That rocks!

Prompted by a recent post of +Gary Munroe's, I decided to do a quick search of my personal photo library (https://photos.google.com) for the term "rock" just to see what popped-up.

Well.... you really can't do much better than this when it comes to results, can you?

I've been surprised at what it recognizes in the search. Both Cosplay and Steampunk returned results for me lol. Considering my love of shooting both subjects, not at all surprising it had results, but the fact it recognized the terms was great.

Still not quite your daily-driver, but a promising development nonetheless.

Called Stella Lux, the new vehicle can seat four and has a range of up to 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) on a fully-charged battery pack, according to ElectricAutosport.

Stella Lux
Welcome to the era of solar-powered cars! ;)
A team from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands has built a four-seat, solar-powered car. The team claims it creates more energy over the course of a year than it uses to drive.

The Stella Lux features solar panels on the roof with a redesigned body with an air tunnel through the middle of the car, which helps reduce the amount of energy needed to move forward.
There's also a tube that runs from the front to back that holds the battery cells. 

Stella Lux is also a smart car that is connected to the Internet and uses a custom-built navigation system called the Solar Navigator that enables the driver to select the most energy efficient route or the quickest route.

"The growth of the total amount of solar deployed around the world continues to look exponential, with a growth rate over the last 23 years of 38% per year. Over the last three years it’s slowed to a mere 22% per year. All exponentials become S-curves in the long run. But for now, growth remains rapid, and may indeed accelerate once more as solar prices drop below those of fossil fuel generation and as energy storage plunges in price."
Solar power now provides roughly 1% of the world’s electricity.  It took 40 years to reach that milestone. But, as they say in tech, the first 1% is the hardest.

I'm looking forward to having buyer's remorse in 5-10 years. "You mean I could have had the same system for half the cost!?"
