Has Joby Cracked The Power Problem To Make Electric Air Taxis Work?

As a college freshman in 1992 interested in building aircraft capable of taking off and landing vertically, JoeBen Bevirt landed in the right place: the lab of flying car pioneer Paul Moller at the University of California, Davis.

But despite deep respect for Moller, Bevirt soon concluded that it wasn’t going to work. The rotary gas-powered engines Moller was developing for his Skycar were intolerably loud and research Bevirt did on batteries led him to believe it would be decades before they would contain enough energy at a low enough weight to make a quieter electric vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft possible. He turned to robotics instead.

A few decades of battery

Intel and Nvidia Chips Power a Chinese Surveillance System

URUMQI, China — At the end of a desolate road rimmed by prisons, deep within a complex bristling with cameras, American technology is powering one of the most invasive parts of China’s surveillance state.

The computers inside the complex, known as the Urumqi Cloud Computing Center, are among the world’s most powerful. They can watch more surveillance footage in a day than one person could in a year. They look for faces and patterns of human behavior. They track cars. They monitor phones.

The Chinese government uses these computers to watch untold numbers of people in Xinjiang, a western region of China where Beijing has unleashed a campaign of surveillance and suppression in the name of combating terrorism.

Chips made by Intel and Nvidia, the American semiconductor companies, have powered the complex since it opened in 2016. By 2019, at a time when reports said that Beijing was using advanced

Exclusive games power Sony’s sky-high space-age console

Editor’s note: The PS5 is just hitting stores, and online services and features won’t be stress-tested until the console is widely available to the public. We consider this a review in progress, and will update it extensively over the next several weeks, adding a final review score when appropriate.

The PS5 next to the Xbox Series X. 


My PS4 almost made it. It was a launch-day PlayStation 4 from 2013, and it worked great right up until the last few months, like it knew it was about to get the Marie Kondo treatment and replaced by the new, much-advanced PS5. The seven-year-old system still played games fine, but the optical drive mechanism grew confused, giving off random beeps, as if it were trying to eject a ghost disc. 

And it was right to be worried. The powerful new PlayStation 5 console towers over its predecessor, both

University of Pennsylvania Introduces Underserved Youth to the Power of Design

University of Pennsylvania Introduces Underserved Youth to the Power of Design

This past summer, the nonprofit design practice, PennPraxis, in partnership with The Fresh Air Fund, piloted a new program, Virtual Design Studio, that sparked the imaginations of nearly 150 students to show how design has the power to change the built environment. Their courses, which were taught by University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design graduate students, generated multiple designs for a nature center operated by The Fresh Air Fund and public spaces in New York City and offered children an introduction to explore future careers in design that could have a lasting impact on their communities and the design professions for years to come. Over the course of seven weeks, these students committed over 150 hours

Software Without Geospatial Power Has ‘Lost’ The Plot

We all know how locked down and controlled 2020 has been. Paradoxically perhaps, this very act of containment has driven an increased use of world mapping data and geospatially-aware software, as we seek to find out what’s happening around the planet. Right now, we really don’t want to be lost on the map, more than ever.

A large number of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) news reports have featured local, national and global statistics graphically depicted across mapped-out regions of the planet. Behind these color-coded charts, graphs and diagrams are software programs designed to ingest, process, analyze and deliver accurate location-based data to provide us with a geospatially-aware representation of what’s happening.

In many cases, the data these applications use draws upon the same information source as is used by public sector organisations, governments, emergency services and businesses. In

Financially troubled startup helped power Trump campaign

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — President Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign was powered by a cell phone app that allowed staff to monitor the movements of his millions of supporters, and offered intimate access to their social networks.

While the campaign may be winding down, the data strategy is very much alive, and the digital details the app collected can be put to multiple other uses — to fundraise for the president’s future political ventures, stoke Trump’s base, or even build an audience for a new media empire.

The app lets Trump’s team communicate directly with the 2.8 million people who downloaded it — more than any other app in a U.S. presidential campaign — and if they gave permission, with their entire contact list as well.

Once installed, it can track their behavior on the app and in the physical world, push out headlines, sync with mass texting operations, sell

NuScale Power Applauds Ford Government’s Commitment to Resumption of Planning Activities for New Nuclear Development

NuScale Power extends sincere congratulations to Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and the Government of Ontario for today’s leadership and commitment to resume planning activities for future nuclear power generation development at the Darlington site and for the integration of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) as part of Ontario’s clean energy future.

Today’s important announcement builds upon the historic 50-year legacy of nuclear energy in the Durham Region and ensures nuclear power remains a cornerstone of Ontario’s energy supply mix for many decades to come. This is excellent news for the Durham Region and the Province, as it looks to further leverage its well-established and renowned nuclear expertise, skilled workforce, and robust supply chain that spans Ontario to continue to benefit all Ontarians.

Ontario and Canada’s commitment to SMR development and advancing the technology’s myriad applications is commendable. NuScale feels strongly that our proven and U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved, recognized,
