This is the world's first 3D printed powerboat. Boasting a sleek, shiny coat of paint in ‘snapper rocks blue’, MAMBO spans 6.5 meters long by 2.5 meters wide. With a dry weight of approximately 800kg, the boat is equipped with a navigation system, cork flooring, white leather seats, and 115 cv engine. The vessel was built by Italy’s Moi Composites Srl. who say their uniquely-shaped boat cannot be achieved with traditional manufacturing. Instead, it was built using Moi's Continuous Fiber Manufacturing process which uses a computer and 3D printer to simultaneously build and shape the boat by adding individual layers of composite materials that are then cured by laser. The boat was unveiled at this year's Genoa International Boat Show.
Futuristic VTOL High-Speed Business Jet Can Land On Almost Any Surface
Is this the future of business jets? South African aircraft manufacturer Pegasus Universal Aerospace has developed Pegasus Vertical Business Jet (VBJ) a lightweight hybrid passenger aircraft with vertical take-off and landing capabilities allowing to land almost anywhere. Thanks to its cool-air fan technology, it’s even safe to land on grass or on wooden decks. It's ability to landing on a multitude of surfaces eliminates the need to travel to and from an airport heavily reducing travel time for passengers. At first glance, the Pegasus VBJ looks like a typical small-size private jet for the more experienced eyes, they may notice a difference - the shape of the wings. The jet has a traditional propulsion system that allows it to take off and land on conventional runways and fly like a regular airplane but its vertical thrusters integrated into the wings achieve the necessary lift so that it can land and take off vertically. The Pegasus VBJ has a capacity for a maximum of 7 passengers.
The UK initially planned to ban the sale of new cars that run on only gasoline or diesel by 2035.
