We Are Totally Smitten By This 70s Vintage-Look Moped That Does 60MPH

So, you think moped is dead? Well, it is not and it never did ‘die’. It is always there, but today, we simply called it electric bicycles, or pedal-assist electric bicycle. But there is a major difference between an electric bicycle and a moped: a moped usually looks like a motorcycle. Call it a motorcycle-wannabe or whatever, but it does have its appeal (mostly because it looks like a motorcycle but does not require a license to ride). Moped is probably not huge in the stateside, but across the pond and in Europe, it is quite a huge deal, or at least it was anyways.

Here’s The Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter That You May Not Know Existed

The soon-to-be-listed China electronics giant/handset maker Xiaomi is really the provision shop of gadgets. Man, there’s nothing this company does not want to make. Xiaomi’s products are coming onto the market too fast, too furious and odds are, we may miss some interesting stuff every now and then. Speaking of missing, the Xiaomi Mi Electric Scooter is one of those interesting products we have missed. Initially, I thought of just letting it past, but then I saw it in person and boy, was I smitten by it. To be clear, I did not test drive it, but I did “caressed” it for a bit and I was impressed by both its aesthetic, the attention to detail and the build.

Spanish Volta BCN Electric Motorbike Is Futuristic And So Is The Price

This is Spanish electric motorbike maker Volta Motorbikes’ Volta BCN electric motorbike. It is as futuristic as it is beautiful. It may look as out of this world as the snail we saw a few years ago, but it is futuristic enough to keep me ogling over it, With an output of 25 kW, Volta BCN Electric Motorbikes is not exactly the most powerful and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) and a range of 70-100 clicks (43-62 miles), it is neither the quickest nor the furthest, but boy, is it a beauty.

SeaBubbles Wants To Do For The Rivers What Uber Did For The Roads

While most companies are looking to the sky to skip the horrendous urban traffic, one French startup, SeaBubbles, is looking to the rivers for answers to one of the most pressing urbanization issues. And SeaBubbles’ answer? River taxis. But mind you, they are not just any river taxi. It will be autonomous, electric-driven and quick – thanks to hydrofoil technology each of these water cars will be riding on. The aim? To provide a river transportation network much like what Uber did for the roads. But what SeaBubbles is embarking on is clearly requires a lot more work and ironically, networking, before even a network of these vessels could take off above the water.

Elon Musk Reveals The Boring Co.’s Plan and Futuristic Urban Loop System

As the dust settles on The Boring Company’s rather prolific product, a flamethrower, Elon Musk lets the world in on the real mission of his latest startup, or should we say, a readjustment of the company’s priorities. Announced via Twitter, the serial tech entrepreneur who has been increasingly obsessed with mass transportation said that The Boring Company will be “prioritizing the construction of a dedicated transport system for cyclists and pedestrians.” Continue reading Elon Musk Reveals The Boring Co.’s Plan and Futuristic Urban Loop System

How Hoverboards Work Not In Back To The Future II

You can thank the the Segway for modern hoverboard scooters. At the time it was groundbreaking technology that allowed people to basically, just stand while moving to another place, like a moving conveyor-belt on wheels. Today, we live in the age of the hoverboard, though our current models have wheels and they don’t really hover. The next phase of the self-balancing scooter will turn us all into Marty McFly from Back To The Future II, surfing the air like a pro. Continue reading How Hoverboards Work Not In Back To The Future II

Elon Musk Confirms A Tesla Pickup Truck Is In The Pipeline… After Model Y

If you can recall, during the Tesla Semi unveiling event, Tesla also made a surprise (or maybe not…) announcement of the second-generation Tesla Roadster and more crucially, tease something that sets the heart of fans of Tesla and pickup enthusiasts’ heart fluttering. It was a pickup truck. A supersize one, to be exact, shown in a render that had a bed huge enough to swallow a F-150 Supercrew almost whole. Wait. That’s no pickup truck. It’s a truck and if the render was a projection of Elon Musk’s mind, then that thing there is probably of a Unimog class truck.

Formula 1-Inspired Hoverboard May Just Rekindle Hoverboard’s Popularity

The hoverboard fever pitch may be is over, but we thought the F1 Gyroor Hoverboard may just bring that fever back up. Why? Because it is not just another copycat hoverboard; it is style very distinctively, after the adrenaline pumping, world class race car series Formula 1 race cars. Believe me that when I say it is style after Formula 1 Race Cars, I do mean F1 race cars. Don’t believe? Just look at the board. It does look like the front end of a Formula 1 Race Car, doesn’t it? It is UL 2272 certified, uses LG/Samsung battery cells and passed CE, RoHS and FCC certification, and therefore, you can be sure it is like a Formula 1 race car which won’t go up in flames. Continue reading Formula 1-Inspired Hoverboard May Just Rekindle Hoverboard’s Popularity

What Does The New Tesla Semi Mean For The Future?

The release of Tesla’s answer to trucking, the Tesla Semi, may not be so interesting to the average consumer. We were more blown away by the Tesla Roadster 2.0 with its 1.9s 0-60 time and its incredible top speed. Don’t ignore the Tesla Semi just yet, however, because it is one of the most important milestones that will be remembered for years to come.
