All Electric, Submarine Car: World 1st
All-Electric Submersible Convertible for Land and Sea
Swiss Mobility Innovation
This is the ultimate, all-electric concept car for land and sea from Switzerland. The sQuba is an all-electric vehicle that's the world's 1st fully submersible car that drives perfectly on land and underwater. And, the travel from land to underwater is seamless. It's a concept vehicle designed to demonstrate the future of mobility
Straight Out of James Bond 007
The car designer is Frank Rinderknecht and his Swiss team at the Swiss mobility lab Rinspeed. Rinderknecht has been creating innovative concept cars for forty years. The inspiration for the sQuba comes from the Lotus submarine car "Wet Nellie" that James Bond 007 drove in the 1977 movie "The Spy Who Loves Me". That car was pure fiction. The sQuba is the real thing.
The sQuba is powered by three electric motors charged by lithium ion batteries. One e-motor provides propulsion on land and the two others power the vehicle underwater. This is a submersible convertible, which Rinderknecht says keeps the vehicle much lighter and safer. It's a two-seater and the driver and passenger breathe through compression air tanks.
Awesome Mobility Technology
The vehicle is capable of stabilized floating up to a depth of 33 feet. Rinderknecht says the favorite features of the sQuba are the dive and floating underwater within the vehicle. He calls it "an out of this world experience". The sQuba is the most sought after concept car in the Rinspeed collection, particularly by movie makers and photographers. It uniquely captures the future of mobility.

No astronomical bills and upselling from lawn service companies. Just a nicely cut lawn and no hassles. Innovation seems to be knocking at the front door with news on robotic mowers. Green Robots at the Cutting Edge There's a slew of new robot mowers. Models include Worx Landroid for smaller lawns, Honda that cuts and feeds lawns, Robomow for all-purpose mowing and Husqvarna that's loaded with cell & GPS tech. These mowers aren't cheap. Prices range from $1000 to $3500. They're powered by rechargeable batteries so they're quiet. You pay more for online enhancements.

They roam and groom your lawn. Their

New Invention: Tablet Toothpaste "Change Toothpaste" Source: Change Toothpaste Potentially Cuts 900 Million Plastic Toothpaste Tube Throwaways Per Year Tubes of toothpaste aren't something you think about but their impact on the global environment is hugely negative. 900 million toothpaste tubes are discarded into oceans and landfills globally every year. Importantly, it takes 500 years for them to breakdown, which means virtually every toothpaste tube created is still discarded someplace in the world. And, the tubes, which contain multiple layers of plastic, polymers and resins, can't be recycled. A company headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta Canada just came up with a solution in the form of tablet toothpaste. "Paste with No Waste" Entrepreneurs Mike Medicoff and Damien Vince are the inventors and founders of CHANGE Toothpaste. Their tablet toothpaste is an all natural vegan substance that works just like toothpaste but has no harsh chemic
