Geocopter Presents First Unmanned Helicopter

The GC-201 from Geocopter allows the US military to use unmanned helicopters for stealth missions. Designed and built like a normal helicopter, the GC-201 features a twin gas turbine engine propulsion system, lightweight carbon fiber fuselage and full automatic takeoff, mission, and landing capabilities.

It can cruise at 46MPH and can fly as high as 6,500 feet. The GC-201 carries a 66 pound sensor payload that brings its original weight to nearly 200 pounds. With the sensor payload attached, the helicopter can remain in flight only for about three hours, perfect for short missions.

Finally, A Hybrid Car That Goes 200MPH

Jaguar is planning to launch its C-X75 concept vehicle as a hybrid supercar. The C-X75 takes the cake for speed, known to achieve speeds greater than 200MPH and is expected to deliver ultra-low CO2 emissions of less than 99g/km. Finally a concept vehicle with plans through production, something that rarely happens with anything in concept form. I’ve always considered concept technology and vehicles (which I also consider tech) to be creative designs meant to innovate and inspire future creators.

Introducing The Apple iPod, Without Wires?

According to CultofMac, Apple is working on a way to synchronize iPods and iTunes wirelessly. Steve Jobs is working hard to ensure that the next generation of Apple products will be wireless, at least for the iPod. Instead of importing music, movies, and apps manually through wires, the iPods will auto-sync with your iTunes whenever it is connected to your WiFi network. I will admit this is cool only because it makes iPods easier to use, especially for people who aren’t as computer friend as others.
