A new generation of “silent” drones. UAV eVTOL Silent Ventus with June engine successfully completed a test flight

Undefined Technologies has announced that its eVTOL Silent Ventus ion-powered unmanned aerial vehicle has successfully completed a test flight, achieving the planned flight time and lift.

During the flight duration of 4.5 minutes, the UAV demonstrated its flight characteristics, the efficiency of the power supply system, as well as the noise level below 75 dB.

“We have been on this upward trajectory for almost a year, working hard to overcome many of the technical challenges associated with cooling systems, battery life, avionics and noise reduction technologies,” said Thomas Prybanik, founder and CEO of Undefined Technologies. “This milestone validates our vision of how to make ion thruster technology viable for real-world use.”

Undefined Technologies aims to achieve 15-minute flights below 70dB by the end of next year, breaking noise limits for the cargo delivery segment. Noise is the second largest environmental contributor to health problems after air pollution, according to a WHO report, and a UN report in February declared urban noise pollution one of the world’s “top emerging environmental threats”.

“This over 4-minute flight required improvements in battery chemistry that can now provide us with higher energy densities. This improvement is part of our weight reduction efforts,” adds Thomas Benda, Jr., lead aerospace engineer at Undefined Technologies.

The main element of the UAV is the so-called “ion booster”, which generates an ion cloud to provide higher levels of thrust, up to 150% compared to current ion thruster technologies. The boost in thrust generated by the innovative technology creates the technical and commercial opportunity for ion thrusters to become a viable option.

The company claims that such UAVs will be popular in the civilian sector and the military. Undefined Technologies aims for mass production in 2024.

The cyberpunk we deserve? Twitter users were enthusiastic about the announcement of Elon Musk’s robot “Catwoman”

The cyberpunk we deserve Twitter users were enthusiastic about the

Today, Elon Musk presented a prototype of the Optimus robot – it already walks and sends air hearts to everyone. And after the official part of the event, the head of Tesla wrote the following verbatim on Twitter: “Of course, there will be a Catwoman version of our robot Optimus“.

An interesting statement was received with enthusiasm – the message received over 60 thousand likes, despite the fact that this is just a one-line announcement. Twitter users joke that through the efforts of Tesla, single men will finally be able to get a robot girlfriend.

When the robo-version of Catwoman will appear, it is not reported. Actually, Optimus itself is not yet ready: during the announcement, Musk noted that “there is still a lot of work to be done to improve Optimus and test it“. According to his forecasts, the robot will be perfect in 5-10 years. “I think Optimus will be incredible in five or 10 years, mind blowing“, – he said.

The robot will use Tesla-designed components, including a battery that sits on its torso, a chip system, and actuators to control its limbs. At the same time, the autopilot system, which is used on Tesla electric vehicles, will be installed in it. According to Musk, Optimus will cost “probably less than 20 thousand dollars“. Let’s hope the company doesn’t jack up the price of the Catwoman robot.

According to him, Pixel Watch will receive water protection (5ATM, so diving with them is undesirable) and tempered glass Gorilla Glass, there will also be a sleep monitoring system, a heart rate sensor, an ECG registration system. Also mentioned is a quick pairing mode with Pixel Buds, an emergency mode with sending an appropriate message to a number of pre-defined favorite contacts, and buyers of the novelty will receive 6 months of access to the Fitbit Premium service as a bonus.
