Sure, you can still buy the 2020 Nissan 370Z but why would you? Nissan just filed for a 400Z trademark application and is likely working on announcing this car sometime next year. Expect the Nissan 400Z to take styling cues from the old Datsun 240Z. Technical specifications are still a mystery but rumors say this car will source a rear-wheel-drive setup from either the Infiniti Q50 or Q60. Fingers crossed they get it right. ...

Let me start off by saying that internal combustion outboard motors have way more power, but that isn’t the point with this one. The Evoy Pro is the equivalent to a 150-horsepower gasoline motor and runs at 90 kW nominal and 150 kW peak. This product is still evolving but looks promising for places where you need a quiet or less polluting solution. ...

Another vehicle is about to join the electric party – the backhoe loader. The construction company, Case, has introduced the first fully electric backhoe loader named Project Zeus (or 580 EV). The Case 580...

Jotun HullSkater Cleaning Robot

Things in the water tend to get algae, barnacles, mussels, etc… growing on them. With boats, this biofouling is a problem because it makes ships less efficient. A less efficient boat goes slower, uses more fuel, and expels more exhaust. Not good.

Additionally, some of these hitchhiking organisms end up traveling with the boat to non-native areas where they cause other issues.

Enter Jotun, a Norwegian company, who collaborated with a Swedish company, Semcon, to develop the HullSkater robot. The HullSkater is designed to work with a proprietary silyl acrylate-based hull coating. Once a ship has this coating the hull scrubbing robot can get to work using its four magnetized wheels. Each wheel has its own motor.

The craziest part of this robot is that it isn’t autonomous or ship controlled – instead, it is controlled remotely by Jotun staff. The remote staff use the HullSkater’s three cameras and four spotlights.
