Hey John, Apologies for the confusion. we had some upload issues and than the project zip was corrupted. We are looking to rebuild the sample soon. I will let you know when it is done.

Why people demand a file system in a tablet is beyond me. As long as you have access to your data and saved files, why does anyone care?? Obviously the file system is there, users just don't have access to it, but why is it so crucial that user access is possible?

Well, with iCloud, if you're not on WiFi you won't be able to access your files stored there. Now that I'm thinking a bit more deeply on this, can't you still save locally on device? I could back when I had my 4th gen iPad, that I sold.

On my Nexus 7 I could save locally using Office. Why I can't use it anymore is a rather embarrasing story and if you want to know don't ask.

We've put together a gallery of recent images from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. See them again or for the first time here:
We’re used to seeing Superman as in control and good tempered. He may be a man of action and willing to throw a punch in the name of justice, but rarely does he get mad.

Ow yeah....the 2017 #CamaroSix ZL-1 was spotted on #Nurburgring , doing what it does best !

I'm really hoping the final weight will be significantly less then the 4000lbs+ ZL-1 carried around last time and the handling capabilities will get even more razor-sharp!

The engine IS the LT4 as it can be heard @ 1:45 in the video, so, here's over 4 minutes of ear shredding sound of #Chevy LT4 V8 music !

Project 2&4: This is what Honda is about!
I love Motorcycle engines and I love Go-karts, this is like the greatest combination possible of both!

87 lb-ft (118 Nm) may not be a lot but it'll work just fine when your car only weighs 892 lbs!

I love revvs and a fast revving engine, this has both with a 14k rpm redline with torque coming in at 10k rpm!

The fact that it's a V4 makes it really unique in the way it must rev. I bet it's incredibly smooth!

The really Cool Stuff!

It's based on the Honda RA272! The first Japanese Car to win Formula 1!

The engine is a modified RC213, a Competition grade MotoGP engine!

Press Release


Winner of Honda's 'Global Design Project' to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Cabin-less structure features a floating seat design for immersive driving experience

Powered by Honda's MotoGP RC213V engine, modified to run on public roads

'Honda Project 2&4 powered by RC213V', the winning entry from Honda's 'Global Design Project', will make its global debut at the 66th Frankfurt Motor Show at stand B11 in Hall 9.0.

Embodying the concept of 'creative craftsmanship', Honda Project 2&4 celebrates Honda's position as the world's leading engine manufacturer, providing engines to 28 million people per year across two- and four-wheel automotive, power equipment, marine and aerospace applications.

An example of the continuous effort by Honda to design an ever-more immersive driving experience, Honda Project 2&4 brings together the brand's unique capabilities in two- and four-wheel mobility. Featuring the RC213V competition motorcycle engine, which has been modified to run on public roads, Honda Project 2&4 provides the freedom of a motorcycle and the manoeuvrability of a car.

Its exceptional power unit, developed for the world-class MotoGP motorcycle racing series and specially tuned for the public road, is a 999 cc V-4 four-stroke unit and conforms to Honda's 'The Power of Dreams' guiding philosophy that inspires innovation and originality. Peak power output is over 215 PS at 13,000 rpm, while peak torque of over 118 Nm is delivered at 10,500 rpm. Transmission is provided by a six-speed DCT gearbox.

Inspired by the global creativity of one 'Team Honda'
Over 80 designers and creators participated in the in-house 'Global Design Project' competition, which is part of Honda's initiative to inspire creativity as one 'Team Honda'.

The objective of the annual contest between Honda design studios is to challenge team and project members to share one goal and achieve high targets.

Honda Project 2&4 is an example of what this stimulating challenge can generate thanks to the differing qualities of each participant. Conceived by Honda's motorcycle design studio in Asaka and designed in collaboration with the automobile design studio in Wako, Honda Project 2&4 seeks to create an intense driving experience by combining the most thrilling elements of riding a motorcycle with the most engaging characteristics of driving a car. The result not only showcases the creativity flowing through Honda's design studios, but also challenges expectations of the future of mobility.

Conceived for immersive driving thrills
Drawing on Honda's racing heritage, the body design and engine position has been inspired by the legendary Honda RA272 of 1965. The structure reveals the core frame and functional parts of the car, much as would be more customary for a bike, and is similarly compact. Overall length is 3,040 mm, width 1,820mm and height 995 mm. A resulting weight of just 405 kg maximises the impact of the power of the mid-mounted engine which, together with the low centre of gravity, ensures an exceptionally high level of responsiveness.

The exhilarating feeling created from the open cockpit is significantly enhanced by the driver's seat, uniquely suspended just above the road. The 'floating seat' design places the driver as close to the action as possible, evoking the freedom of a bike and completing the immersion provided by Honda Project 2&4's extreme performance, 14,000 rpm red line and unique engineering.

Earth orbit isn't so much "high" as "fast." The ISS routinely passes closer to my house than Los Angeles; it wouldn't be a terribly far commute. The only problem is that, if I were to travel in a straight line those 249 miles up to touch it, I would then simply be 249 miles above the ground, and what would happen next is technically known as "falling."

Things stay in orbit not by being high up, but by moving fast enough that they continually fall towards the ground and miss. Draw a line between yourself and the center of the Earth; gravity is pulling you along that line. Point your nose perpendicular to that line, and go: your normal straight-line motion is moving you away from the Earth. The art of orbiting is simply the art of keeping those two things in balance, so that you're moving so quickly through space that you're losing altitude through falling at the same speed that you're gaining it through hurtling.

Of course, you have to be going kind of fast for this to work. The ISS travels at a steady speed of 7.6km (4.76 miles) per second. 

This is why spacecraft don't simply fly straight up; they fly up about 26,000' to get out of the thickest part of the air, then turn 90° and thrust for speed. (This post talks more about why that makes more sense than taking off horizontally like an airplane:

It probably won't surprise you that when you're flying at this speed, running into things is not a good idea. The picture below is from a test run by the ESA (the European Space Administration) of a "hypervelocity impact." The block is made of solid Aluminum, and was cut in half after the test to see what happened. The pellet is not the one that was used in the test; you can see parts of the pellet used in the test in the form of those smears along the inside of the crater. At 6.8km/s, the impact blew the crater you see into the block of metal, and the shock wave in front of it opened up that second cavity at the bottom.

Note that the speed here was only 6.8km/s. Oribtal speed is a function of altitude alone; anything flying at the ISS' altitude will be going at 7.6km/s. But it might be going the other way, which means that collisions with random debris in orbit could happen at speeds as high as 15km/s. Meteoroids coming in from elsewhere in the solar system could be flying as fast as 72km/s.

The ESA's page ( about these hypervelocity impact tests is full of wonderful understatements. An impact of any 10cm object against any spacecraft would "most likely entail a catastrophic disintegration of the target." (I should say that space travel includes phrases like "hard start" for what happens when fuel and oxidizer accumulate in a rocket engine's chamber before the engine ignites, and "spontaneous disassembly" for what happens if the airframe is separated into multiple pieces on an unscheduled basis. For those outside the field, those translate as "the engine explodes" and "the spacecraft explodes," respectively)

The thing I keep thinking about when I see this picture is imagining being aboard a spacecraft – especially something big, like the ISS – and hearing a loud "bang" resonating throughout the ship. That's all you would know at first: something, somewhere aboard, just caused the entire ship to shake.

Space travel is not for the faint of heart.
