Hyundai Scooters are so hot right now that it seems everyone is trying to get in on them. First, we had companies like Bird and Lime, then Uber and Lyft, not to mention Segway and God knows who else, but the latest company to show up to the party is Hyundai, according to an announcement by the company on Tuesday.Yep, the South Korean car company that makes vehicles like the Veloster and the Palisade is considering producing a two-wheeled electric scooter, and here’s the kicker — it could be included with future Hyundai and Kia vehicles.If that sounds like an off-beat but cool idea, know that Hyundai didn’t think of it. Honda offered its tiny Honda City car with a foldable gasoline-powered scooter called the Motocompo in the mid-1980s, and it’s still one of the coolest things ever.Anyway, the Hyundai scooter prototype has a claimed range of 20 kilometers (that’s around 12.5 miles in old money), do approximately 12.5 mph, and unlike most of those lame rental scooters, this baby is rear-wheel drive. Do you know what that means? Wheelies, dude. Wheelies.It’ll be powered by a lithium-ion battery, and when the scooter is docked in a vehicle it’ll automatically recharge said battery. Other cool features include the addition of suspension to the scooter’s front wheel, so as you silently waft your way through a major city, you don’t rattle your fillings out because of dilapidated infrastructure.”This is the vehicle-mounted personal scooter [that] could be featured in future Hyundai Motor Group vehicles,” said DongJin Hyun, head of the Hyundai Motor Group Robotics team. “We want to make our customers’ lives as easy and enjoyable as possible. Our personal electric scooter makes first- and last-mile commuting a joy, while helping to reduce congestion and emissions in city centers.”Future developments could, according to Hyundai, include a regenerative braking system that would be able to recover up to 7% of the vehicle’s battery charge. Hyundai makes no mention of whether it’ll be able to do sick tail-whips at the skate park though.

Alien hunter spots another anomaly on Mars a monkey

first_imgET Data BasePopular Taiwanese alien hunter Scott C Waring has spotted many anomalies from NASA images over the past few years. Some of the anomalies spotted by Scott C Waring from NASA’s Mars images seemed so convincing, and it had made many people believe that aliens are living on the Red Planet. Now, Waring has released another NASA image from the Mars, that apparently shows a monkey sitting on the Red Planet’s surface.After spotting the monkey on Mars, Waring alleged that NASA may have never visited Mars, and these visuals might have been shot from Devon Island. As per Waring, if the picture was captured originally from Mars, then it could be proof of alien life on the Red Planet.”I found the original and the monkey is in it…this is 100% proof that the photo has not been tampered with. But now we have other problems. Is the rover on Devon Island in Canada? Are there monkeys on Devon island? Maybe, but not sure. Maybe NASA brought the monkey to experiment on it in the Martian environment. Maybe it could be a form of animal life on Mars. Who knows? The only way to find out, is for the public to go there,” wrote Waring on his website.A few days back, Waring has released an image that shows a bird flying in the Martian skies. The image shared by Waring went viral on social media platforms, and it compelled many people to believe that NASA is hiding some sinister secrets from the general public.Even though followers of Waring are pretty much impressed about the self-proclaimed researcher’s finding, skeptics reveal that the discoveries of Waring are classic cases of pareidolia. As per experts, pareidolia is a peculiar capability of the human brain to form recognizable images on unknown patterns.Earlier, after spotting fossil-like structures on images taken by NASA from Mars, Waring had urged United States president Donald Trump to appoint him as the head of NASA. Waring also claimed that all the secrets regarding alien life will be disclosed if he gets a chance to work as the head of the United States space agency.last_img read more
