New Superconductor Works At Room Temperature

Since the discovery of superconductors—materials that conduct electricity without resistance—back in 1911, their use has always been limited by the fact that they only work at below-freezing temperatures. A groundbreaking new study reports the discovery of a superconductor capable of working at room temperature, which not only liberates the material from its historic constraints but also opens doors to new applications of electric energy (like, for …

TAUR’s Innovative, Forward-Facing Stance Electric Road Scooter

From its aircraft-grade aluminum alloy frame and bigger wheels comes improved control and durability in the category

Most electric scooters rely on the kick-push method of propulsion and rider orientation. Situated partially sideways, with one foot behind the other, the rider directs the scooter forward. Once a speed threshold is reached, the electric-powered motor takes over. This provides enough stability to maneuver sidewalks and side streets, but reaching top speed alongside traffic can prove hazardous. As such, TAUR‘s innovative new electric road …
