There was a ray of hope recently for those who are looking forward to a car that’s a bit more Blade Runnery as Terrafugia’s Transition flying car made its first public flights at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. There, the Terrafugia team conducted two 20-minute flight demonstrations and also showed off the capability for the Transition’s wings to be folded up so it can be driven about like a car.

Classed as a light sports plane by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Transition is also a road-legal vehicle. . . . Read Complete Report

In a statement, the University of Birmingham said it would “defer publication” of the paper — which explains how researchers were able to subvert Volkswagen’s security system — after an interim injunction issued by England’s High Court. It said it was “disappointed with the judgment which did not uphold the defense of academic freedom and public interest, but respects the decision.” . . . Read Complete Report

According to its maker, the SP.01 is not only the “first pure electric sports car” to come out of Detroit, but it’s also reportedly the fastest, and the first to be fully integrated with a smartphone. . . .
