Nissan has just unveiled its prototype for the world’s fastest electric racing car that will be able to achieve speeds of 186 mph.

The ZEOD RC (Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car) will race next year at the Le Mans 24 Hour, the world’s oldest active sports car race in endurance racing that started 90 years ago. The goal of the race is to balance speed against a car’s ability to run for 24 hours without any mechanical damage to the car.

The prototype will use the same lithium battery technology that was used in the Nissan LEAF, launched two years ago. The LEAF became the world’s best-selling, all-electric car and was followed by a racing-car version powered by the same 107-hp engine.

Although current battery technology does not have enough storage capacity to race an all-electric car, the ZEOD RC designers see this vehicle as a major step in the “electrification” of racecars.

When designing the ZEOD RC, creators focused on packaging and aerodynamics to ensure better racing and energy efficiency.

Hurry up and put a projector in my phone, Intel

nice design


For several years now, Intel (s intc) has used its annual Research@Intel event to showcase an interactive projected display. The idea is that any surface can be turned into a space to flip through photos, watch videos and even compose documents. At today’s event in San Francisco, people crowded around a table to doodle and type messages with their fingers on a projected screen.

It’s easy to see why the technology has wide appeal. Most people have made the leap from a physical keyboard to a touchscreen on their phone or tablet, and it doesn’t feel very different to type on a tabletop as opposed to a screen made of Gorilla Glass. It may even be easier, since a user can adjust a projected screen to be as small or large as they wish.

An Intel expert raised a brilliant application: mobile phones. As the need and desire to interact with data…

How-To: 3D Print a Model of your Brain


Reddit user intirb recently posted a detailed tutorial on how to 3D print a model of your own brain using an MRI scan. If you haven’t had your head checked lately (I should hope you haven’t had to), intirb suggests inquiring in local university neuroscience departments to see if you can participate in a clinical trial in exchange for the MRI scans. Once you have the file of your grey and white matter cut into thin slices, you can import it into a program called FreeSurfer. It’s a highly specialized piece of software, and familiarity with Linux is recommended to use it, although there are plenty of online resources to help you out.

FreeSurfer will generally take 1-2 days for an average desktop computer to process the MRI data and convert it into an STL file. The resulting file is so complex that it needs to be brought into MeshLab for simplification. Most programs that handle STL files cannot work with objects having more than 20,000 faces. Meshlab is used to reduce the file to below that threshold.

Once this process was complete, intirb had success with dumping the STL straight into his MakerBot. Using this method, you can have a model of your own brain after just two to three hours of printing.
