Aero-X HoverBike that recalls Star Wars has a new design. Available in 2017.Videos.

Francisco De Jesùs.

Two years ago AeroFex was testing its first prototype of  the Aero-X Hover Bike and recieved tons of emails, asking  for date of release because they want to buy one.

As we recall  the Aero-X Hover Bike is the first world`s intent to fly air suspended just like the StarWars bike.

What are AeroFex plans?

Aerofex intends to sell the Aero-X Hover Bike in 2017 for $85.000.- And if you would like to live the "Star Wars" dream you can pre-order now with a deposit of $5.000.-

The commercial Aero-X design combines the ducted rotors of a hovercraft with the ease of driving a motorcycle or quad bike. Such a vehicle is designed to hover above the ground at maximum speeds of 72 kilometers per hour and at heights of almost 3.7 meters off the ground, allowing it to carry two people across open terrain without the need for roads. But the fantastical vision has only become possible because Aerofex has worked to conquer tough engineering challenges involving stability and control issues that plagued similar hover vehicles in past decades.

"We’ve done a lot of work to learn how to remove the coupling effect," says Mark De Roche, chief technology officer and founder of Aerofex. "That’s the key for someone who only has motorcycle experience to be able to get on it and feel comfortable right away."
The "coupling" phenomenon comes up with both ducted rotor vehicles and open rotor vehicles such as helicopters. That means if a vehicle pilot pitches forward to go forward, the rotor vehicle may also turn left because of the aerodynamics involved in the spinning rotors -- a coupling effect that pilots must normally learn to counteract by adjusting several controls at once.
By comparison, Aero-X prototype pilots can steer the hover vehicle by simply leaning and using handlebar grips like a motorcycle. The current prototypes use so-called "knee bars" to detect the pilot's leaning direction, but the future Aero-X will likely just use handlebar grips for a more natural control scheme.
De Roche envisions the Aero-X prototype eventually being capable of carrying 140 kilograms of weight and running for about 1 hour and fifteen minutes on a full tank of gasoline. The vehicle's ducted rotors have a higher fuel burn rate than a helicopter's open-rotor design, but it costs far less than any helicopter or aircraft and is much easier to control.
Aerofex has filed several patents based on solving the stability and coupling problems that plagued early ducted rotor vehicles. One of the company's solutions includes having a shroud around the bottom of both front and back rotors to add an additional level of control for the vehicle's movements. If all goes well, the company plans to begin flight tests of the full Aero-X design by 2016.
Aerofex engineers also had to solve the problem of strong wind gusts. For that they took a hint from the quadcopter drones that have become popular among both researchers and robotics enthusiasts. Such quadcopters use ordinary smartphone chipsets that include gyroscopes and accelerometers to gauge the direction and strength of wind, so that an onboard computer can automatically compensate for the wind without human operators having to do anything. Aerofex used a similar tactic in their Aero-X prototype so that the hover vehicle automatically compensates for windy conditions.

Meet the First Harley-Davidson`s electric bike.Video.

Francisco De Jesùs.

Iconic motorbike manufacturer Harley-Davidson has revealed its first electric motorcycle. The bike will not go on general sale, instead the firm will select customers from the US to ride it and provide feedback. The bike - dubbed Project LiveWire - will travel down America's Route 66, visiting more than 30 Harley-Davidson dealerships between now and the end of the year.

Freedom and ingenuity has always shaped our nation, and our place in it. It's what inspired our founders. It compelled us to answer the call to serve. It united people around shared passions. And, inspired generations to express themselves. We share the same promise of freedom, and the same desire to expand it. That's the inspiration behind Project LiveWire, Harley-Davidson's first electric motorcycle. When it comes time to shape a next generation, we rely on American ingenuity and the very same people who got us here -- YOU. 

Join us for the ride.

LG will continue to upgrade the WebOS Smart TV platform. First version called "AFRO"

Francisco De Jesùs.
After the LG WebOS Smart TVs launch success with 1.1 million plus TVs sold worldwide, LG is projecting an upgrade version of WebOS for 2015.

LG plans to give the platform a different name to each new version, Mr. Lee said. The current version is called AFRO, named after a hairstyle that was popular in the 1970s.

"We will also continue to research how the platform can be applied in relation to other consumer electronic devices used in the home," said Senior Vice President Lee In-kyu, who runs the consumer-electronics maker's TV business.

LG sells roughly 30 million TVs a year, including low-end, traditional models.
To release an upgraded version of WebOS next year, it will be crucial for LG to manage the current team of WebOS designers and engineers in the U.S. and possibly hire more staff from Silicon Valley, Mr. Lee said.
LG plans to unveil a version of its WebOS operating system next year that will power all the company's Internet-connected TV sets and could run other home devices.

With an eye on transforming wearable devices into more than just a conversation piece, LG Electronics (LG) today introduced the highly anticipated LG G Watch , one of the first devices powered by Android Wear™, Google’s new operating system which extends the Android platform to wearables. As a wrist wearable device featuring a button-less design, the G Watch will appeal to a mass audience with its simple minimalist design, quick and “glance-able” access to useful information and seamless connectivity with other Android devices, keeping users connected wherever, whenever.

“As one of the first to market with Android Wear, LG wanted to develop a product that functions as an essential companion device but most importantly, was simple to use,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We wanted a device that would be simple to learn and so intuitive that users wouldn’t even have to think about how to use its features. That’s what the LG G Watch is all about.”

“Watches powered by Android Wear aim to show you the right information and suggestions you need, right when you need them,” said Sundar Pichai, SVP, Android, Chrome & Apps. “It's been great to work with LG on the launch of the G Watch — especially given its simple, easy-to-use design.”

At the core of the LG G Watch is a powerful and energy-efficient Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor clocking in at 1.2GHz. Paired with a low power consuming Always-On 1.65-inch IPS display with true-to-life color reproduction, the LG G Watch enhances the functionality of Android smartphones by providing quick access to useful information. The Always-On screen makes it easy to tell the time with a quick glance. Connected via Bluetooth, the LG G Watch displays messages, shows who's calling, controls music play-back and more without the smartphone ever having to be removed from a pocket or bag.

Integral to the LG G Watch and Android Wear is a simple new user experience designed around cards, which provides useful information when it’s needed, and voice recognition which allows one to ask questions and get things done easily. With voice recognition, LG was free to design the LG G Watch without any buttons or keys. Users can send text messages and search for useful information just by saying, “Ok Google”. LG and Google worked closely together from the outset to design a truly integrated experience.

The LG G Watch combines form and function in a subtle, minimalist design with an intuitive touch-based user interface. And with an Ingress Protection rating of IP67, the LG G Watch is designed to be protected from dust and water resistant for up to 30 minutes to a depth of one meter. The LG G Watch will be available in two colors — Black Titan and White Gold — and is constructed of PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coated stainless steel with a rugged silicone wristband in matching color. The LG G Watch can be personalized with any standard 22mm strap available in the market.

The LG G Watch will be available for pre-order on the Google Play Store starting June 25 in 12 countries including key markets such as the United States, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, South Korea and Japan. The LG G Watch will also be available soon after at retailers in 27 markets such as Australia, Brazil, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore and Russia.
