He previously said that he wouldn&rsquo;t sell or build the concept himself, instead letting the tech concept be open-source and available for anyone with the incredible funds to pull it off on a grand scale.</p> <p class="p2">But this seems to be a change of course - perhaps because nobody else has both the money and inclination to take the next step. Musk says it&rsquo;ll probably be built in Texas in the United States, and says he&rsquo;s considering holding annual student pod racing competitions (no, probably not exactly like in <em>Star Wars: Episode I</em>).</p> <p class="p1">Hyperloop is planned to propel people-housing pods through tubes at up to 800mph, and would be able to move passengers between San Francisco and Los Angeles - or London and Edinburgh - in about 30 minutes. However, the premise would be hilariously expensive and still sounds like sci-fi tech, so perhaps Musk&rsquo;s test track can help make its case to the powers that be.</p> <p class="p1">[Source: <a href="https://twitter.com/elonmusk">Twitter</a>]</p> <p class="p1"><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/hyperloop-everything-you-need-know/news">Hyperloop: Everything you need to know about the 768mph airtrain</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> New low-end Lumia models </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p class="p1">Since taking over branding on the Lumia line, Microsoft has been pushing the Windows Phone line further down the pricing scale - and its latest options include the cheapest new Lumia to date.</p> <p class="p2">The Lumia 435 is the first in the 400-series, and it&rsquo;s a 4in (800x480) option with Windows Phone 8.1 installed (and the latest Lumia Denim update), a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a 1560mAh battery.

We&#39;d say to employ a combination of Hailo/Easy Taxi and GrabTaxi since the latter doesn&#39;t charge for cancellation, and then substantiate that with Uber for last resort UberExec - which are always aplenty - and for its frequent promotions.&nbsp;</p> <p>We like Hailo&#39;s clean interface which only displays pertinent information, great for when you&#39;re trying to get a cab immediately upon opening the app. While GrabTaxi&#39;s is currently marred by an ad.&nbsp;</p> <p>It&#39;s almost as if Hailo is the culmination of all the different apps&#39; good points, offering Easy Taxi&#39;s cash or credit (with charges waivered) system, Uber&#39;s slick interface, and GrabTaxi&#39;s deep pool of drivers. And even adds on to that winning combination with a unique taxi-hailing formula.

One part of Reaction&#39;s solution is to bypass fossil fuels and instead rely on liquid hydrogen. Another part is Reaction&#39;s Scimitar precooled engine that manages to sustain Mach 5 flight speeds at an exhaust velocity of 40,900 m/s. Pre-cooling is important - what makes this engine special is that the air entering it is quickly cooled without blocking said engine by freezing up.</p> <p>According to the company, the Scimitar engine can power a plane capable of a 20,000 km range. Reaction has created a specific jet frame, which it calls the A2, that can seat 300 passengers and is built with a lot of similarities to Reaction&#39;s Skylon space shuttle.

Considering all the mobile components that Qualcomm has been making, they&#39;re now taking that and making them automotive-grade to use in the cars as well.&nbsp;</p> <p>Imagine a future where your entire electric car could serve as the Wi-Fi hotspot for your devices to connect to, having your car&#39;s audio system stream whatever you&#39;re listening to/watching as soon as you get in, or having your electric vehicle charge once it&#39;s parked.

Well, in the eventuality that electric vehicles become the vehicle of choice for the masses, range wouldn&rsquo;t be an issue. Why? Dynamic charging is the answer.</p> <p class="p1">There won&rsquo;t be the need for perfect alignment to get wireless charging to kick in at the frequency sweet spot of 85 kHz. While that won&#39;t disable the frequency that your keyless system works on, it&#39;s still not the safest bandwidth to get within.</p> <p class="p1">So what happens if your cat or kid crawls into the space between car and charging pad? Don&#39;t worry, Qualcomm has the contingency answer for that too.&nbsp;Termed Living Object Protection, the system can detect when a foreign object enters within proximity of the charging field. This automatically shuts the system down, and sends the owner a notification for his intervention. The mm-based radar system will be so sensitive that it can even detect the heartbeat and breathing from a distance away, so no worries about it being activated too late.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Qualcomm has a crazy genius plan for the connected car of the future" alt="Qualcomm has a crazy genius plan for the connected car of the future" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/dynamic%20charging.png?1417419840" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><iframe class="vine-embed" frameborder="0" height="600" src="https://vine.co/v/OnuuHW1betL/embed/simple" width="600"></iframe></p> <p>Sorry for the digression, we got distracted by the cat. Back to the topic of dynamic charging. The plans Qualcomm has for wireless charging doesn&#39;t stop at the pad, they include broader categories like static charging, semi-dynamic charging, and dynamic charging.</p> <p>The first could be parking spots outside your local grocers, where you park the car and get it charged while you pick up necessities.&nbsp;Davison&nbsp;puts it this way: &quot;If you can park a car, you can charge a car.&quot; There won&#39;t even be a need for perfect alignment in the future.</p> <p>The second could occur at traffic lights, where the semi-dynamic charging kicks in while you stop your electric car momentarily.</p> <p>The third and most ambitious are charging pads built into the roads themselves, juicing up your car on the drive, meaning you&#39;ll never have to stop to &quot;gas&quot; it up.</p> <p>On a much larger scale, the energy footprint of entire cities could possibly be changed with more electric vehicles powered by wireless charging. Think less air pollution. As the air becomes cleaner, windows can be opened and as such, people wouldn&rsquo;t feel the need to switch on the air-conditioning. Call it an energy revolution if you will. We&#39;re liking the potential domino effect that wireless charging can bring about.</p> <p>And it doesn&rsquo;t just end there. The different possibilities of charging wirelessly on the go? All that can be solar-powered, and the world will be free from evil pollution. That is, until someone somehow finds a way to sentence the earth to death once again.&nbsp;</p> <p>But you get the idea. It all begins with this one wireless charging pad, and from here on out, infinite potential.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Qualcomm&#039;s connected car future </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> It sounds zany, but it could be real </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-carousel-image-small"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item small image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_carousel_image_small" width="450" height="340" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/qualcomm.png?1417419840" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/qualcomm/qualcomms-crazy-genius-plan-thats-car-future/feature#comments Electric cars Qualcomm Transport Thu, 27 Nov 2014 11:14:37 +0000 Elissa Loi 1454055 at http://www.stuff.tv Uber Singapore is back with free rides and more cars than before http://www.stuff.tv/sg/uber-singapore-back-free-rides-and-more-cars/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Didn’t get to claim your ride last time?

Mother Nature would be proud.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/vWtwTrta0Zg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> That throttle must sound so good </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Negative.
