NASA’s “Flying Wing” Aircraft Prototype Twice as Efficient

While aviation engineers have long known that a “flying wing” aircraft would be more efficient than the traditional tubular fuselage aircraft we see today,...

Car Built by Romanian Inventor Gets 784 MPG Fuel Efficiency

Remember Justin Capra, the Romanian inventor of the jetpack? Well's he's done it again. Now, his ingenuity inspired him to build a small car that has a fuel efficiency of 784 miles per gallon! How about that?

Justin Capra: The Green-Hearted Creator of The Jetpack and Several Alternative Inventions

After presenting Vasile Karpen and his wonderful but yet not understood invention of the battery that's been running for 60 years, now it's time for another brilliant Romanian green-hearted genius: Justin Capra, the original inventor of the jet pack.

Revolting: 114 mpg Avion Sports Car Rejected for Fuel Being "Too Cheap"

There was a sports car built in 1984 by Craig Henderson and Bill Green from Bellingham, Washington, and at that time it was able to set a record of 103.7 mpg for Guinness Book(in European terms, that's 2.27 liters/100km). Now they're reviving it with the help of the X-Prize Competition.

New Engine Prototype That Mixes Gasoline and Diesel Gets 55 Percent Efficient

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have recently unveiled a concept engine that can be from 20 to 30 percent more fuel-efficient than classic models. It would also be substantially cheaper to produce, since the emissions are lower than those of conventional engines and expensive catalyst units are not needed any longer (in some cases, their price can reach that of the engine's).

Free Piston Engine: Worth Investing In It to Power Future Electric Cars?

Since the idea of economy started in humanity's mind, everybody wants to reduce the expenses, mostly on energy dependence. Nowadays, when hybrid cars and, generally, electric vehicles are starting to play a huge role in car industry, and electric technology is starting to get cheaper yearly, there still are scientists that get inspired by the old explosion engine principles, albeit they are being used for more than a hundred years and their power source is mainly based on fossil fuel.
