Charles Stevens of Laser Power Systems (LPS) is working on creating an emissions free turbine/electric generator powered by nuclear thorium lasers. Though thorium is gaining a reputation as the “safe” nuclear element, with all the recent controversy surrounding nuclear power, we at Inhabitat wonder if it’s worth the risk.<br />Read the rest of Laser Power Systems is Developing Cars Fueled by Nuclear Power <br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: electric car, Laser Power Systems, laser powered, nuclear power, nuclear powered car, thorium, thorium laser<br />TEST DRIVE: The Chevy Volt vs. The Plug-in Prius <br />Posted: Sun, 04 Sep 2011 06:00:13 +0000<br />Read the rest of TEST DRIVE: The Chevy Volt vs. The Plug-in Prius<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: alternative transportation, chevy volt, electric car, fuel efficiency, green automotive design, green transportation, hybrid vehicle, Laura K.

A short supply of bike racks and strict lock-up restrictions are a growing problem for some  cyclists in crowded cities, but enter the Biketower – a sweet multi-story, solar-powered, automated parking lot designed specifically for bicycles!<br />Read the rest of Solar-Powered Biketower BT 20-112 is a Multi-Story Parking Lot for Bikes!<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: bicycle design, bicycle parking lots, bicycle safety, bicycle storage, bicycle theft prevention, bike parking lot, bike racks, bike tower, Biketower BT 20-112, E-bike Mobility, euro bike awards, green transportation<br />The UK Will Open the First Civilian Airport for Drones <br />Posted: Fri, 02 Sep 2011 19:30:30 +0000<br />Drones, or unmanned aircrafts, are becoming more common and more affordable — and as a result, they’re not just for the military anymore. To meet growing interest, the UK’s Civilian Aviation Authority will soon open the world’s first airport dedicated to drones, located in Southern Wales.<br />Read the rest of The UK Will Open the First Civilian Airport for Drones <br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: air space, air transport, civilian air transport, civilian airports, civilian manned airplane, civilian manned planes, Design, drone airport, drones, environmental monitoring devices, green design, military technology, Technology, UK, uk airport, UK airports, unmanned aircraft, Wales, wales airport<br />Vycon Plans to Tap Speeding Subway Trains for Immense Amounts of Kinetic Energy <br />Posted: Thu, 01 Sep 2011 22:58:05 +0000<br />London, New York, Paris – what do they all have in common? Apart from being among the world’s most energy-hungry cities, they all have underground subway systems. These public transport systems help millions of people each day to get to and from work, but what if they could also be used to help power these metropolises? Vycon Energy, who makes industrial flywheels, believes that they can tap the immense amount of kinetic energy carried by moving subway trains to subsidize city power systems. Not only would this reduce emissions, but it would also help to avoid peak power emergencies.<br />Read the rest of Vycon Plans to Tap Speeding Subway Trains for Immense Amounts of Kinetic Energy<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: harness energy, kinetic energy, regenerative braking, subway kinetic energy, subway systems kinetic energy, subway trains, vycon energy flywheels, vycon energy regenerative braking, vycon energy subways<br />Magneter: Magnetic Highway Harvests Kinetic Energy From Cars To Generate Electricity <br />Posted: Thu, 01 Sep 2011 19:58:17 +0000<br />Using highways to generate kinetic energy from cars is not a new idea, but designer Fang-Chun Tsai has put a twist on it. He proposes using the kinetic energy from speeding cars to change a magnetic field to generate electricity. The system could be easily installed in existing cars, and it could pave the way towards a self-sufficient energy grid.<br />Read the rest of Magneter: Magnetic Highway Harvests Kinetic Energy From Cars To Generate Electricity<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: car kinetic energy, Fang-Chun Tsai, Fang-Chun Tsai Magneter, highway generating electricity, magneter electricity generation, magneter kinetic energy, magneter kinetic energy highway, magnetic highway, magnetic kinetic energy highway<br />Audi Offers a Sneak Peek of Its Futuristic Electric Urban Concept Car Before Frankfurt Motor Show <br />Posted: Thu, 01 Sep 2011 12:31:11 +0000<br />Audi will soon be revealing a super futuristic concept car with a staggered 1 + 1 seating arrangement, entry through the rear tailgate, a body composed of ultra-lightweight carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, a sliding canopy roof, and propulsion from a pair of in-wheel electric “e-tron” motors backed up by a lithium ion battery.

The decision makes UPS’s California fleet of delivery trucks its largest EV fleet and it will replace 126,000 gallons of diesel fuel used every year by UPS trucks with green electric power. The trucks will have a 90-mile range and presumably will use DC quick chargers to juice up on the go.<br />Read the rest of Brown Goes Green: UPS Purchases 100 EV Delivery Trucks for Its Next-Gen California Fleet<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: alternative transportation, electric truck, electric vehicle, Electric Vehicles International, EV fleet, EVI, green fleet, green logistics, green transportation, UPS, UPS fleet<br />Equinox Brewing’s Keg Trike Delivers Fresh Brews <br />Posted: Mon, 29 Aug 2011 22:20:33 +0000<br />Read the rest of Equinox Brewing’s Keg Trike Delivers Fresh Brews<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: beer bike, beer trike, bike beer delivery, brewery keg bike, co brewery, Colorado micro brewery, Equinox Brewery, Fort Collins bike, Fort Collins Brewery, green delivery, keg bike, keg delivery bike, Keg Trike, kegbike, micro brewery bike, Micro Brewery keg<br />Electric OSCar Gears up for Grueling Race Across South America <br />Posted: Mon, 29 Aug 2011 20:01:38 +0000<br />In the movie “The Dilemma,” Vince Vaughn and Kevin James are challenged with the task of making hybrids sexy – namely, they must create a system that makes electric vehicles growl like muscle cars. Now a team of Latvian engineers are seeking to do something similar — but they’re not making something that sounds like a sports car. They’re making a vehicle that performs like a sports car. The OSCar eO will drive through deserts and over some of racing’s roughest terrain in an international race for electric recognition.

The land speed record for electric motorcycles stands at 216 miles per hour, while the record for any kind of motorcycle stands at 367 mph. The electric Killacycle Killajoule aims to break down those barriers by breaking not just the electric record, but the overall record, to become the fastest motorcycle ever–of any kind.

While most of the world (including the US) is downgrading their space fleets - opting to either privatize or let the Russians do it all – the African Space Research Programme is constructing their very first space shuttle. The crazy thing is that the African Space Research Programme is made up of pretty much one man, Chris Nsamba and a team of volunteer engineering students. Oh, and they’re making a space shuttle in his garden.<br />Read the rest of Engineers in Africa Are Building A Space Shuttle In Their Garden<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: African Space Research Programme, African Space Research Programme design, African Space Research Programme funding, African Space Research Programme home made shuttle, African Space Research Programme plane, chris nsamba African Space Research Programme, chris nsamba home made shuttle, home made space shuttle<br />INTERVIEW: We Talk to Bicycle Library Founder Karta Healy <br />Posted: Fri, 26 Aug 2011 04:05:11 +0000<br />Last week, we showcased the Bicycle Library, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, and it was so unusual that we had to get in touch with its founder and pick his brain. We needed to know what makes a person wake up one morning and want to start a library where people take out bikes instead of books – and in a revamped double decker bus, no less?! So we caught up with Karta Healy, the driving (or should we say cycling?) force behind this mobile resource, and found out the answers to those questions and more – read on to see what he said.<br />Read the rest of INTERVIEW: We Talk to Bicycle Library Founder Karta Healy<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: bicycle library, bike library, bike rental, Eco Architecture, eco design, green architecture, green design, inhabitat interview, INTERVIEW: We Talk to Bicycle Library Founder Karta Healy, karta healy, recycled double decker bus, rent a bike, repurposed double decker bus, sustainable design, the bicycle library<br />Oliver VTOL’s Hexplane Proves Six Engines Are Better Than Two <br />Posted: Thu, 25 Aug 2011 22:26:12 +0000<br />Would you believe that six engines on a plane are not only more efficient than two, but also safer? It sounds a little crazy, but that’s the claim made by Oliver VTOL. This new VTOL “Hexplane” concept packs six engines and three wings, which apparently make the craft so reliable that you could lose any one engine or even an entire wing section without compromising the craft’s ability to fly to your destination.<br />Read the rest of Oliver VTOL’s Hexplane Proves Six Engines Are Better Than Two<br />Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: aircraft safety, airplane concept, alternative transportation, green aircraft design, green transportation, Hexplane, Oliver TOL, six-engine plane<br />FeedBurner delivers the world's subscriptions wherever they need to go.
