On the water, Portless Catamaran transforms into a 4.5-meter boat with upper and lower decks designed for six people. The manufacturer claims that it will take only 10 minutes from removing from the trunk to bringing it to working condition.

Portless Catamaran offers 9 sq. m on the main deck, which receives shade from the upper deck, and 3 sq. m above. The top deck, which can hold up to 160kg, can be used for diving and solar panels.

The Portless Catamaran is powered by a 1 kW Epropulsion Spirit 1.0 Plus outboard motor with a 1.3 kWh lithium polymer battery. DDD Manufaktura estimates a range of 16 nautical miles or about 30 km. On a cloudless day, a 200W solar panel can keep the boat moving all day long at about 4 knots (7km/h). The built-in display shows the remaining battery power and other key information.

The Portless Catamaran is available in two versions. The standard version has a one-piece body designed for easy and quick inflation, while the second one breaks into four separate parts that are connected to each other. The second version takes 5-10 minutes longer to assemble, but the weight of each part is reduced to 30 kg, which makes it easier to carry.

Prices start at €11,920 for a one-piece catamaran and €12,620 for a four-piece version. These prices include an electric pump and a bathing ladder. Buyers can purchase several available options, such as a more powerful 3 kW electronic drive and a steering wheel.

Tesla cars have learned to detect devices that allow you not to keep your hands on the steering wheel when using autopilot

Tesla cars have learned to detect devices that allow you

The Teslascope team, who understands Tesla software updates, found something interesting in the latest FSD beta update. Tesla vehicles can now detect devices designed to simulate hands on the steering wheel while the autopilot function is in operation. If such devices are detected, the system will disable the autopilot.

In order to use the beta Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) features, Tesla requires drivers to keep their hands on the wheel. That being said, the automaker regularly asks drivers to apply some torque to the wheel in order to continue using autopilot.

This prompted some people to use some tricks. Someone just put a water bottle under the steering wheel rim, and some companies even tried to mass-produce special steering wheel pads that fool the Tesla computer.

Because the technology is still in beta and undeniably dangerous if drivers aren’t in control, Tesla is trying to get drivers to take the wheel regularly to be ready to take over.

Tesla is also increasingly using a cab-facing camera for driver attention monitoring, which can detect when drivers are not looking at the road.

According to William Lee, the company does not intend to compete with traditional smartphone manufacturers, instead Nio will try to make a device with a unique design. Naturally, it will be integrated into the ecosystem – with its help it will be possible to drive the company’s cars. The new model will be released annually.

William Lee stated that one of the reasons for the release of his phone was that the iPhone is limited in millimeter wave (mmWave) support, but this technology is used in Nio cars. It is expected that the cost of “mobile Nio” will not exceed $ 1,000.
