Big Breakthrough for Massless Energy Storage

Big Breakthrough for Massless Energy Storage

Researchers have produced a structural battery that performs ten times better than all previous versions. It contains carbon fibre that serves simultaneously as an electrode, conductor, and load-bearing material. Their latest research breakthrough paves the way for essentially 'massless' energy storage in vehicles and other technology.

EHang to Build Eco-Sustainable Vertiport in Italy

EHang to Build Eco-Sustainable Vertiport in Italy

EHang Holdings Limited and Giancarlo Zema Design Group have designed and will build an eco-sustainable vertiport in Italy. The vertiport will use green design and construction materials, and can generate energy to recharge the EH216 passenger-grade AAVs. Vertiports will play a significant role in the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) market and the new era of flight. When integrated into the existing transportation infrastructure, vertiports can serve as aerial hubs for tourists.

Reality Checking the IOT story

Reality Checking the IOT story

Market research companies of all sizes generally pitch the 2020 market for Internet of Things at $200-£500 billion. They cite the leading players as companies with around that in total sales! These companies have mostly been large for quite a while so have their traditional businesses collapsed and been replaced by this great new thing? There is no evidence for that. So what do the pundits say these massive sums consist of?
