Students of engineering at the Swarthmore College, Alex Bell(right on the photo) and Andres Pacheco(left) have bulit a hydrogen fuel cell powered motorcycle. Powered by hydrogen, Cool!
The motorcycle is built on the chassis of a Buell cyclone which was purchased at a salvage yard. In the original internal combustion form the engine served as a structural member. Therefore when the motor was removed a piece was designed to provide the structural support needed for the swingarm, frame, motor, and rear shock connection.
The fuel cell is made by Ballard, which generate 1.2 kw power and is coupled with a 1.6hp electric motor. The pure hydrogen is stored in two Ergenics metal hydride cylinders which each can store about hold 900 std. liters of hydrogen. The inside of the cylinders are filled with a metal powder consisting of Lathnium, Nickel, and Aluminum. The metal reacts with hydrogen to form a hydride thereby storing large amounts of hydrogen at low pressure in a small volume. however, does need some heat." According to the report, after averaging in losses in propulsion, this motorcycle efficiency is expected to be 46%. If you have interest it, you can contact them at the bottom of this page.

Ford Active Park Assist

Ford Active Park Assist
Car  |  Other
Ford has announced a New Active Park Assist helps drivers parallel park with the touch of a button and without ever touching the steering wheel. In Ford's version, you just pull alongside a space and push a button. The sensors of the car will measure and calculate a a feasible parallel parking space, and prompts the driver to give the OK. After pushes the OK, the EPAS (Electronic Power Assisted Steering) will automatically steer the car into the parking space hands-free. Click 2 see big pic!!
Here's how Active Park Assist works:
• The driver activates the system by pressing an instrument panel button, which activates the ultrasonic sensors to measure and identify a feasible parallel parking space.
• The system then prompts the driver to accept the system assistance to park.
• The steering system then takes over and steers the car into the parking space hands-free. The driver still shifts the transmission and operates the gas and brake pedals.
• A visual and/or audible driver interface advises the driver about the proximity of other cars, objects and people and provides instructions.
• While the steering is all done automatically, the driver remains responsible for safe parking and can interrupt the system by grasping the steering wheel.

Available as an option on both the 2010 Lincoln MKS and the as-yet-unrevealed 2010 Lincoln MKT seven-seat crossover, Active Park Assist accompanies Ford's new Electric Power Assisted Steering.

An airplane to park on the stern of your superyacht! Danish Yacht is a modern superyacht shipyard located in Skagen in Denmark. Danish Yacht has announced its partnership with Lisa Airplanes to offer "a unique resource to the global superyacht community". The Akoya aircraft is a two-seat aircraft with folding wings on the back of Danish Yacht. The aircraft is designed to take off from land, snow or water. The aircraft features includes retractable wheels, retractable skis to enable you the freedom of landing in your properties. Now Lisa airplanes have started taking orders for it with an initial deposit of 10,000 euros.
¡°The AKOYA also uses another patented innovation from LISA Airplanes. The combination of two hydrofoils in the shape of an inverted V and retractable landing-gear make for performance over and above classic water ¡¯planes. The hydrofoils, combined with the high lift of the Ri&Flex Wing, lift the fuselage out of the water at very low speed and dispense with the need for a step or fairing. This allows the ¡¯plane to accelerate and take-off over short distances. This system of hydrofoils enables the fuselage to be very aerodynamic making the AKOYA the first ¡¯plane to be both agile in water and fast in the air.¡±Check out see the Lisa Airplane video.
