Mercedes-Banz reveals futuristic interior for EQS flagship electric sedan with 56-inch “hyperscreen”

Published

on

Mercedes-Benz announced the Hyperscreen MBUX multimedia system at the very beginning of January, and has now shown it in the interior of the finished EQS car – the electric analogue of the flagship S-Class. As you can see, the backlit Hyperscreen MBUX takes up almost the entire front panel space. Even the central ventilation deflectors had to be made narrow and long – all the rest of the space was given to the displays.

Hyperscreen MBUX has three screens. The smallest one is used in the dashboard, the other is slightly larger – in front of the front passenger, and the largest is the central one as part of the infotainment complex. The displays are united by a protective glass, and it even captures the side ventilation deflectors. All screens use OLED panels, and their total diagonal is 56 inches. The system uses a 9-core processor, 24 GB of RAM, and 12 vibration motors are responsible for the tactile response when you press the touch screen. The manufacturer does not say anything about the cost of the Hyperscreen MBUX, but there is no doubt that it is one of the most expensive media systems in the history of the automotive industry. By the way, the Burmester audio system with 15 loudspeakers is responsible for the sound in the EQS.

The images clearly show that, if necessary, the passenger’s screen can be hidden. Well, you can not even talk about the presence of leather seats and contour lighting – it is put by EQS by default. But what is interesting is that some semblance of a central tunnel has been preserved at the back, although there is no propeller shaft in the car: the EQS is built on a fully electric platform MEA (Modular Electrical Architecture), in which the battery is included in the power structure of the body.

EQS specs have not been reported, but at least 500-700hp is available. and all-wheel drive is no doubt. The car will be fully declassified on April 15 at the Shanghai Auto Show.

14 electric motors and a cruising range of 160 km. NASA’s X-57 Maxwell electric aircraft prepares for its maiden flight

Published

In the summer of 2016, NASA announced plans to create an electric X-57 Maxwell aircraft. Then it was only a concept, but two years ago we already saw a partially finished aircraft.

And now he is preparing for his first flight. The X-57 Maxwell is based on the light Italian Tecnam P2006T aircraft, which allowed NASA to significantly reduce the time it takes to create its project.

The first flight of the X-57 is scheduled for next spring. At the same time, in the existing photographs, the aircraft is equipped with only two engines, although the concept involves the additional installation of 12 more smaller ones, the blades of which fold when not in use. They will be installed later.

Tesla’s bitcoins have brought a “loss” to the company? The company’s digital asset depreciated by $ 51 million, but this is at the end of the third quarter

Tesla has published a report on the results of the third fiscal quarter of this year. And it mentions the company’s loss from investments in bitcoin in the amount of $ 51 million. More precisely, we are talking about the depreciation of the asset by the specified amount, since in the third quarter, according to the report, the company did not sell or buy cryptocurrency.

Tesla’s third quarter ended on September 30. On that day, Bitcoin was worth a maximum of about $ 44,000. At the same time, since that moment, the price of the asset has grown by one and a half times, so now the company is clearly in the black. However, according to US law, although the company is obliged to stipulate the depreciation of digital assets in its financial statements, it is not required to indicate their growth. According to some estimates, Tesla now owns more than 43,000 bitcoins, which at its current exchange rate equals more than $ 2.8 billion. In terms of the financial statement as a whole, the company generated $ 13.76 billion. Net income amounted to $ 1.62 billion, which is almost five times more than a year earlier. The automotive business earned the company $ 12.06 billion, and the company raised another $ 806 million from its energy business, which combines energy storage and rooftop solar panels. …
