Present Thoughts On EV’s

I heard about a man charging his EV (electric vehicle) for 10 hours, and it only reaching 20% power. Whether you are an EV fan, opponent, or indifferent either way, you’d have to admit that is a sad display of inefficiency.

I don’t know what caused the issue, but it’s not the first concerning thing I’ve heard about EV’s in general.

Am I discouraging the use of EV’s? You may wonder. I’d simply advise people weigh the pros and cons, research for themselves.

Personally, I’m not buying one anytime soon.

Segway S-Pod Chair

I recently came across the coolest mobility vehicle I’ve ever seen to date. It’s described in advertisements and such as a self balancing electric lounge chair on wheels. I’ve seen it demonstrated in videos, it is easily controlled with a simple joy stick, or alternately with a tablet.

I have no idea on the pricing, and that’s a definite concern.

I’m still trying to research that.

What I like BEST about it, is while it’s ideal for the mobility challenged like me, really ANYONE could use it. If I had one, my son could borrow it to drive around his school campus if he didn’t want to wear himself out walking. It goes up to 24 mph.

New Notes

I can’t sleep at the moment, so decided to share some fresh art on my niche art blog and socials. I had a pretty good evening, and now it’s dead quiet here which is certainly helping my thought process. I spent some time earlier looking at three wheeled, hand controlled vehicles online that I could drive despite my impairment.

I also have the option of messaging a couple companies directly to see if they could design me something custom for a reasonable price.

Functional Art: Notes About A Carved Wooden BMW Replica

I wasn’t planning on posting again until after the parent/teacher conference and such, but I have some spare time, so I figured why not?

I came across a video earlier of a man who carved and then built a wooden car. He built it as an homage to (and in the style of) a BMW. It was pretty stunning to see the end result. Now, realistically, at least from a legal standpoint, I doubt he could take it out on a major highway or whatever without getting stopped. I did however see he was driving it around his town.

As I saw the video, it reminded me of the derby cars that used to be built by boy scouts, except on a larger scale. Despite the hours it took him to make the thing, I’m sure it was time well spent. I started thinking about something too, what society might look like if we replaced normal cars with wooden ones like the guy designed.
