In addition to dreaming up its own “flying taxi,” aircraft engine maker Rolls-Royce is also working with Cranfield Aerospace Solutions, Cranfield University and UK’s luxury sports car marque, Aston Martin, on a “near future study” that explores autonomous hybrid-electric flying vehicle suitable for urban and inter-city air travel. Yes. You heard that right.

Rolls-Royce’s Idea Of Flying Taxi Is One That Has Rotors That Folds Away

Lets face it. The Fifth Element kind of flying cars is not going to realize anytime soon. Instead, you are looking at more conventional “fly cars” such as this one proposed by Rolls-Royce. The aircraft engine maker unveiled this concept personal air transportation at Farnborough Airshow. As you can see, it is a VTOL, short for vertical take-off and landing, and it is electric, hence the acronym EVTOL. Rolls-Royce said its proposed EVTOL could be use as a personal transport, public transport, logistics and adaptable to military applications.

Mini By Uno Bolt Is A Super Cool, Fast And Long Range Electric Unicycle

Remember the T-Bob-like electric unicycle by Uno Bolt? Well, the U.S.-based electric scooter maker has a new ride that’s looking even more like the cowardly robot sidekick of Scott Trakker. Simply called Mini by Uno Bolt, this updated and smaller electric unicycle is not only smaller, but way more sleeker than its larger sibling. Just think of it as the electric scooter you see today, but with only one wheel. Cool, right? Clearly, I am smitten by it.

Volvo CE And LEGO Creates Concept Wheel Loader That Has A Drone

Brilliant minds are hard at work to give machines autonomy so we could have it easy. Today, autonomous vacuum cleaner and lawnmower are already a common sight. There others too, like autonomous farming tractor and seeding robot et cetera, and today, we hear that the construction industry is embracing autonomous machinery too, starting with the LEGO Technic 42081 Volvo Concept Wheel Loader ZEUX set.

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

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

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. Continue reading SeaBubbles Wants To Do For The Rivers What Uber Did For The Roads

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
