Zero Rolls Out a Rugged Electric Motorcycle for Special Ops | Autopia Electric motorcycles just went from practical to tactical with the Zero MMX, the first all-electric bike developed specifically for the U.S. Special Operation Forces. The MMX was built under military contract by Zero’s engineering team, and as you’d expect of a bike destined for combat, it packs a battle-ready combination of rugged, stealthy tech. The Zero is silent when stopped, barely audible while on the move, and puts out a minimal heat signature to keep the SOF safe and undetected. Naturally, the headlight can be switched off, there’s an override and reserve power to extend the range, and a specialized dash with keyless ignition that lets the rider hop on and quickly blast away as the beefed up motor puts down 68 pound-feet of torque. So what about that creek the Green Berets have to ford? All photos: Zero

Ártico Trabajo de Semana Santa Encontrándonos a poco de tiempo de nuestra entrega final, decidimos dedicarnos a trabajar un poco en el proyecto. Teniendo en cuenta que tuvimos ciertas dificultades en la realización de nuestra Pre Entrega, decidimos realizar dos cambios importantes: el primero indica que las posiciones que realizarán los jugadores serán aún más complicadas e incómodas para los jugadores, de forma que la interacción sea más dinámica y divertida entre ellos. El segundo cambio es que, para lograr generar este efecto en los usuarios, nos vimos en la necesidad de re acomodar la disposición de los sensores y los copos de nieve, ya que esto aumentaría significativamente el nivel de complejidad de cada nivel. Consideramos que durante este tiempo que pudimos reunirnos y trabajarle un poco al proyecto realizamos avances bastante representativos para lo que queremos transmitir con nuestro proyecto, así que estamos muy contentos y ansiosos por lo que sucederá en la entrega final.

Treehouses for All Occasions There's something about a treehouse that appeals to all of us. Maybe it's the view, or getting close to nature, or reliving childhood memories. There are many ways to enjoy treehouses, no matter what age you are.

This Country Is Planning Its Entire Transportation System Around Electric Tricycles There are 3.5 million tricycles in the Philippines, and they’re mostly ridden by adults. Conventional motorbikes with metal passenger sidecars welded to their sides, the trikes are one of the many quirky aspects of public life here that delight tourists and, for locals, provide the bulk of public transportation in provincial cities across the country. They’re also loud and dirty, roaring through the streets and spewing black smoke from rattling tailpipes. But the ubiquitous Manilan tricycle may soon get a makeover. With silent, no-emission engines, the fleet of e-bikes would cut down on noise pollution and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere by an estimated 260,000 tons per year. The proposal seems like a solid win for the environment, and an opportunity for the country to poise itself as a leader in sustainable transport. He’s also wary of some details of the project’s implementation.

Cityzen Sciences 25 grandes improvisaciones: escenas fuera de guión que se volvieron memorables (VIDEO) En la actuación, tanto cinematográfica como teatral y quizá también en la vida misma, si creemos en la intuición de ciertos dramaturgos y filósofos que han considerado esta realidad “el gran teatro del mundo”, improvisar es una de las habilidades que distinguen a los buenos de los malos actores, al genio de escena de aquel que solo se apega a los lineamientos dados y conocidos. Improvisar y, contra todas las probabilidades, obtener un buen resultado, admirable incluso, es la diferencia entre destacar o quedarse entre las docenas de personas que conforman el reparto regular.

Wind-powered Knitting Machine Posted by Lisa Smith | 29 Apr 2010 | Comments (3) Though you probably wouldn't be able to power much with a bite-sized wind-turbine out the window of your city apartment, this one, at least, will make your sweaters for you. This device makes no aspirations to convert wind to electrical current, harnessing the rotational energy to spin gears and knit tubes of infinite length. It's quite a smart way to think about all the ways we can harvest the potential around us. especially if applied at the scale of a factory. The machine was made by RCA grad Merel Karhof. Thanks, Rebecca!

iSketchnote La magia de la respiración En portada Ciertos ritmos respiratorios tienen un efecto muy benéfico sobre las emociones negativas. Esta es la verdadera magia de la respiración. llllllliiii Justo antes de llorar, apenas salimos del vientre de nuestra madre, realizamos el primer acto de nuestra vida: inhalar. En ese instante, al darle la bienvenida al aire en nuestro cuerpo, le dimos también la bienvenida a la vida. Muy pocas veces le prestamos atención a este fenómeno de la respiración, que está ocurriendo a cada instante. Sin embargo, el poder de la respiración es develado con la simple observación. Pero el secreto mejor guardado de la respiración -ese que deberíamos enseñarle a nuestros niños desde que son pequeños y que desgraciadamente nunca nadie nos enseño a nosotros- es que a través de la respiración podemos controlar nuestras emociones y pensamientos. La mente, por su parte, está siempre oscilando entre el pasado y el futuro, entre “¿por qué hice, por qué dije?

What’s Up With That: Building Bigger Roads Actually Makes Traffic Worse | Autopia Stuart Dee/Getty I grew up in Los Angeles, the city by the freeway by the sea. And if there’s one thing I’ve known ever since I could sit up in my car seat, it’s that you should expect to run into traffic at any point of the day. Yes, commute hours are the worst, but I’ve run into dead-stop bumper-to-bumper cars on the 405 at 2 a.m. As a kid, I used to ask my parents why they couldn’t just build more lanes on the freeway. What's Up With That Each week, we'll explain the science behind a strange phenomenon that you may be wondering about, or may be hearing about for the first time right here. The concept is called induced demand, which is economist-speak for when increasing the supply of something (like roads) makes people want that thing even more. But before we get to the solutions, we have to take a closer look at the problem. “We found that there’s this perfect one-to-one relationship,” said Turner. Now, correlation doesn’t mean causation.
