The natural gas technology company Energtek Inc. has introduced a three-wheel vehicle with a two-stroke engine that has been converted to run on natural gas. Over the next year, Energtek will convert thousands of similar small vehicles with two-stroke engines for identical conversions as part of the company's commercial project in the Philippines.
The converted vehicle is a Yamaha RS100T motorcycle with a locally produced sidecar. The vehicle is now operating on natural gas utilizing Energtek's absorbed natural gas technology. Two-stroke engines powered by gasoline are cheap, but they release significantly more hazardous emissions than four-stroke engines. Many governments, such as the Philippines, are attempting to limit or ban two-stroke engines powered by gasoline. The conversion to natural gas may solve the problem.
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
