Why combustion engine cars are dead #Tesla #tsla #eco

At some point there may have been an argument against electric cars that was valid, but not any more.

Now things are different. Combustion engine cars are nothing but fossels from a bygone era.

Now there is only one type of motor to put in a car and that's an electric one.

An electric motor not only provides a clear view of humanities endgame for transportation without pollution, it also offers the one thing that will convert die hard car enthusiast once reluctant to embrace the technology; Power. Real, go faster power.

We may not have all the infrastructure in place to provide all the electricity we need greenly in every part of the world, but that's solvable and there are many parts of the world where renewable electricity is generated.

If you don't believe the writing is on the wall for combustion engines, just take a look at this youtube video where some lucky Australians get to race a Tesla Model S P90D against a very capable V8 (If you have never been to Austalia, let me tell you, they love V8's, they even have their own racing events specifically for fully tuned  V8's):

Please note: this looks like an older video, the Tesla Model S P90D is now available with the option for even more power and instead of "insane mode" it now can be configured (if you pay extra) with "Ludicrous mode" which brings the 0-100kmh figure to just 2.8 seconds.

Watch as a Tesla eats up a V8 and then is surprised as another, more powerful challenge arrives…

This cool #robot won’t fall over as long as you know how not to. #robotics

I would love to make robots. Please, someone give me a job making robots. It looks like fun (hard work, but rewarding).

I came across this cool robot which solves the problem of keeping balance by relying on the connect human to make care of that for them. You’ll understanding after you’ve watched the video.
