Chinese scientists have built the world’s first hydrogen-powered tram In an effort to mitigate the ridiculous amounts of smog that cloud China’s biggest cities, local scientists have teamed up to develop the world’s first hydrogen-fuelled tram. Manufactured by the Sifang Company, which is a subsidiary of the China South Rail Corporation, in conjunction with several research institutions around the country, it gets enough power from one tank of hydrogen to travel 100 kilometres at a top speed of 70 km/h, and can transport at least 380 passengers at a time. The vehicle, which has been in development for the past two years, has reportedly just rolled off the production line in coastal city of Qingdao last week, so it’s expected to be hitting the streets very soon. What’s so awesome about it is its only emission is water - the temperature inside the fuel cell will be controlled to stop any nitrogen oxides from forming - so it’s doing zero damage to the environment, and at the same time, it doesn’t sacrifice any practicality.
By 2020, 80% of the world's adult population will own a smartphone THE dawn of the planet of the smartphones came in January 2007, when Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, in front of a rapt audience of Apple acolytes, brandished a slab of plastic, metal and silicon not much bigger than a Kit Kat. “This will change everything,” he promised. For once there was no hyperbole. Just eight years later Apple’s iPhone exemplifies the early 21st century’s defining technology. Smartphones matter partly because of their ubiquity. They have become the fastest-selling gadgets in history, outstripping the growth of the simple mobile phones that preceded them. The bedroom is just the beginning. Phono sapiens The transformative power of smartphones comes from their size and connectivity. The combination of size and connectivity means that this knowledge can be shared and aggregated, bridging the realms of bits and atoms in ways that are both professional and personal. As with all technologies, this future conjures up a host of worries. The naked app

The Next Big Programming Language You’ve Never Heard Of | Enterprise Getty Andrei Alexandrescu didn’t stand much of a chance. And neither did Walter Bright. When the two men met for beers at a Seattle bar in 2005, each was in the midst of building a new programming language, trying to remake the way the world creates and runs its computer software. Alexandrescu, a graduate student at the time, could’ve said the same thing to Bright, an engineer who had left the venerable software maker Symantec a few years earlier. Andrei Alexandrescu.Photo: Ariel Zambelich/WIRED The result is a programming language that just might defy the odds. C++ is an extremely fast language—meaning software built with it runs at high speed—and it provides great control over your code. Among the giants of tech, this is an increasingly common goal. In the past, the programming world was split in two: the fast languages and the simpler modern languages. In fact, Facebook is working to bridge this gap with not one but two languages. The Cape of a Superhero For Alexandrescu, D is unique.
