Twitter loosens the 140-character tweet limit

Twitter

In an effort to be more competitive in the social networking space, Twitter is removing some restrictions on what counts towards their 140-character tweet limit. People agree that the brevity in posts is what makes Twitter great and soon images, videos, and people’s Twitter usernames (@account) will no longer count. This is great news!

Facebook has 1.65 billion users at last count and no character limit, definitely a social network that Twitter “competes” with. Twitter is celebrating 10 years with 310 million users. Twitter is hoping to re-ignite more user growth with these changes.

The H2 Speed hydrogen-powered supercar

In the world of supercars, it takes a lot to stand out these days. Pininfarina, one of Italy’s top design and engineering firms, has done just that with their new “H2 Speed“.

A unique supercar concept which recently drew a lot of attention at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the H2 Speed utilizes a pair of electric motors that generate a combined power output of around 370 kW (500 hp), which is produced at a blistering 13,000 rpm. The supercar’s only exhaust emission is water!

Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles aren’t entirely new – many of them are currently deep in the development stages and aren’t about to hit the roads anytime soon. These projects are geared more towards creating alternatives to regular gasoline and diesel-powered cars. With the H2 Speed, Pininfarina hopes to fill the tiny yet ultra-expensive and very high profile supercar niche.

Funds were successfully raised for the creation of the injection moulds to mass produce these in 6 colors.

They interlock and stack either vertically or horizontally to hold game pieces, tiles, or cards.

Goodyear attempts to reinvent the wheel using Magnetic Levitation

Magnet

At the Geneva International Motor Show, Goodyear unveiled a very interesting tire concept: the “Eagle-360” – a spherical tire that allows cars to move in multiple directions. The tires are not directly attached to a car’s chassis but are instead suspended underneath its body, using magnetic levitation rather than axles in order to rotate.
