The 1l /100km Eolab reaches the finish line of the Renault's pursuit of ultra-low fuel consumption B-segment
EOLAB, which takes its name from combining the name of ‘Aeolous’ God and Ruler of the Winds in Greek mythology, and ‘Laboratory’, is capable of achieving 1l/100km (282mpg) and 22g/km CO2 emissions on the official NEDC cycle.
To achieve such low figures, the designers focused their efforts on three main areas: minimising weight, refining aerodynamics and using “Z.E. Hybrid” technology for all, a brand new initiative which permits zero emissions* motoring during everyday use.
All Streetlights in Las Vegas Strip are using Kinetic Tiles foot power
Each streetlight doubles as a Wi-Fi hotspot and charging station, and comes with a suite of atmospheric and environmental sensors. They also come with built-in surveillance cameras, which may carry potential privacy concerns. After the big success of the project in Las Vegas, the company EnGoPlanet plans a large-scale installation in New York City parks to start soon.
Mayor's prediction: All 300 single-deck buses in central London will be zero emission at tailpipe
Announced at the first annual Clean Bus Summit in London’s City Hall, the move will see emissions from the city’s bus fleet - touted as being one of the cleanest in the world - reduced even further. Following suit, a total of 24 world cities committed to rolling out over 40,000 ultra-low emission buses by 2020 at the global summit. A number of vehicle manufacturing giants, including Volvo and Wright Bus, were also in attendance.

GRAND TOUR confirms: Faraday Future FF91 is the fastest electric sports car ever build and it can learn to be faster
Electric car company Faraday Future unveiled “a new species” of car in Las Vegas: an electric sedan that will have the acceleration of a Formula One car and the ability to learn and adapt to the driver. The FF 91 would see Faraday Future compete with Tesla for the electric sports car market. The FF 91 has 1,050hp and can accelerate 0-60mph in 2.39 seconds, while the Tesla Model S P100D can reach 60mph in 2.5 seconds.
All publicly funded scientific papers published in Europe are now free to access
At present the results of some publicly funded research are not accessible to people outside universities and similar institutions without one-off payments, which means that many teachers, doctors, entrepreneurs and others do not have access to the latest scientific insights.
The heart-stopping moment when the mirror of The Biggest, Boldest, Riskiest Space Telescope James Webb first looks at the sky
A tennis court-sized telescope orbiting far beyond Earth's moon, Webb will detect infrared radiation and be capable of seeing in that wavelength as well as Hubble sees in visible light.
Infrared vision is vital to our understanding of the universe. The furthest objects we can detect are seen in infrared light, cooler objects that would otherwise be invisible emit infrared, and infrared light pierces clouds of dust, allowing us to see into their depths. Webb will unleash a torrent of new discoveries, opening the door to a part of the universe that has just begun to take shape under humanity's observations.
China's Most Frightening Game - 'Sesame Credit', becomes compulsory to play by all chinese citizens
Going under the innocuous name of ‘Sesame Credit,’ China has created a score for how good a citizen you are. Instead of measuring how regularly you pay your bills, it measures how obediently you follow the party line. In the works for years, China’s ‘social credit system’ aims to create a docile, compliant citizenry who are fiscally and morally responsible by employing a game-like format to create self-imposed, group social control. In other words, China gamified peer pressure to control its citizenry; and, though the scheme hasn’t been fully implemented yet, it’s already working — insidiously well.
