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.

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.

Tesla’s 2nd-Gen Roadster Wows With Sleek Lines And Supercar Performance

After devoting three quarter of the time to Tesla Semi at the recent Tesla unveiling, Elon Musk finally revealed the new follow up the original Tesla Roadster called, ermmm, Tesla Roadster. Sporting a wide stance and a suspiciously Corvette-ish/NSX-ish front end, the brand new Tesla Roadster is as sleek as you would have expect from Tesla, or any roadster for that matter. Propelling the vehicle are three motors: one driving the front wheels and two driving the rear wheels. The motors are powered by a 200 kWh battery system that offers an out-of-this-world 620 miles (998 kilometers) range on a single charge… at highway speeds.

Tesla’s Electric Cargo Hauling Truck Has A Supercar Drag Coefficient

So, here it is. The much anticipated Tesla’s answer to trucking, the Tesla Semi, is finally revealed. I am not going to lie. I have not love a semi this much until now. Now, I am not a Tesla fanboy, btw, but this thing here is super sleek and the technology it has to offer would be the yardstick of the future of semis. While aesthetically fabulous, it is, however, secondary. What’s impressive here is what it can really do. For starter, it is faster than your average car, making 0-60 in 5 seconds without a trailer and way, way quicker than any diesel-powered semi. Continue reading Tesla’s Electric Cargo Hauling Truck Has A Supercar Drag Coefficient

Track1 Is A Half-track Skateboard That Wants To Take On Any Terrain

You know what fascinates us with regards to off-road (skate)board? Track(s). If it has track(s), we are already half-sold. Just half. So, naturally, when we first lay eyes on the Track1, we are, well, half-sold. Though we can’t say the same for the price. But more on that later. Seriously, look at this thing. It has oversized wheels wrapped in off-road requisite knobby tires and a wide, low-profile track that makes it perfect for some serious all-terrain actions. And it is not just any track. The track was designed from the ground up for Track1 and it is where the magic is being turned out. Continue reading Track1 Is A Half-track Skateboard That Wants To Take On Any Terrain

With Stark Mobility’s Electric Skateboard, You Are The Remote

Electric skateboard is a norm today, but 99.9 percent of them requires the use of a remote, or an app for control. Now, lets take a step back and think about it: do we really need that (the remote)? Well, Germany company Stark Mobility (no relation to the fictional Stark Industries) certainly did not think so. Armed with this resolution in mind, the company set out to create StarkBoard, the world’s first electric skateboard that leverages intelligent weight and motion tracking to put controls in your hands, or lower torso, to be precise. In other words, you are the remote. Continue reading With Stark Mobility’s Electric Skateboard, You Are The Remote

This Is Manta5, A Pedal-Assist Bicycle For The Water

If you love cycling, then you really shouldn’t let any waterbody stop your love for pedaling. Obviously, a regular bicycle can’t let you pedal on water and therefore, if you really want to continuing cycling on water, well then, you have to look to the Manta5 Hydrofoiler XE-1 Hydrofoil Bike. Also quite obviously, pedaling on water takes a lot more effort than it is on land, more so if you are expect to ride the waves hydrofoil technology has to offer and hence, Hydrofoiler XE-1 is actually a pedal-assist watercraft. So, yeah. Hydrofoiler XE-1 is basically the answer to pedal-assist bike for water. Absolutely brilliant. I think that’s one of the things missing from my life. Continue reading This Is Manta5, A Pedal-Assist Bicycle For The Water

GM’s SURUS Platform Is The Future Of Trucks With Autonomous Capabilities

No. The thing you see up there is not a glorified, oversized electric skateboard. Though it might very well be if there are giants that live among us.

It is the next-generation of mobility leveraging on flexible fuel cell electric platform which, when paired with autonomous capabilities, is GM’s answer to the “toughest transportation challenges” posed by “natural disasters, complex logistics environments and global conflicts.” Continue reading GM’s SURUS Platform Is The Future Of Trucks With Autonomous Capabilities
