Sci-Tech

I don’t remember this 45-minute attempt at adapting Isaac Asimov’s Robot Series for television, but I kinda want to see it. From these short clips of Robots you can tell the production was hampered by a meager budget (not to mention some questionable acting), but it still looks better than Alex Proyas’ I, Robot with Will Smith.

trexaShe’s one sexy little bitch. The world’s first fully-electric vehicle development platform, Trexa can be tailored to virtually any application to custom create your very own electric car of the future.

“The platform is highly scalable, so features such as range, suspension, torque, acceleration, and top speed can all be tailored to suit the vehicle’s intended purpose. For starters, the standard platform has an acceleration of 0-60mph in 8 sec, a top speed of 100mph, a 105 mile range, and a charge time of 4 hours (based upon an efficiency of 200Wh per mile — comparable to a Prius in electric mode).”

“Working with this simple streamlined platform, designers can build virtually any vehicle they can dream up. Trexa is also offering a vehicle developer’s kit complete with a docking system, steering wheel/pedalbox, and CAD models for designing on the platform, which makes this system as plug-and-play as vehicle design gets.”
