mysterious thrust from the EmDrive, a strange, brassy trumpet of a thing that its creators claimed could produce thrust with no propellant.
Germany's Lilium has announced a 7-seat version of its gorgeous eVTOL air taxi, as well as plans to have a commercial operation up and running by 2024. Oh, and like approximately every other eVTOL company, it's headed to the NASDAQ through a SPAC.
On Friday, February 14th, 2020: #Jetman? Vince Reffet took off, headed south towards Jumeirah Beach Residence, building speed and height. In 8 seconds he had reached 100 meters height, in 12 seconds 200m, 19 seconds 500m, and reached 1000m in 30 se
It's 2021, and although I thought by now there would be flying cars, cities on the moon and the ability to teleport from my bed to my couch instead of walking, I guess I'll settle for a jet pack, or as DARPA is calling it, a "Portable Personal
We've written plenty about hydrogen's potential as a transformative technology for green aviation; in gaseous form, hydrogen offers an energy density much higher than lithium batteries, and that offers a genuine path toward the decarbonization of sho
Cairn Energy Research Advisors reports that Tesla has the lowest cost batteries by at least 10% and over 24% versus other car companies. This is before the cost reductions that Tesla is implementing from 2020 Battery Day.
Robert Zubrin has proposed using rotating membranes to create Enormous Space Telescopes (ESTs) that can scale to over 1000 meter diameter or match current space telescopes for thousands of time lower cost. They would also not require the construction
What a difference 400 years makes! AI 'Mayflower' will make groundbreaking crew-less crossing of Atlantic next month powered by solar energy: Craft will chart same 3,000-mile route taken by ship that brought 102 Pilgrims to America in 1620
A speedy all-electric aircraft being developed with one eye on the record books has taken another step forward, with Rolls-Royce taking its Spirit of Innovation plane to the runway for the very first time.
Four major manufacturers have committed to developing a standardized swappable battery system for electric motorcycles, opening up the possibility of quick-swap battery banks at service stations, servicing a range of brands and models.
Right now, the entire electric VTOL scene is a house built on a foundation of faith. Faith that the hordes of researchers beavering away on next-gen battery technology will achieve an enormous energy density breakthrough, or faith that hydrogen fuel
Just as technology has underpinned economic growth for decades, the future of flying electric taxis will revolutionize transportation while transforming urban mobility into a greener, zero-emissions world.
Life on the bachelor bus: Massachusetts man, 27, spends $24,000 transforming an old school bus into a dream traveling home with electric fireplace and rooftop terrace after losing his job and fiancé during the pandemic
This initiative is part of the UK's Future Flight Challenge, which is using some £125 million (US$171 million) of government cash and a further £175 million (US$239 million) from the industrial sector to fund a wide range of projects related to el
Fraunhofer researchers have presented a magnesium-based "Powerpaste" that stores hydrogen energy at 10 times the density of a lithium battery, offering hydrogen fuel cell vehicles the ability to travel further than gasoline-powered ones, and refuel i
