Earlier this week, Ericsson hit a crazy-fast 5Gbps wireless speed in a 5G trial. Too bad it's only in a lab. Commercial deployment won't happen until at least 2020.

Rimac Automobili To Supply Supercar To Formula E Championship

Pioneering electric car company Rimac Automobili has announced that it is to supply the new all-electric FIA Formula E Championship with one of its exclusive Concept_One supercars. 

The fully-electric one-of-a-kind car, which can accelerate from 0-60mph in the same time as a Formula E single-seater, will be supplied for use by the championship’s Race Director during all race events, allowing them to conduct track inspections and other duties whilst producing zero emissions. The Concept_One will also be used for passenger laps during Formula E events.

Based in Croatia, near Zagreb, Rimac Automobili is a family of enthusiasts, engineers and designers that set up in 2009 to find new ways of making cars faster, and to prove to the world that electric cars can be fun – complementing the ethos of the Formula E championship. 

 The Concept_One features an advanced powertrain consisting of four individual drive systems, each consisting of a very powerful proprietary permanent magnet synchronous motor and gearbox unit. Each of the four systems drives its own wheel independently, introducing new levels of handling and adjustability through the Rimac-All-Wheel-Torque-Vectoring System. With a power output of 1088hp and torque levels of 1600Nm from 0 to 6500rpm, each wheel can also independently accelerate or decelerate in a fraction of a second helping to give superb handling and driving experience. Of course, like the Formula E cars, being fully-electric the Concept_One also produces no emissions.

The demand for clean energy innovation is rising, but R&D hasn't grown to meet the challenge. Bill Gates recently called for a massive increase in energy research. Sister site TechRepublic has the story.

Get the SolarJuice FX at Clean Energy Week - Yes, this is a gratuitous plug, but I just had to let you know that a very rare opportunity has come up in fact; something that has never happened before in Australia's history! You know I am a massive fan of Zero electric motorcycles, right? We'll, when the great guys at SolarJuice said to [] http://ow.ly/2JyWo1
