The innovations have not said their last word. They continue to transform our world. Here are three of them who plan to spill the ink.
Porsche with the Swiss start-up Way Ahead launches into young videos
Giving drivers the opportunity to create their own video game from a route they choose, a genius idea that is being developed by Porsche and the Swiss start-up Way Ahead Technologies . Drivers must register the amount of the route using a specific application on the smartphone installed after the stop. Registrants can be transferred automatically through software that converts registrations into a 3D environment. Logic uses artificial intelligence to capture a route and its surrounding features. They are then reproduced as faithfully and as quickly as possible with a 3D digital form. The unique route game file generated is compatible with a number of racing video games, including “Assetto Corsa”.
Creating a video game is not easy and sometimes takes several years. With Virtual Roads, Porsche aims to create a video game in just a few clicks.
A stylish inflatable and deflatable helmet for cyclists
The Strasbourg company Bumpair briefly developed and marketed an “air technique” for inflatable sailing helmets according to the European standard EN 1078. Usable not only for cyclists but also for new modes of mobility such as electric scooters, segways. A new product, usable not only for cyclists but also for new modes of mobility, which offers maximum protection. Bumpair is one of the three nominated in the “Protection of two-wheelers” category of the 2022 Road Safety Innovation Award. The idea is to have a “util” that protects the head and knows how to adapt to the new constraints imposed on the lifestyles of urbanites. Even so, after an impact, the strength integrity of the shell is not affected. It is a responsible and ecological product. It also offers a textile product, with an additional 88% of recycled and technical fabrics from France.
Taxis in space, reality or utopia?
The Chinese company Space Transportation at my point “a rocket with wings”. Passengers could go to the other side of the globe in record time. Tests are underway before the next annual, with a first flight for 2024 and a manned flight in 2025. Space Transportation plans an orbital flight with a team in 2030. An intense program for this company, created only in 2018, of which I raised $46.3 million in August. The Virgin Galactic competition is set to leave suborbital volumes in July 2021, with founder Richard Branson on board and Blue Origin to send the first space tourists to the last. But this idea is very expensive and it is necessary to have the means because it will be necessary to invest in infrastructures to allow the rockets to land and take off. Which is no small feat!
