Toyota revealed new details about the FCV Plus concept car. This is a hydrogen-powered vehicle that can also serve as a home power plant. It may produce electricity for needs other than powering its own motors.
Last year, the Japanese company Toyota unveiled an innovative hydrogen powered FCV Plus. Now the manufacturer has revealed more information about him, which shows that it will not be just a car to carry passengers, but also a power plant to generate electricity.
The FCV Plus engine is powered by a hydrogen tank located behind the rear seats, which produces electricity for the electric motors that drive the vehicle. Toyota engineers, however, have equipped the vehicle with a solution to transform it into a mobile power plant. The car can be connected to an external source of hydrogen and then it can generate electricity for other uses without consuming it with its own fuel.
You can also remove fuel cells located between the front wheels to use them as a portable power generator, for example, to supply your home energy in the event of a break in delivery.
The current version of FCV Plus is slightly different from last year’s prototype. The vehicle has been reduced slightly, now its dimensions are 380 x 175 x 154 cm, and additionally reduced slightly weight. With less weight and more aerodynamic body, the range of the vehicle has also improved.…
Most smartphone owners are unaware of how much data they use running apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and more. Soberness comes at the time of consumption of the entire Internet package.
Unlimited mobile internet is not that popular yet, and most users use limited data packets. However, these can be quickly consumed, especially if they are used in the background continuously.
The good news is that you can easily avoid the uncontrolled use of your data package. All you have to do is install Opera Max, which has just been equipped with a completely new feature that informs the wearer of the data. The tool provides a notification that tells which app gets or sends the data, and how big is the transfer. To do this, you can set a limit, after which we will receive notifications.…
From the bottom of the Baltic Sea, scuba divers scooped parts of the wreckage of the famous 16th-century Mars ship belonging to the fleet of Swedish King Eritrea XIV Vasa. It was the largest war ship that floated in the Baltic Sea in the sixteenth century.
Cannons from the Mars deck will be available from August in a museum in Vaestervik (east coast of Sweden).
– Large water tank is already waiting for the excavated elements. We will be analyzing it in front of the audience – said SVT television professor. Johan Roennby from the University of Soedertoern.
Scientists have been trying unsuccessfully to locate the ship for years. This was accomplished in the summer of 2011, when a group of Swedish scuba divers and archaeologists came across a wreck 75 feet (10.5 nautical miles) north of Oland. The ship was identified thanks to the coat of arms of the Vases found on one of the bronze cannons.
Mars sank in 1564, besieged by a fleet of 37 ships from Denmark and Lübeck after two days of fighting on account of the explosion of dust on board.
Built of solid oak wood, the ship was fitted with 107 guns and carried 800 people on board.
Mars is larger and older than the famous Vasa ship, sunk in 1628 and mined in 1961, which is now housed in a museum of the same name in Stockholm. Therefore, according to historians Mars is more interesting.
Professor Roennby hopes that the ship’s surface to be shipped will serve as a new tourist attraction in the future for a 1: 1 replica of the ship.…
On December 4, the 13th launch of Orion’s first space mission was launched. Test flight is to test in practice how the construction of the first vehicle designed for the manned flight to Mars.
Orion is a spaceship built to take people further than ever before. Its mission is to bring crew members into space on board, to provide an emergency return, to uphold the vital functions of passengers while traveling, and to safely land on the surface of the planet.
During the test flight, Orion (with no crew on board) circulates the Earth twice, about 5800 km (15 times higher than the ISS), and then enters the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of about 32,000. Km / h, which will warm up the protective shield of the ship up to 2200 degrees Celsius.
At the end Orion will land in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California, where the US Navy teams will be waiting for the capsule.
During the Orion EFT-1 mission, the capsule will be launched into orbit at the top of Delta IV Heavy, the heaviest variant of 70 meters and a total weight of 733000 kg.…
Experts estimate that by 2035 some 20 million people will lose their jobs because their jobs will take over. Although this is unavoidable, one might expect the machines to perform rather than complicated tasks. Meanwhile, it turns out that they can also replace … lawyers.
The best example of machine functionality in this area is the DoNotPay bot, created by Joshua Browder. This is a tool for appealing the issued credentials and for the time being addresses the mandates imposed on drivers living in New York.
Interestingly, it is extremely effective in what it does. The bot, which has started to work relatively recently and has so far appealed in the case of 250,000 mandates, and has been successful at as many as 160,000 cases, protecting people from the need to pay them.
Browder has created this tool because he believes that drivers’ mandates do not fulfill their role and that they are simply treated as a means of budgeting, so they have decided to protect New Yorkers from it. Browder announces the expansion of its service to other US cities and the development of a version of software that will assist in making referrals in other areas as well.…
