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.
Superstar Robot Packers Superstar Customers
The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci.
Big Business in Italy
CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living
Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists
CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the
head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University. For a great news blog, go to Important Innovations Collection: Breakthrough on CTE Brain Injuries from Sports: First Test for CTE in the Living Source: Stock Image Game-changing Discovery by Boston University…
New Invention: Tablet Toothpaste "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 chemicals. You pop the pill in your mouth, cr…
