The road to the future can be great, especially with a great new off-road vehicle to take you there. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—Scientists and engineers have come up with some exciting technology
for now and the near future.
Five Great Ideas
1. For instance, physicists at Wake
have developed a fabric that converts subtle differences in temperature into
electricity. It sounds shocking but it can safely be used in a cell phone
case you carry in your pocket to boost the phone's battery charge by 10 to 15
2. You can soon feel like a space princess every time you call up your
friends, since it's been predicted 3-D hologram video calls will be available
in the next few years.
3. Chefs at the Institute
of Culinary Education
use a computer to discover new flavor combinations, making healthy eating
more fun and comfort fun food more varied.
4. For some good clean fun, the Wyss Institute at Harvard is working on
household cleansers that bind to germs and change color depending on the
5. New to the off-road industry is the world's first and only intelligent
suspension system. Found on the RZR XP Turbo EPS DYNAMIX Edition, the system
is smart enough to monitor critical driver and vehicle inputs 200 times per
second, capable enough to continuously adjust each individual shock on the
fly, and so dynamic that instead of having to choose between a plush ride or
performance, you can now get the best of both every time you ride. You just
pick your preferred riding style:
• Comfort: more plush than any other ride in the industry. Designed for
cruising around and eliminating the small chatter.
• Sport: the ultimate blend of performance and comfort for high-speed
• Firm: cranks all four shocks to max stiffness for the firmest suspension
in the industry. Designed for extreme encounters and nasty terrain.
RZR DYNAMIX's real-time adjustments come to life through the revolutionary
RIDE COMMAND® system. The glove-touch, weather-resistant, 7-inch
display indicates the suspension control system status—including compression
dampening, selected mode, g-force, pedal position, steering angle, brake
status and diagnostics—allowing riders to visualize the real-time control.
