Unemployed Innovation

Jan-11-10 By Kristeen
Unemployed people are taking matters into their own hands and minds by putting the creativity and skills they have to use in the field of innovation. For some, losing their jobs may be the perfect incentive to kick start that idea that has been lurking in their minds for the past months, or even years. Experts say tough economic times often lead to new inventions as people out of work have more time available and are more willing to take risks. Technology never stays still and never ceases to amaze; what you may see or hold in your hands today could be radically different tomorrow. Now is the best time to take responsibility of your own future.

VW Hybrid Hits US Market

The new face of Volkswagen was presented to the public at the Detroit Auto Show this morning and people are liking the style and idea behind the New Compact Coupe (NCC). The scaled down Jetta gasoline electric hybrid two door compact car is powered from a 1.4-liter gasoline engine rated 150 horsepower, and a 27-hp electric motor fueled from a lithium-ion battery, so the car could run strictly on electricity. The gas engine not only shuts off when not needed, the transmission decouples it from the rest of the drivetrain so the car coasts easily, saving fuel. VW says, "the concept car can run at 45 miles per gallon and emits just 98 grams of CO2, a greenhouse gas, per kilometer."

The new Audi concept cell car boasts a sleek aerodynamic design, but its passenger functionality is a whole other question. Sure, it has an independent axle and center turning drive shafts, and yes, electric motors inside the wheels to promote a kinetic energy recovery system.
