The Flying Car Comes to Market

The first car that you can fly has made its way to the market. For 194,000 dollars it can be yours by 2010.

VAPSTER Fuel System Offers Huge Increase in Fuel Mileage

Vapor delivery systems are nothing new. It is a well known fact that the vapor from gasoline burns, not the liquid, which is why we get all the videos of people trying to put out a match in a tank of fuel. Taking this fact, it becomes apparent that we could greatly increase the efficiency of our engines by vaporizing the fuel before it is ignited. Gerald Rowley has developed a system that does just that.

Department of Defense Calls for Your Robotic Skills

Sadly, they aren't going to let you pilot the Predator, but what they are asking for is a robotic design that is capable of finding/tracking a "non-cooperative human subject." It must also be able to communicate with other robots of similar design, essentially allowing them to hunt in a pack.

Nuclear Physics Could Lead to More Efficient Engine Designs

The oil in your engine. We all know what it does, but how efficiently does it work? Until just recently that question was unanswered, but thanks to some research conducted by Nissan, we have a much better understanding of the mechanics behind it. The result could be more efficient engines in the near future.
